Love the gorgeous colouring you did, I feel the light blue outline gives this coloured image a very special feel!
Your coloring is beautiful! May I ask what paper you used here? Thank you.
The Kraft paper I use is Neenah desert storm. Either the 80lbs or the 110lbs whichever I have on hand
Thank you. Just lovely!
Is it worth waiting until I can afford the 120 count of Polychromos pencils or is the 60 count a good mix of colors?
I would wait. I hate to say that to people because it a) sucks to wait b) is of course more money. But I find lots of the colours I use the most come in the 120 set and not in the 60.
Thank you. I love your coloring and the fact that you list your pencils used. I don’t want to try to substitute colors until I am really confident in using the pencils.
