    what i hate about these (and the color pencils i got) is that they dont have any kind of like labeling or numbering, so when i want to go back to a certain color i get lost cuz they can be really similar. i guess i could make my own labels or something but im lazy and there's a lot of them

    That sounds kinda like the little zip up thingy I have for my colored pencils



    I hated that too. I numbered them myself, then wrote down the numbers in a notebook next to scribbles that matched the color.

    Then I lost the notebook, but that's beside the point.

    IT was storming so I had some time to color. Can't finish it, hands are hurting >.>

    I don't know why, but the skin colors i used didn't blend properly, You can't see it as bad in the picture, but there's lots of weird lines.

    All of her books are so pretty. That's where that pirate one I colored is from. (Not this book, but this artist)

    I think the fur looks good :eek:

    also do you (or anyone else here) use oil pastels? I just bought some for the first time and I kind of like how it turned out but I don't really know what I'm doing

    I haven't, I want to try them at some point, but I'm not allowing myself to buy any more coloring utensils until all the ones I have now are used up.

    Thanks <3 I stole the idea from facebook. (A video I linked on the forum somewhere last week) taped a little piece of paper down and colored around it and it worked super well :eek: I was pretty surprised. I need to buy one of those paint pens so I can make stars, the gel pen stars didn't show up at all. .-.

    Also I Just went scrolling through a bunch of pages seeing if you posted yours so I could see it and I couldn't find it. In case you see random old post likes.

    Oh, tell me how paint pens work when you end up with one!!! I haven't colored in a while, but will be ready to dig my books out again after Christmas. I will have to try your moon trick :twohearts:

    3rd time using oil pastels. I'm not good at realistic stuff in any medium, but I think I did halfway decent.
