Prismacolor pencils & brown paper
So today my Prismacolor pencils arrived. Yay! I was actually really surprised how fast they came, I only got a dispatch email yesterday. I couldn't wait to try them out after hearing so many good things about them. Before I bought them I'd been using some WHSmith ones, which were pretty decent for £7.00. I'd say that the colours are just as good as the Prismacolors. But the Prismacolors have a better variety of skin tone colours, and they blend really nicely.

I did this drawing because I've always wanted to draw Daphne Groeneveld, I think she has such a pretty little face! It's not quite finished yet though, I think I might shade the face a bit more and add a few strands of hair. I don't know, I'm indecisive sometimes.

Hope you all had a good Bank Holiday! But if you're on your summer holidays anyway, it probably makes no difference. :)
