Thank you! Yes, I see what you mean about the texture. Its probably because I didn't color the original. I scaned the original line art, then scaned it, printed it, then colored the scan. I do this because I want to keep the original line art, and also I want to have a back up in case I royaly screw up the coloring. I should probably put this into photoshop and touch it up. Thanks!
Thank you so much! Well I use prismacolor pencils (which I love), and I'm assuming from looking at your work you use them as well sometimes...in order to obtain this color you have to color over your picture over and over and over with the pencils. This allows the soft lead in the prismas to build up on the paper and saturate it with color. I also use my white pencil ALOT too (I bought a couple extra white pencils since I use them so much). I go over the light colors, such as the skin, with it, then I use the peach colors and go over it in white again to blend it, then use the peach, over and over etc...it can take you hours to color, but I think in the end its worth it. Thanks for asking, I hope that helps :)
