Carbothello pastel pencils produce an overall softer appearance. They are drier than colored pencils which allows for easy blending.
Graphite and charcoal pencils offer a range of values that bring incredible depth and dimension to a drawing. My preferred medium is graphite because I am drawn to the classic look of black and white. I feel the same way about photography and film. Using colored paper brings another dimension to graphite drawings using white charcoal for highlights and black charcoal for cast shadows.
My favorite colored pencils to work with are Prismacolor, they are soft and waxy and render fine details. Colors are created by layering to exactly match your pet’s coat colors.
The secret to a great pet portrait is to capture their eyes!
