New Colored Pencil Works, Colored Pencil Tip & Colored Pencil Resource of the Week

Hi Everyone,
So sorry I haven't updated in a while. I have been so busy with school, I just haven't had much time to work on any colored pencil artwork. I made it a point to set homework aside to post something today.


I am putting school work aside on Friday, October the 26th and maybe possibly the 27th to throw out some ACEO and other sketches. So if you are interested in checking the sketchfest out and purchasing any of my sketches check it out here  http://www.ellenmilliongraphics.com/sketchfest/index.php

Colored Pencil Tip of the Week


A video on colored pencil tips by Janie Gildow focusing on the basic colored pencil techniques.

If you search for colored pencil tutorials or drawings at YouTube, you will find some amazing helpful informative videos to help you grow as an artist. I think it is important to see how other artists work with the medium you like to work in. You might discover helpful tips, ideas, and techniques you never knew about.

  1. I can relate to your comment about having a hard time talking to people, I think its because I can convey more in a drawing than I can verbally. If I am relaxed around people, no problem; with unfamiliar people and situations I become awkward and many times seem to stumble over my words. (sigh)

    Thank you, Carol, for your tips and links! I, for one, really appreciate them!
