@03:26Not sure why I said "gum arabic". Gum Arabic is a binder used in watercolor so I must've had painting on the brain. The eraser is just a 'gum eraser'.

@01:49Good Starter Colors for Skin:
    Peach - A good base tone for skin.
    Light Peach - A good highlighting color for skin.

    Dark Umber - Great for deep shadows in skin. One of my favorite colors to work with.

    Indigo - Good for adding a hint of cool color to deep shadows.

    Black - A general helpful color for accentuating outlines.

    White - A useful color for smoothing out your layers (aka. burnishing).


Other Good Starting Colors:
    Sienna Brown - Used for shading in skin and earthy colored things.

    Beige - Good skin tone for other nationalities (Asian, hispanic, etc).

    Crimson Red - Primary color for general use. Also good to accent blush tones in skin.

    Grass Green - Primary color for general use. Used for most vegetation and pure greens.


More on this later!

@01:12Brands of Color Pencils:
Crayola - Good for kids (not for artists)

Rose Art - AVOID AVOID! The leads are too waxy and don't blend well.

Prang - Good alternative, though not the best.

Prismacolor - The best ones on the market currently! They come with wax in the lead

Bristol and Strathmore Illustration Board (the 500 series with medium texture) are both pretty good. It's best to experiment and find out what works for you.:)

@06:01Hopefully you can save up and buy a kit soon! If you know how to use ebay, there are some really cheap sets on there or if you get the coupons for stores like Michaels and Hobby Lobby that make the sets nearly half off!

Good luck! Remember to practice, practice, practice!

@01:10They do. I learned this directly from a prismacolor official representative:) All color pencils have clay powder in them as part of the binding process. Prismacolors just have a bit more than the other brands.

I started with coloured pencil, and it didn't take me long to really get into prisma...I started using them like..8 years ago. Mind you, I haven't been using the tools for coloured pencils for that long. I don't experiment with them enough...I'm stuck in my safe zone, and have been for a while. The unfortunate thing for me, is I'm in China at the moment, and I have no real way of getting new coloured pencils, or the blenders and erasers and such...I have to travel quite a distance to get them...so it kinda sucks for me...Right now, I'm using old school technique for blending...rubbing the colours with my fingers. My high school art teacher hated that...lol

that is so cool Angela! Thank you for the tut. I go back and forth about how serious I want to get with colored pencils and if I should invest into a good set or stick with the collection of random that have now.
I loved to hear your voice, it has made you more real now :)

I was hoping that it might help to give my name a friendly face. I'm glad to see you enjoyed this:) If anything, you should get a small 12 pencil starter set just to try them out (or grab some singles that look interesting to you) and see how you like them. Prismacolors really do operate so differently than other color pencils that it's quite the surprise once you use them and see how much better they work.

You will have to tell me how they work for you if you do get to try them:)
