metallics

Impulse buy of the week: metallic colour pencils. At $2.50 for a packet of 12, I just couldn’t pass it up. Thanks Big W. The colours are a bit samey, but they’re still pretty to look at.

I’ve previously posted a digital edit of this illustration, but here it is with a bit of a touch up from the metallic pencils. The metallic-ness doesn’t really show up in this scan though. So just pretend. I also decided to add some more detail and shading. I don’t usually go back to work on ‘finished’ sketches. In most cases, I try and do everything in one sitting because any longer and I lose attention/interest. I’m glad I went back to this one though.
