Progress shot of a colored pencil portrait that I recently did 🌻//
It was my first try using colored pencils in a long time, a few tips I could give if you’re just staring out with colored pencils is to be patient and gradually darken stuff! That way you won’t really go too dark too son and will keep your values more accurate.
Also, when coloring skin I used a few different tones of other hues, not just “regular” flesh stones but I included green, reds and a bit of yellow as well! I did that to give it a warmer look to the portrait and I think it worked just fine.
