Prismacolor pencil on Strathmore, scan.

(Story behind this. I was asked to create a special Mr. Criss drawing to accompany my interview on the French Darren Criss Forum.)

this is fantastic! i use faber castell polychromo pencils for my colour drawings... are prismacolor softer? i sometimes find with polychromo pencils, they can cause harsh lines x
Reply
:iconlive4artinla:
Live4ArtInLA Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2012
I always use Prismacolor Premier pencils specifically because they are a fantastic soft core pencil, and make blending SO much easier. I have not used the pencils you mentioned, but if you google/read up on comparisons to the two products, from what you are saying I would guess that you are using too hard a pencil. But keep those pencils around for things like drawing eyes, hair strands and teeth - when you need hard edges. Hope this helped - and happy drawing! :)
