Animal Sketches + Blending Techniques

I finally started writing today. I have a great starting point. I’ve been painting animals and experimenting with colored pencils.

Yes I’m using Crayola and they’re great for practice. I have found these inktense soft pencils. They’re on my Christmas list. My creative exploration class is about experimentation and finding your style. This class is helping me open up and explore until I find my way… the way Wise Animals needs be illustrated.

I came across blending techniques with pencils. I’ve been sketching animals ever since.

Blending makes pencil drawings look smoth and enhances color. Here’s the video that inspired me. I’ve been doing a lot of creating and it feels good. What are you working on? You can tag me on instagram @hellomireya
