Coloring with Prisma Colors colored pencils tips and tricks?
So this one is for the art freaks out there!
In my art class, I am currently making a colored pencil piece with prisma colors. The piece is a prehistoric landscape in which all of the dinosaurs are made of musical instruments. Does anyone have suggestions on the style I should use, or any tips for using prisma colors?
Always start light, and don't be afraid to layer colors. Also, white pencils will help everything blend and look nice.
You can use them lightly or hard, like regular pencils. I always press down when I draw tho. Lol
Prismacolor pencils are so great bc they blend phenomenally to make shading & even different colors ...bc the lead inside is very soft, kinda like oil pastels.
Usually I blend/shade by lightly color using the lighter color, then the darker color on overtop a lil where I want it. Then firmly press the lighter color over again ...that should blend the darker color shading in.
...that's just how I do it, bc I firmly press my pencils on paper. your schools awesome, bc mine couldn't afford prismacolors!! I didnt use them till i went to college & bought em myself. Lol
Thanks for both of your tips! And DarkAsh, I know, right?? I love my school, especially the extracurricular classes. Everyone at my school complains that it's poopy though, I guess they just aren't very grateful..
