Stepped up to an old project that has been sitting around. Back when I engraved my dragon, I engraved a wolf coloring page, too. It has been sitting around waiting until now.

Preparation:

858064


9 focal lengths due to the blasted progressive bifocals.

Page ready, and the color pencil set I was going to use.

My process:

I had my first color chosen before I opened the box. I wanted a nice bright blue for eyes and gems.

From there, I picked colors that suited to my mind, until that color was up.

At this point, the box variety failed. Some of the colors were only one or two shades different than what was already used.

So I marked my photo record, and dug out my old pencils to finish it.

Finished picture under natural light. This was color pencils on proofgrade draftboard. It is currently getting some acrylic sealer to protect the pencil color, after which I will probably put one or two coats of clear spray paint for the gloss. Sadly, the sealer darkens the MDF a little, too.
