TUTORIAL – Mythical Beast in Coloured Pencil and Powder Blender

Today I’ll be showing you how I drew my favourite animal, the okapi, looking up at the aurora borealis, in this surreal drawing using Caran D’ache Pablo and Faber Castell Polychromos coloured pencils, with Colored Pencil Powder Blender to blend. I used Fisher 400 sanded paper for the first time with this artwork. The sponge blenders that I use are by a brand called Sofft. They’re brilliant for blending with powder blender and they also work really well with soft pastels!
