Drawing with Pastel Pencils for the First Time

Drawing with pastel pencils for the first time was nerve wracking…for about the first 10 minutes. I am now a huge fan! But my success with them wasn’t without a lot of studying (watching YouTube videos of my favorite artists using pastels). I wanted to take the plunge, but was hesitant when I’d heard of all the frustrations other artists had gone through. Thus, began the watching of YouTube videos.

First attempt. I should have added much more layers before adding fur detail. (Photo/Art Credit: Myra Naito)
