Do you know how LONG I've been looking for just a simple tutorial that didn't get overly bogged down with too many details, or a million different colors for skin tones?! Holy crap! This is what I've been searing for FOREVER!
Thank you so much for posting!

I love this tutorial, I use to color with color pencils all the time when I was younger, I stopped since I found it hard to fix mistakes. Which brings me to my question, the eraser what are you using it for? to erase mistakes? some of the color? Also what kind of color pencils do you use, brand wise.

I'm looking to get back into Traditional since my computer is broken and Im only rarely able to get on my cousin's. Thanks in advance!

Hi EvangiDaga,
You can see all my tools under the tutorial.
I use eraser to blur, the colors are smoother. To erase mistakes I use not only eraser but also white ink.
If you need help, feel free to ask me :) 
Sorry for the late reply ^^

I find it interesting you color with the lightest color first and the midtone last. I myself usually go from midtone, to shadows, to highlights. I'll have to try this way sometime!

Colleen colour pencil? my country didn't sell this brand of colour pencil....

:iconlittlemn:
LittleMn Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Don't worry, Yue-chan. I think Germany's is always good. I introduced Colleen because it's not only quite cheaper than others but also good.
I'm very glad that it can help you :meow:
