Three Great Leaders by WarriorapprenticeKat

It's hard to add anything to what Eternal-Black-Wings already said but one thing that I noticed immediately is the quality of the strip...

Happy Halloween 2014 by Sarosna
Happy Halloween 2014
Fealt like drawing a Halloween picture to test out what my pastel + colored pencil combo can do :) The cloudy sky came out rather meh but otherwise I'm very happy with the results.

My first pastel + colored pencil work. Things got a bit messy towards the end but overall I'm extremely happy how the pastel made everything so much faster and easier. I just think I went a bit overboard with colored pencil on this one. The shadows on the flower petals aren't as crude as in the scan. Scanner loves to eat away layers of color. I also think that I need to figure out a better way for making white highlights. White acrylic looks kinda off.

A birthday card for my fiance's niece. Don't have my soft pastels yet so I had to do the background with my Art Grip aquarelle pencils and Polychromos pencils dust. I also forgot to scan the piece in before laminating it so the picture seen here has an odd glaze on top of it. Done on Hahnemühle Nostalgie, size is 10x15cm.

I'm a 29 year old woman from Finland. I've been drawing since I was a kid but I never pursued drawing as a real passion which is a shame. I even quit the hobby nearly entirely during high school. I spent 10 years not actively drawing but after both of my grandparents passed away, I started to feel like I'm wasting my life just going to work and then sitting at the computer playing games for the rest of the day. So I picked up pencil and paper again.

Figuring out my desired medium has been a long road of trial and error. I dislike actual digital painting quite a bit and fell completely in love with colored pencils but in time it became painfully obvious how much time and patience color pencils require. So I spent a lot of money and time in figuring out what to use in tandem with colored pencils. I'm about to try soft pastels and see how that goes. I loved soft pastels in high school :)
Sorry I haven't uploaded anything in a while. I've been drawing a lot and practicing digital coloring but my finished paintings are Christmas presents for family members so I won't be uploading them for obvious reasons. I still have 2 more paintings to go after which I might start doing personal stuff again.
