Can you tell me please if you work with both prismacolor premier and verithin or just premier?

I just use the standard Prismas. I tried the verithins and found that because of the hardness of the lead, they did not blend as easy. I am able to get just as sharp a point on the regular Prismas and can blend them better. Hope that helps...

Thank you so much! Didn't know that with Prismacolor premier pencils it's possible to reach such detailing!

You know, I am planning on that - when I have enough fantasy work to create a book dedicated to it. Maybe in a year or so, I need to stop entering shows so I can actually get some work done! Keep checking back, I'll definitely have that in my journal! And thanks! And yes, it is the vellum surface that I am using now :)

I looove this! :) I like the idea for the colors of her face. This creates very calm atmosphere and makes me think about the important things in life or...just stop and think during our dynamic everyday life. :) Really great work. :)
I am sure that it is very nice to experience the features of a new kind of paper. I think it;s really nice that the different kinds of paper gives you a chance to use new textures that can help you to make your works look different and each one of them would have a different mood and different message. That's how I see the things. I would be very happy if you tell me what your opinion about that is. :)
Thank you! :) You are amazing! Keep drawing! :)

Well thank you very much! The papers I use are all very similar - but the newest variety is just slightly easier for me to work with, now that I have adjusted to it, and the effects are much nicer. I do try to create a different mood with each piece. The personality of the girl and the fantasy she wants to become have a lot to do with the resulting mood and style. B-)
