Warming up the ol' sketch hand.
It's been a long time since I've used pencil crayons, but I went and bought a pack at Wallacks the other day to try and get back into them. This is a quick sketch of a dress I saw on Ebay (I'm DANGEROUSLY close to buying a renaissance peasent dress and a civil war era gown from there... getting a credit card has unleashed my inner material demons.) I like the feel of pencil crayons, but it's always irked me that colouring over erased pencil marks leaves a pale kind of back trace line that I can't get rid of unless I lightly colour through the groove with a darker shade. It's all a learning process.
