A Bit on Colored Pencils

All of the tutorials on this page involve the use of colored pencils. This medium is one of my favorites because of it's ability to create detailed drawings. Colored pencils are easy to use "onsite" and are clean enough to use anywhere. 

Colored pencils are a drawing medium that usually consists of waxy (or oil-based) shafts of pigment held together in a wooden shaft.  Colored pencils vary greatly in price and quality.  Softer varieties are generally more desirable for drawing and are usually more expensive as well. 

Colored pencils can be used on a variety of different surfaces, but toned drawing papers are generally the choice of most artists.

Looking to pick up some colored pencils, but don't know which brand to buy?  Check out my comparison chart and see which brands I recommend here.
