Macaw by BeeZee-Art Macaw by BeeZee-Art
This was done for class last year. I just got it back. It is prismacolor pencils on illustration board. It took me around 3 weeks to finish, but I worked on it a lot. This is the first and only piece I've ever done with prisma pencils, but I really loved them and I'd like to work in them again.

I worked from a reference image. I don't know the original source since we did not get to pick our images, just the subject matter.

There are two detail shots in my gallery, but they are craptastic shots :( I'm so bad at photographing traditional art.

Edit; Wow, I did not expect a DD on this :) Thanks everyone! And thank you for all the lovely comments. I don't have much time to respond to them, but I really appreciate them.

What brand of colored pencils do you use.

These were mostly prismacolors, but I used some cheap, hard crayola pencils overtop of some of the areas to smooth out the color, and two random off-brand burnishing and blending pencils as well. But mostly prismacolor.
