Example text

With black pencil draw eyelashes. Now with Dark brown and Tuscan Red Prismacolor colored pencils draw the darkest parts of the skin. Draw the one over another as you can see in the next image. With Light Peach draw the rest of the face and the parts between brown and light peach blend with Peach colored pencil. When draw the highlights of the face, such as the top of the nose, forehead, cheeks, press lightly with Light Peach and go over these areas with white colored pencil. This way these areas will be lighter than the rest of the face.

With Chocolate colored pencil continue to draw a skin next to the hair. On the left side of his face draw with white colored pencil over the drawn brown areas. This way it will get a round shape because the light falls on the sides of his face. Draw his forehead and also draw with white colored pencils over the brown on the highlighted parts. Continue with the same pencils, Chocolate, over that little bit Tuscan Red and on the highlighted areas go over with white colored pencil. The right side of his face also draw with Chocolate Prismacolor, go over that with Tuscan Red and finally white the edge of the face with white pencil.

As you can see in the image below, for me is also difficult to achieve a smooth texture of the skin, only if you look at it from far away you won't notice the lines. That's why we have to draw with these pencils over and over many times. If you use a wax colorless blender, the skin will become darker, that's why I wouldn't recommend it, but you can give it a try. Actually this wax colorless blender would be perfect and wonderful for blending the skin, but it also make a drawn areas clumped. I rather use white, Light Peach and Pink Rose for blending the skin.
