Trial and Error by LMRourke Trial and Error by LMRourke
Sam (Jared Padalecki) from Season 8 Ep. 14 "Trial and Error"

Second color pencil attempt with a little watercolor pencil mixed in. Not really satisfied with the results but I'm not ready to give up completely! Lots of room for improvement with lots of practice. :)

I love your mood here, and your palette. Great Sam. He's easy to do well enough, harder to do *well*.

Oh no, you mustn't give up with coloured pencils!!  This is fantastic, and for a second attempt, you should feel good about yourself for producing such a quality piece of work.  Why are you not totally satisfied with the results?  I think the textures within the piece give it an almost religious feel to it, if that makes sense?

:tighthug: I consider that quite a compliment! :tighthug:  I guess I was not that happy with it because I didn't know what medium I wanted to do it in and ended up going with mostly color pencil which I feel a little more in control of than watercolor. *lol* It seemed a little too mishmoshed to me and maybe too textured.  I think I wanted it to be more defined or refined if that makes sense. I played with the scanned piece a little and saturated and darkened the hues which I think helped.  Frankly, I was surprised by the wonderful reaction it's gotten.  I definitely won't give up my color pencils! :D

Thank you so much! :hug:  Um..to answer your question, I have to say first off that I'm very new to using watercolor pencils.  I've owned a nice set of them for years and only just attempted to use them for this piece. I wasn't sure if I wanted to do the whole thing in watercolor (another medium I haven't used in literally decades) or color pencil, I just new I wanted to work in color for a change.  I used the watercolor pencils mostly for the background and Sam's hair.  They go on like regular color pencils but then I took a damp paper towel and blended them. The regular color pencils work well over the watercolored background.  Hope that answered your question! :D
