Hello and Happy Friday! I have got THE CUTEST little guy for you today.
Here is what I’ve been working on:
So, in case you can’t tell- its a Panda Bear eating some bamboo. *SQUEEEEEEE*
I couldn’t decide if I wanted to do this piece in pastels or colored pencils, especially after JUST finishing a colored pencil piece. I have tendonitis in my thumb that was caused by using colored pencils, and it will flare up painfully if I use them too much or on very large pieces.
I went in with PanPastels in the background but quickly decided that I would do the bear in colored pencils.
I’m so glad that I made this decision, because I was able to layer and get so much depth in the fur by going with colored pencils verses pastels.
Come back next Friday for the finished panda! Don’t want to wait? You can follow my Instagram to see all my artwork in real time.
