I bow down to your traditional skills. The coloring and shading is amazing. This looks like a very helpful tutorial. It makes me think twice about how to color Basil's face markings and eyes especially.
Very nice tutorial! Colored pencils used to be my tools of the trade before I switched to graphic art coloring. One thing I learned about the pencils is how much pressure to put on them for light or dark parts. Another is the direction of which way to color to keep the lines going the same way. If you flip around the paper too much, the lines will go both vertical and horizontal.
I've been wondering how you made such amazing artwork with colored pencils! I think you explained everything very well, and it's very helpful! I have troubles with colored pencils myself, so this is is very helpful and I've learned a lot! Thanks so much for making this!
