Hair and Skin Prismacolor Tutorial

I've been promising Brenda for awhile that I would make a tutorial on how I color with my Prismacolor pencils. I will start with hair and skin just because I think those are the areas most of us struggle with.  My daughter is just starting to get serious about coloring with her new set of Prismas and this is for her too!!
Part One: Skin





Part Two: Hair

This is fabulous & thank you for doing these videos. I started out with prismas & rarely bring them out anymore since I got Copics but I am going to grab them again. You have provided so many valuable tips & hints on how to use them that it's going to be a whole lot easier for me next time.

I haven't even viewed the videos (but will as soon as I finsh writing this) BUT I've decided that you just need to come to Texas and teach me how to color!!! Or if can't do that, start an on-line class............your coloring is just THE BEST!

I am so happy I took the time to wtach these great videos. Thank you so much for taking the time to make them! I colored with Prisms a couple weeks ago after we emailed each other, but I was pressing too hard trying to blend and couldn't figure it out. Now I know how to blend- YAY! I can't wait to get to the art store to get my supplies and try this. :)
