Dude, go on youtube and have a look. There is a lot more to it than just filling in spaces with colour :D

Those two artists dont draw the designs, they add the colour and bring them to life!

I've recently been getting into colouring. It's great when you're battered - put some tunes on, get the pens/pencils out and crack on.

Just finished this the other day...

Cool, I've got a few of Kerby Rosanes books, I love his work.

Cant wait for his new book mythomorphia to be released.

I've got the Noris pencils too, how do you find them?

I like them, but I have nothing to compare them to seeing as they are the only ones I've used.

Bit shit compared to BJ's but I did spend a few hours with my tongue doing that stupid half poking out thing. You know what I'm on about.

Getting more inspired here. :)

But I don't want to lash out a ton of money on "nice pencils" and risk using them once, I know what I am like. I watched a video on Youtube with Peta Hewitt and she says something like her techniques work with Faber-Castell Polychromos and also cheaper things like Faber Castell Classics and you can get 36 of those for £13 which isn't too bad. Are the Polychromos like water colour pencils, ie. you can spray a bit of water on it and move the colour around?

@@BigJohnny love the pic. :) So you used pencils and pens on that? BTW, if you download Irfanview and open your photo in it and press "R" it will turn the pic 90 degrees to the right, you can then save it and it will be the right way around.

No Polychromos arent watercolour pencils but Faber-Castell do do a range

Derwent inktense are some really good wc pencils.

if you go down this route, have a look at water brushes(Derwent make a set but cheaper ones are available), you add the pencil on dry and then go over it with a water brush which is brush pen you fill up under a tap to create the wc effect. Apparently a lot easier than using wet pencils.

Water colour pencils may not work too well depending on the paper used in the book though. Sometimes when they get saturated they crinkle.

if this is the case and you still wanna use a certain design, photocopy it onto better paper :yep:

e2a Marco Raffine & Marco Renoir make good quality normal pencils at a good price lyra pencils are pretty good too so ive heard
