Pure Eye Candy! The goal of this dazzling at-home tutorial is not to create a photo-realistic image - but instead enjoy the magic that colored pencils can bring to the look of a highly-chromed Harley Road King. Have fun and bring the spirit of play to your project.

The clear instruction by artist Rhonda Dicksion will guide you through 30 detailed steps for mastering reflective chrome in Rhonda's lively style. Includes line drawing, full color images, Prismacolor color chart and detailed method overview.

What you'll learn:

Reflection: A chrome subject on a bright sunny day might seem intimidating to achieve with colored pencil - but Rhonda walks you through each step by step process for getting the mirrored reflection to just blast off the paper.

Video Extras: Take a closer look at key elements of the project along the way with links to video instruction.

Section by Section: How you render the background - sky, bluff and asphalt - will determine how much pop your finished piece has. This background-first approach allows you to get comfortable with the subject before diving into chrome.

About In-Depth Tutorials:

Created by master colored pencil artists, each In-Depth tutorial features 30+ steps and focuses on teaching you why and not just how the artist applies their technique. No book or video comes close to the amount of instruction in an In-Depth tutorial. Art instruction books typically contain 4-6 steps per demo. That just scratches the surface! With large images and 30 or more steps, In-Depth tutorials truly show you exactly how the artist works, making it easy to truly learn new colored pencil techniques and achieve success.

Note: Drawing paper not included. See list of supplies needed in the images.

Just brilliant!!

I rank this one right up there with "Silver Reflections." It was a project that I put away, took back out, worked, put away, repeat over a 6 month period. It was not "easy," but as with Ann's other kits, the results I achieved through patience and following the directions were amazing. I learned so much and produced a piece that just looks great! The author did a first rate job of composing this tutorial. I honestly don't grasp how she or anyone is able to concurrently produce a magnificent piece of reflective art, and at the same time, capture how she is doing it. I never know until after I've done something whether it "will work" or not. I'll add that I particular enjoyed that this wound up being the largest pencil piece I've done, and I appreciated that the author went to the trouble to spread the line drawing across multiple pages. This allowed me to simply print, tape together and then transfer. LOVED it!!

I love it. The directions are very clear. Unfortunately, I have had to put it aside for the time being, due to a unexpected commission of a double dog portrait for a surprise gift to the recipient. I look so forward to getting back to Rhonda’s tutorial and getting to the chrome in the near future.

I really enjoyed this Dazzling Chrome tutorial by Rhonda Dicksion. This is actually the first piece I've done that I felt was good enough to frame. The steps in this tutorial were clearly written and easy to follow. They included reasons for doing things a certain way, and the approach made even my mistakes seem ok. Discussion of the outlining gave me the freedom to feel that my finished project didn't have to be perfect, because it was a learning experience. This attitude helped me to succeed with the project. Some videos included with the tutorial explained transferring the line drawing, stroke techniques, and other topics. This is a very good tutorial, definitely worth buying.

Video Link no good

Using the video link in the file does not work without a password.

Hi Steve, I've sent you an email with the password for the video. We also wanted to let you know that the password is printed in the tutorial directly under the link to the videos. Hope this helps!
