Emphasis on the why of the particular technique, rather than just the "what", which is by far the best kind of instruction. You'll find no clearer or more thorough colored pencil instruction online.
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 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.
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!
