Why an In-Depth tutorial?
A tutorial can be so useful in so many ways. A tutorial teaches you the author's methods. And also obviously, when you draw along with a tutorial, you learn by doing, which is much more powerful than learning by watching alone.

But even more importantly, a step by step teaches you how to break down complicated subjects into small, achievable steps, learning how to look at a reference photo with an artist’s eye, analyzing where and how to start, and which details to leave in and which to leave out. It's an important skill to learn and important for any colored pencil artist's success.
