Mark Menendez: Frostie Friends Colored Pencil Tutorial

How many times have you drawn a snowman?

Well, you’ll find this jolly fellow and his little friend to be delightfully different than the other snowmen you’ve created! You’ll learn Mark’s techniques for creating the textures of glistening snow, the highlighted fuzzy feel of a patterned scarf, and the eye-catching aurora borealis background.

Mark will show you his unique approach of using toned paper, mixed media (acrylic) and a minimum of layering. Learning these techniques will prove to be very helpful for any of your future creations. Plus…well, we think Frostie and friend are just too endearing not to draw!

All with only 19 colored pencils! View the supply list for this project >>

Morning Hibiscus Colored Pencil Tutorial

I have not been able to use this tutorial from Mark Menendez. I am sure it will be great to do since I did one of his other ones and it came out good.
