About In-Depth Tutorials:
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.

Note: Drawing paper and pencils not included. See images for complete supply list. Polychromos pencil name changes can be found here.
