That's the sort of knowledge that can take you years to learn on your own, through trial and error; this In-Depth Tutorial can shave that learning time down to a few hours.

What you'll learn:

• How to start a drawing on black paper
 How to easily create realistic eyes with colored pencil
 How to draw feathers without drawing feather
 How to get the brightest whites possible on black paper

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.

Woodpecker

Out of the 3 tutorials I purchased, the Woodpecker was the best, however, I found the format of long paragraphs with instruction, very frustrating - It would be much better if each step was numbered and not in paragraph form - I spent a lot of time hunting for where I was last. I guess I could have printed the instructions and somehow noted each step so I could find my place quickly, but never did. All 3 were good practice and I believe that I learned from my mistakes. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to give feedback. I completed a tutorial from another artist prior to yours and was never contacted for feedback.

Great! Great detail. (...just not there yet)

Read through 3 times, and also referred back to it. But I am not at that level as far as patience (and skill-a beginner. As my art grows, so grows my patience -- and vice-versa.

In Depth Woodpecker

This tutorial was excellent and helped me have a successful outcome on black paper. It was fascinating to go through the process of using so many layers of colors to achieve the final result. One of the most detailed and complete tutorials I have completed. Id recommend it to everyone seeking to advance their colored pencil skills.
