    What you'll learn
    Embossing: How to use it to bring details like cat fur and and whiskers to life. Amy teaches you this brilliant method for adding precise detail.

    Faber-Castell Polychromos: Amy chooses 16 colors from the Polychromos line for this tutorial, and you'll find that the oil-based pencils work perfectly for blending many layers to achieve rich, dynamic colors.

    Fabric: Bobbins rests in a sea of floral fabric, making this the perfect image to learn two new skills in one! Get fabric folds and shading just right while learning how to create a soft, receding background that lets the kitty just pop off the page.

Review of Bobbins the Cat tutorial

The directions in much of the tutorial were unclear and the drawings did not match the directions making this tutorial very frustrating. When I gave up on the directions and just looked at the picture, I was able to finish the project.

Fun and not too difficult

I love the way the tutorial was mapped out, step by step. Other In-Depth tutorials have not been the same, unfortunately.

Very useful

I really enjoyed following this tutorial. Every stage was clearly explained and I have learned some good techniques for coloured pencil work. I was pleased with my end result too!
