About In-Depth Tutorials:

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! In-Depth tutorials truly show you exactly (and we really do mean exactly) how the artist works, making learning new drawing techniques easy and stress-free.

Note: Drawing paper and pencils not included. See images for complete supply list.

Not that easy to follow

I have followed other tutorials but this one was not easy and did not produce the same results with the same pencils
