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! 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.

Note: Drawing paper not included. See list of supplies needed in the images.

I was not thrilled with this tutorial and ended up going it alone. The print-out was almost impossible to follow even though I made several attempts. I am working through it on my own and simply using the photo as the example for color purposes. I have purchased several tutorials in the past and really enjoyed working on them, but not this one. Sorry.

I was working on a giraffe piece myself from memory and photos from Como Park, MN, where I grew up. I ordered this piece as a cross reference for color. I think it worked out very well. I’ll send it on Nov. 8th!
