    I remember feeling so frustrated and insecure when I first started drawing with colored pencil because there was so much I didn't know. I so wish there had been a basic colored pencil handbook that caught me up to speed quickly.

    That's what the Jumpstart Jetpack Handbook is! It covers all the basics you need to know about pencils, drawing papers, impressed line, blending, burnishing and so much more.  Add it to your order to get a jump on colored pencil in a hurry!

Great tutorial!

I’ve completed my initial piece and learned a great deal. I will work through this a number of times refining. Some of the results didn’t become clear to me until I had worked all the way through, then could see where to improve. Thanks for the learning opportunity.

Good - I had not realized it was a level 3.when I purchased it. I found the wings quite challenging and got a bit lost, though I don't think it was the instructions, as they were laid out clearly.

I recommend that tutorial. I never did a dog portrait, always cats and wildlife. I decided to try. And I'm very happy with the result. Thank you !!!!
