I've tried using colour pencils on different colour papaers including black but found it difficult to get vivid colours. I drew the Morgana picture in my gallery originally on black paper but wasn't happy with the result. I need to give it a go again. Prismacolor pencils might work better as they are more waxy than the polychromos I use. I've got some brown canson paper which I'm getting better results with. I haven't got it right yet. Pastel pencils work much better with darker papers. The Jimmy Cagney drawing in my gallery is on black pastel paper. Best of luck look forwards to seeing your picture.

Awesome..thats what i wanted to hear. I had a feeling the black would soak the color up..i wont expect much then and just go with white and color the background in black. Thanks!! :)

Nicely done. I like your use color & texture that defines the shading and highlights of her skin and the leather.

Great eyes. They drew me into the picture straight away and it was hard to move around the rest of the drawing without returning to the eyes.

I love the details to the hands really amazing with those, especially the folds in her shirt. Those eyes are gorgeous. Another wonderfully done piece.

Hi there, thanks. I changed the colour to make it warmer, but seem to have lost some of the colour in the scan.

I know what you mean, scanning and taking photos just doesn't do our art justice sometimes.
