First drawing with my new prismas,  actually not to disappointed with this one.   I thought for sure I would fail at this but it actually tuned out pretty well.   There's a few mistakes but I'm defiantly keeping it.

Wow, that looks great, Zach.  Ready to bite into.

Nicely blended.  Good shine.

Good job.

 :clap: :clap: Excellent results for a first go with CP's!! O0  They can be tricky little beasts at times but it looks like you got them under control, right from the beginning. Do you have a Burnisher?  Great pencil to have !
I live to draw and paint, it a good thing that I don't have to draw and paint to live!

 :thankyou: Bev!  No I don't have a burnisher yet,  for now I just use a white pencil.   I want to buy one though cause I've been watching YouTube videos and the burnished pencil seems to work alot better than the white pencil.

 :thankyou:  Patricia!  I've been wanting to do these for a while,  glad I'm finally starting with it.
 
:thankyou: Barry!  I think I'm gonna give this one another go,  now that I've got a better idea of how the pencils work I wanna do it again and see how much more realistic I can get. 

 :thankyou: Jillh!  Looking forward to doing more
