It's a long process of coloring lightly and eventually pressing harder. Unlike most mediums that allow mistakes to be fixed. If I mess up in on an area by coloring too hard too early, I can't really go back. It's just a slow process of blending.

I see.. When I use color pencils, it always seems that I can't get the colors right, and the results are more likely to be messy and the colors doesn't blend very well. Thanks a lot for sharing your technique! :D

No problem!

I actually use more than one color for most areas. I probably used more than 10 different kinds of greys for the shading on the Cardinal. It just takes a lot of layering, practice, and patience. I didn't know how to use them well for a long time [link]

I once had a couple of pet Cardinals. They loved to eat dragonflys. :giggle:

Well, I caught them among other birds. :paranoid:
The cardinals were the last I had.
Now I have cats, so owning a bird is out of the question. =P

It must be hard catching wild birds!
Seems like a really cool pet to have around. I don't think I've ever seen a Cardinal in person though. They don't live near me. They are so damn cute!

Cats are fun to have too. Too bad I can't own one.
They are so soft and meowtastic!!
