#1 Fairy on Toned Paper


This is the first of 50 Fab Fun Fairies that was a challenge in the Awesome Art School online classes. It is also my first piece in my new Strathmore Toned Tan paper sketchbook.

Following this tutorial by Karen Campbell, the owner of Awesome Art School, I used my Pentel Mechanical pencil to draw the fairy. I went over my pencil lines with a Prismacolor Premier colored pencil. I used the same pencil for shading and followed that with a Sharpie Fine Point marker. A Posca Pen was used to apply the highlights.

I loved working in my new book and drawing this fairy! I will be doing more of these!
