Blue Fairy Mixed Media

 I've been working steadily at Awesome Art School, improving my skills and totally enjoying learning new things.

This tutorial is by Karen Campbell. I drew the fairy with my Pentel Mechanical pencil and went over my lines with a Faber-Castell watercolor pencil. I followed that with a wet brush and let that dry. I used the same watercolor pencil and made improvements to my lines, adding shading. I used the wet brush where I wanted to blend.

When the piece was dry, I used a Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pen for details and a Gelly Roll pen for a bit of highlites. I used a different color watercolor pencil for the detail on her forehead.
