I just joined here, and I thought I would get started by posting my colored pencil drawing of the Vegas sign. I am very pleased with how it turned out, hope you all like it too. It is really great to see everyone's work.

Beautiful work :) The shadows, highlights, and detail are wonderful
THanks so much! I find that a lot of things they do to make interesting photo's make great art!

Wow, this colored pencil drawing is wonderful, Deb!  I like the perspective as well, with the huge sky behind the sign.


Do you use any solvents to blend your colors? The shading is spectacular.  What size is this piece?

THanks, I use prismacolor pencils and use the cream color to blend most of the colors together. Most of the clolors and especially the edges are a blend of some kind. The clouds were about 5 colors blended with white and the edges blended into the blue.
for a minute there I thought it was a photograph but when I looked at it closer  I saw it was a drawing  you caught its spirit beautifully.  you are very gifted.  thank you so much for sharing your artwork
