This fellow has quite a story and the ste-by-step progress was featured in a four-page spread in colored pencil magazine last May or June I believe.

What a GREAT piece!  Did you use graphite and Prismacolour pencils?  This is a collection, I'd say.

Thank you everyone for your kind comments and I apologize for getting to this so late but we have been away for 4 months so I have not been keeping up with all my correspondence.  As to your question Lyn, I use mostly Faber Castell Polycrhromos pencils and a few Prismas.  This particular piece was featured with a four-page article of the process and story in the May (last year) issue of Colored Pencil magazine (not Anne Kuhlberg's, but the other one of the same name??)
