I copied this from a children’s book about frogs. I have no idea if what kind of frog that is but I thought he’s nice to draw today. 🙂

Have a great day!

My Pencils

I was so absorbed in completing some paper works that I was actually tempted to just post an old art today, some of my art when I was in sixth grade. Although that may be an interesting post, I don’t wanna make that as an excuse not to draw anything at all today. But if you will convince me to post them, I might share them with you. 😉

From my previous post, I thought of sharing a picture of my Faber Castell colored pencils. I don’t get to test other brands of colored pencils since this is only the most available one that comes with many colors. Most colored pencil brands that others may recommend isn’t available around here. I am willing to take gifts and donations. Haha! (FAIL) 😛

So, this reveals what colors I use the most. The long unused ones are just a recent addition to my pencils that’s why they are barely used. I got them from my new colored pencil box with more colors. Other new pencils are kept inside the cabinet for replacement purposes. So there, I know I told that I am not a fan of pink, but there it is…small and got used a lot. Why? Because I used it a lot in face portraits before along with those two browns taped together. Pinks are used a lot on skin and children’s girly dresses. But then I guess I like pink too, I just don’t like to wear it like there’s no other color better than it on clothes, only as accents. I think that green is already my second pencil. That is what I use a lot. I like drawing things from the nature.

You may wonder why I tape some pencils together. Well…that is because I don’t use pencil extenders. I don’t see them in the store and I don’t have the motivation to search for one. Taping them together is already fine with me…lol!

And you can see…I collect the pencil shards. I don’t know, but I like seeing them. I may use it for decorative purposes, I don’t know. You can suggest me something I can do with them.

So, those are my pencils on parade…I hope you like them. Have a great day! 😀
