Long time no see, Imageready!

Lately I have been wanting to get back into the Imageready ballgame. I had enjoyed myself so much all these years ago that I decided to dust off my old version of Photoshop CS2 and Imageready. The newer versions of Photoshop come without imageready and I’m not ready to learn a trick I already know in another manner.

This is what I came up with:
A Disturbed icon and a NCIS Signature

[DRAWING TIPS AND TRICKS] Blending with colored pencil

Since I’m a very creative person (or so I’d like to think anyways) I’m always trying new stuff. Today I want to share a videotutorial with you about blending with coloured pencils. Since last saturday I’m the proud owner of a magnificent full set of Derwent Coloursoft pencils and I’m having a blast watching youtube tutorials and trying things out. It seems only fair that I share the video’s that work best for me with you as well.

Featuring today is a video made by Pencilstash, about 6 different blending techniques, She teaches in a very calm manner and has a nice voice to listen to.
Note: You can blend with any kind of colored pencil, even the cheap ones! It just takes time, patience ad a LOT of practise.
Enjoy!
