Beautiful job.
Mind if I ask what technique you use with the acrylics to get that almost colored pencil look?

Mark Meyers said...

Tom- My intention isn't really to make it look like colored pencil. But the effect comes from doing the final details with smaller brushes with varying layers of dry brushing and glazes. Hope that helps.
