Here is a list of the Prismacolor Pencils I used on this Monkey Mike:
Sienna Brown - PC945
Light Peach - PC927
Process Red - PC 994
Crimson Red - PC 924
These 4 colors are very common colors for me to use. Meaning.... when Iuse a brown ..Sienna brown is the one I use the most. Light Peach and reg Peach are the ones I use most often for faces. Crimson Red is the one I use most often for cheeks. Process red or any pink will do for ears ...bellies...on this image Process Red looked the best to me.
I love Prismacolor pencils and add to them whenever possible. Everyone has their own taste in colors ....as well certain images and occasions call for certain colors. Prismacolors come in a Fantastic amount of colors and when blended with OMS...they brighten up like a marker.
There are many different types of OMS (oderless mineral spirits)..Some people use Gamsol. Gamsol is one OMS that is not readily available around here so I use Mona Lisa OMS. I buy it at Micheal's for around $9.00. To keep the OMS easily available for use I cut a cosmetic sponge to fit in a little paint pot container .....I then pour a little of the OMS inside. The container has a lid so I can use OMS this way for several days before it dries out. I use paper art stumps to blend....I try to use a different one for each color family .....and to clean some color off for the next one... I just wipe it across some copy paper.
There are many Wonderful and more thorough tutorials out there for Prismacolor Pencils and OMS.
I must tell you all that this is my first Tutorial......and I have no idea what I am doing! Whether I am saying too much or too little....I don't want to bore you all. I also hope I don't make this all seem complicated....because none of it is. It is all very easy to do....If you have any questions please feel free to ask!
The following Prismacolor and H20 Tutorial..#2 will be including how to use the H20's. I will post it later.
Thanks for looking and I hope you all had a Wonderful Easter!!
