This tutorial was a big help :) Made me see all the things I was getting wrong in my coloured pics. Big thank you for it.

P.S. I see you use Prismacolor pencils, how recent is that set? Because I hear that their newer ones are awful due to their extremely fragile cores.

I'm glad it was helpful to you :icongreatjobplz: and that's just the way I use them, maybe it's not the best, but is the best way I've found to do it.
These colors were bought almost 2 years ago, I haven't tried a new set yet, so I don't know if that's true

Well, in all fairness that only applies to their box of 150 pencils. Its no surprise that a number of them would shatter in transport and such but for £113 ($120 or so) a box you expect a little care as well as bang for your buck.

I think it also depends of where were they made, I have a set of 12 made in México, and a set of 72 made in USA, and the ones made on USA have better quality, they blend together more easily, so maybe also where you buy them makes a big difference

Huh, it turns out they use wax in their cores and that the pencils can be easily toughened up by microwaving them for a few seconds till you're happy with the hardness. ^.^ There is a way to fix everything I guess.

If that's the case I don't think that would be a problem at all ^^
