A simple piece based loosely on a magazine picture... I was concentrating on the lighting and added elven ears to give myself a challenge. It's on bright purple paper (scrapbooking cardstock, actually!) and is a tiny bit too big for the scanner (there's a little more on the right edge). It was done with brown drawing pencils covered in a limited (and eccentic) palette of Prismacolor pencils... I bought a few of the more unusual colors singly while saving up for a set of 48. all in all, a very good learning experience and a decent picture.
