I bought a new pencil called Derwent Inktense. It's supposed to be water-soluble ink in a pencil form. Kind of like a watercolor pencil, but harder. Where watercolor pencils usually turn to a lighter color that blends easily when you wet them, this pencil got darker and had a shorter time being blendable. Once the lines and washes dry, they're not going anywhere, unlike watercolor pencils that can be re-wetted. Interesting, fun to try out but I'm not switching over to Inktense-only art.
I made a big ol' bear and a pronghorn jackalope! Wee! The color is bark.
