For this size, anywhere from 6-10ish hours I'd guess. I've never really timed myself. I only have the capacity to do no more than 30 min. at a time, so I take lots of breaks.

Well, considering the fact that I have no idea what burnishing is, I guess it's safe to say that I don't do that...lol.

I just do lots of layers and press more firmly in the final layers to prevent too much white showing where the pencil hasn't gotten into the paper.

I am intrigued though. What exactly is burnishing?

Burnishing is just that! Haha. Here's the definition of it because it's early in the AM and it's more concise than I can be right now. :P

I got really busy this week, but finally sat down this evening to finish the drawing. I am so frustrated with trying to get good pictures of my colored artwork. I am posting a picture from my scanner and a picture from my cell phone. I'd love everyone's opinions on which picture looks more appealing because I am stumped as to what to use for advertising purposes.

1. Scanned picture: I like that it is sharper than the cell phone picture and that the background is white, just like the paper. What I don't like is that the areas where I added purpled and blue stand out like a sore thumb. The purple/blue hues are more subtle in the actual drawing.

2. Cell phone picture: Although the image in general is too dark (hence the gray background), the colors are more true to the drawing and the purple/blue hues blend in more. I don't like that the image came out a little blurry.

Next WIP. I am taking a gamble here and trying out charcoal paper for this colored pencil piece. I want to start using different colored paper, which charcoal and pastel paper offer. This paper is more toothed than I am used to, but with using that "burnishing" technique cream puff described, it's really not much different than coloring on smooth bristol paper. I just get tired of looking at white paper all the time. This paper is a light gray, though the images make the whole picture look darker than the actual drawing.

Progress as of tonight. Sorry, the picture is blurry. It's hit and miss when I take pictures on my cell phone.
