Ok so im a nut & just discovered iv had a small pastel kit in my closet that i bought a year ago at a garage sale but for some reason convinced myself it was a water color set...
Anywho... i dug it out tonight & here is my VERY FIRST pastel drawing! By no means fantastic lol Nothing like the stuff Kayty can do! Very messy stuff. Dont have any of those fandangled pastel crayons either so it was sort of a pain to try & do the eyes with a big stick of pastel!
The scanner also did me the lovely courtesy of lightening up all my not-so-heavily-covered spots

Oh my word! That is so good! (: ESPECIALLY for your first time with pastels!! Geez, I'll be lucky if I could ever be half as good as you!

beautiful job!! Is that oil pastel though? I find oils are bloody tricky to work in!

Lol i don't know!! They dont feel oily... & they don't smear/blend as well as i'd expect oils to... i definitely gotta get a proper set though.

Do you get a fine dust come up from them when you use them? If they're dusty, they're chalk pastels, the oils tend to grip onto the paper better and leave a thicker, crayon type look when you draw a line with them

Yep that's oil, **** clumps!! If you got a result like that in oils, you definitely need to invest in a set of chalks because you have some real talent there!
