Step by step drawing "Piggy"

Here is the next step by step guide of one of my colored pencil drawings. 
In this post i will show you how i worked on this little pink piglet. 

This drawing was made using Prismacolor Pencils and some Derwent Coloursoft Pencils on Daler-Rowney Fine Grain -Heavyweight Paper. (please note that i am not affiliated with any brands, but i have added links to materials used for people that might be interested) 

1. The first thing i started to color after the initial sketch was done was the snout of the pig as it would be the most color intense part on the drawing. Using layers of pinks and reds i got the nose to a satisfactory point and started working on the ears.

2. At this point i did one of the piglets ears and compared the colors with the snout. I was pretty happy with the intensity of the colors and started working on the rest of the body. 
First thing i did was put the eye in its place leaving white where the eyelashes would be and then continued on with the shading around the eye and the snout.

3. at this point the drawing is finished. 
I added a few more shades of grey and pink the the fur on the pig and added shades of purple and grey to the legs. 
In places i used a white gel pen to accentuate the fur and to add some details to the drawing.
I decided to leave the background white as this would make the piglet the center of attention. 

This drawing took about 8 hours to complete. The coloursoft and Prismacolor pencils can easily be blended together. I used the pinks from the Prismacolor set as they have great variety of shades that were perfect for this drawing and some shades of grey and purple from the Coloursoft set. 

For questions leave behind a comment and i will get back to you as fast as possible!

Until the next time!
Happy drawing
