    colored pencils!!

    For anyone out there getting into colored pencils,
    i've been doing so for the last few weeks, and I think they're great!

    But they are kinda like high end crayons,
    and you'll probably notice that the shading can be kinda "grainy" at times,
    and that the best pencils are the ones that flow the smoothest.

    well I think most people think prismacolor are the shiz,
    but I found an old set of Spectracolor pencils that I have from when I was a kid and they kill the prismas!!
    only thing is that they're discontinued as of 1997 (yeah real old pencils haha)

    SO a quick online search revealed that a new brand called Derwent colorsoft are suppossed to be even superior to the spectracolor.

    SOOOOO if anyones looking for a top notch colored pencil check out the derwent colorsoft! (not an add just stoked on finding new info )
