i'm usually a spaz when it comes to all things art,
but i recently went out and bought some oil pastels.
i thought i bought oil pastels, until i realized that they were soft pastels.
i've worked with both, and i'm liking soft pastels better.
the colors are really vibrant
and they're easy to blend.
i've been messing around, experimenting, and what not,
and i drew an octopus that i'm really proud of.
his shading is all wrong and he's quite strange looking...
but i'm still proud of him.
go ahead and throw some punches, if you want.
but what i'm really looking for is some tips on how to work with soft pastels.
or tips on how to master shading and highlighting in all the right places.
and also... tips on what kind of a fixative to use for soft pastels.
