A Writer's Sketchbook - Colored Pencil



When I was young, colored pencils were by far the most convenient way to create colored art. They are easily portable, come in dozens of colors which can then be mixed, and you can achieve transparent effects with them. Even better, they don't make a mess. With them I drew maps and sketched characters, scribbled out floorplans and diagrams, and turned my imaginings visible.
