Kitten: Where's My Mooncake by qqClare Kitten: Where's My Mooncake by qqClare
Derwent Coloursoft Coloured Pencils. This is my first full coloured pencil drawing, and many lessons were learned especially with white fur. The original reference photo (link below) was titled Where's My Coffee which is quite cute, but since I finished this on the day of the Chinese Mid-autumn festival 中秋节 I've named it Where's My Mooncake. Happy Mooncakes everyone!

This was meant to be more of an exercise in colour, a test in getting started with coloured pencils, and getting used to all the colours/combinations and experimenting (Yes i spell colour since I'm Canadian). I have to say I do like the control aspect, but find I couldn't layer as much as I would want in say, painting. Or maybe I press too hard :(

Thanks and your comments are much appreciated <3
