I’ve been looking forward to drawing this gorgeous girl for ages! Pearl is a sphinx but she has a genetic mutation causing her to grow curly, silky fur and curly whiskers!

I had so much fun rendering her fur and got to try out a couple of new techniques while drawing. I used Coloured Pencil Titanium White and Coloured Pencil Textured Fixative by brushandpencil to help create this piece. The titanium white especially was very useful for this drawing especially as it allowed me to go darker than I normally would with the fur on Pearl’s body and then lighten it back up again to create a silky look.

This coming week I will have a full product review and tutorial of the Coloured Pencil Painting Kit, including the powder blender and textured fixative by BrushAndPencil, as well as a smaller tutorial on how to spray fixative correctly, so stay tuned!
