On Monday I shared 3 Ways to Colour Beards with Copic Markers. Today I’ve got a similar post and video for you, but with coloured pencils! Watch my video to find out how I like to approach colouring beards with coloured pencil.
As with the Copic marker version, even if gnomes aren’t your thing, this video will still be useful. The techniques work for any fur or hair texture. The approaches I share are the same ones I use to colour yetis, polar bears, and other animal images, as well as hair and beards on other characters like Father Christmas!
