I used the polychromos colour pencils on the pastel paper to draw the #scrawlchallenge Honeybee illustration - I hope you like it. I don't usually work on a dark background, so this is a bit different for me.
The illustration is attached as a jpg for Patreons only - Click the link to download.
They sent me the box for free for review purposes, but I have not been paid to make this video.
http://www.http://scrawlrbox.uk are a subscription art materials service. Once a month, they send you a box of art materials and a challenge or two. The fun is that you have no idea what they are sending you. It gives you the chance to try well sourced, qual;its art materials that you might never see or think of trying. What a great idea! They tell me they deliver worldwide, which is even better news!
In this box are:
