    Well done all round. I think pencils are under used as an art medium.

    NOTE: The picture in the silver frame was done by me in Dewent pencils on black paper. Try it they give a great (different) affect.

    Thank's so much. These are some others done with coloured pencils on Black paper. Click on the Fish to get it full size and if you have a blue/black light (in a dark room, of course) it reflects beautifully. Dear Frankekka I si not mean to highjack your instructable but you reminded me to get back to the pencils again and try the Black paper the effect is so good.. Great stuff.

    Thank's I'm particularly fond of the pearlised colours and Iv'e even used the marbled colours. (3 colours of lead in the same pencil.) I hope others follow your tutorial, it's a great medium.
