Re: Colored Pencil Color Charts

Well, this is all right for now, but if you ever get serious about this, you will need to buy some more pencils.

Just kidding of course.

Re: Colored Pencil Color Charts

Now that you've made your color charts, what are you going to do?

Re: Colored Pencil Color Charts

Well, I thought people here might find these helpful in deciding what set to buy or what color could be substituted for another, but I seem to be wrong. It was probably a stupid idea to post these. Sorry.

Re: Colored Pencil Color Charts

No, it's not stupid. It's very helpful. I was just wondering because you spent all that time making the charts, what you were going to do next. I'm sorry if you were upset by my response.

Re: Colored Pencil Color Charts

It's not stupid. The thought of all those pencils just boggles my mind. My personal preference is to have far fewer pencils, because I'm lousy at decision-making! I would spend so much time deciding what pencils to use, and get nothing done. A personal weakness. If I had all of those pencils, I would definitely need those charts!

Re: Colored Pencil Color Charts

No no no, not stupid!! I only use prismas, but I was scrolling through this saying "holy crapnoodles she has a lot of pencils" in utter awe, so I got to the bottom and posted that... If I offended, I apologize.. I can see that this would be extraordinarily helpful to someone who, like you, has a lot of different brands, you lucky ducks!!

Re: Colored Pencil Color Charts

I think this is very useful! Thanks!
I like to do these when I get a new set of pencils in one of my sketchbooks. What I would love to see you do is compare them. Tell us how you like them, what you like and don;t like about them. That sort of stuff.

Re: Colored Pencil Color Charts

This is GREAT!! I love some of those discontinued Prisma colors! I have smaller sets of some of these brands and it's cool to see what the colors I don't have look like. Makes me want to run to the store! My Christmas list is going to be L-O-N-G this year!!

Anyway, thanks for posting this. It is very helpful to see what colors from different brands could be substituted for each other!!! Plus, what a yummy way to drool over all those fabulous colors!
