Very nice! It's good seeing your sketches in color pencil (or graphite, or ink...)

I see a lot of growth in these from the post a couple of months ago. Good job. Keep at it.

I agree with Ellis... these are very solid.

The Dark Blue is a Tombow 8900-P pencil the other is a Prismacolor Col Erase Blue. I find I like the results from them. Also Tombow 8900-V and Col Erase Vermillion

Interesting, I didn't know that Tombow made pencils (had some of their brush markers at one time.)

You can get some of their graphite and standard color pencils here but the 8900 SERIES is hard to find stateside. Daiso stores had the Vermillion 8900 V and some of the 8900 VP, which is half Vermillion and half Prussian Blue. After expermenting with them I found I like them. Not too soft like a prismacolor and not too hard like a Verithin. I bought up what they had and they said they won't get more because it was out of production. Well my research has that as a lie but you can only get them from Japan and most stationary operations won't ship outside of Japan. So I went via a proxy service and got 5 dozen of the Blue ones. It averaged out to as much as I would pay here after shipping and fees. But at least I got some.

Thanks for the information Jim. I tried looking for tombow color pencils on-line and could only find them on a Japanese site. Just as well. I have lots of prismacolor pencils already and just found some more while organizing.

You can get most markers and standard pencils but I did find the 1500 series color pencils

These are more common in the USA but you still have to look for who has them.

the 8900 series are next to impossible to find outside Japan. Thats why I went the route I did.
