Art brings me joy. I wouldn't be an artist if it didn't. But like everybody else in the world, I have a life outside of my art. I won't bore anybody with many of the details here, but sometimes life gets busy, and it becomes difficult to juggle life and art.
I think the hardest part about being an artist isn't the skill required to draw. That's sometime that comes with time, patience, and practice. The hardest part for me is finding a way to push past the things life throws at me and continue drawing, even when the drawings stubbornly refuse to let me finish them.
A short time ago, I started hearing reviews comparing Faber-Castell Polychromos with Prismacolor colored pencils. Naturally, being the curious individual that I am, I wanted to try them out. Being the OCD person that I am, I read reviews, studied results, and ended up buying a full set for my birthday (Yay). I also had heard a lot about Stonehenge paper, so I thought it a good opportunity to try the two together (which I would find was a big mistake). Before I go into the review on Polychromos pencils, though, here are my thoughts on Prismacolor.
