I really love the way this turned out, aside from it being a baby version of Apocalypse, it's very different from anything else I've ever done. Because of Apocalypse's skin tone being gray I chose to use a gray card stock to work on. I think it ended up with a lot more depth and it forced me to work with my colored pencils differently. This was also the first time I've used colored pencils for a portrait piece...it was a little nerve racking since you can't really erase colored pencils, I tackled it very slowly. The whole time all I could think was, "Don't mess it up, don't mess it up!!!" Let me know what you guys think!
