Ooh, I see what you mean. Makes you wish for one of those poster sized scanners, eh? But yes, very smooth use of pastels here. Almost like you made it from clay instead. ^^

Awesome palette choice. I love the softness of pastels and you really used it to your advantage with this.

You do realise that if you ever tell me you're no good at traditional mediums all I have to do is link you to this from now on? :evileye:
