Sunset Bat from Summer Nights

This thrilling illustration comes from the book Summer Nights by Hanna Karlzon. I absolutely love this fabulous bat, hanging in a garland of precious stones and flowers. I had a blast colouring this one!

I used only Pablo Caran D’Ache pencils on this page and finished with a few Posca Pen details.

Pablo pencils can deliver beautiful colours, but there’s a learning curve when working with them: the best results are obtained by applying many layers. If you like to colour using only one layer, probably you won’t like them that much. Working with these pencils takes a bit more patience. If you enjoy layering, you’ll really fall in love with Pablo pencils and what they can do. Using different colours, you can build superb transitions and gradients and create shadows and volume. I admit that it takes longer to work by layering, but the outcome is so worthy! Pablo pencils create amazing artwork with deep, saturated tones and smooth finishing.
