Quixotic - Sketch

Hi all, talk about leaving this late, its been on all month and finishes in 2hrs lol, I'm taking about the challenge over at Quixotic Paperie which is the sketch below.  I fancied doing a bit of colouring and noticed this sketch I printed of awhile ago.  Wow I now realise why I have only used my polychromos when colouring snowmen or animals/birds as I really found colouring the skin really difficult and feel I have made a mess of it, especially when I use a brown pen to highlight the brow which I thought was permanent, and yep you guessed it, the pen didn't dry quickly, I decided to blend more and next thing I know I had brown ink everywhere doh!!! so I ended up going over it all in ivory trying to get rid of it lol.  Any body who uses these Faber Castell pencils and would like to send me some advice for skin, I certainly would appreciate it, I have the full set which I think makes it more difficult, too much to choose from.  Here is the sketch and card.....................

Right I better stop the talking and get and post this so I can add it to the challenge, you know what I'm like I could waffle on and on and on lol lol.  Thanks for looking. Kezzy xxx
