Now that I got my geeking out, out of the way, I have a technical question.

A friend of mine tells me that she draws in pencil first, fully shading it in (so that the proper tones are in place) THEN she goes over it with the color she wants. Is that the way you work with your Prismacolors? I've always had trouble in getting the colors to be subtle instead of crazy overhued.

What I usually do is start off with light sketching with a mechanical pencil (because they erase to the point of nothing) and then come back in with a black prismacolor to make a tight and detailed pencil rendering. Unless I'm doing a black and white drawing I don't shade in my values with black. In the general area I'm drawing I start with the most prominent medium tone and then either shade darker or lighter where needed. I've gotten pretty good at mixing colors and find that the less actual colors you use and the more you let them naturally mix, the more realistic drawings tend to look. If your shading a green area (say Fett's helmet) and you want to add darker shades to part of it keep in mind your complementary colors to give it a natural shadow. Shadows are never just black :). They can be any dark color depending in the color of the subject, environment, or the light source. Hope this helps :). And thanks for asking :D
