soft pastels are made of almost entirely of pure pigment. so you get much better vibrance and contrast than colored pencils. this is a fast drawing made with my new mungyo gallery artists soft pastels. they are comparatively cheap but have very richly pigmented soft pastels. in this drawing i have also used some pastel pencils from cretacolor
time taken 1 hours 40 min. yes they are so much faster than colored pencils.!!
