I found out one of my friends on WetCanvas is also on DeviantART.com, because I found a thread on WetCanvas in the Pastel Studio/Gallery (works in progress and finished art) of a Snow Leopards Cubs Demo. dbjs took her time creating this series of videos -- an entire month working on a very large painting with Derwent pastel pencils and a few other supplies, including the Derwent "color sticks" hard pastels. There are eleven videos. The final one isn't numbered, just titled "Snow Leopard Cubs." The best way to find them all is to click on her name on YouTube and go to her page between them, other things kept coming up on the "videos like this one" and the episodes weren't all in order on the side.

Each is between five and ten minutes long, and they're in fast motion because she collapses an hour's work into five or six minutes of film. She used an actual film video camera for them rather than a digital camera. No narration but she chose music effectively, and added occasional text comments overlaid on the film.

Snow Leopard Cubs Demo Episode 1 -- from here navigate to her page or look at the sidebar when the next one comes up easy. Also please rate these. Dorte's had way more visitors than ratings, especially on the middle episodes and deserves a high rating!

Re: Snow leopard cubs
I hope you have many more, because that demonstration was magnificent. I'm still stunned at your doing a piece that huge with pastel pencils and only using sticks on the black background and a few details. It looks like the Derwent ones are really nice and soft too! I have Cretacolor pastel pencils, chose that brand for its also being watersoluble. I think Derwent has a larger range though.
