Here's the day's sketch too in Pigma Micron on Moleskine Cahier thin paper. Fuzzy Cubs have been born, and the males are getting hungry as one by one huntresses go off to have theirs.

You are a superfast writer. I am covered in cat hair and still sitting back at ~16K. I will get there though.

You will! I have faith in you!

I should probably write something about how to write super fast someday. Thing is, I need to crack "how to edit super fast" for it to become practical.

I always meant to ask:
What is your experience with Derwent colored pencils(if any)? I'm thinking of buying a set but, you know...

My favorite pencils ever were Design Spectracolor. How do they compare to these?

Re: Hi!
I love Design Spectracolor. I managed to find a couple of sets on eBay and snapped them up, they are wonderful.

I think you'l like Derwent Coloursoft. They are soft and creamy, they have the same sweet softness as Prismacolor or Spectracolor with more opacity than Prismacolor, closer to Spectracolor. It's funny you should ask that because the two brands I think come closest to Spectracolor texture and feel are Derwent Coloursoft and Caran d'Ache Pable. Try a few open stock of each or get a small set to see if you like them.

Don't bother with Derwent Artist/Studio if Spectracolor are your favorites. Derwent Artist/Studio (same formula but Artist has 120 colors and is over-wide with a wide core while Studio has only 72 colors and a thinner core) have a "dry" feel and are harder, more like an HB or 2B pencil at softest. They're good when I want to do very light layers, when I want fine lines and a more hard pencil.

Pablo and Coloursoft are the closest to Spectracolor. Prismacolor are that soft too and more translucent, the advantage of Prismacolor is that they just went up to 150 colors and are an old friend, definitely a staple in the USA.
