Is this drawing drawn with pencil colours?
The pier is not looking like coloured with a pencil

I am using Prismacolor pencils which is a brand of wax-based color pencils. I finished off the picture with india ink. It is like drawing with a hard colored wax.

I see... can the prismapencil be erased?

Hey @amberkashif, here is a little bit of BEER from @yintercept for you. Enjoy it!

Did you know that you can use BEER at dCity game to **buy dCity NFT cards** to rule the world.

Sadly, it is really hard to erase prismacolor. So, one has to plan all of the highlights from the beginning and build up the picture in layers.

What I usually do is to draw the outline with graphite pencil. I then lay down the highlights in white and start layering other colors around the highlights. I have not mastered that technique, which is why you don't see intense highlights.

Prismacolor has a colorless blending tool that can pick up some of the extra pigment. I was able to remove a mistake with the colorless blender. One can lighten things with paint thinner.

Professional artists usually lay down a dozen layers as they build up an image. Some use masking tape or compounds for the highlights. Others use white ink for the highlights. i outlined objects in the picture with ink.

PS: There is a line of color pencils designed to be erased. I have not used it.


I am judging account status by the vesting shares column on This was my account status on HiveBuzz before my last token claim:


I am not sure what triggers the @hivebuzz badge. It might be vesting shares minus delegated shares; If that is so, I am months away from the badge.

Here is the proof art. I first wanted a dolphin doing a high jump. HIVE prefers landscape to portrait images; so I decided on a long jump.

I decided to break up the sea; so I drew a suspension bridge and a buoy.

There is not a reference photo. I actually just looked at pictures of dolphins, buoys and the Golden Gate bridge. I then went into another room and drew the pictures from my imagination. This is the proof of art picture.

Since I drew the buoy after the dolphin, I realized that my character was jumping into a trap and not out of one.
