I actually started on this before watching this class but now I can add some of the finishing touches you gave us at the end. I used Faber-Castell colored pencils. I took a lot of tips and tricks from this to use on my next project for my botanical art I do. As you can see on my pineapple I started, I was hyper focusing on each detail at a time. I am going to try your method and see if I have better results for myself as well as the highlight paint marker (LOVE that idea!). I usually have just been doing trial and error with materials for this but this really cleared this up on what works best for what you want to achieve. Thank you so much for the help!
