Video Tutorial on Coloring with Pencils

I made a video an uploaded it to YouTube. It's a quick 2 minute video on how I blend colors with my Prismacolor pencils. I had a more comprehensive video done, but it was 5 minutes long and for some reason, YouTube wouldn't upload the whole thing, so I remade the video and cut it down to 2 minutes. I'd appreciate your feedback. Did I leave something out? What should I add to the next one? Any suggestions for more videos? I used PeeWee, a justjohanna bird as the image to color.

Your video tutorial is wonderful! So for a recap with my small little pee brain. You put down your lightest color then hight light with your darker color....then blend in using your lighter color again. Adding more of you darker color until the image is the way you like it!

Ok, now I am going to eat some CROW! I think of blending prismacolor pencils are much better then the koh-i-noor color pencils. The koh-i-noor pencils are good to blend with OMS...but there is only 24 colors!

Great tutorial. Interesting to watch you build and blend the color. I also really enjoyed your "patter". It's fun to put a voice with your blog, stamp art, and face! Yay.

BTW, did you check the "Drawing Whiskers" utube video? Very cool.

Debbie, your video turned out great. And how fun to have a voice to go with "my friend Debbie!"

Super Tutorial! I am such a visual person...

So, tell me, some folks use baby oil or gamasol to blend... I noticed you don't.. Could you comment on that??

And, what sort of card stock are you using for the image... any???

Thanks!
And, just because you asked:
Tutorials that I would like in video form (since I am a beginner):
1. Zutter Bind it All
2. Perfect Pearls - how to use them
3. SU Water color crayons - do you use them? If so, can you demo them? And, do you have to use watercolor paper?
4. Watercolor images: and same as above, do you have to use water color paper???
I know, I know, long list.. too much coffee! But should keep you out of trouble!

DUDE...you rocked the video. I don't do it enough and so forgot how to blend it with color over and over. Thanks for the refresher. Show more colors in a bigger image next time if you want to make another one.
