I don't see any sign of you being stuck. you'll have to give us a little more info. This is starting out at a much higher level than I would expect from someone your age.

Wowza! I love it, but then, I'm a sucker for a snow scene.

From my experience with colored pencils, yes, you need to plan and sketch every detail before you start adding any dark colors.

White fur can be done with an embossing technique. You draw with an empty ball point pen and then use a blunt colored pencil for the background so that it can't get into the embossed lines.

Found this one...not sure if it will help.

I've inquired with a couple of artists, since shading with light grays would be the only answer I would have.

@Colorpencil I got a response, and she said she blends white with a very light gray.

I also got a second response, and he said he works around all the white areas with light colors followed by darker Browns and reds. Then some black for shadow. He then blends the white.

Hope this helps!!

When using color pencil the lightest to white area must be planned out and worked around. You could also use masking fluid to make sure you don't accidentally cover it.

Work things lightly first, it is easy to erase light mistakes. Once you are confident of placements you can start to darken, go a little at a time in layers until you reach the desired affect/tones. White is rarely actually white. You can shade it with light touches of grey, blue, tan or even green depending on what is going on around your subject, i.e...forest or sunset (where you might even consider pinks or peach-ish).

Hope this helps.

Never forget the first rule.....if it isn't fun you're doing it wrong!

Okay, I can do this,....I am an,....arrr, ....arrr,.....artist!
