Quetzal Chalk 3 by chelsaroo Quetzal Chalk 3 by chelsaroo
I wanted to get a good picture up that had the full art into the frame, so here it is! That's me and my chalk drawing for a sidewalk chalk festival. It took about 13 hours to complete, and I am still a little sore, but it was worth every minute! P.S. that's me in the picture :)

We were given a set of soft pastels to use, I think about 46 colors to a box :)

Oh my gosh! This is absouloutely beautiful! You must really have a lot of patientence to even attempt to draw this for more then an hour. I love how you blended the colours! Did you just use your fingers, or some sort of tool for chalk, or even water? The colour of the chalk is amazing! what brand is the chalk you used for this from, or did you use some from different brands?

Forgive me for bombarding you with text and questions. Didn't mean to, just typed and kept on going until I was satisfied. :iconsweatplz:


PS: You look very pretty.

Thank you so very much! To blend the colors I started out trying to use a cheap paintbrush, but those turned out to be better for erasing mess ups really well, so I basically just used my fingers. The brand of chalk was Koss artists' soft pastels, 48 colors. :) Thanks again for the compliments, I appreciate it <3

My pleasure. :)
I see. I've never used soft pastels before, and have never heard of that brand at all.

No problem.

I love the color line work and shape. The best part about chalk is once it rains it's gone :)

Thank you! And you're crazy! I was so sad when it started raining knowing something I worked on for 13 hours was washed away just like that :P

Ok so it's called Koss artists' soft pastels 48 piece set. They worked really well and I think they are only about $25 :)
