I've been using Prismacolor pencils for a number of years. I recently started doing larger portraits, so I was looking for a media that would allow me to do larger areas and blend color just as easily. I tried Prismacolor's Nupastels. I enjoyed the feel of them, and the ease of use, and that they blended so nicely. But they don't allow for colored pencil to be layered over them for texture (like fur), and the finish is very matte and chalky, whereas the pencil are waxy.
I'm looking for any kind of feedback here.
