ATC card and links.

Saw few interesting links today, while experimenting with ATC card for one artist, it is pretty hard to work on such miniature drawing.

Scanner does not pick up sparkles, so I tried to photograph it along with my pens, to indicate the size. On the left Uranus pen with dual tips, on the right Lamy Safari and my antique Art deco Smoker's pencil.
Here is the same card with sparkles looking at through the day light magnifying lamp, also one of my newest toys. Not easy to use it, hurts eyes and distorting image.

One of the links is about sharpeners, how to sharpen colored pencils. This led me to interesting tips on how to use vinegar for reviving dry brushes. Then I stumbled on magic scanning color pen, which is an idea yet. And earlier wonderful short movie about Tokyo.

Thank you very much, CrimsonLeaves, for encouragement, I am very self conscious about ATC cards, such tiny size. :-D
