We have big plans for the upcoming year, and one of them is to give you extra room for content from more outstanding contributors. If you would like to submit an article for next year, visit our site – we’d love to see what you have to share. SUBMIT AN ARTICLE

We start with our big Art Competition winners with over 500 entries for our judge, Kathryn Hansen, to choose from – our largest pool yet! Read the statements, then visit the online gallery at www.coloredpencilmag.com/competition to find more favorites.

This month we feature Naomi Jenkin, an incredible wildlife artist. Study her work and read more about her business and future goals.

If you are getting ready to render winter animals, Jess Pritchard has a special article for white fur on black backgrounds you will love. For a full tutorial, turn to Lisa Clough and create a robin with ribbon using Luminance. Daniel Shipton stops by to showcase his gems and the story behind these treasures.

Check out the excerpt on Tree Basics from our Quarto Book of the Month Big School of Drawing, purchase your copy and learn more.

To get into the Christmas spirit, we present you with our Big Brands Gift Guide, to include products from some of your favorite art companies. We also help you create quick holiday crafts using stamps and colored pencils.

Remember, we are going quarterly in 2024, so look for your March issue at the end of February.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
