Katy Perry Portrait Drawing

Hey guys! So the original photo I used is below. This portrait took me FOREVERRR! But I love it so much! I'm really into the colored hair right now if you couldn't tell. :) I used mostly PRANG colored pencils for this. I also have PRISMACOLOR pencils but I find that they don't blend and don't really erase, and I'm kind of clumsy so I like to know that if I mess up I can erase something. Or blend it out. The hair in this portrait took the longest. I used pinks, purples, blues, and black for the hair. For the skin, even though it is very light, I think I used every color in the rainbow! So let me know what y'all think! More colored portraits orrrr do you miss the good ol' graphite pencil black and whites?

Here is a link to my Etsy shop where I sell custom portraits:
