Yes, the speed is what I like! They usually take somewhere between 1 and 2 hours to do :grin:

You've been blessed! With my ability it tends to take me much longer, depending on size, and complication. Also, you can do color pencils, too! I rarely accomplish anything good with color pencils. :blush: :blush: So, to you, again!!:whip: :whip: :clap: :whip: :ok:

It's just a matter of practice, and being lucky enough to be able to invest the time over the years. No reason someone with your graphite technique couldn't convert it to colour pencil - maybe you need to try a few different brands until you find one you like? Or some different papers?

Would you find smooth less comfortable to use with color pencils? Making a mistake on smooth with graphite, is hard to fix very easily.

No, I do all my colour miniatures on smooth bristol (Daler Rowney Airbrush) but you need a light touch, just building the colour up gradually (or not enough sometimes in my case!). The usually-advised texture for coloured pencil gets in the way of the tiny details.
