This is something I have been meaning to upload for the longest time! Below I have included all of my current colour swatches so you guys can directly compare pencil brand colours. I use my colour swatches for this purpose and also for colour picking. I’ve swatched out and scanned: Faber Castell Polychromos, Caran d’Ache Luminance, Prismacolor and Arteza Expert Coloured Pencils. I’ll be adding more brands here as and when I get around to swatching them or when I acquire more pencils! (You can never have too many pencils!!)
You’ll also find a single, blank swatch which I have given you as a sort of template, so you can download (right click and save) and print or trace onto your preferred paper! Super handy, I know 😉
I have a full tutorial to accompany these swatches (available on this website (CLUB PUFFIN), or Patreon) which walks you through my process and why I set them out like this. There are loads of different ways to swatch but this is how i find most useful. If you don’t wanna swatch your own pencils, feel free to just use mine. I’ve kept them unedited (just straight from the scan) as I know screen colours can differ and mine is configured to my printer so won’t be entirely accurate if I were to play about with the colours.
