I had a good experience with oil pastels I like it better then pencil because the colors make it more interesting to work with. I created value by adding lighter colors where the light source was shining and darker colors where no light would be shining and by adding more or less pressure. The overlapping is important because it help make the shapes look more 3 dimensional and helps make it look more realistic. I had added the light source by having lighter colors where the light would be hitting which help show a clear light source. The value is important because it not only makes it look real it helps give the drawings / shading look better and give it character. The final product is below the practice sheet is the one on top.
