I like the hair texture.
And the way you use watercolors is amazing. I like this technique very much, but i have to recognise it's not an easy one. With every watercolor i make, i want to became better and better. Never give up, allways trying and willing to do more.
What kind of watercolors do you use? And what kind of brushes and paper? And how you manage between watercolors and watercolor pencils? Just add the final details at the end?

Thanks!
That's rigth, we must never give up.
I use a school pack called " Color & Co" from Lefranc & Bourgeois and the watercolor pencils are "stilnovo" from Giotto also a school pack. Keep in mind that those are just the one that fit my wallet, they are better than an extra cheap pack i have but still, the cheap ones were important in the learning..What i'm trying to say is that things, no matter how cheap, will work for you until the need for something better grow in you.
I use mostly a waterbrush from Pentel, but for larger areas i use a flat "normal" brush.
After the sketch and cleanup, i paint the areas with watercolor and then let it dry paint it again until i reach a certain mix of colors to define the mood. After this i use the pencils to add small areas of color and then, water it again...I also use the pencils for the final little strokes without adding water.

Please note that i'm learning this, so...i can be wrong ;)

Thank you so much for the explications:)
It's really nice from you to explain in details the way you use watercolor technique and materials:).

I'm learning it too, and i will try to use watercolor pencils. I have some but i use them witohout water :p.

Also i know the need for better materials as you develop your skills and technique. 

Keep up the good work. And keep in touch :)

Wow, this is a late reply...I'm sorry about that, you probably did figure it out by now...
From what I know:
*They can be used as normal color pencils to paint stuff and then go over with water to smooth.
*Used after to add details, can be done with the canvas wet or not(while wet the lines will be smoother and it's good, for let's say, hair and fur.That's also good for loose, hard or no edge technic )
*Used to pick up color directly from the tip( let's say, with a waterbrush)

So, you can do a painting entirely with watercolor pencils or use them as a complementary tool.
Hope it help 
:)
