Colored Pencil Drawings

Happy Tuesday everyone.  As most of you know, for a LONG time I have been creating and coloring all of my illustrations digitally.  I SO admire all of the beautiful work that you all do, so I thought that I'd try out 'hand coloring' myself.  I can't tell you the last time I have taken out my Prisma Pencils to do actual drawing.  Lets put it this way, I think my son Zach may have still been in diapers and he is just about to turn 18.  LONNNNGGGG TIME!  But, I was determined to give it a go.  And as soon as I did my colored my first image. . . I was HOOKED!  I can now see why you all are SO addicted to coloring.  I haven't done much 'hands-on' work since college and to be honest, I forgot how much I LOVE IT!  What a rush!

I recently re-opend my Etsy shop featuring my digital illustrations as prints, but decided to try my luck at putting these new colored pencil illustrations in the Etsy shop as well as the Sasssy Cheryl's Digis Shop.  I'm not sure how well they will do, as I know you all create your own beautiful masterpieces, but I just wanted to let you know that if you'd like a hand colored drawing created by me. . . .Sassy Cheryl, they are there for you to purchase.  Have a great day. . . .and I can honestly say now. . . .

Here are just three of my favorites.


  1. I just love them Cheryl! Your coloring is amazing. Gonna have to get some to put up at Christmas. You can never have too many decorations, right? ~jeni :)

  5. Hi Cheryl,
    Oh boy!! To be able to buy an image drawn and coloured by you would be the 'cats meow'.
    Fantastic idea - hope everyone loves them as much as I do.
    Love the way they are framed as well :o)
