Painted Turtle Work In Progress

Work in progress of my newest piece “Painted Turtle”. This is being drawn with Prismacolors Colored Pencils.  I am using Neon Yellow, Neon Orange, Neon Pink, Non-Photo Blue, Ultramarine, and Neon Green.  This is the first time I have worked with neon prismacolors, and they look great on the paper.  Very bright and vivid color, and under fluorescent light they seem to glow!  The problem is translating that vividness to a scanned or photographed digital image.  It does not really translate exactly, especially the yellow and orange.  The yellow is so bright in the drawing, but looks so, regular, in the scan.  And the oranges seem to disappear for some reason.  Hopefully once this is completely done, the scan will look better and I can adjust the white balance to look more true to life.
