I love how you've gotten your image even more realistic looking with the addition of the dark brown pencil! It's all about the layers!

Thank you SO much, Sherry! Using watercolor pencil for the base layer gives a good color "ground" so all I have to do is add the texture using regular color pencil. I actually drew this cat face stamp with this technique in mind!
