Can I ask what technique do you use to get the colours blending so softly (particularly with the skin tones) :)?

Do you put a basic base colour, then work and blend in on top of that?

And how much pressure do you apply when trying to blend colours in?

I start by coloring the darkest areas very lightly at first, then I color the next lighter areas and darken the previously colored darker areas. I do this a few times over, gradually increasing pressure. Circular strokes work better for me than straight back and forth strokes. To smooth, I go over everything using a white or very light colored pencil with heavy pressure. You need to use heavy paper to do this so the pencil doesn't go right through the paper. I use Strathmore Smooth Bristol paper.
