Thank you very much!!!!

lives4dogshows acrylics are a great medium to work in, but you really have to get used to the speed at which they dry. Blending can be tough if you wait too long. But i love the vivid colours that accompany them, and the bold lines. Also, the fact that if you make a mistake you can paint right over it is a major bonus
Don't be afraid to use them - try them out on some illustration board, get a feel for how they flow, how to mix and how to lay down colour. Experiment a little first - you'll eventually fall into a style and comfortable way in which you can utilize them.
But remember, pencil, coloured pencil or any of those types of mediums are not novice stuff. Yes, they are how a lot people start out, but beautiful intricate work can be created with these, so don't be embarassed that this is your main medium for now. Its a great place to start, and a wonderful place to learn and grow.

acrylic is what i use and speed is everything, i don't know about your brand but for me the ones i use are cheap. That is a major bonus for me. IF i need to fine line i use a coat of non yellowing polyurathane inbetween the layers.
