At the time of writing, there are six sets of Black Widow Colored Pencils – Black Widow, Scorpion, Cobra, Monarch, Skin Light, and Skin Dark. To make life easier for myself when using these pencils I decided that I would sort them into a traditional color wheel format. This makes it easier for me to turn the wheel and see which pencils I can use for my dark, medium, and highlight color when coloring.
After umpteen attempts at creating the color wheel and sorting the colors to my liking, I finally found a prototype of the color wheel that I was satisfied with.
As we all see color differently, I created a blank color wheel and one with my handwritten numbers on it. Although, I tried numerous times to type the numbering in it was far too slow of a process and much quicker to do by hand! You will see that there are some blank slices of the color wheel pie where I have not found colors that suit this color family. Rather than increasing the pie slices, I thought that I would leave them in as I am unsure if Black Widow will release more sets of pencils in the future.
