Pastel and colored pencil on black velour paper.
Reference picture from

This is the first time that I've drawn on black velour paper. It was quite interesting. The artwork is really exciting to look at in real life because you can see the softness of the paper which makes the monkey look quite real.
Came across this picture

Here is an example of her traditional work that I love:
