Pastels are unlike any other medium. In fact, they are so unique, finished pastel drawings are referred to as "paintings".  While clearly a drawing media (they are applied dry), the finished result resembles a painting. 

Unfortunately, new artists will often begin a pastel drawing and "give up" quickly. Pastels can be difficult to control when they are first applied to the surface. But with a proper understanding of the nature of medium, anyone can find successful results.  It simply requires a bit of patience and practice.
