I made this tutorial to show how easy you can use your color pencil to make your marker's coloring PoP just a little more.. Here will be lot's of pictures, lots of balabering..
and even a mistake.. (swear it was just for sow and tell..haha.. I wish..)
This is just How I do it, and you must find your own, but hopefully this will help those who are a bit scared to try..
I use Prisma color pencils and will tell you what colors I have used here and a bit how I think..
And Yeah.. I've used one of the new girls..
Pre colored image with copic's
I've used these colors: Skin- E11, E00, E000, Hair- E43, E41,E30, Apple- R32, R20, YG 95
Lips/Skirt- R32, R20 Eye- B32
Socks/t-shirt- BG53, B00,B000, B0000
Shoes- E47, E35, E43, E41,E40
And it's Always smart to think Light source when you color.
Think where the light come from and try sticking to that
I start out with adding more shades to the skin with Peach and light Peach, I haven't used solvent to soft out on the skin colors, and for the cheeks I used Pink just apply a little or that color will be too sharp.
Here I've used solvent and a blending stump to soften out the cheek color
I also used Pink on the apple and skirt but no smoothing out,
sometimes smoothing out takes away the nice shadow
For the T-shirt /socks I used Aquamarine and Light Aqua add only where you want deeper shadow
Soften out with solvent and blending stump
For the shoes and books I used Chokolate and for some stripes in the hair
I've blended on the shoes ans book but not in the hair
Around the girl I used Sky blue light
And here you see what happens when you don't use a clean blending stump..
Just smooch out with a not so clean blending stump haha I knew better..
And for the shading under her feet I used French Grey 70%
If you feel your lines has dissepared under the color pencil, this will happen if you color over the lines, sharpen your black color pencil and go over the lines, not too much pressure, as these pencil's are very soft they break easily when sharpened..
Hope this gave those of you not daring to try a little push..
And tune in again Saturday to see what I did to avoid my BIG bump in the road.....As I will make a card with this Sassy sweetie then..
