Yay - the weekend is finally here!!! Not only do I have a new Unscripted sketch for you, I also have an itty-bitty Copic tutorial!
Over at The Pink Elephant - some of us collaborated on a little "How we do it" post that covers face and hair using Copic markers. I used Lori Boyd's darling Lollipop - LACIE! Isn't she the cutest? Claduia over at Die Cuts R Us is having a Copic sale this week - Sketch markers for $4.25 - YIPPPEEEEE! I AM SOOOOOO THERE!
Below you can see snapshots of how I layered the colors for my card, and the colors are in the top left of the pic:
When doing skin & clothing - I always lay down a thin strip of the darkest colors on the side I'm putting my shadow. Just pretend a bright light is shining on one side of your image & the closest side to the light will be the lightest & the farthest away will be the darkest! I always put a shadow under the hair, too. Then I go back with my lightest color & blend, blend, blend!
Blush is probably my least favorite part AND the one I usually mess up! I just put a big dot of color & then try to blend it with my lightest skin tone.
When I do hair, I do the opposite - I work light to dark. I always put down my darkest color at the roots. (just like real life - lol!)
Make sure you go see what the other Pink Elehant designers put together today, and also the new Unscriped challenge!
Have a terrific weekend!
