How to fix a failed coloring

 Hi COPIC lovers 

Today I like to show you how to fix a failed coloring.

Sometimes (me often:) make mistakes when we color. 

So today I took an old coloring, with lots of mistakes.

How to make the best of the situation?

This is to dark but tjat mot the worst 

The glas was no lounger a glas !! 

…Step 1

omg what to do with this one ? I used various  ink (0 Blender) on this and by mistake I took à LOT more then I needed. So the edges at  the glas was no longer at the right place :) 

The coloring was to dark as well so what to do ? 

First I decided to try to cover the 

edges  with a dark marker. 


Step 2 

Blend out B79 with V17 

Step 3
Add some blue B21 

Step 4
I used V09 V06 and V04 
Just make strokes and blend a lot.
I  did this a couple of times to put the color together.
At the end I draw some threes with V09

Step 5 
Here I took the various ink and made some bubbles with a 

Step 6 
I added some highlights with a gelé-pen sakura white 

I really dont know of the resultat are better the before, but its good practis and the most importent is that you try and nerver give up. 

Have a wonderful Day everyone !!
Lots of HUGS and SMILES

Skipper the Mermaid

Hello everyone!
Rosi there!

I'm here today with a sweet little mermaid. I do love fairies a lot but I also love mermaids.

This one is called Skipper and it is from the digital stamps selection from Sweet november stamps.
My skin color combo is E0000, E000, E00, E11, E21 and R20 for the cheeks. I always start with E0000 all over the skin. Maybe I should try some other skin combos....

I go over my E11 with E21 in order to darken my shadows.

I colored the eyes with B04,02,00,000

Her hair is a combo from E30,31,33

I decided to color her tail in violets. V00,01,04,05,06

Crab and starfish are colored with Y02,11,13,15,17 and E13

Sand is colored with E30,33,35
And the sea BG10,13,01,000

So thats all from me for Mermay see you soon!

Beginner vs intermediate colouring of a character

Hello everyone! It's Delphine here today :) For today's post, I decided to focus on the colouring of a character, showing 2 levels of colouring at the same time - certainly not to say one is good and the other is not good, but to show what real beginners can try to achieve, what you can do to try and improve your colouring and to show the differences between the two types of colouring. Open your eyes, and analyse ;)

So basically no card here since it is not the point today, but 2 coloured characters. For my tutorial, I used an adorable digi by Vera Lane Studio, a girl from the "I love hedgehogs" digi set.

You can see the colouring process for both characters at the same time below:


Here are the coloured characters, with beginner on the left, and intermediate on the right - and a recap of the Copics I used:

Skin: E000, 00, 11, 15
Hair: 100, W5, 7
Red: R35, 37, 59, W7
Pink: BV00, RV32, 34
White: B000, BV00
Green: G29, YG03, 17

Thanks for stopping by today, have a great day! Hugs,

Happy Birthday Gorgeous!

Hi there!
Helen here and today I want to show you a colored stamp image from
Doodle Factory and the stamp set Prehistoric.

As I always does, I used Perfect Coloring Paper and Memento Ink.

I sketched in a background.

This time I outlined my object so they blend in with the stamped image.
And I wanted a more cartoonish tree this time.

Starting of coloring the first layer of the skin with E11.

My darkest shade is E15 and the midtone is E13. He got some R00 - R02 on the cheeks.

For the hair and beard I layer in the highlights first with B24.

Next I added C3 for the whole beard.

And to darken the hair and beard I used C7 - C5.

For the peltry I used Y32 - YR24 - YR23.
And I didn´t stressed out trying to get a soft blending.
I knew I would add a pattern on top and if it was leather the color wouldn´t be even.

Added the pattern with E47.

The groundshades are E51 - E55 - E53.

The outside of the cave got C2. And inside I used C4 - C6 - C7 - C9.

The treetrunk is colored with E31 - E33 - E35 - E37.
I made some pattern in the darken area, just to hint that there are bark.

As I wanted the tree cartoonish, i filled the tree tops more even, not trying to define some leafs.

Scribbled in something to give the outside of the cave a surface used C4 - C2.
A shadow from the tree, C4 - C6, and my caveman, E55 - E53 - C6.
Some stones on the mark and a little grass used YG67.

I didn´t liked how the surface, spape of the wall of the cave came out when I tried to shape it.
So, I just covered it up with my sentence.
The receiver will not know :P

This is my first coloring of the image but I know I need to make another one.
I want to make him pale Scandinavien, red haired and in a winter scenery.

Happy coloring til next time.
