Hi Everyone, it's Faye here :)
I thought I'd drop by and show a card I made using some rather mischievous toads from Whimsy Stamps. The set is called Mistletoads and each toad is getting up to something fun. Anyway. I thought you might like to see my colouring process for this image. So here goes. My light source is coming from the top left and I am mostly colouring from dark to light...
I like to lay down some of my medium colour first. I do this for a couple of reasons. First, if I change my mind about where I am going to lay the shading, I can disguise this by going over the top with a darker colour. I also find some of my darker colours can be a little tricky. They play a lot better if they have a bit of ink to sit on.
Fill the remaining white spaces with YG01 once the ink is dry. You don't want these colours to blend.
W3 and W5 for cast shadows (under his chin, for example).
Add E84 and E87 to the spots on the toad, this makes him look a bit more dirty ;)
Also use E84 and E87 for the rope.
B60 and blend out with 0
And that's the toad done!
Here's the complete list of Copics...
Green; YG01, YG03, YG63, W3, W5
Brown; E84, E87
White; B60, C1
Pink; R30, E04
Gold; YR31, Y26, YR27
Blue; B21, B34, B37
Red; R22, R14, R27
And this is the card I made for him...
That's all from me today, thanks so much for stopping by.
Have a great day...
