Cicci makes a Cup-cake

 Hi copic Lovers 

Cicci here posting from Sweden. Today Im going to make a cup-cake. 

First Im going to talk about some great things I learned from my father who was an full time artist. He died 2019 and its a big hole without him of course!! 

The little things I know about painting and coloring I have learned from him. Two things he always said about painting was:

-Never use Black!! Its a dead color and it makes your coloring look dirty- so never black!! Use instead dark blue or dark brown. Thats a great thing to know and I always think of him when I do colorings that looks like black. But I never use it. 

The next thing was...

-Always use white in your coloring!! Where you but the white its not the most important-Just use it. 

He also show me how to make paintings with dots. Im going to do this dots when I color the cake so its not so much blending in that part.

Step 1

Draw a Cup-cake

Step 2
Here I use greys and browns for the colors 
thats make the depth in the candy
C3 and E25

Step 3
Add R14 over the brown 
And add E21 over the grey

Step 4
Add R24 for the brown
and now it looks like red instead of brown ;0)
So for the depth using red colors you can use brown
YR31 and C0 for the grey one
The grey colors works at the same way 
for this skin and lighter colors
 as the brown working good with red colors

Step 5
Add a dark E47 in the edges of 
the brown candy

Step 6
Add E233 and blend a little

Step 7
Add Y26 for the other one

Step 8
Add Y28

Step 9
Blend with Y21 
Use Y21 for both

Step 10
I just colors the lines for the 
creme with R30
You can use grey if you 
like-think thats better but to late 
for me to change:)
Step 11
Now I starts to make lots of dots with lots of colors 
Nr 1 is my favorite Copic markers

Step 12 
Continue with Y28 and Y21 again

Step 13
Dots with E99

Step 14
Dots with E95 and blend a little
 with this one 

Step 15
Dots and blend with Y28
Step 16
Add E11 and I added some Y02 as well

Step 17
Blend and make dots with Y21

Step 18
Dots with E37

Step 19
Add and blend with E23

Step 20
Add More of Y02 in the middle

Step 21 
Add more dots and blend with Y26

Step 22
Add E27 at the same way 

Step 23
Add some C0 for the cream
Step 24

Step 25
