Rainbow Dandy Lion Video

 Hi Everyone, it's Faye here today :)

I absolutely adore the Dandy Lion range of stamps from Stamping Bella, so decided I would play with Rainbow Dandy Lion today. He's such a cute little chap. I've been colouring a lot of Halloween and autumnal projects recently, so it was nice to step away from the rich reds, ornages, purples and greens and work with something a little softer.

You can watch me colour this image by clicking on the You Tube Logo...

Copics Used...
Lion; YR30, E50, E30, W1
Mane; E50, E30, E53, W3
Nose; E25, E47, E49
White; W00, T0, T1
Yellow; Y21, Y32, YR31
Peach; YR000, YR00, YR01

Thanks so much for stopping by, have a great day...

Autumn Colors

Hello everyone, for my blog post  this month I thought of using warm colors, which recall autumn.

I leave you to the tutorial:

Drawing with Copic Multiliner.

I make the base for the complexion with E000.

Complete the complexion, eyelashes and lips with E00, E11 and R20.

I use E21, E33, E37, E34 and Copic Multiliner to color eyes and eyelashes.
C-1 for shade in the eyes.

E000 to color the dress.

E41 for the shadows of the dress.

G99, YR68, E41, R05, G21, YG91, E37, YR31 and E33 to color the leaves.

Y000 to color the base of the hair.

E21 and E11 to finish fading the hair.

I use a white gel pen to give light.

This is the end result, I hope you enjoyed it.

A Halloween cat video... & a limited palette!


Hello everyone! It's Delphine here today to share some colouring inspiration. I thought I would focus on the colouring of an image without a background for once - I did have beginners in mind when I picked my image, thinking how important it is to focus on the image and mastering a few techniques before creating backgrounds. I also wanted to show how you can limit the number of markers you need - just by changing one colour in a combo and applying a different quantity of colour :) And so, today's image uses 8 markers only.

I chose a Halloween stamp from the "Des bonbons ou un Sort" set, a set made by a French store named Toutencolle. I find this Halloween cat super cute - and a great opportunity to show how to colour black and grey. To me, buying a set of grey markers is very important when you start - Cs or Ws, Ts or Ns if you have Sketch markers. No need to have all letters and all numbers, just one set with every other number is great!

Enough talking, here is the colouring process video :

As you can see, I didn't ground my character, no shadows below since I plan on using my Copic cat on a future mixed media project and will cut it out.

Here is a recap of all the colours I used:

Cat: R20, W3, 5, 7
Hat: 100, W5, 7
Buckle: E37, Y11, YR23
Broom: E37, Y11, YR23, W7

That's all from me today, thanks for stopping by! Hugs,
Delphine xx
