Birdie Love Scene

Hello everyone! It's Delphine here today to share a Copic scene featuring some adorable birds! For this scene I used elements from the MFT Tweet Friends set, and a heart branch by Penny Black from the All you need is Love set. I stamped my characters in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and stamped the branch in Memento Toffee Crunch to have a brown branch and to be able to go over the hearts in Copics.

As always, I started with the background. I coloured the sky in B00, 02 and created a grass hill using G28, YG01, 03, 17, 67. For the sky, I tried to have a few marks in the sky to suggest very light clouds, instead of making a completely blended uniform colour for a change. 

I then added a bit of interest to my background, creating bushes on the right with my BG72, 75, 78, G21, YG 01, 03 and suggesting more nature in the far background, using light colours - G20, 21.

Next I coloured my characters - B93, 95, 97, 99 for the blue of the male bird, BV00, 02, 04 for a more girly colour for the female bird. I added shadows on the white of their fur in W0, 1, 3 and coloured their beaks in Y35, 38. The mushroom was done in C5, R35, 37, 39, E41, 42, 43.

I then coloured my heart branch, only going over the hearts in R35, 37. I added grass blades in W7, G29.
And then, all the little details: pink and white dots in Posca pen to suggest flowers, a few hearts in R37 falling from the branch, shadows under my characters in YG67, flying birds in the distance with a grey Copic multiliner.

Grass: G28, YG01, 03, 17, 67
