Head in the Clouds

Hi Copic lovers.

Rosi here posting from Germany and today I'm going to color a cute little elephant with balloon. The image is digital from Lee Hollandart- Elephant with Heart balloon

I used cold greys for the elephant, making flicks with C2 and C5

Then I blended further away from my C5 with C2 again.

Here I blended all the greys with C0. for his ears and cute stomach I used R20 and R22

I started the grass with G43.

Then I made some flicks with G46.

And flicks with G94 and G99

The heart baloon was colored with B91 first. Then I added some darkness with B93and B95 and blendd all together with B91

I decided to make some clouds.
I marked the lines with B02. Then I've gone further away with the B00

I blended with B000

I blended all over the blues with colorless blender .

Here is my finished project made for the son of a friend who turned 5 last month.

That's all from me today. See you soon.

I would love to see you following me on my Instagram and Facebook.
Bye bye!

Bumble Bee

Hi all!

Today I want to show you how I created this bumble bee. 
I drew this bee with a reference picture from pixabay.

First I drew a sketch to see where everything is supposed to be.

I colored the eye with C9, B24, B21 and C1

The head is colored with W10 and W9

The yellow parts of the body are colored with YR27, Y38, Y35 and Y17

For the wings I used W7, E23, C1 and 0

The dark parts of the body are colored with W10, E49, W7, B24 and the little legs with W10, E49, W7 and B24.

RV69, RV66, RV55 and RV63 are used for the flower.

And the green part of the flower is created with G29, G28, G07 and G24.

Thank you for visiting!

Sea You Soon - Little Mermaid Friends

 Hi Ladies!

It´s Helen here, and it's my turn to show you yet another image I have coloured.

This time it´s an image from Lili of the Valley - Little mermaid friends.
I just love Lili of the Valley. They are soo fun to colour and they make me colour in a more playful way.
I used Memento ink on Perfect Colouring Paper.

Started with my lightest skin tone to moisten the paper for finer transitions.

Then I went for my shadow tint, BV20, I layered E55 on top of the BV20 and moved on to my mid-tone, E53.

For their bodies I wanted to use the feathering technique. I used my lightest colours to fade them into each other, overlapping, blending, BG11 - R81.

Used BG11 - G16 - G02 for the first fishtail.

For the torso I used R81 - R89 - R85 - R83 for shading and roundness.

The second mermaid got a feathering of yellow and a grey-blue colour. Used Y00 - BG70 for the fading, blending.

To get some depth, shape and roundness I used Y00 - Y15 - Y11 for the torso and BG70 - BG75 - BG72 for the fishtail. And as you can see I used the tint of the torso on the edges of the fishtails.

The starfishes are soo small that I only used two tints, R00 - R22.

For the shells I used RV11 - BG70 - BG72.

For the clams I used BG70 - BG72 - B29.

Y32 - E99 - YR24 for hair.

V91 - V93 - V95 for hair.

C5 and T5 for some shading.

I didn´t want to put in colour for all the background so I just made flick marks with blue tints.
BG0000 - BG11 - B000 - B01, randomly. And it looks like light penetrating into the water.

I ended up using some Gelly Roll Dark White pen for some highlights. 

Hope you enjoyed this post and we all want you to post your mermaids on Copic Marker Europe´s Facebook group for us all to enjoy.

Have a nice day!
