Hi there!

Today it's my, Helen, turn again to show you some colouring.

The grass got: G40 - G43

The tree trunks got BG13.

The skin got: E50 - B20 - E21 - E11 - R02 - W3

 I had to lower the tree trunks by adding in tree tops used BG15 - BG18.

Some how I decided to get the gnome a red beard, YR09 - E08 - E19
And I didn´t use one of the colours from the mushroom but it turned out the same...

I wanted him to wear a flannel shirt, and a red one...

 Hi again COPIC lovers!

Last month I did simply patterns and it was a fun coloring so I decide to make one more for this  tutorial. 

Many  markers this time. Not so much blending, just have fun add lovely colors and see what happens on the way!

Then I started with B91. I added B97 as a first layer

Add B01 

Step 3 
Blend with BG02

Step 4
Add more of B01 and blend with BG02 

Step 5 
Add B99

Step 6
Add 79 

Step 7 
Now I use BG09 and B99 and color with them about 5-6 times. Then a lot of  blending  with BG02 after every layer 
I did with B99 and BG09

Step 7 
Add YG01 and FYR1 

Step 8 
Add YG03 and blend with Y00

Step 8

Step 9
Blend all over the green and Yellow spots with G02

Ice Skating

Hello Copic lovers!
Today is my turn and I would love to get you inspired by using Copic markers!
As I promised no fairies today. I used an image from Tiddly Inks called Ice Skater.

My skin color combo is E0000, E000, E00, E11, E21 and R20 for the cheeks. I always start with E0000 all over the skin. Maybe I should try some other skin combos....

I go over my E11 with E21 in order to darken my shadows. I colour the cheeks with R20.

As this is a winter image I decided to use cold colors - cold greys and blues
For the hair I used C0, 02, 05, 07 and Black, starting with my lightest one and finishing with black.

I colored her dress with B91, 93, 95.
I do love this colour combo a lot.
Again I start with my lightest one B91 and finishing with B95. I brushed the colors on the lightest spots a little with my blender.


I added some shadows again with greys. C2 and C0, and blended with colorless blender.

Hope you enjoy this one.
Happy coloring and be inspired!
Hugs Rosi
