Over the weekend I got a little free time so I thought I’d finally open my ShinHan markers and one of my new stamps from Prima and see if I could remember how to colour in!
The image is stamped with a Memento Ink Pad which works perfectly with alcohol markers so there’s no messy bleed at the edges.
I started with the skin and hair, as I wanted to experiment to find the colour combinations I like, I think I’ve found a good one! I’ll be sharing it in a video and post soon – I’m experimenting with some other skintones now so I can show you a few.
Here is an in progress pic, showing some colour from the flowers and how I used the blender pen and greys to add light and shade – these pens are so beautiful to work with and the colours are so rich and vibrant!
and finally, the completed image – I’ve got a little bleed in one or two areas – my fault as I’m not used to working with brush markers so much (ShinHan also have some twin pens with fine nibs that i’ll be experimenting with next!) and was a little heavy handed in some of the smaller areas – I know how to get that right next time though, its all about experimenting!
I’m working on some colouring tutorials with these fabulous new markers now, let me know if you’d like me to use this image in one of them or if there are any specific stamps you’d like to see me work on or colour along with me on and I’ll do my very best to accommodate!
Thank you for dropping by today!
