I wasn't feeling so great over the weekend... I think I'm fighting off a cold. I had extra images from the coloring class with Marianne on Friday, so I curled up on the couch and my daughter and I colored all afternoon. I'm training her well... I cannot believe how awesome she can color and draw! I only grabbed a handful of markers, but it continually amazes me how much contrast you can get with just a few of those wonderful Copic markers!
Of course this image is covered with Sparkly Fluff (Brown Sugar sprinkled on the sand, and Appletini Green on the seaweed) along with my new atyou Spica pens given to me by Marianne (the new colors... yipee!).
One of the techniques I practiced was where you outline your image, then go outwards and lift up with the brush tip. I used my soft new BG000 to outline my little guy and swoosh away and out to make it look like he's under the sea. I LOVE all those new soft Copic colors... thank you Japan (and eP)! LOL.
