Well i had my first Copics lesson yesterday at my local craft store and it was heaps of fun. I definitely needed the help :) I can blend a little better now but need to practise quite a bit. We did a section on hair which is great because its an area that i really do struggle.
With this in mind i wanted an image that would let me play around with colouring in hair and got the inspiration from Coops who is on the DT for Crafts & Me. The Hannah Lynn images are stunning with lots of gorgeous hair to practise. I have chosen the one below to coincide with a couple of the challenges i am taking part in.
I coloured her using my trusty copics with some Gelly Roll, Aqualip and white Gel pen for good measure. I think i picked my brown (earth) colours a little too close together and found it hard to get the highlighted effect i wanted so i ended up colouring the strands alternating colours and whilst it was not the effect i was going for i really like it. I think i may print one of the images in a larger size to practise as that might help.
I am entering the following challenges
