Welcome to the weekend fellow stampers!
The girl's day out shopping trip was a lot of fun and quite successful. So much so that we didn't get home until quite late and I didn't have time to make a card for yesterday. But I hope that I've made up for that with not only a new card but a couple of coloring videos to go along with it. :)
Like I mentioned the other day, I've been experimenting with a different shading technique on faces recently. It's funny because it's been a while since I've experienced one of those "Aha" moments in my coloring that has brought with it a shift in my style but this is one of them. That's why I love this hobby though, it definitely has the potential for constant growth and change which is exciting to me. And now I want to share how I go about it with all of you. It's nothing huge, just a subtle addition of shading across the middle of the face to allude to some facial definition on all of those nose-less characters that we all love to color up.
I used Holiday Anya 2 for my example because she hasn't seen ink before this but I couldn't resist some altering as well. I made an easy change to her dress by snipping away the ribbon tails and I also replaced her long ponytail with a sassy little side bun that I borrowed from Princess Anya 3. You can see the entire process on the videos here and here... or you can catch them over on the Color Me Copic blog.
Anywho, I hope you enjoy! Now it's time for me to get myself ready for work. Have a good one!
