i have been practicing the coloring and bits by bits i am getting there. this week acm has the spectrum noirs on sale 50% off and i went i got some :D
so far, i can see they blend well on my watercolor paper from strathmore but i definitely need to learn how to shade, lol. the hair on my lucky girl was not that lucky, lmbo.
this lucky girl is from the newest release at SK DIGIS and i chose her to my practice with the spectrum noirs since the dress needed a bit more coloring than what i am used to.
( i might make a tag from it)
2.75" wide x 4" tall
---you do know how much i love bright, rich colors but i must use softer hues for my coloring until i learn this coloring business (if i ever do)---, i believe it simplifies the trauma, lol
lucky girl has glassy eyes (done with glossy accents) because she did not sleep well last night, she came back from the oscars really-really late. hehe
another view to see the stickles and, the snapshot (polaroid) frame with the stamped background and, a close view of the hair, lol....you can see i need lots of practice in the shadowing department, hehe.
and on this last pic (you can not see it because it is white) but i used washi tape, and i stamped on it the shamrocks and sentiment. i did not want to stamp right on the frame just in case i had trouble but i did not. i used a dye ink for it and it did not smear. actually, i like it a lot...it was not my intention to have it transparent, but it worked. i really like how my lucky girl turned out despite the blotchy hair :D
