Now onto this weeks tutorial, it is Tracy’s first tutorial and she is very nervous so she wants you to be gentle with her, not that she needs it she has done a fabulous tutorial, so without further ado let's get on
The image I chose to use from Doodle Palace is Dillan the Dragon, and I would like to show you how I get a textured look using just one colour and the blender pen.
As it was a dragon I was colouring I decided to use Pear Green as my main colour.
I printed my image on to Mondi IQ 160g/m2 smooth white cardstock from Staples.
First I coloured all the areas I wanted to be green with Pear Green.
I then went over the whole area with the blender pen using small circular motions, I did this twice, allowing a couple of minutes drying time between coats.
As you can see, the result is a very mottled effect.
Using Pear green again, I touched in the areas I wanted the shadows and darker areas to be, and also put a little green in the areas I wanted almost white with a hint of green.
Finally I went over the whole image again with the blender, blending the areas I just made darker, I repeated this until I was happy with the result.
I hope you find this technique useful.
Hugs Tracy x
