So here we go Debbi’s last tutorial as a PFP design team member awwwww :(
This week I've chosen the Scotland Ian set from Digital Delights by Louby Lou as it fits in well with my theme for next week's PfP Challenge (you'll have to wait til then to find out the theme)
I use a slightly different style of colouring for this kind of whimsical character compared to the style I use for more anatomically correct characters.
Firstly I have printed the image out onto Stampin' Up Whisper White cardstock on my HP Photosmart printer
I've chosen to colour the skin next - I started colouring the darkest areas, under the hair line, under the chin, under the sleeves and kilt with Coral. Just colouring a small area. I then coloured over the Coral and outwards with Sunkissed Pink then repeated this for the remaining skin areas with Blush, colouring with small circular motions. By colouring over the darker shades, you blend away any hard lines between the shades.
I chose to colour the jacket and hat with one of the grey collections - in this case I've used Warm Greys 1-5. I started out with the WG5 next to the outlines of the jacket and hat. Colouring over this and slightly more towards the middle of each area with WG4, I repeated this stage with WG3, 2 and 1. Again, by colouring over what you have previously coloured at each stage, it will ensure any hard lines are blended.
At this point I added a little shading with WG1 to the areas of the image that I wanted to remain white eg; his frilly shirt, the pompom on his hat, his sporran and his socks
To complete his outfit, I used WG 4 to add some shading where I imagine there would be some shadow on his kilt. I did this before I coloured it as I find it easier when using several colours to colour in an item of clothing eg tartan, checks, patterns etc
I then used Yellow, Petrol Blue and China Blue to colour his kilt. I also used WG 3 & 5 to colour the other parts of his sporran, and Black to his shoes. I haven't shown it in the pics, but I will add some embellishments to his jacket for the buttons and I will highlight his shoes with sakura white gel pen.
I'll be turning Scotland Ian into a card for the new challenge on Tuesday, thank you for taking the time to read my tutorial

  2. You make it look soooo easy! For some reason, I haven't been that successful with the copics, better with water colours, which is more forgiving. I find that the circular motion takes me outside of the lines. I need to try just working in from the edge.

  3. After sending my message, I realize that your product isn't copics, but promarkers. I actually haven't tried these yet....but maybe I should! I need to go shopping!
