Sweet little girl!
My sweet little blondie
I love this little girl... I used opaque white on the polka dots and smashed them in the scanner before they were dry... but I still love her. She is from Stampavie.
It was only a few months ago that I hated working with red. I have recently noticed that I am totally drawn to Red when I go to color things. I have learned to start off with R22 (Light Prawn) before I add R24, or R27.
When using dark colors like dark gray (shoes) or Red (dress) I color my image without being very heavy at the edge near the lines. If need be I do a quick sweep around the edges when I am done to make sure that all the white spaces are covered. The background is lightly airbrushed with the Copic Airbrush System.
Tip of the Day: DONT GET THE EDGES OF YOUR IMAGE VERY WET WHEN USING RED OR IT WILL FEATHER OUTSIDE OF THE LINES!
