Another new image from the August release and what a beauty she is

you can shop this image here

When I color I am learning to mix up my coloring mediums to get deeps shadows and accents.  For this Bestie I colored her with Copic Markers and Prismacolor Pencils and Gamasol.

Coloring is all about creativity and finding new ways to bring your images alive.  I like exploring to find something new, even if it is just new to me trying it out.  Coloring folds and translucent clothing is something that I have wanted to incorporate when I color My Besties because the clothing is so fun and usually has tons of layers

When I color I flip flop between starting with my dark colors first and other times I start with my light colors.  Her I have outlined where I wanted my folds to be placed

Going over my first color and flicking out into the white space 



and continue even further, finally going over the whole image with Y00 to blend in all the colors.  At this point I allow Y00 to fully dry and add repeat with previous colors where I want to add more depth

To color the apron translucent you start with lightest color.  You color in the center staying away from the edges

Using W00 you will fill in the white space and then over the whole apron.  Don't blend to much, you want your first color to shine through
