I've been feeling a bit 'blah' about the whole colouring thing lately so I decided to forget about cards for a while and just focus on the colouring bit and where better to do that than over at the Make it Colourful challenge blog? Their current challenge is colouring eyes and you should check out the amazing inspiration from the DT over there - Wow, big time!!!
Anyway once I picked my jaw up from the floor, I decided to give it a go as I figured the practice would be good even if the results may not be. I used the Melyssa digi and started off with a Halloween style in mind. I used Copics and a white gel pen for all of these but as usual, I haven't listed the colours ( I'm just not organised enough to remember to do so - I'm very organised in real life but when my artistic side takes over, organisation goes flying out the window!)
No 1 - Halloween girl
This was fun to do as the colours are obviously not the usual ones you would pick for a girl's face! However, I felt the eyes looked a bit flat so I tried again, this time making her into a woodland nymph (that's what happens when you have a glass of Pinot Noir on the go at the same time!)
No. 2 - Woodland Nymph
A bit happier with her eyes but I still felt there was lots of room for improvement so I decided to do one more and this time I would keep it plain and simple.
No. 3 - the last one (for now)
I do like the eyes in this one even though they are miles away from the fantastic examples of the DT - more practicing is needed but for now, I'm happy :)
Thanks so much for popping in today!
