Copic Sample - Enhanced

Hi! So, after my last post I spent a few minutes enhancing the elephant image I coloured. I didn't do much, but I think it makes a big difference. Here's my original elephant, coloured using B21, B24, and B28 (blues) and RV23, RV25, and RV29.

To enhance the image, I added just a little bit of shading with B60, pretending that the sun was shining from the upper left. It's pretty light in the scanned image, but it is there. Then I used E31, E33, and the blender marker to create some earth for the elephant to stand on. And to finish it off, I used G24 and G28 to add a few little clumps of grass around his feet. They came out a little thicker than I wanted them to, but you get the idea.

That's it for today! To learn how to colour with Copics, check out my class at Bizzy B's Stamp & Scrap on September 28 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. It's sure to be fun!!
