Lissa Marie provided this digital image for me to color and show you some different techniques. The image Lissa Marie derived from a photo she had taken of her daughter.
Lissa Marie created two line images from the one photograph. One is simple line art; the other includes some shadowing that made light placement a bit easy:
Here are Copic colored examples of how to color the image:
With the example on the right, I intentionally used softer, muted colors and tried to blend some of the harsher lines. At right, I went bolder -- and used heavy dark shadows (for example, look under the hat brim). I then accented the marker with some graphite drawing pencil. Which do you like better?
Try your hand at alcohol markers like Copics!
