Learning how to color…

I absolutely adore and admire Kate Hadfield’s work. I love her hand-colored elements, and I have always wanted to know how to make my creations look like I colored them myself. Since I am completely self-taught on my art-work, I hadn’t learned how to do this … until today.

I’m so excited to have found this blog post which shows exactly how to color and shade appropriately! She discusses using Copic Markers, which I am half-tempted to run out and purchased based on her tutorials, but since I can’t really draw worth a lick, I’m afraid that might be a bit foolish. Instead, I used these same techniques in ArtRage, and came up with this:

I’m pretty happy with my first attempt at shading with markers!

I am also just about ready to finish up the Art of Digital Design class at JessicaSprague.com. This class has helped me grow as a designer, and I now feel that I am ready to join all the other fabulous designers and make my little mark on the internet world. I am so very thankful to A Moment in Scrap for giving me my start. Here we go!

    So glad you liked the Copic Tutorial! If you have any questions so not hesitate to ask. I love to teach and help others learn to draw, it’s what I do. Your flower looks great, no matter what kind of markers you used!
