Hi ya everyone! Today, we want to continue showing off our student projects! On Wednesday’s this month we will show you how our students excel after working our class and practicing with our lessons!
When you enter the Basic Classroom here at Created from Color you are asked to color any image without any instruction. Kristy and I want to see your style and see where you are starting when you come into the course. This helps us evaluate where you are and help you on an individual basis. Let me introduce you to Lisa of Stamping and Things. You can see in Lisa’s post below that her first image was darling, but a little flat. After the class, Lisa recolored the image and check out the HAIR!!! Wow, the contrast and texture is beautiful. She also added some adorable pleats to the dress and upped the contrast on her skin and clothes. Each added element makes her image come to life!
Lisa started with a number of fabulous techniques already, especially a natural eye for shading and color. However, you can see that after the class she has an image that makes you say “WOW”. We’d love to do that for you as well. Kristy and I also asked Lisa a few questions concerning the course and here are her answers:
Lisa, what made you decide to take an online Copic Class? Have you taken one before?
I stumbled upon the Copic Markers from a Fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator. I was hooked and wanted to learn more about these markers. I was fascinated how well the colors blended together and I wanted to learn how to blend with the Copic Markers. I came across Created from Color website and saw they were offering beginner and advance classes. Also, there were many examples that the site offered.
What part/lesson helped you the most?
Using the trio system with hair, skin and clothing. I learned about highlight, midtone and shading and making your object 3D.
How did you feel about your coloring before the class and now that you’ve completed the class?
My coloring was flat and one dimensional. After taking the class, I was able to learn how to make my projects jump off the paper. Colors seem to be brighter and skin looks more natural and real.
What was your favorite part?
I really enjoyed the flicking technique. Flicking helped me with the blending of colors and creating fur on animals. Feather blending was another fascinating technique on how to blend two colors from different color families and make them look like they go hand in hand.
Thanks Lisa for talking to us and allowing us to share your stunning progress. Please stop by her blog – Stamping and things for more stunning projects!
