Today, we are doing something a bit different and are going to be visiting three students from past classes. Instead of showing you a before and after, we will be looking at what they are up to today. When Kristy and I critique our student’s work, we always try to be conscientious of their own personal style. Not everyone wants to color an image bold and striking, especially for those that want soft subtle creations. What we try and teach everyone is basic Copic skills that enhance your style. Showing you how to blend and add depth is our goal.
Let’s start with one of our wonderful students Faye! We love Faye for so many reasons; hilarious sense of humor and her wonderful coloring style. It’s like BUTTER. The smooth transitions she makes between light and dark are stunning. Here is a perfect example of this:
Gorgeously smooth right? The light source is consistent and really she blends those colors seamlessly. For more gorgeous work from Faye, please visit her blog at Stampin Fluffnstuff.
Next up, I’d like to share the gorgeous Rae Ann’s creations. Rae Ann came to us with her own unique style. She had a bit to work on from blending to light source, but overall she had a very smooth coloring technique. Check out her gorgeous white coloring on the image below.
You can see she added in some gorgeous pleats using her gray tones. This is a lesson we teach in our Basic Class. For more of Rae Ann’s gorgeous work, head over to her blog, All That Glitters is Smurphy.
Last, but certainly not least, is Anna. Anna is a wonderfully light Copic user. Most of her colors are in the very pastel range of the Copic chart. WE LOVE IT! Soft and subtle is her style and she was able to develop her technique in our class. Check out this amazing image from Anna;
You can see she’s still got a light touch but she’s been able to work in subtle contrast that so works with every image she colors. For more of Anna’s gorgeous work please visit her blog at Scrappalicious!
