Copic Tutorial Part 3- Finishing Sunny Baby Image

Hello Everyone. Ready for part 3 of coloring Baby at the beach? This time the tutorial will be about coloring in the rest of the areas and you can see the card I created with it! Perfect way to end summer since school is starting up!

Lets get started!

Here is the image and how I left off from the last tutorial (coloring sans). This time I am focusing on coloring in all the white areas on the image. I will be using quite a few markers.

I will start with her beach towel and coloring it green. I will be using G07, G05 and G02. Starting with G07 I will shade in the areas that will be the darkest (where the sun will hit last).

Now I will take the medium color (G05) and add to the color, spreading it out a little more.

Taking the lighest green (G02) I will finish coloring in the white spaces and all over the green areas to evenly blend.

Now I will be coloring the top area of the image (sky, sun, bird). For the sun I used Y02 and Y06. For the bird I used B60 and for the sky I used one of the newest Sketch markers B0000.

Now I will be coloring the little girl image. For her skin I used E00. For her hair I used Y17 for a darker blonde. For her swim suit and hat I used RV21, RV23 and Y17 for the little flowers.

Now it's time to finish coloring the shells (I used E95) and the sand toys. (I used YR04 and YR16)

Here is a close-up of the finished colored image!

Use the image to create a project! I used a card with some bright paper scraps that just screamed BEACH to me. I also put glossy accents on the sun and the sea shells in the sand. For my added embellishment I used a Prima flower and actual shells I got from our Florida trip in May.

I hope you enjoyed this part series for the Copic tutorial. Be sure to stay tuned for my next's a fun technique!!
