1. Some Odd Girl Blog
See? I’m your last stop.
I have a lil goodie to share with ya. When I got started stamping/cardmaking last year I was at a bit of a loss on how to color my images. This year when I got Some Odd Girl started I KNEW it was a skill I needed to get working on. I decided to go with Copics as my coloring medium of choice so for my hop item today I thought I’d show you my fav hair/skin color combos. Like I said, I’m new to Copics which for all you newbs out there this really shows that you don’t have to have every color to get some good results.
I’ve got 5 hair and 5 skin combos for ya. I just colored the hair and face on Head in the Clouds Kaylee so the clothes didn’t distract from the different tones.
First here I’ve got a light brown hair for ya
I used a basic skin color combo here starting out with E000. The marker numbers are listed hair on the left and skin on the right.
Next is a beigh blonde
This skin tone is a lil pinker than the last. It has a R00 base with layerin of E000 and YR000 with a purty pink RV02 blush. I went so pink b/c the pink was already pinky in tone.
Now a bright red head
I started with YR00 on this (for the deeper sections) and then colored all the skin with E000. E11 added some more shading and R20 has a pinker blush than R02.
This blonde here is more of a golden blonde
Again, I started out with a popular E00 base then took Kaylee tan with E11 and E13 with the R02 blush.
Lastly I have a darker brunette
To me this skin tone combo looks a lil more olive since the base is more yellow than E00. E50 is a base for alot of my blondes if that is any indication.
These are my favs and ones I use alot. I am certainly a beginner and look around at what others do then tweak until I am happy. Like right now YR000 is my big WANT for skin tones. Here is a fun card I made using the Red Head colors and Sleepy Mae
