    Color Swatch: Hair Color Combo 2, Blue-Black Hair

    On this edition of Color Swatch I am tackling a Blue-Black Hair Combo with both Spectrum Noir and Copic Markers. With any black hair color combo I recommend going all the way to black, not just a dark grey, and that’s what I’ve done with these two combos…     On both of the swatches I noted the paper I used to color these on. I’m getting better at using the bullet tips for hair. I’ll slowly switch out my chisel tips for brush tips but I’ll just look at it as practice until then. Besides the differences in how I laid down the actual color, I think this color…

    Color Swatch: Hair Color Combo 1, Blonde

    Welcome to the second edition of Color Swatch! Last time I shared with you a basic light skin combination using both Copic Markers and Spectrum Noirs. This week I’m going to share with you a basic Blonde hair combo For each of these colorings I used Copic XPress It paper and compared colors until I came up with 2, 5 color blends that were really similar. Each has 4 colors and 1 for a shadow color. The shadow color is added on the gradient after the dashed line so you can see the mix with and without.    This combo does look a little different in person vs in scanner,…

    Color Swatch: Skin Combo 1

    Today I’m kicking off a new series that is going to be recurring on my blog. I’m calling it Color Swatch. Recently I got my hands on a set of Spectrum Noirs, I’ve had a lot of people request color combos or my take with this brand vs my trusty and well loved Copics so we’ll be going over some color combos that work for both. I want to be able to provide my customers with a wide range of information on what’s so everyone can benefit.   A little aside. The color combinations, while very similar won’t be exact. You are not going to find an exact match between…
