Speed Coloring!

I thought this would make a fun video! (click to full screen to see it better)  I drew for fun this image and wanted to give some reflected light sources a go. This is about 2 hours of coloring condensed into about 15 minutes lol. I don’t usually start with the shadows first but with large of an image to color it seems to work best for me. Isn’t the lighting so much better than my older videos? I’m geeked about that! Finally figured it out 😀 Though figuring out the rendering of the video so it fills the frame is another matter (DH is on that lol!) Here are the colors I used…

A whole bowl of them after that pic lol The colors I used for the two reflected lights are Y21 and Y23 for the yellow and BG000 and BG01 for the blue. The darkest grey/purple portion of the shading on the skin is done with BV000, BV20 and BV23.

And here is the finished product after adding in a background via PS.

I’m going to be selling this as an art print soon in case you are interested 🙂 If you have any copic tutorial requests of something you’d like to see a vid of don’t hesitate to ask! I know I can’t think of everything but I’m excited to make more videos now lol.

      I used the C’s a smidge but I started off with E11, E02, E01 for the shadows then E00 and E000. Went back with BV000 and BV20 and BV23 for the darkest shading.

    This is one absolutely amazing video Kristy! I have never seen anybody color like that, with the blues and the yellows and the purples and that little strip around the edges you don’t do shading on… absolutely amazing! Won’t you come to The Netherlands and give a course or two? Loved watching this!
