Just a'swingin'.......

Yesterday I watched this video tutorial by Sandy Allnock on coloring a nighttime scene and was so inspired that I had to try out her technique as well. Thanks Sandy! This really pushed me out of my comfort zone, and was so much fun. I always love trying things that stretch me as an artist.


I printed out a digital image from Mo's Digital Pencil and colored in broad color blocks, as Sandy explains in her video. The colored and white areas (except for the face) were shaded with cool greys,and the background was colored in with blue greys. I think this may have been the first time I colored anything Fluorescent Green...


I borrowed the sketch from this month's challenge over at The Craft's Meow, and I'm also entering Oozak's monthly challenge, since my card has a Christmas theme! So much inspiration everywhere.



Have a great weekend!!
Thanks for stopping by!

When I grow up, I want to be you. You're so talented! The coloring on this one is exceptional! Amazing. I'm a professional lurker, but I just can't keep silent on this one.
