The Make it Colourful challenge this month is to (1) Easy: Color with non-traditional skin tones or (2) Hard: try Creative Color Placement by changing the look of an image through the coloring medium only. This was right up my ally so I joined in with the hard challenge, of course. The coloring medium I used are graphite pencils: 2H, F, 2B, 4B and 6B.
Sometimes the hardest part is selecting an image to color and for this project, I used from Giant Flower and Razi Petal Sprite from Make it Crafty. I merged these two digital images together then started to plan out what I wanted to change. Most of the time I color faces on faceless characters so my goal was use a non-character image. I knew with the Giant Flower I could pull something off in the center, however, I still wanted a character and that’s how Razi came into the picture.
I’ll show you the original picture below (images from the MiC store) but for now… see if you can identify what I’ve changed. There are some obvious ones but I’m sure there will be a few that you miss. And if you DO miss some, then I like to count that as a success in being able to incorporate the differences in with the image.
The butterfly also has some chipboard corner embellishments from Make it Crafty too – did you see those? You can check out the store and look at the images and here they are merged in the same scene. Thanks for dropping by!
