Fairy and Her Bunny

This is Fairy and Her Bunny from Whimsy Stamps and I have a picture tutorial on how I colored her face. This fairy has been colored wonderfully in so many ways that I had a little trepidation starting. But I thought some pink hair would help me out and decided to get started nonetheless. The tutorial shows how I colored this fairy and I use the same techniques on all the faces that I color in this way. Hope you enjoy it.

Thanks for those asking for a tutorial. It’s nice to know what is helpful to show and what isn’t. 😀 So this is how I color a face when I give it larger eyes. I first define the features with the skin tones, then add the pupil, shading and finish up with a white gel pen. The face doesn’t really sparkle until the white is added so keep pressing forward to the end.

These are the Copic markers I used on Fairy and Her Bunny:
E30, 31, 35, 0000, R12, B01, 69, 05, C3, C1, E49, W8, BV23
E04, RV14, R21
BG93, YG11, G21
YR30, 23, Y35
B52, 01, 00, 000
YG63, 17, 99

For the wings, I didn’t color them and made sure to color the clothes and hair under them. Then I used a glitter pen to color the wings and the white gel pen to make some highlights. I also used the glitter pen on the “Hello” sentiment, which is a Make it Crafty chipboard embellishment.
