MY BESTIES DT: COLORING FOLDS AND TRANSLUCENT CLOTHING



Coloring is all about creativity and finding new ways to bring your images alive.  I like exploring to find something new, even if it is just new to me trying it out.  Coloring folds and translucent clothing is something that I have wanted to incorporate when I color My Besties because the clothing is so fun and usually has tons of layers



When I color I flip flop between starting with my dark colors first and other times I start with my light colors.  Her I have outlined where I wanted my folds to be placed



Going over my first color and flicking out into the white space



Continue...



Continue...



and continue even further, finally going over the whole image with Y00 to blend in all the colors.  At this point I allow Y00 to fully dry and add repeat with previous colors where I want to add more depth



Using this last color, go over the whole apron allowing all colors to blend.  Once this color is dry repeat using the previous color to deepen the shadows



Using the lightest color Y00 I color in the apron not taking the color to the edges, leaving white space.
Using my top coat I went with W00 and went over the whole apron not alot because I did not want to have the 2 colors blend
