Hydrangea Fairy

So I've been trying to learn how to color images with color pencils, and I have to say it does A TON OF PATIENCE to get through an image. That's also one of the reasons why I haven't been making so much cards lately, because trying to finish an image takes so much time. And with only a few hours a here and there to spare, it took a week for me to finish this.

I've learned so much, and swear to go back and redo this image again. I've made mental notes on where I went wrong, and I'm itching to recolor it again using my Prismacolor pencils this time around.

So, here's my first take using Spectrum Noir Blendable Pencils. This is a free image from Yampuff. I suggest checking her page out. She's got so much images that are so pretty and just screaming to be colored.



Here are the colors I used.

Skin - 02, 04, 07, 08, 89, 96, 100
Hair - 84, 108
Dress - 76, 75, 82
Wings - 78. 76
Flowers - 11, 76, 74, 75, 82
Leaves - 44, 46, 60, 48
Sky - 74, 73, 120
Ground / Water Puddles - 74, 73, 55, 116

I also used Gamsol to blend the clouds, and for the rain drops I used Close to My Heart Chalk marker (Z1767). Thank goodness I do have that chalk marker handy, or else I would've gone crazy if after a week I'd have to leave it unfinished a couple of days until I found myself a white marker!

Thank you so much to Kit and Clowder, without you I wouldn't have finished this, nor even come close to this finished work!
