Laces and Umbrella - Colour Pencils

in drawing •  6 months ago

Hi hi~

A while ago, @zeroooc suggested that I try colour pencils to add some colours to my pieces and I finally got my hands on some ! Well............ more like I found some at a friend's place and I asked if I could have them and she said sure, and so I have like... 7 colours XD (red, purple, yellow, cream, green, brown and blue). Seven is enough to work with! Right? :D

So I rushed home and I took out my old sketchy book where I've done some inky pieces for last year's Inktober and I thought I'd try to colour one of 'em and I chose the Laces and Umbrella piece :> So here's the finished result \o/

Annnnnnnd, here's the steps piccars:

Step 1: Cream for the skin~

Step 2: Purple for the skirt!

Step 3: Blue, blue sky~

Step 4: Yellow hat and shawl :D

Step 5: Red flowers, red top and red umbrella!

These colour pencils do not really smudge or blend :( But I think I like colour pencils better than the Fibro Aquarelle markers that I tried colouring with, previously. They are easier to control :D

Needs more practice with these colourly stuff~ Maybe I'll try watercolour next~ bahaha~

Ah, this is soooo wonderful. I would love to meet you in person one day, @veryspider, I simply adore your artistic style and would love to get to know the person behind those beauties.
This beautiful artwork brings to my mind one of my most favourite movies of all time, Howl's Moving Castle and the character called Sophie. Those pencils look very nice on paper. I also saw your other artwork, and I must say that in my opinion the watercolour markers worked splendid, your Fairy and Butterflies came out very lively, smooth and beautifully shaded. I hope to get to use watercolour markers myself one day.

I crave for more of your colourful art!
Love,
Klaudia

Would be fabs to meet up with Klaudia one day, for sure :> :> :>

I dont really remember Howl's Moving Castle, cuz I haven't seen it lately, but I remember liking it a lot so thank you so much for compliments <3 <3 <3

Watercolour markers are kinda ... startling to use cuz they make really bold lines, and I was a bit shocked XD I prefer these colour pencils~ They are soft and not as stark :> But, the watercolour markers were fun, and I hope you can get to play with some, Klaudia !

Thank you for kind comments, as always <3

OMG, @veryspider, it came out so beautiful! <3<3<3

Thank you so much, Shiny! We can even do a challenge just for fun - Howl's Moving Castle Fanart - hehe, you can be so inspiring, dear! ^.^

Wow, this came out really nice. She looks like a very proper young lady, but not a snob, like she definitely frowns upon that sort of thing. :)

Aaaaaw! I LOVE your style and the colours! What a fantastic artwork! Very exppressive, yet gentle and dreamy. You definately should do some illustrations for books, comics, magazines and much more, you are really absolutely talented! <3

A very, very big compliment! <3

Perfect! Your line work is stunning, more like filigree on metal than ink on paper. Another instant veryspider classic ☺
