I'm so excited to post my fourth and final project for the Simply B stamps colourist tryout! (details here)
This is Simply's B's Ohio State Cheerleader. I had a little trouble with the hair but I think I recovered ok. It's hard to flick around curves!
Today I'm back with the second of four images in my tryout to be a Simply B colourist on the Simply B blog. This is Arkansas Amy. I won't lie, I have noooo idea what Arkansas has to do with gems! I'm a Canadian girl! lol. But actually I found those gems pretty hard to colour. All those angles, I couldn't figure out the light source.
I added a Spica pen to make the gems glitter, but it doesn't show in the picture.
There's a colouring contest going on over on the Simply B blog and I've decided to enter. Betty has released four new Betty's representing US States. The winner will be the official colourist for the remaining States that are released. Exciting, huh?
My first of the four is Maine Mermaid. Thanks to my new hex chart I was able to come up with some new combos I'm really happy with!
Have you Copic lovers seen this tool?!?!? MIND BLOWN!
I have always used the standard copic chart. But I don't find it too useful in creating new colour combinations. This amazing chart groups by colour instead of numerical value. It'll make it so much easier to create combos now!
You can purchase the chart here for $5.99 US. It comes as a download with one file blank to colour, and the other pre-coloured. There's a second page just for the greys. I've added my own watermark just to protect the original owner, Sandy Allnock's copyrights.
I spent most of the day by the pool, but got some colouring in too. Also, for the first time, I used PicMonkey to add a background to my colouring. I always feel it looks so plain without being on a card - this certainly helped!

I had originally coloured it orange, so that's why the hue is a bit off
