New Digital Stamps: Gabbie Butterfly Fae & Bella Peace, Love & Happiness

New Digital Stamps: Gabbie Butterfly Fae & Bella Peace, Love & Happiness

posted in: Creativity, DT Inspiration, News | 35

It has been a busy week!

Which I’m sure it has also been for many, being so close to Christmas, and the start of Hanukkah recently as well as all the many seasonal celebrations at this time of year. Along with the holiday busy-ness, my eldest son moved back in after a little setback in his adventure out into the world as an adult. I am happy to have him home but it has meant moving my schedule around. I just finished coloring Gabbie Butterfly Fae and usually I try to have them colored a few days before, if not a week or two before. In any case, I had a lot of fun coloring her and I know you will too!

 

Tips, Tricks & Color Palettes

I thought I would make it easier for you to hang on to these color palettes by putting them into images you can pin to your color palettes board on Pinterest. You are welcomed to share these on your blog or social medias =) Here is my Pinterest board for color palettes in case you’re interested.

If you have Promarkers instead of Copics, I found a handy color comparison tool that you can use to convert these colors to their Promarker equivalents. I haven’t found anything similar for Spectrum Noir markers just yet but if you know of one -please- comment below with the URL. It would be wonderful if everyone could use these color palettes.

Gabbie Butterfly Fae

Gabbie is one with the butterflies in this enchanting image. Gabbie Butterfly Fae comes with a wingless version as well =) I was pretty bummed that my W7 marker started running out of ink as I was coloring her so a lot of the black areas in this image are actually black colored pencil.

TIP: Don’t be afraid to play with different mediums in a single image. If you love to color with markers, keep colored pencils nearby for fine details and adding texture. Stabilo pens are also pretty handy for this but I generally go to my colored pencils for itty bitty stuff. Although I use Prismacolor colored pencils in my colored pencil artwork, I really like the hardness of the Faber-Castell Polychromos so I keep several black polychromos handy for detailing and refining outlines.

Bella Love, Peace & Happiness

 

Bella Love, Peace & Happiness Copics Color Palette by Amanda S Byron www.FaeryInk.com

TIP: Use a soft graphite pencil for cast shadows ‘behind’ your main image. In the video below you can see where I’ve laid down some shadows around my image with a graphite pencil and then smudged it with my finger. I am using a 4b but this is very possible to do with your standard 2b graphite pencils (like you probably had to use for testing in school if you are near to my age). If you don’t want to get graphite on your fingers, use a tortillion, cotton ball or q-tip to spread the graphite around.
