Colouring with Coloured Pencils

January 25th, 2015 - Art, Cards, Colouring




Today I coloured an image of an alien girl with coloured pencils. To create a 3D effect I used two shades of each colour. I started out with the lightest one pressing very lightly and colouring the whole area. Next I go in with the darker shade pressing to get the full colour. Once I have done that I go in with the lighter shade pressing harder to blend out the darker one.
