Unky's colouring therapy #23 - Angel


Today's video is speeeeeed video of Angel

My FAVOURITE rubber alcohol background actually worked so well ^^
I wonder if you saw, I got 120 polychromos from Faber-castell 
I  find it is bit harder so it keeps really pointy tips 
It works really good for adding colours and do the fine details,
I am going to try on different paper/wood perhaps.

The reason why I use copic and then pencil over it,
I lay down the base colour with marker so quick. and it gives solid base to do details and shading.
with pencils, It would take so much more time to lay down the colours 
and also, markers barely damages the paper taxture also, gives very clean and even tone.
 and pencils, so much better to illustrate different textures and details.

If I share one more tip on this colouring, If I want the face stand out, 
you have to tone down on some other object around face, 
in this case, the hair beside her face. I used grey pencil to tone it down so face will pop out more.
also add some highlights with white gelpen as well. 

Hope you enjoy this video

Snow Queen by Nightsparklies - Lost Parchment #8

Snow Queen by Nightsparklies - Lost Parchment #8

 This Monday we present to you; the Snow Queen!

Who did they think they were? Calling her the snow queen? She, with the frosted eyes and the glazed heart, picking her way about them, ripping through their rows like thin ice at nightfall; when the temperature drops to that certain point and everything starts to creak. 

But that was the beauty of it, that elegant, but piercing tone of her voice; it made them listen. Their heads turning, slowly, but curiously; waiting. And then it would begin to snow, the frost creeping through the forest, the stars blazing; her eyes on fire.
