Unky's Colouring Therapy Season2 -'Underwater background'2 - Aurora 'swim with betty'

Hi Ladies, Today I wanted to share another video colouring underwater scene background.
I hope you enjoy the video! 
I break down a little explanation step by step for you

First the Digi I used.
Aurora 'Swim with Betty'


BG10, BG13, BG15, B21, B23, B26, B41, E00

I used aqua blue for the surface of the water, and Cobalt blue for the deep far end. I think whatever blue you use, lighter on the surface of the water, then it goes darker in the middle. then lighter in the bottom of the sea. I did not go crazy to blend out the colours. Just smooth enough.


BLENDER INK (or Rubbing Alcohol )

Surface of the ocean, I dropped few blender refill to create beautiful organic shapes. Normally  I use rubbing Alcohol and It works the same and much more economical.



On the bottom part, I drew out water shadows with blender. It is better if you make it all different and random shapes. Larger shapes on the bottom and gets smaller as it goes to the middle part. 


Ecoline Watercolour ink 

Create some highlights on the surface of the water, sunshine shinning through the water. 


BLENDER (or Rubbing Alcohol +Brush )

Create Sunshine with blender. Smaller and whiter on top, it gets larger and fade out on the bottom. 


Ecoline Watercolour ink 

Create some highlights on the Bottom ocean.  

See you on the next video!

Unky's Colouring Therapy Season2 - Episode 7 - Underwater background 1 'Mermaid Call'

Hello there! , It has been a while! 
It has been a wonderful summer so far and so much more to come.
I just love play with water and watching what water create. It is just magical.

If I explain a little bit of process what I went through.

First I lay out and dropping some copic refil colours. 
different colours in this case. and I like mixing colours.
then I went with colour pencil adding more deep colour. you could totally do it with 
darker copic. I just prefer to use colorpencil and pigment. then I realized that I erased some parts that I made it too defined and some lights that shines through the water. ( never afraid to make mistakes :P)

I use rubbing alcohol or blender to create water surface shapes It can be more lose shapes. In my case I kind of did more of diamond shapes all over. Just to remember it has to be Biger on the top ( considering it is closer to us ) to smaller as it goes down (far). 

Finally define whiter with white colour pencil whiter from top and fade off as it goes down.
then little more highlight is added with white water based ink and shinny dots. 

Always feel free to ask any questions. I am happy to answer for free! :)

Unky's Colouring Therapy Season2 - Episode 6 -'Fung la'

This image is I have released on May 1st as a freebie!
the model of the image is one of my good friend's girlfriend. she is fashion model in Vietnam.
I follow her on instagram and she has really pretty face and especially with big eyes and full lips. :)
sometimes when I like the sketch it looks so different because I usually add shadows on the sketch and without it, it just look different. 

I used high quality watercolor paper. I think it is hot pressed watercolour paper. but I was gifted to me so I can't tell exactly what brand and how many gram and so on. However it is a good quality paper and I like how it takes copics and colour pencil. and yes, quality of paper does effect pigment especially, when you add layers of colour pencils, in my opinion. 

Colouring tips
So I started with adding base tone. I usually choose something toned down colour such as a grey or dark coral.. I used E04 which looked like Dark coral to me.  I usually go kind of loose when I fill up tones with copics and I think It gives me a good speed and helps looking at the piece as whole. 

It is nice to have a reference photos, I usually have few fashion magazines near my art table. It is very handy to look through for the face. once I find the one picture that I like, I sort of stick with it and try not to look at too many photos.

Touching up. and finish.
I normally use white ink or gelpen to highlight some blings and sparkles.
I like the glossy look and how it stands out. and on this one, I added some lose hair around with black pencil. 

OKAY, Hope you enjoyed the video!
again, I appreciate the face that you came to visit here and watch it. 
The connection means a lot to me.

Hair Heaven Colouring book test vol. 1 : COPIC

Yes it is done! finally, 
And This 21st image 'TheEastWind Witchery'
It was my lifetime dream to have a Witchery.... home grown herb tinctures and selling colouring therapy books? How fun it would be right? that is how I came up with this image.

So I tried with copics and copic only.
and I was so worried cause the papers from my book is pretty thin.
and I saw many nasty complaints from same publisher's colouring book.
cause this one have pretty much one option for any book.
I'd say it is not impossible! I actually would say it is totally enjoyable. 
Only thing is there are lots, lots of hair on this image and I did get neck pain sitting and look down for long time. :) 

Copics I used. 

That white pen is Sakura gellpen for highlight.

Paper is thin so I put 3 Kraft paper card stock 
just to be sure there are no damage on next page

Close up shot here. :) 

Little tip I wanted to share when I colour.
I always keep in mind when I paint and colour.
that to have a focal point. most of the image 
yes it is girl's face and hair around face.
more vivid colour and more detail is used.
It makes the end result more interesting and dynamic. 


I am working on second book now in Korean theme.
:) lots of hanbok Korean dress with girly images 
I have sketched and working on it. 

Thanks for checking out.

Hair Heaven /UTC Colouring book Vol.1 - Interior Tour -

So, finally I got my proof. 
and It looked fine. so I decide to make it available everywhere.

30 artworks on the book. 

I picked out 30 images that fit best to Hair Heaven,
you can look at the video what images are on the book.

The paper is 60g white paper.

This topic was the biggest set back for me to release through createspace.
However as I spent a lot of time checking other companies, 
and the price point goes way too high. just to print, it starts from 10+ dollars. 
I will keep looking for improvement of better quality paper.
I'd say, it is not ideal for copic markers. 
I suggest photocopy the image on your favourite paper in that case.
However I will make follow up videos 
try on copics and different mediums as well. 


It is Not available in digital form.

Most of the images are available in digital form on TheEastWind Etsy shop 
Digital stamps are 'Original' file of the images that is on this book.
It is hand sketched > inked on computer (digitalized) with 300 dpi resolution.
which is original file that I vectorized for this book.
 I hope you understand. 


The book is 11$ everywhere. However, 

You can grab this today with 3$ Off using couponcode: FXQ3E2PV 

Here on Createspace : https://goo.gl/jxnmOc

Coupon doesnt work on Amazon. I guess I can't make couponcode for amazon
