Tutorial Tuesday: Goth Artist Arielle. Using Colored Pencils to Define Your Alcohol Marker artwork.


It's Tutorial Tuesday!

This week we are coloring Goth Artist Arielle. For this tutorial, we're going to use colored pencils to neaten up and define our alcohol marker artwork.

When you're coloring small (which I know most of my cardmaking friends do), in order to get those tiny details, it's nice to have something with a very fine point. For this I like to use a very sharp colored pencil. I primarily use Prismacolor pencils but Faber-Castell Polychromos would work even better for this specific technique - however, any colored pencil with a super sharp point will work. You might even get away with Crayola colored pencils, though you may need to go over your lines an additional time or two to get the color to show very well. The important thing is that you use your eyeballs to match the colors in the palette to the colors you have in your toolbox =)

 Now, onto the tutorial...

Grab Goth Artist Arielle to color yourself here:

Keep in mind...

You don't have to use the same brand/tools that I'm using to follow along. Just use your color chart to match what you have to my colors below. Then create your own palette from that, labeling your colors with the Copic codes & Prismacolor names below so you can follow along with the video. Easy peasy =)

Feel free to pin the image below to your Pinterest board so you can come back to the tutorial later :)

Have a Great Week!
