Mic portrait challenge

Hey there everyone....  I am so glad you popped into visit me...

How are you all getting along with the Portait Challenge over at Make it Colourful the girls have done some amazing work...
I have  been testing out some new pencils I bought they are  Staedtler Ego soft... really pencils a little more like Polychromos ones rather then Prismacolour...

It didn't turn out too bad I managed to get a little more tone and shape into their faces, it's all practise.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I can't wiat to see your work .
Big hugs for now

I had a lot of fun with this and used a lots of colours I wouldn't have normally used.. there are lots of things I need to improve on but using Zoe's fantastic Colouring Faces tutorial Ebook it's going to be much easier.
Well that's all for the Mo, I have lots more things coming up.

MiC -May Colouring Challenge - Portraits

Hi there everyone... wow this next challenge has soon come around...It absolutley scared the pants off me to start with, untill Zoe came up with this amazing tutorial book she has done...

This challenge is portraits and we would like you to do a  facial close - up and add detail and features , such as texture , tone and highlights.

I have used the gorgeous Lili Faye fairy

This is the first time I have done anything like this and I will be trying again as I can see some area's to improve on, but it's good to have a challenge...

I have used Prisma Pencils for the colouring. I think  they could do with  a good sharpen though and  then I could get few more crisp lines and more finer detail, but that's all in the challenge of learning something new...

I copied the freckles on my oldest daughters face, she sat there for ages bless her... I had to try and get them uniformally random, if you know what I

This was such a fab challenge Zoe set us and I can't wait to try it out on some other images.
Visit the Make it Colourful blog and take a peek at what the awesome DT Gals have done.

Well I have another portrait to post shortly and loads of other Mic Gal stuff too.
Thank you so much for sdtopping by and taking a peek.

Lucy Loo- - The East Wind

Hi crafty peeps...
I just wanted to share my Lucy Loo colouring from The East Wind, they have a facebook challenge at the monent and they would like you to colour on Kraft paper...

This wasn't my usual kraft card, this one was a little too shiny which make it difficult to layer the colour, so it's not as bright as I would like it to be...

The image is coloured with -  Ball point pens
the skin is coloured with - Prisma Pencils

Thank you for taking a peek
