Blue fighting Elf – coloured
This is the coloured version of the lineart you can see here. First I put down the colour with my Copic Ciao markers, then I added more detail and shading with my coloured pencils. In the end I went over these parts of the painting with a colourless blender marker.
Today I went to a drugstore and bought a small bottle of Isopropyl alcohol. I had read a lot of articles and watched some videos on Youtube about the use of solvents and coloured pencils and wanted to do some experiments myself. Of course I had to try it out as soon as I arrived at home. I applied the alcohol with a q-tip on a square I had first coloured with a marker and then shaded with a coloured pencil, and it seems to work. But the experiments have just begun. Maybe I can tell you more in my next blog post.
Oh, and by the way – I’ve got a new modem which is working fine!
