Blue fighting Elf – coloured


Fighting Elf. Copic Markers and Coloured Pencils. Ulla Hennig, June 2012

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!

About Ulla Hennig

I live and work in Berlin. Taking photos is one of my hobbies, and writing is one of my hobbies, too. So I decided not only to show some of my pictures here but also present some of the thought which came wth the pictures.
