Casey Digital Stamp

Good afternoon,
Hope you all had a wonderful and creative weekend. Ours was filled with family time, a bit of toy shopping, and then topped off with a huge birthday party for my little guy. (Even though I started preparing weeks ago I still felt rushed, lol) It was a fantastic day.

***

Long after my house became quite and everyone had fallen asleep; I found myself still to full of energy to rest. So, I pulled out all of my art supplies and decided to have some creative me time.
 I find it amazing how when I'm happy my illustrations come together so quickly. No fuss, no stress, just fun expression. This is my favorite kind of art. 

Well this was one of those days. It felt like within minutes I had a rough sketch that I just loved and couldn't wait to polish up.

Once I had Casey inked I looked at my marker case and had a realization. I'm very bad about just reaching in and grabbing random markers. I don't plan out which ones will blend well together, have favorite combos, or anything special. I just play around until I'm happy with how my picture looks. I'm pretty content with this technique and I don't really plan to change it but I am going to try to at least write down the colors that I've used. That way if someone is interested in duplicating a color, I have a list to share. I've tried this a few times before, and I love sharing, I just don't always think about it when I'm coloring.

So here's my list:
(all Copics this time)

skin- E21, E51, E50  R01, R00
shirt, hat, boots- YR21, YR30, Y32, Y21
jeans- BG70, B41, B21, B93
hair- E35, E33, E53

  7. Thank you Anna for Casey. She is lovely. I know what you mean with the colouring. Unless I leave the markers out on the desk when I'm colouring I have no idea what I've used either! Thanks for the list but understand when it isn't there as I'm the same.
