Copic Class

January 29, 2011

Before the online class I took some classes with Jen, at Cary Table Scrapbookers (meetup.com).  If you are interested in scrapbooking or classes, it is definitely the place to be.   I don’t do a lot of the scrapbooking events (lack of time), but I do jump on some of the classes.  I guess we could blame Jen for this latest addiction!  She has brought me from my first $25.00 for markers to marker # 260 or so…. I’d say that’s past an addiction.

Copic Class Lesson 7

January 27, 2011

Lesson 7 was an extension of coloring clothing.  The design we used came from the Pixie Dust Studio (google it).  We referred to shadows but touched back on shapes.   When you see this digi, you will identify different shapes.  Here is my attempt:          Lisa’s critique:

You definately have the right idea about the light source. Your blending needs to be smoother. I can see each individual color as a ring of color on the dress. Focus your darkest color in the points of the triangles and at the bottom of the dress. If you had one more lighter or darker color this would help you as well. You are getting there:)

 

Mama’s attempt:

Lisa’s critique:  The highlight is good but, needs a darker color for the shadow or shading to make it pop. Focus your blending on the last third of your previous color to obtain more smoothness.

Copic Class Lesson 6

January 27, 2011

Lesson 6 was on coloring clothes and our first digi was soooo hard to color!  Here is my first attempt and her critique: 

The critquing: Your color choice for the yellows is great! There is very little contrast between the colors. I am not seeing a highlight in your dress. Also, your light source is from the side but, she is colored this from an overhead light source perspective. If you wanted to achieve a side light source. The right side of her dress would have more shadowing than the left side of her dress. You did a good job in placing the shadow underneath, her arms, hair, and basket:) I am guessing you over blended this. If you have time, try again, using the MFB technique and reserve your area for a highlight.
 
 
 

 

 Paula’s 2nd attempt: 

Lisa’s critique: The red one is very pretty. You are getting the shading in the rightareas just not enough of it. Love the smoothness of the blending and color gradiation.

Copic Class – Lesson 5

January 27, 2011

Lesson 5 was one of my favorite.  It was a sort of free style.  We chose a paper and stamp and matched the two .  So, the colors in the paper used was the color direction of the copic markers.  It was a lot of fun!  I even did an attempt at a challenge.  (My first challenge!)  Here is Lesson 5 attempt:

Copic Class Lesson 4

January 27, 2011
Lesson 4 involved using the light source template to figure out where the light enters in and leaves the image to know where to use your light and dark colors. It makes a lot more sense when you see her pictures and listen to her videos.  Lesson 4 Assignment:

Copic Class Lesson 3

January 27, 2011

Lesson 3 involved making and using a light source.  How does the light source affect the object with shadows and how does it affect shapes.  Check out more detail at http://simplyscrapping.ning.com/ .

Assignment 3 – We made a light source template and colored using light coming from the top.  Here is Lesson 3 :

Copic Class Lesson 2

January 26, 2011

Different methods.  Which way is best?  What works for you?  The original method or circular method, using lightest color to darkest color OR tip to tip blending, where you take the darkest and lightest color to make the middle color, OR Lisa’s (online instructor) favorite, the modified feather technique.  Lisa said,   “I developed this when I first started to color and it worked best for me. This technique is Coloring on the side of my marker.”  With Lisa’s modified feather technique, use darkest to lightest using feathering movements instead of circles.   Again, for more information, visit http://simplyscrapping.ning.com/ and sign up for her online class.  I’m not sure how long the invitation is open.  These classes are FREE and very informative!  Assignment 2  was to use the Modified Feather Technique.  I have a long way to go, but there is always a beginning!  I think her comment was this was over blended.
