I Pike'd These For You

Yes I meant to say "Pike'd" and not picked...snicker!  It's a mothers day release and the set he has for you is super perfect!  I love this little dirty bear.  Be sure and go HERE to see the full set he has for you at a fantastic price.


How do you pick the colors you will use on a card?  This is a question I commonly get asked.  This is what i usually do.  I start by coloring the bear (everyone knows bears are brown and black.  And dirt is dirty..that goes without saying.  Next i go sort through my pattern paper for one that brings me warm fuzzies.  After i choose my pattern paper I return to coloring my image....now I can finish it off by matching my ink to the pattern paper.  i chose to accent the burgundy in the pattern paper.  As i usually get too matchy I decided to color the pants in blue.  But wait, there is no blue in my pattern paper...what to do, what to do?  I solved this by adding a blue mat.  it brought it all together.  Enjoy your coloring...I hope this helped.

Copics Used:  E31 E33 E35 E57 E77 E37 R59 R35 R46 Y15 Y38 100 C7 C3 Blender solution and rag for texture.
