I'm Getting a Little Sketchy!

I needed to do something for ME...yes, today it all about me...me...me!  I drew, I Colored, I accomplished what I was aiming for.  These are some Chilis from my garden that had sat in the Arizona sun and dried up.



A few things I have learned.  When your dealing with a pencil sketch, start with the background first.  Secondly you CAN use any paper you have sitting on your desk...it doesn't have to be "Copic compatible".  The paper I used (thank you Marianne) is All In One printer paper.  It tuned out so cool and was so easy to blend.  This paper takes a bit of practice as it soaks up ink fast and spreads.  Also note I am not completely happy with my shadows...but I am over it and moving on.


Copics Used:  R59 R39 R46 R14 R35 R08
YR24 YR15 YR14 YR18 YR68 Y19 Y26
E08 E87 E42 E43 E44 E47 E55 E31 E81

Fabulous! You have nothing to apologize for [w/regard to shadowing]. These chili's look great and so does that wood : )

This is fabulous! I'm looking at the original and you've got the table colors spot on. I like the added shadows you did and making them slightly blue/purple makes them interesting. Love it! :D
