Amazing Hop!! ** Copic Color Guide, Level 3 - People



Good morning and welcome to a very special blog hop!  I am excited to announce my participation and publication in the new Copic Coloring Guide, Level 3: People!
Authors Colleen Schaan and Marianne Walker have partnered up again with the team at Annie’s and some of the most talented artists and designers in the industry to bring you a quality publication packed full of techniques, theory, tutorials, and inspiration.  The 64-page book is the next step in the Coloring Guide series, offering information and educational material for crafters of all skill levels.

From the how and why behind picking colors and coloring skin to the tips and techniques for coloring hair to the helpful hints on how to create realistic looking clothing and fabric, this book presents information in an easy-to-follow format.
An included CD contains all of the hand-drawn images used in the tutorial section of the book, along with the assembly instructions for all of the projects, and a number of blank reference charts.

Each participating designer is hopping today to give you a peak at their favorite project from the book - and a chance to WIN your own autographed copy! 

I actually was blessed with 3 of my cards being accepted this time.  I am incredibly honored!!

Here is the one I chose to show you.  Titled "Succeed", The image is by Mo Manning.  I wanted to show in this card how to color skin as well as making a textured background.  I really hope you enjoy all the information they have put in the book on each page, as much as i enjoyed creating for the book.

To help kick off the celebration of the new book... each designer on the hop is giving away an autographed copy of the book...signed not only by Colleen and Marianne, but by the individual designer who's blog you are commenting on!  Please comment on this post for your chance to win your copy of mine!  Commenting will be closed October 26th and I will announce the winner from my blog the following day.  You will have 1 week to claim your beautiful book by emailing me your mailing address to jennifer@doveartstudios.com.  Other winners will be announced on the individual designer's blog.
