No Line Coloring Tutorial

Pin It
 It's Wednesday.....sketch time at MFT! I thought it would be fun to do a little "no line" coloring with my copic markers. Below is a step by step process of the colors I used and at the bottom is a total supply list.
 First off, I stamped this cute L'il Pumpkin PI image in Tattered Rose Distress Ink. I colored on Neenah natural white paper.
 Add a little shape to the face, legs and arms.
 I used this color for some of my deeper shadows.
 After blending the skin tones I went back in and added the eyes, nose and mouth with my copic multiliner pen.
 These are the colors I used for the pumpkin....when I was done blending the YR families I added in some of that BV for deep shadows and shaping. It is really important when you are doing no line coloring that you establish the shape of the object.


 Here is the little stem. This E family is AWESOME...it has green properties to it.
 This is the experimental colors I used for her hair. I think I like this combo :)
I paper pieced her outfit and then added some shading using my toner greys. The little shoes too.
Last detail is the grass. You can see I used quite a few colors...this adds nice interest to the grass.









Here is the sketch so that you can play along....there are always fun prizes to be had on sketch Wednesday. Be sure to check out the MFT blog for the details and the other participating designers.

Hmm, that is a really neat technique stamping in the light colour, I will have to pick up some ink and try this myself, thanks for the idea and sample :-)
