Check out my other newest digital stamp "Workout Girl". For a long time now, I've been meaning to do a digi stamp of a girl for darker skin tones. So here she is and I just LOVE her!!! I am really happy with how she turned out and how beautiful I finally got her skin tone. Now, I'm not an expert marker colourer or anything, as this is still very new to me. I confess, it took me about 5 tries to get these warm brown colours to perfection - perhaps it is a lack of colours in my marker collection. But, like a little scientist, I experimented and finally found the perfect colours I liked, and figured out a way to colour her without making it too blotchy looking. Kim will be doing a version too, so I am curious to see how hers turned out, and what colours she used - if she posted it this week. Pop on over and check out her blog! The Promarker colours I used for her dark skin tone was Cocoa, Raw Sienna, Coral, Amethyst, and Antique Pink for her cheeks. Sounds scary doesn't it? I used Amethyst for the really dark areas under her chin, her back, inner ear etc. I found all of these colours had to be applied a certain way and worked and then re-worked to get a nice even tone. Oh yes, I also used Maroon for her eyeshadow. This was such a fun challenge for me and I really want to do another. The image is actually 2 different versions I coloured for practise (one cropped, and one full version). I want to complete this cutie with my fitness papers using the black design patterns, that is my reason for her clothing colours. Next time I'd really like to do a purple and green combo, which I think would look so pretty with her skin tone.
Hope everyone has a great hump day! =)
