This is a method I use called a "Spotlight" technique. It can be achieved in a variety of ways, but in this case I used a rubber stamp by DeNami Designs with the dots in a circle. Once stamped, all the coloring is done within that "spotlight".
From here, I want to walk you thru my coloring using my Copics...
In addition to the palette choice, I start my coloring with the area I feel is the most likely to go "wrong". Usually that means I do the skin and hair first so that if I can't achieve the look I want, I can throw it out & start over. This way I haven't lost all the time & effort of the rest of my coloring! With this image I wanted to make sure her costume was what I envisioned.
I will have this finished soon - mounted on a card for my granddaughter. You will be able to see it at my blog - RubberMAD.
Create wildly and color with abandon!
