Woodland Wisp 'Wispy'

Hello, fellow colorists.  Julie O here today from Muddy Paws & Inky Fingers.  I have a most delightful image to share with you today, and a couple of tips, too.

First, the finished project, using Woodland Wisp 'Wispy':



I colored Woodland Wisp "Wispy" with Copic markers, and here is how I did it.

First, skin and hair.  I wanted her skin to be very fair, since I was making her a redhead.
Skin tone colors used were: E000, E00, E21, E34, R20, lips R21, R22
Hair -- YR14, YR27, E99


I used my favorite yellow combination on the flower.  Here's a step-by-step of the flower:

Y11 -- I start with the lightest color to saturate the area.

E18 -- then, I switch to the darkest color, using just a bit for shading.

E15 -- I add in the next darkest color, adding more shading.

Y17 -- here comes the darkest yellow shade.  I use quite a bit of this.

Y15 -- Here's the final hello, the midtone. I colored the middle of the flower in this step, too.

Now, it's time to go over the whole flower again with Y11, blending it all thoroughly.   Flower completed, and several more flowers on her shoulders are colored also.

All that's left is her dress, hair ribbons, and the ground she is standing on...

Flower stem -- G20, G21, G24, G28
Dress ruffle -- G20, G21, G82, G94, G99
Dress & Hair ribbons -- B12, B24, B28, B29, B99
Scarf -- R22, R24, R27, R29, R39, R59
Grass -- YG03, YG11, YG13, YG17
Flowers in grass -- YR12, YR14

Here she is, made into a card:
