A Couple Coloring Videos for you!

I've had some requests to do coloring videos so I finally took the plunge yesterday when I colored Cheeky Kitty digital stamp available at The Greeting Farm. Now, I have to admit, I have shied away from doing these b/c I feel like there are plenty of copic coloring tutorials out there but I suppose add my own spin to it. ;) Thanks to my friends who have encouraged me and been so supportive. The main thing I can stress is you can watch video after video on "how to" color, but you just gotta dig in and practice on your own. Just have fun with it - try new things - color until you are happy. :D

So, here you go. The first video is a skin tone coloring - my most used skin tone combo using E0000, E000, E00, E11, R22, R20, R01. In this video I had my tripod pretty high and I guess I tend to whisper when I'm talking to an empty room, LOL, so I'm going to work on that for future videos. 

The second video I'm coloring her hair using a fabulous red color combination YR04, YR07, YR09, R29 which I first tried out while coloring with Angela of Inky Button. You may remember I had to go out and buy YR09 that week so I could recreate it whenever I liked. I do move the camera about 3 mins into the video but my hand is sorely in the way a lot. Gotta figure out how to fix that since that is how I hold my markers. LOL 

Hope you enjoyed them! I'm working on editing the last video in which I color her outfit black. I'll be back later today or tomorrow to post that one. If you'd like to keep up with all videos I post, I'd love to have you subscribe to my YouTube channel!

That's it for me for now. 

Have a colorful day!
