Sureya Bookmark

Happy Friday everyone :)  We have a new challenge at our Copic/Promarker group on The Outlawz. The theme this week is Mardi Gras...purple, green & gold.  I had to Google this festival as I had no idea what it was all about!  As far as I know, it's not something we have in Aus. Green & Purple being my favourite colours, I loved making this project.

I made a bookmark using a Sureya drawing. I've had a hoard of these for quite a while but hadn't coloured any...was a bit scared of the manga/anime eyes lol so I kept putting off trying one out.  (They really aren't any harder than ordinary eyes now that I've tried!!)

I've coloured her with Copics and glitter pens. Her headband, gloves, gold dress band and eyeshadow have been clear Spica'd...her green bow, glove trim and boot trims have been coated with a glaze pen, as have the coloured sections of her eyes. Her skirt has been coated with SU Crystal Effects & glaze pen and her boots were embossed with Polysparkle embossing powder. She looks sooooo pretty IRL! I'm really happy with how this turned out...might have something to do with it being green & purple lol

I coloured her hair with Copics and then added some hair strands and highlight with a couple of Prismas. I wanted her hair to look spiky and sharp...I find it hard to get the exact effect with the Copic brush nib so add a little detail with the sharp pencils :)

If you click on the picture to enlarge you will see I actually managed to capture some of the gloss and sparkle this time...YAY...let's hope I can repeat the process again!

Here's a CU of the image before I put the bookmark together:

Gorgeous bookmark, Lynne! You did a fabulous job coloring this Sureya image! I'm a little intimated by her images! Have a wonderful weekend!

This is a beautifully coloured image. If you can teach me to colour a tenth as well as this, I'll be happy!

Wowza yowza you did an amazing coloring job on this image Lynne! Geez, I think I need to have you over for a visit. These Sureya images sure can be intimidating but you nailed it. I have trouble getting the hair right with Copics too. The pencil worked perfectly.
I live about an hour from New Orleans but have never been brave/stupid enough to attend Mardi Gras there. We have it here too, but it's gotten ridiculous, or I should say people have, and it's not at all like it used to be. Sad. :-(
I just can't stop looking at your image. It really is fabulous! Hugs!
