Sugar Nellie - Artistic Godess

Morning folks!  I am happy to share with you another of the Simply Sassy gals that Sugar Nellie now has for sale! Warning...I do have lots of pics of this one! 

This lady is called 'Artistic Goddess'. I do love her specks and awesome hair!  She is coloured with prismas entirely. The papers are all from Basic Grey 'Sugar Rush' pad. I just used the unpatterned pages from the back of the pad. I wanted to keep the papers fairly plain as the image has lots of detail.

I added a little pull out tag from behind the image and found this perfect sentiment! It came from a set of Kid's Quotes from Inkadinkadoo (I think!). I hand drew a little rainbow so don't look too closely :)

 
I have been asked a few questions about colouring with prismas....so I thought when I can I will try and give some little tips to help beginners!

Tip#1 - when colouring an image such as this one with very small details, use your lightest colour to blend in your shading. So for example when colouring the hair I used 3 shades of brown: Beige, Light Umber and Dark Umber. I did not use mineral spirits to blend in the shading but just took the beige pencil to blend in the lines.  


Pencils unlike copics do not leave a 'perfect' finish. You can see some of the lines and shading..but this is all part of the charm of a pencil coloured image in my opinion! I do love copics too but also love the soft finish of the pencils...and they are very forgiving....mistakes can be easily rectified!

Anyway, Sugar Nellie has so much new rubber to show in the next few weeks.  My table has lots of  brand new uninked images ready to be made into cards:))) Better stop chatting and get cracking then!

Back soon!

I just drank in your info about the pencils - I shall try this blending as I had no idea about it. I too love the softness of the pencils & find I'm less tense about using them than when attempting the Copics. I love your colours with this & that rainbow is glorious, not until I read your post did I realise you'd drawn it, thought it was printed.
