Copic Tutorial: How to color a face

Hi crafty friends!

There are so many ways to colour faces. Depends on what kind of image you colour and how the artist drew the face. It is a matter of taste and technique- everybody has their preference.

Du kan finne denne tutorialen på norsk HER.

For my DT assignment this month over at Copic Marker Europe I made this tutorial on how like to colour faces, using the following Copic Markers: 
E0000-E000- E11-E13- E21- E15, E93 (cheeks), B99-97-93-91 (eyes)
Image is cropped from  "arctic friends" by Saturated Canary.

Start by colouring all the skin with E0000

Draw the shadows using E11. Under the hair line, over and under the eyes, under the chin, under some of the lip. Draw nose lines.

Add deeper shadows using E13.

Blend with E11 and E21.

Blend using E000.

E93 for the cheeks. I add colour from the eyes and towards the middle of the cheeks.

Blend with E000. I only use the E000 on the outer edges of the E93.

Next I darken the shadows using E15. On the hair line and hood line, 
and under the eyes and under the lips. Not on the nose.

Blend with E11 and E21. Adding shadow on the side of the nose and lips.

And finally blending with E000.

I add colour to the eyes. I used B99-97-95-93-91. From dark to light. I leave a small dot of white for highlights.
And for the lips: E93-R20 and E04. Same thing- I leave some white highlights.



Time to colour the rest of the image. Copic colours used: 
Hair: E57-55-53-51
Jacket: BG75-72-71 (homemade)- 70- 57-53-11, W7
Cup and t-shirt: BV25-23-20, W7
Skirt and mittens: E44-43-42-41
Fur: W7-3-00
Background. B60, W000, blender

Here's my finished project: 

I used papers by Maja Design and sentiments by Papirdesign. 
Some Frantage- shabby white around the image. 

Hope you like my tutorial.

Wishing you a colourful day!
