New Video – Colouring Folds & Creases!

Hi Everyone,

I don’t have a project per se to share, however I do have VIDEOS! That’s right, I succumbed to the pressure and in the wee hours of this morning I began colouring Edwin with his vest and pants again to show you just how I did it. 🙂

If you have stumbled upon this post and have no idea what I am talking about – Click Here to See my card with Edwin.

I am a little tired so I am not going to waffle on in my typing. You can just sit back and listen to me blabber away as I colour. heehee

I am pretty sure it will get boring so feel free to pause, jump forward and attempt to find any juicy bits of info you can sneak away with. Oh and if you are practising your fold and creases etc I would like to see the results! Pwetty pwease!

I have broken it up into 3 videos.

Colouring Edwins Face & Hands

Colouring Edwins Vest

Colouring Edwins Pants

If you can’t play these videos just head on over to my Youtube Channel

If you make it through all three videos – Congratulations! heehee

Please let me know what you think and if I get the thumbs up I will try to make more on a bit more of a regular basis.
Give me some ideas of what you would like to see!!

Thanks for stopping by, I am trying to get a project finished to share with you soon.

Big Squeezes

    So pleased i am not the only one who doesnt like their accent. Great tut and so pleased you shared your knowledge with us humble crafters. Is that a parrot in the background that we keep hearing, you have had him so long you dont even notice, he he. And you do the same thing as me when coloring, we constantly swivel the marker in between our fingers, isnt that strange. I love your work and just want you to know that you are greatly admired. TFS

    Oh how can I thank you for these tremendous tutorials?
    Your colouring is out of this world!!!!!!!
    You can’t begin to know how great you are.
    My one wish was that you stayed with your camera CLOSER the whole time. It was hard to see exactly how you were doing those tiny places with it so far away.
    I will be looking at my images far more closely now and trying your way – though I know I will never be able to colour as you do.
    THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!

    WOWZER Zoe, thanks for sharing your knowledge. I thoroughly enjoyed watching the videos, you are just so hugely talented! I’ve always admired your work tremendously, maybe one day when I’m big I’ll be able to colour like you rofl! Lotsa luv, hugs xxxx

    Awesome video. I am going to practice my creases. Thank you so much for making and sharing. Once again you have inspired me to go beyond! Hugs Bonnie

    Zoe: I think with lots of practice I could COPY your coloring, using your shadowing – I even have that image. I think I’m good enough for that. What I’m not good enough for is visualizing in my head, the highlights, folds and creases on my own. You can just look at the image and you seem to know where these things are. I’m not sure I’ll ever be good enough to look at a flat image and see a 3D colored image. I love your videos – please keep them coming, and I love your accent. Also, how do you keep your nails so beautiful? Mine are always colored and not with nail polish – lol. Big Hugs….

    Oh Zoe!!!! The videos were fabulous and your accent to. Actually, I hardly noticed it. But nice to put a voice to the creator! Love your work…and love the eye you have for where the pleats and folds should go. So talented you are. My favorite though, love that your copics are just as mucked up as mine! LOL I read that you should take a swab and some alcohol and clean them up…but I like how they look used…makes me feel as though I got my moneys worth! ;-))
    Hugs,

    HUGE thanks, Zoe for putting this on a tutorial for us! You did an excellent, EXCELLENT job! This is going into my bookmarks for sure! So now off to practice, practice, practice! You are a love for taking the time to do this for us out there in crafter’s land – the humble peons!

    BTW, I could listen to your accent all day long and never get tired of it. I love Paola’s accent too!

    Hugs to you,
    Barb (in twangy Texas! But I have a Canadian accent!)

    Once again Zoe you’ve given us 3 Dimensional work on a flat surface. Your videos are inspirational and I get so much encouragement and knowledge from them. No one does pleats and creases like you. You are in a class of your own, hey what’s wrong with your accent,nothing, I’ve got one too. It would be a dull old world if we all sounded the same. Keep up the fabulous work and the great videos. I could listen to you all day. Well my hubby says I do anyway!
    Lots of hugs

    Hi Zoe!
    Awesome video’s. I don’t use copic’s but they are still so good for me to learn creases and folds with my distress inks.Well fingers crossed anyway.
    Hugs Maz

    I also just found the video tutorials! I will definitely be watching all 3! Think about doing one on how you colored the green dress on Balloon Tilda! That is my challenge to you. Just kidding as I know you are busy but think about it. I thought I might enter the red challenge but I just can’t get the work together. Families of colors and right, using Copic paper. Started with dark and then saw tip for starting light and it just isn’t jiving for me. I was hoping to enter the RED challenge but I am not sure that I can “get it” on time. Any coloring with Copic videos would be great but think about Balloon Tilda again.

    Watched all three videos between 3:30 and 4:00 am. I couldn’t go to bed until I had watched them. Your sense of highlighting is astronomical. I would only ask that you put a pop up on the screen when you switch colors and also make PDF versions so we can read whenever we want and put in a book of “learning”. Do more on blending of reds and RV colors and yellows and greens and … okay, anything! They are fabulous!

    Thanks so much for these great videos. I am just starting out with copics & they are extremely helpful

    hello, my name is Muriel and I live in Belgium Brussels more precisely
    I discovered the Copics two years ago ….. I tried to study without finding people who used them already in Belgoique lescopics are rare …. you have to often research in Holland and power controlling the united states ….. but this is not always easy and it’s sad ….
    But in recent days thanks to Suzanne J Dean …. I was able to take courses via the net ….. and yet you go laugh but my English is very “beginner” thank you google for translations of text and thank you to Suzanne J Dean to have taken courses ….. pdf
    after this long speech, I also wanted to thank you because you say a thousand thanks to you my sad days ….( due to major health problems) are becoming more informed because I just looked at your site your explicatiions, your videos and although I do not understand your verbal explanations the videos are superb and full of surprises and even emotions …. I hope someday I get the same level as you and I could give what I ”ll have learned that that would be interested to learn the art and use Copics …..
    Thank you and thank you for the sunshine you bring to my sad days and nights …..
    the pleasure to read ……

    Zoe, very grateful for such a detailed master class was very interesting to watch, as embodied in the reality of such beauty (and the speed with which this is done;). The process of creating three-dimensionality by folds and the correct phase coloring. As a designer, is working every single detail of dress.
    Delightfully, Zoe! For the beginner, many initially unknown, but here everything is clear . . . of course still much we would like to see and learn. Once again, thank Zoe for these videos.

    Thanks so much for the videos!! I now what I’m doing today, lol. My wish is to color like you. Your videos were awesome in explaining the details that I don’t usually color. Hope to now. Now I can see why it takes so long to crete one image. They are truly a masterpiece. Thanks so much for sharing.

    Hi Zoe,

    WOAH! just found your tutorials and they are just mindblowing. I thought my “colouring in” wasn’t too bad until I saw your videos. Now I can see how much more practice I need. I shall be using these easy to follow videos to try and improve. Your artwork is awesome! Thank you for taking the time to help us mere mortals.

    Zoe – I have watched this video at least a dozen times and I am still in awe of how easy you make it seem. Absolutely fabulous! I’m still trying to get my creases right and just can’t seem to master it. I understand the “bumps” and highlights. However, I’m struggling with the actual shape of the crease when joing one side to another. I think I’m joining too much of the crease. If you could give me some pointers i would be so grateful. BTW – more videos are definitely desired!

    Zoe….I love, love, love your coloring technique! It is different than what I have seen before but it is spectacular. I am going to use your videos to get a better handle on how to use my copic markers for blending. Thank you so very much for all the wonderful videos. Hugs, Rhonda (USA)
