I needed to colour an image today for an upcoming project (so yes you get a sneak peek. heehee) and I had the idea to just video the whole process and see how it turned out. Most of my previous videos have me rushing my colouring to beat the time so you don’t really get to see my natural colouring style.
So a 1 1/2 hours later it was rather obvious you wouldn’t want to sit around watching every detail so I decided to speed up the process and managed to cut it down to 20 minutes across two videos.
The image is ‘Little Christmas Angel’ illustrated by Crissy Armstrong. I thought this would be a great image to show you my process of colouring folds. I have attempted to narrate over the top but sometimes got the colours wrong.
Unfortunately the video camera completely over-saturated the reds in the image however at the end of the second video I show a scanned version where the colours are closer to real life.
I would love your feedback on this style of video and if you like it I will be happy to do more like this. Would prefer not having to talk though. heehee 🙂
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you are having a gorgeous weekend.
Hugs and take care
