Hello fellow bloggers, and today means my little blog has been going for a month already. Can't believe it's 4 weeks now, time has gone so quickly. I must say, blogland does seem less vast and daunting now that I've found some old friends about the place and been found by other ones.
Anyway, having said in my last post that I hardly ever make male cards......here is one! This is the first time I used this fella, he seems a bit more grown-up than Edwin. It's my card for the Copic Creations challenge, which this fortnight is about Light Source - you have to identify where your light is coming from and colour up accordingly. On this image, I have made the light come from in front and to the right of the viewer, and I thought I'd make it even more challenging by placing my chap near a wall to make different shadows. I hasten to add this was an experiment as his shadow seems to belong to someone very much fatter! He's coloured in Copics, and this was my first attempt at using greys to shade the image - I did this because the only colour I had which matched the red in the backing paper was an R46 with no other R40's to use to highlight or shade, so I needed to find a way to create depth in his T-shirt with a single colour. I quite like the effect of using greys, the deep shadows appeal to me for some reason, and I used them on the jeans and on the beer glass too. Shading on the skin and wall/floor has been done with related colours rather than greys. Hope you like him.
