How to Color Skin Tones using Copic Markers
I’m so excited to be apart of the Honey Bee Design Team. Today, I’m sharing a tutorial on How to Color Skin Tones using Copic Markers and we are using all the same colors for each one. It’s all about how much of what color you use.
I’m using this adorable Stamp Set, Welcome Baby and Celebration Box Die Set.
Skin Coloring Tutorial
1 Photo Step : Add R22 to your image for some rosy cheeks.
2 Photo Step: Then go back over with R01 to blend out the R22.
3 Photo Step: Use E13 in the areas shown. Adding more or less depending on how dark you want the skin.
4 Photo Step: Add E11 to your image based on how dark you want the skin.
5 Photo Step: Same thing with E00. You want to make sure you’re flicking in towards the center of the face.
6 Photo Step:Repeat with E000. If you’re going with a very light skin tone you will use E0000, after E000.
7 Photo Step: Then, for the next layer start with E17 in the shadowed areas.
8 Photo Step: Blend out a little with E13, depending on how light or dark you want the skin tone.
9 Photo Step: Repeat with E11.
10 Photo Step: Same thing, repeat with E00 flicking in towards the center of the face.
Need some Supplies
11 Photo Step: Still flicking towards the center of the face with E000.
12 Photo Step: Again with E0000, if you want a lighter skin tone.
13 Photo Step: Fill in the back of the mouth with W7.
14 Photo Step: Color the tongue with R37
15 Photo Step: Color the hair with colors, E30, E33 or E17, E13 or W7, W5.
Note: After I was finished I added E13 and E00 to the corners of the mouth making their cheeks look chubby. The background was created freehand using my Copic Markers, as well!
So, I decided to create a fence in this scene and have these cuties peeking over it. I love the way it came out and the simplicity of the card. Honey Bee Stamps are really so much fun to color, I’m so excited to be on their design team!
