We loved the beautiful coloring Design Team member Jennifer Rustioni achieved with the recent Jenoblade release in January. Today, let's take a closer look at her designs, and learn about the coloring process from Jennifer herself. Take it away, Jennifer!
Let's start with the Sweet Little Peanut stamp set. I stamped the elephant with the balloon on Cement Gray Card Stock with the VersaMark Ink Pad, to have a super no-line effect. I started coloring it with Copic markers to have a first layer. Then, I continued to color it using pastel pencils to have a very smooth effect. I darkened the shadows and lightened the brightest parts to give a 3D effect to my subject. I also added a cast shadow to give the impression that the elephant was sitting on the paper. At last, I realized the details with a black fineliner and added the highlights with a white gel pen.
From Books & Buddies, I stamped the bunny with the book on the Cement Gray Card Stock with the VersaMark Ink Pad, to have once again a no-line effect. I started to color it with Copic markers to create a first layer. Then I went over it with pastel pencils to have a more smooth effect. I lightly drew the hole and then also colored it with pastel pencils. I realized the green garland using oil pastel, to have a different texture from the inside the hole. At last, I added some details using a black fineliner and a white gel pen.
