TK Guardian Castle (Copic Version)

Saturday, April 3,2010

This morning I finished up the Copic Marker Version of the "Guadian Castle". You will see the difference right away. The Copic version is much more vibrant than the Prismacolor pencil version.

Copic Tidbit:

When coloring a very detailed stamp such as this, takes a little different technique. The trick to it is that you are layering colors, and then blending the darker color with the lighter maker color in a brush pull stroke. No circles, because they are very small area that you are working with.

It is much faster with the Copic. It took me longer to pick out the colors than it did to color the image. It only took me a half hour to finish the image. The image was stamped on Cryogen paper, which adds a nice sparkle.

It's up to you which version you prefer. I would trend to pick the Copic version because of it vibrancy.

I will try to work on the Derwent Inktense watercolor version, but seeing that it is Easter Sunday, my understanding wife may nix that.

Hope you enjoy the Copic version. Let me know by you comments which you prefer.

Have a GREAT DAY!!!

    Absolutely Beautiful, Bob. It's hard to say
    which one I like the best. They both are
    beautiful in their own way.

    Bob - both cards are awesome! I tend to lean toward the copic, it seems far more intense, yet I like the lightness of the pencils. Anxious to see with the other pencils - I'm sure it will be just as intense and the earlier two - your work is just beautiful. Thank you for sharing. Kerry P.
