As the guest designer for the month, I get to help introduce some new artwork available now at Clear Dollar Stamps! This adorable image is from the new Nesters digital set designed by my friend Lisa Lara!! I used Touch Twin Markers to color the base colors of the dolls, and the shelf I created for them to sit on, then added detail with Polychromos pencils.Here's a close-up on the dolls and shelf - it doesn't show well, but I did drag some texture lines into the shelf with a fine stylus.
These are the Touch markers that I used:
I wanted to give a quick tutorial on creating that wood grain look - it was really easy to do with the Touch brush marker. I started by laying down some overlapping lines of color with the chisel end of my marker. These are the colors I used in my sample:
Hope that gives you some ideas for adding detail to wood when you color! Enjoy the new release!
