I got challenged. Big time. I am a sucker for challenges. Elin wanted me to colour up a specific Mo Manning image, in no-lines. Christmas Fairy Holly. Elin is on the Mo’s Digital Pencil design team and told me she’d never seen this particular image coloured with no lines. No pressure, then… right…
I had tried no-lines twice before. I stayed well clear of anything that resembled complicated, and only coloured images that I had coloured with lines previously. So this was quite the opposite as I had barely even seen the image before and it has some quite small details.
At 8% opacity I, for some unknown reason, decided that it would be a good idea to colour it in the evening. Yeah, don’t follow my lead there! There were times where I could barely see anything at all! A couple of times I got my phone out to use the flashlight to see what on earth I was supposed to colour, haha!
But it went ok, I think. I need a lot more practice with no-lines colouring, though.
I used paper from Maja Design and Lemon Craft as well as a sentiment from Norsk Stempelblad.
Look at that tiny, tiny, tiny snow globe! I have no idea how I managed to make its contents look half decent. I mean, the nip on the Copics aren’t exactly thin! In fact, I am really quite pleased how the snow globe turned out. Not sure I want to try that again, though!
