For my inspiration post at Make it Crafty I chose to follow along with the challenge on the Make it Colourful blog. That challenge is Orange/Black and/or Spooky background. I chose to use the whole theme.
This was a challenge for me but I had a blast! Since being a part of Zoe's fantastic Inspiration team I have had the opportunity to broaden, and enhance, my coloring. This is the first time I attempted a background like this and I am pleased with the results. So, how did I do it? I used several different copic colors to color the moon and the sky.
For the moon, before I colored the main color, I used T1 and added little blotches of color throughout the moon.
After that I then outlined the moon with BG000, BG000, and E51. I colored the remaining part of the moon with E50.
For Moxi's hair I colored the darkest areas with N7 and N6 and then added YR27, YR68 and YR15 using mainly YR68 over the N's. What I found with doing this is the YR68 picked up the N's and moved them into the YR68 giving a nice blending look.
After the scene was completely colored I went over some of the 'shiny' areas with Prisma pencils. Remember, when using pencils, to do this after your image is colored as the tips of your Copics could be damaged if coloring over the pencil. I created the smoky/spooky portion using light gray, white and a touch of black.
I really enjoyed creating this scene and let me tell ya, working with scenes is becoming very addicting! Why not give it a try yourself and you will see what I mean.
