A velvety touch

Today I would like to show you my take on creating a velvet look using Copics. When I printed Alexander I really wanted to make his jacket look like Velvet. Velvet is a perfect compliment to red and green.


I feel like I achieved the look I wanted, I think his jacket looks like gray crushed velvet.

002 suit

Here is how I achieved this look. First, I colored the jacket with T6, T5, T4 and T3. After that I took T2 and 'dotted' the color over the entire jacket to give  that texture look.  I did the same technique with the sleeve cuffs and collar using N9, N7, N5, N4 and then took N3 and 'dotted' the color over the entire sleeves and collar.

I hope that I have inspired you to give this technique a try, it really is pretty easy and gives a nice looking texture.
