Clementine the Teacup Girl

Hi everyone...

Did ya miss me? LOL! I started back to work last week on modified hours and it sucked the life blood outta me. I had to come home and lay down for a while and the last thing I wanted to do was LOOK at a computer. This week seems to be a bit better, although I am not up to colouring at all after getting home. I have to reserve that for the weekends I guess.

This is Clementine the Teacup Girl and and I coloured her up a couple weeks ago. She was the FIRST image I attempted after getting the hand in motion again and since it had been over two months since I held a marker, I thought I would start with something easy and not too detailed.

I used the Basic Grey Kioshi paper as my inspiration and after finishing her up I thought I should have done the teapot in soft green instead, but oh well, she is what she is and I am sure there are some purple fans out there. As the story always goes, she was stamped with Brilliance ink on Bella's Bestest Paper and coloured with the following copic markers:

E0000, 000, 00, 11, R20
V000, 01, 12, 15
E50, 51, y21, 26, E31, 33 (for the hair...yes all of these!)
YR31, Y15, 38
YG21, G82, YG67

As I always do I used some very deep purple pencils to add a bit of depth to the teapot. And all shading and grass was also done in pencil.

Now don't forget!!!!!!!!

Your cards are always so beautiful. Hard to believe you colored this with a "bum" hand. My mother broke her wrist a few months ago...not a fun thing and hard to get to moving it well. Take care,

I'm so sorry you are feeling wiped after work. Hopefully you feel better soon.

Your image is as adorable as ever. Your colouring can't be beat.
