Quick Dinosaur sketch

Local Events
I have been very busy this Summer, but I wanted to quickly share a few things. This Thursday and Friday I will be teaching some fabulous Papercrafting Certification classes in Eugene. If you have not seen a list of all the classes that we have open, we have many on our website:

Standard Classes

Intermediate Classes

We hope to see you at one of our classes soon!

CHA Sketch
Meanwhile, I wanted to share a simple, quick drawing I did last week while I was at CHA, coloring in the Copic booth. It is always such a neat experience to see my papercrafting friends and meet with so much talent. I had a little time to work on my own doodles while I was helping out, so this little guy came from a free moment. It is nice to have a chance to draw something for myself every now and then, so I don't have a tutorial.

I drew this little dinosaur with a .8 multiliner, onto X-Press It cardstock. He is colored with YG11, Y21, YG63, B02, C3, BG10, and B00. I used the colorless blender to fade the gray shadow and the BG10 sky out to the white of the paper.

This week, I hope you find some time to doodle and color for no reason but to have fun!

He's a cutie. I wish I could draw freehand so nicely!

How cute! Is there a past tutorial posted on how you do the fading background/outline?

Linda Osterwise, DT said...

Your drawings are so cute, I wish you could share them with us. I also would like more information on fading the background/outline. I'm not there yet. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to learn and enjoy your talent.

Amazing, as always. You are such a talented artist! I wish I could draw freehand! I'll be working and practicing on it though.

The faded blue background tutorial is actually found in the Level 2 Copic Coloring Guide book.

Your dino is adorable!!! I have a question and I hope you can address it in a blog post soon. I am intermidiate certified but I'm not sure I totally understand the greys. When I say this I actually mean the toner greys. I think cool, warm and neutral are self explanitory, just not sure on the toner greys. Please help, thanks.
