Copics Creations Challenge No. 7 ~ Brunette Hair

6 260_1


It’s our 7th challeng over at the Copics Creations blog!!  The challenge this week is Copic marker coloring of Brunette Hair.  

I’m totally in love with this image ~  thanks to the amazingly talented Jami Bova!   I think she has started a new trend here.   Awhile ago, Jami did this GORGEOUS card  using another lineart drawing by the same artist of this image ~ Princess Elemmiriel  of  deviant.   The most amazing part is that these images are FREE to download!     

Here’s my card using Princess Elemmiriel’s lineart image called Lady Rose Dragon.

Our awesome sponsor for this challenge is Diana Crick of Scor-Pal.   One lucky participant will win a Scor-Pal of their very own!  Soooooo cool.   🙂

To me the best part of coloring this image is the eyes!   They are drawn to look so realistic, you can’t possibly go wrong when coloring these with your Copic markers.  Here’s a closeup of Lady Rose’s green eyes:
