All About The Eyes


Wow, today I have an interesting challenge from Make It Colourful to share. Not only does Make It Colourful challenge us to colour eyes, they also give two categories for us to enter our projects. The first being a simpler challenge where the eyes are the focal point of the image. The second category makes things more interesting, or difficult depending on your perspective, by adding reflection to the eyes. Some amazing works of art have been produced in this challenge; the girls not only added reflections but also altered and added to the images to make them their own. It is well worth checking out at the Make It Colouful blog.

Anyways, I decided to enter the easy challenge using one of the new images from Make It Crafty, the lovely Melyssa. She's super cute and great fun to colour.

Not only did my first attempt allow me to practice colouring eyes in greater detail, I also got to try using Copics along with Prismacolor pencils. I am quite happy with the results of using the two mediums together, and I will will be practicing this technique some more.

Happy colouring,
