Apparently there is a day just for coloring books. Yesterday, if you were unaware. Like days for donuts, cakes, etc., I only heard about it on the day. I don’t think anyone could keep up with all these random days. Anyway, my skin tone marker set also happened to show up in the mail yesterday, so I thought I’d do something with them.
A few weeks back I sketched this picture:
and colored it in pencil in my drawing pad. Then I had the idea to color it in marker and watercolor as well, so I traced it in Photoshop and printed it out three times. I decided to do the colored pencil again just to have the three on the same paper in the same dimensions for comparison. And I wanted to film them all:
I think it’s safe to say that I am best at the markers. But, that is what I’ve had the most practice in, so that was fairly predictable. Watercolor was the quickest, which I wouldn’t have thought of, just because I haven’t painted much recently and thought it would be more difficult. I really ought to get a colorless blender pencil, as well.
All in all, this was a really fun project. It was nice to see how one picture can be so different in different media.
