Aha Arts Girls stamp
What did I try? Imagining my light source over my right ear which would create highlights on the top of her head and her pocket. And consequently shadows on the left and under her chin. And applying light layers. With super sharp pencils. Cuz I watched this video.
What did I learn?
1. You can use only two colors (light and dark blue, light and dark gray) and hit the darkest areas with a tiny bit of black. Especially on small images.
2. You can color a face with only one pencil (cuz my set only has one rosy tone) and blend it a bit with a white pencil.
3. An eraser can be used to lighten up an area. I did this to highlight a bit of her hair on the right side. I had a problem figuring out where to highlight/shade her hair. I'm OK with the top of her head but don't like the transition to the side. Maybe it's the way the image is illustrated.
