WOYWW

The weeks are flying by, that is the first month over with, not sorry though, January is my least favourite month of the year!
Wednesday again, means it is time for WOYWW!
This week I am enjoying colouring.  I am working on my shadows and creating some depth on my images, inspired by this lady, just look at this amazing colouring!
You might be wondering why I do all the faces first.  I use Copics for the flesh tones, no good reason other than my preference,  then I do everything else with my Prismacolor pencils.  

(photographed Tuesday cos Wednesday morning is too dark and yucky!)
If you would like to more about WOYWW or would like to play along visit Julia for all the details!
Thanks for dropping by!

Gorgeous colouring - interesting that you use prismas as well as the copics. I must admit that my prismas have taken a back seat since I invested in more and more copics and promarkers, but you might have just prompted me to get them out again because I used to love using them - (Hazel, WOYWW #8) x

Hazel said...

Sorry, in my previous comment I said I was #8 but in fact I'm #10 - I just hadn't refreshed and checked when I left the comment - sorry for the confusion (definitely Hazel, WOYWW #10 x

Super snoop, love the finer detailing of your image, I can work a copic but coloured pencils are a whole other ball game, I guess I just need practice.

Happy Wednesday x

January has been very warm here. I fear February will be the month that hits us. I have never owned any of those markers, but you do fabulous shading and great coloring. Happy WOYWW. I'm # 30 this week.

I only have one copic marker as you can't buy these markers here in the Philippines. My sister gave me prismacolor pencils for Christmas and I love using them for shading! Lovely work you've done! Patsy from

Your shading work is perfect, as are the faces. You can't beat Copics for flesh tones.

YOur colouring is wonderful. I had a play with copcics and pormarkers but I couldn't get the shading right. I sold all the pens out of frustration lol

Oh WOW, i love those images (very envious) but your colouring is amazing, i like the copic skin tones best (tried a few others but always go back to copics) I have heard a lot about prisma pencils but haven't tried it yet!!! I keep going back and looking at your colouring, i wish i could get the shading and add depth to mine i think i will have to practise more! Hope you have a great week Lou xxx

Cor Deb, I'd say you've got it down!!
(That's my trendy speak...cue eye rolling from DD) your colouring is gorgeous, and I love that you're staying mainly with pencils, the colours are so vivid.

Marcia said...

Gorgeous colouring Deb .... beautiful!

Angie said...

Amazing work ...love the fact that you use pencils along with pens ... I just wish I could colour ...well keep it inside the lines lol

Sheena said...

Your colouring is fab! Interesting way of doing it too.

I'm attempting to get around everyone's posts this week (a new one for me!) I don't usually have time to get round everyone.
But I haven't done my own post yet - it'll have to wait til I get home from work this evening.

Hey, no argument here on the mixing of colouring media - go with what works, I say!

Gorgeous work - you're giving Jane a run for her money (and I've been over there and given her a collar to get posting on WOYWW!!!! LOL )

Thanks for stopping by...

Sheri - confessed craftaholic said...

Nicely done. Your coloring and shading is really beautiful!

Aeryn Kelly-Reitmeyer said...

Absolutely gorgeous. I love the depth of green you've gotten. I'm a colouring freak too, but I'm all Copics. I'm nowhere good with my 24 set of pencils.

Hardwick Creations said...

Very colourful, I love the images...they're such fun.

butlersabroad said...

Wow I never knew you used pencils for most of your colouring, I always thought it was copics all the way. I really need to look into some good pencils, I love my water colouring but sometimes want something a bit brighter, although last week I discovered I can water colour with Marvy markers too and they came out nice and bright.
