I colored Tilda with Copic markers. Typically when I color I’m a little heavy handed. Today I went extra heavy because I wanted to talk a little bit about how I shade. I colored my image just as I normally would but then I went back in with W’s. Mostly W4 and W7. I added in W7 in the darkest areas to give my image more depth. On my lighter colors, like the pencils, I mostly used W4. Had I gone with too much of the W7 in the light yellows, I felt it would have been too dark. I also added W4 along the face where the hair would make a bit of a shadow. W’s are also great for shading REDS.
You can see in the above photo the gray tones.
