Colouring Tutorial: Using Light and Choosing Colours for Dynamic Results!

Are you curious at how I went about colouring in pages in Animorphia.  Like to have a go yourself?  Here’s my video explaining how I go about colouring in this book using budget priced pencils, in this case my beloved Micador ColouRush pencils along with an old set of kids Fun Stuff pencils.  You can use any coloured pencils you have to recreate my techniques demonstrated in this video.  This video does have a few hiccoughs… one or two brief out of view moments and a piece I had to show horn in because i forgot to do it at the time (The sound quality changes slightly as I added it in the editing program with a microphone instead of my camera mic picking up my nattering as I usually do it.)  It’s another LOOOOONG video, over 40 minutes, but I think you’ll enjoy it.

Remember you can use these techniques in any of your colouring books, not just Kerby Rosanes work.  if you do try them send me a link to the finished pictures.  I would like to see how effective i am at teaching this stuff and I’d LOVE to see your colouring.
