I know, I know, better late than never though right.
So here is my project for today’s challenge. Edward Cullen. Make a challenge that focuses on Edward. Well, somewhat easier said than done. But in the end I decided that simplicity was better than the complex so I went with my Greeting Farm stamp of Wild Sprout Edward and then my new favorite thing… some Cosmo Cricket paper. Edward’s going a little casual today…
I can’t ever remember what paper pack I used but I think is the Cosmo Cricket Earth Love, I think, a bunch of Bazzill Basics cardstock in browns and my trust PTI white with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and my Copics.
Here’s a closeup of Edward….
Sometimes you just get lucky with the focus on your camera, lol, this thing is in such tight focus you can see the grain of the PTI white cardstock. That grain is not visible in person.
I used a whole slew of browns, flesh tones and greens on this thing and I forgot to write them down. I know for certain the hair is mainly E33, E35, E37 and E08 to give it a reddish look. For skin I use E00 and YR00 as an accent. His sweater and pants are the same colors from his hair just used in different quantities and his shirt… this is the one I don’t remember but I think it was G21 and YG67 (I think). His shadow is C1, C3 and 0.
I’m not sure if anyone is interested in this but I was thinking of putting together a tutorial of how I use Copics to shade these. I know there are a lot of these out there so I wasn’t sure if it would be useful…. thoughts?
So there you have it.
Now on to my thoughts about dear Edward. Well, I’ve read so much fan-fiction that for me it’s somewhat hard to remember what book Edward is like but, I do know that while I loved Bella’s character the story wouldn’t have been half of what it was without the complexity and the flaws and the perfection of Edward’s character And no I don’t think he’s perfect… I think he’s perfectly flawed… the quintessential Catch 22 – the perfect ‘man’ whose not really a man but instead a predator, with that kind of plot set up how can you go wrong.
Now if you haven’t done it already go visit the other DT members because they rock. 😀
