MarkerPop Blog Hop....

Hello and welcome to the MarkerPop Launch Party Blog Hop. Today, we are excited because iCopic has a new name, MarkerPop: The Home of Premium Markers + Lots More! We still the same great company that you've come to know, just with a fun new look! Please be sure to check out all that is in store at MarkerPop. We even have a new MarkerPop Challenge that's starting TODAY! The MarkerPop challenge will start every Monday & it is designed to inspire you to get out all your markers & start coloring! And in true MarkerPop fashion, there will be a fabulous prize every week for one lucky participant. There is always something new and exciting at MarkerPop. Keep up with us daily at the MarkerPop Blog, where we will be posting new projects each day.

For our blog hop today, we are sharing our projects to go along with our first MarkerPop Challenge theme: Fur/Hair coloring.  Here's my project:


I love colorning hair. It's actually my favorite thing to color. That and faces. I will stamp out bunches of images and just sit and color hair and faces. When coloring hair I always flick away from myself and rotate the image as I go around. It's a more natural movement to flick away rather than towards my body. I also start with light colors and then add in my dark colors. If my dark lines are too harsh, I will go back in with my lighter colors and blend it out a little bit, but not too much because I want to be able to see the strokes.

I have used Copics on this image but I am eagerly awaiting my Shinhan Markers that MarkerPop's now carrying!  I am hoping to play a little and test them out to share with our readers!  My image is "Gifty Gwen" from Some Odd Girl.

Copic colors used:
Hair - E50, E51, E53, E33
Skin - E000, E00, E11, R11
Dress:  E81, E84
Red: R22, R24, R29, W4
Pink: RV10, R81, R85
Gray: C3, C5, C1

I hope that I've inspired you to join in on the hop. Be sure to head back to the MarkerPop Blog when you are done hopping so you can play along with our challenge this week! Click on the next name on our blog hop list below:
