I have spent some time colouring of late
I thought I would stock up on images
but... yes the dreaded BUT
I haven't really got many that I can use
I have to add I am using my Spectrum Noir pens
I have a few pens that have no ink left !!!
some that I have used once and they seem to have no ink left either !!
so blending isn't working..
I bought them last year but didn't start using them until i moved here
so april ish.. they where sat in there packets for 6 months.
Would that really make a difference??
All in all I am not getting on very well with my spectrum noirs.
I have watched lots of tutorials
I have even tried to copy pen for pen
but mine do not turn out right
and it gets upsetting..
Now I did buy them so I could get used to colouring
I had then planned to buy copics as they are more expensive.
so they should be better !!
now I am not so sure.
If I can't colour with these will it be a waste of money
yes it has put me off spending more money
Do I just stick with pencil..knowing pens look better
if its coloured right.
I have even looked for somewhere local that teaches
No luck there.
anyway here is a disaster
I had planned on this image for Paul
as he loves Lara croft and obviously Angelina
The skin just will not blend..
its patchy and just doesn't look right
and the picture below shows how it has bled
The hair bled terrible
and the shorts looks wrong..
So all in all I am not a happy bunny
I had a lovely email from Toni (My world sort of)
Thank you Toni...
I do use 280g card not paper.
and believe it or not i didnt colour to the edges !!!
Maybe I have to buy a different card...
I will try all you have told me and see how I get on
I am going to go take Tasmin for a long walk
we usually do about 5 to 6 miles about lunchtime
it seems it is time to go as she is sat by the front door
looking at her lead.
Thank you for popping by
and as always thank you for all your help
any suggestions welcome
