Colouing Skin Tutorial and a Flexmarker Giveaway

So it’s my turn for a little tutorial and I have a Flexmarker by letraset giveaway to bout.

First my finished Card the image is by Victoria Case and is called Sitting Angel

VictoriaCaseSittingAngel1

I wanted to concentrate on colouring skin as it is one of the things I get asked most about.

VictoriaCaseSittingAngel2

I did a quick tutorial video over on the Letraset Blog so to win a set of 12 Flexmarkers head over there and leave a comment and of course leave one her too, I will choose a winner from the comments left, so you have 2 chances of winning if you leave a comment at both here and the letraset blog.

This is what you could win

Em said...

Thanks for the tutorial Jak, i couldnt get any sound but the pics were a good guide.
I don't have those colours so have used the following combination of pro and flex markers.
Antique white flexmarker, vanilla promarker and pastel pink promarker.
I like the effect, i think it is due to the layering in your tutorial I have never coloured skin this way before.
I will be watching more of your tutorials from now on so I can develop my skills further
Thanks again :-)
