Tutorial Thursday - Colouring stippled clothing on Christmas Baby!

Good morning everyone in La-La Land!

DT Stephanie here with you today for a brand new Thursday tutorial! I decided to play with Christmas Baby as soon as I saw him within the new release, so we're going to give him a stippled kind of texture on his hat. I'm using Copic markers, but the same process applies regarding shadows with other mediums.

Let's start this with your C5, carefully putting small dots where your shadows appear.

Next, take out your C3 and keep doing dots over half of the previous layer, dragging new dots over the white space.

Repeat the same thing with C1...

And end up with your C0, making sure you leave some white spots, too. Repeat previous steps all over again if you want more intensity.

And here's the final result, followed by complete clothing!

Want to have a sneak peek of my next colouring using this technique? Here's a glimpse on Paper Doll Marci- Bear Hat, also from the new release!

Thank you for watching, hope you will try it too :-)
