Art Imitates Life?

In addition to talking (see Rina's Youtube Channel): ...I do also LOVE to write...its time for the BLOG-iness to happen. HEE!

LATEST OBSESSION: Copics and Greeting Farm

Here's a little secret from a Copic Newbie...coloring black hair whether you use the cool (C9, C7, C5, C3)or warm (W9, W7, W5, W3) grays is FAR MUCH EASIER to do than any other colored hair..WHY? because those ARE the colors you use (well those are the ones I use) - with the other colored hair there are so many color combos. what to chose? what to chose?  Brown Hair is my nemesis...have not mastered it yet... Anyhoo, this image was slightly DRAMA, I'll list the colors that I used but DISCLAIMER, these aren't the colors that you necessarily should use, but more the colors I have in my stash, and most of the time I cover up boo-boos with other colors so there you go, here is the list of the "madness"

Face - E50, E51
Eyelids, Shoes - E31, E34
Hair (Drama Part) - E31, E35, YR21, YR24, Y21
Pants - B12, B14
Shirt - W1, W00
Bandana, Patch on Pants - R02, R05
Belt - E25, E31
