So today I would like to show you how I color red hair on Kraft cardstock using Prismacolor pencils.
I have written the steps on the actual pictures so you don't get mixed up. :)
I am using a cropped digi called "Peaches" by Mo Manning to demonstrate,
Lay down a layer of Terracotta in the shadows of the hair.
Lay down Pumpkin Orange on top of the terracotta and work inwards.
We're only doing light layers.
Continue with Mineral Orange
Use Peach in the highlights.
Now add a touch of cream to the highlighted areas.
You might think we're done but we're not.
Work your way back down the color range back to terracotta, blending as you do so.
Now its time to really work the shadows. Add Dark Brown in the deepest shadows, then add a few touches of Poppy Red scattered throughout.
A bit more dark brown in the shadows and some cream to highlight the lightest areas.
And the last picture you see all the colors used and finished result.
Hope you had fun!
