Marker Geek Monday: Gnome with Lantern Card & Videos

Today I’ve got TWO videos for you! One is my usual speed colouring video showing the colouring for Stamping Bella’s Gnome with Lantern. The second video is a Copic lantern glow tutorial, showing how I created the glow effect around the lantern. It’s easier than you might think!

Marker Geek Monday: 3 Ways to Colour Gnome Beards using Copic Markers

There are a few approaches I like to take to colouring gnome beards, and I thought I would gather them together in a couple of videos. Today I’m sharing three ways to colour beards with Copic markers. Later this week I will be sharing a similar video with coloured pencils.

If gnomes aren’t your thing, this video will still be useful, because the techniques work for any fur or hair texture. The approaches I share are the same ones I use to colour yetis, polar bears, and other animal images, as well as hair and beards on other characters like Father Christmas!

Three Ways to Colour Beards with Copic Markers

Here’s a look at the end results. There’s a smooshy, dabbing approach, the defined look, and a natural hair texture. I show you how I coloured each, in real time, in the video below. The footage hasn’t been sped up, so you can get a good look at how I work, while listening to me waffle!
