Ben in the Rain

One downfall to coloring so many samples for the Sheer Clothing challenge is that I have to make as many projects. ;D So this is my last image placed on a mini journal page... Ben in the Rain by Whiff of Joy. In the corner I had to use a chippie from the Butterfly Swirls from Make it Crafty, of course. :D

For the challenge, the transparent parts that I created was the entire coat plus the umbrella top. I first penciled in the jeans, shirt, arms, chin and hair, plus I added a wire frame for the umbrella so the transparency would show up better. I practically erased it to nothing and let my memory help me with the lines then I colored in those area trying to make them a little lighter than the exposed sides. Finally, I used a little yellow and lightly colored in the coat and umbrella keeping most of the colors on the edges where possible.

Wednesday, Wednesday, Wednesday!! Just a last reminder that this challenge, the Christmas-Birthday Blog Hop and my own Blog Candy all end on Wednesday. ;D
