This image is Dark Fairy Brittany from Simply B Stamps which is currently still available as a digi. I love this Jude line style which has always inspired me to really get into my the coloring and this one was no exception. I first started by coloring the whole image, keeping in mind that there was two light sources - one from the upper corner and the other would be from her hands. The shadows are probably all over the place as I experimented with the idea.
Once the image was colored then I worked on the glow in her hands. I started with the darker YG colors and worked my way out to the lighter colors. The glow around the hands was done first then I added the reflection on the wings, shoes, face and clothes. Finally as an added touch, I grabbed the white gel pen and added a few more details.
I really wanted the green to stand out as much as possible so I stayed away from those colors when putting my card together. It's not as bright as I had originally wanted but the over all effect and final result turned out better than I had thought. Funny how that works! LOL
I'd like to submit this into the following challenge:
