This was one of those coloring jobs where I went over everything about a hundred times and wasn't sure what it would look like until I was nearly finished. It was a new challenge and touch and go for a while. LOL To get the Avatar look, I colored with blues, green, blue/greens and even some yellows to create the skin tone and strip pattern. Then once the skin was finished I added the white dots with the gel pen. The eye were colored with greens and yellows and the lips were colored with a little bit of pink/purple. Here's a before and after slice of the fairy.
At first, I wasn't sure what color to do the clothes but decided to bring in some neon purples and pinks which coordinated well. The hair was done by dotting the gray tones and was a lot easier than I had anticipated.
I wanted to keep the ground the same neon colors as the flowered background but I also wanted grass. So I later went in and added green strands for grass and then placed my fairy image on top of that. The mixture is a little different for me and I'd probably go for all green/grass the next time. But I think in the end, this might be considered a "happy accident" which is always a bonus! LOL
Finally the last thing I needed to do was place the images on a card - this was a challenge all in itself! But I managed to find some scraps that didn't fight with the image and chose to go with something very basic and simple. I hope you like it and maybe you'll be trying a little Avatar Navi image in your future! Yes?!
