One of my girlfriends lives in England and was kind enough to send me the Colouring Heaven Halloween special because she likes me, haha. I picked this image right away because I liked it and then later thought, hey, I want to make this gal look kinda like Triss Marigold from the Witcher games (she looks different in the books), but in a more traditional world instead of her own. I mostly used Copics for this, because it's one-sided, and the paper is actually kind of nice with Copics. Not great, but still nice, and markers are faster.
DONE! so happy with how this came out. Decided to base her on Triss Marigold from the Witcher games, as if she were a more "traditional" witch, so I took her colours and added in autumn. Plus I discovered purple mushrooms are a thing! #halloweenspecial2018 by #colouringheaven using #copicmarkers and #luminance #colourist #colouredpencils #colouringbook #colouring #thedailymarker30day (day 2)
Once I finished I think it worked out really well. Her nose got a bit weird, but sometimes you just gotta test things out and see how they'll work. I had a great time with this one and experimenting with underpainting more. I coloured her dress... cloak... thing with a brownish YG91 first, all over, and then came back in with several greens. This gave it a sort of dirty, faded look that I really liked. I also painted out some elements in the background that I wasn't interested in and used Distress Ink to do the smokey look. Below you can see what Triss looks like in Witcher 3, so I kind of only used her features and unnaturally red hair, but I still think it was a cool challenge to bring one witch as inspiration for another witch.
