Naughty Or Nice: October Challenge

So I was sitting at my desk wanting to colour something... What should I do? Well, there is no Thanksgiving in China, but being at a Canadian school I'm sure we'll do something and since it's coming up on Oct. 13 I thought I would colour a pumpkin!! 

I decided to photo the steps to see how the image progressed... (this is an image from There She Goes illustrated by Danielle Lounds)


I could have left it there, but I didn't. I also could have added shading with Copic markers, but I didn't. 
I used my trusty General's Chalk Pencil and blending stump like I showed you IN THIS VIDEO

So here is some shading where I just focused on cast shadows. (Shadows that are cast by an object or a figure) 

So if you look under the vines, around the pinecone, and on the ground you can see where I added the shading. Again, I could have left it there, but I wanted to enhance the shadows within the image, so I added more! 



You can see the shading on the pumpkin, itself. All of the grooves have shadows and I beefed up the shadows on the bottom too.. Also check around "Thankful." 

Here's the completed card: 


And here's all of the markers I used: 


(The odd marker is a Spectrum Noir... It's a dark green and really pretty!!) 

So you read it right.. After a month off I've continued on with the Naughty Or Nice challenge and I'm holding a DT call.. Do you have it in you to make 1 or 2 cards a month with a slightly naughty bent?? Then check out the details IN THIS POST!

For the "naughty" portion of the challenge I made this card:


Just having a little fun with the "thanks" theme!! 

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. how funny...I just saw your video and then just clicked on your blog post and saw that you are using them again! Great card. Since I am also a Canadian living in another country (USA) we also celebrate Thanksgiving in Oct...my kids think its cool that they get 2 thanksgivings. Early Happy Thanksgiving!
