Trying to color black hair ...

Happy Aloha Friday all! We made it through another week! Yay! Ok, so I bought some Copic markers the other week from Hawaiian Graphics so I could color black hair (Note to self: buy more Copics to color brown, blonde and red hair!) This was my first attempt: Eeww, starting out with the orange Anya, then the purple one. The black hair on the orange one came out so ugly! LOL! Gee, I didn't realize it would be so hard to color black hair!!!

The hair on my furfle girl (purple) got a little bit better.
The next two got better (I think so) ...
Don't mind the blue eye shadow on this one ~ my hubs thought it would look nice. Gee, what year is he living in??? Hasn't he heard that no one wears blue eye shadow anymore??? Hahahah!
And finally my pink girl ... hopefully practice does make perfect. I think I got better as the coloring progressed. What do you think?

Well, I'm off to work in a little while. I'm going to Mamma Mia tomorrow night with my sister (dinner first at Assaggios), then to Jen's Cricut class on Sunday. I need to work on my OCS and my May Aloha RAK too. AND make some "local" cards for Brenda's MS fundraiser (please see the link on my sidebar). Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Until next time, take care of yourselves, be kind to each other, tell your loved ones how much you love them, and be safe out there. Aloha ...

  1. WOW sis, your coloring is getting really GOOD! I still cannot get the technique of the black hair ... my images come out looking like vampires or something to that effect. Sigh...

  3. Hi Linda, what a cut image and enjoyed reading how you created them. I've never used copic's but lots of people seem too, how do they vary from Marvey's that I use which are basically watercolour ?

    Thank you for adding my MS card call to your blog. And in answer to your question, yes of course - I haven't been feeling great today and it shows in my work so I was not over happy with it, but might grow on me.

    Have a good weekend and enjoy the show, it's great.

  5. Hey girl, your coloring of black hair is pretty good! Me too, I never thought it would be so hard to color black hair, but like Kyoko said, just the full on black w/o blending makes them look like vampires or something ugly. Jodi has some great tips. I think she was going to do a tutorial for us...stay tuned... xoxo, Teri P.S. Have fun at Mamma Mia! I was going to go, but had to give up my seat last minute to do mommy stuff, I'm so bummed :0

  6. They are all lovely Linda, and it does take time to get the colouring right anyway, I was always taught to use the lighter shade first then build up with more colour, anyway love the are quite lovely. love and hugs Shirleyxxxx

  9. I can't see anything wrong with any of your black hair coloring?! They all look great to me. Have you seen the "I Like Marker" blog by Marianne of Copics? It's everything we need to know about Copics.
