Trying Out My New Caran d'Ache Neocolor II

Before I talk about what I did today I wanted to mention:

Yesterday, after my automatic email went out I decided I wanted to say more about what I had, if you get that automatic email you might want to see what I added.

One thing I have decided to do is start including pictures of what I use to create and color.  The easiest way I know to do that is to show the Amazon version of it because it shows a picture and a price...LOVE THAT!  Yes, if you click on the link and make a purchase I get some small something for it (never gotten anything yet so it has to be TINY TINY!)  But, we all know that you can get a lot of things with coupons at local stores ... by all means do that!  I do.  But if you are going to purchase through Amazon anyway, I would certainly appreciate the help!  

Just so you know, the reason I use different things to color and draw with is that I am getting more and more different products from Blitsy for free, I wouldn't think to buy them if I weren't...though I am LOVING what I have gotten so far!  The colors I used today are AWESOME for watercoloring! (wish I had all the colors)

Now for today's thing.....

Today I decided to do something REALLY quick and easy using some of what I was happy with yesterday... the rounded tubes that look like they are going up and are getting smaller as they go up....kinda messed that up with the green and purple one...shoot!  But, that would probably be an easy fix since I made the background all black...just go on the edges with the black.  The plan was to fill in all the spaces with more doodles but I thought the black would make the color pop more annnnnd... truth be told,  I wanted to move on to practicing my lettering.

Oh!  One more thing, I am not mentioning the paper because it is a CHEAP, CHEAP book I bought last week that started falling apart before I drew the first thing!  ARGH!!!  It wasn't worth the trouble to take it back and I like the size so I'm just letting the pages fall out and using them that way.

What I Used Today:

I actually got my Caran d'Ache Neocolor II free from Blitsy.

1. Drew with Sharpie
2. Colored the whole tube with Neocolor II then painted over the color with the water in the waterbrush to spread it.
3. Painted the stripes with the Dr. Ph. Martin's using the waterbrush again
4. Went back over the edges of the tubes with a darker shade of the Neocolor to add shading
5 Filled in with the black Copic

Note: I used the Dr. Ph. Martins for the darker rings because I didn't feel I had enough variety of color with of the Caran ... I only have 15 colors and I wanted more contrast than I could get with the colors I had.
