Coloring Moon Light with Copics

I’m back today with another crazy lighting video…I just love coloring anything that has challenging light sources! This is a little Stacey Yacula image called Midnight (from Purple Onion Designs), and it’s so sweet it just cried out for some special coloring!

Coloring Moon Light with Copics

Back-lit objects have a bit of a glow from the light that bends around the image. On this one, I struggled with how make the gold glow work – but once I was done, I was very happy with how the tones layered to make especially that hat look like it was truly backlit by a golden moon! Watch the video below, or check it out HERE on YouTube.

I just love how cute and fuzzy little Midnight came out – and that moon actually looked better than I suspected it was going to!
