Adventure Jamie & Maddie -- Coloring Without Boundaries

I'm so excited about this new undertaking, Coloring Without Boundaries!  Lacy Sunshine images, tutorials, and lots and lots of coloring!  I can't think of anything I enjoy more!  Today, I'm sharing the Lacy Sunshine digi, Adventure Jamie & Maddie.  I'll show you the finished colored image first, then take you through my coloring process, step by step.  I used Copic markers throughout.

 First, skin -- I wanted Jamie's skin to be more ruddy than Maddie's.  I wanted Maddie to have that peaches and cream look to it.  With that in mind, here are the colors I used.  Jamie's skin -- E50, E53, E33.  Maddie's skin -- E000, E31, E21, R20.  Eyes -- I use as many colors in the eyes as I can fit in.  I think it adds depth.  Jamie's eyes -- E53, E55, W1.  Maddie's eyes -- B00, B24.


Next, I color the hair.  Jamie needed a hair color to match his pretty brown eyes.  Maddie needed a hair color to go with those vivid blue eyes.  Jamie's hair -- E31, E42, E44.  Maddie's hair -- E50, Y21, YR24

Skin & hair done.  On to the clothing and vine! 

These 2 looked like they were on a safari-type adventure to me, so I colored their clothing in jungle colors.  I colored the vine with enough contrast that the viewer could distinguish vine from people.  Colors listed below.

Jamie's hat & jacket -- YG 91, YG93, YG95, YG97
Jamie's hat band -- YR21, YR24, YR27
Maddie's Jacket & hat band -- B32, B34, B37
Maddie's hat -- E93, E95, E97, E99
Vine -- YG21, YG23, YG25, E30, E31, E34
Flowers -- RV52, RV55, RV66
Jamie's pant -- E21, E23, E25
Jamie's belt -- E30, E31, E33
Buckle -- C1, C3
Jamie's boots -- BV20, BV23, BV25, C01, C03, C05
Maddie's pants -- YR20, YR24, YR27
Maddie's boots -- BV000, BV01, BV04, C01, C03, C05
