Coloring transparent clothes with copics :)

Hi!!

Today I have another copic tutorial for you! :D

In this oneI try to show you how I color transparent clothes with copics but you can use promarkers/flexmarkers or other alcohol markers too ^^

Well, today you need light colors, I used only three colors for all the tutorial, but with too colors is okay, I’ll tell you what color is optianl in the steps descriptions.

Lets go!

1) The sketch and lineart 

You have to draw all the figure because this type of fabric is transparent.

For the lineart you can use black ink or colored ink, I recommend you to do colour lines because you’ll get a better result, in this case I use stabilo pens, but you can use a color ball pen, copic multiliner or any pen with alcoholproof ink :)

2) The skin

You have to color the skin but you must to use a lighter color for the skin under the fabrict. Important, the chest area must be painted with a very light color (apply the color in the inner of the folds, I put green lines with pc in this areas because can’t see them well in the photo) or if you want  you want you can leave it blank because this area have a lot of folds and the skin is barely visible.

3) Shades

I’ll start coloring the skirt.

I applied BG01 for the shadows, in areas where the cloth is overlay we apply this color too because you see the fabric “darker” because the fabric is transparent :)

4) Base color

I’ve used B00 for the base color, we color all the fabric with this color.

5) Increase the shadows

To increase the shadows I used BG01 in the same areas as the step 3, follow the arrows ^^

6) Darker shades

I used B63 only in areas that the fabric isn’t loose like shirt cuff, ruched/shirred fabric, etc. Follow the arrows.

These shadows accentuates the depth of the fabric.

This step is completely optional! You can do this step with the darker color you use previusly, BG01 in this example :)

7)  The highlights

Step I applied the highlights, I used a white gel pen, but you can use white ink or a white pencil too or don’t apply white, this step is optional too but the final result is better if you apply some white, it’s depends of your personal style ^^

1’) Shades

Time to do the shirt/chest zone, is very similar to the skirt but I have think that it was better to do them separated. 

I applied BG01 for the shadows, in this case we apply the shadows like regular fabric because this are have lot of folds making the fabric more opaque, but we leave a small white border/edge.

2’) Base color

Colour all the area with a lighter color (yes, the white edges too), in this case B00, the same as the skirt base color ^^

3’) Increase the shadows

To increase the shadows I used BG01, follow the arrows.

4’) Darker shades

I used B63 to do darker shadows and increase the depth of the fabric. Follow the arrows.

This step is completely optional! You can do this step with the darker color you use previusly, BG01 in this example :)

5’) The highlights

Final step! I’ve applied the highlights, I used a white gel pen, but you can use white ink or a white pencil too or don’t apply white, this step is optional too but the final result is better if you apply some white, it’s depends of your personal style ^^
