C'est vrai, en fait, maintenant que je pense. Red hair is rare! Il est vraiment jolie avec sa bleus yeux et sa verte robe, aussi.

Also, that kind of looks like how I color eyes! :D I would have done that stripping thing a few times they way you colored these eyes and applied a few more layers of the darker blue each time. :)

You know I cannot do that stripping thing! I have to use different colors each time, that's not fair... ;P

For the eyes, it's more of a dabbing than stripping, but the same idea. And it's with the brushy part of a Copic blender, which is usually much stronger than a Prismacolor blender and Promarker blender, though I've never used a Promarker blender, so I don't know. Do you have a Promarker blender?

But, yes, I think you should try "dabbing" with a Copic blender after you add two colors of the eyes. Recolor and repeat. ;)

I do have a promarker blender (and none from the other kind of markers)... And I do try stripping from time to time but it's always leave just a "stain" on paper... Maybe it's the kind of paper I use ???

I think it's either the paper or the blender because I know you can do this little technique easily. What kind of paper do you use? I use bristol board when I draw and color and simple card stock if I print something of yours (or anyone else to color). Their textures are slightly different, but they are similar in thickness.

But I also notice a difference with the blenders. The Prismacolor lightens (strips) most colors evenly, but the Copic is much stronger and has a line or streak effect (good for hair or dabbing eyes). Copic can be called "that streaking thing I do," which is just as funny! :) And I don't know what the Promarker blender is like.

Don't tell anyone, but the first thing of yours I colored was actually on regular printer paper! :O

I used to color on Canson prolayout markers papers (ex: [link]) but I've found that regular printer paper gave a softer look (ex: [link]) and help blend the colors because it "drink" a lot of ink, thus the paper stay wet longer and that's make it easier to blend many colors one on top of the others. Plus the printer ink, with a bit of art fixative, do not react with the alcool-based markers so I can go over it without creating black strokes, which I wasn't able to do with the Canson paper. The only challenge is to keep the bleeding under control. So don't tell anyone, but I've actually been using regular printer paper for a while now!
Promarker blender are are on the stronger side I guess. They leave a stain effect very easely.
