It's Mo time again!

My son is an RAF Cadet and as such he has had the
opportunity to fly a plane several times....
....so when Mo Manning released this image
I just had to get it!
Mo Manning - "Dream" 
The image has been coloured using my usual combination of
Faber Castell Polychromos
Caran D'Ache Pablos
and a couple of Derwent Artist pencils
on kraft card
Papers - Best of British by Forever Friends
Die - Magnolia Doohickey Starlight Lace
Here is a close up of the young pilot

Jane said...

Ooh tricky one Ellen as it really depends on the image but basically I grab E0000, E000, E00, E11 and V20 or BV20 and sometimes if necessary some of the browns for shadow areas.
I tend to opt for light flesh tones - as the skin I use for reference is my own & I have very pale skin (I come from a family of redheads)
