Pirate Princess Miranda

This one is just a random character, Miranda, but she's inspired by a funny pirate themed Wii game Zack & Wiki. I love the game, It's all about solving difficult puzzles in a cute world.

But I also wanted to make a colored Pencil tutorial, because I have often been asked for one. So this is at the same time a tutorial picture. The tutorial shows my tecnique by skin coloring, but I used the same tecnique also when coloring the rest of the picture.

Here you can find the tutorial of my colored- & watercolor pencil tecnique:

Did you color over the inked lineart/outline with the color pencils 9the ones you used ink for)? Or was the lineart/outline color adjusted in photoshop?
nokecha's avatar
I used black marker to paint the lineart and I colored on top of the line with colored pencils. So I defined the lineart with the colored pencils. Maybe this tutorial would help to explain: [link]

Ah gotcha. I just wasn't sure. I saw the tutorial before but it didn't mention coloring over the black lines. Thanks for clearing that up!

What scanner do you have? I can never get my traditional works to come out this beautifully on my computer.
(This is truly inspiring! I hope you don't mind my inquiry. :) )

I have Canon Pixma Printer. But of course it doesn't make the drawing look like it should look so I always use Photoshop to adjust the levels and the colors of the picture. I'm happy if you find this tutorial inspiring! Thank you!

You just need to buy good quality colored pencils from an art store.
