Chads Valentines

So here it is February 11th already, and some of you know what that  For the past six years (K-5) I have been making a special little boys Valentines for his classmates.  Chad and I come up with the theme for the Valentines and once that's done I go to work on them.  This year he wanted Creeper from the  Mine Craft Computer Game and wasn't sure what he wanted for the girls, he left that up to me.  So this is what I came up with for both.

The center 12 x 12 framed card is the original design. It is Chads Valentine from me.
For the boys it's  the Creeper Character roaming the world wishing everyone
 a Happy Valentines Day.
And for the girls I used a Digi Image from Saturated Canary and colored her with
my Copic Markers and added a bottle cap necklace to them. 
This was the first project I have actually done with the Copics and love working with them.
Because of this project I have decided to take the  two day Standard and Intermediate Certification classes in Boston, Mass in March...I am so excited to be going.
Here's the results of my 1st coloring project
I know there's so much to learn about coloring and shading.  I actually sort of cheated
doing this project I only colored the 4 girls shown here, I then photo copied them
so I had what I needed.

Character Construct Swap

I have been asked several times to post the art I received back from the Character Construct swaps
 I have participated in.  The3 swaps I have done so far were for tags,
I love the art work from this group of ladies.
