Holy Smokes! Valcanoes, Cute Kids & a Dinosaur!!!

Hi Everyone!

I know it has been a while since I have posted  ... along with the sunny weather arriving so have the outside chores!  

Between washing the deck and playing in the dirt with bedding plants I did find time to finish the April Create and Learn Class by Kit and Clowder.
Today we are heading back in time to the land of dinosaurs and smokey volcanoes.

The cute image used for this class is called Best Friends Dinosaur by Polkadoodles.  Usually I draw in the background following Alyce's instructions but this time around I took the quicker option and used the digi and background combo.  All colouring was done with Copic markers.

In these 2 WIP images things were coming together nicely, in the beginning .....

Then ..... colouring turned into a challenge!  I was experiencing the frustration of multiple markers going dry.  Of course it was ones I wanted to use and had no refills for!  And if that wasn't frustrating enough I was having to change colours, in the middle of colouring!!  Needless to say the image turned out a bit different than expected but all in all it seems to have worked out.
