GDG Color event April 30-May 1 2016 by Ahmed Fouad & Isa Humeau
Yes, tonight we are going to have a color event with 2 wonderful artists. We are going to color some pages with Ahmed Fouad from his gorgeous book GDG “Celestial Art” and with Isa Humeau in her wonderful book GDG “GraphiZen”.
I had the opportunity to work on this blog prior to the event because I had their material beforehand, so I could do a lot of work to inspire you for this event!
I started to color with the 4 freebies, and I put them together in a Work In Progress video for you, so you can see all the steps that I made. I colored with Stabilo 68, Stabilo 88, Staedtler Triplus Brilliance, Spectrum Noir- & Touchliit alcoholmarkers
Isa & Ahmed also did a “Quatre Mains”, that means that they both made a start with a drawing, sent them to each other, and then finished each others work…. but in the meantime you know me! I could not let that opportunity go…. so I had to do that too!
I hope you don’t mind Isa & Ahmed… but knowing you both, I don’t think you will!
Let’s start with Isa’s linework…. typical Ahmed style….and the 3rd is mine….
Isn’t that fun to see, how different the same lines can become to a totaly different art piece to color?
Now I show you the start of Ahmed’s linework…. then in the second you see Isa’s style, and again the 3rd is mine…
Another video for you, how this all came alive….
And if you thought, that this blog party is over, you’re wrong. Of course I also have some friends who are helping to make a surprise… I asked them to color the line work that I made, as a gift of honour to Ahmed and Isa…. For their beautiful art, but also for the party that they have invited us all to, so everybody gets a chance to color their work!
