GDG “Celestial Art” by Ahmed Fouad
I am everytime surprised again when I see this gorgeous cover. I like the colors, and the way it’s done!
The cover really invites me to take a look inside the book, and that’s exactly what I am gonna do with you!
GDG “Celestial Art” has a lot of different styles to color, mandala kind of stuff, animals, doodle and tangle style. I like the style that Ahmed uses, gives me really a nice time coloring his work. I colored the owl for this review to show you. I used my ShinHan Touch alcoholmarkers, and the little brother of ShinHan, my Touch Liit alcoholmarkers. Also grabbed some Staedtler Norris Brilliance, a really nice and fine 0.3mm fineliner.
I also made a small video, to show you the stepp by stepp that I did in this coloring so you can see how the owl becomes alive.
On our Global Doodle Gems fangroup, I colected some other work from Ahmed, done by different colorists. I will show them to you to inspire you, but also that you can see how beautifull Ahmed’s work will become with colors!
Colorist: Dom Domx. What a great choice of colors, it is like sunshine to me!
Colorist: Nancy van Acker & Sandrine Gaucher, look how the same drawing can become totally different art when people color there on favorite way.
If you wanna learn more about Ahemd, look at his artist profile too!
Colorist: Lynn Stevens & Stacey Hayward. Also a beautiful set, to see how art can become different art. Lynn’s very soft and smooth, while Stacey choosed more “hard bright” colors.
This one is also colored by Stacey, great job, love the colors
Colorist Arianne Schimmel also did the owl. She used Faber Castell Pitt Artist pens for this gorgeous piece
Maybe you like Ahmeds book as much as I do, and do you like to color his art your self…
