How to work on an Illustration with complementary colors.

Complementary Colors on an Illustration
Last week on my Color Course for Illustration, with the talented teacher Marian Larios, I had to work on an illustration with complementary colors.
Blue - Orange
On this Color course, I'm learning how to work with colors, the right way, too much to learn, and so happy to be there.
Too much to learn yet.
If you are looking to learn about the illustration world, I would recommend Marian Larios, she speaks Spanish, so her courses are in Spanish, if you speak it or if you understand it, it worth all!

Kaleidoscope Free Paper Toy

Paper Kaleidoscope Toy
I love Paper Toys, if you ask me why, I would say, for me they are something I've been always attracted to, they are colorful, they are made out of a piece of paper, they are so playful, I can hold them in my hands and play with them for hours.
Another thing I love about Paper toys, it's we all can make them!
This time, together with my sister Mariana, we worked together to make our own Kaleidoscope Paper Toy, you might seen this Kaleidoscope made out paper on the net.
We fall in love with it, and we challenged ourselves to make one for us.
After a few days working on it, here you have it, it works, you can download for free, this time you have to choices to pick from, one with color already on it, or one for coloring, you can color it and then cut, glue and play with it.
Hope you like it, hope you make one or many and have lots of fun with it.

To download the paper toys, click on each one and print them out.

Never Stop Learning, Color Class for illustrators

 Color Class
I'm taking the "Color Class" and online course with Marian Lario, a wonderful illustrator and great teacher, this is my 3rd online course I take with her, she never disappoint me, her online courses are complete, well written, easy to follow with lots to learn.
Marian Lario's Blog "El Gato Azul De Prusia" (in Spanish) has always post with great information and resources for illustrators.
In this "Color Class" there is a student Natali, she is another wonderful illustrator and great teacher too. you can visit her blog Nata Ludica (in Spanish), she also always share her knowledge and great illustrations.
And this "Color Class" is as good as the other two I already taken with her, on the first week we learned about the basic of color in illustrations, as homework we need to work on an illustration.
 I'm happy to share with you all some steps of my homework.
1. I made a sketch on my sketch book with pencil.

 2. I scanned it, then I cropped it, worked a little on the brightness and made lines dark enough.
I'm not a professional illustrator and for sure I'm not a professional working with photoshop, but I try to do my best, hope one day I learn enough to make better illustrations, never quilt to learn more.
 3. I made a layer on photoshop and I began to work on the color,
4. I finished my homework adding some touches with more color.
well, think this little guy is having some fun watering one of his friends, I could name this illustration empathy.
