Joy to the World!
The challenge this week for the High Hopes blog is Silver. So I took this image and colored it in with copics trying to emulate Sandy Allnock and then used Sakura metallic and glitter pens to make the stars silver.
I wanted to emphasize the silver without detracting from it so I matted it on gray. The purple came from the lowlights on his headdress. I used a cutterbee piercing bug to add interest and allude to the faux stitching on his robe, around the image and on the sentiment.
