30 Day Coloring Challenge - Day 12

WAHOOO!  Day 12! here's my submission for #thedailymarker30day challenge.  It's another one from Stamping Bella.  Super cute girlfriends.  I love it!

My reflex is to color all people in the picture with the same skintone.  I think that was more of a learned habit because when I started coloring with copics, I tried to color all "people" stamps with my own skintone.  And I think I did that because it was easy to hold up my coloring against my own arm to see if my coloring looked like real skin.  Last January I took a Copic Workshop on coloring hair and skintones and I learned a WHOLE lot of combinations that were just amazing.  Since then, I have been trying to use what I've learned and I have been super happy with how well everything is turning out!
And gosh, I think I might need to do something about the picture quality ... I have been taking pictures with my iphone5s.  Perhaps I just need better lighting?  probably.  I need to figure that out... 
Anyway.  Happy Sunday.  I hope everyone has a good day!
