I wrote before about buying the iColorama app for my iPad. I haven’t had much time to learn its features, but I have spent a few moments here and there mucking about in it.
I know that many people color digitally, so I want to make my coloring mandala designs digitally friendly to appeal to as many customers as possible.
I took one of my Mandala Monday designs and colored it in with my Procreate app.
Here’s what it looks like straight out of Procreate. I just used the color bucket drag-n-drop feature to color in the various pieces. I like the way it turned out, but I wanted to see if I could add to it using the iColorama app.
So I opened the colored mandala in iColorama and then started playing around with various options. I had tried the paper texture previously and liked it, so I started with that.
I really like the paper texture – I can almost feel the ridges of the paper under my fingertips when I look at this image. It still seemed kind of flat, though, so I kept trying other filters and options.
This is what I ended up with:
I wanted to share what filter I used, but I didn’t note it before I saved the image, and now I can’t remember. 😦 Getting older has its downsides. 😛
Even though I can’t remember what filter I used, I’m happy with the final result. The image now pops and the paper texture I used makes it look like a photo of a physical art piece, which is pretty cool.
I’m definitely going to have to carve out some time to watch some tutorials on iColorama, because I think it will be an amazing tool to use with my designs.
