Sunny Sunday Highlight of 2 October
For today’s Sunny Sunday I’ve chosen someone who is greatly admired by colorists from all over the world, including me. Her name is Chris Cheng. I only know a little about her, nothing more than that she’s Asian (I think from Malaysia, but I’m not 100% certain), left handed and that she has marvellous coloring skills.
Her first videos on YouTube and pictures on Facebook date from January 2016. The amount of subscribers on Youtube has rissen to 18.653. On Facebook she´s got 3271 friends and Instagram shows that´s she´s got 14,600 followers. It gives quite an impression that what she does must be something special. (Compare this to my 472 Facebook likes, 8 YouTube subsribers and 3032 Instagram followers 😀 ).
Chris Cheng colors lifelike
Well, what Chris Cheng does is truly special! I’ve never before seen someone coloring a woman’s face in a coloring book, with colored pencils, that after it was finished looked like a picture. In amazement and with open mouth I’ve watched her video where she shows how she did it. Her use of colors is wonderful, often faithfully and lifelike, and with fantasy colors she does a great job as well.
I’m not patient enough, and don’t have the time, to color along with her videos. I can imagine though that there are a lot of colorists that do take the time and effort to discover new techniques and color combinations this way. Well, who knows, maybe I will give it a try someday haha. For now I stick with watching her videos every now and then, only to enjoy all the beauty she shares with her followers.
