Art Adventures – continued
One week ago I bought my first copic markers. They are produced in Japan, and they come in about 144 colors. One end of them is a brush, and the other one a nib.
There are quite a lot of video tutorials about them on YouTube, and I had been watching many of them before actually buying them. Then I thought about this drawing, and that it might be nice coloring it.
Well, I was the proud owner of three copic ciaos (these are the markers for the beginners, they say), and I had found a nice box for them. On the one hand I really wanted to try them, on the other hand I was afraid of ruining my drawing.
In the end curiosity won, as you can see above. In many aspects painting/coloring with copics is similar to painting with water colors. You begin with the lightest color and then shade with the darker ones. I had the feeling though that I’ve got far more control then I would have with water colors. I think I hooked!
