Copic Markers and Coloured Pencils
In the meantime I’ve discovered some videos on YouTube which describe the use of markers and coloured pencils. So I
- first put down the colours with the markers.
- Then I did the details with the coloured pencils and my dry watercolour pencils.
- Then I used my colourless blender marker to blend the colours applied with the pencils.
- In some places I again worked with the pencils and
- finished with the colourless blender.
Using markers and coloured pencils makes it possible to combine the advantages of both of them: You can relatively easy and fast colour a background and a foreground and you can do a detailed blending and shading. And, not to forget: You can mix and blend colours far better with coloured pencils and the colourless blender marker than you would be able to do with a limited range of markers. Sure, there are over 300 colours with the copics, but with the money they cost I don’t intend to get the full range.
