Welcome! I am getting ready to leave early Wednesday for Boston to teach a Copic Intermediate Certification class on Friday, June 10. Anybody else want to join us? It's a small class, so there should be plenty of time for individual attention. I am running a bit behind on the sketch that I was intending to post before I left; it is drawn and even inked, but it isn't colored yet. So, I am sharing a textural piece that I have in my Copic art portfolio and waiting until I get back from Boston to color and post the trillium image. I have some fun ideas up my sleeve for that piece, and i don't want to rush it!
The oranges were sketched from photograph that I took last year in Germany. Rather than the gray ink that I feel more comfortable drawing with, I used one of my Copic Black 0.3 multiliners on this one. (The gray one is in the picture because I added a bit of cross-hatching in some shadow areas with it.) This piece was intended only as an experiment with texture. I love using my colorless blender to push color back and reclaim highlights!

Copic Markers that I used:
BV02, BV04, BV25
RV95, RV99 (I used Blue-Violets and Red-Violets in shadow areas to cool the oranges, skipping the grays entirely.)
YG11, YG61, YG63, YG67
YR00, YR01, YR02, YR04, YR07, YR09 (Yes, I overdid it here--could have gotten by with fewer, but why?)
Black and Gray Copic 0.3 Multiliners
X-Press It Blender Card
That's it--thanks for stopping by!
