When I first decided to try Copics, I had such a tough time deciding what to buy. I must have read a hundred tips before I took the plunge. Basically, the following are the Copic markers colours : [B- Blue] [BG- Blue Green] [BV- Blue Violet] [G- Green] [YG- Yellow Green] [Y- Yellow] [YR- Yellow Red] [R- Red] [RV- Red Violet] [V- Violet] [E- Earth] [C- Cool Gray] [N- Neutral Gray] [T- Toner Gray] [W- Warm Gray]. I buy mostly the Sketch markers, and the colours and numbers are labeled on the tip of the caps. If you would like to know more about the Copics colour chart and family, please click here.
I thought I'd show you my Copics collection :) I have collected over 200+ markers and store them in jars so I can easily move them around or pick some colours that I want to use - I colour while watching the tv most days.
Here are some of my favourites, and this would be my recommendation to those who would like to start with Copics.
|These greens are my favourite, I love some of the YG combination as well|
|These are my favourite pinks - the little Ciao in the photo is RV10|
|These are my favourites for backgrounds and skies|
|My favourite blue range - great for colouring jeans|
|I love the R30 series (I use them all the time) and also the R80's|
|I love so many of the E series but these are my favourites, the 2 Ciao markers are E93 & #95.|
|Here, I just added E13 to the angel, just on the forehead, neck and hands as shown|
|Then I blended E13 with a E01 the next lighter marker|
|Using E50, I picked up the pink R20 and coloured the cheeks|
|Then, I used E50 to blend everything, adding a little of E01 for areas where I need a little more shadowing|
|Add E99 as shown|
|Add E25 and extend the strokes a little further|
|Add E21 and blend the colours|
|Blend a little more with E50, and colour his mouth with R20. Then I added some BG10 to his wings|
|Added BG10, BG000 and the Colourless blender to the wings and his tunic and shoes. I added BG02 to the corners of his eyes.|
|The little Angel|
