Shhhhhh, I’m hunting apocalyptic shtuff part 3 #art #copic

Ok, I know there are not really weekend posts around here… but I can’t let that last picture stand… no idea what is up with Laura’s phone… or if she took it through a bottle of scotch… but it looks a heck of a lot better than that. So here is a copy fresh off the scanner.

Shhhhhh, I’m hunting apocalyptic shtuff part 2 #art #copic

I posted the line art of this yesterday.  Then I transfered it to strathmore Bristol vellum 500 series. It’s my general paper of choice when working with copic markers.  Copic markers have such nice deep colors. If you pick three markers with the same first number and the second numbers all about 2 apart it’s an easy way to blend colors and get nice shadows.  I used so much g99 to get that color that at one point the marker nib was white again. I never suspected I’d use so much dark green in my life.
