So many copic colors go into a single 2″ animal. 14 markers before I’ve even added in shadows. The liner is copic too. It only took me about 20 min to get the basic sketch onto paper but then I transferred it, colored it, and now I’m blogging it.
When doing a commission you need to make sure you add in little personal touches. The right shades of color helps a lot. If you can add in a way they hold themselves or tilt their heads it really makes it read x person or furson.
It’s healthy, really.
Done in copic marker, liner, & paint. Texture can be a tricky thing. It’s seen in the outline, the color, the light, and the saturation.

Here is a Gerbil Sunday for your weekend.
This is done in copic markers, liners, and paint. When working in brown you need to make sure the marker doesn’t have to much pink or it’ll resemble flesh and ewwwww.

I used copic markers, liners, and a bit of white copic paint. This little fruit bat is after this tasty fruit tart. I had a bleed over problem with the red but was able to push it back into it’s boarders with the blender pen (which is badly misnamed).
Available in bookmark and 5×7 prints.
I started using copic markers because most badges being sold at conventions were marker and not pencil. At first I was really bad at it. The colors were great but I got streaks and my colors weren’t blending. Then I took the first copic marker class. Now I love um. Don’t get me wrong, I love my color pencils too, they aren’t going away.
This is one of my original drawings on strathmore Bristol with copic (mostly sketch with some original square) markers. The outlining is copic multiliner .5 & .05. The white dot of eye shine is the copic opaque white but I frequently just use a paint pen. It’ll be framed in a mat with a 5×7 opening.
