COLORING WITH COPICS- TUTORIAL

Hello! I apologize for the delay in posting. I have been spending extra time on my Spiritual Life, more time in prayer and soaking in GOD's Word. GOD IS GOOD!
Now on to my tutorial...
#1 Question - Should I do this in WHITE or BLACK ink? I want it to be clearly visible. If you have a hard time reading this, would you rather I type it seperately and NOT on the images?
#2 Question - Are these tutorials helpful? Would you like MORE? And what would you like me to do Tutorials on?
















Here is a PDF File with the information typed out
My plan is to do MORE tutorials on still life, people, etc. as well as using different tools with and without your Copics.
Your feedback really helps me know what and how to do these. I REALLY appreciate it!
Have a blessed day!
Chrissy D

This was very informative (considering I did not know what copics where). I found the white writing ok till the last block. I for one would certainly appreciate more tutorials, on all aspects of painting, colouring etc.
Many thanks
Pinky

Thank you so much for this tutorial - it is what I really needed - I have been trying to work with Copics but have had a hard time getting everything to look just right and I know this is going to help. I hope you are well and am sorry I haven't written in a while to say HEY !! I have been visiting though :)
Promise to write more often. Talk to you soon !!!!!

Christi said...

Awesome tutorial Chris! Everything looks great to me! :)

Hi Christi, These tutorials are very helpful. It might be easier to see if the writing was separate, under the image instead of on top of it. There seems to be a slight glare from the photo making it slightly hard to read. Also, maybe a list of the Copics you used or they be turned up so the name and code number could be easily seen. I know it takes some time to do all this and it is certainly appreciated to have this resource to go to. Doing it in PDF format might be beneficial too. Thank you!!

Great tutorial Chrissy! I can't wait to get my Copics and learn to play with them.

Stac said...

Very, very pretty. Have you ever used Shimmerz paints on top of your Copics? It's beautiful!

Chris. WONDERFUL tutorial. I love everything and learned alot. My question to you is on the "light source" so that you know where to put your highlights. Maybe you can cover that alittle sometime. Otherwise it is perfect. Thank you so much for taking time to teach us.

Thanks, Chrissy~this was so helpful! I didn't know about using the blender to pick up color from other pens. I'll try this next time I color. thanks again!

I LOVE any and all tutorials on Copics!!! LOL I'm still so new at using them and blending them well!! I had no troubles with the white font either!! Your roses are just stunning!!

Hi Chrissy,
Any tutorials would be greatly appreciated! Thank you for this one. I found it hard to read and wonder if writing it separately rather on the picture would be better.
Many thanks!

Hi Chrissy - great tutorial, always need colouring ones. Would love to see more in depth (whilst being simple still) of where and how to place shadows and darker areas as really struggle with this. Am not arty at all so need help so my colouring doesnt just look like a childs.

Cheers Lisa

Thanks for the great tutorial! I did find the last picture hard to read. The white words on the white background did not stand out enough to read :(
Otherwise it was very helpful.
Thank You for sharing with us!!

Hi Chris,
great tutorial! I am beginning to wonder if I will EVER be that good using my copics. I keep telling myself I just need more of them to be better. Does that sound like a true crafter. Keep those tutorials coming.
