AVOIDING A DISASTER! | 3 Marker Challenge | November Copic Colors

  • Published on Nov 27, 2018
  • I want to thank Copic Markers for including me as one of their November Artists. I was challenged to create an illustration using the three colors provided. If you've been around my channel you know I gravitate towards lighter colors and tones, so this was completely out of my comfort zone. If this challenge taught me anything, its that I need to stop letting fear keep me away from darker colors. I need to dive in an practice them!
    Also! IMPORTANT NOTE: I drew/filmed/edited this in the middle of October and I'd been waiting to post with Copic's go-ahead. AND OMG my art style and my experience with Copic Markers has changed so much in that time. I feel like I've learned so much since creating this illustration and that shows in my more recent work. I almost didn't want to post this, but I'm not gonna be embarrassed by what my old art looked like. That's ridiculous. I've improved and I'm proud! :)

    I'm watching this at like 3am, have a blue light filter on my phone, and i actually had to pause, turn my filter off, and rewatch you swatching the markers cause the only one i could tell apart was the brown.
    Incredible 💖😂

    It made me feel so bad watching the coloring and the testing colors because I also hate coloring with colors the same tone! Unless they're bright, which makes it neutral.

    But, you did use it really well!

    Instead of drawing it frontwards, you should have drawn her backwards because you won’t have to draw the face.

    Ok u kinda cheated by using the marker for the shading but still beautiful if the background didn’t have the snowflakes it would kinda look boring to me so glad that u added that over all wonderful masterpiece 👌

  • Alexandra Mach
    Alexandra Mach 24 days ago

    you know how you said that there couldn't be a white line between the hair and the face cuz that would just look weird? I know you already drew the drawing obviously lol but you coud've put maybe a white headband but it would also look a bit weird lol

    this reminds me of your bullet journal girl but with morw dark and primery instead of bright like the pink in this is red and the leafy green here is dark green and the bright-ish brown is well ...brown

    • HoloQueen
      HoloQueen 27 days ago

      so like the bullet journal(oh ye I forgot the new bullet journal) the three main colors are pink,brown,and a leafyish green ,and in here the three main colors (only colors 🙄dumb me)are red,dark brown and dark green. even tho you did the journal after this

    When using copic markers u kinda need line art to make everything fit if you get what I’m saying

  • Allie L
    Allie L 28 days ago

    To get a solid color with no streaks I usually stroke in one direction then the other. Ex: I would color the dress by stroking the same way (vertical) until i finish. I would let it dry for a minute then recolor that same section (dress) in the opposite direction (horizontal). That usually works for me but some alcohol markers can be harder to make a solid color.

  • Connor Marshall

    if you wanted a white line between the face and the hair you could have tried using a halo to make her like an angel so it fits with the holiday theme (we had a little angel decorations so I think that works)

    If you want to get rid of the marker streaks, you should try using x-press it blending card. It’s super smooth and made specifically for copic markers. I have some and it works great. Hope this was helpful!
