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! :)

    It's absolutely beautiful! For future reference you can use complimentary colors to shade so you could have the green to shade her dress.

    I actually found the Posca pens in what feels like the only art shop in Teesside (i live in the UK), but out of all the sized they only had black, then the only white they had was in a chunky marker. I was really upset because i've seen Waffles use posca all the time and it workes better than most of the white pens i have, even normal stationary white out pens.

    With Alcohol based markers you can take some rubbing alcohol and a paintbrush to blend them together or remove streaks.

    Isn’t it cheating cause she used the pencil, posca pen, and more copic markers for shading?

  • Kimberlin Hill

    The best tip I have for coloring in really large sections with copic is to do circular motions!! Just tiny circles and quickly almost completely removes the streaks in my use of the markers! Hope this helps someone (:

  • annachronistic

    To avoid streaks try using small circular strokes or to incorporate the uneven coloring to add to the motion of the piece. This looks great.

    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!

    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 👌

    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

    • HoloQueen
      HoloQueen 2 months 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 2 months 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)
