Copic Tutorial: Making of Sea Serpent by Dea-89 Copic Tutorial: Making of Sea Serpent by Dea-89
DA doesnt seem to display the full size of the tutorial sometimes. In this case, just click on the title of the picture to reload the page or download!

Also, thanks a lot for the DD! I feel really honored <333



Got asked a couple of times how I shade with Copics... I'm a -digital- artist, so there is still a lot I need to learn with Copics, but this is the technique I use.

The same technique works for trees, clouds, leafs, folds,... basically anything... xD;

Colors used for the entire picture:
BG10
B23
B24
B32
E04
E50
E51
E53
0
White Ink
White Gel-Pen
0,3 Liners in different colors (blue, black, brown and grey)

Hope this explains about how I do things... Have fun everyone =v=/

I'm not sure if I ever will use copic markers but if I do I will be sure to check this out.

I live vicariously through other people, when it comes to copic markers. This is definitely an excellent tutorial, and as someone who has never had the pleasure of using them before, I really feel that I could pick them up and produce something decent, after reading this.

And the last bit about utilizing gel pens... they really are an excellent touch to *any* media. I love them to bits with coloured pencils, and they go great with normal markers and paints! So I can only imagine they're perfect for copics as well!

Yes, gel pens are easy to work with and you can carry them around perfectly. On a picture I want a LOT of details on though, I usually refer to white ink and feathers by now cause you can create a variety of lines/linewidth and using a really good quality ink prevents the color from beneath to shimmer through.
