I'm trying to work on some more marker art.  I specifically want to try pieces involving different lighting.  I work with Copics, so if anyone has any cool tips, tutorials, or videos I can watch (regarding markers+lighting) to get my learn on a little quicker, I'd greatly appreciate it.  Worked on one for a little bit today (my E000 ran out and I had to run all over town to find another because I didn't realize it was close to drying out and never ordered a refill), and thought I'd ruined it by treating the weird lighting like I was painting it with markers.  Kept going anyway, whipped out the blending marker, and I think it's saved!  Will post when it's done.

I havent worked with markers in FOREVER! I really miss it. One weird thing I would do is when i wanted to blend a color, I would take the darker color adn rub it on the tip of the lighter colored marker and draw with it till it faded back to its regular light color, I don't know if this is a GOOD tip but I always liked the effect, fun to try anyway, oh and getting a blender marker helps. OH and always draw the LIGHTEST colors first, then build up with the darker ones. I found that ended up looking the best?

I should try that blending method :)
My blending copic JUST ran out!! I had to switch to my giant, smelly Prismacolor blender. I think it worked? But it was pretty hard to tell right away because it saturated my paper so much >_<
I always go with the lightest color. Someday I'll have the foresight to decide which areas I want to leave just white, so I don't have to waste any color...
Thanks Jessi!
