Copic Adventures!

My sister got me some new Copic markers for Christmas!

So I decided to finally have a go at drawing and coloring something beyond the basic shading I did in Inktober.

I decided on a basic self-portrait.

Not terrible for a first attempt. I rushed through the drawing so I could get to the coloring.

The drawing sucks, but the coloring isn’t terrible. I’m especially pleased with the shading on the hat.

Things I learned: you cannot erase pencil after using these markers. Note to do that going forward next time.

Doing the edges first and then blocking in results in inadvertent rim shading.

Learn how to draw clothes. It is NOT all cake once you get the body drawn.

Also realized I unconsciously avoided hands and feet, so I need to make a point not to Liefeld any more.
