Super Fun with Copics!

Hello Copic fans!

My name is Jane, a Copic colour artist from the UK and one of the new members joining the Copic Europe Design team.
I've been using Copic markers since 2010 and I look forward to sharing my work, hints and tips with you!

To get things started I thought I'd create something using one of my favourite techniques:
No-lines Colouring

Super Boy - Whimsy Stamps

Hints & Tips:

In order to create a no-lines colouring you will need to stamp your image using a much paler coloured ink, I used Memento Angel Pink.

 I would also recommend that you stamp your image in your usual black ink on a scrap piece of paper for reference purposes - as you colour you will find that some of the pale lines will disappear and you will need to keep referring to the black image so you don't colour the wrong bit.  
Trust me, doing this makes the technique much easier!!


As you can see you will end up with a much softer looking image.

Well that's about it for now, 
I hope you've enjoyed reading my first post!!
