Before and After Copic Class

After taking the Intermediate Copic class, I wanted to compare an image I colored before and after the class to see if I was able to achieve a deeper, more dimensional image. I chose the birthday girl from Saturated Canary. Here's the original card I posted (original blog post):

I like the colors on this image and I still think it works well with the theme of this card, but I wanted to try and add some depth.

Here's the image I colored today (realized after I posted I forgot to color her tongue, geez.):

I can't say this image is "better" than the first, but it definitely has more depth, especially in the skirt and ribbon. I still have lots to learn (#1, don't be afraid to grab the darker markers), but I'll get there.

And yes, I used all of these markers to color this image.

If I had to pick one item out of my craft room I love the most, it would have to be my Copics. They are my "precious."

Don't forget to visit my Etsy shop (link at the top of the page).

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting coloring.
