Copic coloring is very fun! but it's hard to find good tutorials for learning to color with them.
Here is a simple step by step Instructable introduction on coloring.
other brands of markers can be used but copics are my favorite.
Step 1: Supplies You Will Need
- 12pc or more set of Sketch Copic markers ( I use 36pc Ciao Set E)
- It is your choice to use a coloring picture or draw your own(I prefer to draw my own)on cardstock paper.
Do not hold the marker in one place for more than a few second or the ink will run.
Step 2: Shading the Skin
I start with shading the skin using YR000.
Mark lightly around the edges, for example, under the hair.
Step 3: Color the Skin
Using R000 color in the rest of the skin.
Step 4: Hair !
Find where you want the shine on the hair then start with the lightest color of brown to second to darkest. Use the darkest brown underneath neck, chin and in the shade.
Pictures are in order and can be used while coloring.
Step 5: Shading Clothes
Using marker C-2 or a light gray shade under arms and areas you want to be darker( as shown in pictures).
Step 6: Coloring the Clothes
Pick the color you want the clothes, lightly color over then do it a second time if necessary
Step 7: Coloring Eyes, Rose and Blush
Start with lightest to darkest then color a light layer over the top with the lightest color to blend colors together.
To add blush find the lightest pink, mark a light line under the eyes, then blend the colors together by using skin color over top.

Enjoy and have fun!!!
