Last night I decided to make a simple sketch to test my Copic Markers. I also bought COLLEEN colored pencils to add more color to my experimental sketch since I only bought 10 pieces of it because it was so pricey and I still don’t know if I will like using it.
Thus it began.
I tried making a rough sketch of Zoe Saldana and Sam Worthington xD I’m not really good in making realistic drawings since I usually focus on Manga/Anime style drawings. So I came up with semi-realistic drawing of Sam and Zoe. ^^
I used a drawing waterproof ink in inking my sketch and used it to color Zoe’s hair. After that I scanned it to preserve the “inked finish sketch”.
Then after that I started using E11 (Barley beige) for Sam’s skin. It bled so much and I’m still clueless how to use copic so the skin looked very tan >.< I also used E13 (Light Suntan) and E21 (Baby Skin Pink) for additional depth. Then I used B34 (Manganese Blue) and B34 (Antwerp Blue) for his eyes. It didn’t look very well xD. Then I used my white Colleen colored pencil for the highlights. I used E13 (Light Suntan) for his hair and Colleen’s Maroon color pencil.
I used the same colors for Zoe’s skin but I put a lot of coats to make it look darker than Sam’s skin. I used E11 on her eyes and brow colored pencil in her eyes. I used red color pencil to her lips. I blended the colors on Zoe’s skin quite well compared to Sam.
I still need to practice more to properly use Copic. It’s challenging to use it but I like it! So I will save couple of bucks a gain to buy more colors ^^
PS, I haven’t scanned the finish product because my scanner broke-down >.<
