I've been playing around with my Copic markers and trying to get down the shading. It is trickier than I thought! I think it would help if I had more variation in the same color families. I've been using the Bristol smooth paper which I think is perfect for these markers. They leak through, but I kind of like how it looks on the back! So many yummy colors to choose from. Dick Blick is having a sale this weekend! Guess where I'll be??
