Here's something a little different today! I don't know about you guys, but one of my favorite pastimes is merely looking at other people's Copic swatches. Sometimes it's not even for the sake of planning which colors I would like to purchase next, I just like colors, dude. I thought I would make my own Copic swatch chart, in case there's anyone like me out there. It's not very pretty, it's not even on a clean page, but it gets the job done. I didn't apply any filters (ofc) But I did brighten the image slightly as my room is super shadowy and spooky at all times (and the one lamp I have is pretty yellow), so hopefully it's slightly more accurate...? I've also been thinking about combining Inktober (yes!) with Huevember this year, and thus attempted making a ~31-hue color wheel with my Copics... it's hard. It's really hard. Strange that my most difficult-to-use marker, RV04, ended up being the MVP here and taking part in what feels like half of the entire wheel. But yeah, I really need some more RVs/pinks. Would really love some Barbie hot pinks and pastel pinks that don't feel like highlighters. Also, word of advice: if you're just starting out collecting Copic markers... don't buy both BG13 (Mint Green) and BG15 (Aqua)... you don't need both. They are the same marker, essentially. If you see a difference, you're freaking imagining it, haha. Even Copic markers have a couple "dupes" or colors that are so close together that there is little to no discernible difference and I highly recommend doing your research before you buy.
As per my previous post, I had an idea to showcase @gorillaz characters with anime-inspired duds. This is one idea for Russell Hobbs via #dbz Krillin. Decided to color it up tonight via live feed streaaaamz.. dunno if I can IGTV it but I’ll try to keep for posterity. To all who tuned in tonight, heartfelt thank you and hope I taught y’all something 😜 Thanks @thepepperedcat for the heads up about Instagram strats and making me want to impulsively pop this off and get it done legit enjoy my #javcast#jvnqoarts#fanart#anime_fanart #traditional_art #inked_pencils #copicsketchmarkers
