Thank you so much for the help! I have a bunch of copics, but I'm so scared to use them and mess up.

They are very difficult to mess up, unless you press too hard. And even then you can buy a replacement worst case scenario. :)

It's not the markers I'm scared of (well, as much :lol:), it's the picture I'm worried about.

I hate that copics are so expensive. I need more blues and greens but just can't afford it. I like your tutorial. I feel a bit better after reading this. I get nervous putting dark colors down first but that's what I've always been told to do... so I just went light to dark in secret *sssssh* Nice to know I'm not the only one.
Tutorial is so simple but SO effective. Wonderful! This is great reference to get started. It should come as an insert with any pack of Copics you get.

Prismacolors are still effective- although not as awesome- if you have those. I've found they can substitute pretty well in some cases for Copics colors you don't have.

If you put down your darkest colors first, then your stuck with that color. If you go with your lightest colors you can incrementally alter the shade until you get the exact one you want. You also run the risk of discoloring your light nibs (the marker part) by trying to blend too dark. Everyone has their own way, but it just seems like common sense to me. Glad you liked it!

I've always had a hard time getting the prismacolors to blend well with the Copics but I didn't even think of subbing colors I didn't have hmmmm. I'll have to do some experimenting then. Thanks!

I've barely used markers yet, but I'm so glad I finally understood how to actually blend two colors! Thank you for sharing =)
