Hot Copic


Oh what a weekend. Angie's birthday was the 4th, but the partying started on the 3rd and didn't really stop until yesterday. In between then we had 1/4" splinters in palms, twisted ankles, the return of Lumpy, and plenty of Justice League. Then to top it all off I just had a filling replaced this morning. Need another weekend to recuperate, but that's not happening as Angie's off to the beach this coming weekend with some peeps and I'm home with Lilah. My youngest brother will be arriving Saturday with his girlfriend, so I won't totally be solo all weekend, but it won't be a restful one regardless.

Enough belly-aching. Been playing around with the Copic markers I picked up at Heroes Con. Still learning obviously, but I think I'm getting a little better with 'em. Marked up this prelim sketch for my Thing Quickdraw with some decent results.

i think the ink work looks good. what's the diff with copic markers? i looked them up but didn't see anything really.

Heywood Jablomie said...

Yup, they're wishy-washy. The main bone of contention in my study of them is that if you go over an area again it gets darker, so you really gotta think ahead about what you're doing and I sure hate thinking.

Also, thanks for the kind works, McGill. Good to see you around.

The thing I don't like about the Copics is that they look great on laser paper and lousy on Bristol. I experimented with them on an old character sketch I had laying around and was thrilled with the result. Moved on to a finished piece I did on Bristol board and was sorely disappointed. The light/dark effect Christian mentioned. Don't think I'll be buying any more of them. Which is too bad.

If only I could get the slick, smooth effect on Bristol I got on the laser paper. Any suggestions?

Hey Christian,

Great job on this! I love the look you achieved with the markers. Very washy... nice!

I also checked out your pencil work in the posts below. Dude, you can draw! Excellent work! I'll be checking back soon for more eye candy!

Best,
Rich

PS: did you get my emailed response to you?

Christian D. Leaf said...

Thanks for the kind words, Rich. And, yeah, I got your e-mail. Sorry for the delay. I've replied with more apologies.
