Copic Marker Walkthrough

Lately many people have been asking me how to create a space nebula effect with markers. The process is relatively simple, but it’s not easy to explain simply with words alone. So in this walkthrough I’m going to show step by step how it’s done.

First things first. This is the list of supplies I used. 
-Strathmore Mixed Media 5.5 x 8.5 sketchbook
-Pink and White Colored Pencil
-White Gel Pen
-13 Copic Marlers (12 colors and a colorless blender, which I’ll explain how to use later.) I should point out now that you aren’t required to use the exact brands I used to create the drawing. 
I use these materials because they’re what I’m most accustomed to.The techniques I demonstrate can be done with whatever markers and paper you’re comfortable using. What matters is that you understand the technique because when you do you can apply it to anything.

I begin by making some abstract cloud-like shapes with E50 (Eggshell), which is a very faint yellow. There’s no pencil sketch here because space nebula (as well as atmospheres and natural landscapes) can be easily created by layering abstract shapes on top of each other.

Using Y21 (Buttercup Yellow) and G20 (Wax White) I basically repeat the first step. Still working very light. I realized after the fact that Buttercup Yellow was a bit too intense for this drawing so I stopped using it there. This is why it’s important to have a sheet of scratch paper nearby to test out colors before you apply them. Because once they’re down, they’re DOWN.

Next I use R20 (Blush) to start defining the shapes of the gases in the nebula. Then I go back to Eggshell. It’s probably hard to see what I did here, but I used the brush tip end (on its side) to swipe inward, from all sides, towards the center of the nebula. The reason being is that the brush tip is more saturated than the chisel tip. This helps intensify the lighter shade of yellow that’s already on the paper. If also makes crossfading colors easier because the sideways swipe motion creates a soft gradient that tapers towards the edge. I’ll use this technique multiple times throughout the drawing..

Now with B000 (Pale Porcelain Blue) I layer over the gases in the center while working my way outwards. Again I’m pulling my strokes inward because I know the surrounding space will be deep blue and I want the transition to be a smooth one.

With E04 (Lipstick Natural) I’m finally beginning to put in some of the darker colors. At this point the drawing sill looks like a random mess. Sometimes you’ll get the urge to rush and make the drawing look like something, but you have to be patient and take your time.

Using B32 (Pale Blue) and R20 again, I’m going around the nebula detailing and adding layers of color. I’m also leaving some white spaces which will later become stars. My Pale Blue is actually beginning to dry out, but here in able to make that work to my advantage because it streaks from the chisel end create a dry brush effect which helps add to the glow. The nebula portion of the drawing is beginning to take shape.

Working my way around the perimeter with Pale Blue. From here you can see the importance of working light to dark. Build your colors gradually and avoid the urge to go too dark too early. You want to have room for error and you don’t want create more work for yourself.

With B04 (Tahitian Blue) I fill the surrounding space completely. I’m not too concerned with trying to get an even layer because I know that I’m going to add darker shades of blue next.

Here I used B00 (Frost Blue) to start cleaning up some of the edges around the nebula. I also used BG15 (Aqua) to add some pockets of color in the surrounding space.

Adding darker layers to surrounding space with B14 (Light Blue), which surprisingly a pretty dark shade of blue. Then I used B97 (Night Blue) to add the last layer, which is the darkest layer in this drawing.

Now it’s time for the final details. 0 is the Colorless Blender. But it’s not necessarily used to blend. Instead it almost acts like an eraser because the ink pushes colors away when you put it down. Because of this I generally don’t use it. But it works great for things like water, landscapes and atmospheres. Or in this case, space in which I used it to pull out highlights in and around the nebula. The colorless blender is odd, but it occasionally has its uses.

This is the final step and my personal favorite. Highlights and small details. I used the pink and white pencils to color around the edges of the brightest stars to make them look as if they’re glowing. Then I used the a white gel pen to color inside those stars to make them shine and pop off the page.

And here’s the finished drawing. This was hastily put together, but hope y'all found this to be informative and easy to follow. I’ll try to do more marker walkthroughs on different subjects in the future. Until then thanks for all your support and encouragement!

♡ Trying Stillman & Birn’s Beta sketchbook with a little Revolutionary Girl Utena fanart ♡
It handles light watercolour work pretty alright! The paper didn’t buckle, though I did actively attempt to avoid working too much in my usual wet-on-wet technique. Copics, obviously, bled through a little but not as much as I expected. Again, I held back from using them as heavily as I’m used to in order to blend like I do on marker paper. Overall though not a bad sketchbook. I might look into getting their 8 x 10. This is their 5.5" x 8.5".

chungle-nugget  asked:

Okay. Okay so. I clicked one of the "suggested for you" things after reblogging a Yuri on Ice post and it brought me here and I was like, ooh, this super talented person is making a Yuri on Ice doujin? Sign me the fuck up?? and then and then and then I looked over at your sidebar thing and you are also the author of TJ and Amal???? which I read two years ago and loved so much that I reread it basically every few months???? I can't believe this????? I'm really freaking out??? Hi?????

ahhh hi! :D  Thank you for enjoying TJ & Amal!

And yep, I’m working on a Yuri on Ice doujin with another webcomic artist (I’m not sure if they want me to use their main pen name or not), and we’re hoping to put it out in late February. The title is “Pair Skate” and it will be PDF-only (but printable at 5.5 x 8.5 inches), around 20-24 pages, and for 18+ only. 

Been using it as a way to try out new + faster page production techniques, and it’s fun so far!

(edit to add: I vastly prefer doing sketches/tight pencils on paper rather than digitally, so I’ve been doing that and then using my Surface Pro’s camera to snap a picture, then inking over THAT in Manga Studio. It works really well so far!)

anonymous asked:

Hi, I looked through your faq and blog and couldn't find anything on the matter, so I hope I'm not bothering you with repetitive questions! Your traditional sketches are so lovely, and I was just wondering what sketchbook you use?

I use a Canson Artist Series Hardbound, 5.5″ x 8.5″ sketchbook.  You can find them on Utrecht for about 9 dollars.  I don’t really recommend the size, it always feels half an inch too small, but it’s relatively good quality paper for cheap.
