Video Tutorial: Drawing Bubbles with Copics

It has been a while since I did a video, and I was feeling the itch! This week it’s a short and sweet instructional on how to draw bubbles in water using Copic markers. If you want to practice along, I used: Copic markers: BG10, BG34, B00, B02, G12, and later BG70 Colorless Blender (any… Continue reading Video Tutorial: Drawing Bubbles with Copics

Copic Alternative? #coloring Markers by Art Alternatives Review

Here we are, a day late but maybe only, like, a nickel short. I’ve been sick the last couple days, so this was slow in the making (I recorded it about a week or so ago, but hadn’t edited any of the video). But, at least it’s done, and I haven’t broken my weekly updating streak!… Continue reading Copic Alternative? #coloring Markers by Art Alternatives Review

La Couronne des Champignons, Art Video

I don’t know if you have noticed, but recently there have been some really creative crowns out there. In particular, I’m kind of loving the Mermaid Crown trend. If you haven’t caught it, here’s what I’m talking about: Gorgeous, right? Well, these beautiful things got me thinking: what other things could become a crown?

Three Marker Challenge

I’ve debated posting this or not, as there were some problems during video capture and so it’s not as complete as I’d like. I waffled around about it for a bit, but ultimately decided that it wasn’t worthless, and is reasonable enough content to start with. I’ll likely do some more of these (with better… Continue reading Three Marker Challenge
