This book has made me look at my images before I start coloring, and has taught me how to add dimension to my images by adding shading and highlights in the right place! What

a difference it makes! The book also comes with several light study templates that will help you place the highlights and shadows in the perfect place.

Oh how I need this book! I am getting a little better, but I am not artist for sure! Of course, I believe I can learn, just takes me longer and a little help, so this would be so great to have. It's just what I believe would help me sooo much! Thanks! Leah Ann

ReplyDeleteI echo just what Hoosier Stamper said, plus I cannot afford Copic classes at this time, so this prize is one I'd treasure. If you, as a Certification Instructor, could learn from it, think what I could learn!

ReplyDeleteMy comfort zone does not include coloring because I don't know how to blend, shade and make an image look "real". I only have TWO copic markers, which were given to me by a friend. If I could just get some good insructions, I know that I would embrace this technique on my cardmaking (and buy a whole lot more copics!). So please throw my name into the drawing hat for this fabulous book and I'll keep my fingers crossed.
