March Alcohol Marker Classes - Copic & Spectrum Noir

Hi Everyone!

Here are a few more samples for some of my March Classes. I am so into flowers right now and my students seem to love them. These images are both by Impression Obsession. Are they great or what?

I had fun adding a bit of texture to these flowers. I didn't blend them as much as I normally do and I love the effect.

Tip: To leave more texture - blend less and let each layer dry a bit more than when trying to get a nice smooth blend of colors.

Tip: Note that I put the highlight in the center of many of these petals. That is to show that the petal is bending in the middle causing the light to hit the center of the petal stronger than other areas of the petal. Highlight is often shown only on the tips of flowers, this shows a variation on where to put highlight on flower petals.

Enjoy your day

COPIC: R21, R22, R24, G20, G82, G85, And a bright & dull yellow like Y15 & YR24
SPECTRUM NOIR: Reds CR1, CR3, CR7, DG1, DG2, DG3, CT4, GB5
