First try with Copic!!!

Hey!  I just HAD to share this.  I received my Copic markers (that I won!) today in the mail.  I got right down to coloring with them and I wanted you to see the result! 




I will tell you that I have a LOT to learn about these little beauties but, for a first attempt (and no instruction) I feel very satisfied with the result. (And…I think I’m addicted, lol)

I used: YR00, E95, E04, E57, and 0 (colorless blender).

Now that my first image is done I know three things:

1- I am so super pleased with my prize.

2- I can’t wait to color more.

3- I will be owning many more of these babies. :)

Wanna win some of your own?

Go to iCopic Lover’s blog and enter challenge #2, inspired by Super Mario!

And remember…it’s GOOD to be queen.


  1. I saw your link over at iCopic blog. Your coloring is really gorgeous! Beautiful job and I can't believe it's your first time using these! :)

  2. You did an amazing job for a first time! Even for more experienced. If you want another place to peek at some tutorials check out on the home page you can find a series of tutorials over on the right hand side with free images to download.

  3. Congratulations and you are off to a great start! You would think you've been coloring longer and your blending and shading looks great.

    I LOVE my Copics and LOVE to buy from the iCopics, they have excellent service and once you are a GOLD MEMBER, the prices can't be beat!!

    GOOD LUCK and if you ever want to take a class, I highly recommend taking one from Suzanne Dean, at her online classroom, which is at this link -

    Happy Coloring,


Thanks for your comments- I love them!
