We asked a selection of artists to create with only E37, R37, & G99 for November's #CopicColors. Here's what they came up with.
When Kerrie first saw the #CopicColors for November, she instantly thought of winter foliage - pinecones, holly leaves, evergreen... things that are still beautiful even when the weather is growing cold.
For November's #CopicColors, Ark tried creating a piece that would let the colors work together naturally and thus thought including nature was the way to go. She started by drafting the piece out in pencil and then laid down washes of color with marker. Later, she came back into the piece with black ink to add some weight the my lines and to make the colors pop.
Annie Chen has been exploring the subject of food through her art for a while now, and she's always loved the rich, earthy browns that complementary colors like red and green can make together. When Annie saw the November #CopicColors, she immediately thought “chocolate!” She mainly used sepia to render the chocolate cake, and the red and green to depict the dripping dark chocolate glaze.
This piece titled "Supreme Thunder" was created by Brianna Garcia for November's #CopicColors. What have you been creating using only E37, R37, & G99?
Once Maroune, a.k.a. The Sketch Monkey, received November's #CopicColors, he immediately thought of plants and Christmas colors.
For November's #CopicColors, Mike drew a cartoony dog pawing mud off himself. The triad of warm, rustic Copic colors inspired him to draw something earthy and natural.⠀
Mike is also our #CopicColors featured artist for the month of November! We asked him about working in animation, his career path, and advice to young professionals wanting to pursue a career in animation field. Read the full interview here.
As someone who is still new to using markers, Rin Din tends to gravitate towards pastel colors that she can layer up or even paint over in case she messes up. "November's #CopicColorsforced me to face my marker fears," she said, "and I feel so much stronger because of it." ⠀
