We asked 12 artists to create with only RV32, RV34, and E74 for February's #CopicColors. Here's what they came up with.
Chihiro is a master of blending with Copics, as displayed in her piece for February's #CopicColors.
"When I saw the colors, I immediately thought of bubblegum and chocolate, so I incorporated those into the drawing. Since there was no really dark color, I used hatching and cross-hatching with my Copic Multiliner to darken some areas. E74 is my #1 favorite Copic color, so I enjoyed using it, and RV34 is in my top 5. It's my go-to pink!"
Her piece is called "Last Hope," and Audra is known for drawing many fantastical women (sometimes men) in a surreal manner.

February 1st was a big day for Samantha, as she announced her upcoming book release, so she chose to celebrate this day by using February's Copic Colors.
When limited to only three colors, Mary had to come to terms with the fact that her shadows would never be the blackest black. However, she said, "then I realized how fun mixing the colors can be and how to pile them on to find new levels of color."⠀
Jonathan Gordon specializes in realistic portraits with Copic markers. We were thrilled to have him participate this month with a portrait of his wife, Niamh.
Callie was inspired by this month's #CopicColors to create a retro-modern vibe by drawing a floral pattern on the skin of her subject, her friend Priscilla. She achieved this texture by using a watercolor paper.
Patrick is an Industrial designer and uses sketching as a tool to work through designing products, just like this phone case he designed with February's #CopicColors. "Whether it's the overall architecture of a case, or the color, material, and finish of the product," he says, "sketching is an important aspect of my job." ⠀
When Melody was trying to decide what to create for this month’s colors, her thought process was as follows: Pink, brown, and February = Valentine’s Day = romance = marble statues = marble statues embracing = make it humorous = but also use the three colors = pink marble statues eating chocolate = pink marble statues staring lovingly at each other but in reality longing for their chocolates.
Morgan had her eye on drawing this building in Poland for quite some time, and February's #CopicColors were the perfect fit. She said, "I really love how much contrast and depth you can achieve with only three Copic colors!"
Jane was inspired by seasonal blooms and a space made by friends on Instagram to create this piece featuring February's #CopicColors - just in time for Valentine's Day.⠀
Tabitha created this itty bitty, whimsical card to represent family love.
