Skin tones with Copics!

Rene shares a basic step by step tutorial for coloring skin using Copic Markers

Rene's Tilda Christmas card

   Copic Markers - E0000, E000,  E00, E01, E02,  E11

Begin by coloring the center of the cheeks using E02

  Using E01, color over the E02 and out a little farther

Shade the perimeter of the face using E00

 Blending into the E00 and cheek colors using E000

Blend all three with E0000

Line sides of face with E11

Go over E11 and slightly beyond with E00

Add more cheek color E02, then E01

Blend E00 and cheek colors with E000

Along hairline and sides of face with E11 again...make this line thinner than first time

 Go over with E00 again

Blend one more time with E000

Add a very fine line of E11 along the hairline

 The finished card
