For a while I've been seeing the ridiculously talented Eric Canete use COPICS to some amazing effects and I got inspired (jealous) enough to try my hand at them. Check out some of Canete's amazing color pieces like this, this, and this.
I sketched out these two things quickly at 2.5" x 2.5" on a piece of bristol vellum with a very light pencil, then the markers and some brushpen. Using the markers is a good way to learn more about colors and color relationships, something I think I could always be better at. Even though it didn't go at all according to plan and I kind of hate how they turned out, I decided to post them anyway. If anything, it will motivate me to get something better posted up here by the end of the week.
