Three cheers… or three peeps?

I’ve got a new video out this morning!

Backyard Birds uses Copic Markers, Staedtler Triplus Pens, and Prismacolor Soft Core Colored Pencils.

Scroll down for the complete supply list + a printable guide for each bird.

Depth & Dimension are buzz words in the Copic Marker and colored pencil communities. Everyone wants more depth, we all want more dimension.

What we’re really saying is that we want to color with greater realism. And in our wildest dreams, we want people to mistake our coloring for a photograph…
