I always add colored pencil accents to my Copic projects

Always.

Let's talk today about whether it makes a difference.

Or maybe not.

How about if I just let the photographs speak?

Here is a very nice Copic project:

Not bad. Nothing super wrong about it. Gets the job done.

Here it is with colored pencil details:

By the way...

The Ginko Leaves image is part of my online beginner level Marker Painting Foundations course. Yes, that's a beginner level image, part of the blending lesson in week 3.

This isn't a class that teaches you trendy techniques like colorless blender texture or ink transfer. There's a ton of that stuff floating around on the internet for free, so why pay for it?

Instead, students receive a solid grounding in color theory, color sculpting, and how to develop depth for convincing realism. There's nothing trendy about this information; artists have been using it for years and now I'll help you apply it to your marker projects!
