Free Digi Club: "Baby Pumpkin" a Free Copic Friendly Digi Stamp for Coloring

 
"Baby Pumpkin" a free digi stamp for subscribers of the Free Digi Club at VanillaArts.com
 

A Touch of Fall Color...

"Baby Pumpkin" is my new Copic coloring image, free to subscribers of my Free Digi Club from now until November 2nd.

Absolutely free.

Yep. No strings, no spam. Just a versatile coloring image that I'd like to share with you.

Subscribers to the FDC receive 1 free image every month, delivered right to your email inbox.

My digital stamps are ideal for Copic marker coloring. That means the objects are full of wide open spaces to blend. There are no distracting texture marks!

I want your coloring to shine through, not my drawing skills.

That's what the "Vanilla" in Vanilla Arts Co. is all about. I give you the vanilla base, you add the hot fudge, the sprinkles, the whipped cream, and the Copic ink.

Join the Marker Painting Basics class on Patreon!

Every month, I use the free FDC image and build an entire 30-60 minute coloring lesson out of it.

Basics classes are perfect for beginner or casual level colorers or self taught intermediate level marker artists who feel like they've missed out on some of the key elements of art instruction.

"Baby Pumpkin" is 57 minutes of instruction which includes interesting sidebar discussions on backgrounds and shadows.

Plus one technique of the month video, breaking down an important skill or method to help you improve the way you go about coloring.

You choose which level of support is right for you.

 

And hey, email a .jpg photo of your project!

I love seeing what people do with their Free Digi Club images!!!

Happy coloring!

Color Science: Complex Color Runs with Copic Markers

 

Beautiful autumn color!

Join me for Copic Club classes in November when we'll be tackling the science of color.

We'll look at a complex color run that spans the color wheel from green through purple and I'll teach you the secrets behind developing jaw dropping color from combinations that usually result in mud.

 

supplies?

Copic Club is designed for beginning to intermediate level colorers who do not have large collections of Copic markers.

All Copic Club classes use supplies from a single kit. I've chosen 42 markers plus some extra pens and accessories. ALL Copic Club classes will draw from that kit's contents, it won't be every marker for every class but a small assortment from that master kit.

I've met students with massive marker collections full of colors they hardly use. It happens when you take multiple classes with multiple instructors, each instructor works off of a different supply list. The more classes you take, the more infrequent-use markers you collect. Who needs that kind of madness?

I've developed a kit of starter colors that I guarantee will cover a wide variety of images! I'm so confident that this is the ideal beginner assortment that I've challenged myself to stick to nothing but the kit every Friday for a year!

Remember When sells both the kit or the kit contents a la carte- so you can purchase all at once or purchase as each item appears on a class supply list.

How deeply and how quickly you invest in Copic Markers is all up to you!
