"Hudson the Bear" is my new Copic coloring image, free to subscribers of my Free Digi Club from now until February, 2017.

Yes indeedie-do, a completely free image for you to color.

Subscribers to the FDC receive one 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, the Copic ink, and the Christmas cheer.

Marker Painting workshops: learn to use the Flick stroke with Copic Markers

Everybody talks about the flick stroke...

You can't spend 10 minutes looking at Copic on the internet without stumbling across a reference to flicking.

But here's the problem- instructors and bloggers don't seem to agree on what a flick is and how to do it.

Really?

Really. It's likely in the top ten things that marker bloggers blog about and if I had a Twinkie for every different explanation I've seen...

Well, I'm not sure what I'd do with a three story high pile of Twinkies... but you get the idea.

 

Join me for a deep dive look at the Marker Painting flick technique

What a flick is, what it looks like, how to do it, when to do it...

This isn't just a passing glance at flicking! I even get into maximizing your wrist anatomy to make the best flick possible.

This online course is perfect for:

  • complete beginners

  • self taught colorers who feel as if they've accidentally missed key information

  • long time colorers who still encounter problems with blending, shading, or developing convincing depth
