ARC Review: Manga Artists’ Copic Marker Coloring Techniques

Manga Artists Copic Marker Colouring Techniques

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I’ve just gotten into alcohol markers (though I haven’t bought my first Copic yet) and I hoped this book would give some tips and insights into how best to use them. And it did – but its usefulness was somewhat lessened (for me) because each color was referred to only with the Copic numbering system.

It would have been easy to make it accessible to those who don’t have those specific colors by saying something like: “Use copic #xxxx or your lightest warm gray” rather than simply “use copic #xxxx.”

And yes, I get that Copic is in the title, but still.

I loved the illustrations showing different styles and techniques, and I definitely learned some tips I will be trying out immediately.
