How about a little Copic Love for this blog hop? This is what I have been working on recently, lots of color studies for the photo tutorials over at Copic In the Craft room! Did you know that I create a new video and photo tutorial that are available free to everyone at the Copic In The Craft Room Facebook page? Here are some quick peeks into some of the art I have created for the photo color comparisons.

Every week I have compares all the natural blending groups in one Copic color family. I have a few more weeks left and I will have them all covered.

On the video front we have really focused in on simple shading with natural blending groups and even one marker shading. Here is a pile of a few of those as well.
