For the majority of my covers, I use Copic markers to color. Copics are light-fast, alcohol markers... not unlike a classic school marker, but higher quality. I prefer Copic over other brands primarily for a few reasons: Variable tips (markers, fine, brush, etc), better blending, and they can be refilled!

Copics also guarantee that if you buy Y00 yellow, and then buy another down the line, the colors will match. I've bought the same marker color from other brands and had them not match. I will use other brands here and there for very specific colors or effects, but Copic is 99% of my marker work.

It fills his lungs, pushing out the anxiety for a moment and replacing it with a numbness that will later give way to nausea. Still, the consequences will never outweigh the pain of those worst moments, or at least so he tells himself. He pictures hims
