Simply awesome. Some people still think using markers only results in childish drawings.

Thank you so much for thinking so, my dear! :thanks:
I'ts true ^ _ ^;; I've even heard professors tell me things like "I can't understand how you can stand to use markers. They're such an unforgiving medium." Ppl are just ridiculous sometimes XD

i love copic markes as a medium most. But I stop using them because in my country the got very expensive. The Varoius Ink costs about 11-12$ for just one bottle.
sorry, that got nothing to do with your art xD

Your welcome. I wanted to ask something. Me and my friends are trying to do a comic but we have no idea how to start a script. How do you go about writing it? I'm not a very good writer and I'm not sure how much I should write for a first page of panels. ^_^

Hmmm...that's a good questions actually!
I have my own way of writing for my manga, but everyone has their own style.
You can always write it out in script form like follows:


Tim: Hey...seriously...who ate my mango

Jon- (looks uneasy) Um..mango...?

Tim: (looks suspiciously at Jon) Dude...you know which mango.

-Jon makes his way out of the room. Tim looks pissed.


LOL Pretty basic, but you'll get your ideas down quickly and there's no extra reading to get through :nod:
I hoe this helps! :heart:

Thank. You. 

I have an entire box of copics I was gifted that I haven't used yet.
So far it's been an interesting trial-and-error session, but hopefully this will work too.

Again, thank you so much.

I hope that this will give you some guidance and will make using Copics so much more enjoyably! :heart: Like all things, trial and error is just a part of the learning process, but learning can be both frustration and FUN! :D So enjoy the journey and feel free to ask me anything :heart:

Oh my gosh thank you so much for posting this! I use to have Copic markers but I never really knew how to use them so they just sat there at my desk collecting dust. Now I plan on getting some new Copics in the near future because of you and you wonderful art!
