Me being the idiot geek I am, in my hunt to purchase Copic markers, I often forget how many I have and... how many I already have a color of. I'm almost at 200 markers alone (including Prismacolors and random ones.), but a lot of them are -doubles-. Not like this is a bad thing... but...

Look at all those empty spaces! I have to fix that!

And... I will! Soon! Soon I will possess all of the copic Ciao's! And maybe a few more Sketches. lol.

I have 95% Ciaos and 4% Sketches with a single random 1% Original (colorless blender).

Okay! Art time!

EDIT: L O L! I grayscaled this grid and wow. The values... not many to be had. XD At least not from my collection.

I put in my tutorial collection although I know this is your personal instrument. Its a really nifty trick you used here to keep track of such expensive and varied instruments!

wow, I should do this with my colored pencils from Prisma that I have. I have so many I can't think straight!

Its really helpful because if you do on-the-spot commissions at a con, and you've taped/glued the paper to a sketchbook of yours, its really easy to just flip it open and go 'what colors best match' and they point, you make a note of it and proceed!

you should upload the blank grid for others to use... very helpful!

I'm actually doing this. Haha. Three of them. Since there are three different styles of Copic marker, I'm making three different styles of grids, in both .pdf and .xls forms. Each one will be large enough to host every available color, and have blank spaces for newly released colors/colors from a different line (like I have Ciaos, but have added Sketches to my collection)/Custom blended colors (that people make themselves).

Best thing is, each of these grids can be cut down to size and glued onto a page in someone's sketch book!
