Marker Techniques for Colored Pencils
I’m going to show you step by step how to use the same exact techniques I use with Copics, but with Prismacolor colored pencils.
On the left hand side, I’ll be showing you each step I do with Copic markers. On the right hand side, I’ll do exactly the same step, but I’ll be using Prismacolor colored pencils instead of Copics.
Got it? Good.
Top three myths people believe about using colored pencils:
Myth #1 – You can’t use colored pencils the same way you use copic markers.
FACT – Yes you can. You can follow my Copic tutorials step by step with colored pencils and get nearly the same results.
Myth #2 – You can’t use tons of layers with colored pencils.
FACT – Yes you can. While it is true that there is a limit to the amount of layers that you can use with colored pencils, the same thing is true when using Copic markers. With pencils, the secret is to use light pressure for most of your layers. Don’t worry about coverage or blending in your first layers, just get the colors in there. In the final layers you’ll use heavy pressure to get full coverage and blend.
Myth #3 – You can’t use a white highlighter over wax pencils.
