Copics Video...Coloring Hair

I thought I would do a continuation on the same image I demonstrated coloring flesh tones.  I want to apologize for the angle of the video.  For the life of me, I couldn't set up my camera to run a straight on view of my workspace that would work in this video.  If there is a way to actually flip a video around, I haven't learned it.  But in the meantime, I hope this will further demonstrate a few tips and techniques I discovered while working with these amazing pens.


I do not claim to be a pro at these things.  In fact, I am merely a novice.  I may in fact be leading you astray on correct techniques and procedures.  But, I do like the effects I have been achieving and wanted to share what I have learned and hopefully, a few people who have invested the money in these pens (yes, they are costly) will dig them out and give them another try.  They are so worth it!

WOW Shelley, if I didn't know, I would think that you were a pro at using copic markers. The actual "purchase" of getting me a small set of copic markers to start out with has been the topic of discussion between my husband and I...I think I have won him over. hehe. I would like to know how you can get the same effect with just a light and dark color without having the in-betweens. I can't wait for that tutorial.

The software I use you can flip the video once it's loaded. It's free and you can download it. It's Windows Live Movie Maker.

Thank you for this tutorial. It helped me a lot. I have to start using my many unused Copic markers! I wanted to get certified, but the lady/contact from the Copic.com never replied to me....when they are coming to LA area? ...I think retailers and teachers have priority...mhhh I am a teacher/librarian?? hehe
