Let's Get Your Creative Juices Flowing!!!
Earlier this week, I was talking ALL things Copic markers! I showed everyone how to use them so they don't streak while coloring, tips for blending, how to refill your favorite color if it runs out, AND I even showed a range of alternative alcohol markers that are MUCH CHEAPER (in case you're a beginner and don't want to drop the big bucks that Copic markers often cost)!
You can watch the full video below! (pssst...you'll even get a big sneak peek at my new Art Deco Drawing book that's coming out next week!!).
The feedback from those who have seen this video is that they are CRAZY helpful so I wanted to make you knew about them.
One woman remarked, "I just learned more in 15 minutes from you than I ever did from cardmaking and taking classes over the past 15 years".
So yeah, how can I not pass this information on to you?
Plus, it's free so there's that.
In this same video my student is referring to also share with you everything you ever wanted to know about which brands to look at (including nibs, quality and pricing), how to blend properly so you don't get those awful STREAKS in your drawings, and soooooo much more!
Drawing and coloring with markers is an artform that requires much more skill than you'd think! I'm happy to help!
Then on Wednesday, for those wanting to take these tips and techniques and apply to it specifically to a face drawing, well I've got you covered there as well!
In this next video I show you, step-by-step, how to use markers to take your face from the sketch on the left, to the full and VIBRANT face on the right!!!
I also offer 2 free resources to those that watch the video.
One is the drawing of the sketch itself.
Actually, if you click the button below, you can grab it right now!
If you HATE drawing, but LOVE coloring then this is perfect for you!! You can just download the image, print it out and goooooo!!! Want to make sure it's on the right paper? I teach you how to do that in the video too!
I also have a Shading Guide (which is actually page 55 of my How to Draw Fun, Fab Faces Book!) which you can have right away by clicking on this button below!
That download gives you 6 different shading patterns that you can use to help inform your own face drawings. Knowing where to shade is SUPER helpful!! So you're not just randomly throwing shadows and highlights around that don't make any visual sense!!
That's it from my new Drawing YouTube Channel this week! I'll be back on Monday with a POWERFUL new video on how to use my Quadrant Method to draw...anything!!! Stay tuned!!

What Fans Are Saying
Karen, you are absolutely fabulous! You make me feel like I can draw anything. I have recently retired and finally have the time to do some of the art that I have loved since I was in school. I am really at the beginning of my art journey and I hope to learn as much as I can. Thank you for all you do.
