Copic Dragon

Here is a card that I did with some of the newer techniques I learned at the Copic Certification class. I colored the dragon with two very light colors of copics to start with. B000 and G00. I used the feathering technique to blend them. Then I added the darker green and blue colors. Once I am doing a little better with the feathering, I'll try it with darker colors. Marianne said that it is one of the hardest techniques to master. I think I agree with that!! The spots on the dragon AND the swirls and dots on the BG paper were made with the blender pen. It was really fun making the background paper. I sure love that blender pen now that I have learned how to use it to it's full potential. While we were in Bend/Redmond this last weekend, I took my pens along and colored up a bunch of images. Some are going for magazine submissions and some will end up here. This dragon was one that I worked on then. I thought that the dragon hump Fiskar scissors were a nice touch too! The image is a freebie from Dustin Pike's blog.

Ann, This is sooo cute. This is my favorite copic technique as well, but I call it the gradiant method, Isn't Marianne just the most fun teacher!!!
