First Copic Drawing

Copic Deer
My first real drawing with my new Copic pens... if you don't count a small cartoon Reindeer I coloured in for a greeting card.

I created it for my other blog I'd Rather Be Blogging to illustrate a close encounter I had with four does on the way to work early the other morning.

I started with a pencil drawing, outlined it in 0.3 black Multiliner, and coloured it in with E11, E21, E25, E29, E57 and E49. Shadows were coloured with W1, W5 and W7.

I'm still learning, but already am in love with using these markers!
