Re: Fish - done with copic ciaos

In not sure what copics is but I think 2 or more mediums make it mixed.Looks like a fun project.

Re: Fish - done with copic ciaos

Thanks for looking and commenting, Deb! Copics are high quality markers - so this piece is neither watermedia (copic ink is based on alcohol), nor pen and ink (only a few strokes of ink). So it would be alternative materials...

Re: Fish - done with copic ciaos

We're not too picky about whether or not things posted here are "really" mixed media! You're welcome to share your work anytime, and I've been wanting to add coptic markers to my work, so maybe you'll inspire me!

Re: Fish - done with copic ciaos

Thanks for looking and commenting, Cyndi! I actually went to my favorite art store today and bought another ten copic ciao markers (they are cheaper when you buy 10 of them). I felt like a child in a toy store...

Re: Fish - done with copic ciaos

What a lovely little fishy!! Made me smile with his cuteness!

I've never heard of copic markers over here in the UK, but buying ten at a time on a special would certainly make my day!

Re: Fish - done with copic ciaos

JayJay, thanks so much for looking and commenting and for your encouraging words! Copic markers are mostly known for being mediums for Manga and animator artists, but I discovered that you can do many other things with them! What I like is that you can do very detailed work with them which is good for me because I prefer small formats (postcard size).
By the way: You've got Congleton as the place where you live - I have been there as an assistant teacher from 1974-75. Is there still a pub called "Ram's Head"?

Re: Fish - done with copic ciaos

I would have said the stuff inside Copics *is* ink? I'm a Copic addict myself, but I always see it described as alcohol-based ink. Not that anyone in the P&I forum seems to use it, so I guess here's as good a place as any. Would be cool to get some Copic discussions in.

I like your fish, he has personality.

Thank you, sweeter_than for taking the time to look and for your encouraging comments! You are right, it is alcohol-based ink. And I would also like to have some copic discussions!

Totally cute fish! ^_^
Which Copic colours did you use?
I've been wanting to get some Copics - for their brush nib and blending capabilities. In fact my visit to WetCanvas today was to research what colours to start with.... I was quite surprised to see there was no Marker Forum!

Re: Fish - done with copic ciaos

Thank you, Miaow! I didn't start with a copic marker set - I started with a range of brown colours because I thought I would like to do animals' fur. Then I gradually added some greens and some reds and some blues.
I think it depends from what you are going to paint with them - flowers, animals, people, landscapes in order to decide which colours to buy.
And thank you, Cyndi, for welcoming us marker people! It is so nice to know a place where to go to!
