rey | star wars: the force awakens

At the end of August, I ordered a set of Copic markers from Japan. They were on back-order practically everywhere. They are scheduled to come in this week, but I’ve been eager to try them. So I went to Michael’s and bought 4 shades of warm gray markers to tide me over. Last night, I finally colored with them, deciding to use them on this drawing of Rey from Star Wars: The Force Awakens that I completed a few weeks ago.

There was a point in time where I thought I’d never really have a use for copic markers. However, after watching artists such as Mahmud Asrar work with them on their Periscope stream, I got to see how I could use the markers to enhance my own art. It’s much less messy than applying ink washes and the blending quality is amazing. I am really pleased with the result, the biggest achievement being that there is a background. :)

The original drawing and print are available for purchase.
