After reviewing past posts, I have learned a lot about the number system for Copics. Each letter describes the color and the numbers reflect the saturation, right? To blend well, you should use…Continue

Hi, I'm new to the group and still kin of new to Copics, I started buying this past summer and i took the Online Card Classes Copics for Beginners class and loved it and learned a great deal, although I feel I still am not that good, I am working my way to owning all the Sketch, right now I have about 205, so almost there, lol just another 100 and some to go :)

I splurged a year ago and bought a set of 72 copic markers. Only to go to a local class and find out I did not have more that 3 sets of 3 markers that were correct to blend with. I have since worked on getting some more to make a few more blending groups.

But, in the mean time I feel so discouraged. I really don't know where to start. The class I took was more for artists and I can not find anything locally where they start you from ground zero. I mean I need someone to sit beside me, for a few step by step classes, in order to get it. 

I was intimidated by them at this public class and was clear everyone knew All About them, but me, even to it was...Intro to Copics!! 

Can anyone give me any ideas of where to go, online or whereever, to get the basics?  And by basic I really mean basic. What image is best, to start with, how to hold the marker, etc...

It's been quiet here.  I was wondering if any of you have taken any online Copic classes.  If so, which ones did you find the most helpful/instructive?  I'm a bit overwhelmed with everything that's out there and don't know where to start.  I color mostly floral images for now, but hope to expand eventually into animal and people images.  I have Copic sketch markers, which I love.

HI Keith and group. I have used both the copic and SN and they perform the same. The reason for my switch to SN is the huge cost difference. Now granted the Copics are refillable, but that means another investment in the refill kit, which is more money. I get the same use out of the markers.

SN stands for the alcohol marker brand, "Spectrum Noir." Specifically how they differ from Copics, I don't know.

Hiya Keith! make all the noise you want LOL! I don't know if there is a SN specific group (yet). But alcohol is alcohol, right? Or maybe not. It's just so much easier for me to understand and choose Copic shades and take off Copic caps. And since I invested in Copics so I'm a copicky girl. I'll be selling off all the gen #1 SNs I bought when I get my act together. We just listed one of our autos for sale (yay)! It takes me for-eh-ver to get a task accomplished so this is big for me. Enjoy the group and all the helpful tips and tricks!!!!

Hi, Sharon and Rosy! I'll try not to get in your way and stay as quiet as I can (Yeah, right HaHa!)

For the benefit of the others, it was only yesterday that I received by mail a 72 ct. set of SN markers. Up until now I used Faber-Castell watercolor pencils. Do SN markers count for the benefit of this group?
