Step by Step – How to Color a Koala using Copic Markers

What’s up my Creative peeps! Today I’m super excited because I’m guest designing for Neat and Tangled this month — aside from my monthly coloring video! Woo hoo! I’m using the super duper Koalifications Stamps Set.

I stamped my image in Memento Desert Sand Ink, for that ‘No LineLook and I stamped onto my Copic Xpress it Blending Card. Then, I used my Copic Markers to color this cutie and used my Koalifications Nice and Neat Die to cut him out.

So, I googled some Koala images, drawings, paintings and photos so I can get some ideas on colors and the texture and the direction which the fur lays. Check out the post I did a few months ago on ‘STOP trying to find the light source‘ for more on what I mean about googling your images.

Here’s the full Copic Marker List of the colors I used for my Koala if you would like to follow along.

R32, R30, R01, E000, C00, N0, N1, N3, N5
