I found this person quite some time ago, and every so often I just take some time and watch his videos on colouring with Copics.
I have no desire really to create photo realistic images like his; it's not my style at all and I'm cool with that. What these videos do is inspire me! He layers his markers so deep and uses great colours to achieve his look. You should check these out!
Don't be discouraged by things like this! be inspired!
