Did these to practice with my copic markers. I have to say this is a great way to learn how to use markers quickly. I had been doing full 11x17 illustrations and doing markers on those. But after spending so much time on them, I was worried about messing it up during the marker phase. So I would play it safe. But just whipping out a small sketch card is nothing. So I was more adventurous when it came time to color them. The main thing I was trying to play with was secondary, colored lighting. I have these pieces in the order I did them, left to right, top to bottom.
So you can see with the Psylocke piece that was kind of rough with the pink lighting. So much so that I didn't do any secondary lighting on the white queen. Then with She-Hulk I did a little bit, but I did some background elements. Even the the lighting was small, I was pretty happy with the suit rendering. Then came Mystique. Here I just threw the purple highlights on right away. Previously I would color everything and just leave open white spaces for the secondary lighting. So I went with the secondary lighting first on Mystique so I wouldn't have to be worried about ruining anything. Also it was a head shot so it was quicker to create. Overall I was pretty happy with it, looks better in person. They all do. Last was Storm. I am really happy with this one. I did all the blue lighting on the body first and then I went to town with my new Gelly Roll White Pen.
