The important finishing details that will complete an image and give it a polished, professional look are highlighted in this fourth installment of the Copic Coloring Guide series. The crafting handbook discusses light source in-depth, from highlights to shadows and shading, and provides step-by-step tutorials for adding details with the Multiliner pen and creating backgrounds with the Airbrush System. It also teaches techniques for no-line stamping, faux watercoloring, and using Copics with other coloring mediums. A final tutorial section pulls all of the learned skills together with helpful tips and suggestions that include coloring detailed images, keeping coloring consistent throughout an image, and marker control. All of the hand-drawn images from the book are included on the accompanying CD-ROM, and the images from the tutorials can be printed so crafters can apply the lessons from the book to the image before them, in addition to extra sample projects from artists to further inspire and instruct crafters.
