iCopic Tuesday Tips and Tricks #2

Hi everyone!!

Here's another installment of Tuesday Tips and Tricks!

Today, I wanted to give you a list of Copic Colors that I would start with. I get asked by beginners all the time about what colors to get when first starting out with Copics.

Everyone has to start somewhere and I recommend starting slow and building your collection. I have compiled a good list to get you started with some of the basic colors that I use pretty often. I have all the Copic Ciao markers and a handful of Copic Sketch markers, but I started small.

If you like to color in people images, I would recommend that you get these first:

For Fair Skin
  • E00
  • E02
For Tan Skin and Lighter Brown Hair
  • E33
  • E35
  • E37
For Blonde Hair
  • Y11
  • Y15

For some basic everyday colors, I would recommend these first:

For blues:
  • B00
  • B02
  • B95
  • B97
For reds
  • R27
  • R29
For pinks
  • RV21
  • RV23
  • RV29
For greens
  • YG03
  • YG11
  • G05
  • G07
For shadows
  • C1
  • C3
  • W1
  • W3

I hope that gives you some information that will help you start your collection. If you are an experienced Copic user, please leave a comment with some colors that you use all the time so we can see.


One thing I always try to do when helping people choose Copics is to choose blending families.
SO many people neglect that.

e11 e13 and e15 are staples for me
g40 g82 and g85
voo is an all over great colour for lighter areas
bv00 is a great skin shading colour as well as bv31

y21 is the best yellow :D

I start to use copic recently,.
It's an useful article for me!
Thanks for share.:)
