Hey hey, Elaineabella here with another Marker Geek Monday post to get the week off to a colourful start!
I’ve had a few requests for this topic, so I hope you find it useful!
Colouring Dark Skin Tones using Copic Markers:
A few people have asked me recently for suggestions for marker combos to try when tackling darker skin tones using Copics, so I made a little time to play so I could share the results! Below you will find a selection of dark skin tone Copic combos to try out.
Please bear in mind when trying any suggested marker combos, that they are suggestions, they are not set in stone and when you try them out your results will differ from mine. Use them as a jumping off point to experiment!
One particular thing that will make a great difference to the results you see when following any suggested combination of markers is the paper you use. If you use a paper with a different tone, the colours will appear different.
You can find previous Copic skin tone suggestions in this post: Marker Geek Monday Copic Skin Tones

I’ll be back next week with more suggestions and some more info/tips in Part 2!
