February 2018: Copic blending combinations do not work for pink objects because they force you into using red markers to shade. Learn how to create true pinks without adding unrealistic red markers.

Vanilla Livestream is perfect for:
- Intermediate colorers who already have basic Copic blending skills
- Intermediate colorers who are tired of "monkey see, monkey do" demonstrations
- Experienced colorers looking to challenge their current skills
- Shy artists who want more than craft-level classes based on trendy techniques
I recommend that if you're a beginner, start with Marker Painting Foundations to develop your basic marker technique BEFORE joining Vanilla Livestream classes. These are definitely intermediate level challenges!
