Realistic fur is not something you get with traditional Copic smooth blending…

but it’s also not drawing lots of hairs in random directions either.

Join Amy for a lesson on the flow of fur. And frankly, the Corgi is the perfect kind of dog to demonstrate this lesson, because the flow of Corgi fur is part of what makes them such a beloved dog breed.

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!
