You've Got To Get This Book!

I got a new book today, "Copic Coloring Guide, Level 3: People", by Colleen Schaan and Michelle Walker, and I'm loving it.  This book will get lots of use from me.   If you love to color, not just with copics, but coloring with anything, this book is definitely one you should have in your library.   It's an amazing guide. 

The book is usually priced at $14.95 and comes with a CD.  The CD alone is worth the price.  This is the third in a series of copic coloring guides by Colleen and Michelle, and they just get better and better.  I'm already anticipating what a fourth would cover.

There are lots of tutorial goodies on the CD, including hair chart and a skin chart to keep coloring combinations on, images you can practice on.  You can print out as many as you need to compile a sketch book for your personal use with your favorite color combos.  The book covers faces, hair, clothing, and textures, shading and shadowing.  There are also instructions for projects using images from some favorite artists.

If you don't want to wait for the book you can purchase an online copy from Annie's Attic for the same price.  Don't miss with this one.  You'll kick yourself if you do. 

As always --
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. WOW, WOW, WOW.... thank you SO much for the kind comments and the support of our book! We LOVED creating this one and I'm so glad you find it useful! It means the world to me to hear your enthusiasm! (And maybe, just maybe... a 4th is on it's way! Wink Wink...)

    1. Colleen, I so love this book, and it's already looking "loved". You guys did a great job on this book. I'm always happy to tell folks something good, and I'm telling everybody I know who colors to get this book.

      I'm sending you and Michelle a great big high 5. Thanks for sharing your knowledge and experience with of us.

  2. I not only ordered this one on your suggestion, as I have Copics and color so one dimensional. But also ordered the other two to learn the basics up. I was going to comment on Outlawz, but can't find the message. Thank you for the suggestion as I'm too far from any store to take classes and using books and CDs will work better for me where I am. I also got a great price as I can order through the Military, so double thank you!!!

    1. You will not regret it. I've been working with copics about a year now, and I love them. I also use color pencils and Promarkers. I just love to color. These books will teach you the basics and before you know it, you'll be doing things you only imagined being able to do. If you go back to the beginning of my blog, you'd understand what I mean.
