Copic Markers are my favorite markers, hands down, no question. I am often asked what my favorite colors are. Especially from folks new to the Copic scene. There are over 358 colors…so it’s easy to wonder what colors are favorites. It’s also smart to ask around before investing in a handful…you want to make sure the colors suit your style, etc.
When possible I sample the colors before buying. What you see on a screen isn’t always what you get. The colors you seen on your screen are often incorrect as a result of computer calibrations. Anyhoo, I’ve compiled a list of my favorites and thought you might find if helpful…and good to know if you aren’t able to buy from a local art store.
Favorite Copic Sketch Markers (as of 6/1/12)
Skin: E00 ad E21
Neutrals (for shading): N1, N3, N6
Black: 100 or 110
Here are all my colors, and I now see the photo is a bit blurry (argh). I need a new storage case, but I’m pretty sure they are all there except for a couple strays. They make me sooo happy! Love those markers, sigh…
