Copic colours can be vibrant but they can also be used to create soft, delicate shades
and here is an example of this using the no-lines technique.....
As you can see I have also added patterns to the clothing and parcels - those little extra details can really make your colouring stand out.
Tiddly Inks - Wryn Birthday Girl
Dress/Bow - G40, YG11, G12, G21, G46, T1, T2, T3, T4, G20

I hope this has inspired you to use some of the softer shades within the Copic colour range and to have a go at adding patterns to your images.
