Beast - Copic colour process

I'm skipping over the colouring process for Nightcrawler and hopping straight to Beast, simply because I got so carried away with colouring his 'Crawler's Bamf cloud I didn't take enough photos to make a process post worthwhile!

With Beast I really wanted to experiment with creating a hairy/furry look with the copics, so it was less about colour blending and more about building layers and a thickness with the same tonal range. For a reminder of the final picture, click here!

Abe Sapien - Copic colour process

Hey there folks,

Following my recent spree of posts featuring awesome pop culture characters coloured with Copic Markers, I've had a bit of interest in how I coloured them and which pens I used.
I don't pretend to be an expert with Copics and I've a lot to learn, which is why while colouring each illustration I took photos of each stage with the pens I used, purely to remind myself how in the heck I did it!
Since I mentioned this I've been urged to blog these photos, so I'll start at the beginning with my first ever Copic venture. Here is how I coloured Abe Sapien.
