New Copic Products Part 2

Here's the second sneak peek of new products you can find in the Copic Booth at Winter CHA. Don't forget to leave a comment on yesterday's post to be entered for a special prize drawing.
Shading: A beginner's guide to lighting placement, book by Marianne Walker
Many of you who read the Copic blogs have been wanting more information about how to correctly place your shadows when coloring. Marianne's blog has lots of suggestions, but you have to dig through posts and print things out. Now, Marianne has taken the fundamentals of coloring with shadows and put them in this simple to use reference book. This book is for beginners, and applies to anyone who colors, from papercrafters to artists. You do not need to know how to draw to add shadows like a professional artist! This guide easily steps you through how to correctly add shadows and make your coloring look more dimensional. The wire-bound book comes with 4 clear printed guides to help you add shadows properly on your own work, without all the frustration and guess-work. This book will be available in March, though you can get a sneak peek at CHA. If you want to attend a hands-on workshop that teaches these same concepts as they relate only to papercrafting, then register for the Intermediate Certification nearest you!

I love the idea of having a book to train with illustrations, but to have it for back up. I know I'd be using this for a long time.

WOW! This is like a belated gift from Santa! I had posted that after going thru most of the beginner's Copic class on line, that finding the light source and correctly applying that to my image was the biggest challenge for me. Looks like this will be right on my work table with my markers. How grateful I am for the work that went into this book--thanks so much!!!--Stacy O'Dell

Oh this is what I need and have wanted something like this so bad I will have to see where to get it if I dont win it. I got into Copics about 4 months ago and love the way they work but I need so much help on shading. This is a must have. Thanks so much for the chance to win it.
