Version Two May 2011
(Version One - fav.me/d2tq7sl)
Decided to update this tutorial and combine the two elements because it makes it easier to start choosing colours if you know how the numbers work.
This explains the Types of Copics, How to Determine what you need, Explanation of the Greys, more details explanation of the Colour Chart and number system and finally how to choose Gradient colours.Version 2.1 - Nov 2012
Changed formatting to be a little more friendly, the darker the background the more advanced it is. You can start with just the lighter ones and work from there as you buy more CopicsAlso
I mention that I have some copics that I made, you do this by buying a blank marker (empty one) then filling it with inks yourself. I've only ventured into making lighter versions of colours I already have (i.e YR200 which is YR20+colourless blender, E700 from an E70 ink and I botched up an E03/R00 - putting ink in an existing marker doesn't work so well, but it worked enough)Short Summary of this tutorial: BUY COPICS!!!
