Brown Squares with White Dots

abstract -
Most of the time, I draw first, then color. But for this drawing, I started with my markers. Working on top of my light box, with a half-inch grid placed under my drawing paper, I colored many squarish shapes. The grid helped me to keep them lined up.

Then I removed the drawing from the light box. I outlined my shapes with black Copic multiliner in several widths. Last, for contrast, I added white dots with a white Sakura gel pen (Gelly Roll.)
  • Copic marker colors used: E04,15, YR14,15,24
  • Paper: tan Crane's card approx. 4x6"
