Copic Coloring: Human Rainbow I
The “human rainbow” is a celebration of the diversity of ethnicities – and an initiative begun by instructor Sandy Allnock to encourage people to go beyond typical coloring of the artist’s own skin and hair color. YouTube videos show some light diving into coloring with diversity in mind, and it’s high time we had a class giving more detailed information and instruction!
Prerequisite: Copic Jumpstart Class or equivalent experience. Recommended: Review Skin and Hair Basics and update your swatch charts from the lesson.
In this class, there are 10 lessons (only 2 are listed at right during preregistration); some lessons will be “zooming in” on a particular section of the main class image, a woman carrying two bags, to study fabric folds in large-format before applying the knowledge gained and coloring the entire image at once in the final two lessons.

Love this class. 5 stars
Great class. I love to draw, and color and this class is a tremendous help. Sometimes I forget what angle the light is coming from so the shading map is wonderful. Also the sketches provides are great if you don’t have and images of your own. Thanks Sandy
