Copic Autumn Scenes: PreClass

Welcome to pre-class prep for the autumn scenes class!

This intermediate course needs markers and paper – no other supplies! If it’s been a while since you colored with your Copics, you may wish to review the Copic Jumpstart course content – including the introductory videos in the PreClass lesson in that curriculum. You may wish to refill markers and change out ragged nibs before getting started on this course!

Before we start…a little housekeeping

I retain the copyright to the content you are learning in class. That means…

  1. Do not sell or give away the concepts from my classes – you may not re-teach my instruction contained or created within these lessons.
  2. Do not post a video tutorial or step by step photo tutorial of your own redraw of class content.
  3. Do not repost any handouts you receive in class.

However…I love to see students making strides and taking this teaching and personalizing it with your own skills.

  1. DO make your own designs and develop your own style! I love that!
  2. DO gift your creations made with these techniques, of course!

At the bottom of each lesson you’ll see some ways to share your homework and ask questions, so that’ll be handy for you.


You may use whatever paper you normally choose for your Copic coloring. In the class, Neenah Solar White is used. On slick papers, or really thick papers, some of the techniques may turn out differently due to the way those papers blend.


The colors listed here are the ones used in the lessons – however, if you have a color that’s close, you may well be just fine. You can always order a marker you see employed later. But note that BV0000, BV000, and BV00 are all listed here – they will help with getting a progression of blue-violet colors, so all three are recommended, even though you may come up with a compromise result while missing one of them.

Colors used in this course:

  • Y0000
  • BV00 or BV000
  • BV02 BV04 BV17
  • C9
  • E08 E33
  • E47 E49
  • R02 R08
  • Y06 Y17
  • YG91 YG95 YG97
