In this intermediate Copic class, 5 lessons will teach techniques for coloring underwater scenes. Each lesson builds upon the last, developing skills that lead to success!
What does “intermediate” mean here? The class is taught with paper and pens – no stamps, no sketches, no net! That doesn’t mean it’s going to be terribly difficult, but it does mean that at least a basic facility with Copic markers is a must. Some experience with making marker strokes, blending, and flicking is needed; as well as the willingness to put a lot of color on the paper. Scenes are not for the timid who are hoarding ink in their pens. *smile*
This class is appropriate for artists working in any genre – cardmaking, fine art, animé, etc. Lessons are taught on a small paper – each is 4-1/4″ x 5.5″ but can be adapted to a larger size as desired – just remember if you double the size of the paper, you may need to double the size of marker strokes.

I had to have this class since there are so many great underwater stamps out there. While I love to recreate the class scenes first I also used the techniques I learned on many other cards. I recommend watching once thru before starting and then following along, taking your time, and rewatching several times any part that you are having trouble with. The ability to rewatch is what I love best about video classes. Thank you Sandy!

Sandy is a great teacher. This was one of the first classes I took from her. It was simple and straight forward. It’s a little intimidating to do a whole scene, but Sandy took her time to explain what she was doing. My coloring of underwater scenes greatly improved! Thanks Sandy!

This course is an amazing!!! The class is broken down into sections that you can tackle in a small sitting and practice one at a time. I love that there are only a few colors used so I can bring them with me on trips and not have a ton of supplies. I even used the kelp garden for a background on a project I had sitting on my craft table waiting for the perfect background. I entered the project into a contest and won Best of Show!!! Thanks Sandy for your wonderful classes!
