|Copic Fluorescent colors shown under a black light|
I wanted to see which combination of these fluorescent shades would produce the most nicely blended, yet knock-your-socks-off, filled image. I also like to see the results, for comparison, very near each other on the same project.
This Dover Digital Image of three parrots among branches of a rose tree did the trick. This also allows me to show use of regular Copic colors mixed with the fluorescent colors in the same image. Parts of this image are smaller and tighter than I like to work with. I thought that I might have to use a lot of tip-to-tip and/or pallet blending to provide the needed shading in those 'one-stroke-is-all-you-get' areas. A light touch with the very top of the brush tip was all I needed.
Following are closeups of my attempts at three different marker combinations using Copic fluorescent colors. The Copic color coding system seems a little skewed on these but don’t let that deter you from the happiness these fluorescent shades can produce. Four colors (code with digit of 1) are brighter and the other four (digit of 2) are slightly duller.
FRV1 Pink, FYR1 Orange
FYG1 Yellow, FY1 Yellow Orange, and FYG2 Dull Yellow Green
FB2 Dull Blue, FBG2 Dull Blue Green, and FV2 Dull Violet
