Since I've been asked around 759 times how I make my coloring look like the way it is, how I use alcohol and how I combine markers with colored pencils etc. etc. I decided to sit down for fucking eight hours and do this goddamn tutorial, because I love you guys ♥ and I want to help you improving.
I know pictures are nice but also please fucking READ IT!

So this is the process of this drawing/painting including tips and the usage of the many differnt tools I'm working with.
Oh and I couldn't differnt but being a little sarcastic and trying to put a few jokes here and there.

If you have any questions or suggestions about anything, feel free to ask me!

And no, these markers aren't mine, as well as the colored pencils. Google is your friend.

may i ask how much os one of the copic markers and the fine liners cause i would really like to try to make one of these cause they look beautiful

I suggest trying your luck to find copics on ebay. They're usually very expensive and are around 8-9 USD per piece. Although, sometimes you may manage to get them for a lot cheaper on ebay.
