I do not know if you knew....but you will now...Copic has instructional workbooks that will help you with your coloring skills. The one I played with today is Intro to Coloring. In the book you will find wonderfully written step by step instructions on blending, shapes and shadows, wood, using the colorless blender, texturing and so much more. It includes line art you can photocopy and color along. I used the butterfly to create this card using basic blending. This is one of many of the new books you must check out. Also available is Coloring Faces and hair, Coloring Flowers and Coloring Cats and Dogs. They can all be found HERE.
