Alternate paper for Copics? (Bear cub drawing)

Have you been looking for an alternate paper for Copics? One that does a great job when paired with colored pencils? Look no further, I think I found it!



I created the hex chart system first for Copic markers – ironically out of a rather lazy attitude! I wanted to continue my art without stopping to re-ink pens, so I scribbled colors next to each other to see what was the closest I could get away with. Then needed to sort all those scraps into something I could relocate….and a chart was born.

That led to creating charts for Prismacolor, Polychromos, and Luminance Pencils, too! They’re for sale so everyone can skip the pain I went through.

I can’t afford all the brands though…I need full sets to make charts. Sorry, no watercolor media since few printers can print with waterproof ink.

Community LAUGHS

I love my community…they get me! Say something hilarious
and you might end up here!

“Oh Sandy, just when I need a pick me up, you post a video of painting a guinea pig in a space helmet!”


“If you ever want to give up art, I’m sure you could make a go at being a comedian…a standup comedian!”


 “Refreshing light hearted humor removes the stress of thinking art is hard! Never boring  -one of my favorites on Instagram🙃😋

Shelly Lindsay

“Sandy’s talent is so strong, pickle jars open themselves in her presence.”
