Inspiration: Copic Advanced Scene tutorials I (indoor, outdoor with structures)

Welcome to the collection of advanced Copic coloring tutorials! Part I scenes are either indoors, or outdoors with buildings. Part II will have outdoors scenes; I had to divide advanced scenes into TWO posts because there are just SO many!

These require a little more drawing skill – lots of fun, but if you want to take a drawing class to build up skills and confidence, I recommend either Drawing 101 or 30 Days to More Confident Sketching!

Inspiration: 16 Intermediate Copic Tutorials

The Copic intermediate tutorials in this page include scenes – relatively straightforward ones! If you’re able to do the intermediate mini classes on my teaching site, you can handle these. Each one has been checked for links, and if the stamps are no longer available that should be noted. (Very few of those!)
