Interior Rendering with Copic Markers

Desk BWorking with Copic markers to practice rendering my interior line drawings.

Desk & Colors AHere are a couple of techniques I use when learning to render with a new medium. The color selection stays small.  Only two hues where used in this image, red & green which are complimentary to each other.  Also added is cool, warm and brown tones.  They each have a gradation of value.

I will also take time while I am rendering, to create a color chart. This includes a color sample color and it’s Copic number. This chart is a great reference for me as I am seeing how the marker color looks on the page.

Quick note on creating contrast in this image, I was careful to render the desk with a very light value and without any texture or pattern.  This creates a high contrast with the flooring and wainscot which surrounds the desk. Notice these architectural elements have a darker value with rendered pattern and texture.

  1. I’ve been interested in Copic’s… what does the certification process look like? (on right of your page).

    • Hi Taylor,
      Nice to hear from you. To be certified you take a day seminar from a Copic representative. If you check on their website, you will note their workshop and certification seminar dates and locations.
      Cheers! Stephanie

    Hi Professor Sipp! I just love this piece. I really enjoyed the color combination in this piece of art. This piece shows a lot of pattern, shape, and texture to it, and this can really help me out when I take the markers and rendering class to give me creative ideas on my own designs.


    • Hello Micola, glad to have you playing around on the blog. I hope this will help you understand design drawing and rendering. Prof. Stephanie
