Ok, FINALLY, I sat down today and did the video on how to use your Bic and Sharpies to get Copic like results!(I have no clue how people can get more then one of these done a week, my hat is off to them!)
I had to trim the video in places because it was too long, still a bit too long, but wanted to make sure that you could see how easy it is to get Copic like results with your Bic and Sharpie markers. As I state on the Video, the drawbacks to the Bic and Sharpies are that they are more limited in colors and their "light/pastel" colors are much darker then the lighter Copic markers. You can buy a few of the copics to fill the gaps in your colors, especially the Copic lightest warm or cool grey which are great for so many things.
Here it is, hope it is helpful:
