COPIC When did you start drawing Manga?
Laura I started drawing comics a while ago and moved then to drawing Manga about three years ago when I joined a friend at one of the largest trade shows for Manga and Anime, ‘Connichi’.
During my studies I realised that the design process is followed by a long, and I think, boring process to the finished dress. Since then I focus on what I enjoy the It was crazy but the crazy costumes and characters inspired me. One day later a bought I marker set.
COPIC What inspires your drawings?
Laura A blank piece of paper.
Sitting in front of my sketch book with a marker in my hand makes me happy and I get lost in creativity. The world around me disappears once I start focusing on a new story. I prefer drawing fantasy figures such as elves, witches and monks. I put a lot of characteristics of people I meet in those figures.
COPIC What markers do you use?
Laura I like COPIC ciao’s wide range of colour choice. The markers dry quickly and don’t smudge. For fantasy figure drawings I use the special 5+1 sets in skin colours. Being a student I especially like the price and COPIC ciao are ideal as I don’t have to buy new markers constantly but can refill my existing ones.
