I just wanted to just share my technique for coloring fur using Copic markers. Contrary to most Copic coloring where there is a lot of blending, I find that for coloring fur, one wants to leave contrasting light brush strokes. This creates the look of a furry texture.

I colored up these two foxes from C.C. Designs called, “Sir Rupert with Tea” and “Sir Rupert with Cane” using the following Copic colors and pens: Hat and bow tie: B95 and 97; Dark brown ears and paws: C74 and 79; White tail, chest and snout: W1 and 3; Eyes: BG75 and 78; Brown of body: E97 and 99.  Chair for the tea sipping fox: YR31 and 24; Staff for the walking fox: Clear Star Gelly Roll pen.  White shine spot on eyes: White Gelly Roll pen. Darkening edges of fussy cut images: Faber Castell PITT artist pen in SB size. Lastly, to add some dimension, I added Glossy Accents to the eyes, glasses, walking staff, and tea cup and saucer.

The following is a process video showing how I colored the walking fox:
