Copic concrete and grass

Today I thought I'd share a simple tutorial on how I drew the sidewalk and grass on the card below. Using a Copic multi-liner pen and a straight edge, draw in a sidewalk.
Continue until your sidewalk is the size you want it.
Here's what mine looked like when I was done.
Start with a Copic C7 and go around all the edges.
(I use the chisel tip for all of these steps)
Next, blend in C5 around the edges.
Finally, fill in with C3.

I usually like to add a little grass also.
To do that, I make a thick line with the chisel tip of YG17.
(This will help avoid white spaces in between your blades of grass)
Choose a darker shade of green, and make small strokes with the brush tip.
Then fill in with various shades to finish off.
Here's what my finished image looks like.
I really hope this was helpful! Give it a try!
Thanks for stopping by.
