Discovering Copic® markers in 2010 was a life-changing experience for artist Jennifer Dove who calls herself "a heavy-equipment operator by trade but an artist by nature." A creative spirit from a very early age, discovering Copic markers expanded Jennifer's career into designing, teaching and writing, in large part focused around Copic markers and the amazing blending, texturing and other coloring techniques she has mastered and developed. Jennifer has earned two levels of Copic certification and teaches many classes in stores and retreats across the country. She is the instructor of two Annie's online classes: Create With Copics: Beginner's Guide and Coloring Fun With Alcohol Ink Markers: People.
Jennifer's designs have appeared in numerous publications, including Annie's Copic Coloring Guide: Nature and Copic Coloring Guide: People, both authored by Colleen Schaan and Maryann Walker. Jennifer has also designed for many well-known stamp companies including Stampendous!, Talk About Impressions, Make It Crafty and Doodle Dragon Studios.
Overall, I enjoyed the class and believe I will watch it many times to refresh the finer details within it.
At times, I found the speed at which some dialogue was read a little difficult to follow, not quite giving the learner adequate time to visually absorb all the information being presented prior to moving on. I would also have liked to see the included onscreen tips/explanations be at the top of the screen, rather than the bottom.
However, these are minor concerns in an otherwise well rounded demonstration of many valuable topic points throughout the class. Well worth my investment.
In August you responded that the Class Materials Download has been updated for the Create With Copics: Beginner's Guide class with non-watermarked images. But when I download the materials there is still a watermark?

Elizabeth - There are still watermarked images, but we have also included non-watermarked images that are similar to the other images for practicing the techniques taught.
