Here’s the areas that will have shadows. The rose petals that are folding over will have shadows under he the the piece that is folded.
After we get our blues added.we are going to deepen the color by adding some greys, we are adding C6 and later on C10. C stands for Cool which works with other cool colors, like blue. If you would like to read more about Copics check out my Copic Information page.
Notice in the photo above, I smudged the darker color into the the light part of the rose’s petal. Well, in the next photo I added more blue and came out a little more to even out the dark to cover up my mistake.

Remember, you want to put the shadows where they make sense, under a fold, in the center part of the rose, on the inside part of the petals etc.
