Copics I Reach for All the Time

Hello Everyone,
 So many people ask for a list of beginner Copics. Well here is a list of colors I find myself always going for in my stash(My go to colors).  This is a personal preference,(I tend to look on the Brighter side of life)but  more then likely it will work for you. So here we go:

Skin Tones - E000,E00,E11,R20(blush)
Afican American - E31,E33,E35,R32(blush)

Blues - B21,B24,B26

Greens - G20,G24,G28

Yellows- Y000,Y11,Y13,Y15

Orange - (bright)YR00,YR02,YR04,YR09
(warm)YR00,YR12,YR18(my daughters recommendation)

Brown - E33,E35,E37,E39

Yellow Green - YG11,YG13,YG17

Pink - R81,R83,R85

Reds - R20,R22,R24,R27,R29(reds are one of the hardest colors to work with and having ALL these colors will help you get a smooth blend)

Violet - V000,V12,V15, V17

Blue Green - BG10, BG13,BG15,BG18

Grays - C00,C1,C3,C5,C7,C9
So there it is, a really, really good place to start collecting. These are by no means the only colors you will ever need.  That will all depend on what you color and what colors appeal to you. That being said, an awesome source for markers is Copic Markers Srapbooking.  They have everything you could ever want and their service is wonderful.(I know from dealing with them)    
So have fun and Craft On.
