I have new markers, so OF COURSE I had to try them out. I picked a watercolor sketch book out because it’s less likely to bleed through the paper there and I was hoping it would help me blend.
Here’s the first:
In case you’re wondering, this is fanart of Feyre from A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas. I used some metallic pens on it to make it pop more.
Then a botanical sketch:
Yes, there is some shooping here. I put my husband’s name in the middle, but I erased it since he prefers not to be online. I used metallics here as well.
And then a full page:
Metallic pens here as well, and I goofed her face badly, but it’s pretty all the same.
I had an easier time blending the skin tones because I have more similar sets of color, but the hair and clothing is hard because I don’t have many similar colors.
Most of what I used were the Copics and Ohuhu markers with only a few touch ups from Prismacolor. I have the hardest time working with my Primacolors because they don’t have a brush end, just a wedge and a fineliner.
So, what do you think of the markers? I think they’re not bad, but if I was using them seriously, I would want to go over with colored pencils.
Which, if I’m doing that, I should probably just start with watercolors. *smile* Fun all the same!
