Markers

January 26, 2010

Today I am posting some marker illustrations.  I use Chartpak AD markers on Bienfang marker paper.  The pen I use keeps changing, still trying to find one I really like that doesn’t bleed once I add color.  So far Micron is winning, but I want to look for something that feels a little smoother.  The only one that doesn’t use a pen is the girl with the mohawk.  I drew her in pencil on regular drawing paper, then put the marker paper on top so I could see where I needed to color, then scanned both images into Photoshop and put the line work on top.  I think I make want to retrace the pencil work onto the marker paper, so I can have a completed hard copy, but it was fun to experiment.
