I have really been enjoying using markers to color my work recently. No Not Crayola. Prismacolor of course...I’m using big kid markers now :) I had a hard time at first because once you color a spot you can’t UNcolor it like you can when using PhotoShop. I had to get used to planning out where I wanted it to stay white or where I was going to Highlight. In a way it is very similar to Scratch Art…only that is planning out where I want it to stay black.
Mostly I’ve stuck to the Artist Trading Cards but I’m considering branching out and coloring larger pieces with the Markers. I have become pretty confident with them, much more then I am with paint and with Markers I can get the colors to be more vibrant I think. I’m working on about 10 more trading cards and then I will get started coloring a 11x15 piece that I’ve been working on. It is one of my few Si-Fi pieces and I actually took it from a ATC that I did for Dragon Con last year. I’m excited to see how it turns out when coloring it all in Markers. It will be quite a task so wish me Luck! I’ll try and post progress photos as I go.
P.S. I’ve finished a few Brand New Myxies and should be posting them on my store soon, keep checking my blog for updates!
Thanks for reading.
