I've been using my new ice grey promarkers I picked up last week for these sketches. I really like the finished results I get with these markers but I've found it is much easier to make mistakes with the ice greys than the cool greys I was using before. Mainly because the colour builds up more quickly and I end up laying down too much of a dark shade.
a couple of heavy made up eyes plus circles showing the five shades of the ice greys. It wasn't until I stuck them in my sketchbook I remembered I have a little thingy-me-bob for cutting perfect circles whoops!
I'm really pleased with these mouths, especially the second one. The open mouth was such a pain to do what with the tongue but I like the gum bit.
You may remember from my last post that I had bought some used Touch Twin markers off ebay. After giving the a bit of a try out I decided they weren't for me. I couldn't get them to blend as easily as promarkers. Maybe I could if I had stuck it out longer but as my promarkers blend so beautifully I didn't see the point, So I've popped them back on ebay. I've won a few used Tria markers that hopefully turn up soon. They are the same brand as promarkers but are the next step up in the price range. I am interested to see if there is much different between the two.
I want to do some coloured drawings but I don't think I'll get good results until I get the fine nib add on as I'm not able to tiny detail with the normal nibs. I have a black fine liner for the grey ones.
Hope you liked the sketches, I've had such lovely comments off people about the last ones :)
