Drawn on marker paper & glued into my sketchbook.
I tried and failed to do some coloured faces sketches but I didn't have the right shades. Also some shading practice in the circles.
I'm really pleased with how these are coming along and it has awakened my love of markers again. So much so I had a little pen shopping spree! I was in London for a day out this week so I popped over to cowling and wilcox and stocked up on some new shades. There's another set I am still after, plus letraset have brought out a new Ultra-Fine nib that can be attached to the promarkers. As sad as it sounds I'm very excited about that hehe, but will have to order them online because the shop had none in stock.
Here's what I bought though,
Also picked up a letraset marker pad just to see if it was better than the marker paper I already have
That's not all, I won an auction on ebay for 44 Touch Twin marker pens. They are used but I got them for a right bargain. I wanted to see if they were as good as I've heard. To be honest I'm not so sure I like them. I've only tested them out a little bit so far but they dont seem to blend as well as the promarkers. I've give the another play but if I'm not happy I can always sell them on.
They do look pretty though right? ;)
I might do a marker pen review youtube video. I know, awful geeky but its one thing I am always looking for and the only ones I find are about Copic markers or Prismacolor. I do own some Prismacolor so I could do a video stating the pro & cons of Promarkers, Prismacolor and Touch Twin. I think some people might find it helpful, what do you all think?
Anyway that's me done for this week, I have lots of pens to go play with now, bye!
