Marker Colouring: advanced techniques


______________________

This Tutorial features:

- Copic markers
- Tria markers

Edit:
I decided to give the tutorial a total overhaul since the old version looked a bit dated in my opinion. The image is already from 2007, but that doesn't change the techniques used. ;) The descriptions are still the same but the layout is totally new. ^^ The text is much better readable, and I also adjusted the pictures. Furthermore, the tools and colours used should be visible at a glance now. ^____~


............................................

...another walkthrough [with markers]

______________________


My promised marker tutorial is finally here! ...or again? It might be familiar to some of you since it is a resubmit from my old account. ;)

It took me literally ages to do and I hope it's of some use to you guys. ;) Well, it's a rather long yet in depth tutorial on "how to use markers". Please enjoy!

............................................
The background texture for the tutorial was taken from =ImaginaryRosse's stock.

PS: Feedback is always appreciated! ^_~

If you don't mind me asking, what exactly is a "copic marker"?
Reply
:iconkiwichameleon:
KiwiChameleon Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2012   General Artist
I don't mind at all. :) It's a pen that draws with pigmented alcohol based ink. 'Copic' is probably the best known brand for these markers, but there are others too. Here's what Wikipedia has to say about them: [link] . I hope that helps. ;)

Fantastic tutorial.
But lots of work and steps must be done with copic to do well.
But the end result is amazing

I drew this picture sometime back in 2007, and I honestly can't remember. ^^ It certainly wasn't less than 20h. ^^

this is really great. but i was wondering, which type of copic markers do you think is the best
Reply
:iconkiwichameleon:
KiwiChameleon Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2010   General Artist
It really depends on what you are looking for. I work with all three types and each one of them has their advantages and disadvantages. ^^;

I didn't mean it in a rude way, but what effects are you looking for? Have you used these markers before? I can answer these questions a bit better. ;)

:iconlorcan-avenue:
Lorcan-Avenue Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2010   Writer
not at all, i didnt think you were being rude :). i'm not really sure because i haven't used these pens before. i was just thinking of getting some because they look really good. however i would like quite a clean look. the best use of them i have seen is Takeshi Obata's art work.

:iconkiwichameleon:
KiwiChameleon Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2010   General Artist
Takeshi Obata uses Copics in a rather simple way and you can achieve all sorts of looks with the same marker. It just depends on the technique. ;) Since you haven't used Copics before, I'd suggest you get a couple of the Copic ciao, because they are cheaper and perfect for trying them out. They are nearly the same to the more expensive Copic sketch, with the only difference in how much ink the pen holds (you can refill both though). The brush nib really makes you life easier. ;)
