A couple of people wanted to know what I use for some of my drawings, so I shall tell you! After finding out about this lovely Crayola Marker Tutorial
, I thought, "Yay, who needs copics!!" (although copics and prismacolor markers are high quality and are wonderful for all those shades you cannot get. ;w; but they're so expensive....like 6 dolars for one stupid marker, why? OTL). So, for most of my traditional drawings, I've been testing out or using washable markers, and I gotta say that they are fun to use!! They blend surprisingly well on most watercolor paper, I lucked out with the pack of markers I got in a bookstore over spring break since there were two skin colors! SO! ONTO THE STUFF I USE/HAVE USED!! Paper
I primarily use watercolor paper for my traditional drawings, not only because it blends washable markers well, but if I'm using Copics, I need really heavyweight paper. TTwTT
^^This is what I've been using so far! You can find watercolor paper at any art store! Pencils/Erasers
.... You can pretty much just use anything. XD I use a mechanical pencil and a white eraser. Outlines
^^^These are what I use to outline stuff! In most art stores, you can buy multiliners or outline pens individually. Be careful with the Staedtler ones; they're water based and might accidentally mix with colors. ALSO! If you want a slightly cheaper alternative, look for any pens that won't bleed with water, or use Sharpie Pens
This depends. I sometimes use Crayola markers, copics/prismacolors, other random washable markers I bought/were given to me, or a combination. For the picture of Magista colored
picture, I used these things that I bought at a bookstore one day. XD You can buy these online. I'd recommend the Faber Castell washable markers; those had the two skin colors.
However, for other pics like this
, I used Crayola markers!
The 64 pack, actually. XD As in this thing: BLENDY STUFF
I USED to blend with a color blender for water-based markers, but I lost it. >< So lately, I've just used a watercolor brush that holds water in it. However, you can also use water and Q-tips as well. I've used the Letraset Aquamarker Blender as my blendy pen. You can buy them on amazon and other online stores I think. XD
..... and I THINK that's it. Anyway, I hope this helped!!
