See you! Read more Read less. Markers draw really quick and clean but can be a little difficult to work with if you're not used to the starkness and graphic nature of marker work. When working with markers, do a rough sketch of your idea in pencil first before making permanent marker pen marks. The great thing about sketching a marker drawing in pencil first is that after the marker ink has dried, you can take an eraser to the entire illustration and remove the initial pencil sketch, leaving the marker intact.
Because markers use so much ink, they tend to run out quickly. However, just because a marker is fading doesn't mean it's not useful anymore.
Sketching with Markers
Markers that are running out of ink are great for creating texture or blending together tones. I find them just as necessary in the drawing process as fresh new markers. Behold the humble pencil: so simple and basic yet so full of possibilities. Like handwriting, everybody draws differently from everybody else. Our various styles will inform how we use our pencils so experiment with different types of pencil marks to get the full range of use out of your pencil. This will be valuable especially when using different types of marks to describe textures and elements as completely different things.
When drawing with pencils, we tend to make lines too dark too early. I like something toothy or with a bit of texture to it, so I shop on Amazon or my local office supply store for the cheapest decent weighted printer paper I can find. This is the creme de la creme of papers. More on that later. Ive used a lot of marker papers and I swear by the Copic marker paper.
I love this paper, actually, not because of how it performs with markers, but the tooth on the paper is just great with Prismacolor premier pencils my pencil of choice.
With the tooth of the paper being a bit heaving than that on the topic marker paper, pencil work shines on this paper. Look for Bienfang marker paper with this link or at your local art store. Tracing paper is great. When I do use tracing paper, I go for the cheapest I can find, or this brand.
My go to marker brand is Copic marker. Well, the markers are modular - you can purchase different tips for the markers. They also work with accessories produced by Copic like this Airbrushing kit. Copic markers are also refillable. Copic markers come in 3 varieties - Sketch, Classic and Ciao. The chisel tip works well for blending or filling in areas and is really crisp. Again, the nice thing with Copic markers is that if you want to customize your setup, there are other tips available, like a bullet tip that is more rounded.
The Copic sketch marker is similar to the Classic, but the barrel is ovular in shape. I think this keeps it from rolling off an angled table.
I do keep a few on hand for variety. Prismacolor markers are a staple among many industrial designers and illustrators. Shinhan touch. For digital sketching, most of what I do is on an iPad Pro. I usually get every revision of the iPad Pro, maxed out, but apple now added pencil support to the base iPad. When I make my youtube videos, I use a two camera setup. I travel with one for my workshops. A solid tripod will help you whether using a traditional camcorder or a smartphone for your recording. I recommend pretty much anything made by manfrotto for tripods.
The little extra you spend on something nicer, however, will go a long way in your satisfaction.
