Well, I recently bought a set of Prismacolor markers.... tried em, loved em, immediately bought more...

I'd like hints/tips on marker based multi-media work... This first image is just a simple little practice piece of my main fursona's floating head (not too exciting, but it was for practice purposes... wanted to keep it simple) Done in micron inks, markers and prismacolor pencil.

This second piece was... well, my second attempt with the media (markers, Digital vector inks (done in Illustrator, then printed onto cardstock for coloring), and some colored pencil...) I attempted a more sleek cell style shading here... A bit nerve racking to do this technique with real media...but I figured I had it pretty much nailed with digital work and wanted to push myself.

Any comments/help/critiques appreciated.

I think you have discovered why no one posts in here.... No one ever comes in here! :D
It's the first time I've ever been here! For some freak reason I was compelled to look in here.... ooOOOoooOOoo
Anyway, can I just start by saying OH MY GOD?!!
You are too good! I love these so much. The look of coloured pencil looks really nice on Marker pen, I have always liked the look of those 2 mediums combined.
Don't let the lack of looks in this forum deter you. Of course you can always post in the Pen and Ink forum if you want :)
And I still don't understand the finer points of Illustrator even though I have the biggest manual on the planet! Of course it might help if I read it.... hmmm...
