I am really not sure if I am in the right place. But honestly I am a bit overwhelmed of this huge webside and my English skills are a bit limited. So I am sorry if I do something wrong.
But I want to come to my topic why I am here: I started working with alcohol markers. I am using the Winsor & Newton Brushmarker.
I am looking for some good instructions/explanations to work with markers like color picking (for blending), blending and mixing and maybe advice for a good paper... I use markers together with my graphite and/or coloured pencils so the paper should be suitable for them all.
So this is my current piece of work. In the beginning I started with a graphite background because I wanted to do a graphite piece ... than I added colour to his tongue...and yeah.. I actually don´t know what I am doing here.
I just did what came to my mind in that moment. Experimenting.
The eye is completely done with markers, the tongue has a marker base layer with coloured pencils on top.
I hope there is someone here who has some tipps for working with markers or can recommend a book or maybe Youtube channel. I can only find people who use markers for comic or Anime stuff but I prefer a realistic look and I am sure... markers can "do" realism.
