WIP Venom FanArt

Hello everyone,

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.

Hi Jessica this looks awesome!
I'm looking forward to seeing where our go with this.
As for advice experimentation is one of the best teachers. Just learn what works for you. I don't use markers so I can't give any advice, but you look like you do great work with them.

I'm afraid I don't work with markers either, but this is looking great so far!

When learning something new I go to YouTube and watch whatever videos I can find. Try searching there for realistic marker art.
C&C always welcome. Michelle
