The wonderful world of markersTraditional Art Basics
Hello, my name is TheBrassGlass, and I have a problem...
I’m addicted to markers.
If you are new to this medium, or maybe you think it’s outdated or too limited, please give me a few minutes to open your eyes to a beautiful, colorful world! This is a relatively cheap medium to get into (even the most expensive markers will be easier on your wallet than investing in oil paints, brushes, palettes, canvas, frames, gesso, smock, mineral spirits, an easel, for example, and for the price of even a refurbished Wacom Intuos medium tablet, you can buy dozens of the most expensive markers), they are pretty portable as far as art supplies go, and they look good – what more can an artist want?
So, as an introduction, I’ll go over two main types of markers – water-based and alcohol-based – and a couple of quick techniques for both. I’ll also talk a little bit about paper
Hey, the names Dragonshadow3! I love art, and it's my life goal to do as much of it as I can. I do everything, from traditional art to photography to digital art; whatever strikes my fancy at a particular moment. I'm also a big time writer, and you can check out my stories at fanfiction.com. I'll put the information down below.
Maybe when I get a little older I'll do some commission work, but for now my stuff is strictly free, although I might turn on the print feature in the near future.
Anyway, just a few quick facts about me:
1) I love art, and have been doing it since I was a little kid
2) I can play four different instruments, and I am hoping to add singing to my list of assets
3) I am an avid gamer. Currently I've logged over five thousand hours combined on all my Pokémon games alone
4) My dream job is to be a videogame concept artist for gamefreak
5) Right now I am working on a videogame called Project: ELEMENTALS. I'll be uploading images of the characters here, and will be gradually revealing more about the game as I get closer to completing it.
So, what else do I want to say here?
I do a lot of pixel art. Primarily I work with free software (you know, starving artist thing) so I do my digital art in Paint, Inkscape, Blender (once I figure out how to actually use it without getting a giant headache in the process) and Minecraft. (yes I play Minecraft. Get over it.) Hopefully I'll be able to get some video editing software and a map editor in the near future.
Credit should be given where credit is due. Some of my pixel art is based off of the grids that hama-girl provides. A big thank you to her for letting me use them.
I will give you a llama if you give me a llama.
I will try to respond to every comment.
I usually do not do watches for watches, but in some cases I will make exceptions, like if I really like someone's work.
