UPDATE: Since =anikakinka and =gazdowna made me remember about TRIA's problems with their caps and the ink getting dried, I decided to update my tutorial about it. It seems that the first batch was defective because the caps do not close correcty. If you have your Tria markers completely dried out, try to take off the nibs from one side and pour some alcohol (thanks KnP for your advice)
I finally finished the first part of my marker tutorial I promised you a very long time ago. I'm really sorry for making you wait but I had some serious problems with covering all the most important things. I'm aware I din't not explain everything but I will try to tell you more in the second part where I will concentrate on coloring with markers.
I'm not gonna describe Prismacolors or Touch markers because I didn't use them myself. Also, I can't give the proper addresses of places where I bought my markers since some of them I got via Ebay and other in some art shops in Poland (mainly in Warsaw). As far as I know, you can buy them on Internet.
for some photos used in this guide
Also, some photos are made by me, others are taken from brochures and official marker sites (since I couldn't take good quality photos with my bad camera).[link] TUTORIAL: Cleaning Pencil Linearts [link] TUTORIAL: Drawing Hair [link] TUTORIAL: Basic Drawing Tips[link] Editing Scanned Drawings[link] Colouring Tutorial[link] Drawing folds and frills in women's clothes
