The wonderful world of markers
Traditional 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If you are new to this medium, or maybe you think it’s outdated or too limited, please give me a few minutes to open your eyes to a beautiful, colorful world!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
