Speed Marker Practice... by ExiledChaos Speed Marker Practice... by ExiledChaos
Bllleeehh... i don't really want to post this, especially since my damn scanner ruined what little I liked about this... But if I don't post something then I'll end up slipping through the cracks again X__x;

This is a marker test... just a crappy, quick marker test; about 1 hour. I have really old prismacolors in a limited selection, and I was doodling with them the other day, and I thought I might be able to adapt them in a similar way I use water colors, along with the colored pencil, which I use the most right now. It was pretty fun, but different and a bit challenging. If I were to get a better range though, and maybe look up a couple good tutorials, I could see myself using this media more often...

Also, this is just some random chick, but I think she kinda looks like Tonks (in my mind)... or maybe some other redhead HP girl xD (so many in that series). Who do you think she looks like? *derp 8D*

...hopefully will have better artz soon. Thanks for looking =\

How can some people do THIS with markers!!!??? I don't know what the original non scanned pic was like, but this is really good!!!
I love the lighting effects, and also her eyes and lips, they are very well done :D

xD I can't help it sometimes, I tend to over critique myself... I do like how this turned out, I think I mostly upset with how the scanner butchered it =(

Thanks so much :hug: You really helped to reassure me ;)
