More drawing time, please


Nope, I didn´t disappear. Work just got a little hectic, so I let the blog rest for a while. Soon time for a long vacation, though, so I don´t worry too much about it.

I´ve been playing around with these impossible but funny Copic markers for a bit. You know how markers are always impossible because they bleed through the paper? Well, get the right kind of paper and you´ll have good fun with them! I bought a pad of really smooth and bleedproof marker paper, and now I am learning some tricks with these fantastic pens.

For example: don´t draw black lines and then try to colour them in (as I almost always do with other techniques) - the markers will solve the black ink and everything will be a mess. Black lines go on as a last detail.
And: even if you don´t draw over the black pen, you can still make a mess - as in this drawing of a Swedish table classic (Bregott butter). I can´t really control these fellas, and I kind of like it. They keep surprising me. :)

15 x 11 cm, pencil, Copic markers and black pen on bleedproof marker paper.

Well, it's bright and fun, anyway, Nina! Is Bregott a brand, or a type of butter? *G*

Well, that's certainly a really good drawing and has a lot of things to get right, which you have. Are those markers like the colored Pitt Brush Pens? I was just playing with one when your post came on...trying to figure out what to do with them----your post helped me see possibilites where I might use them. Great to have you back....winna

Kate: Bregott is a brand, owned by some big dairy company.

I've played around with markers, too. They kinda make you feel like a kid again, don't they? Hard to control, but in the end, they're so bright and cheerful that you really don't care.
