Hi! What type of markers do you use and where do you get them (for cheap ) ? And also, what ype of paper/program do you use to draw ? Thank you so much !
Hi, I use Copic Markers. I have a local art store that sells them for a reasonable price. So I buy them there. Whenever Copic is at a convention, its also a good idea to stock up then. What I usually do, I buy new colors at my local art store, and when the convention comes, if I use the color often, I would buy the refill ink. The refillable ink is almost the price of a marker but will last for a looooong time. Its worth the investment.
When I started to collect markers, I was very particular on the colors I wanted. They are pricey, so I wanted to make sure the few I got I can use and blend and mix color. Try sticking to a color palette you use often and then build from that. I don’t buy 100 at a time, I buy maybe one or 2. I also keep a log of all my colors on a color chart, which helps a lot when shopping for more markers and knowing what the color looks like on that paper.
As for the Paper, I prefer bristol board, but it is a bit more on the expensive side. However I love the thickness of the paper, and how well the ink blends. I also have a ton of marker paper and copic paper from when I was in school but I seldom use it now. However it is very useful and good to use with copics. Currently, my friend gave me a stack of super thick multipupose paper/cardstock and I’ve been using that for almost everything.
For digital clean up I use photoshop.
