Oh! And did you make the background with markers too? 8O

Nope, I made the background with watercolour pencils! c: it made the paper go all wavy, though...not doing it again unless I'm using thicker paper 8DDD;

Ohh! I have those! Haha, I thought..
A good way to make it less wavy is ironing it. xD
We do that in our art class.. It helps somewhat. :meow:

Hmm, I should try that! I've heard of ironing before but I'm scared I might mess it up or something xD

I have no idea if I've commented on this before, but can I just say seeing that you can stand the cases up has changed my life?
I got a set of 48 markers for my birthday and they came in the cases and I don't know why I didn't figure out you could stand them up before!! >____< [isafailure]

Also-also. A question! What kind of paper do you use? (Though I guess it's possible whatever you get I can't get in the states, its worth asking.) The paper I use now has a very rough finish and it bleeds like no one's business. Ugly linework abound! (It also is a hell of a hard time getting flat marker colors, or nice blending...)

ALSO
this picture is ridiculously adorable
AND SO WITH THAT I END THIS ABSURDLY LONG COMMENT

LOLOL I probably wouldn't have noticed either if I hadn't seen them standing like that at the art store I got them XDD AND HEY you got Prisma markers? that's AWESOME I love them to pieces 8) haha! I also have the 48 set but I had to pay for it myself 8DDD;; absolutely worth it, though!

And yeah, I use this paper-> [link] it's the typical block they sell here 8DD; the paper's thicker than printer paper, but markers still bleed through the page so I have to put another one underneath it xD; and yeah, my markers bleed over the lines a lot, too! you just can't see it unless you look closely 8DDD;;; but I guess you just have to look for one that suits you idk? haven't been able to find a paper that doesn't make my markers bleed, though!

and pfftt long comments are fun plus I'm such an art nerd I love talking about these things BUT I THINK YOU ALREADY NOTICED THAT

xDDDD When I got them, I spent like ten minutes trying to open the case... all like "THIS IS THE WORST PACKAGING, THEY SHOULD'VE GOT ME THE TRAYS" OTL
And yes, I do have them, and I loooove them! <33 They're a bit hard to get used to (I'm especially bad at getting light, even skin tones...) but I've been using them a lot so I'm getting used to them. 8D It's helping me just improve my general drawing skills too so yeah. Its good. 8D

I got a block of smooth bristol paper at the art store and ffhfjf;; its so smooooth. I spent the entire ride home fondling it xD; Its lovely and thick and doesn't bleed and I love it. The downside is that it only comes in 15-page blocks so it probably won't last long because I go through paper like whoa ;_;

YAYYY LONG COMMENTS it's nice to be able to ramble about paper and markers to someone lol, everyone I know has no clue what I'm talking about <_>

hahaha I know right?? I love talking about paper and markers and stuff 8D I tend to ramble about different kinds of paper and fineliners when I'm at school and none of my friends there are artists so they're like "YOU'RE INSANE LOL I DON'T EVEN" 8'DDD AH WELL---

also what is that BRISTOL PAPER I need to get some >8C I've never actually taken the time to look for good paper, since it's hard to find specific art stores here...but I think it'll be worth it in the end so I shall look for it whenever I get the time *u* yes!

xDDD My friend is really into Pigma micron pens so at least we have that to ramble about together. But she uses charcoal almost exclusively, which I cannot stand, and I use Photoshop (and now markers WHOO) so we tend to bore each other... OTL

MMM IT IS SO LOVELY YOU SHOULD GET SOME [rubs face all over it]
They have it on DickBlick! --> [link]
DickBlick is awesome anyway, because almost everything they sell is at a discount (Prismas are sold at like 50% off, I think Copics are sold at 25% off), plus they ship internationally! And if you google "DickBlick" coupons you can find free shipping codes, sometimes. I could sing the praises of DickBlick forever, but I'll stop myself xDD

I also found, totally out of the blue, this awesome tiny sketchbook at the bookstore, for like seven dollars, and the paper is super thick and smooth, with no bleedthrough. I took it with me when I went to an amusement park and used it to draw people standing in line. [/RAMBLE]

Awsome!

but I have a question. when you are inking the sketch, how do you erase the sketch without crumpling up the paper?
Reply
:iconkurisquare:
kurisquare Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2010
I erase very carefully and I use thick paper! not only for erasing but also because thin paper makes markers bleed a lot o__o

kurisquare Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2010
yeah, I use printer paper for doodling but a thicker one when it comes to markers and such. There are many differences between them so you have to look for one that suits you best! might take a while but it's totally worth it (:

Ill try~ another question,if you dont mind.

Do you erase sections? say, ink the face then erase that, then ink the hair, then etc.

kurisquare Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2010
no, I usually erase everything once I'm done with inking the whole thing (:

cuanto material
yo no paso de los prismacolor...
sabes e querido saber como darles un buen coloreado a mis dibujos
...
talves con plumones no?
Reply
:iconkurisquare:
kurisquare Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2010
los plumones son buena opción, al menos a mí me encantan y desde que empecé a usarlos no los he soltado *n* aunque depende de tu estilo también, hay estilos que se ven mejor con plumones que se ven mas sólidos y otros con lá;pices de colores, que se mezclan más y son más "suaves" por así decirlo...pero bueno, se trata de probar hasta que encuentres lo que más te acomode 8D

They're lots of fun. They're kind of like watercolors but with way more control.
