Does anyone know what he used for this piece? Is it Markers and color pencil?
I'd love to learn how to color my artwork this way.
Some years ago Lambey asked him for a tutorial and he got these answers...maybe it can be useful for you too. (http://www.drawingboard.org/viewtopic.p ... 656#275656
)....ah, and maybe you alreadyknew it.(':wink:')
Wow....thanks for responding so fast, Mr. Timm. Ok ok....no tutorial. How about a few quick questions on materials then?
What type of brush do you prefer for inking?
Do you really blend colors using tissue paper ?
Do you use prismacolor pencils on top of the markers?
Last question, do you use regular office paper, or the biefang marker paper?
Sorry to be such a geek, but Im just curious.
i never could ink with a brush....or a crowquill or any "respectable" tools...i use crappy cheap felt pens almost exclusively...pilot razor points, bic flairs, sharpies, marksalots, etc...staedtler pigment liners (but mostly just for corrections over white-out)....i LOVE the pentel "presto" white-out pens, don't know how i ever survived without 'em....sometimes i use white gel pens for fine corrections...
yep, on top of marker base-coat, lay down some color-erase pencil, then smear it with a tissue or paper towel....it's great for that slight "blush" on girls' nose/cheek area, for example...you can blend prismacolor pencil the same way, to a degree, but you gotta REALLY bear down...
prisma on top of markers:
sure...i try to do as much modelling as possible with just the markers, but i usually have to go back in with prisma pencil, to clean up hard edges, hit highlights with white, etc...
you can even reverse the process....base coat of marker, prisma pencil on top, then go over the pencil with more marker...the marker ink melts the pencil, creates a kind-of random blurry/scumbly effect...it's really hard to control (and has a tendency to gum up the marker tip), so i don't do it very often (usually by mistake!)...
cheap old xerox paper works best for me...NOT laser-copier paper (too waxy), just plain ol' staples five-bucks-per-ream crap paper... bristol papers and boards soak up the ink too fast, suck the markers dry REAL quick...i tried the bienfang marker paper a LONG time ago, don't remember why i didn't like it....
