Marker Sketches

Throughout my college career, my teachers have frequently told me to stay away from marker usage in pieces. so as long as i can remember i have been trying to abandon any marker use. I now understand why markers are so difficult to use properly. the artists technique and style need to grow independently, before drawing with marker can be used efficiently. Drawing with marker allows you to have solid crisp lines while maintaining a looseness and free flowing line. To draw effectively with marker i think you really gotta know your stuff, you cant draw with marker without total confidence in your lines. Im now trying to bring some marker work back into my sketching, and it is awesome. Later tonight i will scan some more character sketches, using marker line work and digital color, i am very pleased with the results so far.
