'TIGGR'
marker rendering of a tiger
I MADE IN 1998 - oooooooo old art but a fav of mine
TOOK ME FOREVER!!!

used 60 Chartpak AD makers ... I love them!
I had STABILayout markers ... but hated them for streaking
with a bit of white speedball ink put on with fine brush for the whiskers!

photo refer used

completed for my final year of marker rendering in college
oh in a way Id love John Wood to see this
b/c I butchered his classes and it be nice for him to see
I could make at least one nice piece!
yes I out did myself by about 400% on that one...
which is why you wont see any other marker rendings by me up... all my others looked horrid to mediocre... I cant do people! or fruit/food or cars.. well I cant draw cars so ofcourse I cant marker render them... I can do some alright wood and glass and passable metal as long as it isnt a trombone or french horn!

Fantastic work, even it's only piece of a tiger, in my guess him fangs are little too bent, but all rest....Wow....
Bravo, you put in effort here!

Thanks for the response... =) How do those Chartpaks compare to Prismacolors? Have you used both? I'm just kinda getting started with a small set of markers i picked up... always hear good things about Copic but after seeing this... :wow: wtf's up with Cartpak?? =D

I know it's all in the technique, just wondering what you thought before I invested too much more.

the only markers Ive used are STABILayout markers... but hated them for streaking ... but that was the only thing we were allowed to use back in the 80s in college... most good markers at the time were oil based and killed... brain cells and artists1 no kidding!!!

and than in the 98 I got my 60 Chartpak AD makers... I loved them!
but I never really continued to use them much after the marker rending course I took

Ive never used Copics....
but they seem to be a favourite...

the best thing to know with markers is get LOTS... and get all the neautrals and greys... warm and cool... you can blend with them and get great natural looking colours...

I have two packs of greys (cool & warm) in my wishlist at DickBlick.com I was planning on getting but they have Chartpaks too so maybe I'll try one of them before I invest too much more on the Prismas. :yum:

I don't think I know how to blend yet though... :no: I read that about using grays and tried it yesterday and nothing happened. :shrug: It didn't mess anything up but didn't really do anything either... :hmm: I really need to take a class but I have a habit of doing things on my own, which isn't always the best way I guess.

I'll try to upload what I'm talking about when I get off work this morning... I was thinking maybe the paper was just already over saturated or something so the gray just didn't take? :confused: I'll let you know and see what you think... photoshop's so much easier sometimes. :laughing:

that why tracing paper is good... it has a smooth surface and makes blending easier..

I'll definitely try that out... you can get it by the roll can't you? Or is better quality if I actually buy a pad of it?

I've also heard you can color on the back of more translucent papers and get cool effects... have you ever messed with that?

Sorry for all the questions... really want to pick your brain a lil though.:zombie: This piece is amazing!

Last one... for now. ;P Did you use the white speedball ink on the wrinkles going across the nose and stuff too? I really love this... more and more as I stare at it. =D

Im not sure... I always used the pads...

yes... it works well aswell... see if you can pick up a marker render book... or just go google a tutorial

b/c marker rendering is suppose to be a fast simple way to get the colour down so your art can be approved by a client... there are alot of tricks to the trade that a profession can let you in on...

like using oil pencil crayons for some sharp lines and details...

man... im really remembering alot of stuff I had mostly forgotten... its been a while since I did this

damn I dont think so... I could try digging up the original to see if I used the white speedball ink anywhere else than the whiskers...

I use to have a package of photos I shot of this... as a wip step by step... I took a whole roll of film shootin it... I did this over a weekend and wanted my teacher to see what Id done... since I rarely worked in class... as I found it to disruptive...

but those photos are packed away somewhere with about half of my pre marriage/child life! I may find them when I move... may... its doubtful!

Yeah I have very few variations in my gallery - can't bring myself to put up my other work because I hate it! :doh:
But I guess I just need much more practice :)
You seem to be well on your way :aww:
