Illustration Experiment

So right now I am lightly experimenting techniques to illustrate quick pieces.

This was done with pen and Prismacolor markers, did it all during 2 of my lunch breaks at work. Only took an hour and 20min to complete total, so not too shabby.
Also wasn't sure where to put this, but I used pen

It's Rapunzel from the movie Tangled. Good job! I must have watched that movie 5 times with my granddaughters.

You are very talented.

Nice work Jaor.. very good job.. Prismacolor can be used in layers.. and if done carefully.. you can get rid of a lot of those wash lines.. but it looks good as is

I am familiar with Prismacolor markers and other markers in that range (Copic and AD). By wash lines, do you mean the "shadows" I tried to create. Right now I have a limited color selection, so I cannot layer different colors to give proper depth into the drawing. All I did was lay a few layers after a layer dried, of the same color, to make it "darker" and tried to intentionally leave parts with only one layer for high lights.

And it is ok for a quick rendering, I need to practice more with techniques.

It IS good Bro.. you did a fine job with it. And the technique you used is a valid one. I just don't like harsh shadow lines (for the most part) in my drawings.. But there is definitely a place for that... especially in cartoon work.

One example of what I mean is the line on her chest..again.. nothing necessarily wrong with it.. just kind of detracts from the rest of the fine work IMO. A larger range of pens would definitely help you.. one suggestion.. get a couple of VERY LIGHT greys.. they can go over what you have and act as a shader..

I see what you are saying. Yeah, I need to work on quick illustration work. I have done "realistic" marker renderings where I can spend countless hours into it, like my colored pencil drawings, I am trying to avoid that and make these only a few hours. I struggle with quick turnarounds.

As for the pen issue, I have been wanting to try out different brush tips. I was watching an illustrator only use a brush tip for all his lines and it was amazing. Definitely a lot of control is needed, comes with practice though, so we shall see how that turns out.

lol I wish I had grays to use, but right now my lightest is 40%, I am out of them right now. I plan on buying a lot Copic markers for personal use, I currently use my Prismacolor markers for work, so I don't need as big of a range of colors and shading. Hopefully I can buy them as soon as my funds allow it...right now my car is absorbing every bit of my spending money haha
