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
