Artists Toolbox: Markers
Artists Tool Box: Markers
So today I want to talk to you guys about one of my favourite colouring tools: markers.  We've all seen them and used them, from the scented ones that some of us tried not to lick in grade 1 to the Crayolas that are everywhere to Sharpie Markers in the back-to-school section to the fancy markers that can only be bought in art supply stores.  So here's what you need to know about markers :la:
The Basics
Cheap or expensive, easy to find or not, markers can be easily broken down into 2 types: water-based and alcohol-based.  For the sake of simplicity, I'm going to stick with 4 of the most common brands of art markers: Sharpies, Prisma Colors, Copics and Lyra Aqua Brush Pens.  Of these, only the Lyra markers are water-based; the other 3 are alcohol based.
Lyras, Copics and Prisma Colors tend to be double ended; one end tends to have a wider, wedge shaped tip and the other end typically has a finer tip or a brush.  Sharpies are single ended

I'm a student learning how to do 3D rendering and animation but for right now the only art I do is on normal pencil and paper and I'm trying to add more color to them. I write my own stories, poems, and other creative writing.
