MARKERS. SIGH.

I'm currently culling through what seems to be endless files searching for additions to do an updated portfolio (I'll be back on the job market soon!), when I came across this old freelance job I had done ages ago. It was being developed from a children's book called MOON DOG, if I'm remembering correctly. I was particularly pleased with the fact I was able to do this giant marker comp in one take (I think it was the scale of this thing that was so daunting)--I remembered being terrified I'd make a stupid mistake three quarters through. Markers are a lot less forgiving than photoshop and the convenience of a "command z"!

Perfection!

You're a marker genius. How do you blend them so well? Do you use rubbing alcohol?

you got nerves of steel, andy - it's a beaut!
much impressed with the blending(so subtle)and texture, makes it look like you've actually used wash and gouache.

Thanks all! Good question, Kristen. I actually used alcohol based markers (copics); as well as their corresponding refill viles and in the case of the bg, applied with paper towel.

The texture and colors are amazing. I don't know anyone who does what you can do with markers. Screw command-z...
