Adventures in markers

So I needed to create some promotional art for my trip to FWA. I plan on having in my art book some watercolors, some colored pencil stuff, a few Precocious strips... and some examples of marker sketches.

Wait, I've never done a marker piece. These Copic gray scale markers haven't been touched yet. I SHOULD PROBABLY TOUCH THEM.

So, since furries like the cute, I went to Google and did an image search for "cute fox."







(Hey, it's another thing furries like!)

It frightens me that this is what happens when I start sketching without a plan... but it's kinda nice for not having a plan! Marker vets might cry at my horrid work, but I don't care. It's my first time using the darn things for a project and I liked messing around with them. (I also found out I bought the WRONG KIND of Copics tonight. Whoooooops. Oh well, these are fun too.)

There's no such thing as the wrong kind of Copics. They're all funny smelling art crack. ;D

These both look very nice! They'd make good samples for sketchbook commissions if you're interested in doing those at a con - furries seem to love getting sketchbook commissions.

You'll be fine at the con. No worries. Just remember to have fun. :D
