Murray_Cholowsky: Pen & Ink - Shading/Techniques/Lesson (1 of 4) Welcome to the world of ink art!! This will be an introductory article showing you some different types of line and shading techniques that are the basics for most ink drawings.

These techniques can be used on their own or can be combined in a single drawing, so don't be afraid to experiment with this medium. Unlike graphite, ink is a permanent medium that is not very forgiving as far as making corrections to your work. Murray_Cholowsky: Pen & Ink - Shading/Techniques/Lesson (1 of 4)

I Like Markers I have been working on a mural for a local elementary school, and they want to incorporate in their mural some owls. So, I have had to do a lot of owl sketches recently. While the final mural will be much simpler and stylized, I wanted to share a realistic sketch that I made for practice. I am marking this post as advanced mostly because without blending, your stroke technique is what will define patterns and textures. As this is just a personal sketch, and not for the client, I wanted to color it simply and more for my own reference. So, as with many of my personal sketches, my goal is to work quickly and with a limited color palette. I Like Markers

An Introduction to Markers An Introduction to Markers By Sylver / Sylvia T. Leung. Firstly, I'll have to warn you that makers aren't everyone's 'cup of tea.' By 'markers' I mean the really good, professional kind, not Crayola or Pentel (not bashing the companies, just stating their markers aren't what I'm going to talk about.)
Art Marker Pens: The Best Markers To Draw With Art Marker Pens: The Best Markers To Draw With The best markers are the ones that are reliable and give quality results, but like anything the best markers are quite expensive, but there are also cheaper alternatives. The first markers are the high end and professional double ended markers from Prismacolor I've heard a good amount of feedback and read reviews on what people think about these art markers and the results are very positive, with a combination of broad tip and fine tips these are very versatile markers for drawing with. And the results when used give a clear color streak and produce professional results, although I have not used these myself yet. these would be the top choice based on others reviews of art markers.
