  1. Inspired by the threads @SparrowMarie has done, I figured it was time to start one myself. This thread will focus mainly on Mythomorphia by Kerby Rosanes, and Creatopia by Vexx, with Faber Castell Polycromos coloured pencils being the main media used in Mythomorphia, and a combination of Ohuhu Kaala and Copic Sketch Markers in Creatopia. Alcohol markers unfortunately bleed through pages so won't work in most of the Kerby Rosanes books, but that's why I picked up some of the compliation books. Creatopia, on the other paw, is single sided printing, which is rather handy, and the artwork within really does lead towards a much more vibrant style that you can get with alcohol markers, which is a good thing I'd say Odds are this is a slow-drip thread, doubly so the fact I bounce between a variety of different things. ^So yeah, here's the covers of the two books in question... So after a flipthrough or two, I decided for Mythomorphia that the first piece I would work on is "The Stag". There's just something about those antlers that kept calling to me, so I figured why not, let's do it. Like usual for me, I didn't really have any particular plan, and rolled with whatever felt like would be good for the next step. At some point I came up with the idea of there being some sort of glow of light coming from the middle-top left hitting the antlers, and I liked it, so rolled with that too... For those wondering on the colours and layering... Base: Middle Cadmium Red Initial shadows: Walnut Brown Secondary Shadows: Warm Grey V Initial mid-tone: Magenta Highlights: Dark Cadmium Orange, Cadmium Yellow, Cream, White Next time I'll make sure pencils aren't in the way of the art ^_^;;; This past week I've been mainly doodling with the alcohol markers, as I haven't had much time (or energy) after work to do much of anything, but I've wanted to spend more time with the markers anyways, even if "it's only 10-15 minutes" - a philosophy I've tried to take with all of my media and hobbies. I consider it a win even if I get to spend "only 15 minutes" because it's still sitting down, having some fun with hobbying, and relaxing. Here's the left side of that same page, where I'm using my Faber Castell Pitt Dual Markers, as I got some in and figured I could use them in here. I do like them, although they blend very VERY differently compared to the alcohol ones as they're water based India ink. Short version is I do like them, but odds are after this page they won't see much use, as it's very easy to make the paper start pilling, but also they wind up warping the pages somewhat while still having the bleed through once you get layers going. And for those who are curious, what media I have and use at the moment...
