Getting more comfortable with markers

I’ve been getting more and more comfortable using markers on my sketchbook. True, I hate the bleed thru, but I just ordered a sketchbook that apparently solves that; will write a review after I try it.

I have ventured a bit into using colors, both on a small 6″x4″ sketchbook as well as on a larger 8.5″ x 11″ one. I still mess up one of every three sketches (at least), but getting more comfortable every day.

Here are some of my latest efforts:

      Thanks Liz for dropping by! Actually you got me inspired to get back to sketching. After the Symposium I didn’t sketch in about a month. Then I figured that in that time you had finished like 4 sketchbooks! And when I saw that you were trying markers, I dusted mine and an enjoying the process again. Thanks for the inspiration!
