that's so great :meow: and they look perfect :nod:

here at my drawing class this year, our proffesor teached us how to do typography all by hand, and even we worked on a sign for an imaginary shop creating our own typography styles all in traditional art by hand. I think is very cool when we can do that kind of works, because most of the time now people go to the computer and use common fonts to create those things

I tip my hate to you sir, I could never manage that with makers (uses Photoshop for coloring things). Nice work!

all you need is a bit of practice. i know how to colour things by hand using traditional media, but i'm pretty rusty when it comes to the computer. i still need to learn things with that when i get the time :)

I ink by hand, but computer makes coloring and shading really easy. Before I got Photoshop I used to hate coloring so all my art was black and white. ^^ You end up using a bunch of layers (for different colors and shades) with your lineart on multiply.

Awesome. So how did you get two versions of Megatron lineart on the same kind of paper? trace-over? what's the white pencil crayon and white gel pen for?
Reply
:iconmarkerguru:
markerguru Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2011  Professional
its all on the same paper.
i did all the lineart first, then i scanned that to save if i ever just for my own personal fun want to play around with colouring it on the computer.
then i got my markers out and coloured it up.
the white pencil crayon and gel pen are for areas i wanted a bright white highlight on outline around megatron. also the stars in the background. i use them to accent areas on the image. i hope that answers your questions :)

Thanks. I also looked up the markers you used- pretty expensive. I sent you a note a long while ago, but I guess you're just busy. Keep up the great work anyways.

in most cases the best art supplies are usually the most expensive one. i know that these markers beat the prisma and tria ones hands down in quality. and i own all of these brands. tria used to be good, but i don't know what happened to them, but now i'm so disappointed in them. the prisma ones tend to leak at time and i dislike the multi nib they have.

What type of markers did you use? Prisma? And with the gel pens and white pencil crayon-do they both color over marker?
Thanks!

That really is a classy color scheme for Megatron. I like the fact that red was added to his color scheme. It's aggressive and fitting. :D
