I had been slowly dying of jealousy ever since my roommate let me try using some of her Prismacolor markers. My sharpie loyalty went right out the window at that moment, and it was only a matter of time before I would get my hands on my own set. Besides, I want to get into some more serious science drawing, and I might as well get some better tools, right?
I could finally justify the purchase recently after making a few sales through Etsy, so here they are! Only went for 72, don't think I'd know what to do with any more than that.
The past few days I have only done small sketches, practicing different patterns and blending. They don't give as much precision as the fine sharpies, so I might still incorporate them for some details, but overall I am in love with the Prismacolor markers.
And here is the result of my first foray into a serious drawing. I took the reference photo myself.
The final photo does not do justice to the color mixing I did in the eyes - I'll take a better photo tomorrow in the sunlight.
