Anyone here use watercolour markers? What are some good brands and why use watercolour markers over something like copics?

>> No.3905831

I have also been interested in these for a while because I'm practicing watercolor painting. The reason to get any would be of course because you can draw fine lines with steady paint+waterflow while creating washes+mix like you usually do w/ watercolor. If they are refillable like those pentel aquash brushes w/ resevoir, it'd be nice. Fully prepared for the possibility that they may just be a gimmicky waste of money though.

Besides a set of 12 Winsor & Newton watercolour markers costs 43 goddamn euros in my nearest store, I can get a huge amount of supplies for that money. Kind of fucked up just like copics

TRY TO GIVE PEOPLE SOME FEEDBACK - many studies are left unreplied, which is a bit sad and can be quite demotivating for the people that try their best to improve, but are left directionless.

REMEMBER, if you've just started out you work will not be good, it doesn't need to be, just get in to the swing of actually drawing, and learning how to study. Most of all, enjoy it.

>> No.3905827

Line weight refers how a single line can become thicker or thinner depending on the amount of pressure you use. Can be very visually appealing if used correctly.

Looks like you just used 1000 short hairy lines to give a thick border to the octopus. Doesn't look good.

Thank you. Whats the best way to fix the line wieght=

>> No.3905884

First of all you don't want to use multiple lines when you could just use one.

Practice making longer lines and curves. Then practice making lines and curves that get fatter and thinner by changing the pressure you put down on the pencil.

I don't think it's about the level of realism. I think it's the personality of the work, the emotions it makes you feel. All souless art is is art that doesn't make you feel anything. Even a photo can have soul.

Any hyperrealism "LOOK AT ME I CAN COPY A PHOTOGRAPH" art. The only genre of art I truly hate. A 3 year old dipping their hand in paint and making a "turkey" painting from smashing their hand on the paper has 100x more soul.

And the thing with hyperrealism is that any competent artist like the examples posted in this thread can pull off a hyperrealism if they decided for some reason to waste a ton of time on it. But the Xerox printer artists wouldn't be able to pull of any of the art in this thread because the only thing they know how to do is copy photos.
