I’ve been seeing a LOT of art lately that’s done with Alcohol Based Markers, and some of it is amazing. Blick’s had an 85% Off sale on a 24-piece set, so I bought it to give them a try.
I am finding them SO challenging. My hat is off to all the Marker Artists out there! They don’t blend like watercolor, so getting shading and shadow is incredibly difficult. I also didn’t realize that you should use a specific type of paper with Markers, and I did this piece in my Sketch Journal and it bled through the paper like crazy!

This is how much it bled through the back of the page!
