Grey marker demo
Last Friday, I did a lightning quick demo in my Storyboard class on using grey markers.
Here's the final piece. The original line drawing was for Dodge Avenger. I scanned in the black and white linework, printed it out onto Letramax marker pad, and went at it with Prismacolor French Grey markers. I apply markers like water colors- building from the lightest colors to the darkest, often times working wet-on-wet to achieve some blends.
This is serious old school methodology utilizing markers but for me, it's still quick and effective. I'm slowly but surely learning the nuances of my new Wacom tablet but between work, teaching and every other third obligation, my learning curve's been a little flat. The folks at Wacom say it's very intuitive and fortunately it is. I'm just trying to blend the best of analog and digital into my storyboard frames now.
