The faster I can draw the better. I like being able to communicate a concept or idea through drawing but being able to doe it accurately and quickly is very important. Marker Pens gives the clear definition of Pen and Ink coupled with a speed that surpasses Water Colour.
Again it works well for initial concept sketching and can by itself or combined with other media, allow for a completed work of art or design rendering.
Markers combined with some ball point pen it goes a long way for putting down a 40sec concept.
Only markers with the addition of very little fine liners give a very effective outcome and can take all but a few minutes.
With a more controlled application of the markers combined with fine liners the effect comes closer to an actual rendering rather than just a concept drawing. This two can take up to 10min to complete.
Works amazingly well for quick jewellery concept sketches.
Combined with pen for a quick jewellery design sketch meant for a client.
Works equally well for any quick concept design like clothing design.
The markers used in this sketch were of the cheap "made-for-kids" type and combined with fine liner and a bit of pencil for a great effect.
It's easy to imagine how far marker pens can take you toward what would be considered a completed art work.
