I was given a set of cool markers as a gift for my birthday this year. To be quite honest, I was treating it like the expensive plates your family would only bring out on super special occasions. Definitely not for everyday use. I was very happy that I had received such a great gift, but at the same time, deep down…I was scared to use them. 😳😳😳
After having viewed a few vids online that demonstrated their use and noting the different end results on various paper types… that was it. My go-to for learning just about everything, kind of fell short.
I had learned what I was going to learn from Youtube (at least for the moment), so I took to a different platform. Instagram.
It’s a great resource for studying other artists as they live stream a session. You see them make choices at times even mistakes. All of it is a learning experience.
My Saturday mornings may no longer consist of waking up and eating a bowl of cereal while watching cartoons, but the next best thing is tuning into a live streaming of cartooning in progress.
No longer completely afraid of using markers, I colored in Frank – the Monster. The only thing left to do was to do it. True story. Happy coloring.
