All of my recent The Lord of the Rings illustrations compiled!

Reblog. Because this is one of my favorites and I wish I had time right now to paint more.

dragonshoes asked: hi! i've obsessed with colored marker art the past two years do you have any tips for amateurs like meeeee? :D


Answer:

Hiii! Just have fun and experiment! There’s lots of different kinds of artist markers. Personally, my favorites are Tombow and Copic. It’s good to keep in mind the aesthetic of your medium when making art. Through practice, you can learn manipulate annoying quirks into something lovely!

I’m self-taught, and I would not be where I am today without lots of bungled drawings, sketches, paintings…really anything! Don’t let bad work discourage you. Just keep making stuff!
