Monkey See, Monkey Deux

Here is a little something I whipped up a few weeks back and worked on again last night…

Prismacolor markers

The first one is just to illustrate a bit of my process. I use a 30% French grey Prismacolor marker and really just go wild with it. Big broad strokes until I start to see something in the mess. Then I go back in and darken where I need to. I’m pretty sure I’ve explained the process before, but I’ll repeat it for anyone who hasn’t read my older posts. Does anyone even read these?

Anyways. On the second phase, the marker was completely dried so the values were a bit lighter. I went back in with the same 30% French grey and pushed the darks (the wonderful thing about Prismacolor markers). Finally, I tried something new and added some even darker values with graphite pencil, instead of just adding line work like I usually do. Loved the way these two mediums worked together.
