sorry if I have some wrong spelling (hope not...)
when I don't like to use eraser, I make a really dirty sketch and trace with pen. if I don't like the drawing or it's not balanced I trace with pencil and draw it again. it's good to use new paper and trace it, cuz if you rub too much w/ eraser and use maker to color, the ink will bleed
and I don't xerox my work, but I heard it's good to xerox and color it w/ marker.
I try not to make mistake, but if I do... I make it look like a shadow and cover the lines
4~6 hours in coloring
sometimes it will take more than that
btw where do you buy your materials?...
but I won't buy them yet... I'm still at the beginner stage
keep your Art up! ))))
No wonder your works are so refined and beautiful. You put so much love and patience on every one of them
2 little questions, if you don't mind
01. when passing the drawing to another piece of paper, you use any kind of thinner paper or you just put the orginal sketch under the new sheet and draw what you see below it?
02. after using the eraser to clean the lines of the picture, have it ever happened to you too see the lines have faded a bit, turning gray but not staining the paper (it happens to me all the time, you know, althogh the message on the side of my pen says "water and fade proof. Pigment ink" x.x I wonder if the matter is with the pen or the way I use the eraser over it x.x)
I'd be very gald if you could answer those questions, as I've sadi in another commnet, I'm your fan, you sure draw very well ^^
(my table surface is made of plastic sheet and has a fluorescent light under)
A2 yes, sometimes my lines do fade after using eraser (that is why it's good to trace drawings)
but it also matters with the type of eraser you use and the way you erase the pencil line.
I recommend brands like TOMBO, PILOT or FABER-CASTELL (dust-free) eraser
(make sure to choose a plastic eraser)
and when you erase, rub it gentle and lightly. erase in one direction or stroke
hope it helps
I'll make sure to check for eraser you recomended (usually I use he chepaest eraser I find, since I finish them very quickly x.x) and, what do you mean by "plastic eraser"?
Btw, thanks for all the help, I'm still your fan
i love your art style.
If only I have those tools...
just have to look for the right one for
you. it's trial and error
