Marker Shading WHAT NOT TO DO

So. Marker shading. There’s a lot to cover when in comes to shading with markers but there are a few basic points that will help you out a lot.

That’s what we are going to talk about in this video. I’m going to show you:

– How to get smooth and even marker coverage
– Why you shouldn’t worry about going outside of your sketch with the markers
– How to reduce pen lines from bleeding when using markers on top

Have fun and let me know if you have any questions!
