Night and Day: Colored Pencil Vs. Art Marker

Hello Citizens of the Blogosphere!

As followers of this blog know, after almost half a year of using artist grade colored pencils, I am starting to get into coloring with art markers. In the short time I have been using these mediums, I have developed a fondness for both of them.

In this post, I will reveal the results of an experiment I did comparing the different mediums.

Night and Day: Colored Pencil Vs. Marker 

Step 1: Start with a black and white illustration.

This is my original ink illustration entitled Kailani.

Step 2: Color the illustration using colored pencils.

This is the version I colored a while back using colored pencils.

Step 3: Color the same illustration using art markers. 

This is the version I did recently with Copic, ProMarker and Prismacolor Markers.
