A couple of days ago I bought Twinmarkers from a store called Action. I saw them before but didn’t buy them because I always used Copic Markers. But I read a blog post about someone who bought these and were pretty excited about it so I just had to test them out. The photo shows three sets of 12 markers and were only 3.99. I think I can buy exactly one copic ciao marker for that price. So it was a pretty good deal. They have a lot of different colors. You can also buy 3-pack set for 0.95.
I thought the Twinmarkers were pretty great. They even blend the colors a bit. I’m going to use them a lot and not worry if I’m ”wasting” my ink on a drawing because they are so cheap. Here some fanart of The Simpson. I did cheat a bit because I didn’t have the Twinmarker in yellow. I had to use my copics for it. 🙂 But everything else is Twinmarkers.
If you want to buy them you better hurry because they’re selling out very fast. I went a couple days later to buy some yellows and reds and they didn’t have many left.
Schmincke watercolors, Starry Colors (Kuretake) and white gel pen on Canson mixed media paper.
Same character that I drew before, but looks much better. I can still spot some small mistakes that I could’ve done differently, but I like the overall look of it. I don’t have that many colors on my Schmincke pallet. These ones are more meant to paint landscapes. I might buy the 24 half pan set.

I finally saw the movie on an air plane going to Japan. I was a little bit disappointing, maybe because I couldn’t understand half of what was being said due to the motors on the aircraft. I had to rely on subtitles. But then I saw a second time and I didn’t really like it all that much. All the thing I liked from Harry Potter were missing in this movie. I did like the character design of Newt.
Just a little self portrait. I kind of like it.
It was a certainly an experience drawing myself and trying to stay as accurate as possible without changing little things.
The reference picture was also from an angle I’m not used to drawing.
It was fun.
I started watching this show called Shadowhunters on Netflix and I’m really liking it. I just had to draw some fan art from it. I’m not totally pleased with the drawing, but I like the colouring.
I also started to read the books, I bought them sometime last year very cheaply but never gotten around to reading them. There is probably going to be more (and better) fan art of them in the future.
I’m in the beginning of book 4 now and I’m kinda curious about what’s going to happen because everything was wrapped up so nicely in the book 3. Let’s hope it’s just as good.
I always liked this scene in the movies.
Still kinda trying things out.
