When I realized that I want to draw with markers, I thought that I would not need anything else besides them. And I had no idea what colors to start with. I know exactly where to begin now, and I'm happy to share it with you.
If you have already decided on the theme of your illustrations, you can choose a theme set, SKETCHMAKER has set for every eye of the beholder. But if you still don't know what you want to draw (food, architecture, landscape, portrait, fashion, manga, etc.), and just decided to try markers out, then here is my universal palette. I have selected 13 basic colors of SKETCHMARKER markers that can be purchased individually:
You can buy these colors both in the "chisel/fine" format (light marker body), and in the "chisel/brush" format (SKETCHMARKER Brush PRO, black marker body).
The paper is different, it can fail and spoil the impression from the markers, if it's been selected incorrectly.
Marker paper is available in different weight, it can be either very thin (75 g / m2) or very thick (300 g/m2). I recommend you to start with medium-weight paper: SKETCHMAKER has Marker Line sketchbooks with a paper weight 160 g / m2, it's what you need to start with.
Of course, you may not need it, because there are techniques where the liner is not used at all, but I still recommend to take it. You can choose one liner with a thickness of 0.1 mm or 2 liners of 0.05 and 0.3 mm. These are universal options.
SKETCHMARKER has very cool new items − sets where everything is already there: 10 markers, a sketchbook and a liner, packed in an aesthetic cardboard box. The theme of the sets is very different, and I am sure that you will find your own!
Create! It's good for your health!
I wish you all new cool sketches!
