i get a lot of material and tablet questions, and while these things are important…remember they are only tools!  using the same markers as an artist you admire won’t alone help you achieve greatness!  sure, materials are important and you might have better luck with prismacolor markers than crayolas, but i think its important to not let the materials define you (or work as an excuse)

work with whatcha got practice your booty off yea yea 

I love your art. The vivid colours in the dragon drawing are amazing, what markers do you use? :o

wow thank you so much!  i use a mixture of a buncha different kinds of markers, basically whatever markers float my way is what i end up using.  my favourites are the shinhan touch twin markers and my prismacolours.  but honestly its not always about the materials you use, but the technique you employ.  if you have lower end markers, a little photoshop editing can pump the colours!  

for those of you that have never heard of it, StoryCorps is a nonprofit project of sharing and listening to stories from people of all different backgrounds and beliefs in america.  the stories range from a fond conversation between a mother and her adopted queer son to gripping and sincere painful memories of losing loved ones.  possibly my favourite part about the project is how remarkable it feels to really listen to people.  they have a small (but growing!) collection of animated versions of the stories on their youtube, and then the full 50,000+ recordings on their website.

they also have a wonderful 20 minute animated story compilation.
