You know, artists can be pretty odd about their tools. I guess just like any person working with their hands, the right tool for the job can mean the difference between a successful day or a tiresome day. I have recently rediscovered this amazing Marker, the Sakura Pigma micron 08. Sakura makes an amazing lineup of art markers, but none are as perfect for my hands and this particular graphic novel as this marker. It lays down the perfect lines, the perfect thickness, and it has that quality of traditional dip ink without the hassle of dipping every few seconds. I love it! It’s also perfect for stippling. The lines are gorgeous.You lift up your hand, and it gives you a nice thin edge, you press down just a little bit, and it gives you about as broad as a line as you would want for an outline on 9 x 12 paper. It’s amazing.It’s also perfect for stippling.
