So I joined Species_X_Change on FA, they have biweekly round where you are assigned a certain species to draw your character as. This looks a very exciting and fun club and I look forward to joining future rounds. This one was for round 23 and the theme was aquatic mammals, I got assigned the Narwhal! Cool!



The Narwhal horn: The horn is actually a tusk, an incisor tooth that projects from the left side of the upper jaw in a leftward spiral helix. It is rare for females to have them but they do sometimes.

I just love these prismacolor markers, I’m having such fun with them!

More experimenting with markers. Materials: large moleskine sketchbook, micron pens, and prismacolor markers.

Marker Inga and Reindeer
Did something a little different and decided to fill in the background. I kind of like the marker lines.

Marker Inga and Reindeer Process
Refined the initial sketch on my Cintiq, printed it out then used carbon graphite paper to laboriously transfer the image into my Moleskine sketchbook.

Colored Markers
So I finally broke out the colored markers I bought at the beginning of the year, a set of 48 prismacolor markers on sale at Michaels. I’ve dallied with them some, but I was determined to really create something decent with them.

I pulled out the Moleskine sketch book and doodled a picture of Inga, inked it with micron pens then started coloring it with the colored markers. It turned out horrible. But I learned a lot with this mistake. So I started again. Another picture of Inga, nothing fancy, inked it with microns and colored again.

More marker experiments
Inga. Again. Photos look better than the scan.

Marker Dromaeosaur
A Dromaeosaur.

Materials used: large moleskine sketchbook, micron pens, prismacolor markers and some white acrylic paint for the highlights.

I’m learning a lot with these and really enjoying the medium.

Had a new idea for drawing her tack. Guess it’s not really THAT different. Added some jewels to her bridle and the trilobite pendant to the chest strap.

Spent over 4 hours on this linework.

She can be quite ferocious with it. She’ll drag it around too and drop it down the stairs.
