Love Beam: Crayola Supertip Tutorial

I’ve talked a lot about waterbased markers over the years, and different ways to use them, and generally they get compared to Crayola Supertips (cheap, can buy them almost anywhere in the US) or to Kuretake Clean Color Real Brush markers (handle really nicely, don’t tear up paper, come in a huge range of colors).  After the Arteza Fieldtest, I wanted to show folks how Crayola Supertips can be used much the same way, for MUCH cheaper.

EDIT: this post really blew up for me! If you’re into my work consider following me here as I start to upload more of my back log! Or even on Instagram, Dandedoodles, where everything is up to date!

So I was asked to make a slime tutorial!

1) start with your lines! Remember to be fluid here, keep things organic and rounded. This will help when you start coloring!

2) Now when I color slime I choose to line in color as well as it helps create that “clear” or “jello-like” look later on.

3) I started by picking my color set! I find that having a five color set usually helps me create a smooth, goopy transition with my markers but that’s just me! Now I always start with my darkest color trying to make the centers. Ever have Gushers? Imagine you’re making that. And that’s where all your main bits are going to be. Whether they’re the biggest overlaps in body parts or where your slime’s innards are going to be.

4) Here’s where you start establishing shadows that aren’t primarily due to overlap or innards!

5) Start to round out your shadows and your centers from panel 3.

6) Continue to follow that liquid rounded feeling of your shading. Here is probably where you’ll start to reach the edges of your lines.

7) Finish with your colors and leave your established lighted areas pretty pale.

8) I feel like this could be entirely optional depending on taste but it looks really clean to me. So here I blend from darker colors to lighter colors using my colorless blender. Careful though, depending on how wet your piece is you could have some bleeding really take over your lines here.

9) Fill in any other spaces here! I.E.) clothes, facial details, markings, accessories, etc.

10) I use the Gelly Roll pens for all my high lighting but really a nice gel pen will get the job done. Again, product used is based on artist comfort in my opinion. I also usually clean up my lines in this stage as there was bleeding that occurred in the colorless blending stage!

I hope to do video tutorials in the future, but hopefully this helps out the way it needs to!

NOTES:
The colors I used were from the Prismacolor Premier set and were-
☆PM-39
☆PB-40
☆PM-48
☆PB-134
☆Sky Light Blue (I unfortunately could not find the number for this one)
☆PB-121 (my colorless blender)
☆PM-8 (Pink)
☆ then black

My liners were from the 20 count Triplus Fineliner set (they’re pretty well priced at Michael’s and Target but at Michael’s you can usually use a 40% coupon on them!)

Then my highlight gel pen was the wonderful Gelly Roll pen! They’re pretty cheap and you can find them at most craft stores and online for about the same price across the board!

Getting Started with Markers (specifically Prismacolors)

Yeeeeeep. Marker seems to be this daunting medium that benefits from having some sort of “starting guide” for that very reason. Zero technique is talked about here, this is all about supplies. And because of that, this probably works for most brands of markers, Prisma or otherwise.
