Great work! I do a lot of little caricatures with various coloured Sharpies. I can't imagine getting the kind of texture and tonal changes you do with them. I'm guessing this drawing is fairly large, so the line weight is relatively small in relation to the drawing? Did you do it in all black Sharpie?
That's cool. I need to buy more various colors myself. I'd love to do something like the McLaren in different colors. The drawing is around 11x17 inches. I have it filed away already and I'm too lazy to dig it out to measure. LOL It might be a little larger than that but it's an approximation.
Yes, I drew it all in black Sharpie. I used the fine tip for the obvious areas and the not so fine for the larger black areas. I had to be kind of quick about it though to avoid streaks. It did help drawing it on 100lb smooth bristol.
That makes sense! I only use the standard-sized Sharpies and draw on regular printer paper since they're just quick 15-minute caricatures and it would be expensive to use my good Strathmore bristol for them. It would be interesting to try a more serious drawing on "real" paper and with different types of Sharpie. You've got me intrigued!
I know what you mean about conserving paper. The good stuff is getting pretty expensive now. It's ironic how much difference the type of paper makes when you're going for something serious. I didn't realize how much difference it actually made until about four years ago. Before then all I used was 50lb Strathmore drawing paper. Good stuff but it fades to yellow pretty quickly.
