On Monday I bid and "won" (HA!) a set of "Pastel" Tombow Brush markers on Ebay and they came in today. I can't believe I even bid on them because I am so NOT a "pastel" lover! But, I did, and I won....so I decided that I would force myself to use them on something. I really wasn't in the mood to draw today anything so I went HERE and printed out this chicken:
My number one rule was that I could only use the new markers (and black and white OF COURSE) and I had to use all of them. I was pleasantly surprised when all but one color was brighter than expected.... this is what I ended up with:
I'm embarrassed to admit that I also bid on a set of 72 Marvey Le Plume markers and won those too!!! FOR SHAME!!! But I got them for $43.05+ !!! THAT is a GREAT DEAL! The same thing would have cost me $155.70+ at Dick Blick online! Whew....OK, feeling better about the purchase now...Confession really is good for the soul :-)
I think YOU should go print a chicken out and see what you come up with! Coloring is a good thing. If you do PLEASE comment with a link so I can see...
