I used to paint my illustrations with comic markers (especially when I first knew about them) before using acrylics and watercolors. Whenever I explore a new painting technique or new paint/marker, I notice how the final result for my illustrations change as a result.
Since I used to daily draw and paint, I don’t always notice the changes in my illustrating style. However, when I finish painting I always get amazed by how I improved. Also, I noticed how different the feeling of each illustration is when using copies vs using acrylics and watercolors. If you paint a lot, you noticed which is painted with copics and which was painted with acrylics. I’ll post my recent illustrations which you can look at and compare the results:
Those were my recent illustrations where you can view them on my Instagram account: @Anwaar.saleh. Also, whenever I draw a new fashion illustration, I usually cover up the whole painting process on Snapchat: Artistakw.
Below are few illustrations using acrylics.
Did you notice the difference?
