Having acquired a suitable pad and tonal markers to add to my collection, I watched a number of YouTube videos explaining the technique. After viewing 5 or 6 I decided it was time to practise.
5.) After much time I completed the sketch to the best of my ability, detailing key features and establishing tone through the work. I also used two white and black grading pencils to add highlights and definition.
Overall I’m pleased with my outcome. I felt I successfully used the markers to add colour and depth, identifying areas of differing shade easily. The drill is realistic however the paper was small making it difficult to proportion on occasion. As well as this it would have been good to have a greater variety of coloured markers as I am very limited currently in the hues I choose. I also felt the models base is of a lower quality than the drill head but in my mind this is reflected by time constraints not personal ability.
