The first marker man

It’s been a while since my last marker drawing, so I thought it was time to pick up the pad again and see what came out of it.

I had just seen a couple of cool, cartoonish illustrations in a magazine, They were added in an article about different types of personalities, and I just got an instant urge to try and draw something like it.

I’ve always admired people who were able to draw cartoons and comic strips, and were a huge fan of reading them as a kid.

I think it’s a wonderful way to express different kinds of human bahavior, and the limits of what kind of situations or expressions you can draw is basically unlimited.

Well, I thought this would be my first go at it then. My first ever attempt to try and draw a real comic book-style character.

I’d seen this professor-looking kind of man in the magazine I read, so I thought I would use that as an inspiration and try to make something similar.

So I drew up the outlines of the character with a pencil, went over the best lines with a felt pen and then erased all the pencil lines.

I then added some colour and shodows with a mix of pro markers.

This is how it ended up:

Being my first attempt, I’m very happy with it. And it was definitely not my last drawing of a cartoon character!
