Design markers + figure drawing = fun!

For my advanced structural class, I just put down a pretty penny on a set of 12 prismacolor warm gray design markers, and some graphics 360 paper. It's the stuff that industrial, fashion, and interior designers use. 

I decided to give it a try for fine art.

I was pleasantly surprised by how nicely one could blend without the aid of paper texture. It was buttery smooth paper, but by constantly changing markers, I was able to lay up gradation.

The first two images are of 5 minute quickies. They aren't very good-- still trying to get a handle of the markers.
The last image was about 2 hours, give or take. Pretty happy with it. Too bad marker can't erase though-- couple anatomy issues...
