Shanker by Tallulah Cunningham

by Tallulah Cunningham

Prompt: Scary Fairy
prompted by: Linnea, during Sketch Fest #108 (April, 2019)

Be afraid of the creatures at the bottom of the garden, amidst the hawthorns. Under sketch done in yellow highlighter then copic markers and then colour pencils. As always: you can find me on instagram at melanippos, on Patreon and Twitch as Papertigress, and on twitter as fabricmagpie


Linnea says: Very nice job, and fun idea for this prompt! I like the texture of the mixed media. ~ Reply?

Kathy Nutt says: This is so cool. I am also really enjoying this style with the highlighter. ~ Reply?

     Tallulah Cunningham replied to this: The highlighter was fun - but at the same time it slightly repelled the copic marker, slightly sealing the paper. I think playing with just highlighters would be an interesting evolution. Part of the use of the highlighter was to ensure I wouldn't be precious about the sketch - but to keep loose and dynamic.
