Would anyone be interested in a Promarker group? or, adding one with the Copic groups?
I would love to see a promarker's group. I use them, and there aren't too many groups out there.
If you have no problem being in a Promarker group, I can see no problem, other than being enticed to try them. LOL
Has there been anymore thought on the ProMarker's group?
I would also love to see a promarker's group, there really aren't that many about. I have found a couple of good tutorial sites as I need help with my colouring in. lol
No, there hasn't. I would like to see a group, though. There's not a whole lot of info from users on the web, at least none I have found. Most of the info comes from challenges, and there are a couple tutorials that always end up being the same ones.
I find Promarkers to be just as good as Copics, in some ways better, just not as many colors. I'd like folks to be aware that they can get great coloring for less cost. They both have their pros and cons.
If we do a challenge, I think we would have to give something away. I'm open to suggestions.
Just a little FYI. I found a new set of alcohol markers from American Crafts called Chromatix. They are only $3.99 each and I like them. They come in sets of 3 different shades of one color. I got a blue set, a red set, a marine blue set, a brown set and a skin tone set. I like them. They seem to work just as well as my Spectrum Noir sets and the three lonely Copics that I have. I have been doing some research online about the Promarkers and they seems pretty good too. Also, ShinHan Art has alcohol markers too.
I would love to join a promarker group. I am always amazed at the shading but get in a muddle when it comes to finding colours that go together.
I would love to know how to get started with Promarkers. For example, if I could only afford 30 markers, what colors would I purchase? Two in a color range? Three? Mostly pastels and medium colors?
The following is a list of my always-have-on-hand Promarkers. I keep them in a bundle and pull them out first, and add other colors to complete the project.
satin, blush, soft peach, coral
baby pink, sunkissed pink, dusty rose
tan, caramel, tawny owl, cinnamon, chestnut, henna
ice greys and/or cool greys
ruby, berry red, crimson,burgundy
2-3 mid blues. 2-3 mid greens, 2-3 mid yellows, 2-3 mid oranges
2-3 mid purples
I hope this helps you.
