How you can shade four cartoons in 7 minutes

I always enjoy Mark Anderson’s videos. This one is how he does shading with Prismacolor cool grey markers. Check out his blog too for a few more interesting tidbits on the paper he uses and the size that he draws (spoiler!: small).

  1. I love Mark’s cartoons. What he says about Photoshop is my hangup as well. Organic, quick drawing like this tends to produce lose stuff that I like and if I’m doing something digitally I can get hung up on minute details forever.

    But both methods produce stuff I like, it’s just that the styles can be really different depending on what equipment I’m using.

    (Note to self: A clamped iPhone can produce a decent video of me drawing.)
