I had inked out a few succulent designs and tested some of the marker colors in my Traveler’s Notebook before starting the actual project in my other notebook. Two goals: First off, to do more ink drawings without outlining in pencil first; Second, the color the background without it being super streaky (compare to the rooster picture posted a while back). The yellow marker unfortunately started to run out of steam on the second half of the spread. I should have given it a break between pages to “recharge.”

It doesn’t seem to matter how thick the paper is, alcohol based markers bleed through absolutely everything I guess (Leuchtturm = 180gsm). Tools used: Pens and markers.
