Variations on a theme in sepia, Op. 1 No. 2
Couple of weeks ago I talked about trying different kinds of paper
with my shiny brand new Copic Sketch markers.
The contenders for this part of the experiment are two types from the Deleter line of manga papers
. I love Deleter paper for its smooth surface that lends itself well to pencils and inks. I wanted to see how well it would work with Copics.
First sketch is done on the Deleter comic book premium paper
, plain, 110kg. (≈75lb) The second is on Deleter comic manuscript
"memory" paper, 135kg. Right away it was clear to me that these papers are not conducive to blending. Maybe just barely. The first layer comes out super streaked. I was able to build up some smooth tones in subsequent layers of the same
color, but mixing the colors just did not work out well.
So there ya go, cozins. I have issues with trusting labels, but in case of paper they are very accurate.
I still love Deleter paper for use with inks, but for Copics, I'll look elsewhere!
