Another traditional drawing experiment for a change (this time beautiful nothern lights / aurora borealis). At first I wanted to paint this reference with oil paint, but then I decided to try it with my mixed media technique (maker + colored pencil). I wanted to practice green effect likes this anyway. ;)
It could be a bit smoother, but I didn't want to invest more time in this drawing and the paper was probably a bit too grainy as well (+ my scanner always makes everything even more grainier :grump:)...

Thank you very much! :) I wish I could see northern lights myself. That must be a very beautiful sight! In northern Germany we see them once in 10 years (but not that strong/beautiful) and I always miss them. Sweating a little...

I used white paper. So I've made everything so dark with the markers. For example the sky: black, different gray tones, green & purple markers + colored pencils (there are always at least 1-2 layers of colored pencil on the "marker base layer") + white gel pen and white paint for the stars (see also description for the tools).

I understand, you did a really good job, it's not so easy create such a dark picture on a white paper. I think that markers were a great choice because it wouldn't look so good done only with colored penicls :)

Really beautiful!  :heart:

It is really amazing what you are able to do with colour pencils.

Do you use the Copic markers to blend the colours, fill the little "white gaps" and produce a smoother image?

Quelchii Featured By Owner May 13, 2016  Professional Traditional Artist
Thank you! :)

Yes, that's one of the reasons why I use Copics for the base layer. It also saves a lot of time, because then I don't need to add so many layers of colour pencil.
