Chris sir -

I'm very intrigued and if I may ask; what would I expect to pay if I were to commission you for a sketch cover of just one character?

copic markers seem to be most popular what advantage does prisma have?

Well they're both art markers, so as long as you know what you're doing, then you should be good. I haven't used copics enough to say advantages for sure, but I do enjoy prisma's range of color saturation.

Outstanding Chris. Thank you for doing, and showing these.

I'm curios - did you find the markers a bit tough to control on that paper stock, compared to the god paper you traditionally work on?
Reply
:iconchristopherstevens:
ChristopherStevens Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2013
Thanks. The stock on these is not easy for what I do. Especially the stock on the covers wi the logos printed on them. The blank covers (like the Thor here) handle markers very well though. I think collectors prefer the logos, but as an artist, I don't think I'd agree to do more of these in the future unless it was on the blanks.

bpisek Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2013
You're welcome.
Yes, it's too bad they don't upgrade the covers to be more suited for artists. :)

Great work. :)

ChristopherStevens Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2013
There's a good paper stock for markers, but they don't have the logos printed on them and they can't be CGC graded. I guess that's less appealing to collectors, but I'll still insist on using them in the future.
Reply
:iconbpisek:
bpisek Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2013
I didn't know CGC wouldn't grade those. I thought if you laid cash in front of those people they would do anything.

When collectors ( art collectors that is ) know a better paper stock will give them a superior
piece of artwork, I would hope to see blank covers moving that way. Companies like
Dynamite, however, want bigger profit margins, and only see short term, and not the
potential for bigger profit margins through larger quantities sold.

Thanks. For sure. It's impossible for me to do my normal work on these, but if you work at it long enough, the markers....sort of do what you ask. Sort of.
