Acrylic Spark by PinstripeChris Acrylic Spark by PinstripeChris
I made this little test piece today in between emails and coffee to try out a concept I had in mind. What it ended up being was a really mixed media piece that was just plain fun to do! Here we have what started out as a Sharpie piece, then added to with acrylic washes, opaques, and finally enamel. A little bit of airbrushing and localized 'fling' to finish it up. My basic idea was a spark plug with an acrylic fling style spark- then I decided to embellish a little :)

This is awesome, I love the blend of bold contrasting marker work with paint splatter.

Thanks! I got lucky with this one- sometimes on really experimental pieces they can become a little too abstract

I suppose a better question is which lines are you referring to?

Lmao all your lines XD. Your line work on all your stuff is so crisp and flat. It makes everything pop so well.

Well I'll admit, it does take some practice and markers/pens are about the least forgiving tool ever. But everything I do is freehand- I try to do every line in one shot (meaning they're completely continuous with NO seams)- I think this helps them look more natural without having varying line widths common with doing fine lines with multiple seams. Since this is a small piece I did all the Sharpie lines in Ultra Fine Sharpie (0.3mm) so there is even less room for error. I move really really fast when I do lines so they stay Fine and don't bleed- this also helps keep them as sharp as possible. A steady hand is also a big help :)

It's hard to beat practice! This is something I do everyday and have done on really really large scales so practice is something I'm constantly doing. Someones asked me to make a tutorial on drawing lines with markers but I'm not sure that it'd be all that clear what I'm doing thats different then anyone else
