Hey Tombow friends, this is Jennie! Today, I’m going to give you a few tips on comic drawing. This week, the Tombow Design Team was challenged to share a project with our favorite fandom. I have way too many but I decided to share an X-Men inspired drawing. I made this one with the Tombow ABT PRO Alcohol-Based Markers. In the past, I shared another X-Men character using the Tombow Irojiten Colored Pencils.
- Tombow ABT PRO Alcohol Based Markers
- Tombow 8900 Drawing Pencils
- Tombow MONO Drawing Pens
- Tombow MONO Dust Catch Eraser and the Tombow MONO Zero Eraser
Sometimes drawing the light spots helps you remember where to leave space when you color.
I have a post where I explained how to color hair. This one is a bit different because Storm’s hair is white. I used the Tombow ABT PRO Alcohol-Based Markers Gray Palette to color only the shadows in the hair. I colored the lines with PN75. Then, I used the lightest color going with the direction of the hair. I added only a little bit of the darker gray and then went over it again with the lightest.
Frame the face with shadows. Add shadows around the eyes and below the cheekbones. Like with hair, you will need at least three colors. I used PN25 on the eyes to add a slight shadow. Usually I add lots of color in the iris but I wanted to keep her eyes really light. For extra details, I used the fine tip of the Tombow TwinTone Markers. Avoid coloring some of the light spots.
When you are done coloring, use a Tombow MONO Drawing Pen to add details in some areas.
I hope you enjoyed this project! Take care!
