Manga is the Japanese word for drawn comics. In Europe, manga refers to Japanese-style drawings. Manga figures often have big eyes, small noses and mouths, and unusual hair colours. ProMarkers, which are alcohol-based, or Koi pens, which are water-based, are ideal for colouring manga drawings. Alcohol-based pens require a special pad, known as a marker pad, which keeps the ink from spreading out or seeping through the paper. For water-based pens, simply use ordinary white drawing paper.
You can use ProMarkers for many things, not just for drawing. Why not decorate a pair of cool fabric shoes? Simply colour, let dry, and you're done. No fixing required!
You don't have to be a professional to create artworks, simple fields of colour are just as artistic! Take care to only make soft lines with the pencil when sketching your squares, then they won't be as visible afterwards. The Promarker pens are available in a wide range of colours and have two tips - a broad one for colouring in and a fine-tipped one for details. Here we went a bundle on different shades of blue. The same marker produces various shades depending on how many layers you apply; the more layers, the deeper the colour. You can also apply a dark marker shade on top of a lighter one to produce even more shades. Using the Promarker Blender you can also mix and brighten other shades before they have dried. Play around and create your own combinations.
