Use a graphite pencil to quickly sketch your subject.
Trace over it with the black, fine point marker. Let dry for a few minutes and then erase the pencil lines.
Add colour to the drawing with the alcohol-based markers, starting with the lightest shades.
Keep adding marker layers, gradually incorporating increasingly darker colours.
Step 5: Add shadows with the black pencil.
Step 6: Use the white Posca marker to add highlights and brighten your illustration.
