Basic Architecture Rendering using Markers by Arch Ian Jay Bantilan

Markers are a very useful tool in rendering. There are many a trick to mastering the marker and it requires constant practice. You must also understand that markers are not like Coloring Books.

Prismacolor Marker Tip

Prismacolor Marker Tip

Mark ‘yer Qualities.

Markers are colored pens with tips made of porous material like felt. Most markers today are alcohol based and hence have a cap to prevent rapid evaporation of your prescious ink.

The proffessional markers have 2 tips – the thin point side (1) and the wide wedge (2). Some will have a nib similar to fountain pens (3).

Markers can have the tendency to leak everywhere if not controlled right. You must develop the skill to control how the ink flows to your paper by applying different pressure and varying the angle of touching the paper. Like any other medium, markers lend a different feel to colours and pictures in general. I personally think that markers can be the easiest to control amongst traditional liquid colouring techniques.

Select your Paper.
Different qualities of Markers will have different marks on paper. Different papers can also enhance or destroy your render. It is best to try your marker on paper before you do an all-out rendering marathon. It’s easier to work on a paper that gives you a hand.
