Okay, so people on DA and gaia have been asking me to make a tutorial about marker wash, so I did. :)

The files are too large to upload here, so they're on DA. :)

I'd unzip it, but I use somethign other than winzip, and it won't let me use that to unzip it.

If I were technical I'd totally help you out. :(

hmmm. I wonder if there's another way to put my files up.

What kinds of files are they?

Nice tutorial :)

To be honest, I've never really tried colouring non-digital before, but i think i'll try and give this a go :D

Also you could use photobucket or image shack to host the jpg files and just link people to them... or just in the description mention that you need winrar to unzip the file, if that's what people are having trouble with.

I forgot to ask one question, you mention your 10 sheets of watercolour paper is pretty cheap, but what kind of wieght is it?

I mean is it heavy enough paper to not really need stretching before use or do you always need to stretch it all?

I've never used any water/ink based colour techniques before so i'm pretty new to this stuff :)

They are .RAR files. I thought I had winrar, but it says no :P.
Edit: Mine was too old, lolz.

So, excuse this really retarded question, but where do you buy water pens? I live in NY and I've never seen anything like them :P.
