Some days I tell myself that I wanna take more character mascot jobs but other days I remember that multiple men tried to make passes at me while I was in a full Care Bear suit
Nothing makes the magic come alive more than grandpa lecherously making guesses at how ‘cute under there’ Share Bear is
My wife use to dress as the Easter bunny, but had women hitting on her thinking she was a dude in the costume.
One young miss seemed to assume I was a greasy loser under there, and felt the need to tease me.
Nozaki and Mikoshiba’s new OTP: Dating-sim protagonist x his nice-guy friend Tomoda
Girl’s Monthly Nozaki-kun has definitely brought me the most smiles this season. I love this show.
Marker demo sketch.
This initially started to demo Spectrum Noir markers… A marker that is rather affordable, and doesn’t have the strong smell like Copics. …until I remember that they will smudge waterproof ink. You can see a bit of the smudging in the pink hair, and mildly around the faces. The skin tones and pink hair were done in Spectrum Noir.
…then I decided to finish with Copic markers. Spectrum Noir are very nice because they are very affordable, and don’t smell. However, the ink dries faster than Prismacolor/Copics, and there isn’t a color name on the marker, just an alpha numeric code. (FS1, PP1, etc.). The actual color of the marker often varies wildly from the colored cap as well. It can smudge waterproof ink, but this may not be an issue for you if you put your lines on AFTER you color.
Copic markers are on the spendier side, but they are refillable. They’ve also stood up to age. My markers are about seven years old, and they haven’t dried up. Their ink takes a bit longer to dry, which is a massive boon for blending without using a colorless blender or alcohol.
I sometimes use Prismacolor Marker for small touches… but most of my markers are 7+ years old, and the Prismacolor haven’t stood the test of time. Most have dried out or prove to be very smudgy.
