{Adult Coloring} Johanna Basford: Lost ocean;Whale (Competition entry) Lyra aqua duo markers

Hi guys, So I also want to talk about these markers that I am using from lyra germany and these are the aqua brush duo and these ones have the duel tips with the fine tip and the brush tip So I am going to be testing these through my work today and I’ll give you my verdict at the end of the video Hi guys, so I said I would give you my verdict on these and my verdict is, its so so… You know like the markers are great as markers But I do wish the tip was finer I feel like it needs to finer like 0.3mm The brush tip is really nice, I can imagine using this for lettering which I have in the past They’re very sturdy pencils, I really like it I think they are nice It a nicely packaged pen It focuses on ..well the product is called aqua duo So it is a water soluble marker But using it in my work today I saw it just didn’t work The water soluble abilities don’t look that great As you will see in today’s work I wouldn’t use this for its water soluble abilities If I was to do watercolor, I would use watercolor pencils or paint But in terms of these markers I would not use these markers for its water soluble abilities That is my opinion, don’t take it to heart. That’s just my perspective on these markers They are great for markers But for now its ok…Don’t love it, Don’t hate it Yeh that’s my verdict Hi guys, Thanks for watching Please feel free to watch my videos above and thanks for watching and ill see you guys next time

    That's stunning!! Absolutely beautiful. Have the markers and the watercolour ruined the reverse side of the page? I'd love to see a breakdown of how to achieve background like that. I've also found that watercolour markers respond best to heavier duty watercolour paper instead of colouring books. I've got the Spectrum Noir brand and they really don't like colouring books at all.

    So beautiful! Are you sprinkling salt on the watercolors to get that effect? I seem to remember doing something like that in art class years ago. This is just amazing work! I'd love to watch you do a tutorial on the different techniques you've done here.

    Awesome job! How did the paper handle all that water?

    Hi! This is AMAZING! How are you not getting the paint on the whale itself? It looks like the paint is dancing around the whale.
