Hello La-La Fans :)
It's Faye here today, and I thought I'd show you how I create the Splodgy Backgrounds I do sometimes. I'm using Graph'It Markers; you need a Marker with a harder nib to get this effect, Pros or Spectrum Noir, will give the same result. You can do this with Copic or Flex, it just gives more of a watercolour effect.
Let's start with your image, I'm using Lion Luka, I've grounded him and roughly added my first layer of colour. It doesn't matter that it's not blended:
Once your first layer is completely dry, it's all about dots. Add loads and loads of dots, you may think there is a woodpecker in the room with you, but you need to cover the first rough, base layer. You can keep adding dots until you get texture you are happy with. I went around the whole image three times, letting each layer of dots dry, before adding the next:
The last step uses a Blender Pen, you know, the Alcohol only one. You go over the entire background, adding dots of Blender, wherever you want until you are happy with the result:
