+$"In my work as a professional illustrator and story board artist, I am always in need of good tools, " saysEilertJanßen+$, who started drawing in digital as an in-house illustrator for one of Germany's biggest ad-companies.
+$"From time to time I was in need of a good marker brush but I found none – so I decided to make them myself." He spent half a year working on perfecting his tools and has created a massive marker set for Photoshop, much of which he uses in his storyboard work.
+$"Creating brushes is fun. It is about getting the 'right' feeling, friction, texture," he comments, "It is quite time consuming to get the components working. For this marker set I scanned over 200 textures distilled about 700 seamless, slimmed them down to 160 and chose about 20 for my set!"
+$The Berlin-based illustrator says they are ideal for storyboards, quick sketches or to use them as drafting brushes for layouts.
+$"I personally like the watery/liquid markers (SCHNAPPS Section) and use them a lot to lay down the basic lighting of a scene. The complete set is quite flexible and can be used in many ways. It is really fun to combine the different abilities of the different markers."
