i am a student and hobby artist. My prefered style is a mixture of manga and something I´d call my own touch. Focus lies often on a human person and a more or less simplistic background.
All artworks are done with some kind of traditional media, usually markers, coloured pencils and watercolours.

One question I am asked quite often: How do I colour?
Well, I usually use coloured pencils as base colours for artworks and add darker areas with markers. The more different coloured pencils, the more vivid is the base and it is easier for later. Alternatively I just do a thicker layer of one colour.
Next step is to take a marker (I have Faber Castell, but they blur the ink) and put it on the area you want to colour in this tone. Now, before it dries, you can blur the edges with the base-coloured pencil, so the edges become smooth. You can repeat this procedure with as many colours as the paper can endure ^^
