Cool Dude

Passion for Promarkers Challenge Week 99 theme: ‘for a teenager’. This DL sized card is my original design. The black base of the skateboard is wet’n’dry very fine sandpaper adhered to the card with Glossy Accents (a glue stick just didn’t do the job). The wheels and graffiti were drawn freehand, coloured with ProMarkers and given white highlights with white gel pen. The wheels are mounted on foam pads for a bit of depth.

Pens used:
Blues: Artic Blue/Sky Blue/Cobalt Blue
Greys: Ice Grey 1-5/Black
Wheels: Mustard/Tan

Sketched using Noodler’s Ink (‘Bulletproof’ black) in Lamy Safari pen.

White gel pen: Mitsubishi Signo broad (UM-153)

Here’s the outline for the wheels and graffiti for those that would like it – click on the image below to show full size, and then right click on it to save it or copy image. You’ll probably need to resize it to fit to your card.

  3. Just seen this post and love what you’ve done, i thought at first it was a “real” skate board, would love the download to be available as I have 5 nephews and this would be handy if i’d be able to use it.
