What kind of Alcohol Marker art do you want to produce?

I LOVE alcohol markers because they are so versatile! From beginner to professional alcohol ink markers are the perfect tool to make your art pop. They are super easy to use and if you get a good set, you can easily blend and layer colours to get the look you want with none of that streakiness that you get from normal felt tip pens.

Here’s a quick list of ideas for ways you can use alcohol markers:

  • Illustrations
  • Product design
  • Fashion design
  • Anime
  • Colouring books
  • Backgrounds
  • Stamping
  • Card making
  • Calligraphy
  • and more…

You will notice that a lot of the artists below are using Copic markers, but don’t let that put you off if you don’t have any (they’re notoriously expensive). There are other much cheaper, but still high-quality alcohol marker alternatives out there. We even make our own alcohol markers that you can buy right now on Amazon – Fearless Art Alcohol Markers. ⬇️
