How do I paint my own style? To paint or draw my own style, I use either acrylic paints or markers. First I do a preliminary drawing with a pencil (B, B2, B3). In this one I paint the water and the sugar sauce first and then I paint different things in between. Be careful not to overcrowd it. Then I either paint it in with acrylic paints, or make the border with a black marker and then erase the pencil lines. Now I paint the picture with colored markers. Make sure that you alternate with the colors. I paint things first and then fill in the empty spaces.
