I've been doing a lot of marker work as of late; attempting to expand my use of color and pushing what the marker can do. I'm in the midst of doing several commissions, and have been doing some marker studies to see what colors work best with each other. I did one a few days ago on Bienfang marker paper, and the paper transformed the ink into almost watercolor washes. More or less, it was terrible. I did this one on Copic marker pad, and man....what a difference!
Sometimes, the material DOES make a difference.
