Coast Salish Totem Pole

This Totem Pole was sketched from a 1.5 inch photo I discovered in "Hand built Houses of the Pacific North West". I drew it in a moving vehicle crammed in the back piled high with camping gear.  It was drawn with Copic marker and colored with Prismacolor.  Note: Those two markers could work well together if the Prismacolor didn't cause the Copic marker to bleed and blur. My advice is to stick to one type of alcohol based marker at a time otherwise your line work will get wrecked.

I really like the tear tubes!
