A dry marker often produces lines that aren’t desirable to look at, but Chun Fui Ng has managed to harness that faded ink look to produce fashion illustrations that are truly one of a kind. The Malaysian artist, who also works under the pseudonym Floyd Grey, uses various degrees of faint marker strokes to define value in his subjects and to produce patterns on their apparel. He couples that with a natural talent for using negative space to render images that are elegant and distinct to him and him alone. It should come as no surprise that Ng is a highly sought after artist by fashion houses everywhere.
Many will be surprised to learn Chun Fui Ng makes these illustrations entirely in Photoshop. To achieve the marker effect, he had to create his own custom brushes that taper off depending on his pen tablet’s pressure sensitivity.
