No models to draw?? Use YouTube!!

YouTube - drawing youtube



"I stumbled upon this video on YouTube. The creator, a young Brazilian named Marcos, draws other people who appear on YouTube or send him online videos. His drawing style is interesting and it certainly gives me ideas of how to work on my portrait drawing when it's far too freezing to draw strangers in the street. "

THEME SATURDAY: DRAWING TOOLS - DREWSCAPE


What i use for drawing:
1. Calligraphy pen (thick & thin nib). Very useful for adding characeter to lines for visuals + storyboards.
2. Arabic calligraphy pen (slanted nib). Also good for visuals.
3. Liquid paper. For adding highlights and covering mistakes for visuals.
4. Hero model 86 bent nip fountain pen. Very smooth. (The ink that comes with this pen is good. Very black. Chairman recommended. Hail chairman!)
5. Zig Clean color pens. Add water and it spreads very nicely. Shld try mixing with a couple colours. eg. red and black.
6. Pencil.
7. Japanese brush.
8. Intuos 2 wacom.
9. Good food.

mc-RAR!

THEME SATURDAY: DRAWING TOOLS - zeropointfive


(Most) Everything I need, I can find in a 0.5 mechanical with 2B lead

- you want sharp, break the lead tip
- you want dark, "colour" hard
- you want soft, "colour" hard on spare paper till tip becomes blunt, then use
- you want interesting, try it with your other hand :p

And a handy mechanical eraser to hide evidence that you're not as ingenius as people think you are.

Cheat: Keep a tissue paper nearby to rub still life drawings so they look softer and not like they were done with a mechanical pencil.

F. Lyra Pencil 8B

from your loved ones with this line.
"why did you forget my bdae?"
-becos i love you.
"why did you buy me tt ugly action figure as a gift?"
-becos i love you.
"why did you eat my cat?"
-becos i love you....r cat.

hmmm an early valentine's gift to everyone!
inspired by mitsuru adachi of "touch"
something diffn as my subject matter usually's
about warriors soldiers and samurais...
time to go to the sensitive side!

warrior in the rain.



a repaint of my first post on blogger.
this was the first sketch i've done
