  • ah pink!
  • the color of cotton candy, bubblegum, and Wednesdays
  • today I'm gonna
  • be taking every pink art supply that I own and I'm going to be making some art with it!
  • let's see what happens!
  • as always the first thing I do is swatch
  • out all the art supplies, not only can you discover which ones have strangely
  • exploded (talking to you Ohuhu)
  • but you can also find out the exact colors and tones of
  • each marker instead of just relying on the cap or the barrel color
  • I have all of my art supplies on the left and as I use the art supplies I'm going to take
  • them from the left side and move them over to the right side of the desk and
  • then I will know which ones I've used and which ones I haven't
  • but first I
  • need to decide what I want to draw so I've got my sketchbook and I'm just kind
  • of brainstorming and drawing the first couple things that come to my mind and
  • Mean Girls was for some reason on the top of my head, so I kept drawing like ....Mean.... Girls...?
  • [tongue click]
  • and I decided I didn't want to actually just draw fanart so I kind of took it as
  • inspiration to design a character and you can kind of see the thumbnail that I
  • created right there and now I'm going to take that teeny weeny little one and try
  • and translate it onto the larger piece of paper
  • starting with my pink Col-Erase Colored Pencil I'm going to start
  • sketching out the idea and laying it out on the page
  • this is a very crucial step
  • because if you mess up in your sketching stage you're not gonna have a whole lot
  • of luck further on down the road so whats most important to me here is making sure
  • that all of the elements fit on the page nothing's like too precariously close to
  • an edge of the paper and that it actually looks like she's taking a
  • selfie so the phone is lining up with her face which is lining up with the dog
  • behind her so they all could take a cute photo selfie!
  • once I'm pretty satisfied with the layout and I'm pretty sure I'mnot gonna have to erase large chunks of
  • the drawing I start going in and adding more details to like the hair and the
  • face and the outfit and I just keep doing that until I'm happy with it
  • this is definitely the art supply that I use for the longest amount of time because
  • it is just such an important part of creating an illustration and it's the
  • only pink art supply that I have that's erasable so it allows me to fix mistakes
  • when I make them so I try to take full advantage of that
  • the next art supply that I use is this Copic Sketch markers in the color R21
  • and i thought this was like the orangist of my pinks and i thought it
  • would look really really pretty as a hair color and now that i've done it i
  • know it does look really pretty as a hair color
  • imagine waking up every
  • morning and seeing that head of hair in the mirror, oo it would be magical!
  • next up I'm
  • using this Ohuhu Alcohol-Based Marker in the color '6' - this one is very very dark and
  • pigmented so I use the bullet nib and added like sort of details to the
  • drawing like her hair bow as well as her cellphone
  • I used the Copic Sketch
  • marker in the color RV13 to add some shading to the hair and really give
  • it depth so you could see what was in front and what was behind - I used another
  • Ohuhu art marker to add some details to the little doggies face and I also use
  • this to color in the girl's shoes I don't know what you call those.. like flats with
  • a like a tie -they kind of look like very simplified ballet shoes but you know no function just fashion
  • I decided to try and use the India ink as a line art so I
  • used my dip pen and started outlining the character- the face in particular and
  • I remembered that Copic markers don't really like India ink as much as I would
  • like them to so I was like I better hold that off until later so I'm going to be
  • using the India ink as like one of the last art supplies so that hopefully I
  • don't get any smudging
  • so then I took the Copic Sketch marker R0000
  • and I used this for the skin because at this point I hadn't really
  • decided if I wanted a light skin tone or a darker skin tone so I thought I'd
  • start light and then I can build up later if I so choose and I just used
  • this to color in all of the skin taking great care to avoid any of the India ink
  • especially around the face
  • next up I'm using this stained sharpie I decided I
  • really wanted this to be in the forefront of this illustration and one
  • of the main colors so I used to color in the top as well as her thigh socks I did
  • this mainly because I thought this color was the pinkiest
  • of my pink colors and some of them feel a little bit more purple so I thought if I use a
  • lot of this highlighter pink this hot pink color it'll help make the whole
  • illustration look pink overall which is in the end what I really really want
  • speaking of purpley Pink's this r83 is one of those
  • and I used this to color in her like shawl/jacket/cardigan... thing? I kind of
  • figured if I used this to surround that hot pink and her white skirt it would
  • make those sections look more vibrant because this is kind of like a dull
  • purple and overall I think it worked it took a few layers because I think this
  • markers drying a little bit but eventually I got a pretty even coat and
  • I used these two sharpies and I just use this to subtly outline the cardigan give
  • it a little bit more detail - these kind of blended into the cardigan color which
  • I liked but also had a bit more sharpness which I also really liked next
  • up I used this Ohuhu art marker in the color 28 and I use this to add blush to
  • her face it's a lot darker than the color I had used earlier and I feel like
  • it definitely brings some color to the face
  • then I'm going to be using these two
  • Windsor and Newton brush markers one is 'rose pink' and the other one is 'pink
  • pear' -l I use both of these markers to create flowers kind of a flower crown
  • around their faces like they're using a snapchat filter or something
  • I also gave the doggie one
  • then I use this really dark sharpie to add some depth and some
  • detail to the cardigan you can kind of see the difference that made it
  • doesn't all look super flat it's got more structure to it then I'm using this
  • Pilot Varsity pen (look it's got what looks like a dip pen on the end) itsn't that
  • cool? but I used this to define the flowers and the roses in the crowns and
  • as well as in the background there I feel like the two markers that I use
  • were more on the purpley side and this pen is definitely more pink and red so
  • by using this to outline those roses it definitely brings more pink into the illustration
  • I use this Koh-i-Noor dry marker thing and I actually use this
  • over top of the cardigan I thought this just made it a little bit more vibrant
  • but you know it's not overdoing it her top is still the most vibrant thing in
  • the area but this just like makes it more pink and a little less purple which
  • is something I was kind of fighting with in this drawing
  • I used this Ecoline brush to color in her purse I wanted to make sure this was darker
  • than everything else so it wasn't blending in with the other tones that I
  • had in that area there's a lot going on in that left side of the drawing so I
  • was hoping by using a really dark color would add more
  • contrast then I used this Staedtler triplus fineliner to add all the details to
  • the purse like the belt but then I used this Ohuhu acrylic paint marker which
  • is opaque and I painted over the purse because I decided I didn't want that to
  • be white anymore I thought pink would work better (after all we're drawing with
  • pink aren't we) and I really really like this like the contrast between this pink
  • and that Ecoline brush pen I think they just look really really nice
  • together and I took this dark sharpie and just outlined the purse anywhere
  • that I thought it needed a little bit more detail and then I took my pink
  • Posca pen and I tried to use this as sort of like seams to the purse but they
  • weren't all that different from the acrylic paint marker so they're not
  • super obvious
  • then I used this Jane Davenport paint over pen and I used this to add
  • like flowers to the background because originally my idea was to kind of add a
  • solid color to background with a paint
  • but
  • I don't know I started experimenting
  • with these flowers and it made me think of like one of my lunchboxes I had in
  • second grade they had all these flowers on it and it's just said: "girl power!"
  • (nostalgia I tell you [sniffs tear] makes us do silly things) this is using the core watercolor
  • I forgot to film the actual barrel but I'm using this to further my nostalgia
  • and draw varying sizes of flowers and using this water color to create subtle
  • flowers in the background that just kind of like fill up the space and add some
  • variety I used this pink Papermate highlighter
  • which I've had for so many years and I used this to add some more flowers to
  • the background these ones are a little bit more vibrancy pink color and I
  • definitely think it added something to the background - I used this Touch marker it's
  • a brush marker and I used this to actually add a little bit more depth and
  • tone to the entire character so I shaded like that entire left leg behind with
  • the cardigan and then as well as with her hair in her face a little bit and I
  • think this just made the character feel a little bit more 3-dimensional -- next up
  • I'm using this bic atlantis pen and I used this this is a bit of a
  • controversial decision but I used it to add like a little bit more doodle-i-ness
  • like it looks more like a doodle over the flowers kind of like the
  • color isn't fully staying within the lines kind of look I don't know
  • definitely not my normal style but I thought I'd experiment
  • next I'm using
  • these Americana acrylic paints - first I used the lighter tone one and I used
  • this to create a little bit more contrast with the cardigan with the
  • front section and the back section so I filled in all of the areas that are kind
  • of like closer to you if you were looking at her with this light pink
  • color and I also used it to add a little bit of shading to her white skirt
  • I feel like this makes her skirt look a little bit more shiny which I like
  • I took the darker acrylic paint and colored over that further shoe because
  • even though I had colored over that entire section with a marker it didn't
  • really add any darkness to that foot so I decided to just go in and do that with
  • the acrylic paint and I used this fine point sharpie and I it's very similar to
  • the color of the India ink that I'm going to be using to lineart everything
  • but there's some sections where I'm a little bit nervous to use like the dip
  • pen so I instead created the line art with this sharpie in those sections then
  • I took my last two sharpies, I have a fine point and a ultrafine point, is that
  • they're called? can't remember. but I use this to add some more flowers to the
  • background so I was able to create thin ones as well as thicker ones and I also
  • used it to kind of create a cartoony like shine coming off of a phone
  • eeah I know... interesting choice right?
  • and then it was time to go back in with the dip pen I was kind of excited about this so
  • basically I'm darkening up a lot of the lines and what's cool about a dip pen is
  • that you can get those like fine points but then you're also using in very
  • liquidy ink so if there's sections that you want to fill in a little bit larger
  • you kind of just go over it and it fills in and creates a nice even tone which I
  • love it's so much fun to experiment with so I did that over the entire character
  • creating a little bit of contrast between the lines and also just adding
  • some more depth where I thought it needed it -- I wanted to add a little bit
  • more oomph to the drawing so I used a white gel pen and kind of separated the
  • character from that cardigan that's blowing behind her I just wanted to
  • separate those pieces a little bit more and I think the white gel pen really
  • helps and then of course I also just added it to the eyes and you know where
  • you use a white gel pen
  • and then this is what it looked like I'm
  • really happy with this and looking at it... I like it but if you don't know me, I, for
  • some strange reason, maybe I've been cursed as a child, but whenever I finish
  • a drawing I think "ah I could make this better" (but in reality you know I can't)
  • mm-hmm I like reach the pinnacle of my abilities but I don't realize it
  • anyway
  • when I was first drawing this I thought I wanted to create a shape coming from
  • the phone kind of like it's the phone's field of view and I wanted that to be a
  • certain color behind like the character it's just you could tell and make it
  • obvious that they are taking a selfie (like that's not obvious already) so I used the
  • white acrylic paint and just filled in over the background cuz I thought it was
  • too busy you know ruin the drawing blah, blah, blah
  • it's fine
  • it's okay
  • i don't hate myself
  • [dramatic pause]
  • it's fine!
  • everything's fine
  • there's nothing wrong with it - it's [unintelligible]
  • let's just look back at the old one
  • Ah! why did I touch you?
  • anyway I want to
  • thank you guys all for watching I hope you enjoyed watching me use every single
  • pink art supply that I owned it's actually been a year since I did my
  • first one of these videos so I just want to thank you guys for just being so

  • them for yah! so thanks for watching them! anyway thank you guys for watching as
