  • You hungry for a little ๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ต?
  • *rattle*
  • Well, you're in luck because I've got ๐“๐“ป๐“ฝ ๐“ข๐“ท๐“ช๐“ฌ๐“ด๐“ผ box here!
  • Let's open her up, see what's inside, and draw something with the contents. ๐Ÿง
  • Ooh, that sounded clever, didn't it.
  • โ™ช music โ™ช
  • Oh wow, there's something big in here!
  • Oh my gosh. Is there one of those in here? I just broke that one.
  • There is a thin piece of what feels like toned paper--card... stock?
  • *filupluplupluple*
  • *gasp* Oสœ แดส ษขแดsสœ ษชแด›'s แด€ สŸษชแด›แด›สŸแด‡ ส™แด€ส™สสสส!
  • The absolute teeny tiniest kneaded eraser I've ever seen in my life; I thought it was a candy.
  • *plastic noises*
  • So cute!
  • We have the art snacks sticker with little hearts on it this month.
  • I believe this is the February box. So maybe that's Valentine's themed.
  • Here's the menu with the list of supplies. Oh, and the candy! Got some smarties.
  • *Rattle*
  • *rip*
  • ๐Ÿ˜ฉ
  • eeeeeeeแต‰แต‰แต‰แตƒแตƒแตƒแตƒแตƒสฐสฐสฐสฐสฐสฐสฐสฐสฐ
  • *deflates like a balloon in despair*
  • Shrivels up.
  • Hahaha
  • I think these are pastels.
  • *Eeyeh*
  • I like the color scheme - rich oranges, five soft pastel half sticks.
  • They're using a famous artist name
  • maybe that means they're good?
  • And look at that: The pen I broke from the last ScrawlrBox. This is identical.
  • I wasn't a huge fan of it, if you remember, because it wasn't super opaque, but maybe it'll work better with these art supplies?
  • We'll find out. Also in the Box is this mechanical pencil with...
  • "๐™๐™‰๐˜ฝ๐™๐™€๐˜ผ๐™†๐˜ผ๐˜ฝ๐™‡๐™€ ๐™‡๐™€๐˜ผ๐˜ฟ"
  • *sษดแด€แด˜*
  • [It] comes with some refills.
  • I love mechanical pencils because you don't have to sharpen it,
  • and every time I use a sharpener I swear it just--the lead gets stuck on the end of it.
  • And then when you tried to sharpen some more it's still in there, and you get it out and then you sharpen the pencil again
  • and the same thing happens, and it's just a continuous cycle.
  • This is cute. I like the little container.
  • That's probably really lame of me, but that's just what it is.
  • We have our extra lead--should I see if they're ๐˜ฝ๐™๐™€๐˜ผ๐™†๐˜ผ๐˜ฝ๐™‡๐™€??
  • Haha [if I] just snap them all in half. Let's see if it's breakable.
  • Ope, I broke it, It's gone.
  • แดธแถฆแต‰หข
  • ๐™‡๐™„๐™€๐™Ž!!
  • All right, so these are the art supplies in the February... Art Snacks box.
  • I'm excited.
  • As แด‡xแด„ษชแด›แด‡แด… แด€s I แด„แด€ษด ส™แด‡ า“แดส€ แด˜แด€sแด›แด‡สŸs.
  • What I need to do first is swatch out these art supplies...
  • so we can get a feel for how the art supplies work.
  • Aww, there in a little foam thing.
  • They each have a little pocket for their little bodies.
  • Okay, not too messy yet...
  • *๐™Ž๐™ƒ๐™๐™‰*
  • I'm not entirely sure how you're supposed to go about using these.
  • I might look up a little bit of a tutorial here before we get too deep into the art.
  • That way I don't make a fool of myself.
  • So those are the five colors.
  • I'm about to blow the dust away and make a mess, ready?
  • *inhales deeply*
  • *fwoooo*
  • Was that as satisfying as I thought it would be?
  • Alright, let's see if the Pitt Artists pen works on top of these pastels.
  • You have to be very light with the pen. If you're too heavy-handed you just push the pastels.
  • Ooh, I like this. I could use this for a while, hah.
  • That's about how where I would have it if I was using it. So let's push rea--*๐™Ž๐™‰๐˜ผ๐™‹*
  • Where did it even go? Hah.
  • Why would you put that so big on your packaging if it's that easy to disprove?
  • Jokes aside, though I really do like using this,I like the width of the lead, and I like the way it holds in my hand.
  • I can't complain--other than it said it was ๐™๐™‰๐˜ฝ๐™๐™€๐˜ผ๐™†๐˜ผ๐˜ฝ๐™‡๐™€.
  • This color scheme is just screaming for like a nice turquoise or cyan to like...
  • complement it.
  • I don't really have that option, do I?
  • What I need to do here is just play around with them and get a feel for the art supply...
  • because there's only one art supply on this planet that I'm just not fond of and that is crayons and uh...
  • soft pastels are kind of just you know fancy crayons in my opinion.
  • Well, that just gets everywhere. Doesn't it?
  • Interesting...
  • I'm having a hard time blending it; my finger's too fat.
  • *snap*
  • Oh, chu, I just broke it on accident.
  • ๐™‡๐™„๐™€๐™Ž
  • Now, since now since they provided this piece of toned paper...
  • to try the pastels on, I thought it would be cool to draw on this piece of cardboard.
  • I'm just in a recycling mood, you know?
  • These colors make me think of fall and pumpkin patches,
  • but we've long since passed that time of the year.
  • How well do these erase? I didn't test that.
  • Oh wow, yeah, not bad. I kinda just want to try and do like a face portrait,
  • but with these colors, I don't know how well that'll work,
  • but I think it would be fun and that's what I want to do, hah.
  • I don't know why scissors just keep getting involved with my art projects.
  • Alright, let's try and draw a person. I think I'll use a reference so that it maybe turns out good.
  • I will have the reference linked in the description once I find one here. Ooh, I think this could be fun.
  • Let me try this out. All right, so we're using a reference, I like to just have it off to the side
  • so I'm not like staring at it trying to copy it,
  • but using it more as like a helpful guide when I'm having trouble like when I'm like,
  • "Oh, what does the space between the nose and the eye look like," sort of thing,
  • and I use it for like laying out the character-
  • -draw...
  • really basic shapes, try and figure out where everything is laid out on the reference's face.
  • And then like try and figure out what makes that reference look like that person and not maybe look like yourself.
  • But if you're using yourself as a reference, that doesn't really work, hah,
  • I'm adding a little bit of shading and tone with the pencil
  • just so I have an idea when it comes to adding the pastels kind of like guidelines. Oh, it has an eraser!
  • ๐˜ด๐˜ฆ๐˜ค๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ต
  • Now what I want is the hair to take up the entire rest of the space.
  • That's the goal. I think that would look really really cool.
  • There we go,
  • I didn't put a whole lot of detail in to the hair because I kind of just want to play with that
  • and have it a big soft fluffy sort of look.
  • Alright, so with these pastels,
  • with my swatches, some are lighter than the paper and some are darker than the paper.
  • So this is a pretty good mid-tone-
  • -I guess it's cardboard actually--for this illustration to work on so we should probably try-
  • -I'll start with maybe the lightest and then work on wherever there's highlights like the tip of the nose.
  • แดธแถฆ'หก โฟแต’หขสธ
  • And apparently here,
  • according to my reference, and right above the eyebrow.
  • I wonder if you're supposed to blend these out with your hand or with something else.
  • And blend that out a bit.
  • Oh, we're gonna need a lot more layers. That's just fading into nothing, isn't it?
  • I got to be careful not to like smudge the graphite underneath too much either.
  • *drawing noises*
  • And then the neck,
  • collar bones and all that jazz.
  • Aw, that's looking kinda cool she looks kind of like golden and metallic.
  • Alright, we can go in maybe with the next lightest color and work on some of the other areas.
  • Blend that out a lot more.
  • All right, I'm having way more fun than I anticipated.
  • Remember when I was talking about how I just like putting down a color and then blending it out?
  • Oooh, I just enjoy that so much.
  • It's looking very...
  • orange like a certain political leader,
  • but I think once we start adding some more of the darker tones, that might change.
  • Let me go with the next darker here and--
  • *soothing drawing sounds*
  • Then it goes a little darker...
  • around the outside of the nose.
  • That helps the nose...
  • look like it's sticking out.
  • Oh my gosh, I think that's what's happening.
  • So the graphite is slippery and the pastels aren't gripping it,
  • so it's hard to leave any pigment behind.
  • I wonder if there's another way to do this.
  • Just lightly erase it...
  • ok, and we can also shade underneath the chi--aww shoot the graphite's--I gotta erase that graphite.
  • There we go. Naw, it's still--maybe it's just this piece?
  • It doesn't want to be helpful. I mean it could be because I'm using a piece--
  • *snap*
  • -Oh my gosh, what happened?
  • It just exploded! Well, I can use that pigment and blend it in here. Hahaaaa!
  • Let's continue around the mouth.
  • I'm actually noticing that that's very bright. It must stick out a little bit more on her profile.
  • An inverted mustache here.
  • I think that's how most people look actually. Once I realized that it was really helpful when shading faces.
  • This light color is the only one that seems to want to like actually mark the page.
  • Which is good because I'm using a lot of it, but some of them don't want to draw for me.
  • Blend that out...
  • Actually darken up underneath the eyes...
  • and blend that out.
  • It's actually looking kind of cool. This color is working
  • so I'm probably gonna end up using a lot of it
  • If anyone can explain to me why some of the colors don't want to draw.,
  • that be very helpful.
  • Let's start-
  • -It's gonna take a while-
  • -Let's start just adding in this dark brown.
  • *Scratching cardboard sound*
  • Hmmm, not loving the idea anymore.
  • I wonder what would happen if I added water to this?
  • Mmm, not a whole lot, haha.
  • [Let's] try and erase some of this,
  • see what results we get with that.
  • Well, that's what happens when you use a new art supply. I've never actually used pastels...
  • in any capacity larger than swatch, "Eww, I don't like that." *nose laugh*
  • This is my first attempt at like trying to actually make something with it-
  • *Gasp* -I've got cheeto disease.
  • *Screeches like a broken animatronic*
  • Some of these just don't work, it's really driving me nuts.
  • *vague frustration sounds*
  • *bonk*
  • *bonk* *bonk*
  • Okay, it's been a couple hours, I took a break I was getting ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ญ๐˜ญ๐˜บ frustrated
  • with this, this is not my favorite art supply.
  • It could probably be considered my
  • ๐™ก๐™š๐™–๐™จ๐™ฉ
  • ๐™›๐™–๐™ซ๐™ค๐™ง๐™ž๐™ฉ๐™š
  • ๐™–๐™ง๐™ฉ ๐™จ๐™ช๐™ฅ๐™ฅ๐™ก๐™ฎ!
  • But that's okay!
  • I'm gonna give it another go.
  • I've got an actual piece of toned paper here.
  • I'm gonna try avoiding using the mechanical pencil and we'll see if that solves some of my problems.
  • I'm gonna just start drawing directly with one of the pastels,
  • and I'm also going to try and stylize it a little bit more because I think that'd be fun,
  • so that I'm not drawing the exact same thing.
  • I'm gonna try to be real light and I gonna try and uh...
  • cartoonify the face a bit more.
  • Maybe not that big.
  • *drawing sounds*
  • But I'm gonna try and take what I learned from shading this face
  • and apply to this and see how well I can translate that.
  • *bonk* So far so good, haha.
  • Try and keep it simple because it's kind of difficult to erase this stuff, you know?
  • Alright, it's a little lopsided,
  • see what I can do about that.
  • *calming scraping noises*
  • Alright,
  • that's the sketch down.
  • Now, I want to go in with the lightest color and kind of just do the exact same thing we did with
  • that guy...
  • lady...
  • person...
  • I'unno.
  • *Even more soothing scraping sounds*
  • Just sort of follow the example I made with the more realistic... portrait.
  • I don't have the reference out anymore because I'm charging my phone, heheh.
  • So the only reference I have is what I've already made and what I remember.
  • This is kind of gonna be an interesting way to see what I took in from the reference now that I don't have it.
  • *wishoshwishwosh*
  • I think I'll use this to color in the eye this time.
  • Next color in โ™ช line. โ™ช
  • I also should try to use the toned paper
  • a bit more, last time I kind of tried to cover over the whole thing.
  • And this paper is lighter than the last one I used. So this second color actually isn't a light tone anymore.
  • It's darker than this, I would say, so I can actually use it for shading.
  • I'm gonna fill in this nose.
  • Oh, I forgot the body! Talk about a foundation mishap, am I right?
  • I feel like this paper's definitely grabbing the pigment a lot better than the cardboard I was using before did.
  • This is all still the beginning stages and I feel like that was going really well in the first couple stages too.
  • There we go.
  • I feel like this is going pretty well, need to blend out some of these and add some more shading under here.
  • I'm still having a little trouble with that one.
  • *Yet another set of art scraping sounds*
  • I feel like the colors look more vibrant on this one, too.
  • It's definitely kind of hurting my wrist to hold such a tiny little thing.
  • I don't know if there's some trick to that or just buy larger pastels, maybe.
  • I feel like they make a holder for it.
  • It's almost like the finger-painting.
  • สฐแต‰สฐ สฐแต‰สฐ
  • The nose is getting lost in there; I think I'm gonna have to...
  • darken that up a bit.
  • *"finger painting" noises*
  • I forgot the ears.
  • *snort*
  • Let's do those really quick here.
  • Ehh, we'll try to cover those up with hair.
  • *Tssshaha*
  • All right, now I want to move on to the โ™ช hair... โ™ช I think.
  • Let's try and not mess it up.
  • That's where I was the most self-conscious about how this turned out was the hair.
  • So I'm gonna try and be all extra careful.
  • I'll start a little bit lighter this time.
  • Fill in the darkest areas maybe, start there?
  • I'm gonna try to figure out these sections.
  • I feel like that's working,
  • but I should probably start on this side so that I don't put my hand throughout the face for too long.
  • Oh, and I can't forget the freckles either.
  • I may just do these eyes for a little bit here before I do this part because
  • obviously, it's going to be messy.
  • Ok, lookin' pretty good.
  • I wonder if I could dark up... just some sections... of the eyebrows.
  • Uh, that wasn't too bad.
  • Heeyy, I feel like that really added some tone and contrast to that. I'm really happy with that bit.
  • Okay, back to the hair.
  • [Do] the side of it and then blend that out.
  • That's where there'd be some dips in the light--try to darken in those areas. Then I can also add highlights.
  • Hair is still something I need to work on, but this is definitely an improvement from that.
  • [Let's] put some strands here and there like so.
  • [To] make a little more interesting.
  • Now move on to this side.
  • *Loud swooshy noises*
  • Darken everything up, add the next layers.
  • I'm not sure what to say about anything. So I'll just... try and enjoy the process I think
  • Then I can go in with the lighter one, add some highlights here and there.
  • I feel like an artist! look at me!
  • Hahah.
  • Now we just need to work on the freckles.
  • Freckles were really really difficult. So, let's see here, this edge is kind of pointy.
  • *bok bok bok*
  • *blowing*
  • How did that happen?
  • I'll just grab the darker...
  • pastel here and just add a little bit more contrast here and there.
  • Okay, I feel like I redeemed myself. Haha.
  • What do you think?
  • 1 and 2.
  • It's funny, these colors feel brighter.
  • I don't know if it's because of the paper or if it's the way that I used them.
  • I'm not privy to that information.
  • Haha.
  • But I like this one a lot better. I think not using the graphite really helped.
  • I didn't have problems with the pastels sticking but again, that could have been the cardboard, I'm not sure,
  • but this is something I'm much happier wit--ooh, that was weird.
  • That's a little... interesting.
  • Hehehe.
  • I do want to take some time to thank you for watching,
  • and I hope you enjoyed... my drawing process.
  • I really enjoyed trying and using one of my least favorite mediums. Maybe even the medium... I hate.
  • I don't know, hates a strong word!
  • I was feeling something very strong when I was working on this; hate may or may not have been that,
  • but I'm much happier with this result.
  • I will be passing these art supplies on to one of you,
  • so if you've never used pastels before or if you know how to use them and you'd like some more,
  • check the link in the description to the giveaway, see if it's still active.
  • Thanks for watching and thanks Art Snacks for sending me the box to try out and share with you.
  • Oh, wait I forgot to use an art supply--wai-wai-wai-wait. Mm mm mm, let me just add some highlights here.
  • Aw, it stopped working.
  • I got the pastel stuck on it again.
  • *Rapid cleaning scrapes*
  • It's really not doing a whole lot for me.
  • I have to like keep cleaning it off.
  • That's the best we're getting, I think.
  • It wants to draw my finger, but it does not want to draw on the pastels.
  • Well, for now I guess that's what it's like. So anyway, thank you guys for watching
  • I'll see you guys all next week, and I hope you have a delicious evening-
  • -Oh my gosh-
  • -full of waffles, byee!
  • Oof, time to clean up.
  • *Jazzy music*
  • *sustaining high note denoting the end of the track*
  • *cutlery noises*
