from an idea to a finished illustration
Hi. Guys, good, afternoon today's Thursday I realize, I haven't filmed, one. Single, thing for, this week's video and I'm getting really nervous because. I. Usually have kind, of like a bunch of stuff film. But. Not this time no. So. Yeah welcome my. Hair it's, looking. Color wise okay. But. It's so dull I haven't, done anything to it in, the past week. We. Can all understand, why it's been really crazy anyway. See, you tomorrow don't do anything crazy until, tomorrow I mean you're going to see this in a couple of seconds but. Yeah. See, you tomorrow guys. Hi. Guys oh my god this is yeah. That's just my it's it's ok hi guys welcome to in. My own focus ma'am. Okay. Hmm. Hi guys, today's. Fighting I. Hope. You didn't do anything crazy in between. Thursday and Friday anyway so, today I, decided, that I'm going, to draw something because, it's penalizes, last time we. Drew something together you and I mm-hmm. So I. Asked you guys on Instagram if you could give me any suggestions for things to draw today and a. Couple. Of you guys said like it will be great if you could draw something on New York today the thing is guys I don't know if you can see now you can't, today's, been raining like crazy there's, like a thunderstorm going on right now so. No. Landscapes, today. Mmmm. I can't. Go to a coffee shop. Can. You hear that I. Don't. Think I'll be able to go home today I mean I am overreacting obviously. I, just had lunch it. Looks gross but it was actually really nice and I. Needed some sweet tangerines, for my, immune system. So, yeah today today, today I'm. All by myself you, guys look, at this amazing. Let's, see if I can do this sketch today, hopefully. We can start painting the, situation, and, finish. The final sketch artist on Monday, so. Yeah. I'm going to read your comments now and. See. What, crazy, ideas, you escaping. So. I read, all of your comments guys, and. There. Are a bunch of them so thank you so much for taking the time and writing, down a few suggestions, for me there's. A bit of everything, there. Were ideas there. There, are amazing ideas, interesting, ideas so I, think I'm, going to pick one and. This. Is I have no idea how I'm going to draw it away guys it's very dark in here I mean you can't tell because I bumped. The light up, on. My camera. Can. You hear that anyway. Give. Me a couple, of minutes so I can work on this sketch and I. Will see you very. Soon. Okay. Nice let's. See if I can share what, I've done so far I have. Three ideas that I really like and. I. Think they're really interesting, first.
Of Them is this one which is a cat, a pirate, cat with. A, goldfish. In a. Bowl. Having. Adventures I. Change. The. Ball part only because it will be more interesting for the fish to be walking, as well and I, think this can be really interesting the second idea is a bear, a bunch, of bears in a band. Playing. And doing. Stuff like that. Playing. And doing stuff like that very nice one flat. God what is wrong with me anyway. All. Of them being in a band and of. Course the, name of the band is bear trap and. There. Are other, ideas that I think they're really interesting but the other one that I liked is this one is. What. Is the name got, sailor drinking tea and, I don't know why I thought this one. Could, be really interesting so I kept, these. Three, and I started doing more sketches, for those ideas so these. Are very quick quick, sketches guys but this is the bear band. These. Are some sketches, for the goldfish. Should. I be enjoying this challenge. Hey. Anyway. I thought, this could be really interesting and, I, don't know why I think they. Could, be like a very good. Adventure. Couple like. Partners and. Yeah. Anyway. And. This, one I don't know why I thought, it could be such, a nice. This. Could be a really nice juxtaposition. It's. Not even a word in English I know it is in Spanish but like. A nice contrast, between a, monster. About killing, all human, beings and. Being. Like such a quiet morning before work I thought, it, could be nice, and, I, thought to, put like, a very Scandinavian. Kitchen, on the background I also, like, to put this detail, and okay guys know it is but, a bunch of humans. As. Next. Anyway. I, honestly. Can decide between, these, three ideas because I think they're really cool. Kudos. To everybody who. Gave. Me suggestions specially. These three people I have. An idea which one to do guys because, I feel. Very. Attracted. To all, of this so. Let's. Let's, ask add what, he thinks. She. Gave. Me nothing look. Like. In the recent old buddy, hideous. And. Traces, esta. Yeah. Indo circa a it was a lot ridicule moved on Godzilla also, il, Matto ya. Que empezar mahkumaat. But, the western side Kruger, Leonard here is the histo, como my, classical, el. Esta. Muy classically. The. Music Oh. Gracias. Alright, guys. That. Was weird anyway. I. Am. At the office right now and I just, finally. Finish filming, patron. Q&A which is about an hour long and, now, it's. Almost, twelve, o'clock, I think. Before. Lunching. Before. Leaving lunch I'm, going to work on the sketch for. Today's. Illustration, while, the video is exporting, and everything I have. No idea how long is that going, to take and, I'm really bad at sketching, while, filming, because, I get too soft conscious about it so, please, allow. Myself give. Me a couple of hours so I can work on the sketch and later. On we're, going we are going to bring together. Ok, guys I'm making, some progress the. Page as you can see is still blank. But. This. Is what I came. Up with I, am. Very bad at drawing. From. Memory guys, I don't, know if we can show you this but, on the. Way to the studio on the subway, I made. A sketch, let me see if I can find it so I don't know if you can see you. Probably can't see but, this, was my initial. Sketch, for this thing for. Demonstration, and I, don't know if you can see but the. The. Perspective, is as boring as hell because, guess. What I've never had a band before and, I have no idea why, how. Rehearsal. Studios, look like and band. Practices, look like so. This, is the moment when, you as an illustrator, have to, get. In touch with your witnesses, thinks, that there's. No way I can, draw. That what I did was, I looked for, pictures, of how. Band. Practices, looked like and they realized that it will be way, more interesting. To. Base, the illustration, on our already existing picture, than. Recreating. Every, saying from scratch on my mind because that would walk so, what I did is I based the studies I did last. Week on the, Bears, and. This is what I came up with so. This is basically the, illustration, I don't know if you can see but the. The. Base is somehow. Similar but. I love that in, this case you can see the, drums and the, whole drumming, section. Here. As a first. Layer. And then you can see all the. Ingredients. All. The band members display. There I changed, this, person. Here because I want her to, be a, keyboard. Musician. To say keyboard, a keyboard. Person, anyway and, but I remained. I changed, slightly, where. The drummer is but. I kept, the, details of the rehearsal, studio because, I love how these details, look like on the ceiling and I think it gives more, realism. Reality. We all effect to, this illustration, and it actually, looks like a band like. A rehearsal studio, I, am. Very happy that I did this guys because. It's. Very hard to. Admit. That. You have no idea how to draw a space, but.
It's Actually, the best thing you can do from the get-go because then you can look. For. References. And, inspiration. On google, or on real art pictures and I feel that gives. Your illustration, like a new, whole different, level because you're basing everything on a very. Interesting perspective, that, I honestly. Wouldn't, possibly. Like. There's no way I would have drawn, that from scratch so, there's, nothing wrong with asking. For, help and looking. For references on Google because it. Will help your illustration, so, now basically, what, I need to do is transfer, this illustration, onto. That paper I am going to use my. Trusty Goodall, prismacolor, colors. And. Once that transfer, is done I will start painting but. Before that I'm going to have lunch because I'm being hungry so I see, you after lunch and once I'm done with the skits so wait, a, second. Hi. Guys oh my, god okay. So, I. Am. At the state in which I have no idea if what I'm doing it's. Good or not I did. Have fun though although. Filming. And, painting, at the same time is always very tricky so tomorrow. I'm going to keep painting this, illustration, I think tomorrow I'm going to do all the outline and then, finally, I'm going to finish this faster because it's taking, way too long and also. Tomorrow I need to edit this video so hopefully I can finish everything tomorrow. Am i aiming too high, I. Don't. Know if this happens to everybody but I just, use my drinking. Water as my, brush. Water so, very. Good friend, anyway. Wish me luck on my Japanese class and. See. You tomorrow guys have a good night, hi. Guys good morning god, I'm, so sleepy. I am, very sleepy today am. Ia little focus I, don't. Know. Let's. Do this guy's today we need to finish this illustration, and I need to edit this video so. Let's. Freakin. Do this, right. Now. There. You go how, are you my love's I think, I'm officially done with the illustration, I mean I could keep. Tweaking, that. Bastard, forever this was, super. Fun you guys of course the, pressure of impressing, you is still there and I. Honestly, did, my best but. It. Was really fun to share all the process because I think it's so important, to if. It, if, this experiment, was successful, in one, way it, was to prove that is super, useful to have references. From pictures, from real life and. I. I. Hope I show, you some, of the process, this. Illustration, would have been super, different if I would have done everything. By. Memory, yeah, please never feel embarrassed, to use pictures as a reference, because. Illustrators. We don't do everything from. Memory that will be horrible and that's. Why even Disney. Studios, they use models, to recreate, all the movements, and they. Do study. Sketches, and they go to fields, to understand, how nature works and stuff like that so. Yeah my love's I hope you, had fun in, this video thanks so much for all your, recommendations. My, Instagram, was filled with. Your. Ideas anyway, thank you so much also to all of my pages because, you, guys they, allow me to buy, these. Wonderful. Gouache. Paintings, and art supplies and. This. Amazing paper and, pencils. And everything so thank you so much patrons for allowing me to do this, super nice quality, videos, and. For, allowing me to rent, a space such, like this gorgeous space you guys are the best so. Yeah, my love's I hope you're having a wonderful. Friday. And. A lovely weekend ahead and, I'll see you next week bye. Guys, bye bye. The, bye-bye.
