Magazine Cover Redesign: Student Feedback

Magazine Cover Redesign: Student Feedback


well hey good morning everybody how you
doing and it’s a beautiful really sunny Brighton one day no Sun didn’t know it so good
so this coffee mug actually I’ve been drinking out of almost every morning for
the last 12 years or so this was a gift actually from an exchange student from
the Czech Republic and I love this thing I was kind of short night to head to
wake up bright and early to run my rig to the mechanic to get some work done on
the brakes and early making some tutorials
it’s a beautiful crazy sunny day here in Montana and for today’s tutorial what I
want to do is actually more of a Q&A so I’ve got a bunch of students in a
membership group you can check it out at Doug Mitchell calm and she sent me a
message on slack with magazine cover she’s working on – want some feedback so
what we’re gonna do is take a look at this magazine cover and look at some
ways that it’s working well and look at how I would approach the design myself
as well as some things that we could do to improve this overall so we’re gonna
go ahead and dive in alright so let’s go and take a look at this so here is the
cover that she sent and it’s a great start there’s a lot of things that I
think are working well and there’s also some things that we’re gonna definitely
want to improve on so we’re just gonna start top-down and the first thing that
I notice is there’s three things that are competing for your visual attention
the first is the masthead across the top the fatherly logo or what we call the
masthead and we’ve got that in red letters bold at the top then one thing
you wouldn’t really think about but this architecture this building here is very
unique and because of its size it’s really commanding a lot of attention on
the page and then we have the father and son here down below now as you probably
know anytime you have a purse or you know a face on the cover of
anything as humans our eyes tend to get drawn towards their faces we’re trying
to read into their eyes and trying to decipher as much information as we can
from the photo so we’ve got this big red text this big building and then we’ve
got faces all competing for your first attention so what’s a little bit
confusing with this cover is when we zoom in close and look at this thing you
can tell that it’s obviously been kind of cut out and placed in this image so
what I would do is make it much bigger and so let’s go ahead and look at some
other magazine covers for inspiration or jump up here in the Safari we got some
magazine covers all right so if we look at these there’s really a couple
approaches one is you’ve got some covers where the masthead goes above the image
and is always above the image like Time magazine down here always has the time
logo over the forehead of the people on the cover and you’ve got some magazines
here like Forbes where you have this cutout where the head pops in front of
it actually here’s one more time did that as well so it just kind of depends
on the look you’re going for but by doing something like that you’ll notice
most of these images are substantially larger on the cover and not quite so
small down here in the bottom okay so that’s one thing I would do is I’d bring
up the the main image much larger now to do that this image looks kind of grainy
so you definitely want to start with a good image to begin with now this is the
cover so you should be able to find high quality photos for the cover of whatever
you’re doing if you don’t have one you need to make sure you get one because
it’s the first impression you’re dealing with so what I’m gonna do is go ahead
and let’s just make a new I’m just gonna build over the top of this one so this
is just an image I brought into Photoshop so we’re just gonna build over
the top and let’s just pretend like let’s start with a better image so I’m
gonna come back here and I already did a search for father and son here at pixels
comm this is a good one we’ll explore where I’m just gonna download this one
we’ll do that and let me scroll down a little bit here’s another good one this
one’s awesome that’s got some character he’s smiling they’re having fun that’s
another thing too like what is the facial what is the story telling you on
the face what’s the facial expression so that’s really important as well the nice
thing about this one were their backs are to us
it makes it a little more ambiguous to where it could be anybody it might be
more relational to somebody as far as your your target demographic is able to
relate to that person let’s go ahead and scroll through here just a little bit
more now what I’m looking for here’s a good one although his eyes are kind of
closed it’s a little blurry let’s find another one here what I’m looking for
now is so the one that we have here it’s it’s a little more they’re side-by-side
the one that I downloaded they’re stacked vertical so that actually could
be good for the layout of this magazine let’s just see here we’ve got these two
you know we’ll go ahead and work with these for now all right so first things
first let’s go ahead and drag these images in here just to get them started
it’ll scale it up all right all right so we got that one in here and I’m just
gonna bring the other one in while we’re at it all right so you got some some
really good photos to work with now this one already works really well it’s got
some nice negative space around the edges where I could drop it in some text
and the one below it actually same thing it’s nice and dark and I actually like
this one better because the trees behind it have some darker and the areas that
we can drop some text in over the top this one is nice but there’s some really
hot spots down here where it’s kind of blown out so I would either want to
maybe cut him out or select it and darken the background but if we’re
trying to work with just a photo this one might get us there better so we’ve
got that now the next thing I want to look at is just the amount of fonts we
have on here so we’ve got a sans serif font up here we’ve got the main masthead
which is another font so there’s two fonts this one looks like it’s different
than this one so we’re gonna call it three fonts so we’ve got all these and
then we’ve got this font here four so it’s pretty busy with fonts so we want
to try and narrow that down and make sure that we only have you know two
three fonts max to try and keep it from being too busy the next thing that I see
is we’ve got this lowercase turned out right tracked out and so for me I would
typically try and keep your your lowercase letters with regular kerning
or tracking because we don’t want it to don’t know it just for me it just feels
like everything’s really stretched-out so let’s go ahead and pay
it this a little bit more all right so for the sake of working fast what I’m
gonna do is actually select the fatherly text let’s go ahead and sample this
color I’m actually the magic wand tool and I want to sample I’m gonna turn off
contiguous what that means is it’s any color that it sees in this entire layer
it doesn’t have to be touching all right so I’m gonna click on that and now
pretty much just the fatherly text is selected with a little bit down here in
this Jersey so now I’m going to hit the letter M to get my rectangular marquee
and hold on the option key to click and array you to remove the selection from
here so now I have just the fatherly text I’ve got a new blank layer up here
and I’m gonna hit the letter I to get my eyedropper tool and we’re gonna sample
this color oh I got a Ben right layer here we go I went back to all layers
sample that layer now we’ve got that maroon burgundy color and I’m going to
turn off this layer behind it just to make sure I’ve got other selections
cleaned up here we’ve got some extra pixels here so we’re just gonna remove
that for my selection hit option delete to fill with my foreground color and now
I’ve got this fatherly text right on top I know it’s it’s we’re working fast and
loose here but so now we’ve got this that we can work with and let’s go ahead
and bring in that image that we were gonna play with here I’ll drop this in
scale it up and maybe even crop quite a bit here throw this behind the masthead
now you’re gonna have to decide on as far as the text here it’s difficult to
see so if your publication always has the same color you might have to change
how you work with things but what I’m gonna do is it actually changes to be
white so I’m going to lock the pixels on this layer what that does is now I can
fill this with a foreground color of white option delete and it’s gonna fill
just any pixel data so by locking this right here it’s gonna lock transparent
pixels so that way you can’t fill anything that’s transparent I hope that
makes sense it’s a really great shortcut you can use for just about anything all
right so we got that there now I’m gonna throw a mask on this layer and let’s see
how Photoshop does I’m gonna actually try
going to select and we’re gonna go to select subject and just see how
Photoshop does if it can see this photo it does a pretty stinking good job so
we’re gonna go ahead and run with that selection and maybe clean it up a tiny
bit I made the letter Q to get my quick mask tool going hit let her be to get my
brush and let’s make sure we’re painting with a nice soft brush here we are
alright and I’m just gonna clean this up quick we don’t want to get too crazy
with our selection just right now just trying to get through this tutorial
let’s see here and actually I don’t even need to make sure that I only need to
make sure that this selection up here is good so let’s turn the quick mask mode
back off real quick and selecting hair especially on this background can get
real tricky so let’s turn this off and just kind of take a look at this you
know let’s go ahead and I’m just gonna add to the selection with my lasso tool
just to kind of get it a little bit better here get it close at least
alright just cleaning things up and I’m not too worried in this in this case
here’s the deal we’re just trying to make it mask behind the letters here so
realistically all I need to make sure that’s good is right where he would pop
in front of these letters so I don’t need to worry too much about the
selection but what I’m gonna do is come up here with my selection like my lasso
tool selected and click select and mask and now what I can do is paint over with
my refine brush let’s see a selection tool the refine edge brush and we’re
just going to try and let Photoshop work its magic here and we’re just trying to make it look
realistic right where those letters are so I’m not gonna get too picky about the
rest of this but we’re kind of getting it close just trying to make Photoshop
do most of the little heavy lifting here we’ll click okay I’ll call it good for
now and now I’m gonna do is jump cut this selection to a new layer actually
and I can bring this text behind that of the layer I should have worked with a
mask but I’m just I’m just trying to go fast here guys so what we’re gonna do is
just take a look at that and that actually did a pretty stinkin good job
of knocking that behind the text and what I like about this is it just creeps
up just a little bit beyond the letters but you can still read most of the text
it’s cropped well he’s looking into the letters here and it really engages the
viewer all right so now I’m gonna do is let’s just go ahead and look at the
original real quick and you can see that we’ve got a lot of different stories and
we could easily feature all of them but what I’m gonna do is just grab a couple
of them so we are parenting 101 and maybe we’ll just kind of play with some
sizing here and we’re just gonna do a regular sans-serif just I don’t know
we’ll figure something out here now instead of leaving this I’m just
going to make this all caps I’m going to cut this command X to cut
it drag down a copy of this text the reason why I’m doing this is because I
want to be able to have be able to quickly grab and select these so let’s
drop this down here I want a little more space on the
right-hand side here so I’m gonna do is select we’ve got this layer sitting on
top I’m gonna select this one and the original image below it and we’re just
gonna drag it over a little bit which is nice that we’ve got the selection and
the two layers sitting on top because now we can just move it and it’s gonna
knock out those letters wherever we drop it so I’m thinking we’re gonna scoot it
over just a little bit so that way we’ve got the left edge just barely you know
touching over here we’ve got a little bit of margin a little bit of space but
that gave me more space down the right-hand side to kind of work with
this here so let’s go and again I like to break my text into a couple layers
because then I can really refine my edges or find my edges refine my type in
a way that feels a little more natural just to grab whichever one that I want
and scale it into place without having to try and mess the whole line at a time
all right hope that makes sense guys it’s not even 7:00 yet I am I’m needing
more coffee here all right there we go that’s looking good that’s better that’s
cool all right so I like how this works fits in this gap here parenting 101
let’s see what else could we grab let’s go back to the original cover kids
mental health signs to look out for alright let’s drop that in here sorry we’re using the same font but I’m
gonna change so within the font family we’ve got some different weight so I’m
gonna change this to regular just to kind of change this up a bit but still
keep it within the same font family and I’m playing with the guide down the
right-hand side here the alignment just to make this all look like it belongs
together and maybe let’s add one more story to this so bond over sports fun
activities to do through kids so bond over sports is nice in this magazine
cover because we’ve actually got some sports happening here in the background
but in the image that I threw on this cover obviously there’s no sports but it
looks like they’re having a fun activity so what we’re gonna do is grab fun
activities to do with your kids and I’m just going to clone this all right so let’s see how this lines up
here all right I’m going to align this to the right kind of getting that flush
right design layout here and I’m gonna call that good for the sake of this
tutorial so actually it’s cancel that there all right so that is what we ended
up with for the design now what I want to point out here on this compared to
the original let’s go ahead and pull up the original real quick so again with
the original we had a lot of stuff going on we got some you know the colors this
yellow stands out but it doesn’t really borrow any color from the photo we’ve
got this maroon color on the top we’ve got this you know kind of a lot going on
and I think that it’s important to remember that you can really simplify
things and break it down to the base you know the very basics in this case
all of my fonts are white all my text is white and I’m really letting the image
pop through on this now I could if I wanted to maybe sample some color so for
example I see we’ve got this kids shorts you know maybe we try and borrow that
color let’s just see if it works if I sample from the image that’s not bad
so by sampling a color directly from the image it helps it tie in it gives you a
little bit of something to work with but everything still feels like it belongs
together and and makes it feel cohesive and and on purpose with this other cover
I feel like there’s you know I don’t see anywhere else in the image where this
yellow color comes from and it kind of it just kind of feels like there’s a lot
going on so I hope that helps you know overall really great approach just just
tightening up some things like those fonts and keeping everything literally
we have two fonts we’ve got the masthead and then we’ve got this main font here
in open sans we’re just using bold and I think we’re using light here just to to
make it stand out a little bit and that’s everything like that’s all we did
kept it really really simple I hope that helps I know a little bit scattered
today I’ve got some flies flying around my office I’ve got the Sun in my eyes
barely had any coffee yet but it’s really important to me to try

Professional Artists Redraw Their Old Art

Professional Artists Redraw Their Old Art


– [Jacob] Welcome to Drawfee, where we take your dumb ideas… – [Nathan] And make even dumber drawings! – I’m Jacob.
– I’m Nathan. – I’m Julia.
– And I’m Karina. – [Jacob] And guys,
it’s Newsday once again, (shouting) the newest day of them all! – [All Hosts] (cheering) Woo! – [Julia] Wow, wow, wow! – [Nathan] Get those old days outta here! – [Jacob] We’re done with them,
we don’t need them anymore. Today’s Newsday is
brought to us by Karina! – [Karina] Well, technically– – [Jacob] This was Karina’s idea, and we thought it was a really fun idea. – [Karina] I mean other
people had suggested it. I’d seen a bunch of suggestos for it. – [Jacob] No one’s thought of this idea– – [Karina] And then I stole them! – [Jacob] Before Karina, who thought of it all on her own and invented this idea. No one’s ever done this before! – [Nathan] Wow, congrats– – [Karina] Whoa, whoa, whoa! – [Nathan] on coming up with
this original idea, Karina. – [Jacob] We’re redrawing
our old drawings– – Thank you.
– from the past. – [Julia] (amazed) Wow! – [Jacob] We’re dredging
up some bad memories of bad art.
(laughs and groans) – [Nathan] We’re turning
our Oldsdays into Newsdays. – Exactly–
– Wow! – [Jacob] And I think that’s beautiful. (laughter) We’ve already drawn these ones, and we’re going to be showing you the speed draw version
and commenting over it, explaining what we
changed and what we did, and where we were at when
we drew the original thing. – [Nathan] It’s already drawn twice. – [Jacob] It’s already drawn twice. It’s the most it can already be drawn. (laughter) Nathan, you’re up first. Let’s first take a look
at your original drawing, and you can explain the context of this. – [Nathan] Sure.
(whoosh) Any–
– Oh! Any Drawfee fans that have
been with us from the beginning might recognize Pefley, the–
– Pefley! – [Nathan] Pefley, the
least threatening demon from the least threatening
demons episode of Drawfee. I believe it’s one of the ones that we recorded for College Humor’s
Facebook page, but I… – [Jacob] So this is way back. – [Nathan] Yeah, it’s on YouTube. It was uploaded March 2014. It’s the seventh episode
we uploaded to YouTube. – Wow!
– And I re-watched it, and by golly, it’s a miracle that Drawfee ever became anything. (laughter) You can very hearly clear–
(everyone laughing) Very hear, very–
(laughter intensified) It’s a miracle that
Drawfee is still a thing. It’s a miracle–
– I love it! – [Nathan] that anyone listens to this. You can hear someone sneeze so many times (laughter)
in the episode. – Amazing.
(laughter) – [Nathan] We just recorded in our office! – [Jacob] Yeah, open office. – [Nathan] And people are just chatting and loudly sipping drinks, and sneezing. – [Julia] This was even
pre-Caldwell popping up from his–
– Sipping drinks? – [Julia] From his seat,
going, “We’re recording!” – [Nathan] We’re gonna
be recoding some content! (laughter)
– Yeah! – [Jacob] That’s what he would do. – [Nathan] That’s what he would do. So yeah, this is my drawing. It took me about five minutes
to draw in the episode. This redraw took me about a half-hour. – All right!
– Nice! – [Jacob] Okay, so you just
gave it a nice little glow-up. – [Nathan] I gave him a little glow-up. – From five years ago.
– Yeah. – [Jacob] Well, let’s take
a look at what you did. I’m going to go ahead
and count this video in. – Okay.
– Three, two, one, go! – [Nathan] So, yeah, I don’t know. It’s like, I don’t know how much of this is my style has improved versus I just had more time to do this one, but– – [Jacob] I mean, I can tell you already your style’s improved, just looking at the original line quality and stuff. – Yes.
(laughter) My confidence improved. I tried to get rid of the
many tangents that exist. Like if you look at that original, the nose just super
tangents with the glasses in the original.
– Oh, yeah! – [Jacob] It sure does,
bumps right up on there. (laughter)
– Oh, it’s just brushing against it. – [Nathan] The thumb and the collar, just everything about it. I tried to give this one
a little bit more depth. – [Julia] It’s like you
aimed to make tangents in the original.
(laughter) That’s little tangent boy. – [Nathan] I didn’t. That wasn’t my goal,
it’s just what happened. – [Julia] Also, much like the
original Drawfee episodes, you can see all of Photoshop, but this time you’re not
moving the canvas around all willy-nilly. – [Nathan] Well, that’s the thing, is because Facebook
videos were square-shaped, and so we recorded it in square-shape. And yeah, we didn’t do any editing. – That’s true.
– We didn’t even do a little zoomy. – [Julia] You made those boys so squat. – [Nathan] I wanted to
squat ’em up a little bit. – [Karina] Aw, his babies! – [Nathan] I wanted to
make ’em a little rounder, give ’em a little bit more form. – [Jacob] Yeah, he’s
definitely got more weight and feels more three-dimensional. – [Julia] Yeah, those legs
are not supporting nothing in the original one.
(laughter) – [Jacob] He’d be falling
right backwards, yeah. – [Julia] Yeah, there he goes. – [Nathan] They’re super skinny, and also just not sort of on anything. – [Julia] Yeah, his thighs
are taking all the weight to be able to throw his
weight back to do that. But you fixed it in the original. See, you like centered, yeah.
– Ooh, flip tag! – Yeah!
– Yeah, you flipped it, and fixed the weight.
– (drawing out words) Wow! – [Nathan] I wanted it to be better. I wanted it to actually be an improvement. My biggest fear going into this challenge was that I would do it,
(laughter) and I would add extra details, but I would lose the clarity of the image, and it wouldn’t even be better. – [Jacob] You’d end up
with something worse. – [Nathan] Yeah, that was my biggest fear, is that I improved none. – [Jacob] That was my fear, too, and I was really worried
when I started on mine that that was gonna be the case. – [Nathan] I think this
is a nice little glow-up, a nice little redo–
– Definitely. – [Nathan] Of my friend. – [Jacob] It’s got so
much more character to it. – [Nathan] Yeah, it’s like the same idea, he’s like a little nerdy demon. He’s not threatening anybody, he’s just going over the accounts of hell. – [Jacob] He’s no longer
a one single pill-shaped. He’s got a bit more– – [Nathan] I gave him
a little bit more form. I didn’t want to make
him too un-pill-shaped. He’s still sort of pilly. It’s like pillows on top of a pill. – [Jacob] Yeah, I was just honored to see the bean shape in full effect here. Even before my time at Drawfee, you were still reppin’ the bean with this character. Even if you didn’t know
that’s what you were doing. – [Nathan] I mean, Caldwell’s a bean boy, just like you, though. – [Jacob] Yeah, oh, he’s a
big, beefy bean boy, for sure. – [Nathan] I’m still not
great at drawing glasses. – [Jacob] No one is, I don’t think. – [Nathan] And right
around here in the drawing, Tristan walked in with his baby, (laughter) and the entire office lost their minds. – [Jacob] The baby’s
very cute, is the thing. – [Nathan] So this is me,
trying to make glasses look good while a million women scream at a baby. – [Julia] And we all compliment the ability for him to hold his head, which is apparently a thing you compliment for young babies. – [Nathan] Well, he’s three months old, and apparently him
having good head control is a big deal.
– Yeah. – [Karina] I have no idea about babies. – [Julia] Yeah, me, neither, except all the people
who had children came up, and they were like, “Oh,
he has good head control.” And I was like, “What?” – [Karina] Yeah, yeah! – [Julia] This demon
has good head control. – [Nathan] This demon
has great head control. He has no neck, his head just sort of– – Yeah!
– Yeah! – [Nathan] comes right out of the torse. – [Jacob] Doesn’t really
need good head control– – Yeah.
– if you have no neck. – [Julia] I also like what
you did with the horns. They’re less of like a thing
that was glued onto the head and more like a thing
coming out of it, you know? – [Nathan] Oh, thanks, Julia! – [Julia] Like that line,
you got rid of that line, and I feel like that makes a
big difference, even in there. – [Nathan] Yeah, I mean again, I was… Honestly, like when we recorded
these old Drawfee episodes, I didn’t think anyone
was gonna watch them. (laughter)
– That’s a fair assumption. – And yet here we are.
– Whoops! – [Nathan] It’s really
mind-boggling to me. And a lot of the comments on that video are just people saying, “Bless you” to the person sneezing.
(laughter) And so even back then, the people who did choose to watch the videos were cool. – [Jacob] Yeah. – [Nathan] I guess, thank you. Thank you for watching.
(laughter) Thank you for letting us become a thing. – [Jacob] Yeah, I guess to be fair, we still don’t conduct
ourselves in a manner befitting people that are
watched very frequently. We do better. (laughter) – [Nathan] Yeah, again,
that’s the sort of thesis of this particular video,
and Drawfee in general, is that we’re not the
best, but we’re improving. – [Jacob] We’re improving at a steady– – [Nathan] Slight, yeah, five years… – [Julia] Much like our art. (laughter) – [Jacob] Yeah, a steady clip. It’s not like leaps and bounds, you know? But it’s a steady clip. – [Karina] That’s how you do it. – [Nathan] If you put it side by side, you can see the improvement. – [Jacob] Oh, totally. I think it’s so fun to see, just looking at this original bean devil, and just purely on line confidence alone– – [Julia and Nathan] Yeah. – [Jacob] It’s so much better. – This is so fun!
– Yeah. – [Julia] I love this color scheme, too. – [Nathan] Thanks! I’m not sure if it’s Torchy’s. (laughter)
It might be Torchy’s. – The taco place?
– I need to look this up. – Yeah, um–
– Oh! – [Nathan] I think their
devil’s a little redder, but… – [Julia] Good guess! – [Jacob] This is Torchy’s accountant. – Yeah.
(laughter) – [Julia] John Torchy. – [Nathan] (using nerdy
accent) Oh, these numbers aren’t looking good at all. Whoa, we gotta move more tacos! (laughter) – [Jacob] Oh, they move a lot of tacos. – [Nathan] They do, yeah. – They’re doing just fine.
– They move a lot of tacos into my belly, any time I’m in Austin. – [Jacob] Mm-hmm, mm-hmm. – [Karina] And now I
want to go to Torchy’s. – [Nathan] Let’s all go
to Torchy’s after this. – [Julia] Let’s, yeah. – [Jacob] If we go to RTX next year, we’ll all go to Torchy’s. – [Karina] (whispers aggressively) Yes! – [Julia] You’ll be happy to
know their logo devil is red. – [Nathan] This guy doesn’t
get quite as much sun. (laughter) Yeah, this is basically it. I’m just adding a little shading now. – [Julia] I mean, even just
the shapes in here are better. He has so many, I don’t know, he’s not just a tube with a
painted-on shirt, you know, which is something that
I think we all improve in over time, hopefully. And this just has so much more
character and feel to him. – Well, thanks!
– Yeah, definitely. – [Nathan] I feel like my
character has been improved by your nice comments. – [Jacob] I feel like it’s been improved by your good art. – Yeah!
– Yay! – [Jacob] Way to go, Nathan! – Thank you!
– Good job, Nathan! – [Nathan] This is a glow-up! – You did it!
– This is a glow-up. – [Jacob] And this is only… I always like to point this out, too. This is only a five-year difference. – [Nathan] This is a five-year difference. – [Jacob] And it’s such a big change. – [Nathan] Five years and 25 minutes. – Yeah.
– Difference. (laughter)
– Exactly! – Yeah.
(laughter) – [Jacob] Five years of
very consistent practice. Having to do it–
(laughter) Well, by practice I
mean you’ve just had to draw a lot for your job. – It’s true.
– That’s practice. – That is practice.
– Yeah, that counts. – That counts as practice.
– Sweet. – [Julia] Don’t go, “hmm-hmm” like that. – [Jacob] Yeah, don’t go “hmm-hmm.” – [Nathan] I can do what I want. – [Jacob] That’s work. Mine is up next.
– Yay! – [Jacob] I’ve had my
art on the internet for about a decade now.
– Nice! – [Jacob] And this is from
the beginning of that decade, so this is 10-ish years
old, nine years old. It’s from 2010. – Nice!
– Wow! – [Jacob] It’s one of
the very first comics I posted on the internet. I’m gonna go ahead and
read it to you, right now. – Thank you.
– Yay! – Because it’s not–
– Ooh, look at that font! – It’s not easy to read–
– Oh, that hand lettering. – [Jacob] I’ll tell you that. – [Nathan] Jacob, is
the person driving you? – [Jacob] The person driving is me, and the person in the passenger is my friend, Kyle, from college. – [Nathan] Shout out to Kyle from college! – [Jacob] Shout out to Kyle from college. So, Panel 1 here, I’m saying, “Man, I really want some beer, “but I don’t want to pay for beer. “I wish I could just pirate beer.” And then Kyle says, “So basically “you’re saying you want to steal “a six-pack of beer?” And then I say, “No, that’s
not the same at all.” So it’s just sort of a commentary on pirating, like downloading. – Yeah.
– Yeah. – [Karina] You wouldn’t download a beer. – [Jacob] That was the
description I put under the comic, – [Karina] Wow! – [Jacob] is “You
wouldn’t download a beer.” (laughter)
– Genius! – [Jacob] And what you might be noticing, what you might be
noticing about this comic is that it’s not funny, per se. (intense laughter) And there’s not really like a joke – Uh-huh.
– or any humor to it, and also it just looks like dog ass. (laughter) I think those are the main things in my… (speakers talk over one another) – [Nathan] It’s two people
in a car, driving at night. – [Jacob] You can tell what it is, and that’s about the
most you can say for it. – [Nathan] You can tell what it is. – [Karina] mean, that’s
all that really counts. – Yeah.
– For sure. But I thought I could do a bit better now. – [Nathan] I’m so excited. – [Jacob] And I was determined
to not change the “joke,” so I didn’t alter what the joke is. I changed the dialogue to make it sound a little more natural. – Okay.
– And I’ll just start playing, so you guys can see, and
I’ll comment as I go here. Talk about what I did. I put it there on the side so I’d have to see it–
– Yeah. – [Jacob] the whole time. (laughter) – [Nathan] Oh, we’re
getting an extra panel? – [Jacob] I felt it
needed an extra panel to house the dialogue so that
it’s not quite so bad. And then I–
– Get this! – [ Julia] Thumbnail! – [Jacob] Yeah, I wanted
to thumbnail it out. I thought I’d start with
the same sort of structure, which I did end up actually
changing, you’ll see later. – [Nathan] Oh, and you
updated your hairdos as well. – [Jacob] I did, I updated the hairdos, and then I was like first things first. This doesn’t need to be
the same shot every time. – [Nathan] Is this– – [Jacob] I can do shot, reverse shot. – [Nathan] Oh, yeah! – [Jacob] So that it’s
a actual conversation, you can tell who’s
talking easily without– – [Julia] But if you do one shot, you only have to figure out the one shot. – [Nathan] Yeah, you can copy paste, like I did for a lot of my
old College Humor comics. (laughter) – [Jacob] Exactly! – [Nathan] It’s like,
“Oh, I got this drawing “pretty good, I don’t
want to have to redraw “this character again.”
– You little overachiever. – [Jacob] But if you
look at the first comic, you’ll notice I didn’t copy paste. – No, you…
– Yeah! – [Jacob] I redrew it all every time, and I still– – [Julia] You didn’t learn that trick yet. (laughter) – [Jacob] I still opted
to do the exact same shot, even though I had to draw it anyways. – [Nathan] Is this what your
friend, Kyle, looks like now? – [Jacob] Oh, well, he’s
in the military now, so he has a shaved head, but I’m kind of extrapolating on what his hair was like in college. – [Nathan] Gotcha. But you gave yourself your
cool hairdo that you have now. – [Jacob] Yeah, see now I
thought the original shot could be more interesting, so I changed it to be more of a 3/4 view from Kyle’s side of the car– – Wow!
– Nice. – [Nathan] Look at the
composition, already. – [Jacob] looking over at me. So just something more
interesting to see with your eyes. – [Nathan] It’s almost like
you’ve been doing comics online for a decade. – [Jacob] It’s almost like that. And it really is insane to me
to look at that original one and be like, “That’s a person who’s “been a professional
illustrator for five years.” (laughter) – [Nathan] You gotta start somewhere! I think it’s inspiring.
– Yeah. – [Nathan] I think someone could see that, and be like, “Oh, so that means “that if my art looks like this now, “if I keep at it for 10
years, it can get better.” – [Jacob] It’ll be better! And I’m not an incredible artist, but it’s definitely better. So that’s good, that’s a good thing. So you see, I’m just working out some of the facial expressions, trying to figure out where I want my dude to be looking. – [Nathan] Aw, he’s so whisk… Keep your eyes on the road, Jacob! – No!
– Why are you driving? – [Jacob] Now, here’s where I remembered how fun it is to hand letter. – Oh!
– You’re really good at it. – [Jacob] It’s a pain,
and it takes a long time, but it does look good when you’re done. – [Julia] Yeah. – [Nathan] Oh, that’s a thick “have.” – [Jacob] Yeah, well,
I wanted to emphasize. Another thing I wanted
to change was emphasizing certain letters to kind of control how the sentence sounds. – [Nathan] I really want to
(emphasizing) have some beer. – [Jacob] I really want to
(emphasizing) have some beer, but I don’t want to
(emphasizing) pay for beer. So emphasizing those. – [Julia] That zoom-in
made it look like you said, “I want to have some… “beer.”
(laughter) – Dang.
– So you’ll see I have to readjust sort of all of
where the word bubbles go because I’ve always been bad at planning that ahead of time. So I had to kind of
move everything around. – [Julia] It’s something I had to learn much later in doing comics. It’s like, “Oh, yeah, I
should also figure out “where the word bubbles
go before I actually do “all the things.” – Yep.
– I never did that. (laughter) I never did that, and I worked at Dorkly for eight years doing comics. (laughter) I just crammed them in at some point. – [Karina] Bless you, Julia. – [Nathan] I would just raise the ceiling on all my panels. – [Jacob] Yeah. – [Julia] Make it longer. – [Jacob] I mean, you’ll
see that in this comic that I did here, I tried to
make room for the panels. I put in where they were gonna go. – [Julia] But that never really– – [Jacob] Yeah, I just
didn’t leave enough space– – [Julia] dictates where
they’ll actually be. – [Jacob] In any circumstance,
I didn’t leave enough space to actually house the text. – [Nathan] I love that
you’re just getting these letters in what? – I’m not.
– You didn’t even need to– – [Jacob] This is multiple attempts for almost every letter. You see it flickering? – [Nathan] Yeah, but it’s like… – [Karina] It’s not that many. – [Nathan] It’s so straight! You don’t have any guidelines or anything. This is really impressive to me. – [Jacob] It’s one thing I accidentally taught myself to do just because
I didn’t ever do it easier. So eventually, I just kind of got good. I had something to do here, I guess. – [Nathan] This is when the baby came in. – [Jacob] No, because
I did this yesterday. (laughter) – Different baby.
– Yeah. – Sh-shut up!
– Shut up! It’s totally different. So there’s still not a joke here, but I thought it could be more like a two-character sort of
character-building conversation. With Kyle being more of the straight man, and maybe it was part of a larger story. It would just be a nice,
little conversation. – [Karina] Oh, yeah, this is page one of your weekly web comic. – [Jacob] Exactly, and
then it would be ongoing. – Jakey and Kyle.
(laughter) – Mm-hmm.
– In the car. – [Jacob] Shout outs to Kyle once again. And this part’s just inking, which is probably the thing
I’ve gotten the most better at, as I always talk about in these. – [Nathan] Those smooth inks. – Yeah.
(lips smacking) – [Jacob] I like doing them smooth inks, and you see I taper all
my lines individually. Like a weirdo. – [Nathan] I think it’s nice. – [Jacob] I like how it looks, but it is an effort. And then, also, a thing I’ve learned from doing comics at
College Humor for so long, is just don’t put in
any information in there that’s not completely necessary. So the backgrounds are just a couple lines to indicate this is a car, but I’m not doing any more than that. I clearly had something
big to do right there. I stopped for a long time. – [Nathan] You had to refill your Joseph. – [Jacob] Yeah, I had
to refill my hot Joseph. (laughter) But another thing that I feel is important to mention as well is that doing it this time around,
this redraw of the comic, took about an hour and a half, and that’s with those big, long pauses where I was doing something else. The original comic
would’ve taken me probably over four hours to do. – [Nathan] Wow. – [Jacob] Just because I was very slow, and I just really took my
time on every single comic. Every comic took me forever to do. So, I was really pleased that
I could produce something of much higher quality at
a fraction of the time, and that’s all College Humor influence. The speed all came from College Humor. – [Nathan] When you literally have to. – [Jacob and Julia] Yeah. – [Nathan] Kyle is kind
of a hunk in that panel. – [Jacob] Yeah, Kyle’s a bit of a hunk. I don’t know what else to say about that. – [Julia] Shout out again to Kyle. – [Nathan] Shout out to Kyle. – [Jacob] But he’s not on board with my idea to download beer, and so that’s kind of a mark against him in my book, personally. – [Karina] Hunk with morals. – [Nathan] Hunk with morals. – [Jacob] You see I am
blushing a little bit because I’ve embarrassed
myself in front of Kyle. (laughter) – [Julia] He’s just such a hunk. – [Jacob] He’s such a hunk. – [Julia] Dammit, I’ve embarrassed myself in front of a hunk. – [Jacob] This was my chance. – [Nathan] It’s one thing
to embarrass yourself in front of your friends, but in front of your hunky friends? – Yeah, you can’t.
– Mm-mm. – You can’t be doing that.
– You can’t be doing that. – [Jacob] Then just a couple
little more indicators of this is a car, and that’s it. – [Karina] I love how
you indicated it’s a car. – [Jacob] Yeah, I really– – [Karina] That’s not sarcasm. – [Jacob] Oh, it sounded like sarcasm. – [Karina] I’m sorry,
it’s just how I talk! (laughter) No, I think it’s nice. – [Jacob] Oh, thank you. – [Nathan] Yeah, this is really good! – [Karina] The simplicity of it. – [Nathan] The light, the line work, the characterization you have. Just looking at it, even if
I didn’t look at the words, I’m like, “Oh, this is interesting. “This is visually compelling.” – [Karina] Yeah. – [Jacob] Yeah, totally, that’s exactly what I was going for because
that’s one of the major things I learned from 2010 to now was what actually makes a
comic nice to look at and not just functional. And so I was trying to really
get a lot of that in there, and it’s a really thing
to look at side by side. It’s shows a lot of progress, even though nine years is a lot of time, it’s a lot of progress, too, so that’s good. If you’re out there making comics, the one thing I want to tell you is make your text legible,
(laughter) don’t do the thing on the left. – [Julia] Yeah. – [Nathan] You clearly
drew those word bubbles and then tried to fit the text inside is what I’m guessing is what (laughs)… – [Jacob] Yeah, I was
unwilling to compromise. – [Julia] Yeah, you looked
at that word bubble, and you were like, “There’s no other shape “for this word bubble nor
any other place it could go.” – [Karina] I’m not changing it! – [Nathan] The amount
of space on the right, it’s bumping up against
the left side (laughs). – [Julia] More than anything,
it’s a wonderful case study of the effectiveness of good word bubbles. – Yeah.
– Yeah. – [Julia] And good space.
(laughter) – [Jacob] Yeah, that
makes a giant difference in a comic’s legibility and
how pleasing it is to look at. So if you’re out there making comics, and you’re starting out, if
I could give you the one tip, it’s make it incredibly legible because that is a good way
to get people to read it, and if people have even the slightest bit of hard time reading it,
they will just move on. – [Karina] Yeah, I’m very glad
you read the original to us (laughter)
because I wasn’t gonna try. – [Jacob] No, why would you? No one would try. (laughter) – [Nathan] You improved, good job! – [Jacob] I improved! – Yay!
– Glow-up. That’s it for me. Are we on to Karina next? – [Karina] It’s my turn, I suppose. – [Nathan] Yay! – [Karina] Oh, boy, oh, boy! I reached way back for this one. – [Jacob] Oh, yes, this rules! – [Julia] Oh, my God! – [Karina] ‘Cause I still
have a Deviant Art up. – [Nathan] When is this from? – [Karina] 2006. – [Julia] Is that a Gaussian
blur moon back there? – [Karina] I was 13 ’cause
this was pre-high school. I know that much, so must’ve been like 13. This is my weird, Yu-Gi-Oh GX
romance novel cover fan art. (laughter) The title on Deviant Art was
“From the Lips of an Angel,” like the Hinder song. – [Nathan] Like the Hinder song! – [Karina] Very mid-2000s hetero-nonsense. And I was like, “It’s nothing like “anything I really do currently. “Let’s redraw it.” – [Julia] This screams middle school. – Yeah.
– Yeah – The airbrush–
– It’s so middle school! – [Julia] The airbrush shadows, the really thin, no muscles
or definition legs and arms. Yeah, they’re tubes. – [Nathan] I love these legs! – [Karina] Everything’s really lumpy because I didn’t know any better, and I used a mouse. – [Jacob] Yeah, that was
everyone in middle school. – [Nathan] That’s pretty good
line control for a mouse. – Yeah, it’s great!
– Thank you! – [Nathan] The hair, especially. – [Karina] I guess. – [Julia] The other middle school tell, is that this is happening
on a really thick ledge, which is what all middle school is, like, yeah, “I want to draw
two people about to kiss. “Oh, God, I have to do a background. “Uh, put a moon and a ledge. “Just put them on a thing.” I definitely did that as well. – [Nathan] And then it’s like, shading? That’s just lumping in airbrush
wherever you feel like it. – [Karins] Yeah, you just
put something, I don’t know, light sources? (imitates
electricity buzzing) (laughter)
Ignore that. – [Nathan] This is a whole mood. – [Karina] I really like
going through my old art and redrawing it so this is one that I had been wanting
to do for some time. – Nice!
– Oh, I’m excited then. – [Karina] I thought it’d be fun. – [Jacob] All right,
I’m gonna count this in. Three, two, one, go! – [Karina] So this is
a 13-year old drawing from when I was 13, so
this is half a lifetime of improvement on my end. – [Nathan] Wow, you’ve doubled, already, just like instantly. It’s like look at the form,
look at the shape, so good. – [Julia] Did any of us do sketches like anatomy sketches
before we did drawings? Because I certainly did not. – [Jacob] As when I was younger? – [Karina] Like in general? – Like as a–
– As a wee child? – [Julia] As a wee child. – No!
– No! You start with the face,
and you go from there! – [Karina] Yeah, I just wanted to make it look like my mangas. (laughter) – [Julia] Yeah, straight to it. – [Karina] I don’t care what
happened underneath all that. – [Julia] Oh, a flip! – [Nathan] That’s a flip. – [Karina] Yeah, get ready
for a lot of flipping because I’m very weak at
drawing faces looking right, so we gotta make it look… No, other way around. I can’t do it facing left. – Okay.
– Interesting. – [Karina] That’s my weakness. – [Jacob] So you flip it, and then do it. – [Karina] I can’t hide that. – I see.
– Revealed! – [Karina] I can do it, but
it’s always gonna be wrong until I flip it. So this is just a lot of actual drawing. I tricked you into letting
me do an actual drawing. – [Jacob] Oh, but it’s so fun to watch. – [Nathan] Yeah, this is
really, this is so steamy! (laughter) – [Jacob] Also, your
original picture is 100% gonna be the thumbnail for this episode. (laughter)
– Fantastic! – [Jacob] No chance it’s not gonna be. – [Karina] It’s a fun one! I drew a lot of weird
shit when I was this age, so this is one of the
more normal ones, I think. A lot of weird crossover type nonsense. So this one was one that I was like, “Yeah, gotta hide some
of the weirder stuff “to be found on it’s own.” – [Nathan] (whispering) Look at these good clothing folds. – (whispering) Yeah.
– (whispering) Yeah. – [Jacob] Yeah, this is just skill. This is straight up skill. Karina flexin’. – [Karina] It’s just, I
learned since I was 13. I did it!
– You did it, congrats! (laughter) – [Karina] I really, like
I said, I did suggest this because I saw a lot of people saying we should do this type of episode in comments before, and it’s just something
I already like to do ’cause I get a lot of joy out of it, out of revisiting my old nonsense and doing it again. I like to think of it
as doing little fan arts for my younger self. – [Jacob] Oh, that’s so nice. – [Nathan] I like that your characters also seem to have grown up. Like they were 13 when
you originally drew them, and now they’re adults. – [Jacob] Yeah. Oh, man, so when you look
back at your old art, do you have the cringe still,
or is it just kind of like– – [Karina] I guess a little cringe, but it’s also like… Because the way I think of it, it’s like, oh, when I drew the original, I had this image in my mind of how cool it looked and what
it was supposed to look like, but in reality I just made
that weird drawing up there. So if I redo it now, I can make it look closer to the way I thought it was gonna look when I was little. – Yeah, that’s kind of sweet.
– Yeah. – [Julia] That is pretty sweet. – [Karina] I really like it. – [Nathan] It’s a little
gift to your past self. – [Karina] Yeah! – [Jacob] I hope past Karina
is watching this right now. – [Karina] Shout out to
past Karina and Kyle! – [Julia] Those hands are so good. – [Nathan] Yeah, these are real nice. – [Jacob] Yeah, really good hands. – [Julia] That hand was just so nice. – [Jacob] And I’m lookin’ at that claw, that glob claw in the original. (laughter) – [Karina] Yeah, whatever was
going on there, who knows? – [Nathan] Oh, is he still
gonna have his sharp claws? – [Karina] Something like that. – [Nathan] Oh, boy, oh man! Yes!
– Yes! – Yes!
– You gotta! – [Karina] Whatever is
going on in this picture? – [Nathan] This rules! (laughter) Oh, my gosh! – [Jacob] I get powerful Inuyasha vibes– – [Julia] Yeah, definitely. – [Jacob] from this pairing. – [Karina] There was
definitely some Inuyasha energy at this time in my life. (laughs) – [Nathan] Demon claw boy… – [Julia] You fixed the angle of the bottom part of the leg. It was a little too
far in on the original, and now you’ve corrected it. Again, it’s like a weight thing. This person actually looks like they’re on their knees. It’s so good. – [Nathan] You kept the
studded belt, I’m glad. – [Karina] Yeah, you gotta
keep the studded belt. I will say that I actually did, well, this is the second one I did because I started another
one for this episode, and I was having way too
much trouble with the pose because it made no fuckin’
sense in the original, and I just gave up. So this one, I actually did much faster than I thought I would because I think the total for this draw was maybe three hours? – Yeah, not bad.
– Worth every minute of it. – [Jacob] If it had taken six hours, I still would’ve been happy with it. – [Karin] There’s still
some anatomy issues and some spacing issues. I did this yesterday,
and I’m already over it. But I’ll just redraw
it in another 13 years. – Yeah!
– Yeah! If we’re still doing
Drawfee in another 13 years, we can come back– – [Jacob] revisit these
versions and do them again. – [Karina] I think at that point, I drew the leg on the wrong layer. – [Nathan] (using creepy
voice) Got some dragony wings! – [Karina] (using creepy
voice) Yeah, some dragon wings. – [Nathan] (using creepy
voice) Some dragon wings. – [Nathan and Karina] Yug. (laughter) – [Karina] And I would like to reinforce that this is, in fact,
Yu-Gi-Oh GX fan art. (laughter)
Nothing has changed, really. – [Jacob] Who are these characters? – [Karina] This is Asuka and
Ryo, aka Alexis and Zane. (laughter) – [Jacob] What do you mean, aka? – [Karina] They have two names. – Why?
– Why? – [Karina] ‘Cause they
changed them in the English. – Oh, okay.
– That makes sense. – [Karina] Like Joey, Wheeler. – [Jacob] That’s not his Japanese name? (laughter)
– No, I wish! – [Nathan] Oh, yeah, someone used Joey’s Japanese name in commenting on the animation you made, and I was like, “Oh, Karina
drew this character so cute.” And I was like, “Who?” – Whomst?
– Whomst? – [Jacob] What’s Joey’s Japanese name? – [Karina] Jonouichi. – [Jacob] That’s right. I feel like Johnny
would’ve made more sense as a translation of that. – Johnny Wheeler!
– That’s not cool! But yeah, so then just coloring it. This is just my actual
process, wowee, zowee. – [Nathan] I love your splotchies. – Yeah.
– Yeah. – [Nathan] They’re so confident. – [Jacob] It’s so different
(laughter) from what I do,
– Yeah. – it makes me want to try it.
– It does. – Oh, yeah, the blood!
– Need to get in that good blood, not just airbrush it on, with a zero hardness brush. Little baby Karina, what was that? – [Jacob] What is it about
being in middle school and the airbrush tool
that’s so captivating? Because everyone in
middle school uses that, and it always looks horrible. – [Nathan] It’s something
that you can’t do with traditional media,
and so it’s fun to– – [Karina] You would need
one of those blow pens that you order off the TV commercial. – [Julia] An actual airbrush? – [Nathan] An actual airbrush– – [Jacob] Yeah, no, a
blow pen, specifically. – [Nathan] that uses air. – [Karina] No, that was
a thing on infomercials. – [Jacob] Yeah, I remember. – Yeah.
– Amazing. – [Jacob] You blow into one side of it… – Yeah! – Don’t breathe in! – Yeah, you could huff it.
– Don’t do that! (laughter) – [Nathan] Don’t breathe in, it’s drugs. (laughter) – [Karina] Oops! – [Nathan] This is so pleasant to watch. – [Julia] It’s so hard to
keep thinking of things to say because I just want to watch it. – [Jacob] (using creepy voice) I want to experience the magic! – [Karina] (using creepy voice) The magic. – [Nathan] (using creepy
voice) The dragon magic. – [Karina] (using creepy
voice) The dragon. – [Jacob] I hope this is so
inspirational for someone in middle school that
watches this and sees. And I feel like it also should be said, you know, we poke fun at
the middle school art– – [Karina] Yeah, we are mean
to our middle school selves. – [Jacob] Yeah, if you’re
a middle schooler– – [Nathan] You’ve earned that right, to be mean to yourself. – [Jacob] I just want to encourage you, if you’re making art that looks akin to the middle school art we’re joking about, that’s part of the process. It’s like you gotta go through that phase to get to this phase. – [Julia] Yeah, everyone gets to that step at some point, so…
– Yeah. – [Julia] It’ll happen to you. It happens to everyone, and it’s correct. – [Nathan] It’s correct,
you’ve gotta do that. You gotta do it. – [Julia] It’s like a rite of passage. – [Jacob] Yeah, you gotta
keep doing it for years. For 13 years. – [Julia] It’s one step
on the big stairs to– – Layer styles, baby!
– Wow! – [Nathan] (whining) Karina! – [Karina] Light source! (laughter) – [Nathan] A hidden
technique – light source! – [Karina] A hidden
technique – multiply layer! – [Jacob] Multiply layers
are such a Godsend. – [Karina] (chuckles) One multiply layer. – [Nathan] I remember in high school, when I was on the high school
newspaper illustration staff, and I learned about multiply
layers in Photoshop, and it blew my mind.
(laughter) – [Jacob] Wow, you learned that so early. – [Karina] Yeah, I forgot– – [Jacob] I didn’t really
learn how to do that. – [Karina] It took me
awhile to figure that out, and I kind of don’t remember how. – [Jacob] I don’t think I
really knew much about it until I was working at College Humor. I didn’t really know
much about layer styles until I was working here, and someone, probably Julia… (laughter) – [Nathan] Who are we kidding,
it was probably Julia. – [Jacob] Saw what I was doing and was like, “Why are
you doing that that way?” (laughter) – [Julia] Bold choice, Jacob. – [Jacob] Yeah, and then
showed me the multiply layer, and I was like, “Oh, my God!” – [Julia] I think I
learned multiply layers because at one point I, as you do in high school, had a pirated version of openCanvas, and they only have multiply layers. – Oh, interesting.
– Oh! – [Nathan] And for
anyone who’s unfamiliar, does someone want to
explain multiply layers? – [Jacob] Yeah! – [Nathan] Just so they know
what we’re talking about? – [Jacob] It’s a layer
that you put a color on it, and you put it over another layer, and it make it darker
in the color you did. – [Karina] I don’t know how
to explain layer styles ever. I’m just like, eh, just do it,
you’ll figure, you’ll know. – [Nathan] You’ll figure it out. – [Julia] My method for layer styles is I click on the layer styles,
and then I click normal, and then I go down on my keyboard until one looks right. – [Nathan] Until one looks right. – [Jacob] I do that a lot, too. Every time I’m doing light, I go through all of the light layers to see which one I like the most. Just play with it. – [Karina] Also, by the way,
I didn’t do a background because that hasn’t changed. (laughter) – That’s okay, this is
– Also, I was like, eh, I don’t really have time. – [Nathan] It’s like one of those scenes– – [Karina] Just pretend
they’re backlit by the moon. – [Nathan] Or it’s the scene where everything else fades away, and it’s just the moment.
– Yeah, yeah! – [Nathan] That’s like a
thing that happens in anime. – [Jacob] That’s a very anime thing. Karina, this rules. – [Karina] Thirteen years
of anime improvement. – Fantastic!
– Really, really good. – [Karina] Thank you. – [Jacob] Don’t let anyone
tell you you can’t draw anime. – Yeah!
– Yeah, Dad! – [Jacob] Keep drawing anime for 13 years, you’ll be good as hell at it. – [Nathan] Yup.
(laughter) – [Jacob] All right, Julia. – Yep.
– We’re on to yours. – [Julia] Yep. – [Nathan] Julia sounds so excited! – [Jacob] You don’t sound thrilled. – [Julia] We talked
about doing this episode, and I was like, “Oh, that
sounds like a fun idea,” and then I went back
to look at my old art, and I was like, “Oh,
right, I hate nothing more “than looking at my old art.” – [Nathan] See, here’s the thing, though. This is really cool.
– Yeah. – [Nathan] This is already really cool. – [Julia] Thank you,
I actually, I do still kind of like this piece, which I think is why I redid it, because the other ones that I looked at, I basically went home after work yesterday and had a crisis.
(others gasp) I hate looking at my old art so much. – [Karina] We are complete
opposites. (laughs) – [Julia] Yeah, nothing
throws me into a pit faster than that, but
I do like this piece. So I wanted to see if I could make some improvements on it. – [Nathan] I can’t wait to see. – [Julia] The thing with me and art, too, is I kind of just go,
“Oh, I like this style. “I’m just gonna do it.” So my art is so different year to year. Anatomically, it’s all
the steady improvement, but then one year I was only
working in Vector shapes. This year, I was trying
to do Vector shapes with Photoshop brushes. – [Nathan] Interesting. This year being the year
you drew this original? – [Julia] The year I drew that, yeah. – [Nathan] Okay, cool, cool cool. – [Julia] So this is
four or five years old. But yeah, I don’t know, I tried to do my current thing with it. Which I don’t know what
my current thing is, but we’ll see! – [Jacob] All right, well,
I’m gonna count it in, then. Three, two, one, go! – [Nathan] I’m gonna
say your current thing is being good at drawing– – Boom!
– Thank you – [Nathan] and I think
the commenters will agree. – [Jacob] Boom, roasted! (laughter) Got you!
– Got you! I really like the patterning in the… Like the textures you have, on the wood on the sword
and the fur on the wolf– – [Julia] Thanks, yeah, that was something I was definitely
exploring during the time, which was adding little textures. But now I”m trying to give it more of a… I’ve learned shape and anatomy
since this a little bit, so I tried to do a more dynamic angle and shape and focus a little bit more on the composition, maybe. – [Jacob] You did “Man with Box on Head.” (laughter) – [Julia] I did do “Man with Box on Head.” He’s Wayfair.com man.
(laughter) – [Jacob] He did the thing
where he took the beer box and put it on his head and he’s like, “I’m the beer wolf man.”
(laughter) – [Karina] Shout out to that guy. (laughter) – [Jacob] Everybody knows one. – [Nathan] One thing I really
love about this challenge is getting to see each of
our sketching techniques and how completely different they all are. – [Julia and Jacob] Yeah. – [Karina] I always love
watching Julia sketch because it’s so bonkers to look at. – [Jacob] It’s entirely…
look at these colors! What is happening?
(laughter) It’s like painful. – [Karina] And I mean that respectfully. – [Julia] Yeah, yeah, yeah. No, it’s like I try to figure out… I have a weird system. It’s like I try to figure
out the basic anatomy. So that’s that green one. And then whatever goes
on top that’s extraneous, like hair, or whatever they’re wearing, – [Jacob] Box. – [Julia] is usually in blue or purple, and then that always
gets a little crowded, so I’ll sometimes, if
it is a little crowded, I’l try to redraw it in a different color, just so I have a more
clear base to go off of, if I’m doing a sketch at all, which is not usually the case. But this time I decided to do a sketch. – Oh…
– Oh… – [Julia] I think this is
when Tristan baby showed up. Tristan baby definitely showed up at some point during this. – [Karina] Yeah, you were
gone for awhile at some point. – [Julia] Yeah, I was just
sitting with that baby for like half an hour talking to Tristan. – [Karina] So we’re gonna
get half an hour in here, of nothing.
(laughter) – [Nathan] Great, so we
get a direct comparison between what you were able to accomplish between Tristan baby showing up… (laughter) – [Jacob] Well, every time we
do this, it’s the same thing. Julia takes the same amount
of time to do something far more intricate. – [Nathan] And that’s okay. – [Jacob] That’s okay, – [Nathan] ‘Cause this isn’t about comparing myself to you guys, it’s about comparing myself to myself. – Yeah!
– Yeah! – [Jacob] That’s the best way to do it. – [Nathan] Yeah, I think so as well. – [Julia] This was me not
realizing how dog noses work, or wolf noses work, so I just
dew a weird, boxy triangle. I think I fix that later. – [Nathan] That’s kind of right. – [Jacob] Yeah, that’s
pretty much a dog nose. – [Julia] That’s kind of right, it’s just real big. – [Nathan] I love that this guy didn’t take the sword
out of the wolf head, he just put it on. – [Julia] No, he was like, “I did this.” Showing off. – [Nathan] Didn’t take
the teeth out, either, and he just has the teeth
sort of going into him, and he’s like, “This is fine.” – [Karina] It’s what keeps it in place. – [Julia] What’s happening here? – [Jacob] Maybe this was Tristan baby. – Maybe this was Tristan baby. – [Karina] This must’ve been baby. – [Julia] This must’ve been baby. – [Karina] Welcome to baby interlude. (laughter) – [Jacob] You didn’t cut
the baby segment from — – I definitely did!
– the video? – [Julia] I don’t know, okay, there we go. – [Jacob] Okay, we’re back. – And we’re back!
– Yeah, I woke up! (laughter) – [Nathan] Tristan’s baby is the true star of this episode. – [Jacob] Yeah, shout
outs to Tristan’s baby. – [Nathan] Tristan’s very good baby. – [Karina] And Kyle. – [Jacob] And my boy, Kyle. – And Kyle, yeah.
– Handsome Kyle. Hunky Kyle. – “Kyle and the Baby” coming to CW. – [Julia] So now you know
I’m on my final ink layer because it’s in red. – [Nathan] ‘Cause it’s in red. – [Julia] And I’m trying
to be a little looser with my lines on this one. – [Jacob] Yeah, I love the
line weight variation, already. – [Julia] Thanks. – [Jacob] It’s a really cool brush. – [Nathan] Chisel, is it a chisel? – [Julia] Yes, it’s my typical chisel. I love that chisel. It’s a lot of fun. – [Jacob] Helps you get
a little wet and wild. – [Julia] Yeah, a little bit. It forces me to not be
so picky with my lines and just kind of go at it. Or else I will just sit there, trying to make my lines look the same throughout the whole thing, which can look boring if done improperly. – [Jacob] Yeah, ’cause I love this cool, it’s almost like a shaky quality, that it gives to this wolf, that makes it look more wild. – [Julia] Yeah, I definitely
wanted to get some wild energy in there, some little fight-y, scrappy energy, I think. – [Nathan] And this is also reminding me of that comic you made recently. – [Julia] Yes, that is true. – [Nathan] Culling of Wolves? Or what was it? – [Julia] I think that’s
what it was called. I don’t remember anymore. – [Jacob] You made it. – Yeah.
– Um… I never look at my old art! – [Karina] Once it’s done– [Julia] Once it’s done– – [Karina] it’s gone
forever from Julia’s eyes. – [Julia] Leaves forever. – [Nathan] Still available for download, though, right, if people want to? – [Julia] It is, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, on my Gumroad.
– On your Gumroad. – I have two comics up on my Gumroad. – [Karina] Even if Julia
doesn’t look it, you should. – You still can!
– Yeah! So we’ll throw a link in
the description, how about? – Thanks!
– Will we? I feel like we never actually do that. We just talk a big game. – [Nathan] Well, what happens
is I look at the comments after the video gets posted, and then if people say something like, “Hey, where’s the link?”
then I’ll add it in to the description. So it gets there eventually. – That’s what’s important,
– Yeah. So it’ll get there eventually. If everybody comments that it’s not there, then I’ll see it.
– Unless it is there. – Well, they can still
comment that it’s not there as a fun prank on me, and I’ll be like, “What happened?” – [Jacob] Oh, you got me! (laughter) You made me scared for a second. – [Nathan] One of the cool things about getting our
suggestions from comments is I do read the comments. So thank you guys for
being mostly nice in there. Makes me feel good.
– Yeah! I read all of the Drawtectives ones, just in case I do a stupid. – [Jacob] We count on you
guys for when we do a stupid. – Yeah.
– Yeah. – [Jacob] Which, you
know it’s gonna happen. – [Nathan] You keep us honest. – [Julia] It happens. – [Nathan] I mean, that’s why we apologize at the end of every episode, is because we know we’ve
probably done a stupid. – It happens.
– It happens. People do stupids, we’re humans. – [Jacob] So now we’ve got
Julia’s coloring method. – [Nathan] Yeah, where
the lines are still red. – [Jacob] Yep, lines are still red. – [Nathan] And the colors come in, and then this cool thing happens where all the colors get
in and then the…yeah! – [Jacob] Oh, there it is! – [Julia] I actually decided to make them dark sooner. – (whispering) Yeah!
– Wow! – [Julia] For once. I usually wait until I get all
of my base colors in, but… – [Jacob] Man, your
original drawing was cool, but this so much cooler. Just like the angle, and the feel of it, and I love the line work
and the heavy blacks. – Yeah.
– Thanks. – [Jacob] It gives it a real
dark comic sort of feel. – [Julia] Yeah, I wanted to go a little dark fantasy with it. And you can see how I make some changes to some of the colors to kind of– Yep, that’s me, trying to… – [Everyone] Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! – [Nathan] That’s exactly what you said you did with layer styles. – [Julia] Yep, that’s what I do! – [Jacob] You just drop it down and see. – [Karina] Now it’s
back to the way it was. – Yep!
(laughter) Well, ’cause I realized that I didn’t like the tone of the shadows,
so I was trying to test it out with the blue, and then I just go in later
and change those colors. You’ll see they go bluish. They go purple-y. – [Jacob] Get a little
different tone to them? – [Julia] Yeah. – [Nathan] This is rad, I
love watching you guys draw. – [Julia] That was me, coloring it a color that was the exact same
color as the background. (laughter) – [Jacob] So no real way to tell on that. – [Julia] Nope, I kind of just hoped that I was filling it all in because I didn’t feel
like changing colors. – [Jacob] You also make
very good use of gradients in a way that doesn’t make it obvious that it’s a gradient in there. – [Julia] Thank you! – [Jacob] Like in that wolf shadow. – [Julia] Yep, there we go. – [Nathan and Karina] Oh! – [Julia] That’s me trying to… Now I’m… – [Everyone] Uh, uh! – [Julia] Yeah, there we go! – Oh!
– (softly) Yeah, look at that. – [Julia] That’s what
I landed on is this– – [Jacob] Oh, that’s cool! – [Julia] Fantasy purple. – [Nathan] Aw, that’s such a mood! – [Julia] Yeah, now he
looks a little bit more like, I don’t know, some
weird ranger-necromancer or something. – Yes!
– Yeah, totally! – [Julia] This woodsy necromancer. – [Nathan] There’s definitely more magic in this drawing now. – [Julia] With that purple-y tone. – [Nathan] Purple’s a cool way to make things seem more magical. – [Julia] Yeah. – [Nathan] Love this! – [Jacob] Yeah, I just keep looking from this to the original, and now it looks very flat, comparatively. – [Julia] I think that’s what
I was going for originally. – [Nathan] Yeah, it’s like a poster. – [Julia] And I did it, but… Just some basic things
were wrong in the original, so I wanted to see if I
could improve on those. – [Jacob] You definitely
improved the dopeness factor. – Yeah.
– Well, thank you. – [Jacob] By a large margin. – [Karina] Yeah! – [Jacob] Oh, and the
eyes are just yellow? – Yeah.
– Golden eyes? – [Julia] They’re gonna
be a little golden. This is a guy who’s
been through some stuff out in the magical wilds, for sure. – [Julia] This is me
trying to figure out– – [Jacob] Oh, cool! – [Julia] what I wanted to
do with the backgrounds but– – [Jacob] Oh, I kind of like that. – [Julia] Without doing
the awful backgrounds. (laughter) – [Jacob] It made up like
he had detected something. – [Julia] Ding! – [Nathan] Oh, is there
gonna be a little moon or a little circle? – [ Jacob] I do like the circle halo. – [Julia] Just a little design-y circle. I was going for a comic
book cover sort of deal. – Sure!
– (whispers) Nice! Like there would be space at the top for the title of the comic. – [Nathan] Yeah, yeah, yeah. – [Julia] Yeah, and then
I’m just adding some shadow to make the eyes
pop a little bit more. And I think that’s it. – [Jacob and Nathan] Awesome. – [Julia] I don’t know
why I decided to end it with it being zoomed so far away. – [Nathan] Well, Jacob fades in on you. – [Jacob] Right now, we’re
looking at the full one, close up, and everyone’s being like, – [Jacob and Karina] “Wow!” – [Karina] What a difference. – [Jacob] Checking out
all those hot deets. – [Karina] So big! (laughter) – [Jacob] Yeah, this is awesome! – This is really good.
– Way to go, Julia. – Thank you.
– It really does feel like a world of difference just
from four or five years ago. – [Julia] Four years ago, yeah. – [Jacob] ‘Cause that’s
not that long a time. – Nah.
– No. – [Jacob] But I feel like you’ve got down so much more stuff. Got a lot more tools in your belt. – [Nathan] That said, I do still really like the
original a lot, as well. – [Julia] Well, thank you. – [Jacob] I hate it now! (laughter) I only like the new one. – [Nathan] Only new ones ever. – [Julia] I do notice that
I just named my PSD “art2.” (laughter)
“art2.” – [Nathan] Well, but it’s
because you already had “art.” – [Julia] I already had the “art.” – [Nathan] You already had “art.PSD” open. – [Jacob] That was the first art you made. This was the second art you made. – [Julia] Yeah, great. – [Jacob] And some day
you’ll make a third art, I know you will! – [Julia] Yep, one of these days. – [Karina] It’s comin’. – [Nathan] I believe in you. – [Jacob] That’s it for this episode. Thanks, everyone, for watching. Thanks to all of you guys
for redrawing your old characters and drawings. – [Nathan] Thanks to our past
selves for drawing those. – [Everyone] Yeah! – [Jacob] I wouldn’t be here today if, nine years ago, I hadn’t
drawn that awful comic that’s (laughter) not funny and looks bad. – [Nathan] Yeah! – [Jacob] So you know it’s all part of it. – Yes!
– Yeah! – [Karina] Shout out to our past selves! – [Nathan] We did it! – [Julia] For stickin’ with it. – [Karina] And Kyle. – And especially Kyle.
– And Kyle and Tristan’s baby. – [Jacob] And Tristan’s baby. Uh, we’re sorry. – Sorry.
– Sorry. – Sorry!

Artists Draw Yu-Gi-Oh! Characters (They’ve Never Seen)

Artists Draw Yu-Gi-Oh! Characters (They’ve Never Seen)


– [Nathan] Welcome to Drawfee,
where we take dumb ideas, – [Karina] And make even dumber drawings! – [Nathan] I’m Nathan! – [Karina] I’m Karina! – [Jacob] I’m Jacob! – [Julia] I’m Julia! – [Nathan] And it’s time
to d-d-d-d-d-d-d-d-draw! – [Jacob] Was there like
cell interference there? – [Karina] It’s a Yu-Gi-Oh
reference, Jacob, you idiot. – [Jacob] Oh, Yu-Gi-Oh. – [Nathan] We’re doing Yu-Gi-Oh. We tried to do it once before,
but that episode got banished to the shadow realm. (laughing) – [Karina] Or in the
original, it just died. It was killed.
– Yugi killed it. – [Karina] By setting it on fire. – [Nathan] Horrifying. Karina, you are our
resident Yu-Gi-Oh expert. – [Karina] It’s me, I’m the
one forcing you to do this! Although a lot of people have
told me that now that I’m a host for realsies, I should
make more Yu-Gi-Oh episodes happen, so here we go, we’re
starting with this one. – [Nathan] Yeah, probably
months after we announced you were a host, but– – [Karina] And after we
tried to do it once before. Some very cursed content occurred. – Things are going great.
– That episode went to the shadow realm!
– She already made that joke, were you not listening? – [Karina] No. – [Julia] I thought it
was better punctuated by saying it again. (laughing) – [Nathan] This is going
great, this is definitely the better of the two episodes already. Karina, you’re gonna give us
Yu-Gi-Oh characters to draw – [Karina] Some real
obscure Yu-Gi-Oh characters, ones you’ve probably not
heard of, and you’re gonna draw them for me.
– We’re gonna draw ’em based on your descriptions of them. I wanna draw one of them
pointy anime boys, please. – [Karina] Well there is one thing wrong with that statement. – [Nathan] Is it a pointy anime girl? – [Karina] You got a pointy anime girl! – [Nathan] Yay! – [Karina] Your character, Nathan, is… I forgot her Japanese name, but what more do you need to know? – Cathy Catherine?
– I’m drawing Cathy? – [Jacob] Don’t draw Cathy,
I can’t see Cathy today. – [Julia] Wow, you just busted out that– – [Karina] You’re really
good at drawing Cathy. – [Jacob] Nathan, I’m gonna fucking flip. – [Karina] All you gotta do
now is make her Yu-Gi-Oh. – [Julia] I’m always so
amazed by Nathan’s ability to just recall anything on the spot. – [Jacob] But only like
the dumbest bullshit. – [Karina] Only Cathy. You forgot the sweats. – [Nathan] Oh yeah, that’s
right, yeah, there he is. (laughing) – But she’s so relatable.
– Very relatable. All right, Cathy Catherine. I’m gonna try and draw anime Cathy. – [Karina] Yeah, you can
start with Cathy as a base, but I will let you know
that Cathy Catherine is kind of just like one
of the side characters of Yu-Gi-Oh Zexal. – [Nathan] Zexal. – [Karina] Yeah, she’s
part of the friend group, and you like that? Yu-Gi-Oh Zexal? – [Nathan] Yu-Gi-Oh Zexal. – [Jacob] Can I just say it one time? Zexal.
– Zexal. – [Julia] I don’t wanna say
it in case I mess it up, and I say something that sounds naughty. – [Karina] That would be bad. Like Sexal? Yu-Gi-Oh Sexal? – [Jacob] Yu-Gi-Oh Sex Hole? – [Karina] I have told you
nothing about Cathy Catherine. – [Nathan] I don’t need to know anything– – [Karina] You need to know one thing. – [Nathan] So what’s Zexal about? – [Karina] What’s Zexal about? What a loaded question. Zexal is about a lot of things. – [Nathan] Are they still
playing duel monsters? – [Karina] Of course they are. It’s kind of like
Yu-Gi-Oh but space opera, and I watched all of
Yu-Gi-Oh Zexal in five days, and that was not enough
time to process everything that was presented to me.
– How many episodes is that? I dunno, like 140? – [Nathan] Jesus Christ! – [Karina] I was having a week. So Cathy, like I said, she does not play a huge major role I think. She is just kind of part
of the friend group, but I like her because she
is a Yu-Gi-Oh cat girl. – [Julia] (gasps) Catgirl! – [Jacob] Nya! Does she do that shit? – [Karina] She does! You know those like, girls
you meet at anime cons, and they really just like
the whole catgirl schtick? That’s Cathy. – [Jacob] You’re making
her so fierce, Nathan, but she’s just a Nya girl. – [Karina] Yeah, she’s kind of like shy, she’s kind of a loner. She’s just a little catgirl. Yeah, she has long gray
hair, but it’s styled. – [Nathan] Oh, describe the style, please. – [Karina] Imagine– – [Julia] Imagine, if you will. – [Karina] It’s long gray
hair, but it makes cat ears because Yu-Gi-Oh. – [Nathan] She’s like Archer Red in Fate Apocrypha.
– Nathan, shut up with that, we’re not on a Fate video,
and we never will be. – [Karina] And I will say one
more thing about her hair, her bangs are very long
and also very pointed, so it kind of comes down
like a little kitty nose. – [Julia] Like a Love Hina? – [Nathan] Does she
only have the cat ears, or does she have human ears too? – [Karina] No, she’s a
person, she’s not a cat girl, she just really likes cats. She plays a cat themed deck,
she has a bajillion cats, she can talk to cats, and she
makes them do things for her. – [Julia] She’d get along
well with our friend Ajani. – [Jacob] Ajani Goldmane! He is a cat. King of the cats, one might say. Much like our boy, Yugi,
is the King of Games. Right, Karina? – [Karina] Yeah. – [Jacob] Did I do good? – [Karina] Yeah, you
did it, you did a Yugi. – [Nathan] Is she like an Inuyasha? – [Karina] No, the ears
aren’t cat ears, they’re hair. They just look like cat ears. I wanted to present you a bit
of a challenge of making hair that is Yu-Gi-Oh hair, but cat ears. I wanted to see what you came up with. – [Julia] This is also
just like Princess Peach cosplaying as a kitty. – [Jacob] You’re right, it’s
Cat Peach from Super Mario Ultimate 3D Land. – [Nathan] What else, what else? – [Karina] So you
remember how I said she’s like a catgirl you’d meet at an anime con? That’s her outfit, she’s
wearing a little lolita dress, got a little bell and shit. – [Julia] Does she have
like one of those paws that goes over her hands? – [Karina] She does not, but
she does like to do the paws with her hands like nya. – [Julia] Got it. – [Jacob] You’ve gotta
make some nya hands. – [Karina] Yeah, you’ve
gotta do little nya hands, and I will say she does have glasses, because she’s a catgirl at an anime con. – [Julia] Oh does she
have cat eye glasses? – [Karina] I’m afraid she doesn’t, but that would be
– What the fuck!? – [Karina] Very on theme. – [Jacob] It was a perfect opportunity, and they squandered it. – [Julia] The one easily
translatable thing, and they decided like “Nah.” – [Karina] She just has bad eyesight. – [Julia] Eyesight is
not a gimmick, all right? – [Nathan] What’s a lolita dress? – [Karina] You know, it’s
got frilly puffy sleeves and stuff. – [Nathan] Her hands are coming up. Let’s get the hands on first. – [Jacob] Yeah, let’s see
a hands first approach. – Nya!
– Nya! You know, like nya! – [Julia] She looks like
in one of the bad animes where the morals are questionable, like one of the main
teen’s moms who is like just weirdly hot and sexual. – [Jacob] Yeah she does look
like one of those hot moms. – [Karina] I will say that
she is definitely not a mom. – [Julia] Is she like 14 or something? – [Karina] Yeah she is. – [Jacob] Maybe she’s a mom at heart. – [Karina] She’s a mom to all of her cats. – [Jacob] Yeah, you can be a cat mom. – [Karina] Cat moms are valid. – [Julia] Like the friend group moms. – [Karina] Yeah, I
dunno, she’s kinda feral. She’s a fun character. Because she’s just a little catgirl. (laughing) She’s just causing little mischiefs. – [Jacob] Little mischief
here, little mischief there. – [Karina] Acting like a cat. Bringing her cats everywhere. – [Julia] And trying to
make that cat mouth too, and I’m like “That’s
literally impossible.” – It’s pretty hard.
– You can’t do that. – [Nathan] Does she have two
tone hair like all Yu-Gi-Ohs? – [Karina] Not really, it’s
mostly just like gray hair, but there is some like sort
of two tone where the ears are because of how the hair is
layered, I’ll put it like that. – [Nathan] I’m just
gonna leave it like this. – [Karina] Yeah. – [Julia] She’s not sweating
enough to be Cathy from Cathy. – [Nathan] Oh yeah, hold on. (laughing) – [Jacob] She should be saying “Nyack!” No, Nathan, N-Y! In the Japanese style!
– You fool! – N-Y!
– N-Y! – [Julia] You fool! – [Karina] Like “Nya”! – [Julia] And also Nathan’s initials. – [Jacob] This is a Nathan Yaffe Ack. – [Nathan] Did I do it? – [Karina] Did you draw a Cathy? From the Sunday Funnies? – [Jacob] Cathy Catherine? – [Karina] Yeah, all
of her fun little cats. – [Jacob] That’s a good anime cat, Nathan. – [Nathan] Okay. – [Jacob] Nathan hates it. – [Julia] Nathan wants to move on. – [Nathan] This is a
screenshot from Cats 2019. – [Julia] All right, let’s look her up! – [Karina] There she is. – [Jacob] That’s pretty
much what you described. – [Karina] Yeah. I described her perfectly. – [Julia] Nathan did well! – [Jacob] I feel like pretty close. – [Julia] Actually really close. Good job, Nathan. (nyacking) – [Jacob] Let me do one now. – [Karina] Well, Jacob. – [Jacob] Yes? – [Karina] The last time we
tried to record this episode, you complained because I didn’t give you a Yu-Gi-Oh hair. I gave you a bald demon. – [Jacob] You gave me a bald
demon with a dragon for a dick. – [Karina] Well this time, I’ve heard you. Your character is… Paradox is a character from
5ds, but is most notable as the main antagonist of
the, I dunno, side movie, TV special, Bonds Beyond
Time, which is a cross-over time travel movie, and I love it so much. So Paradox is the main antagonist
from Bonds Beyond Time. – [Jacob] So Paradox is evil. – [Karina] He’s a bad guy. – [Nathan] Paradoxes are the villains of all time movies, right? Because time travel creates paradox. – [Karina] I’ll just
start you up on some shit. He’s very tall. – [Jacob] Very tall,
let’s get him up here. Here he is! – [Karina] There he is. He’s your Paradox. – [Nathan] Physician
comes and checks you out, that’s a Pair a Doc’s. – [Jacob] Nathan! Good joke! A pair of doc– Julia! – [Julia] Yeah. – [Jacob] Do you get it? – [Karina] Julia was not listening. – [Julia] Explain. Yeah I was listening, it was a good joke, I like pair a docs. – [Nathan] When you have
two Word Documents open– – [Jacob] Okay, you
have to stop now though. – [Karina] So let me
say this about Paradox, he’s got long blonde hair
down to about his waist. – [Jacob] Wow, okay. – [Karina] Very long. – [Julia] A little bit
of a Sepharoth going on. – [Karina] You’re gonna
need a little room, because he has a lot
going on, and I will say that his hair’s a little tall, so. Plan accordingly, please. – [Jacob] There’s not
enough space in the world. – [Nathan] His hair is
tall, and he is also tall. – [Karina] He has like some face markings, I don’t remember what they are, I’m sorry. – [Nathan] Is he a human man? – [Karina] He is a hu– Is he a human man? That’s a good question.
– Or is he some sort of– – [Karina] I think he
might be a clone, I dunno. Yeah, he has some markings
over his right eye, and one of them is kind
of like an eyebrow, in that it kind of goes
vwoop right off his face. (laughing) – [Julia] It’s a marking
that leaves your face. – [Karina] I dunno how
else to describe it. He’s got a lot going on, and I
hope this is what you wanted, because it only goes on from here. – [Nathan] Oh I like that. – [Jacob] That’s an eyebrow
that goes off the face. He doesn’t look very evil right now. I need to angle this down.
– He looks a little worried. – [Karina] I mean don’t worry, there’s still so much left to cover. – [Jacob] Angle this down a little more. And the evil “nya!” Sort of an evil look. – [Nathan] So he’s in
the show, but he’s also the villain of this movie? – [Karina] Yeah, full disclosure,
I haven’t finished 5ds, I’ve just been dragging
my ass forever on it. – [Jacob] Fake fan. – [Nathan] You finish Zexel in five days, but you couldn’t finish 5ds? – [Karina] So he is a
character from the show, but the main, I say
“crux of his character” kind of happens in this side movie just tangentially, I dunno. – [Nathan] Is he a
villain in the show also? – [Karina] I can’t answer that question. – [Nathan] Unbelievable. – [Karina] I’m sorry, I don’t
have all the Yu-Gi-Oh answers. There’s a lot of knowledge, and
I only have two brain cells. – [Jacob] What does his other eyebrow do? Does it also go off his head?
– It’s just kinda normal. It’s just kinda there, you know? – [Jacob] Okay this one’s normal. – [Karina] It’s because
the one on the right eye is like a fake face thing. I dunno, it’s just a marking on his face. – [Jacob] Should I fancy it up more? – [Karina] Whatever you feel like. It does go around, it
does go around and under, I will say that. – [Julia] I’m looking at a
picture of him right now. – [Karina] Julia was very curious. – [Julia] Do you want me
to describe the eye thing somewhat in a vibe?
– No, I’m sticking with this. Oh a vibe? Okay, give me a vibe. – [Julia] Picture, I’m
gonna say it’s the vibe adjacent to the first
Fast and Furious movie. – [Jacob] What? – [Julia] I’m getting some
like street car stripes vibe. – [Karina] Yeah, I can see that. – [Julia] It’s not racing
stripes, but it’s reminding me of like the early 2000’s
car culture design. – [Jacob] I’m sticking with this. – [Nathan] This looks great. – [Karina] Do what you feel. – [Nathan] I think, you know,
with these drawing characters ones, you’re already being
very generous with the physical descriptions, Karina. – [Karina] Yeah, we haven’t even gotten into the actual meat. This was a side note. – [Nathan] You’ve gotta keep it vague. I mean this is… – [Jacob] I mean I’ve already
got a real look going on here. – [Karina] So as I said, he
has very long blonde hair. – [Nathan] What kind
of a deck does he use? – [Karina] What kind of
a deck does he use… He plays Maleficent? Is that what it’s called? He stole a bunch of
main character’s dragons and made them evil, and I
think that’s what the archetype is called, but maybe I’m wrong. – [Nathan] Steal dragons
from, he’s a dragon thief. – [Karina] I will add in
since I see you going in for those bangs, he does have large bangs. – Large bangs?
– Yeah. As I said, he’s purple, he’s blonde. – [Jacob] He’s purple? – [Karina] The bangs are
purple, and they both frame his face, but also stick up in a way that looks like horns. – [Jacob] Wow. – [Julia] Yeah, he has the most
Yu-Gi-Oh hair I’ve ever seen in my life.
– You wanted hair, Jacob, so you got it now. – [Jacob] Yeah, you’re right,
you got me on this one. – [Karina] You made a big ol’ fuss, so I got you not even the worst one, not even the worst one from
5ds, but the one I’m most familiar with. – [Nathan] They’re hair horns. – [Jacob] I get that, Nathan. – [Karina] But don’t
forget, on top of the horns, they also kind of frame his
face in a way that’s just deeply unflattering. – [Jacob] On top of the horns? – [Karina] No, just the bangs. The bangs are all one
piece, and they’re purple. Just do what you think. – We’re gonna frame the face,
– I’m gonna leave it at that. – [Jacob] Like this, and
then this is gonna be hair. Hair horns. And then this frames the face as well. – [Julia] I think
something that’s important for you to remember, and
it’s something that I learned in the lost episode of
our Yu-Gi-Oh series, Yu-Gi-Oh hair, not really hair. – [Nathan] Oh it’s like a
bunch of construction paper someone stuck on top of their head. It’s pretty great. – [Karina] I see you’re
getting into the body. I’m so proud you’ve made it this far, we’re about half way done
with the description notes. – [Jacob] Yeah, I’m just trying
to get a really long torso, since I know you said he’s very tall. – [Karina] Yeah, you know
those Yu-Gi-Oh tall men, they’ve got long torsos. – [Jacob] You’ve gotta
have a long torso here. – [Karina] So I’m gonna give
you some clothing notes. – [Jacob] Yeah please,
right now he’s nude. – [Karina] He’s got big shoulder pads. Just huge metal shoulder pads. – [Nathan] He thinks he’s
in World of Warcraft? – [Karina] And when I say
‘big’, I’m gonna stop you for a second, I mean ‘tall’. – [Jacob] No! – [Julia] Everything
about this boy is tall! – [Karina] He’s just
a tall boy, I’m sorry. – [Jacob] Tall? – [Karina] He’s an
absolute mess of a design, and you asked for this. – [Jacob] We’re gonna go like this. – [Nathan] Oh I like that,
they’re like pretty fairy wings. – [Karina] Yeah, so he’s
got these real tall armory shoulder pads, and I’m
just gonna read my notes. “Outfit has two main sections,
top black with rib-like “design, and he has dark
jeans, BUT” in all caps, “white cape over legs only, like jacket.” – [Jacob] White cape over legs only? – [Karina] He has like,
you know when you tie a jacket around your waist,
and you think it’s like a little leg cape? He has that going on. – [Jacob] Yeah, this is metal,
these are metal pauldrons. I want two on this side. – [Karina] You’re taking
some artistic liberties. – [Jacob] I’m having fun. – [Karina] I’m glad. – [Jacob] I’m here for a good
time, not for a long time. So what did you say about his armor? It’s like a rib cage? – [Karina] He’s wearing
like a sleeveless top, and it has a rib-like
design on it is the best way I can put it. You know what, do whatever you want. – [Jacob] I mean I’m
doing a rib-like design. – [Julia] This is a
strong fashion statement. – [Nathan] His chest is that guy with that helmet from Dark Souls. – [Jacob] It is kind of like
that helmet from Dark Souls. You’re right, Nathan. – [Nathan] I remember because
I drew it on a mug one time. – [Jacob] You did,
Lautrec is the guy’s name. – [Julia] Toulouse? – [Jacob] No. – [Nathan] Touwin. – [Karina] You made a little crop top? Give him a cute little crop top? – [Jacob] I really want
the shirt to be black, and I have to finagle this situation. – [Nathan] Is 5ds the one where
they’re riding motorcycles? – [Karina] That is the one where
they’re riding motorcycles. – [Nathan] So does
everyone sort of have like a biker aesthetic in that one? – [Karina] Kinda. – [Nathan] That explains
the Fast and the Furious. Julia, you were right! – [Julia] I told you, early 2000’s like SoBe drink vibes/car culture. – [Karina] My remaining
notes on this character were “gloves up to shoulder, kinda BDSM.” – [Nathan] A lot of the
Yu-Gi-Oh designs are kinda BDSM. – [Karina] I’ll add to
that one I missed which is that he has about 2/3rds
of the cape on his back. – [Nathan] Yugi himself wears
like a belt around his neck. – [Julia] 2/3rds of a cape? – [Karina] I don’t know
how else to describe it. He’s got like the sides of a
cape, but not the back part, that’s what it looked like. He’s a design. – [Jacob] Glove goes
up to here, I’m saying, and it’s got a flared top in my design. – [Karina] I’ll let you wrap that up. I’m gonna tell you a little
about this character, because he’s kind of bemusing. – [Nathan] What’s his motivation? – [Karina] So he’s from the future. He’s from like way in the
future, and he travels back in time in order to
kill Maximillion Pegasus so that Duel Monsters is never invented. – [Jacob] Somebody needed to do it. – [Karina] And it’s
because far in the future, so much shit has happened because of all of the Yu-Gi-Oh things, like you know, there have been all of
these mystical problems, and wars and– – [Nathan] And it’s all
Duel Monster’s fault! – [Karina] It really is! (laughing) – [Jacob] That’s so wild. – [Karina] I think he’s like
the survivor of a genocide. Like I said, I didn’t finish watching 5ds, but that’s a thing that happens in 5ds. – [Nathan] It’s the plot
of Days of Future Past, but instead of getting rid of mutants, it’s getting rid of a card game? – [Karina] It’s getting
rid of Maximillion Pegasus. – [Jacob] Is Paradox not horny? – [Karina] He’s, I mean, he’s very ugly, but he does have a lot of horny energy. – [Jacob] Oh, I made a hot one. – [Julia] I am looking at
a reference image of him, and he has nipple piercings
that are on his shirt, but like none of where
his nipples would be. It’s insane. – [Karina] I missed that,
I was referencing, oh yeah. I was referencing him
with like his shit on. Hence the large shoulder pads. He does take his jacket
off at some point I guess. His cape, question mark? I dunno. – I’m not doing the cape.
– He’s got a lot of layers. – [Jacob] I’ve done enough here. – [Nathan] Let me see this– – You wanna see this boy?
– Lemme see this boy. – [Karina] Here he comes, ugly boy! – [Jacob] You know… – [Nathan] Karina, you’re
doing a good job describing. – [Julia] The hair is wild to me. – [Jacob] Now Karina, I
can’t help but notice here, he doesn’t have any pauldrons. – [Karina] That’s his
art with the jacket off. – [Jacob] Oh, jacket on! Big tall pauldrons. – [Karina] Yeah, huge, giant. – [Nathan] Are those just
knives coming out of his elbows? – [Karina] I mean, maybe. – [Jacob] He’s got knife elbows– – [Karina] He’s got a lot of moving parts. – [Jacob] I wasn’t that far off. – [Karina] You really weren’t. – [Jacob] The thing I
couldn’t have accounted for is the hair is not anything
anyone could’ve guessed. – [Nathan] You didn’t make the hair nearly ridiculous enough. – [Jacob] I’m done. – [Julia] All right, Karina. – [Karina] Okay, Julia, well,
I’m gonna cheat a little, and you’re gonna get three characters. – [Julia] What!? – [Karina] Who function
effectively as one, kind of. – [Nathan] Is it the Egyptian God cards? – [Karina] No. – [Jacob] Is it Slifer the Sky Dragon? – [Karina] That’s one of
the Egyptian God cards. No, Julia, yours are… – [Julia] Pajama Trio? – [Karina] Ojama Trio. – [Julia] Pajama Trio. (laughing) Okay, so we’ve got the pajama shirt. – [Jacob] You’ve got
the bananas in pajamas. – [Nathan] They’re coming down the stairs. – [Jacob] You’ve got Pajama Sam. – We got…
– They’re holding teddy bears. – [Karina] Wow, you’re really nailing it. – We got…
– The slippers. – [Julia] We got the slippies. – [Nathan] Julia, those
slippers are really good. – [Karina] These aren’t
Yu-Gi-Oh characters though! – [Julia] Okay, they’re
Yu-Gi-Oh characters, so hold on. (laughing) – [Karina] Julia, you’re
gonna have to draw these three little gremlins whether
you like it or not. – [Julia] No! – [Nathan] Draw the gremlins. – [Julia] So they’re little gremlins. – [Karina] Yeah, so the Ojama
trios are actually monsters who are characters in Yu-Gi-Oh GX. They’re three brothers,
they’re small little humanoids, so we can start with Ojama Yellow, the main of the Ojama Trio. He’s a little yellow man. He’s kinda got like this
dad bod thing going, where he’s kinda chubby, you know? And (laughing) – [Julia] Are these bad dudes? – [Karina] No, they’re
delightful, and I love them, and you’re gonna draw them for me. – [Nathan] Julia, please draw
a little yellow man for me. – [Karina] I would like
that very much, please. – [Nathan] It’s what we want. – [Jacob] I feel like you’ve really, you’ve done a switcheroo on me and Julia. – [Karina] Yeah, I think this
was the right thing to do. Well, let me put your
fears at ease right now. None of them have hair, and none of them are wearing clothes, but they are very human-like.
– You’re gonna have to draw some genitals, oops! (laughing) – [Karina] So Ojama
Yellow, he’s kinda like, he’s a little chubby. I will say his distinguishing features are his giant mouth, and his
giant lips, and his eyes, which are on eye stocks. – [Nathan] Eye stocks! – [Jacob] Yeah! – [Karina] He’s got like
a lot of snail energy, like if a snail were
your annoying neighbor, that’s Ojama Yellow.
– That sounds like a monster from One Punch Man. – [Jacob] Yeah, it really does. It reminds me of the
lobster, Crawblante, yeah. – [Karina] I will say
that they do have like kind of chibi proportions of
their head being quite large– – [Julia] How do you do chibi
proportions of eye stocks? – [Karina] No, like the whole
thing, his head’s real big, his body, which is very human– – [Nathan] He’s got a dad bod. – [Karina] Yeah, his little
dad bod is kinda small. – [Nathan] Don’t worry, Julia,
you only have to draw this and then two more characters. – [Karina] They’re not wearing clothes, they’re only wearing little underoos, little like bikini bottoms. – [Jacob] He’s so sad. Oh no, he doesn’t want to be here at all! – [Nathan] He has old man eyebrows. – [Karina] Why is he old? Because he’s my dad. – [Julia] You said he
had dad energy, right? – [Karina] I mean he has snail energy. – [Nathan] He’s got a human
body and big lips and teeth. – [Karina] Did I sign you up for too much? I’m sorry. – [Jacob] No, you signed
Julia up for my task. – Yeah, this is a Jacob task.
– I would’ve been done already – [Karina] You wanted big hair. – [Nathan] You got the
worst hair, you did it. – [Karina] So I gave you
really one of the ugliest boys. – [Jacob] This is definitely
a challenge episode, because you’ve given Julia
the little squat horrible men, and you’ve given me the big
beautiful ornate god character. – [Nathan] And you gave me a catgirl. (laughing) – [Jacob] You gave Nathan Cathy. Are these the lips? – [Karina] Just big ol’
mouth, big ol’ lips. Real toothy smile. Yeah, that’s a little Joker smile. – [Jacob] A toothy smile. So make sure to get a
lot of teeth in there. – [Karina] Teeth is hell. – [Jacob] Oh, you’ve drawn
the “Ahh! Real Monsters!”, what’s her name? There’s Ickus and Crumb,
Oblina or something? – [Nathan] Let’s say her name is Oblina. – [Jacob] I think it might be. – [Karina] It’s just
Oblina, but with a dad bod, and she’s yellow. I don’t wanna make this too complicated. – [Nathan] Except for
a little bikini bottom. – [Karina] That’s the only
other distinguishing thing, but he is very humanoid. He does have feet. – [Jacob] Oh, is it just
like the belly’s hanging over the underwear? – [Julia] Yeah. – [Jacob] It’s Oblina! (cheering)
I was right! – [Nathan] Jacob knew the thing! – [Jacob] Guys, I knew the thing! I said the right thing for once! Oh this feels great! Is this how you guys feel all the time? – [Julia] I’ve never said
anything right on this show. Does he have a nose? – [Karina] He really doesn’t, it’s more of a nostril situation, yeah. – [Jacob] You’ve got two more
of these, remember, Julia– – [Karina] Don’t be too precious about it. He does have feet. – [Jacob] He’s probably wearing socks. – [Karina] He’s not, but if
it makes you feel better, I like those. (giggling) – [Jacob] He’s wearing toe socks. – [Julia] Yeah, they’re gonna stop there. – Toeless socks.
– He’s having like a huge toe wedgie right now. – [Nathan] And sandals. – [Karina] He’s my dad! This is the new Ojama, Ojama dad. This is an archetype in the card game, I like playing Ojama decks sometimes, they’re really fun, and
there are different Ojamas. So the main ones are
yellow, green, and black, but there’s also Ojama Blue, Ojama Red, there’s a bunch of unnamed Ojamas, they live in Ojama Country. – [Jacob] Of course they do. – [Karina] They have Ojama parties. – [Nathan] Thanks, Ojama. – [Karina] So the next
Ojama brother (laughing) The next Ojama brother is Ojama Black. He is chubbier than Ojama Yellow. Unlike Ojama Yellow, and
his brother, Ojama Green, his distinguishing face
feature is his nose. It’s enormous, he’s got a big ol’ nose. He has very small eyes. Little beady eyes, (laughing) and he does have a bit of
a fang situation going on. The other two have very human teeth, but for some reason, he’s got fangs. – [Jacob] Julia, this is just cute! – [Karina] I like this! – [Nathan] This is like
a “My Ziggy Vampire” OC. – [Karina] It’s the
Sunday Funnies episode. – [Nathan] My Ziggy Vampire
AU where Ziggy is a vampire. – [Karina] And he’s also wearing nothing but little underoos. – And gloves.
– And also gloves. – [Karina] I love the
choice to give them gloves. I never said that. Well I’m gonna stop just
so you can move right along to Ojama Green. – [Nathan] What is happening
with his underwear? – [Jacob] Yeah, I can’t
decipher at all what’s going on with those. It’s just some… – [Nathan] It looks
like just some strings. – [Julia] Yeah, that’s it. – [Jacob] You just said ‘yeah’,
but that doesn’t answer. This isn’t helping. This is helping. Get rid of that big hole. – [Karina] They’re being stretched out around his stick legs. – [Julia] It looks like he
has like a butt saddle now to keep everything up a little bit. – [Karina] That’s really
all it’s there for. We do not get to see
what’s under the underoos. – [Julia] Do you want… – [Jacob] No, what’s the third one? Please stop. – [Karina] So the third
one is Ojama Green, and I’m just gonna read you my notes. “One eye, big mouth and
tongue, incredibly muscular.” – [Julia] One eye… – [Karina] He has kind
of a weird shaped head. – [Nathan] Ojama Green’s the
bro of the Ojama brothers. – [Karina] So as I was
saying, in the show, we got Chaz, he’s like the
designated rival of the series, because each Yu-Gi-Oh series has a rival, but he’s kind of the
most comedy relief rival of arguably the entire franchise, and so his whole thing
is that he starts seeing duel spirits, and it’s these ones. These are the ones he’s stuck with, and he is not happy about it at all, but he can’t get rid of them. They’re just there forever. – Do they talk?
– Yeah, they do talk. – [Nathan] Great. – [Karina] Isn’t that great? In the dub, they kind of
sound like The Three Stooges. – [Jacob] Oh good. – [Nathan] Yuk yuk yuk. – [Karina] Yeah, I think
Ojama Black is that one. Which one is that again, Curly? Yeah, Ojama Black is Curly. – [Nathan] He’s got a
big eye on his tongue! – [Karina] Interesting. – [Nathan] You said one
eye, big mouth and tongue, very muscular. – [Karina] You know what, let her. (laughing) – [Jacob] The human-ness of this mouth is really unappealing. – [Karina] He’s like cylindrical. Remember, it also has to
be incredibly muscular. – [Nathan] Oh, Julia remembered. – [Jacob] Here she comes with the muscles. – [Karina] Perfect, thank you. – [Nathan] If ever Julia
would remember something, it’s to draw muscles. So we’ve got these two
sort of lovable characters, and then their brother, Ojama Green, who is a creature of pure nightmare. – [Karina] His mouth is always
open, or else he can’t see. – [Nathan] Everything tastes like my eye! – [Jacob] He could bite
down on his own eye if he fucked up. – [Karina] Yeah, like how
you bite your own lip. – [Nathan] Yeah, which
is already so painful. – [Jacob] Thank you, those
are Jacob-style nipples! – [Julia] I really had to lean in, after the dad character,
I decided I had to go big shapes, which is a Jacob strat. – [Karina] I mean to like, not to go back and say you did it
incorrectly, but the other two do have a bit of like, body, moobs, I don’t think they have nipples, no one in Yu-Gi-Oh has
nipples really, but. Yeah. – [Jacob] Don’t do it. Don’t do it. Don’t do it! You’ve done it. – [Nathan] Now you’ve done it. – [Jacob] Oh yeah, let’s go lower. You are the Jacob of this episode. – [Nathan] Julia, you
made that drawing rude. Julia don’t make this a rude episode. Up until this point, I think
I was still a little sad that we lost the original
one we did of this, but now– – [Jacob] I’m very sad. (laughing) – [Nathan] Goddammit, Julia. – [Julia] I’m back, baby! – [Jacob] Back from where? – [Karina] Where’d you go? – [Jacob] Oh is that a butt? What in the world? – [Karina] Julia… (laughing) That is where I draw the
line, that is grotesque. – [Nathan] Everything
about him is so tight, and he just has this real saggy– – [Karina] I wasn’t
gonna say anything about his giant you-know-what in his undies. – [Julia] Because I was
still trying to figure out how the legs were gonna work. – [Karina] So I just made it really big. – [Nathan] Ojama Green fucks. – [Jacob] I think we can all agree. I don’t recall Karina
specifying that he just had like an enormous hog that threatens all the other little monsters. – [Karina] I like how
he’s on a different plane than the other two. – [Jacob] He is, he’s like closer to us, but also further away. – [Karina] The ground’s sunk a little. – [Julia] Do you want me
to move down the other two? – [Jacob] You have to move him up. – [Julia] I can’t! – [Karina] You can’t
move a force of nature. – [Nathan] He’s immovable. – [Jacob] He’s too heavy to lift! – [Nathan] There he goes! – [Jacob] Let’s put him on the same plane. – [Nathan] Yeah, there they all are. – [Karina] See? I knew
it would be a good idea to give this one to Julia. – [Julia] I think the boys
would like to disagree with you on that idea. – [Jacob] You did great. – [Karina] Well, I’m
hosting and they’re not. – [Julia] There we go. – [Jacob] I’m pulling them up for you. – [Nathan] Do give him armpit hair, good. – [Jacob] Here you go, Julia. – [Karina] You did it! – [Julia] You know, not super far off with the last one there. – [Karina] Green? – [Julia] Yeah. – [Jacob] You did kind of give
him a real thick strong bod with the eye on the tongue. – [Karina] Yeah, that
was a bit of a choice. – [Julia] Yeah, I just
messed up the strong face. He has like literally a strong face. – [Jacob] He’s not just a
screaming hole with an eye tongue. – [Julia] I can’t wait
to render this later, and just regret
everything, and think about my career as an artist, and if this is it. – [Karina] Well, I for one am
truly appreciative and happy about you drawing some of
my favorite characters. – Good god.
– What a day. – [Nathan] This drawing
destroyed all of my life points. – [Karina] Nathan found
dead in the shower. – [Jacob] We all deserve
some time in the shadow realm I think for this one. – [Karina] All right everyone, get in. – [Nathan] Thank you so
much for watching, everyone. Be sure to check us out
on Twitch as well as subscribing to this channel
if you like the stuff we do. We’re on so many platforms. Go to all of them, they’re
all in the description. Right now at once. We’re sorry. – [Jacob] I’m sorry. – [Karina] I guess I’m sorry. – [Julia] Sorry! (laughing) I’m sorry! That’s the last dude I drew. – [Nathan] That’s what the, yeah. – [Julia] Sorry!

Three Artists Try Drawing Pokémon from Memory

Three Artists Try Drawing Pokémon from Memory


CollegeHumor Presents: Poorly Drawn Digimon So the way this is gonna work. Jake will give us all a Pokemon and we’re gonna have to do our best and try to draw it from our memory. Uhhh… Or if you can’t even remember it, just our best to draw what we think it could even be I have a great start ’cause I don’t have the ability to remember anything ’cause I never started (laughing). Wow. Memory versus imagination; it’s the ultimate drawing battle (laughing) Alright. Caldwell kicking us off for the initial Pokemon challenge, I want you to draw….. Fearow ok ok that’s a classic gin 100 is is
definitely a bird that’s it that’s a baccano character so
Julia I’m actually curious so you did grow up in the prime of the pokemon
yugioh collectible Japanese franchise height that was the early two thousands
absolutely thats related I played pokemon red and blue when it
was out and then things got too complicated and I never looked back honestly on the team that plays pokemon
for me and keeps me updated so many adults that wish they had done
the same thing so you’re already i call those making
some basic mistake yes he is sick I get it yeah I got it gyro is is a bird
is on I think you’re mispronouncing a jig and
it gets fire oh it’s alright you’re 0 the dragon 15 years and it’s a bird
that’s on fire right I get back to that flute it’s just a bird just like nitrous yeah
you know it’s not mulch as it’s a pyro its fire oh but if you think about it
it’s a fire sparrow uh-huh that’s that’s about as good as
any other Pokemon name yeah ultra school and impressive because
he wants to be on fire yeah enviro does not like being fired
and he cries for his pre rotisserie flesh in the playground universe shrink up to this fact yeah oh my god cooked ready to eat but still
alive meet well I don’t you if if you don’t mind
I’ll let me let me finish up here already we’re all Donald’s let me go
ahead and draw a kairos evolution because I i remember my memories on .
today so i actually remember what what my room looks like when he evolved haha look at that delicious butter ball uh-huh there is anything that is
actually it’s the only evolution where all of the stats go down if you have to
have that so what’s the what’s the evolved form of
fire Oh called they evolved from a fire yet is a base toys yeah i’m looking up with we’re not gonna
be able to top that hat all right ah yeah okay I remember spero on wire
his interest here oh good so you drew ok oh I feel like I remember a little
better yet you okay bureau with long with long just I
craziest beak in the whole yeah they just they just took their just like what
if what if but long you know yeah that the character designer just
walked by the desk was like you stretch that bird right out for us how do i evolved it uh did you try
making the hair bigger yeah we did that a on the the last one ok just stretch it
just put cannons growing out of its spine like no you can only do that once
all right yeah now now i really want to i want to draw
one I was pretty close with spirit to be honest but I guess I wasn’t close at all
because that’s not who I was drawing but the maury the designer of pokemon would
be ashamed of you it’s true now Nathan yes mistake going
into this this challenge was I believe repeatedly
boasting about how much you know about pokemon uh did I do that I thought I thought I said I just puffed
suspender up licking with your thumb I did wear my I didn’t wear my pokemon
suspenders today that’s true were Fanning yourself with a I’m a pack of
oil charges on this I i remember that impromptu poker rap
you dropped during lunch yeah you ran out of breath so quickly
yeah so Nathan your first pokemon is
miraculous no no they’re back there must be some
mistake number of 556 miraculous no you don’t understand i’m i’m a
Pokemon master want to over 700 of these idiots so ok miraculous you are no rank what
generation is that I think fifth and Jay can you use it in a sentence you use the
place what what’s the country of origin japan ok so an actual question that
makes sense miraculous all right that’s not that
Jesus Christ set the game player I forgot miraculous even existed yeah so
it’s a cactus i’m assuming definitely a candidate but
it’s like a miraculous cactus it away so it’s like it’s like it’s like a
cactus wizard I did say I was going to say like a
spiny Jesus with that boy like that to look at first of all having these band
are technically Jesus is thorny so let’s not Oh what that’s not controverted oh yeah
good reference and I’m just mad because it’s kind of a cliché pole you get that so here we got a you get a state we got
cactus got cactus wizard going still already just deeply wrong yeah uh that I looked at it but yeah
that could be a Pokemon – yeah well I do like I do like the Jesus angle because I
ok Jesus was kind of a wizard raises the world’s first wizard yeah that’s why uh that’s why the they
get so angry about harry potter because they’re afraid there will be a wizard
more popular than Jesus hmm do you think that at Hogwarts like
the kids because they don’t they probably don’t talk about a leg in class
but you know at lunch there like so Jesus right he’s better than everyone else is like
yeah right you can can you give me can you give me the the type what type
of pokemon practices I mean I believe it is the grass ok I don’t make me without bulbapedia
yeah Tom and then you have to just sort of
give it like a dinosaur yet portion yeah be a pokemon that’s a good tip um and yet he’s just he’s just like how
cast some spells is AP or grass well this one this one’s got some like
magical energy so maybe this is like some grass energy coming off a bit rats
energy and I think he’s got like a little bit of an over buddy ok you’ll probably according to boba p
do you probably recognize it best from the episode of the anime team plasma’s
pokemon power plot alright so this is this is more practice
and I’m actually i’m standing next to it this is this is to scale msu being proud of ya I’m your pilot I’m
so proud of how I’m like I knew this one that you give me a hard one next time I got it it’s like trainer nathan wants
to fight but nobody wants to fight you tooth and no idea what they wanted that
is yeah ya did it hey kid five feet fighting in my real
pokemon i definitely real my name on this is not my friend dead already and wants to fight o Mara I was imagining mirror I think if
Ludicolo needed a love interest in his like crappy solo movie that would be
more active well there you go that well now the moment of truth Julia the one we
who really really really already really well here’s the thing you’ve already
seen what we’ve done so like at least you were honest from the beginning
Caldwell and I were posturing all day and night is true I day and I i did you know how like arya
stark says all the peoples names that she wants to kill I go to bed and I just like trying to

look like you would fit in and in the Pokemon universe as your rights SuperCoach be who you I’d mullet fan
julia wants to fight good that’s I’m ashamed about how much I
already look like one of those like weird old biker guys oh yeah back for sure how your weekend
going out in real life you get a you could well you could go to like a comic
convention dressed as hiker and and I guess clean up I don’t know like it I guess get people to take pictures of
you does that sound appeasing i mean i can i can definitely get my way into
like a weird sex party in a hotel room with other sure be people which had a
goal of every , can IC arms , when you said a clean up I imagine he just got a job as a janitor
there with that but he’s dressed just like hey don’t do it for your soda
bottles on the ground please janitor Jake wants to fight me or hold a
conversation or didn’t have any human contact all right oh yes please get me where I
Julia I your first Pokemon I’m tossing you a real soft ball with
this one feel feel that she can see the face i
just gave you yeah it’s it’s pretty close to the one you’re making in your
dry good that’s a real thats a m3 right I think it’s I think it’s jen one even
know seals general oh yes the lease and
original medial and dugong feel they had to wait a generation in between just be
like hey we’re just going to do it again ok you interesting already already
wearing the clean geometric linework julia is known for ya when did this turn into iron chef I
don’t know what does that mean yeah kelis on iron pokemon julia is using her
classic geometrical designs and claims that she doesn’t even know anything
about pokemon and hands work ok and then like this Pokemon has hands yeah we’re off to a great start and
maybe hit back after this is just a this is just a minute oh you’re drawing your
drawing the the artist seal no it should have a artist seal used
kiss from a rule this is that it’s super catchy oh ok ok Caldwell from a cross-country I’m asking
you this question I bring in a lyric baby I compare you to
a kiss from a rose finish what it was the rest that line on a grave right no wet really yeah I could’ve sworn it was super morbid
what is it what is the leg actually it’s actually on the gray which is just
terrible and weird and bad kiss from a rose on the gray literally you’re a pure
a bright Pete you’re like a bright piece of color and and life in an otherwise
great environment are not sure he’s not referring to the Liam Neeson movie I yeah is in their way is not only in
mesa movie we’re gonna have a great yeah it’s a
it’s taken but with Wolves yeah so I think what seal-like eliminate

High vs Low. How CAMERA elevation can influence a WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHY image. The Chobe River.

High vs Low. How CAMERA elevation can influence a WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHY image. The Chobe River.


Hi! I am Janine from Pangolin Photo Safaris. I am on the Chobe River with you today. I want to see, together with you,
how low can we go? Have a look at what difference it makes to just change your angle a few feet. We are going to start off from our swivelling chair shooting this hippo lying low in the water. He has a gorgeous grey heron sitting on his back. I am going to increase my f-stop to f/8.0,
just to make sure that when I focus, either on the bird, or the hippo, that
both are going to be in focus. I am also going to underexpose just a little bit to make sure I don’t get any get any highlight alerts on the grey heron. If the hippo turns out a little bit dark, I can easily pull the shadows back in
post-production editing. So, let’s have a look from the chair. Nice! The hippo looks a little bit dark, but at least I didn’t blow out my bird. I am going to tighten my gimbal, take my camera, and get all the way down to the ground…. …and do some camera yoga!! And see what difference this makes? You will see my horizon often slides
even further into the background, and my foreground gives me a really beautiful shallow depth of field. This is as upfront and personal as I can get with this hippo. Let’s have a look how it looks from standing all the way up high. I can even stand on the nose of the boat and see how high I can go. This is more of a spectator angle. I don’t change any of my settings. I only change my location. You guys tell me which one of the three
angles you like the best? Leave me a comment down below. I would like to hear from you. Have a look, when you shoot wildlife, what works best for you. Don’t forget to subscribe. If you enjoyed this video, press the bell

Artist Samantha Kallis talks about being a Visual Development Artist | Art Attack

Artist Samantha Kallis talks about being a Visual Development Artist | Art Attack


-My name is Samantha Kallis and I’m a Visual
Development Artist. A Visual Development Artist
will design anything from characters,
props, textures, background paintings, pretty much anything
that shows up on-screen, somebody designed. Today, I chose the theme
of “Adventure.” I chose “Adventure”
because, to me, it’s important
to live your life adventurously but also be adventurous
in your art. As an artist,
if you’re not adventurous and you don’t take chances, then you end up just drawing
the same old, tired thing that you’re comfortable with,
and you never do anything new. You never grow. I guess the big adventure
for me the last couple months has been getting to work at Sony
and working at Nickelodeon, and actually
getting my hands dirty with animated television shows
and features. Learning from professionals
who I really admire — that’s been
the big adventure for me. I think the one thing
that I really learned in the course
of my own adventure is that you really have
to think of yourself — Even though I’m an artist,
I have to think of myself, in a way, as a writer. Everything I do is storytelling, and everything that I create has
to go back to that story and make sure
I’m strengthening that story. Some of the ways that I manage to always
keep story in mind when I’m drawing
is that I have to think about — “Am I making this just
to make a pretty picture, or am I making it
because it goes back to a point that will say something about
that character or that event?” For example, why is this character
wearing a tattered coat instead of a fancy coat? It has to say something about
who he is, or, you know, where he’s been. I think for me,
the narrative of the piece that I created today, I mean, obviously, ships and adventure and going on a journey
someplace… My mom always likes
to tell me — Whenever I’m getting down about
not moving forward in my life, she always likes to say that, “You have to do something,
anything, to shake up the universe.” So I think making a big move
or a little move, just something
to get you out there. And that’s kind of what
this ship going through this strange,
alien landscape means to me, like, they’re shaking up
their universe by maybe exploring a new one. From there,
it really just evolved into “What kind
of landscape is this?” and “Where are they going?”
And I thought, “Yeah, I really want to put
two moons in here and make it about aliens.” Okay, step by step,
the process of what we saw today is sort of the initial spark
of the idea, and I have my reference photos. Then I just sort of, like —
for this particular piece — just went at it sketching
and putting in the big shapes so that I had sort of
a backdrop for my ideas. And you notice the shapes change
pretty dramatically over the course of the painting,
because, you know, just compositionally,
I’m always thinking about it. And you start painting it up, you start putting
some texture on. I have a library
of watercolor textures and washes that I’ve created
and scanned into the computer. Those I use on multiple layers
at different opacities or different layer modes to sort of give the painting
a hand-drawn or touched-by-human-beings
feeling, because sometimes
digital paintings can get a little cold. I use a lot of Photoshop tricks, but then, you can
also see the actual, more traditional-style painting
as I get closer in with, like, the detailed objects
of the ship. So, I suppose my process
is a lot of trial and error and a lot of not being afraid
to go back a couple steps and see if something else works
and move things around. The reason why I definitely
like working digitally rather than
with traditional paint is the “undo” function
and the ability to change what I don’t like in my work
really easily. I think, also,
in terms of work, it’s so much faster. I don’t have to sit around and literally wait
for paint to dry. I can just paint it and go. I would say that in terms
of what I want to paint before I start —
For this instance, it was literally the idea
of, like, “I really want to draw a ship,” so I started looking at ships
and came across one that I wanted to sort of
integrate into a painting. I think the reason why
adventure’s important to me is because
the life that you live informs the art that you make, and if you live a life
that doesn’t have any adventure or doesn’t have
anything new in it, then you’re not gonna have
any material in your sort of mental library
to draw from when you want to sit down
and make something. So I think
you have to get out there and you have to live
in order to make art.

Artists Draw My Hero Academia Characters in Different Styles

Artists Draw My Hero Academia Characters in Different Styles


– [Jacob] Welcome to Drawfee
where we take your dumb ideas– – [Julia] And make even dumber drawings. – [Jacob] I’m Jacob.
(whoosh) – [Julia] I’m Julia.
(whoosh) – [Karina] And I’m Karina.
(whoosh) – [Jacob] And guys, we’re back again for a sweet sweet Nuesday and
this Nuesday is plus ultra. I’ve sprinkled in a
little extra ultra on top, it does cost 99 cents extra. – [Julia] I completely forgot that we were doing “My Hero” characters. – [Jacob] You literally
just did this drawing. – [Julia] I know, but I lost
all context half way through and you’ll see why. – [Karina] Yeah, I kinda
blacked out during my drawing. It just kinda became
its own thing, you know? – [Jacob] Great, so it
seems like everyone’s had an awesome time. – [Karina] Excited to be here.
(Julia groans) – [Jacob] We’re doing “My
Hero Academia” characters in different styles. I’m gonna do mine first
since I’m the only one with the Drawfee brain cell today. I have the brain cell for now. – [Karina] Don’t lose it this time. – [Jacob] I’ll try not to lose it. – [Julia] Did you have
a good time with yours? – [Jacob] I did, I
actually am really happy with how mine came out.
– [Julia] Nice, what’d you do? – [Jacob] I did Todoroki, everyone’s favorite
half-hot half-cold boy. (Julia singing “Hot and
Cold” by Katy Perry) – [Jacob] Yep, that song’s about Todoroki. – [Karina] Just about Todoroki, yeah. – [Jacob] And I did in the
style of a Pokemon trainer. Like one from the anime. Sort of an Ash style. – [Karina] Is it new anime
or the old-school one? – [Julia] Yeah that’s a
distinction you need to make. – [Jacob] I did the,
well it’s kinda somewhere in between I think. It’s probably leans more
towards the old school. But yeah, so I’m gonna
go ahead and get started. I’ll count myself in. Three two one, go! So, straight off the bat as always, I have to test out some poses that I hate. But I get to this one
faster than I get to most. ‘Cause I’m actually already on the pose that I end up sticking with. – [Julia] I like that you
draw torsos in your sketches like they’re a piece of toast. – [Jacob] Yeah, well that’s–
– [Julia] They’re kind of like a slice of toast. – [Jacob] That’s kinda what torsos are. – [Julia] A little bit. – [Karina] Torsos are
– [Jacob] They’re toast shaped – [Karina] Just bread, yeah.
– [Jacob] yeah. – [Karina] Artist trick. – [Julia] Mine certainly is just bread. – [Jacob] I tried to work
in the UA jacket design, but in sort of an Ash
short-sleeved collared shirt look. And everyone in Pokemon
has these big baggy pants and big old chonky shoes. So I did that too and then
I changed Todoroki’s hair to be more in the Pokemon style. The eyes I had to change ’cause
they looked like Ash’s eyes but didn’t look like
Todoroki’s eyes at all. So I switched them to kinda this form which was something in between. – [Julia] Yeah, Todoroki’s
a little moodier than our boy Ash. – [Jacob] Yeah, he’s a little moodier. And I was already really
happy with the sketch. I feel like it looks pretty Pokemon-y. And it looks like Todoroki. And I was like,
– [Karina] Here comes Grimace. – [Julia] Ooh a friend. – [Jacob] He needs to
have some Pokemon in it. And, not Grimace. And so this is when I realized that the Pokemon Emboar
is literally Endeavor – [Julia] Oh it’s his dad.
– [Jacob] as a Pokemon. – [Julia] Emboar is Todoroki’s dad. – [Jacob] Yeah, Todoroki’s
dad in the anime, Endeavor, has a big flaming mustache
and stuff and so does Emboar. He’s got this flaming beard situation. He looks angry just like Endeavor does. And so I figured Emboar would
be a good first one to do. Todoroki has a notoriously
complicated relationship with his father and his mother, which is what I decided to go for for the ice Pokemon that I used which I’ll be getting to
here in just a second. Also, I’d like to point out that I did most of this
without zooming at all and I hope everyone’s very proud of me. – [Julia] Yeah, that’s impressive. – [Karina] That’s something
we should’ve been doing? – [Jacob] No,
– [Karina] Okay good. – [Jacob] I just zoom a lot and sometimes when it gets
sped up it looks wild. It’s zooming in and out so much.
– [Julia] Mine’s gonna be wild.
– [Karina] I’m excited to see mine (laughs) sped up. – [Julia] Let’s see if our
are comprehensible whatsoever. – [Jacob] For the ice
Pokemon, I went with Froslass, which Julia, you actually
drew in a Pokemon episode. It was the ice woman, the ice ghost woman you drew.
– [Julia] Oh yeah. Yeah yeah yeah.
– [Jacob] This is the actual Pokemon of that ’cause Todoroki’s mom is kind of – [Julia] A very sad lady?
– [Jacob] A very sad character and she’s sort of abused
and I decided to save now. – [Julia] That’s good, yeah.
– [Karina] That’s smart. – [Julia] Save right there. – [Jacob] So I decided
to go with Froslass. That kinda represented his
whole family and his duality. You know what I’m saying,
you know what I’m getting at? – [Julia] Yeah man. – [Jacob] Then I guess I just
sort of sat here for a while. (Karina laughs)
– [Julia] You probably ordered lunch during that time. – [Jacob] Probably.
(laughter) And then I got to the inking. I was trying to use sort of like a thin, I used Kyle’s ink box ballpoint pen brush so it’s a little thinner, has
a little bit of texture to it. – [Julia] And it has that roundness that I associate with
the lines in Pokemon. – [Jacob] Yeah, totally. I thought it kinda fit the brief. This was me checking to make sure I actually went thin enough on the lines ’cause I have a problem with (Karina laughs)
– [Julia] Getting some chonky lines.
– [Jacob] Thinking I’m going too thin or thin enough and then it ends up being real chonk. So yeah, the inking was a
pretty straightforward segment. I always do a think when I’m drawing where I really put most of
the detail into the sketch. And then for the inking
I just kinda black out. I just kinda space out. – [Karina] I think that’s, fun. (laughs) – [Julia] It’s like the
therapeutic part of it. – [Jacob] Yeah, it’s how I like to draw but it’s objectively more time consuming. I know a lot of artists that
will do a really rough sketch and then just jump straight to inks. – [Julia] Oh, the sketch is therapeutic. I thought you were saying
the inking was therapeutic. – [Jacob] The inking
for me is therapeutic. – [Julia] Well good for you. – [Jacob] Inking’s my
favorite part of drawing which is why I like to put
so much into the sketch so that the inking can
be a sort of mindless. – [Karina] I do the
basically minimal sketch and figure out all the details when I ink. Not for these videos, but usually if I draw in my usual style because I know my own style better, I have a very rough sketch. It’s basically just a composition sketch. – [Jacob] Yeah it changes for me if I’m doing time-sensitive work for work. Back when I was doing a lot of comics I had to sort of change my
work flow to get done in time. But if I have my own choice and I’m drawing for my own enjoyment then I always like to spend
a lot of time on the sketch. – [Julia] For my own
enjoyment I never ink. (Karina and Jacob laugh) I only ink for work, honestly. (laughs) – [Jacob] Karina’s method, just don’t. Just don’t ink.
– [Julia] Just don’t. If it looks lik I’ve inked something it’s actually just a very
small sketch-like brush. It’s very thin pencil brush. (laughs) – [Karina] That’s interesting. – [Jacob] Sometimes I wish
I could do that but I can’t. I just can’t do that, I don’t know why. I have to work this way. – [Julia] I wish I could ink like you, ’cause you do it very well
and you seem to enjoy it. – [Jacob] I think I just do it well because–
– [Julia] Can’t relate. Wish I could. – [Jacob] I do it well because I like it. And so I like to really– – [Karina] If you like it
you’re gonna spend time on it. – [Jacob] Yeah I spend more
time on it since I enjoy it. – [Julia] Those shoes were
giving me some slight DBZ vibes and I’ve never noticed that the Pokemon shoes
do kind of look DBZ-ish. – [Jacob] Yeah, they’re
kinda these chunky boots a lot of the time. Like the chukny tennis shoes. – [Julia] No laces, just these
straps like elastic bands. – [Karina] No one in the
Pokemon universe knows how to tie shoes. – [Jacob] I remembered here that I didn’t, I forgot to include those head things in the sketch on Froslass so I just had to do them at that point. Thankfully I remembered,
’cause I would’ve got razzed. (Karina laughs)
– [Julia] Yeah you would’ve. – [Jacob] If I had not included it. This one took me a little
bit longer as a whole. I think just ’cause there were
three figures I had to draw. – [Julia] That’s true, you did give yourself three
characters to try to draw. – [Jacob] And I always forget that that makes it take more time. – [Julia] Yeah, go figure.
– [Karina] Putting more things in the drawing? – [Jacob] Yeah, ’cause this one took me close to three hours I think to do. And it’s not a complicated drawing at all. It’s a pretty simple style
and it wasn’t very hard for me to conceive of what
I wanted to do with it so I was surprised it took that long. I was like, “I guess it’s “’cause I had to draw
three full-size characters “with their own.” – [Julia] Three tails.
– [Karina] That had a lot of big shapes. – [Jacob] You wanna get
all that stuff right. – [Karina] Big shapes that
have a lot of weird angles to them like Emboar’s
whole fire collar thing. – [Jacob] And I was doing
a fun trick on myself where in the official art, Emboar is facing the other direction and I didn’t flip my reference, I was just doing it from brain. I was brain-flipping while I worked so that made it fun too,
to really just struggle. Struggle through that when
I could’ve made it very easy and I chose not to. ‘Cause that’s how I live. – [Julia] You done played yourself. – [Jacob] I done played myself. Now the inks are pretty much done. – [Karina] This is such a good ink. – [Jacob] Thank you. I’m really happy with it.
– [Karina] This looks like a coloring book. – [Julia] It really does,
I was just thinking that. It’s so clean.
– [Jacob] A lot of my inks end up looking
like coloring books because I make them very very clean. – [Karina] God I wish that were me. – [Julia] Clean big shapes
without tiny lines in it. I do a lot of little
folds, like at the knee and little creases and things. But yours is so clean-looking. – [Jacob] Yeah that’s me baby. – [Karina] Feels very
satisfying to look at. – [Jacob] The downside to
that is that I’m not very good at doing super detailed line work. I’m good at doing big shapes. You can see that I have
a white block up there because I blocked out where
I had put the official art that I was color sampling from. So that I wouldn’t have to
report it in this episode to our legal team.
(Julia laughing) – [Julia] Shout out to legal. (laughs) – [Jacob] Shout out to legal. (chuckles) It’s behind there. There’s an Emboar behind there that you can’t see so it’s fine. – [Karina] This is how we
get the episodes out on time is we don’t report it to legal. – [Jacob] Yeah exactly. Coloring’s just so much
easier if it’s a known figure just to sample the color
from the actual art. – [Karina] I love that fire. I love the fire on his neck.
– [Jacob] I actually learned something through doing the fire. Through emulating the
fire I sort of learned how to do that anime style fire
which I always really liked but never knew how to do. But I feel like I have a
better grasp on it now. – [Julia] Yeah it looks great. – [Jacob] There’s Todoroki’s burned eye. His classic burned eye. – [Julia] Classic Todoroki. – [Jacob] And then I
just went in with shading to make it look nice and moody. There’s not a ton of shading
usually in the Pokemon anime. They usually do flats a lot of the time but it was looking a
little too flat to me. – [Julia] This suits it so well. – [Jacob] Yeah so I wanted to do shading to make it just look a little,
make it pop a little more. – [Karina] It’s more Pokemon
promotional art than the show which I feel like I, it’s
promotional art for a reason. It looks better. – [Jacob] Yeah ’cause it’s a still image that doesn’t have to move. Which definitely helps. – [Karina] That really gave
that ice Pokemon some depth. Adding that shade to the helmet thing? I don’t know what I’m saying
but you get what I’m saying. – [Jacob] I get it and I appreciate it. Also you’ll notice that I
got to Emboar and I was like, “Oh no, fire makes light.” And then I was like, “I’m
just not gonna reflect that “on the other characters “but I will do it on Emboar himself.” Then I just added these gradients ’cause I wanted to do some
frosty snow over there. And then I wanted to do some
cinders over on this side. – [Julia] This looks great. – [Jacob] And this is
just a soft round brush with some glow effects on it. And that’s it, that’s the full thing. – [Karina] Wow.
– [Julia] That’s so good. – [Jacob] I was super happy
with how this one came out. It was a good art day,
unlike the last episode where I drew Goku as the Avatar. – [Julia] And you had a lot
of problems with his hand. I remember that.
– [Jacob] Yeah and I struggled for a long time. This one was much easier. Came out really nicely. – [Julia] Well I feel like you nailed it. So good job.
– [Jacob] Thank you. Thanks guys, thank you so much. – [Karina] You even labeled
some of your layers. Wow.
(whoosh) – [Jacob] I labeled some of my layers. You know I’m really trying hard if I label some of my layers. It’s still– – [Karina] I’m proud of you, Jacob. – [Jacob] The majority are not labeled but some of them are.
– [Julia] Some of them are. – [Jacob] And that’s something. – [Julia] I do keep
misreading flats as farts. Emboar farts Froslass
farts and Todoroki farts. – [Karina] The whole family.
(whoosh) – [Jacob] Next up we’ve
got Karina’s video. – [Julia] Karina, a new entry to the speed drawing Drawfee universe. – [Jacob] Yeah this is
the first one you’ve done for this kind of episode. – [Karina] So excited. – [Jacob] Do you wanna
tell us what you did? – [Karina] I drew Bakugou. – [Jacob] The angry one! – [Karina] The angry one. – [Julia] The little explosion boy. – [Karina] In the style
of Into the Spider-Verse. – [Jacob] Oh man, I’m really excited
– [Julia] That’s so good. – [Jacob] to see this one. – [Karina] I’m sorry
it’s gonna be kinda fast ’cause I spent a while on it. – [Jacob] Oh that’s totally fine. It’s all 10 minutes here. It doesn’t matter.
– [Julia] It’s all 10 minutes here.
(Karina laughs) – [Jacob] I’ll go ahead and count you in. Three two one, go. – [Karina] I’m just gonna say now, it looks like I really bust out this pose. I kind of didn’t, I looked
up references ahead of time. – [Jacob] That’s still impressive. That’s a good pose. – [Karina] I like collecting pose catalogs and pose reference books. I have no impulse control
so I like to pick one up whenever I’m at the Japanese bookstore. I have a bunch of fighting ones so this is kind of pieced together from I think three different
photos from those books. – [Jacob] I want to
get some of those books ’cause I’m always thinking about how I want more complicated poses. I saw that canvas flip. You’re actually trying to make this work. – [Julia] This looks like, you’re really showing
your animator colors here with this dynamic pose and this movement. – [Jacob] It’s got so much action to it. – [Karina] I always like
trying dynamic poses. It’s something that, like I
said I buy all these books and I’m like, “I’m gonna do this so much.” And then I do it maybe a few times a year. Three times a year. (laughs) – [Jacob] That’s enough.
– [Julia] It looks so good. – [Karina] My thought process for this, ’cause I did not have a very strong idea of how to tackle Into
the Spider-Verse style because it’s a 3D movie, was to just do things the
way I normally do them and deal with it later. I went and inked the whole thing and changed the eyes multiple times. – [Jacob] As you do. – [Karina] Before actually
doing the actual challenge. – [Jacob] I think that’s
fair, I think that works. – [Karina] Welcome to the inking portion. – [Jacob] Enter the inking-verse is what your movie would be called. – [Julia] These lines
are so clean too, my god. – [Jacob] Yeah these
are looking real nice. – [Karina] Thank you. (laughs) – [Julia] I love the shape of the face. Always, the thing I always notice with yours is the shape of the face. It’s so good. – [Jacob] I feel like I’m
watching a music video with how it keeps flipping style and then zooming in and out. He’s gonna be rapping.
– [Karina] I zoom a lot. I also mis-click a lot so if
there’s ever weird flashes where thing just disappears
it’s because I mis-clicked or accidentally hit Z or something. – [Jacob] I do that all the time. – [Karina] It could be
anything really. (laughs) – [Jacob] I hit F4 or F6 a
lot when I’m trying to hit F5 so I oftentimes will bring
up that weird Apple menu that no one knows what
it’s for when you hit F4. – [Karina] Yeah the rare
few parts in this video where I kept accidentally opening things or switching windows and I
wasn’t sure if it recorded or not and I don’t know if they,
’cause after a while I was like, “Don’t bother editing it out,” so if David didn’t take them out you’ll see some of my notes to David. (laughter) – [Julia] I think how
I set up your recording on your computer was that
it only recorded this window of Photoshop, so you
shouldn’t see anything else other than Photoshop. – [Karina] I wasn’t sure if
that included the save menu. – [Julia] No I think
you’re good because mine– – [Karina] I was good, I
just didn’t know. (laughs) – [Julia] Mine doesn’t even
record the little layers panel. And you’ll see that on mine
is that you’ll just see my pen going up and down in
one really small section and that’s ’cause that’s
where my layers are and it’s being hidden. – [Jacob] That’s weird.
– [Julia] Yeah. – [Karina] When it comes to inking, I go between the sketch
and the inks a lot. I did it a lot less in this draw ’cause I was feeling
self-conscious about being recorded but, like there. – [Julia] It is a weird pressure. – [Karina] Yeah, so I
don’t actually finish my sketches that much. I just kinda make up a lot of it in inks or I just go back and redraw
an entire thing. (laughs) – [Jacob] Yeah, totally. I actually did that on mine
but it was too fast to notice where I did an ink layer on the right hand and then I made that into a sketch layer ’cause I didn’t like it and
then I inked over it again and did that a couple
times ’til I liked it. This is so cool already.
– [Karina] This is where I start doing the flats. – [Julia] Whoa. – [Karina] Yeah I go in and I kinda just drop in all the colors. I like to call it the
dirty icing of my drawing like if you’re doing a cake. – [Jacob] Yeah yeah. – [Julia] No it’s good. – [Karina] And then fix it. – [Julia] It’s smart ’cause then you have all the colors available to you so you can just
eye-dropper it or whatever. – [Karina] And that’s why I’m
always hitting the wrong keys on my keyboard because I switched a lot between the eye-dropper and the foreground, background colors I’m always switching in and out. And then I just accidentally
zoom in constantly. – [Jacob] It’s so funny to me to see it. How different the work flow
is for different people. – [Julia] I think it very much comes from where we all come from
in art and our art history. – [Jacob] Yeah like I come from Georgia where everyone just,
(Karina laughs) paint buckets it, flats it right and it’s a Georgia tradition. – [Julia] We have animator,
– [Karina] And I come from Texas where it’s just
a lotta wild yeehawing around the campus, just yeeting
myself all over the place. Where am I now? You don’t know. – [Jacob] You don’t know, I don’t know. No one knows. – [Karina] I don’t even
remember doing this drawing. What I decided to do to start off with this 3D kinda style was to just go in and do color line art so
that it kind of recedes a lot and I could just go crazy
on top of it, I don’t know. I love colored line art. As of right now, I’m kind of
really digging on Promare. Saw Promare a couple times
in theaters, good stuff. And I been dipping back
into colored line art because of that, frankly. (chuckles) – [Jacob] Yeah ’cause they do that in that movie right?
– [Karina] And it always looks really nice, yeah. – [Jacob] Yeah that’s cool.
– [Karina] But it’s something I usually don’t have the patience to do. – [Jacob] It’s the nice thing
about these challenges is it’s like for your job, we’re
making you take your time and just do your best. – [Karina] And I had a
lot of fun with this. It was just a lot of, “Well I’m just making this up right now.” – [Jacob] That’s art. That’s art, dog.
– [Karina] So these are the flats and this is where the wild shit begins.
– [Jacob] What? Oh boy, oh wow. What is happening? Oh, some things are happening now. – [Karina] Yeah, so I was just trying to make it look like the movie and that was a lot of guesswork ’cause it’s a really complicated style but it was really fun to try. – [Jacob] Yeah it’s like you’re doing a lot of textured brushes. – [Karina] Yeah, ’cause that’s
how it looks in the film. Everything’s very, I
don’t know, it’s so weird. It’s soft but also really contrasty so I used a brush I don’t usually use. I think it was the brush
beauty from Kyle’s ink box? – [Jacob] Yeah I know brush beauty. Oh, you got some little– – [Karina] Yeah I got to
break out the half-tones. – [Jacob] The half-tone brushes! – [Karina] ‘Cause there’s just a lot of very subtle half-toning and I don’t know how to change
the size of the half-tone but you know what? (laughs) – [Jacob] Good enough. – [Julia] I like it. – [Jacob] This looks rad. – [Julia] ‘Cause sometimes in that movie they did the big half-tones. I feel like it works. – [Karina] And I also
saw that in the movie the hair looks very painted,
almost looks kinda pencil-like. So just went and painted some hair. And I kinda don’t know what to say ’cause the rest of this
is a lot of just trying to figure out what I’m doing. And a lot of that is just
keep adding more shadows. – [Jacob] I feel like
also that’s what people that’re watching this that
may be into art wanna know. People always ask, “How did
you figure out how to do that?” And a lot of times the answer is, “I just messed around for a long time.” – [Karina] I just messed around. In my own day-to-day I use
a lot of multiply layers and overlay layers. – [Jacob] Oh yeah, me too. – [Karina] I didn’t
really deviate that much from that in this. Although I was expecting to. – [Jacob] They’re just so helpful. – [Karina] I started on
a, just to backtrack, I started kind of on a mid grade because I knew it was gonna have a brightly colored background. And I like to think about my values. Not in life, in colors. – [Jacob] Oh, those explosions look good. – [Karina] I like using
screen adjustment layers. – [Jacob] Oh,
– [Julia] There we go. you’re doing the thing
they do in the movie! Oh, it’s so cool! – [Karina] There’s a lot of
really crazy lighting stuff. I just went and added a
bunch of yellow highlights and I don’t know. (laughs) Screen layers. (laughs) – [Julia] You really pushed
it into Spider-Verse. I was getting the vibe of it before, and then you added that
effect to the explosions and then you added these
yellow highlights and I’m like, “Yeah, this is absolutely Spider-Verse.” – [Karina] I was very excited
for the yellow highlights. – [Julia] Yeah, super cool. I love that purple.
– [Jacob] Oh, this is so dope! – [Karina] And I think a lot
of the rest of this is just me trying to figure out what I
wanna do for the background and not knowing any better,
but also just messing around and really slowing my computer down by making the half-tone brushes – [Jacob] Oh that’s cool. – [Karina] enormous. Well, spoiler. I don’t keep this one. (laughter) – [Jacob] Spoiler, it wasn’t cool enough. – [Karina] Spoiler, I’m very indecisive. Everything I just did is gone now. I do that a lot. I like to just do whole
things and erase it. – [Jacob] I like the orbs
around the explosions though. That’s cool.
– [Karina] Yeah, I thought that was the right choice. – [Jacob] Do you keep that? – [Karina] Yeah I keep that.
– [Jacob] Okay cool. (laughter)
– [Julia] I’m so happy to see someone else who
does just a bunch of stuff and then winds up not keeping any of it because that’s usually
my M.O. on this series. If we can call it that. – [Jacob] I’ve avoided doing
complicated backgrounds in mine, as you saw. – [Karina] Well, I thought
it would be fitting to do something a little zany so here’s mine. – [Jacob] This is so dope.
– [Karina] Thank you. – [Julia] This is so good. – [Jacob] I wanna scream
it from the mountains. I wanna go up on a mountain
and scream, “This is dope.” – [Julia] This is dope!
– [Jacob] Oh man, you did such a good job Karina. This rules.
– [Karina] Thank you. I had a lot of fun figuring this out. – [Jacob] I feel like
people are gonna want this as a desktop background.
– [Karina] I was very in the zone. I’ll post it I guess. (laughs) – [Jacob] Feel free to
once this ep is out. (whoosh)
All right, Julia. Are you ready to do yours? (Julia wheezes) – [Karina] That’s a good noise. – [Jacob] That’s Julia’s hyped up noise. She’s ready to go.
(Julia groans) – [Julia] Yeah. – [Jacob] Do you wanna
tell us a little bit about what you did? – [Julia] I put the call out to Twitter and I said, “What difficult
art style would you like “to see me do?” And so many people said Ayami Kojima. The artist behind the
original Castlevania games. – [Jacob] Oh yeah.
(Karina chuckles) She’s one of my favs and also a person that I have pulled up for one of these challenges and been like, “I’m gonna do this one.” And I pulled up a
reference and I was like, “I’m not gonna do this one.” – [Karina] “I’m not ready.” – [Julia] I think this
is the first one of these that I did not have fun doing
because it was so difficult. Because she is a traditional
artist who taught herself and didn’t know any other artists. So she taught herself every medium but she uses traditional
mediums in non-traditional ways. (Julia wheezes) – [Jacob] And you’re on a computer. – [Julia] Yeah. – [Jacob] Shall we hop
– [Karina] And you went – [Jacob] into it?
– [Karina] for it. – [Julia] Yeah let’s get into it. – [Jacob] Okay, three two one, go! – [Julia] I drew Aizawa because I felt like he kinda
fit the Castlevania feel a little bit.
– [Jacob] Oh totally. – [Julia] If Castlevania had a dirty boy, a dirty tired boy, it would be him. I started off with a basic sketch because Ayami’s anatomy is a little weird. It’s a little off if
you really look at it. But it’s also beautiful. – [Jacob] Yeah there’s something very soft and every person she draws is beautiful. – [Julia] Yeah and if there’s a big pause it’s because I’m looking
at reference going, “What?” – [Jacob] “How?” – [Julia] “How, why?” – [Karina] Oh is that the part
where you sent us samples? – [Julia] Yeah. The other thing with her art is that she uses such thick oils that it creates lighting
effects on her paintings. You can see the light that’s
coming from above the painting to hit the thickness of the painting. So you see whole brushstrokes
in all of her things. Her backgrounds are apparently grease that she pushes into it. – [Jacob] Oh interesting.
– [Karina] Huh. – [Julia] Yeah and she also uses, it looks like colored pencils for the face to get those fine
details for the eyelashes but that’s on top of oil paints that’re super super thick
and mashing together and blending together. – [Jacob] Is this your inking color? – [Julia] No, this is my refined sketch. – [Karina] Because she doesn’t
– [Jacob] I’ve never seen you – [Karina] do an ink.
– [Jacob] do this color before.
– [Julia] This yellow? – [Jacob] This is a new development. – [Julia] Yeah I tried a new color because things were
gonna get weird and wild. I also used a 50% gray
background as my neutral because she tends to go very
dark when she does paintings and also Aizawa has jet black hair. – [Jacob] You’d have to let that pop a bit.
– [Julia] A jet black outfit. Yeah yeah yeah, so I had
to try to figure that out. I went lighter with everything and then you see that I go darker. – [Jacob] Can I say, I love
this composition so far. – [Julia] Thanks. – [Jacob] I think you really
captured the way she does eyes. The facial features that you drew look really a lot like hers. – [Julia] Strong but beautiful. – [Jacob] Strong but beautiful. – [Julia] And soft, it’s a mystery. And then I tried a lot of things because I had to figure out how to do an oil painting on the computer. I made the mistake of trying
to work how I usually work which is in many layers so
that I can manipulate things. But the way that oil brushes work, the Kyle Webster oil brushes, is that everything has
to be on the same layer. – [Jacob] So it will mix properly? – [Julia] Yeah, so that
it’ll mix and blend. So you’ll see that it’s kind
of streaky in the beginning and then, yeah like there you can see that it’s starting to blend. And then I start flipping
in between colors so I can blend it and push and pull it. It’s wild. Because the hair looks, the way that she paints
it, the hair looks so wet and then the faces look really really soft and also very dry.
(laughter) ‘Cause she’s not using oils. – [Jacob] Wet and soft and dry. – [Julia] It’s… – [Jacob] Also I imagine, based
on when I look at her work, that she probably spends a
lot of time on each piece and really gets into the details. I imagine it’s a multiple-day process. – [Julia] And I tried to do
that in a couple of hours. – [Jacob] Yeah that you had to
distill into a couple hours. – [Julia] And you see
me try a lot of things that I wind up just going over again because I don’t like how it’s happening. This whole facial hair, I wind up redoing on the skin layer later so
that it’ll blend a little bit because the way that she
also does eyebrows is that she oil paints it on top of a thin oil painting of the skin but then does the skin shading
in pencil or something. So you see facial hair
just come in and out. Because it’s all super super wet oils. – [Jacob] I can’t imagine using
that many different media. I can’t imagine using two media. – [Julia] It seems like
she’s just having fun with it and just like, “What if I use this thing? “What if I use this thing? “What about this thing?” – [Karina] Yeah, it’s fun to mix things. – [Julia] Yeah it’s a wild time. – [Jacob] I would be so scared. – [Julia] Yeah, especially since she was
doing it all traditionally. And I was doing this digitally. It’s just a lot of stuff happening. – [Jacob] This is looking rad so far. – [Julia] Thanks. My whole brain was busted. – [Jacob] The whole thing? – [Julia] Yeah. I started off being like, “Oh yeah I could probably figure this out. “I’ve painted traditionally before.” But again, I was still
in computer mindset. And then I just had to
completely abandon that and do everything on one layer. So I had to, I just merged all my layers and started painting again. – [Karina] Oh boy. (Jacob and Julia laugh) – [Jacob] Isn’t there something
kinda freeing about that? – [Julia] A little bit, but then– – [Jacob] By limiting yourself
you kinda feel a little… – [Julia] That definitely
was good and it was nice. And it was a little freeing.
– [Karina] It’s like a real painting. – [Julia] Yeah, here’s the
thing about real painting. I hate it, I hate doing it. – [Karina] Interesting.
– [Julia] I’m not good at it. You can see me trying to
get some shading in there and blend that. – [Karina] Ooh. – [Julia] Yeah, tried to give it depth because she does a lot of soft shading on, I was looking at
specifically the one that she did for what’s-his-face’s whip. – [Jacob] Richter? – [Julia] Yeah, there’s a– – [Jacob] Richter.
– [Julia] Richter. There’s a painting she did of Richter where he’s holding it over his head and you can see that
it’s pretty soft-looking. It looks really cool, but I
was looking at it being like, “How? “How do I make it bandages?” – [Jacob] I will say that
if you just showed me this even at this stage, and
told me what artist, asked me what artist you were mimicking, that’s the first person I would say. I think you’ve captured
the look really well. – [Julia] This was me
debating a background because she has a lot of
black and red backgrounds. Then I was like, “Oh that
doesn’t work with this.” So I got rid of it. I did include his eye, his red eye. He has red eyes, right? When he does his power?
– [Jacob] I think so, yeah. When he does his Eraserhead power. – [Julia] See, this is me
redoing the facial hair, the eyebrows and the beard. And you can see it
blending a little bit more and it gets a little softer
and it gets that paint texture. – [Jacob] Totally. – [Julia] That means that after this, I’m going to start redoing the hair. Because I merge it. – [Jacob] Oh no, Julia.
(laughter) – [Karina] This is the process. I love this. – [Julia] It’s just like realizing that you should’ve just done
it right from the beginning instead of trying to shortcut it. – [Jacob] But the only way to really learn that is
to mess it up, you know? Or do it one way and be
like, “This doesn’t work.” You have to figure it out on your own. – [Julia] For the face and
all the shading on the face I was switching between
pencil tools and oil to kinda make it work. I also just didn’t like the
shape of the hair a whole lot. So I went in and cleaned that up and then I was fixing
some of my blending there. I think my problem with it is that she is a master at
what she does, Ayami. She’s so good at what she does and then mine in comparison, I feel like I went back,
I don’t know, 12 years of art experience. Compared to hers, it looks like such a
rudimentary oil painting. – [Jacob] I think it looks like what a really good artist
could do in two hours to mimic someone who’s
a master of what they do and has all the time to work on it. – [Julia] It’s one of those things where I just wish that I
could’ve done it better. But it was hard and she’s as renowned
as she is for a reason. Oh, there’s my layers. You saw them very quickly. (laughter) That scrolling mouse. You could see my computer
freaking out a little bit at me, trying to blend some of this. – [Jacob] Computers don’t
like it when you do that. – [Julia] And then I’m trying to add some clarity and
depth to some of these ’cause it’s starting to bleed a bit because I was using some
really wet oils in there. So it was all starting to mesh together and it got kinda blurry
so I was trying to go in and kinda clarify some of this.
– [Jacob] The more you add the paint texture to this,
the more it’s working for me too, I think. – [Julia] She uses some real, she gets real brushstroke-y in clothes. You can really see that she
just kinda chunks it out. – [Jacob] And now you’re working
on some background ideas? – [Julia] So now, since she pushes grease
into the background to get that texture where
you can see the emboss of the light coming from the top, I actually, I did a trick digitally where I put in brush strokes, added an emboss, erased the
shadow part of the emboss so you just have the light,
and I put the layer on darken. You saw that it was a really bright color, so you don’t see those strokes anymore. You just see the light source. – [Jacob] You actually used an emboss, which I thought was impossible
to do in any sort of way. – [Julia] I had to think
about what that was again. I think this is it. – [Jacob] Is this your final one? – [Julia] I think this is my final one because I had to stop at some point or else I was just gonna keep
pushing and pulling forever and I probably would have
eventually gotten to a place that I really liked it, but
I probably would’ve spent an unreasonable amount of time. – [Jacob] This looks awesome though, is the thing.
– [Karina] This is rad. – [Jacob] I think you crushed it. Like I said, I feel like you’re
really failing to consider that you did this in two
hours as compared to– – [Karina] Is she like this every time? – [Jacob] Yeah she is like
this every single time. – [Julia] I liked my Goku. – [Jacob] People in the comments I know will be yelling at you right now. – [Julia] I liked my Goku. This one was just hard for
me and I didn’t have fun. But I’m glad that I did it. I learned a lot and I will
be using it going forward, which I guess is the point.
(whoosh) – [Jacob] That is the point. We’re all learning here. – [Julia] And I think it’s
also good to show people that professional artists
don’t do everything perfectly or don’t love it. They also have a rough time.
– [Karina] That’s why I really like, ’cause I
use Procreate a lot now, ’cause I love being in bed. And I like that it automatically
records your drawings unless you turn that off. I like posting those because
then people will be like, “Wow, you spent a full
two hours on that arm.” And I’m like, “Yes I did.” And they find it comforting. They’re like, “Cool, me too.
– [Julia] “I erased it “six times.” – [Karina] “We’re all comrades here and bad at deciding
which way the arm goes.” – [Jacob] It’s good to
demystify the process. The more people can see of
how much everyone struggles to sort of get the result they want, I think the more people will feel better about their own process. – [Julia] And how much of
it goes into just logistics and trying to figure it out. You never get it on the first shot. There’s just a lot of trying. – [Jacob] Art’s hard, y’all. – [Julia] Art’s hard, y’all.
– [Karina] Art’s hard. – [Jacob] But we had fun. I hope you guys had fun watching this. We’ll be doing more of these in the future so keep a look out. If you’re feeling like you
want to, maybe leave a comment with some styles we could do ’cause that’ll be
helpful for us next time. And as always, we’re sorry. – [Karina] Sorry.
– [Julia] Sorry.

Artists Draw Magic the Gathering Villains (That They’ve Never Seen)

Artists Draw Magic the Gathering Villains (That They’ve Never Seen)


– [Nathan] Welcome to Drawfee, where we take dumb ideas– – [Julia] And make even dumber drawings. – I’m Nathan.
– I’m Julia. – I’m Jacob.
– And I’m Carolyn! – Oh, no.
– Wow. – [Jacob] I’m not liking that one. I’m not feeling–
– Go with it. – [Jacob] Do you want to take it again? Do you want to take it one more time? – Sure.
– Say, I’m Carolyn. – I’m Carolyn.
– That’s so much nicer. – [Nathan] Guys, Carolyn Page is back. You may remember her from the other Magic: The Gathering episode we did? – Yeah!
– The one without Tristan. We’re doing Magic: The
Gathering villains today. – Woo!
– ‘Cause that game’s got some villains. We did some heroes, we drew some planes walkers. – Sure did.
– Last time. – [Carolyn] Who did I draw, a Justin? – [Nathan] You drew a– – You drew Ajani.
– Ajani Goldmane? – Ajani Goldmane.
– How could you forget– – [Julia] The coolest guy in the world. – [Nathan] How could you
forget Ajani Goldmane? – [Jacob] Justin? – A J name.
(group laughing) – A Justin.
– Justin? – A Justin?
– Justin Goldmane. – He’s a Justin fine.
(many people laughing) – [Nathan] Carolyn, thank you so much for coming back on the episode. – [Carolyn] Oh, absolutely. – [Nathan] Excited to
hear what other voices you’ve got in store for us. – Holy moly.
– After that intro. – [Carolyn] So many voices,
you want to hear this one? Yeah, this one’s kind of German, yeah? – [Jacob] It kind of is! – It kind of is, yeah!
– It kind of is almost! – [Nathan] It’s like the the
character from the Simpsons. – [Carolyn] And then
this one’s a little bit like Kiwi, Aussie, ‘ey! Good on ya!
– It again, it kinda is. – We’ll–
– Those are both really close to being accents. – [Nathan] We’ll workshop
it during the episode, but I am excited to try and draw a Magic: The Gathering card, a drawing,
– Heck yeah. – Of a thing, a person,
– Heck yeah. – [Nathan] A character, a villain who appears on a Magic:
The Gathering card, or multiple cards.
– All of that. – [Nathan] Based on your description. – [Carolyn] All right, so you’re
wanting the first one, huh? – [Nathan] I would be
wanting the first one. – [Carolyn] Well, we’re gonna start off with the kind of biggest nemesis in the Magic: The Gathering universe. His name is Nicol Bolas. – [Nathan] Oh, you mentioned
him on the other one. – [Carolyn] He’s an ancient dragon. – [Nathan] He’s a dragon. – [Carolyn] The oldest from
the beginnings of time. – That’s an old dragon.
– Thank you for giving the dragon
to Nathan and not me. – [Jacob] Yeah, he’s the
best at drawing dragons. – Yeah.
– Oh yeah, is he? – Yeah, maybe he’s–
– Yeah, no– – [Jacob] Genuinely
good at drawing dragons, and me and Julia are just horse shit. – I draw fat worms.
– Oh, no. with wings every time I have to draw a dragon.
– Isn’t that kind of what a dragon is? – [Julia] Yeah, but see there’s a way of making it cool.
– It’s wyrm with a Y, instead of an O. – Wee-erm.
– Way-erm. – Wee-erm.
– Wee-erm, wyrm. – So–
– Now, I have a confession. – [Nathan] ‘Cause I watch
videos on the internet, Magic: The Gathering has
– Bad. been sort of promoting itself? – Sure has.
– With these ads? – Yeah.
– And So, I feel like I have an inkling of what Nicol
Bolas might kinda look like, just sort of based on these ads. – [Carolyn] You’re doing
a bang-up job so far. – [Nathan] He’s like a demon dragon almost lookin’ guy, right? – Yeah.
– He’s sort of got a gobliny face?
– Yeah, he does kind of have a gobliny face. Really, his most distinguishing
characteristics are he’s got big horns, he’s got big giant horns, – [Jacob] That’s the stuff. – [Carolyn] He has an egg floating in between those horns. – He’s got an egg?
– He’s got a head egg? – He’s got a head egg!
Wow! So, I think they’re like– – [Carolyn] Sometimes you
wake up in the morning and you have such a big
head egg that you just, you gotta stay home, you know?
– Exactly! – [Jacob] Yeah, we were worried Carolyn wouldn’t make it in today, because she had a bad head egg. – [Carolyn] I had a bad head egg, exactly. – [Nathan] What do you
take for a head egg? – [Carolyn] Tylenol, eggstra strength. You’re just literally drawing the character, this is very good, you’re betraying the premise of your own show.
– This is it from memory for me, from sort of vaguely seeing him in the background. – From an actual memory?
– Yeah. – [Julia] He also looks
like a possessed Yoda, a little bit.
– A little bit! – [Nathan] He’s kind of a possessed Yoda, that’s sort of the impression I got. – [Carolyn] It’s like Yoda mixed with Diablo from Diablo. – [Nathan] He’s kind of a Diablo. He’s a little bit of a Diablo. – [Carolyn] He’s a Diabloda. – [Jacob] He’s a Diabloda. We can all agree.
– We can all. – He’s got a little egg up here? – Yeah.
– Why does that sound like something I’d call my grandmother? – [Carolyn] Diabloda. – [Julia] Oh, there’s another accent guys. – [Jacob] They’re all comin’ out today. – [Carolyn] Oh yes, this
one is also an accent for talking to grandmas.
– I have no idea. – Yeah, what is–
– Where you from? – [Carolyn] Sort of Greece, maybe? I don’t know. – [Nathan] Sort of Greece,
maybe, I don’t know, I love that.
– I love the sort of world that you entered. Wow, that’s a strong a strong jaw. – [Nathan] I think this is him. This is sort of his face. – [Julia] You fuckin’ nailed it man. – [Nathan] And then he’s got like a sort of a straight neck for a dragon? – Yeah, old straight neck.
– Old straight neck. – [Nathan] Old straight neck. Well, tell me more about him. ‘Cause he’s he’s kind of an asshole right? – [Carolyn] He’s big asshole. He wants to rule the universe. He’s a simple dragon with simple wishes. He wants to dominate all life. He’s a very powerful psychic? – Oh!
– He’s a mind mage? He can miniplate time and space. – [Nathan] I’m sort of at
the end of my memory here, now at this point in the drawing. I need a little bit more guidance now. – [Carolyn] Okay, well he’s got wings. – And he–
– Big wings? – [Jacob] Since when do you
get guidance on this show? – [Julia] Yeah, when do you get guidance on this show?
– What is this new– – Where are we?
– Premise you’re doing, where you draw your do your best job at drawing the actual dragon from Magic: the Gathering. – Okay, okay, okay!
– I didn’t know that asking for tips was something I could do? – [Jacob] There are rules here. – [Julia] My career on this
show would be so different. – All right well–
– You can get lore, but you can’t get fuckin’
art tips from Carolyn. – I was gonna get some lore! – Okay so, the lore–
– Like that he has wings. (girls laughing)
– And legend states that Nicol Bolas would
fly around on his wings. – His big cool wings.
– On his big cool wings. – [Carolyn] He is very ancient. – [Nathan] Okay, so he’s kinda old. – [Carolyn] He’s super evil. – Kind of old guy.
– Is his first name Nico? – [Julia] Nicol. – Oh, not Nico.
– Not Nico. – He’s like, hey Nico!
– Hey, Nico! – Nico, Nico Bolas.
– He’s always kinda call you up on your cell phone saying, my cousin, hey!
– It’s my birthday! – [Jacob] Nico! Cousin!
– Is he wearing a jersey? Is that what’s going on here? – I was just sort of–
– It does look like he’s wearing a basket ball jersey. – [Nathan] I was trying to just
sort of give him skin folds, but I like the basketball jersey. – [Julia] He’s a big Bulls fan. – [Jacob] That’s strong “Space Jam” vibes. – Oh, man!
– Oh, yeah! – [Nathan] He stole all of the other planes walkers’ talent– – At basketball.
– At basketball. – [Caroline] That is kinda what happened in a recent magic set. – No it didn’t.
– Yeah, it did! He stole all the planes walkers, he tried to steal their sparks, which is what allows them to planes walk.
– And then he put them in a basketball?
– Exactly. – [Nathan] So, we’re gonna get that. – Now that’s–
– But he’s old, so he has to have appropriate length basket ball shorts, but they have to be hiked up to his chest, so they’re just real
itty bitty on his legs, you see to much thigh. – [Carolyn] Grandpas love a high waist. – [Jacob] They do, yeah. – [Carolyn] His neck folds are really, they look touchable.
– You like those? – [Carolyn] I do like those. Run your fingers through those. He’s a regular old gilf, dragony gilf.
– I hate the idea of running your fingers through neck folds.
(girls laughing) That sounds horrible. I have no interest.
– Just like rivers of flesh. – [Jacob] Rivers of flesh, huh? – [Julia] That’s a basket ball. – [Nathan] Yeah, that’s where he’s kept– – That’s a spark.
– All of the other planes walkers’ talent. – [Caroline] You guys
are so good at drawing. – [Nathan] We said–
(congregation laughing) – Hell yeah!
– Are you sure? Do you see what you’re looking at? – [Carolyn] I do! I can’t draw anything. – [Nathan] This is Nicol Ballas. – Ballas!
– Oh my God. – Nicol Ballas!
– And you’re good at puns. – [Jacob] Oh my God. – [Julia] Only Nathan’s
good at that, out of this. – [Jacob] Does Magic ever do AU cards? Like a joke set? – [Carolyn] They do do joke sets. They’re called the unsets. So, they’ve done unstable, unhinged, I think there’s another one. I haven’t played any of them.
– Would they do a b-ball one? – [Nathan] Yeah, would they do– – [Julia] That feels like a munchkin set. – [Carolyn] I don’t know they
do a lot of inside jokes. – [Jacob] What about some outside jokes? – [Nathan] What about some
inside-outside ball jokes? – [Julia] Wow, everyone’s favorite sport. – You are friends with magic.
– I am, it’s my only friend.
– Mr. Magic. – [Jacob] Can you ask
them if we can make a set? – [Nathan] Can we make one? – [Jacob] Just one set. – [Julia] Drawfee ex-wizards of the coast? – Yeah.
– And ours’ is basketball. – Ours is basketball?
– ‘Cause we know so much about basketball. Anyone who watches Drawfee knows. – [Jacob] What if we just made art at the right ratio and we told our fans to paste the pictures over the pictures on the cards? – [Julia] Uh-huh, sure. – So, like this would show up on the card, instead of the original one. – [Julia] We can make that happen. – [Jacob] Are they allowed to do that? – [Carolyn] Oh my God, his little legs! – [Nathan] We ran out of room. – [Julia] He has some real human here, – I like it.
– And I love it. – [Carolyn] His knobbly grandpy knees. – [Nathan] Yeah, he’s still old. – Oh my God.
– He didn’t get less old. – [Carolyn] He’s so cute! – [Julia] He’s so cute. – He’s ready.
– Oh, wow! – [Jacob] Magic Johnson The Gathering. – That’s good!
– Nice. – Right?
– There we are, you’re right. – [Nathan] Magic Johnson The Gathering! – We got there.
– Hell yeah. – [Nathan] Thank you, thank you everyone. Thanks for listening, this
has been Drawfee show. – [Nathan] I don’t think
we need to do anymore. – [Jacob] The show where we wait until one of us makes a good enough
joke that we can stop? – [Carolyn] Yeah. – [Julia] That’s why we make art, just in general. – [Nathan] We make it,
so we can stop doing it. – [Julia] To someday quit. – [Nathan] I can’t wait to quit. That’ll be a good day. – Hell yeah.
– Well, you can quit now, ’cause you made that joke. – [Jacob] Yeah, but I feel
like I don’t have enough money to live on for the rest of my life. I wanna make one art good enough that it just gets me set.
– Oh wow. – For life.
– A Banksy, if you will. – [Jacob] Yeah, I need to make a Banksy, – [Nathan] ‘Cause Banksy
stopped after his first one. – After he shredded it.
– Maybe he should have. – [Julia] And now there’s a new Banksy, – New?
– Jakesy. – [Carolyn] The Dread Lord Pirate Roberts. It’s a Dread Pirate Roberts.
– Oh, it’s a title! Banksy’s a title.
– Yeah, it’s– – That’s passed down.
– It’s a mantle, like Batman. – [Jacob] From graffiti
artist to graffiti artist. Is this good?
– Yes. – That’s great!
– Yes, confirmed good. – This is Nicol–
– Confirmed good. – Ballas.
– Nicol Ballas. – Let’s look it up.
– Look him up. Oh wow.
– Oh my God! – Wow.
– It’s exactly the same pose. – [Jacob] Oh, he’s doing the hand thing and everything.
– Yeah! (everyone loudly laughing) – [Carolyn] Nathan how? (group intensely laughing)
– How? So good!
– That’s amazing. – [Nathan] Look at me, ah, great. That’s the closest I’ve ever been. Thank you, internet YouTube adds. – Holy cow.
– For cluing me in. – That’s so good.
– Carolyn. – Next up.
– Me. – [Carolyn] We got a great one for ya. – [Jacob] Thank you for
picking a great one for me. – [Carolyn] This guys, or girls, gender nonconforming thing’s name is Ashiok. – Ashiok!
– Ashiok! – [Julia] Ashiok’s most
defining feature is, they don’t have a top of the face. – [Jacob] They don’t
have a top of the face? – [Carolyn] The top of the
face for Ashiok is made out of pure nightmare energy.
What? – Whoa!
– Nice. – There you, we have challenge you. – [Nathan] They have bottom of nose, and mouth, and chin? – [Carolyn] Yeah, it’s
kind of the eye of Sauron, I mean mouth of Sauron
situation a little bit. – Oh, that’s fun.
– Cool. – [Carolyn] And Ashiok
is a nightmare mage, and feeds off of nightmare
energy from other people, and steals nightmares.
– Love that. – Jacob, this is Bart.
(Jacob laughing) – [Nathan] It’s Bart, this
aint the top of the head, I’ll tell you that much right now. – [Carolyn] It looks
like a teeth situation. – This is a teeth situation
– Ah, I see, okay. – [Julia] Oh no. – [Jacob] Well I know
that there’s a bottom. – [Nathan] If Bart was gums. – [Jacob] Yeah, if Bart was gums. So, you said, they have a bottom half of the face?
– Mm-hmm. – [Julia] They got a
bottom half of the face. – [Jacob] And the top
half is nightmare energy. – Pure nightmare energy.
– Pure nightmare energy. – [Carolyn] Also with horns, it’s like just horns, nightmare horns. And then dark wispy energy kind of flying around it.
– Yeah, as you do. – [Carolyn] And they went
to the plane of Theros, which is a Greek mythology inspired plane, and tried to put the whole plane to sleep, and give them eternal nightmares, so they could feed off the
nightmare energy forever. – [Jacob] That’s messed up. – [Nathan] Does one of the
horns send everyone back to high school?
– Is that your recurring nightmare?
– I had– – That’s one of mine.
– Yeah. – [Carolyn] That’s also one of mine. Is like having to repeat senior year, and then I wake up, and I’m so glad that I’m an adult, and then I go play switch, and have ice cream for breakfast. – Being adult is the best.
– It really is! – [Nathan] Nothing gets
me in a better mood to go to work then remembering that I don’t have to go to high school.
– Yes. – [Carolyn] And then if you
didn’t want to go to work, you could just not come, and the cops can’t tell you to go to work.
– That’s true. There’s no going to work truancy officer. It’s just eventually Bridgman will be like, hey!
– You gotta come to work. – You have to come to work.
– Be like, yeah sorry, that’s my bad. People would tweet at me, and be like, why isn’t there a Drawfee episode? (members of group faintly laughing) – Then I’d feel bad.
– You’d be like, oh my bad. – Oh my bad, I’m sorry.
– I’ve stopped going to work. I was eating a lot of ice cream. – [Nathan] I had a quarter life crisis, a third life crisis? Where am I at? – [Julia] Depends on how long you live. – [Nathan] Yeah, depends
how long I’ll live. – [Carolyn] Yeah, that’s kind of a, only you can say that in retrospect, kind of thing.
– That’s true. – [Carolyn] This is actually scarier than the real Ashiok.
– I like this design a lot Jacob. – [Jacob] Thank you,
I’m working through it. I’m experimenting with some things here. I’m trying some things out.
– The bottom row of teeth is really funny though, It’s like, it’s very cool it just sort of looks like you’d be going, (guys grunting comically) (Nathan mildly laughs)
– With the cleft chin? I love it. – [Carolyn] I’m so hungry. – Just drop it in.
– Just drop it in. – Drop it in.
– La, la, la, la, la. – [Jacob] Maybe he’s got like a tongue. – [Nathan] The orthodontist
said I have an underbite, but I did not want to get braces. And this is what happened. – [Jacob] He’s definitely
got a tongue coming out. (group comically stuttering) – [Carolyn] This is what
happens when you don’t floss. You lose the whole top of your head – I only floss-
– What accent is that? – I don’t know.
– Illegal. That’s an underbite accent.
– You lose the other top of your head you do. – [Carolyn] I lost the top of me head. – Hello mum.
– Hello mum. – Hello, mum.
I lost the top of me head. It’s nightmare energy now in it. – [Carolyn] I’m just a tongue
and horns now aren’t I? I can’t put ’em down me
old tongue and horns. – [Julia] Tongue and horns! – [Nathan] I’m all tongue
and horns, aren’t I? – [Carolyn] I’d go for
the old tongue and horns if you know what I mean. – [Jacob] That’s all I can give her, that’s all I got, tongue and horns. – [Julia] Oh! With the collar? – [Nathan] The tongue and horns of course is a traditional British pastry. I saw them make that on
the British baking show. Awe, that’s a thick collar. – [Jacob] I think it’s like an armor, one of those armor collars. – [Carolyn] It looks like a foam mat that I used to roll around on– – Maybe it’s also–
– In gym class. – [Jacob] Like a foam mat? – [Nathan] It looks
like a very intense one of those head pillows you’d take with you on an airplane. Because again, he’s
doing a lot of sleeping. He puts everyone on the plane to sleep.
– That’s true. – [Julie] On the plane? Oh, I get it.
– Oh! – Hey, planes walkers. You made what I said into a better joke. Thank you Carolyn!
– Jokes are about teamwork. – [Nathan] On Drawfee they are at least. – [Carolyn] You guys have made all these characters cooler so far. – [Nathan] Did I make Nicol Ballas cooler? – [Julia] Yeah, you could grandpy. Grandpy’s are always cooler. – [Nathan] I made the Sitcom
spin off, Nicky Ballas. – [Jacob] Nicky Ballas, starring Dwayne, “The Rock”, Johnson. – Wood watch.
– Wood watch, yeah. – [Jacob] Wood Watch, starring
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. New fantasy series. He finds a watch made of wood. – [Carolyn] What happens when
Groot becomes a detective. – [All] Wood watch – [Jacob] Coming to CBS All Access. (everyone laughing) – This guy.
– Thick neck. – Has a thick neck.
– Yeah, what’s his neck doing? Is it just thick? – [Julia] His skull could be floatin’? – [Carolyn] I like your take on it. I actually think the thing conically has a pretty slender neck. – [Nathan] But then, why
does he need such a big piece of armor protecting his neck?
– It’s cool! – [Nathan] It’s just cool. It’s purely pathetic!
– Fashion statement! Well, whenever someone aims for like the one mouth
part that he’s got he kind of tucks his head down. – It’s like a turtle!
– Tucks it in, yeah. – I love that.
– I get it. – [Jacob] So then, he’s
definitely got pauldrons. You gotta, you gotta have pauldrons. – [Nathan] I like this close up. We don’t do enough just sort of shoulders up poses. – [Jacob] I was taking
some Julia inspiration, ’cause I wanted to make it a
little creepier and weirder, and not like my usual style, so I decided I’d go like
a Julia sort of portrait – [Julia] Give yourself less to draw? – Yeah.
– Yeah, that’s my tactic.
– You can put more detail in the important bits.
– I do that, ’cause I don’t want to
think about drawing legs, or feet, or hands. – [Jacob] Sometimes you don’t. – [Nathan] I don’t want to do that either, but I still draw the legs, and it shows.
(Julia mildly laughing) – [Jacob] It shows that you don’t- – That I have not–
– You were not interested in– – [Nathan] I was not interested in those. – In doing that-
– Those ones. – Those knobbly knees
– Those knobbly knees. Those old man knees. – [Jacob] And then we got one of these. – [Nathan] Asymmetrical pauldron design. Hell yes.
– Oh, you know that’s a villainous look. – [Jacob] One of these
big flamey ones over here. – Oh, fuck yeah dude!
– I think I’m done with this. – Wow, I think you-
– I’m just gonna add a lot more lines later, at a later time.
– You rushed it. – [Carolyn] Those lines
are very satisfying. I would run my hands through
grandpa Ballas’s neck, and through this Ashiok’s pillow. – His neck pillow?
– I wanna touch it. – His lack of neck. – [Jacob] Slide your hand under his head, and wiggle your fingers around in this. – It’s so cold.
– In the hole. – This is great.
– Let me look them up. – [Jacob] Ashiok – Whoa, what?
– Whoa! He’s rad!
– They’re cool. They’re even cooler than what I did! – [Julia] Rad as hell. – [Carolyn] They don’t
have a big tongue though. – [Jacob] It’s not just
lower jaw half, huh? It’s below the nose. It’s like what Nathan said.
– It’s like what I said, but I like yours better. – [Jacob] Mines got a big
licky tongue at least. But, I love his armor, – It’s pretty–
– Got a big collar going on. – [Nathan] You didn’t even
see this in a trailer, and you got pretty close. – Look at those nails.
– Wow. – Yeah, I forgot those–
– Should’ve described the nails.
– Fingernails. – [Julia] Well, real scratchers. – Well.
– Forgot those scratchers. Well, I like what I did. I think it turned out fun. – [Nathan] Nightmare monsters
always got big scratchers. – [Jacob] Yeah, they gotta have big scratchers.
– That’s the rule. – [Jacob] Julia you ready to hop in? – Yep, this is the best one. This is one of the three Eldrazi titans, which are creatures from
the blight eternities. Born out of pure energy of space time. – Hi there.
– I love that. – [Julia] This creature’s name is Ulamog! – Ulamog. – Ulamog.
– Ulamog – [Julia] You know that
bottom half is all tentacles. (multiple people laughing) – [Julia] It’s just tentacles, and then a big kind of bony skull face, but not like a human
skull, just like bones, and then the torso is kind of like a human torso and it’s all pink and purple. The upper arms are regular, and then the bottom lower
arms are four of them that are like split.
– Hey. – [Carolyn] You know, and I
mean this in the best way, you know when kids try to describe you their own OC that they haven’t drawn yet?
– Yep! – [Carolyn] That’s what you sounded like. – It sounds like nonsense.
– It’s human torso, a skull head but not
human skull necessarily, and tentacle legs. – [Jacob] And arms that
split into four arms? – [Julia] Yeah. – Get outta here!
– Not forearms. – It seems pretty simple.
– The forearms are four arms. – [Nathan] This seems right up your ally – [Julia] Is it though? – [Jacob] It’s one of three titans made of space time energy? – [Julia] Yeah, the other
two are Emrakul and Kozilek. – Emrakul?
– Bird skull. – Love it
– Hell yeah. – [Jacob] Take me to plague doctor town. – This guy’s–
– That’s where I like to live. – [Carolyn] Goin’ to plague doctor town. – [Jacob] I don’t actually
want to go there I don’t think. – No.
– No. – [Carolyn] You know where
I grew up we weren’t allowed to cross the field by my house, because it was full of prairie dogs that had the bubonic plague.
– What? – Really?
– For real? – [Carolyn] Yep, yeah, for real. – Prairie dogs–
– Yeah. – [Nathan] Have the bubonic plague? – Plagued prairie dogs?
– Yeah, a couple people in Colorado every year
get the bubonic plague. – And don’t armadillos have–
– Quite treatable. – Leprosy? – Do they?
– Yeah, they carry leprosy. – That’s disgusting. – Wow.
– But, they’re not affected by it? But like, humans who interact with armadillos can get it, I don’t know, its really weird.
– That’s crazy – [Carolyn] Nature. – Nature?
– How gross. – [Jacob] Did you know that
all chipmunks have racism – That’s ate up, like in squirrels? They’re super racist–
– Yeah. – Like squirrels?
– All chipmunks, they spread racism like a disease. – Is that why it’s–
– If you let a– – So rampant?
– Bite you. – That’s terrible.
– Chipmunks are horrible. (Nathan faintly laughing) – [Julia] That really
re-contextualizes Alvin and the chipmunks.
– Oh no! – [Nathan] You were trying
to think of a disease, you gave up! – [Jacob] Well, it kind of is a disease, it’s a social– – Yeah, it’s a–
– It’s a social disease. – A social disease, it’s a–
– It’s a rot, a moral social sickness at the core of a lot of the worlds problems. – And isn’t that?
– And it’s all from? – It’s from chipmunks
– Chipmunks! – [Carolyn] And the vaccine
is education and experience. – Wow.
– Yeah, Carolyn. – [Nathan] Chipmunks hate those things. – This is-
– Don’t be a chipmunk y’all – This is-
– Be like a squirrel. – [Carolyn] Crazed girl,
be like a squirrel. – That’s a White Stripes reference. – Sure is.
– Awe, I love that album. – [Jacob] Julia, of course
drawing the inside spaghettis, they need–
– This is fantastic! – [Julia] I had to draw
the inside spaghettis. I was trying to figure out how to connect this bird skull to this human torso! – [Nathan] So far we’ve had wrinkle neck, no neck, and spaghetti neck. – [Carolyn] You can call
this one the neck episode. – [Nathan] The three necks. – [Jacob] I think we’ll just
call it the neck episode. (group expressively snickering) – Probably be the best–
– Title it, the neck episode. – [Carolyn] What? Unsubscribe. – The neck generation.
– Not interested in- – Nice.
– That was a good joke, Julia. – [Julia] Thank you. – This character–
– You guys have a- – That you’re drawing is–
– I like this – I’m attracted to?
– This delicate dress. – [Jacob] This bird is
wearing Marge Simpson’s dress (group faintly snickering) – [Carolyn] Its kind of like
got an Egyptian thing going on. – [Nathan] Yeah, I like this – [Jacob] Yeah, by way of Marge Simpson – [Nathan] Egyptian by
way of Marge Simpson. That’s a new aesthetic
– Very cool. – We’re Breaking new ground.
– Julia’s breaking this arm. – Gotta split that arm.
– So, Ulamog– – It’s four arms right? – Yeah.
– You said? – Two on each side?
– It’s forearms, or four arms.
– Is it two on each side? – Yeah.
– Is it two on each side? – [Carolyn] So, Ulamog,
and Kozilek, and Emrakul, the three Eldrazi titans, in the lore they are but small outcroppings. Their physical forms are just like what they let you perceive of them, and they can bend space time, and do all kinds of crazy stuff, and they like destroy, they just love to destroy. (group mildly giggling)
– They just– – [Jacob] Really into destroying lately. – [Carolyn] They just
can’t get enough of it. – [Nathan] That’s on their dating profile. Interests? Destruction.
– Destroy. – [Nathan] Just looking for someone I can just destroy with
– I’m ravenously hungry, I love to destroy, and if you wanna go to a craft brewery, I’ll do it.
– Not a huge beer drinker, but love to experience new things, and also destroy those things. – [Carolyn] So, this character is a very bad monster in the lore.
– In my design, yes. – [Carolyn] And I mean I think
you’re freakin’ killing it. – Your design is awesome.
– And the other one, Emrakul, was trapped in the moon for a time. – The moon?
– That’ll happen. – A Moon.
– A moon, okay. – [Carolyn] Not our moon. – Just, a moon?
– And then, this one was imprisoned for a few millennia by something called a hedron, which is like a pointy shaped rock. – [Jacob] It’s weakness is a pointy shape? – [Julia] Yeah, they were
like magically entrapped by some magical pointy shaped rocks. – [Jacob] Not a pointy shape! – [Carolyn] Is this
character wearing clothes? – [Julia] No, they’re just
kind of pink and purple, they don’t really wear clothes, but I like that you’ve got this– – Well.
– Going on. – No, this is the fashionable– – It’s rad.
– Yeah, they could, there’s no reason why they
couldn’t wear clothes. – [Nathan] This is a new skin – [Carolyn] Sometimes
they’re misunderstood, and worshiped as Gods, and then those Gods do wear clothes. So, this I think canonically checks out. – [Nathan] From a game play perspective, are these good cards that you’ve been giving us? – [Carolyn] Ulamog is a very good card. It’s very expensive, but it’s a very good card. – [Jacob] Is it the kind of card that you could build you deck around? – Sure
– Sort of. – [Julia] Yeah, sure thing,
it’s a legendary creature. – [Jacob] It’s the kind
of card you really just wanna build a deck out of. I really wanna settle down with this card. – [Carolyn] This is cool! – [Jacob] I really like this design, Julia – [Nathan] The cool thing about magic is it seems like it’s anything. – It’s everything
– They just take from any mythology, and a bunch of their own stuff. – [Carolyn] Some of the
coolest creatures are from totally made up from their own minds. This is Eldrador inspired
kind of thing, but. – [Nathan] Love any world
where there are Eldrataurs, and just cool cat men walking around. – Totally
– Just so many cat men. Just some strong beautiful cat men. – [Carolyn] There’s speculations that there’s gonna be
a viking inspired set. – Oh!
– Which will be pretty cool. – Oh, that’s fun.
– I love me some Norse mythology.
– Yeah, that’s right! – [Nathan] So, you’re
saying basketball maybe not? – [Carolyn] I don’t know about basketball – [Nathan] There should be
an entire basket ball plane of existence.
– They don’t do a lot of sports.
– Well, not yet. – [Carolyn] An entire
basketball plane of existence? – [Nathan] In Futurama we established that the Harlem Globetrotters are from outer space. So, I don’t see why, and space jam also there are
basketball playing aliens. We know this?
– Yeah. – [Carolyn] But, they
only play basketball, because they’ve stolen Earth
basketballer’s talents. – [Nathan] Well, that’s just
because they haven’t found an even more powerful
source of basketball talent. – The basketball dimension?
– The basketball mana. – Yeah.
– Yeah, sure. – You think there can
be a new type of mana? – Yeah.
– Orange? – [Jacob] Like you have mountains, and ya know planes, and then– – Courts?
– Courts, yeah. – [Nathan] Courts it’s the courts, yeah. – [Jacob] Yeah, you put down court. – [Carolyn] I mean, that opens
up a ton of possibilities. You’d have tennis mana, foosball manna,
– I love this. – I’m out of sports.
– See you’re talking about- – Tennis and foosball?
– Foosball, the two sports. (everyone intensely laughing) – The two genders
(group loudly laughing) Tennis and foosball. (Nathan mildly coughs) – [Julia] Oh my God. – [Nathan] That’s it,
that’s all the sports! – We got ’em!
– We got ’em! – [Carolyn] We solved it. – [Julia] Did I cover all the bases here? Was there anything else in the descriptor that I missed?
– Oh, baseball, that’s a third one. – It’s your baseball.
– That’s a big baseball! – [Carolyn] Her baseball,
baseball, baseball. – [Julia] If you’re looking
for more to draw each of the titans has– – A big ol’ dick.
– Trillions– – [Julia] Massive cock. No, trillions of minions.
– All right! – [Carolyn] Minions? – [Julia] No, like little
ones that they send out to- – [Nathan] You said
minions, Julia’s gonna draw- – Oh, no!
– She’s gonna do a minion. I don want to see a minion. – [Carolyn] I like minions. They’re cute.
– No they’re not! – [Carolyn] I don’t go on Facebook much, so I’m like less inundated by peoples cousins posting minion memes. – [Jacob] I don’t go on anymore, but I used to go on Facebook a lot and it was enough that I
got the bad part of it. – Julia!
– This is a cute one though. – [Nathan] Julie can’t remember
what anything looks like, but she can bust out a minion in seconds. – [Julia] They’re just tubes! – [Carolyn] They are tubes! That make me disturbed for them. – [Nathan] He’s so happy to be there! – [Group] Yay! – [Nathan] We know that minions serve whatever is the most powerful, evil- – That’s true!
– That exists, so. – [Carolyn] Economically. – [Julia] I’m taking this minion out. – No!
– No! – No!
– You drew it it must remain! – [Julia] No! – And it looks like–
– The baseball stays too. – They’re about to hold hands.
– Oh, no! – [Carolyn] Now it looks like a good dad. (everyone intensely laughing) – Let’s play catch son!
– Teachin’ ’em how to play catch. (laughing hysterically) – [Carolyn] It’s about to hold hands, It’s like, slide down my tentacles, wee! – I’m having a good time.
– This is great! – [Nathan] Oh, what a joy! Should we?
– Yeah, look it up. Let’s look him up.
– Wow, wow, wow. – [Jacob] So, it’s just a big crazy thing. – [Nathan] It’s just
sort of a large torso. – [Carolyn] You try to
describe it better than I did. – You can’t.
– You just said, a big crazy thing?
– Yeah. – [Carolyn] That’s your
prompt, a big draw, a big crazy thing.
– Let’s just draw a big crazy thing.
– It’s T-posing in this picture, it’s sort of a meme. It’s sort of doing the meme. – [Carolyn] It’s such a nasty card. When you cast this spell, destroy target permanent, gross. – [Jacob] That’ll do it, that’ll do it to ’em. – [Carolyn] When we say, gross, in Magic, that means that it’s really good. – It’s good gross.
– It’s like saying, something is sick, in the real world. – It’s nasty.
– But, it’s not actually disease ridden, you’d think it’s cool. – [Jacob] Unlike
chipmunks, which, you know. – [Nathan] I’d like to
destroy chipmunks, permanent. – Awe.
– Are we done? (air whooshing)
– This was so much fun. – You guys crushed it.
– We gotta get you back on. – Anytime!
– For more stuff. – I also about Tolkien, so.
– Hell yeah! – We’ll do some of that.
– Or X-men. That’s kind of it.
– We got it all. Food, different cheeses, you guys wanna draw
different kinds of cheese? – [Jacob] I think we should have you on for a sports episode.
– Leave it in the comments. (everyone loudly snickers) – [Carolyn] Where you just
have me describe sports, and you have to guess what they are? – Yeah.
– Oh, that is fun! – [Carolyn] There’s guys
and they’ve got helmets, and there’s a ball, what is it? Cricket. – [Julie] That’s so many sports! Wonderful.
– Oh, well– – [Jacob] Go watch
Carolyn’s stuff on Dorkly. On the Dorkly channel, she does gaming vids.
– Sure do. – [Nathan] You guys are in those, right? – Yeah.
– Yeah. We’re in one of them.
– Yeah, we were. – [Jacob] And I believe we are in a – Dream!
– Dream episode, – I’m gonna be in one.
– Tomorrow. – It’ll probably go up–
– Or in a couple days. – Before this episode goes up.
– Wow, space-time continuum. – [Nathan] Yeah, Ulamog is doing that. – Controls the channel.
– Because he’s a good dad, and he won’t let you watch the news too much. – Thank you Ulamog.
– Thank you Ulamog. – We’re sorry.
– Sorry! – Sorry!
– Sorry!

Artists Draw Pokemon As Dark Souls Bosses

Artists Draw Pokemon As Dark Souls Bosses


– [Jacob] Welcome to Drawfee,
where we take your dumb ideas. – [Julia] And make even dumber drawings. – I’m Jacob.
– I’m Julia. – [Karina] And I’m Karina. – [Jacob] And guys, we’ve come up with a combination of words– – [Julia] The crossover of the century. – [Jacob] That I think
you’re gonna like to hear. – Yes.
– And I guess, to be fair, it wasn’t us that came up with
this combination of words. It was a fan of the show, Ndidi Nahusi, who said, “Pokemon Dark Souls.” (Karina gasps) – [Julia] Love me some crossovers. – Wow.
– And they put a little smiley face.
– That’s the words they said. They said those three words in that order. And we all died and went to heaven, and now that’s where were drawing from (mystical harp music)
is from heaven. So the way this will work is, I’ve got a random number
generator from one to 807, the current number of Pokemon there are. – [Julia] Is that true? – [Jacob] Yes. – [Julia] Are all the
comments gonna be like, uh, actually.
– Excuse me. – [Julia] One of the
Pokemon only kind of counts. – I don’t fuckin’ care.
– It’s technically 808. – [Jacob] I couldn’t care less. We’re doing–
– Ash died, and his ghost came back,
and it became a Pokemon. (Karina laughs) – [Jacob] We’ll include Ash’s
ghost Pokemon on the list. I’m gonna do a random number, and then use that Pokemon.
– Use. – [Jacob] And then I’m gonna
do a Dark Souls boss on it. – [Julia] Yeah, use it. – [Jacob] 227. – Wow.
– Oh, boy. – [Jacob] Okay, let’s see what I got. Pokemon 227, Skarmory. – [Karina] Skarmory. – [Jacob] That’s the metal bird. Now, this is a good
Pokemon for Dark Souls. – [Julia] Metal bird. – [Jacob] ‘Cause it’s an armor bird. – [Julia] He loves some death metal. – Yeah.
– And he loves– (Jacob growls) Yeah. – [Jacob] I feel like this is something that would already exist in Dark Souls. – [Julia] That’s true. – [Karina] Now you can make double sure. – [Jacob] Okay, I feel like– – [Julia] He has blades for wings. – [Jacob] He does have blades for wings. – [Julia] I guess if he is,
yeah, it says armor bird. I do wanna say that one of his abilities appears to be weak armor,
which, he’s an armor bird? That seems counter-productive. – [Jacob] I think that he maybe weakens the armor of other birds. (lighthearted whistling music) – [Julia] ‘Cause they look at his armor, and they’re like–
– And his armor can’t be too heavy, he’s gotta fly. – Yeah, he does have to fly.
– That’s true. Well, it’s like a plane.
– He’s gotta get places. – [Julia] You know? – [Karina] I don’t understand
how planes work. (laughs) – [Julia] Fair. People who design planes don’t
understand how planes work. There is an ongoing debate
on what the prevalent rule that keeps planes up is. Is it the updraft, or is it, I don’t know.
– Well, that’s kinda of– – Engine power.
– A scary thought. I would think at least
the people who make them would know what they’re doing. – [Jacob] The people that make them don’t know the answer to that question? – [Julia] No, they don’t know which rule is the more important one. (Jacob and Karina laugh) – [Jacob] Well, whatever it is, they’re good at making
planes stay up there. – [Julia] Yeah. – [Jacob] At least, that’s good, right? – [Julia] Yeah. – [Karina] (chuckles) Yeah. – [Julia] I choose to
read this Pokemon’s name as Ska Roomry. – [Karina] Roomry? – [Jacob] So you’re saying
your preferred method is Ska Ermery? – [Julia] Yeah, he’s a big fan of ska. – [Jacob] It’s got such a good flow to it.
– Then what’s the Ermery part? – [Julia] That’s his name. – [Karina] Ermery? – [Julia] Yeah, and then
he joined a ska band, and he was like, “Hey,
call me Ska Ermery.” (Jacob and Karina laugh) – [Jacob] This bit sucks. So I’m trying to figure out how to really make this metal as hell. And I think sword tail. I want it like a big bird, sort of more like a drake, though. – [Karina] Sword everything. – [Jacob] So dragony, sword
everything is pretty good. – Sword everything.
– I do like that. – [Jacob] Sword are everything. (Karina laughs) I mean, these things over here
are definitely big blades, just like they are on Poke,
on the Poke themselves. – [Julia] So with Dark
Souls, I like to work my way from lore back into
design of these things. What if Skarmory is the embodiment of all of the dudes that
went to go fight someone, and their weapons that got left behind. – [Jacob] Became a bird. – Became a bird.
– Ooh. – [Jacob] I mean, that’s pretty rad. I don’t know why that would happen, but I like that it did happen. – [Julia] I don’t know
enough about Dark Souls to make this connect to the cannon.
– I mean, if we are coming up
with some bullshit like, the weapons were of great warriors, and they were imbued with
the spirits of the warriors, but now that the warriors are
gone, the weapons still roam. – [Julia] Yeah, and then a
bird that liked shiny things came over and was like, “I’ma possess that.”
– A bird happened. – [Jacob] Yeah, a bird fell
into the pile of weapons noise was like, “Shit!”
and then tried to get away. – [Julia] Like a cat when they
get tape stuck to their paw. – [Karina] Aw. – [Julia] And they just
sprint all over the place. – [Jacob] Yeah, exactly like that. But it’s a bird covered in blades. – [Julia] Yeah. – [Jacob] I could definitely
see something like this existing in Dark Souls. – [Julia] Yeah. – [Jacob] Or it could even be like a bird or a dragon or something
that was experimented on for battle purposes, as you do. – [Julia] Right. – [Jacob] And then whoever
was doing the experimenting is long since gone at this
point, but the bird still lives. And it’s just out there terrorizing. – [Julia] Right. – [Jacob] Doin’ some real messed up shizz. You’ll notice that this
bird is called armor bird, and so far I’ve only given it blades. – [Julia] Ska. You didn’t address–
– Stop saying ska! – You gonna give it some ska?
– You didn’t address the ska. – [Karina] You gonna give it
a little trumpet or somethin’? – [Jacob] This will not have a trumpet. Take this seriously. – [Julia] Did you know that
ska came before reggae? – [Jacob] Take this seriously. You’re currently taking it
un-seriously, which I hate. (Julia sniggers)
So I think, it’s not a ska bird! – [Julia] It’s a ska bird. – [Karina] I really like this
image we have as reference. I never noticed how
much Skarmory was shaped like a bowling ball pin. – [Julia] Oh, he is, though. – [Karina] Yeah. – [Jacob] Yeah, he super is. – [Julia] Oh, I kinda love him now. – [Jacob] You hated him before? – [Julia] Hey, you know what
happens a lot of the times at bowling alleys? Ska concerts. You know what a lot of ska people wore as shirts in the ’90s? Bowling shirts. I’m seeing a connection here. And I want you to acknowledge it. (Julia and Karina laugh) Don’t look at me like that. – [Jacob] I’m over here
trying to make a good drawing for the fans to enjoy. – [Julia] You’re not trying, you’re doing. – [Jacob] And you’re back here talkin’ some real ska bullshit. Although, you know, you
have got me thinking. – Mm-hmm.
– Oh boy. – [Jacob] About what
a ska armory would be. Like if the great ska wars happened, and like all of the ska
guys to go armor up. – [Karina] Go to war? – To go to war.
– You know that so many trumpets would be made into helmets. – [Jacob] It would definitely
be like a lot of horn-related. – [Julia] Yeah. – [Karina] That’s really the gist of it. – [Jacob] So here’s a spooky head. Oh, and it’s got these neck things going on, too.
– Yeah, it’s got a little choker.
– Yeah, that’s cool. Yeah, that’s pretty cool, I’d say. – [Julia] I’m looking up ska facts. – [Jacob] Julia, I need you
here, present on this episode. – [Julia] I’m here present on the episode. I’m lookin’ up ska facts.
– You’re over there giggling to yourself at ska
facts that you’re reading off of your phone.
– Because the first–
– Those are only tangentially related to what we’re doing. – [Jacob] I’m trying to draw. I can only talk so much. Karina’s over here doin’ her dang best. – The first–
– I’m really not. – [Jacob] You’re reading ska– – The first result–
– Karina’s over here giving 30%. (Karina laughs) – [Julia] The first result for ska facts is ska facts for kids, and I don’t know why it’s
specifically for kids. And that made me laugh. – [Karina] It just means they
don’t have any curse words in them, for kids. – [Jacob] Yeah, it’s ska light. You know, I think if
you’re on a dating website and you’re about to go out with a guy, but you’re worried that he may have formerly been a ska dude, you can look up his Ska-fax history report and get that information
about his past ska endeavors. (Karina sighs heavily) – [Julia] You know what
you do when you want, after you look up your Ska-fax about this dude you wanna date? You go pick it up, pick it pick. (Karina giggles) – [Jacob] You’re an asshole. (Julia and Karina laugh) – [Julia] Jacob, you’re
doin’ a wonderful job with this Skarmory.
– Thank you. – [Karina] With this ska bird. – [Julia] This ska bird. – [Jacob] Feels like a plumage situation going on.
– Yeah, oh. So that’ll be a horn–
– It looks like the– – [Karina] With a megatooth ska. – [Jacob] Oh, (mutters) god damn it. (group laughs) I do wanna make it a horn, though. – [Karina] I guess it’s not a horn, but I thought it was a horn. – [Julia] I like it. I mean, it’s giving me curling vibes, like the handles that’s on the
top of the stones in curling. – [Karina] Oh. – [Julia] That’s what I was thinkin’ of. – [Jacob] That’s what you
were thinkin’ of, huh? – [Karina] This bird’s got
a lot of stuff going on. It’s got ska, it’s got sports. (laughs) – [Jacob] This bird’s got hobbies. (Julia and Karina laugh) – [Karina] It’s part
bowling, part curling. – [Jacob] This bird’s got shit to do. – [Karina] Never a dull
day with Ska Ermery. (Julia laughs) – [Jacob] Perfect, flawless. So happy to be here with both of you. I miss Nathan. (group laughs) Nathan wouldn’t be doin’ this. He probably would be doin’ this. – [Julia] He would be
making up more clever puns. – [Jacob] That’s probably also true. Oh yeah, so if we make it like plates, like actual plates that are
strapped onto this bird. – [Julia] This was like
someone’s steed into battle. – Yeah, I think that’s–
– This is like a dragon version of Sif. – [Jacob] Siv. – Is it Sif, Siv?
– Sif. – [Julia] Did I say the right thing? – [Jacob] Yes, you did. I’m proud of you.
– Yay! – [Jacob] This leg is not right. – [Karina] I think they have longer legs, like this is an action shot. – Wait, what do you mean?
– If you want that as an option, I think you have
artistic license on this leg. – Oh, then I can–
– Yeah, you could give him some dope haunches. – [Jacob] Well, he has a dope haunch. It’s right here. – Yeah, but really–
– I’m just trying to decide which way–
– Lean into it. – [Jacob] The leg goes, you know. – [Julia] I like him going
in to reach in for something. You know, his claws are front. – [Jacob] Like he’s comin’ down. Maybe he’s doin’ a dive.
– Yeah, he’s about to grab somethin’ off the ground. – [Jacob] Yeah, he’s doin’ a dive. This is all metal. – [Julia] This bird should
definitely avoid all fish. – [Jacob] There’s blades. – [Julia] He’ll just drown. – [Jacob] Yeah, this is
not an ocean-faring bird. This bird hunts on land for big
prey, like bears and tigers, and man, the most dangerous game. (Karina laughs) It’s doing a big dive. You’ve gotta watch out for the big dive. – [Julia] Yeah. – [Jacob] So that’s gonna be comin’ up like this.
– That’s when he jumps off stage during the ska concert, and he does a crowd dive,
but it’s like a deep dive. So he really just goes
as far back as he can into the crowd.
– Yeah. – [Julia] It’s a deep dive. Hey, you want me to deep dive
on some ska facts for ya? – [Karina] Only if they’re for kids. – [Julia] I don’t think
Jacob’s talking to me anymore. – [Karina] Hey, hey Jacob. Hey Jacob. – [Jacob] I’m done
speaking in this episode. (Jacob and Karina laugh) I’ve done what I can do, and
it wasn’t enough to stop you. I think that the tail has a shield on it. – [Karina] The tail on the Poke has a pretty interesting shape. – [Jacob] Yeah, but I’m ignoring that. – [Julia] He has like a bottle opener for a tail.
– Oh, he does! – [Jacob] Yeah, it does
look like a bottle opener for crackin’ open a brewski. – [Karina] Literally what it is. – [Jacob] No, I want the
tail to have a big shield so it can block.
– Oh. – [Jacob] ‘Cause it’s an armor Poke. – [Julia] Yeah. – [Jacob] As we’ve established, as I’ve perfectly demonstrated here, this Pokemon is an armor Pokemon. – [Karina] Oh, this is one
of those new legendaries. – [Jacob] Oh yeah, Sword and Shield. And this one’s got
swords, it’s got shields. – It’s got everything!
– It’s got everything. This is gonna be the one in
the other version they make that has like all of ’em, which everyone is jokingly
saying is gonna be Pokemon Gun, which I do think is very funny. And I hope that’s what they do. – [Karina] I do like
the fact that the shield is on the back-most part of the body. – (laughs) Yeah.
– Yeah, what’s it blockin’? – [Jacob] Well, it swings forward to block if it needs to, you know. I feel like this Pokemon’s
got a lot of mobility. So it can spin around.
– It’s very flexible. – [Jacob] It can deflect, deflect blows. Okay, I think this is about done. It’s think this is Dark Souls Skarmory. – Yeow.
– And in the render, it’s gonna have all these scuffs and dirt. And it’s gonna be old and shitty, and the helmet’s gonna be cracked, all that cool stuff everyone
likes from Dark Souls. – [Julia And Karina] Yeah. – [Jacob] When things
are all old and rusty and dusty and busty. All right, I think I’m done. – Yeah.
– Sweet. – [Jacob] Karina, do you
wanna jump in and do one? – [Karina] I wanna jump in and do one. – [Jacob] You should jump in and do one. – [Karina] I’m comin’. – [Julia] All right, Karina, pull up your random number– – Okay.
– In the generator. – 631.
– 631. – [Group] Heatmor! – Oh, oh, it’s a little–
– Oh. – Oh, it’s–
– Oh. – [Karina] What do you call it? – Oh, he rules.
– And he’s a– – [Julia And Karina] Anteater! – [Jacob] He’s an anteater with fire comin’ out of his little face. Oh, I like this one.
– Oh, yeah. This rules. – [Jacob] This guy’s cool. – [Karina] I feel like I’ve seen this one like once ever in my life, maybe. I’m just gonna get a little body in, get a little somethin’ going.
– I love this, this squat that this anteater has. – [Jacob] I mean, there are
some silly-looking enemies in Dark Souls, also. – [Karina] I imagine. – [Jacob] And sometimes
that’s even scarier. ‘Cause you’re like, this
is a scary, weird world, and somehow this stupid, idiot thing has survived this whole time to come at me in the
damn sewers or whatever. – [Julia] I’m trying to remember any dumb Dark Souls enemies. And the only one that I can think of is very funny to just run past that I saw on the Summer Games Done Quick, which is the dudes that just
have big lumps on their backs, and they just look at you like (groans). – [Jacob] Oh yeah, the egg-a-men. – [Julia] The egg-a-men. – [Karina] The egg-a-men? – [Jacob] They got eggs on their back. – Aw. (laughs)
– Because they worship the spider queen. – Oh, is that their deal?
– Ah, oh, ew. – [Jacob] Yeah, they’re like
disciples of the spider lady. And they worship her. And so they get egged, basically. – [Julia] Yeah. – [Jacob] And in the game,
you can also get egged. – Oh.
– And if you do, and you don’t do anything
about it for long enough, eventually, your head turns into an egg. – Oh.
– Wow. – [Jacob] And you can’t
wear a helmet anymore, but you can squirt a little
leech out of your head– – Ew.
– At enemies. – [Julia] Nice. – [Jacob] So that’s somethin’. – [Julia] That’s very Binding of Isaac. – [Jacob] That’s a
lesser-known thing you can do in Dark Souls is make your head an egg and squirt shit at foes. – [Karina] What a good feature. (laughs) – [Jacob] Yeah, it’s a
pretty good feature, I think. – [Karina] Here’s a form. – [Jacob] This is a good form so far. This is already spooky-lookin’. – [Julia] It’s nice and lumpy like a Dark Souls.
– It’s got– – [Jacob] Yeah. – [Karina] Big ol’ claws. – [Jacob] I think you went a
good, you made a good decision in taking the shape of the exisTing thing, and then being like, all right,
now how can I fuck this up? – [Karina] How do I make it lumpy? – Just push it.
– Yeah. – [Julia] Yeah. – [Jacob] As opposed to my method, which was let’s just
draw a whole damn thing, a whole new thing. – [Julia] Imagine this guy
just like, you turn a corner, and he’s just squattin’ like this. – Yeah.
– Right. – [Jacob] ‘Cause it’s
like, in the Souls games, everything’s kinda got its own history. And nothing’s really there for you. So you’d definitely be
underground in a burrow, and you would come across
these guys doin’ their thing. And they’d probably be very territorial. – [Karina] Mm-hmm, he’s gonna be real big. Like if this is a little
burrow, here’s your little– – Oh.
– That looks good. – [Karina] I don’t know
which ones these are. Are they stalag– – [Julia] Those are stalactites. – ‘Tites?
– Those are ‘tite. – [Julia] Those are ‘tites. – [Karina] (laughs) Thank you. – [Jacob] So you come into what to you is a very big chamber. – [Karina] Yeah. – [Jacob] But to this fellow– – [Karina] He’s doing a little squat. – [Jacob] He’s gotta
really squish in here. – [Karina] Yeah. – [Jacob] And he hates it. And so he’s gonna kill you.
– I see he has a little, is it a little butt pipe? – [Jacob] It looks like an exhaust pipe on his butt.
– Oh, my goodness. This guy’s got it all. He’s kinda enginey, I guess. – [Jacob] He is kinda enginey. – [Karina] I don’t know what
is going on in his lower front. – [Jacob] Oh, that’s his dick. – [Karina] There’s two. – [Jacob] Yeah, yeah,
unfortunately, there are two. – [Julia] He’s bi-dickle. (Karina laughs) That’s what that’s called, right? – He’s bi-dickle.
– That’s the term. (group laughs) – [Jacob] It’s like a bicycle that I have no interest in riding. I like, on the original
one here, this armor, this wrist armor that he already has. – [Karina] I think it’s like, ’cause he looks kind of machiney. – Yeah.
– So that’s what? It’s like car parts. – [Julia] I am getting
some real Knuckles energy out of this dude. – Yeah, there is some.
– Knuckles from Sonic. – [Jacob] There is some
Knuckles energy for sure. I think the lore would be, in this game, these moles kind of crawl
through the deep earth, and they run through
remnants of old society, and they get all these
parts attached to them from crawling through them. So they get covered in
all these machine parts. – [Julia] Mm, I was
thinking that maybe this was a creature that the people who were trying to make
these big, cool castles used. They took these cool,
almost god-like animals, and they strapped a bunch of shit to it to make it effective for building castles. And then they only remain,
and the people don’t. – [Jacob] See, that’s good, too. That’s also good lore.
– Ooh. – [Julia] That feels Dark Soulsy to me.
– Maybe you have to ask the self, ask the self.
– Ask the self. – [Jacob] Confront the self, and ask it. – [Julia] Have you ever
asked the self, self? – [Karina] What do you know
about Pokemon and Dark Souls? All the time. – [Jacob] It’s gotta be ambiguous, though, you know.
– Well, this some twisted metal shit, like
castle parts, I think. – Yeah.
– Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah. – [Jacob] It’s like, did people
do this to this creature, or did it do it to itself? And we don’t know. We can’t ask it. I’m getting, all of a sudden–
– I definitely– – Digimon vibes. – [Julia] A little bit. – [Karina] I feel like
some of the newer Pokes lean a bit more Digimon. – [Jacob] Lean Digi. – [Karina] Like the sword
dog and the shield dog, those are very Digimon to me. – [Julia] Because they just have a bunch of filigree on them. – [Jacob] Yeah. – [Julia] And just like, shapes. – [Jacob] But they’re
not wearing enough jorts or bondage clothes to be Digimon. – [Karina] Once they
start wearing clothes. – [Jacob] Yeah. – Jorts, some bondage clothes.
– Some jeans. (laughs) – [Jacob] Does Digimon always digivolve from cute little animals
to bondage furries? – [Karina] Yeah, or like an
animal wearing jorts with a gun. – [Jacob] Yeah. (laughs) Or just like– – [Karina] Those are the two kinds of Digimon.
– A man. Sometimes they just become
a man, like a big man? – [Karina] Yeah. – [Jacob] A big, nude man? – [Karina] Was Angemon
wearing jorts or jeans? – [Jacob] Angemon is wearing, he’s got clothes.
– He’s wearing something. – He’s got–
– But he has jean energy. – [Jacob] Yeah. I gotta look him up. – [Julia] I’m looking up some Digimon now, because surprise, surprise,
wasn’t into Digimon either. (Karina chuckles) Wow, they’re just, they’re somethin’, huh? – (laughs) I really–
– This one’s just a weird baby dino. – [Karina] What, the most popular one, the most famous Digimon? – [Julia] Agumon? – Yeah.
– Yeah. Agumon’s the Pikachu–
– Welcome to the Digimon episode you’ve always asked for. – [Jacob] Yeah, welcome
to the Digiverse, idiot. – [Julia] Welcome to the half
ska, half Digimon episode of Drawfee.
– You thought you were getting Dark Souls and Pokes? Surprise.
– You’re getting ska and Digimon. (group laughs) Oh, are you gonna get–
– He has some shit on his back. – [Jacob] Yeah, he has
some real shit goin’ on that I’m uncomfortable with.
– I’m just gonna make it into a castle. ‘Cause I don’t know better.
– Oh, I like that. That’s cool. – [Karina] Yeah, he’s just got
shit on his back, poor guy. – [Jacob] Yeah, no wonder he’s so mad. – [Karina] He has to crawl around. He does have a very naturally angry face. – Yeah.
– Yeah. – [Karina] I do love his
cartoony face in the actual art. – [Jacob] Yeah, he’s got
a very not-havin’-it look that I appreciate a great deal. – [Karina] I feel like that a lot. – [Jacob] Yeah, this
has got Karina energy. – [Karina] This one was meant for me. This is my lad. – [Jacob] This is a beautiful lad. And just an exhaust pipe in his ass. – [Julia And Karina] Yeah. – Poor guy.
– Just right in there. That’s not good. – Oh.
– That can’t feel good. – [Julia] I imagine that when he poops, it comes out and just goes, foomp! – Yeah, it just flies out.
– It’s just a ball of it. It sounds like one of those
tennis ball shooting machines. – [Julia] Yeah, foomp! On a bad dietary day, it just goes, foomp, foomp, foomp-foomp,
foomp-foomp, foomp-foomp, foomp-foomp, foomp.
(Karina groans) Oh, gross.
– Some shit on his back. – [Jacob] Yeah, castle shit. – [Karina] Castle shit. – [Jacob] Maybe some
tiny people live in it. – [Karina] (laughs) Maybe. – Probably not.
– Yeah, ’cause this’ll be you. – [Jacob] Oh, so you’re
one of the tiny people that could live in it. – [Karina] Yeah, you could just hop on in. Here, you got a little fire, so. – [Jacob] And so I guess, according to this image
of the original Poke, the fire just kind of squirts
out of his little mouth. – [Julia] Yeah, it definitely comes out like a (whines).
– That’s his little mouth. – [Jacob] He’s just
got bad dietary issues. – [Karina] This guy’s kind of just a mess. – [Jacob] There’s a fire
inside of him always because of his bad stomach. And he has to get it out
either through mouth fire or the butt launcher. – [Karina] Oh, he fills
the tunnel with smoke. – Oh yeah, that sucks.
– Disgusting. He really just has a tough
time with things, poor guy. – [Jacob] I just wanna be left alone. – [Karina] He’ll have
some chains and shit. – [Jacob] I’m very uncomfortable. – [Karina] Now I’m just making
it difficult for myself. – [Jacob] No, chains are good. – [Karina] A problem for later. – [Jacob] Chains are very Dark Souls. Shit chained to other
shit is very Dark Souls. – [Karina] And I guess
he still has stripes. – [Julia] It could be like big scars. – [Karina] Ooh. – [Jacob] Now we’re into some business. – [Karina] So he has them going this way, but, ooh.
– We’re into some dirty business here. Oh yeah, this is cool. – [Karina] Another thing
I’ll make look cool later. (group laughs) – Yeah.
– This is gonna be real, real dirty, ’cause all he does
is crawl around underground. – [Jacob] Yeah, and get
castle parts chained to him. – [Karina] Yeah, poor guy. He really just has a lot of trouble. – [Julia] This line on his
mid shin makes it look like he has shin-high socks on.
– Yeah, it does look like he’s got on some
socks, some high socks. – [Karina] I just feel
like that sometimes. You’re crawling around underground. You still need to look
cute, though. (laughs) – [Jacob] Yeah, feel cute today. – Mmkay, there.
– Yeah. I think that’s–
– There is Heatmor. – [Jacob] That’s awesome. – [Julia] I love it. – [Jacob] It’s got that energy where you–
– Lookin’ spookier. – [Jacob] You like it
and you’re scared of it. But also, you feel bad for it. And that’s very Dark Souls. – That’s my boy.
– Yeah. – Yeah.
– Wonderful. – All right, my turn!
– Thank you. – Get in.
– Get in. Whoa.
– Time for me to get my number. And what is it? – [Jacob And Karina] 595. – [Karina] Oh, this is the thing! – [Jacob] Oh, this guy’s so cute! Oh, he’s so cute.
– Oh, it’s a little baby. It’s a little hairy baby. – [Jacob] It’s Joltik, by the way. We didn’t say that.
– Yeah. – [Jacob] We just said how cute he is. Oh.
– What the hell am I supposed to do with this? – [Jacob] Baby. – [Karina] Make it Dark Souls. – [Jacob] There’s some
cute things in Dark Souls. – [Karina] Yeah, and put a chain on it. (Julia sighs)
(Jacob and Karina laugh) – [Jacob] Put a chain on it. – [Karina] Just lay it across it gently so you don’t hurt him. He’s a baby. (laughs) – [Jacob] Please be nice to baby, Julia. He’s an electric bug. – [Julia] He’s an electric bug. Electric. – [Jacob] It’s electric. – [Julia] Okay, I have an idea. – Wonderful.
– So excited. – [Julia] I have an idea
that will make Jacob unhappy, but I’m going to do it.
– What? – [Karina] Yes. – [Jacob] Why would you make me unhappy? – [Karina] It’s the make
Jacob unhappy episode. – [Julia] I’m gonna start
off with a shape here. – [Jacob] Now. – [Karina] Now, this– – [Jacob] The shape you’ve started with– – [Karina] Is this
shape gonna be something I expect it to be? – [Jacob] This is a head. This is a person’s head–
– Yeah. – [Jacob] That you’ve started with. – Oval.
– You’ve started with a person’s head. – Oval.
– Yeah. Yeah.
– It’s an electric bug. – It’s an electric–
(Karina laughs) – [Jacob] But you’ve started
with a person’s head. – [Julia] Electric bugaloo. – [Jacob] Is this gonna be like the person that the bugs are one? – [Julia] No. – [Jacob] Is it like a
“The Mummy” situation, like they crawl on you
and you’re like, “Oh no!” and you have to roll to get ’em off? – [Karina] Yeah, or that scary story where they nest inside that girl’s face? – [Jacob] Yeah, is it
like that scary story where they nest inside that girl’s face? – [Julia] What? – [Jacob] From “Scary
Stories to Tell in the Dark”? (Karina slurps) That the sound it probably makes. Scary scories to scare in the dark.
– Oh my god. Is this Spider-Man? ♪ Spider-Man ♪
– Yeah. ♪ Spider-Man ♪
– You’re drawing Spider-Man. – Uh, no.
– You didn’t tell me that Spider-Man was in Dark Souls. – [Jacob] There’s a good
reason I didn’t tell you that. Okay, this is a pro wrestler. (Karina laughs) I’m intrigued to see where you’re headed with this.
– So is it a knight that’s Joltik?
– Yeah. – [Jacob] Is it gonna
be like an armor set? – [Julia] Yeah. – [Jacob And Karina] Oh. – [Julia] I wanna take
the feel of Joltik– – Soft?
– And kind of makin’ it– (Karina laughs) Do you see that thing and think soft? – It looks very soft.
– I’m not thinkin’ it’s– – [Karina] Yes. – [Julia] I didn’t see
soft when I saw this guy. – [Jacob] It looks like it’s covered in the most beautiful hair. – [Julia] I have a different thought– – Yes?
– About that. I thought it was just very
spiky and bad to touch. – [Jacob] You look at that and you think, bad to touch?
– Oh, like it’s, oh– – Yeah.
– Like its spikes are hard. – [Julia] Like a heg-hog. – [Karina] A heg-hog? (laughs) – [Jacob] It does not
look at all like that. It looks like a soft, fluffy friend. – [Karina] Follow your heart, Julia. – [Jacob] Hearts can be wrong. – [Julia] We’ve established
that my heart is wrong. – It’s like the–
– In many years of this show– – [Jacob] The Celine Dion
song, My Heart Will Go Wrong. This looks kind of like
some Howl armor right now. – [Julia] It does. (Jacob caws) I’m gonna have to figure out how to make it a little bit more bug-like. – [Jacob] Yeah, you’re
gonna have to bug it up. So this helmet, does it have hair? – [Julia] No, it’s like armor plates. – [Jacob] It’s got hair. This helmet got hair. It’s like a JoJo situation. – Right.
– It goes straight into hair. – [Karina] Yeah, you’re not really sure where the armor plate ends. Is that still armor plate? – Yes.
– Or is it hair? – Oh.
– Don’t know. – [Karina] You don’t know? (Julia groans)
(Karina laughs) – [Jacob] What’s the knight’s
hair doin’ under there? – [Julia] It’s this, more or less. – [Jacob] So it fits the hair perfectly. – Yeah, yeah.
– Oh. – Completely sheathed around.
– Yeah. – Okay, that’s–
– It’s incredibly customized. – [Jacob] Yeah, that’s really convenient. – [Julia] Because the knight
really wanted head protection but really wanted to
keep that hair intact. – [Karina] Priorities. – [Julia] Priorities. – [Karina] Aw, his little face. – [Julia] I’m trying to
decide how to make this a little bit more
bug-like but also Joltiky. – [Jacob] Yeah, we gotta
get some lightning stuff goin’ on here, some lightning theming. – [Julia] Yeah. – [Jacob] I mean, this looked cool. But it’s not cute, and
I don’t wanna hug it. – [Julia] There aren’t
many things in Dark Souls that you wanna hug, I’m assuming. – [Jacob] That’s probably right, I guess. – [Julia] Other than the onion knight, who I did kinda wanna hug. – [Jacob] Yeah, I do wanna hug him. He needs it. – [Julia] Yeah. Okay. – [Jacob] This would be
like, in Dark Souls games, they have NPC invasions, where computer characters
will invade you sometimes. And then if you kill them,
you can get special items. – [Karina] Like hugs? – [Jacob] Like hugs. This would be like one of those. This NPC would invade you, and
you’d have to fight him off. And if you beat him,
you’d get is armor set, the Joltik armor set. His name is Sir Joltik
from the lightning land. (Karina laughs) – [Julia] I need just a lot
of spikies on this dude. So I think, so he’s gonna have
shoulder armor, of course. – [Jacob] Yeah, naturally. – [Julia] ‘Cause he’s got a
set of arms and a set of legs. – [Jacob] Yeah, and they’re so cute. – [Karina] He is so soft. – He’s not soft.
– They’re so stubby. – [Julia] I don’t see him as soft. – [Karina] I’m almost certain it’s soft. – [Jacob] Yeah, I’m 100,000% certain. I’ve never been more certain of anything. (Karina laughs) – [Karina] There’s only one
thing I know in this world, and it’s that Joltik is soft. – [Jacob] Joltik is
soft, and Joltik is baby. (Karina laughs) Those are the only things
I know in this world. Oh, I like the under-pauldron. – Yeah, he’s got two layers.
– Big fan of the under-pauldron. – He’s got two layers.
– Ooh. – [Jacob] For when one’s not enough. – [Julia] Yeah, I feel like– – [Jacob] Keep that shoulder safe. – [Julia] I can’t really
square anything off. I gotta make it triangular. ‘Cause he’s very triangular, this boy. – [Karina] I guess. – [Jacob] But then he’s just gonna have little bitty arms and
legs like Joltik does. – [Karina] Yeah. – [Julia] Yeah, they end right here. (Karina and Jacob laugh) – Mm.
– Please leave it like that. – [Jacob] Oh, I’m gonna get you. – [Karina] Oh, I’m comin’. – [Jacob] I’m gonna get you so good. – [Karina] (chuckles) I’m Joltik. – [Jacob] There is
precedent for small people in the Souls series. – Yeah?
– In “Dark Souls II,” if you go to Belfry Luna,
I believe it’s called, a bunch of really little dudes attack you. – Really?
– Aw. – [Jacob] Yeah, they’re so little. And they really don’t like you at all. And they wanna get you. Joltik has never looked this intimidating. – [Julia] No. Okay. – [Karina] Joltik has only
ever looked like baby. – [Jacob] Yeah, big
baby, big beautiful baby. – [Julia] He has a little
pauldron on this side to get that above-the-hand spiky. And okay, so I wanna get
the lightning in here. – [Jacob] Yeah, you do. – [Julia] Because he’s a lightning bug. – [Jacob] Gonna have a lightning weapon? – I think–
– ‘Cause lightning weapons are common in the Souls games. – Oh yeah?
– Oh. – [Jacob] Lightning is one of the elements you can imbue weapons
with, so you’re on track. – [Julia] That’s cool. That’s-
– That’s cool. – [Julia] The only thing I’ve
been on track with, I think, in the history of this show. Well, I was going to say that maybe he just has a
lightning rod, you know. Or maybe it’s like a big
javelin or something. – Oh, I like that.
– Ooh. – [Julia] ‘Cause I don’t know
how this little guy attacks. – [Jacob] He just gets on you. – [Julia] He just gets on you. – [Karina] Yeah, he just tickles you. – [Jacob] And then he shocks
you with his little lightning. – Yeah.
– And you love it. (Karina laughs) – [Karina] And you are all about it. – [Jacob] Yeah. Like, ooh, tingles. – [Karina] Thanks, Joltik. – [Jacob] Thank you. – [Karina] You are baby. – [Jacob] And you give him a little kiss. – [Julia] Okay. – [Jacob] I would never send
this Pokemon into battle. – [Julia] No, you can’t. How could you? – [Jacob] I wouldn’t. – [Julia] Okay, I’m just
trying to wrap this up. This is my guy. – [Jacob] You’re gonna
put some lightning effects on that rod in post? – [Julia] Yes. – [Jacob] Yeah, you are. I know you are. – Nice, nice, nice.
– Gonna have some cool glow. – Wow.
– Some lightning glow. Yes! – [Julia] So he’s wearing a golden armor. – [Jacob] With blue highlights. – [Julia] With blue highlights, and yeah. – Yeah.
– That’s rad. Cool approach, Julia. – Thanks.
– I would not have thought of designing an armor set, but now I wanna do a whole
video designing armor sets based on Pokemon. – [Karina] Hmm. (group laughs) – Now–
– Stay tuned! – [Julia] We’re just gonna get a lot of suggestions for that. – [Jacob] Yeah, well, it’s cool. – [Julia] It is cool. I wanna do it.
– Not my fault it’s cool. I didn’t make it cool. – [Julia] I wanna do it again. – [Jacob] You made it cool. – [Karina] Yeah, you’ve already done it. – Yeah.
– Yay! Does that mean I’m not
allowed to do it again? – [Jacob] Yes, that’s what it means. – (laughs) Banned.
– No. – [Jacob] You’re off the show. – [Julia] No! – [Jacob] And on the streets. – [Julia] Oh no, I’ve
lost my apartment, too. I think this this is my guy. – Awesome.
– Wow. – Well, great work, everyone.
– Whoops. – [Jacob] This was fun. I like all of the things we
came up with, especially me. Good job, Jacob. – Your Ska Ermery?
– I love ska. – [Julia] Yeah. I love ska. – [Karina] I love Digimon. – [Jacob] Everyone go watch
Digimon and listen to ska at the same time. I’ve heard that it syncs up. You’ll find a hidden message.
– I’m surprised– – [Karina] ‘Cause that’s what
this episode was really about. – [Jacob] Yeah. – [Julia] I’m surprised that Digimon doesn’t have a ska intro,
considering, I think, it also happened in
the ’90s at some point. – [Karina] I’m trying to remember if there were any ska
songs that ever made it into the Digimon soundtrack. But I can’t–
– You know there are. – [Karina] I can’t remember
off the top of my head what it could’ve been.
– If you could remember off the top of your head,
I’d be so concerned. – [Julia] Is there a ska “Yu-Gi-Oh!” Song? – [Karina] No. – [Julia] Dang it. – [Karina] And I like Digimon. – Yeah, but if you–
– They had a soundtrack with “Kids In America” on it. – [Jacob] It did have
“Kids In America” on it. We have to end this episode now. – [Karina] Yeah, we’re kinda just drawing it out over nothing. (laughs) – [Jacob] Thanks for watchin’, everybody. We hope you enjoyed this. And if you’d like to
see us do more like it, let us know in the comments below, or let us know whatever you
wanna see us do in the future. – Yeah.
– Yeah. – [Jacob] And as always, we’re sorry. – Sorry.
– Sorry!

Artists Draw Goku in Different Styles

Artists Draw Goku in Different Styles


– [Jacob] Welcome to Drawfee
where we take your dumb ideas, – [Nathan] And make even dumber drawings. – [Jacob] I’m Jacob. – [Nathan] I’m Goku. – [Julia] I’m Bulma. (laughing) – [Jacob] Well, you heard it here. I’m joined by Goku and Bulma on this one. – [Nathan] Bulma, you
sound sick, are you okay? – [Julia] I’m stuck in a capsule. – [Nathan] That was bound
to happen eventually. You keep messing with those capsules. – [Julia] Too much Capsule Corp. – [Nathan] Too much Capsule Corp. It’s Nuesday.
– I age. – [Nathan] Did you just say, “I age”? – [Jacob] Yeah, this is
old, this is grandma Bulma. – [Nathan] I age too, you’re not special. – [Jacob] It’s Nuesday y’all. – [Nathan] It’s Nuesday,
I’m actually Nathan but I said I was Goku because– – [Jacob] Because today, we’re doing Goku. We’ve drawn some Gokus. – [Nathan] Oops, all Gokus. – [Jacob] Oops all Gokus, we’ve drawn him in different styles and we’re gonna take this time to present our beautiful Gokus to
one another for judgment and the best Gokus will go on
to the next round of Gokus. – [Nathan] America’s next top Goku. – [Jacob] Only one will
make it to the top. No, we just wanted to
take some extra time, have some fun with our drawing, so we got some speed draws here and we’re gonna play them for each other and talk about our process a little bit. – [Jacob] Oh boy, Nathan
do you wanna go first? – [Nathan] I’ll go first. I usually go first, so I’ll go first. – Let’s stay in order.
– Okay! Yeah, what style did you do, Nathan? – [Nathan] I did an attempt
to do a Don Bluth Goku. – [Jacob] Oh a Don Bluth. – [Julia] We’re all attempting,
we’re all trying our best. – [Nathan] Yeah, I, like
I said in the last one, I wanted to try and
increase the challenge level on each of these, and this
one was challenging for me, I will say. – [Jacob] Well that’s good,
that means you’re flexing those art muscles. – [Nathan] You can decide
whether I was successful or not, whether this is Bluthy enough,
but I’m gonna kick it off. – [Jacob] For those who might
not know, before you start, who’s Don Bluth? – [Nathan] Don Bluth, you
ever, you remember the movies, those movies that, they
weren’t Disney movies? – [Jacob] Yeah. – [Nathan] They occupy an
interesting brain space of “Was that even real?” – [Jacob] Yeah, because it wasn’t Disney. – It was not Disney.
– Like Anastasia? – [Nathan] Anastasia,
Rockadoodle, The Land Before Time, movies for children that
were like at once both darker and hornier than Disney movies. – [Jacob] Yes, they
were all dark and horny, and they all scared me when I was a kid. – [Nathan] Lots of real horny energy. I don’t think I got the
horny energy in this. You’ll see, lets just, let’s start it. – [Jacob] Yeah, okay,
I’m gonna count you off. – [Julia] Goku doesn’t
know what horny is anyway. – [Jacob] Yeah, he does not. Okay, three, two, one, go! – [Nathan] So I, I actually did a couple
practice versions of this. – He’s so squat.
– It’s a good pose already. – [Julia] Is this a young Goku? – [Nathan] I did end up
going with a young Goku. I also attempted to do an
adult Goku, but I thought the young Goku would be more fun to do. – [Jacob] Kind of capture
more of the energy you were looking for? – [Nathan] Yeah. I just wanted to put
him on his little cloud. And yeah, you know, it’s a– – [Julia] Ooh, look on
the turn on them eyes. That’s good. – [Nathan] Yeah, I’m trying to get– It’s mostly in the face,
you’ll see, you’ll see. (laughing) – You’ll see.
– You’ll see. – [Nathan] It’s just like super lumpy. I just wanted to talk about Don Bluth, because those movies, those movies, man. They really, they really affected me. We’re Back, that’s another one. – [Jacob] Oh yeah, I remember We’re Back. – [Nathan] Just everything
about those movies, it’s just, it’s like Disney,
but where Disney uses movement to be sort of
helpful to story telling. They’re very efficient with
the ways characters move. Bluth’s characters are just
sort of constantly moving. – [Julia] Yeah, did he do Thumbelina? – Yeah.
– God I hate Thumbelina. But I think you really
nailed it when you said it’s the kind of movies
where you go “Is that Disney? “No, it’s not Disney.”
– Kind of a vague memory. – [Julia] Like you think it’s Disney, you remember watching it as a kid, because every movie Nathan has listed, I’ve been like “On no, you’re
right, that wasn’t Disney.” And it did have a weird
bounciness to it, a flow. It’s almost like rotoscoped. – [Nathan] Yeah, it felt, I
dunno, there’s just something, there’s like a weird sick feeling you get when you watch
them, and I love it. This is an homage, and yeah,
I wanted to sort of try and see if I could translate
this anime hair into those sort of soft touchable– – [Julia] Yeah, he’s giving
me the prince from Thumbelina vibes a little bit. – [Nathan] That’s the thing, is anything that’s sort of weird and off about this, that’s just a Bluth– It was a safer choice than
trying to go full Disney with it, because yeah, the kids’
faces are weird and inscrutable in terms of how
old they’re supposed to be. – [Jacob] Yeah, it’s a
little Peter Pan-y, like you don’t know how long
this person’s been a child, but it seems too long. – [Nathan] And it feels
like I’m sort of thinking, I’m imagining a universe
where Don Bluth got the rights to Dragon Ball and made a Dragon
Ball straight to VHS movie, and this is sort of the way
he designs Goku for that. – [Jacob] I love what
you did with the hair. – Yeah.
– Thank you. – [Jacob] You managed to find
a way to make that function, and that’s probably one
of the biggest challenges. – [Nathan] Yeah, I was very
proud of myself with the hair, and then you’re gonna see
me just struggle so hard to figure out how to have
him holding his little staff, because I really wanted him
to be holding it horizontal for for sort of composition
reasons, and I just, I couldn’t get the hand right. – [Jacob] Do you mean vertical? – Well I started–
– You start vertical. – [Nathan] I start vertical,
and then I was like “That’s pretty good, but I wanna try–” – [Jacob] But what if I spent all my time? – [Nathan] Yeah, so here’s one version, and that’s actually not
bad, and then I dunno, I just overwork it. – [Jacob] Nathan, I think
you’re gonna find some really fun similarities in your drawing and mine. Namely in just fuckin’ around
with a hand holding a staff for way too long, because I also do that. – [Nathan] You did a staff? – [Jacob] I did a staff as well. – [Nathan] Yeah, it’s just,
it’s never gonna happen. I’m, spoiler alert, it’s not gonna happen. (laughing) – [Julia] You just see that
it very quickly just goes into a pocket that suddenly
exists, in his pant pocket. – [Nathan] It ends up so close
to how I have it originally, that all of this is, it’s just, yeah. – [Julia] You were
trying to grow, you know? You gotta test out some stuff. – [Nathan] I was tryin’ some stuff. – [Julia] And sometimes
it just doesn’t work, and you have to go back to
what you know, and that’s fine. It’s art. – [Jacob] I think the one you did with the horizontal staff was good. It’s one of those things where you know, you just get in your head about it. – [Nathan] I was too
close to the situation. Here’s what I end up going with. – [Jacob] But this also works. – [Nathan] Yeah, it’s fine. It’s fine, it’s just a lot
of time spent doing this. – [Jacob] You definitely,
I think it’s good for also when people watch these. They like to see us struggle
for a really long time to do something, and then
just give up on it entirely. – [Nathan] That’s what you
want, that’s what you wanna see. – [Jacob] That’s part
of the artistic process. There’s no artist that doesn’t do that. Sometimes you have a
beautiful day where everything goes your way, and then sometimes. – [Julia] Sometimes you’re
like “I don’t, how do, “what are faces even?” – [Nathan] What even are faces? – [Julia] How does the head sit on a neck, and where’s the neck sit from the head? Why does everything look so janky? – [Nathan] I think of all of
the aspects of this drawing, I’m the happiest with
how the face turned out. – [Jacob] Yeah, the face and the hair, the whole head is great.
– You nailed it. – [Nathan] That’s sort of where you get the stylistic things. I was trying to find examples
of how he draws kids’ bodies, and I sort of went with a Fievel. Sort of used the Fievel. – [Julia] Round teeth. – [Jacob] Yeah, the teeth are perfect. – [Julia] You really nailed
the certain aspects that make this a Don Bluth style. – [Nathan] Thank you. Awe, you guys.
– The round teeth, the weird chipmunk-like cheeks. – [Nathan] Yeah, they’re
so, I feel like I could’ve squeezed them out even more,
just really puffed them up even more than I did, but you know, we’re, we’re having fun. – [Jacob] Yeah, and it’s
all part of this process. – [Nathan] It’s all part of the Goku. – [Jacob] And I think the
process is good to see. – [Nathan] I think so. You don’t want it to just be
super good the entire time. You want to see us struggle. You want to see us get frustrated. – [Jacob] Because then you know it’s okay. – [Nathan] Then you know it’s okay. – Boy do we get frustrated.
– It is okay. – [Julia] Doing these styles is hard. – [Jacob] You’ve got a real
nice like three-dimensional feel to this, too, there’s
like good weight and shape to the body parts, the legs especially. – [Nathan] Thank you. I appreciate that. – [Jacob] Good job of adapting kid Goku’s real stock-ass bod. – [Nathan] It’s so hard to
not do Toriyama when you’re– Because I had some Gokus up as reference, and I was just like “I just wanna draw… “It’s perfect.” It’s a perfect character design. – [Jacob] You’ll see me
struggle with that as well. I start off going real Toriyama, and then I got to, you know. – [Nathan] You’ve got to scale it back. – [Julia] You know what my cheat was? My reference was a figurine. – Oh nice!
– Oh that’s smart. – [Julia] I used a figurine because then– – [Nathan] Then you’re
not beholden to that. – [Julia] Yeah, because
if I look at one art style while trying to be another art style, I’m just going to sink. – [Jacob] Also if you were
doing like adult Goku, there’s less essential
Toriyama-ness in the like, late Z designs, they’re a lot
more anime, like, you know. Normal anime style. Like, the old Goku is so
Toriyama, the kid one. – [Julia] Like he draws
people how he drew his cars, which are just like this
real like nonsensical squat thick thing. – [Nathan] You just wanna like take a little bite out of ’em, they all look like little dumplings. – [Jacob] Yeah, everything’s
a little stocky potato, I just wanna–
– I just wanna eat it. – [Jacob] I just wanna eat it up. It’s delicious. – [Julia] This is so good, I’m so impressed.
– Thank you. Oh my gosh. Yeah, I wasn’t sure like how
much to work it at this point, because there’s minimal
shading in animation because it’s hard to animate it, but
I do like having some amount of shading. So I sort of, I started using
the, because Titan AE has some shading in it, so I tried
to get some of that. I looked up again clouds,
there’s a scene in Fievel where he like falls into some
soot, so I used that as sort of a reference. – [Julia] It also looks like
a promo art amount of shading. You know, they jujh it up
a bit, but not too much. – [Nathan] And then I was like, so here’s where I’m like
“Okay, what else should I do?” So I do the shading, what I do is I block it in
with sort of solid shapes, and then I blur it to
get that sort of soft– – [Jacob] It does get
that vibe, doesn’t it? Look at you! – [Nathan] Then I think I was like “Oh I missed a few spots.” So then I just went in
with a soft brush and– – [Julia] Man I really want
to watch Anastasia now. – [Nathan] I just sort of
do some little adjustments, and then one other thing
that we do, I notice, in a lot of animation is
they use colored strokes on certain bits to give
them sort of a softer feel. – [Jacob] Yeah, totally. – [Nathan] I went in and did that, and I think that’s about it, yeah. – [Julia] This is great! – [Jacob] Yeah, great work! I feel like you’ve
definitely got that feel. The face really is spot on. – [Julia] Yeah, the nose, like I just, ah. Good job.
– There you have it. That’s my Bluth–
– Don Bluth Goku. – [Nathan] Don Bluth’s Goku
coming straight to VHS. Catch it, it’s probably gonna be sad. (laughing) – [Jacob] Sad and horny. – [Nathan] It’s gonna make
you sad and horny as a kid, and you’re not gonna know why. – [Jacob] You’re not gonna
know what to do with that. Awesome work, dude.
– Amazing. – [Nathan] Thank you! – So good.
– I love it. Jacob’s up next. – [Jacob] Yes! I did mine in the style of
Avatar: The Last Air Bender, and I really wanted to
do Goku as the Avatar. I put Goku in that world. It’s not like he’s drawn in
the style of it, which he is, but he’s really drawn as
if he were the Avatar. – [Nathan] It’s a genre and style change. – [Jacob] It’s a genre and
style shift on this one, so. I’ll go ahead and count you off. Three, two, one, go! – [Nathan] Ku. – Full disclosure–
– 3, 2, 1 Goku. – [Jacob] Goku. Today was not a good art day for me. I was struggling in a
major way, so you’ll see a few failed attempts. – [Nathan] That’s nice that you keep like, you’re being more honest than I am. I usually like to do a
couple failed attempts before I start screen recording for these. – [Jacob] Yeah, I wanted
to show the entire process, like starting out before
I was even warmed up, so. – [Julia] This is a tough angle. – [Nathan] I like this pose a lot though. – [Jacob] Yeah, I think
it could’ve been fun, but I wasn’t good enough today. (laughing) I wasn’t good enough today to do it. – [Julia] There’s a lot
of angles going on there. – [Jacob] And as you can
see, I was starting with the kind of chunky kid Goku look, because I really just love that look, and then I was thinking of like maybe– – Surfing?
– Surfing on like the glider. – [Julia] Oh, I thought he was lounging. – [Jacob] No, not lounging. Then I got rid of all that, because that wasn’t working for me. – [Julia] Straight chilling on the couch. – [Jacob] Also I wanted
to make him more like an older teen, sort of like
he’s coming into his Avatar-dom. This is my last attempt at a squanch one. – A squanch (laughing)
– Yeah. – [Jacob] I got rid of that real quick, I was like “Nah, fuck it.” – Because Teen Dok–
– Tedoku. – [Nathan] Keen, a keen
teen fighting machine. Because there’s kid Goku, and adult Goku. There’s no teen, there’s
no Goku the teen years. – [Jacob] There kind of is
towards the end of the original Dragon Ball, you get a bit of that, but I really wanted to like Avatar him up. So I’m starting with an Aang base here. – [Nathan] Yeah, you’re getting some strong Aang vibes from this. – [Julia] I have a
question from the people, because I know this will be
a question that pops up in the comments, also the fact
that you haven’t saved yet is stressing me out so much. – [Jacob] I wait a good
while before I save. – [Julia] Oh you’re stressing me out. Anyway, question from the people. How do you push through a bad art day when you’ve got to get art done? – [Jacob] I think you’ve
answered your own question. I had to get art done. (laughing) – [Nathan] We had to record today. I think we were all in
a similar sort of boat today with this. Julia, you were mostly done
with yours, but I remember earlier today, I was
talking with you and Jacob, and we were all just like
“Gotta get our Gokus done.” – [Jacob] So I decided that
there’s a lot of similarities between Goku and Aang. They’re both like the last
of a dead race of people. He thinks he’s the last Saiyan,
Aang is the last Air Bender, so Goku would definitely be an Air Bender. And also, he’s similar in
the sense that he’s like a happy-go-lucky doofus– – But he’s super strong
– Who’s super strong, and he also does attempt
to avoid confrontation a lot of the time. The difference is that Aang
tries to take a non-violent approach always, until
he really really can’t, and Goku like will beat an ass. – [Nathan] Goku wants to
see how strong someone is. – [Jacob] He’ll beat an ass,
and then at the end be like “Okay, well we can stop, I
don’t have to like murder you.” And then they’re like “No!
You have to murder me!” And he’s like “All right.” – [Nathan] Those clothing folds are really pleasant to look at, Jacob. – [Jacob] I was going for
the sort of monk robe look, but with the sort of emblem like he has, and I gave him the headband
so it would give an excuse for his hair to be sort
of pushed up and messy, and also still showing the arrow tattoo. – [Nathan] Oh very smart. – [Jacob] I made him a little
bit stronger than Aang. He’s a little thicker, a little stronger, a little bit bolder. – [Nathan] Kind of a Korra build almost. – [Jacob] Yeah, sort of, but
not even as broad as Korra. Not as strong as Korra.
– Not as strong as Korra, but stronger than Aang.
– But stronger than Aang. – [Nathan] Thicker than Aang. – [Jacob] And we’ve ended up
with sort of just a standing posture, because that was what
I was capable of doing today. Here’s where I fuck around
with his hand for like a full– – [Nathan] Oh we did the same thing! We really, this is good though. – [Jacob] It was good enough
already, but I’m gonna edit it a good few more
times before it’s done. – [Nathan] The thumb, thumbs are crazy. They never look like how you want them to, but that’s just what they do. – [Jacob] Yep. – [Julia] Fingers in general are weird. If you think about a hand
too long, it stops being like a hand, and just
starts being like a series of weird grabby tubes,
and you’re just like “This is nothing, this is nothing!” But it’s just because you’ve
been thinking about it so hard. – [Nathan] Jacob, you and I were so on the same wavelength
today, it’s incredible. – [Jacob] I ended up making it work for me by having that hand going backwards more, and then turning the hand more
so you see less of the finger and thumb. – [Julia] I like it,
it’s more dynamic anyway. – [Jacob] Yeah, I ended up
happy with how it came out. Got the belt in there of course. – [Nathan] Jacob I really like
the way you sketch things. I like this chunky brush. – [Jacob] Yeah, it helps
me to not be so particular. There’s the Nimbus cloud behind him, because I figure he would still ride that, because in the Avatar world,
people can’t really fly. I’m about to get into the
inking here I believe. Oh there’s the Air Bender. – Oh smart.
– The Air Temple logo. – [Nathan] I just left mine blank because I figured that’s what Bluth would do. – [Jacob] Probably. – [Nathan] We don’t have
time to animate this symbol in every frame. – [Julia] I like this square brush. – [Jacob] Yeah, I wanted to
use my sort of blocky one that doesn’t have any
line weight variation, because a lot of animation
cells use a brush with no variation. I ended up going a little too thick on it, which is one of my weaknesses. I tried to make it go way
thinner than I was comfortable with, because that’s, in animation, the lines are super thin, and
I thought it was the right weight, but then by the
time I realized it should be thinner, it was too late,
so I just kept going, but that’s art. – [Julia] Wow, it looks so clean. – [Nathan] It’s a real clean. – [Jacob] Yeah, it does give
a very clean animation cell type of look, which is
what I was going for. – [Nathan] What brush is this? – [Julia] It’s a big blocky brusher? – [Jacob] It’s a custom brush that I, I edited one of Kyle Webster’s
blocky painter brushes, and I took out all of the texture to it, and all of the variation,
and just made it like, it’s literally a rectangle
that does not change size or opacity or anything. And I just really like
it, because then I can, no matter how far zoomed out or in I am, I don’t have to adjust my pressure. I can use a really light
hand, and I get the same line no matter what, which
sometimes is what I want. – This looks great.
– Yeah. – [Jacob] At this point, I
was much more in the mood. Like, when it started coming together, I started feeling a lot better about it. – [Julia] Yeah, sometimes in order to get out of the art zone, like art rut rather, you have to draw something that you’re more comfortable with. – [Jacob] I just saved there, Julia. – [Julia] Oh my god,
you finally saved now? – [Nathan] You reached a point
where you wanted to save. – [Julia] Stressin’ me out! (laughing) But sometimes, in order
to get out of the art rut, you’ve just gotta draw something fun, and something that you enjoy,
and something you’re more comfortable with, and then
you can draw whatever. Reset yourself. – [Nathan] This Goku’s so chill. – [Julia] Yeah he is. – [Jacob] Goku’s got a chill vibe. Goku’s not an intense dude
until he has to do a murder. – [Nathan] Yeah, I love it. – [Jacob] I’m also realizing
as I look at it now, that the hand holding the
staff, it does almost look like it’s on backwards the way I drew it. – [Julia] A little bit. – [Jacob] Which I didn’t draw
it backwards in my mind– – [Nathan] No, that’s just
like the, there’s the thumb, and then there’s that
extra sort of, that bit. That like chunk at the bottom. – [Jacob] Looking at it
now, I probably would, if I were gonna work on this more later, I would dive back in and
make sure that was clearly not on backwards. So then at this point,
the line work is done, and I just jump into the shading, which I had a nice time
with, just a fun simple sort of shade job. – [Nathan] There’s some
shading in Avatar– – [Jacob] Yeah, there is. – [Nathan] Yeah, that’s nice. Avatar is such a pleasant– – [Jacob] I hit the wrong
key a few times and bring up that stupid F4 menu on the Mac, and you’ll also see me hit
F6 a few times and bring out the color pallet accidentally. I really start losing it
as I’m going along here. – [Julia] Yup, there we go. – [Jacob] There it was again. I was having fun with it,
and I think he does look like he matches the Avatar sort
of universe pretty well. – [Nathan] Definitely, yeah. – [Julia] Yeah, absolutely. This looks great. – [Jacob] I really had wanted
to get a more dynamic pose on this one, but like I said, some days, you just can’t. – [Nathan] Some days,
you just gotta go with what you can get, and what
you’ve got is very good. – [Jacob] Some days, you’ve
just got to do what you do. The tattoo’s coming in. – [Nathan] Give him the arrow. – [Jacob] Which I’ve gotta
work on, gotta sort of shape up there a little
bit, ’til it fits the head sort of the right way. – [Julia] Yeah. – [Jacob] Coming down the arm there. Yeah, and then I just do
some background stuff, which, again, you’ll see me doing a bit of messing around with this. I wanted like the Nimbus going behind him, and originally, I wanted to do it so that the black lines on the cloud
were like the green color they are in the show, which
I thought would look good, but then when I put in the
blue gradient background, I actually hated the way it looked. So you’ll see me go back in and
take out the line completely and decide to add in this
chunk shading in there to sort of differentiate–
– Differentiate! – [Jacob] The bottom from
the top, and then I remove– – [Nathan] But you still
have the little swirlies. – [Jacob] Yeah, I leave the
swirls, take out the lines. – [Nathan] Oh that’s really, I like that. – [Julia] Yeah, that’s a good idea. – Jacob, I like that.
– Made it look nicer. – [Nathan] That did make it look nicer. – [Jacob] I got a little
painty brush to do some of the sort of painter style clouds. – [Nathan] That’s what I
would’ve done if I had more time. I don’t know the brushes well enough to. – [Jacob] I honestly just picked a random, one of the real oils, Kyle’s Real Oils. And I fade the trail back
there, and that’s it. – [Nathan] That’s an Aang. That’s Goku. – [Jacob] That’s Gokaang. – Gokaang.
– Aangku. Aang-kun. (laughing) – [Julia] Well, Jacob, you
did a better job with the art than you did naming him, but. (laughing) It looks great.
– Yeah, this is fun. – [Jacob] Thank you. That means it’s Julia’s time! – Yeah.
– Hi. Are you guys ready to pivot? – Yes!
– I’d love to pivot. – [Julia] Because I hope
you’re ready for no lines! – Ooh!
– Okay, that’s uh, bold. – [Julia] I rely so heavily on
doing lines and dark shading, that I didn’t want to do
that this time, I wanted to get out of my comfort
zone, so I did kind of like, it’s hard to explain, but
it’s kind of a mix between Magic: The Gathering style,
and also the paintings that are hanging up in
the Dishonored games, which is art by Piotr Joblanski. – [Jacob] Okay, so you went
for something very specific that no one will know. – [Nathan] But everyone’s gonna love it. – [Julia] But you’re gonna
know it when you see it. – [Jacob] For our YouTube show! – [Julia] I’m sorry,
it’s, you could call it Magic: The Gathering style,
because it does have that vibe to it of like the darker cards and stuff. So I went with that. – All right.
– I’m very psyched to see it, I bet it’s gonna look dope. – [Nathan] Count us in. – [Jacob] Three, two, one, go! – [Julia] Okay, you can
see that I went with my big chunky green sketch lines that I do, which is usually what I use
when I’m trying to figure out just the composition. – [Jacob] You’ve already got like this is an adult body shape,
an angry adult body shape. – [Nathan] He’s wearing like Saiyan armor. – [Jacob] Yeah, we have
Saiyan armor going. So a bit of more of an aggressive look. Is that like splashing waves or something? – It’s rocks coming up.
– Oh, he’s creating a crater? – [Julia] Yeah, like maybe
he landed, and the rocks are kind of up and flying. Yeah. You can see this ugly– – [Jacob] This is a wretched
combination of colors. (laughing) – [Julia] It’s bad to look at. – [Nathan] That’s how you get
yourself to finish the drawing or painting. Get it off, get it off the screen! – [Julia] Get it away, get it away! So I wanted, in some Magic
cards, they do this really cool job of getting just very geometric, and that’s something that I wanted to do, as if they put tape on the canvas, and made shapes with that,
and I wanted to keep some sort of painted texture sky. I wanted to keep the textures in there, which is also something
I’m super uncomfortable with doing. – [Jacob] Here’s where
you paused for awhile. – [Julia] Here’s where I paused apparently for an eternity. – [Jacob] Okay, then you came back. – [Julia] I think I was
trying to figure out colors. – [Jacob] That’s where
I gave up. (laughing) – [Nathan] I wanted to
see if we also would just stay quiet for that bit. Everybody’s gonna be like
“Did the video freeze?” – [Julia] Yeah, I thought the video froze. I kind of forgot what was happening. – [Jacob] We all got silent
as the video stopped moving. – [Julia] I was like “Oh no,
I’ve messed up the recording “of my video.” – [Nathan] Holy shit,
Julia, this is so cool. I would be terrified of a
canvas that looked like this. I would not know what to do. – [Julia] I was very
uncomfortable, I can tell you that. And here’s me trying to
map out how to draw this. – [Jacob] Yeah, trying
to actually get the. – [Julia] Yeah, try to get this mood in, because I also had to make him
a little bit more realistic. Try to give him that Magic feel. I had to tilt it because the
chin was looking weird to me. – You got an elf ear.
– You gave him elf ears. – [Julia] I gave him a
little bit of a pointy ear because they’re Saiyans. – Fantasy…
– Fantasy Saiyan. All right, that’s kind of fun,
like a fantasy-eske version. – [Julia] Yeah, you know. I should probably fully disclose that I’m giving the people what they want. – [Jacob] Yeah, because
I’ve been thinking– – [Julia] I didn’t do a Goku. – [Jacob] This aint a Goku. – [Julia] I did a Vegeta. – [Nathan] This is my favorite Goku. – [Jacob] This is my
favorite Goku, Vegeta. (laughing) – [Julia] I knew that just
everyone would tweet at me saying “Do a Vegeta”, so I did a Vegeta. – [Nathan] Two Gokus and a Vegeta. Two and a half Gokus. – [Jacob] Pretty much, he’s
like half the size of Goku. – [Julia] So yeah, so
I had a reference photo of an action figure of Vegeta,
and then I changed the body positioning a little bit, and I obviously made him a little bit
more realistic more or less, and I had to sketch him out fully. – [Nathan] His widow’s peak doesn’t go like all the way down. – [Julia] Yeah, that was, I was like “How far do I go with this? “Where’s realistic, and
where’s just balding?” Which would’ve been fine, but
I didn’t feel like doing that. – [Nathan] You did such good
line work in your sketch, and you’re just covering it all up. You’re doing a bunch of stuff that, as an artist, is stressing me out. – [Jacob] Yeah, it stresses
me out too, definitely. – [Nathan] I know it’s
gonna turn out good, but boy oh boy. – [Julia] Yeah, you’ll see
me do a lot of push and pull, and I put the lines on top,
and then I put them back under, and then I just get rid of
them entirely at some point. – [Nathan] This is why Julia
always has to show hers last. (laughing) – [Jacob] Well she’s gonna be doing something buck wild every time. – [Nathan] Yeah, I love this. – [Jacob] And like, just
given the time frame we have, I can’t afford to try something like this. – [Julia] Well you mention
doing these episodes, and then I just go home and I
think about how I’m gonna get it done and what the process will be, so that when I come in to actually do it, I have an attack plan more or less. – [Jacob] But even with an attack plan, my plan wouldn’t matter,
it’s the execution that is the issue. – [Nathan] What brushes
are you using here? – [Julia] This, well
to block everything in, I used my favorite chisel shiv brush, which just gives you that
nice crisp solid line, and then for this, it’s a
push and pull with a lot of the oils. Oil lush with the texture
off, is this, and then I just marquee it so that I can
do one leg at a time, because there’s so much
overlap, and I want to make sure that they stay distinct,
because then I’ll go back in, and I’ll put some like rim lighting on it, or some bounce light, try
to make them stand out from each other. I’m going with some darker– – [Jacob] These muscles
are like popping so much. – [Julia] I really wanted
them to pop, because in Magic: The Gathering
cards, man do they love to make those come in and out, so. Yeah, so I just, I started
off with this base shadow, and then I go in with almost
a black to try to just really make everything shine,
and something that I did with this, is that I didn’t do highlights. – [Nathan] How long did this take you? – [Julia] Like an hour and a half. – That’s, mine took longer.
– Yeah, mine did too. – [Jacob] It took me longer to do mine, and it was something that is absolutely in my comfort zone. (laughing) – [Julia] Really the only
thing I had to figure out was how– – [Jacob] Shut up, Julia. (laughing) – [Julia] I didn’t have
to worry about drawing or anything, or in different styles, I just had to figure out a paint style. – [Jacob] That makes it harder! – [Julia] I just had to
put him in real anatomy! – [Nathan] This is so like– – [Jacob] Yeah, just
put him in real anatomy. Easy. – [Nathan] This is so good. This is so good! Like, I, I just don’t like, I don’t want to say anything,
I just want to watch it. – [Jacob] Yeah, those bodies
really like popping out now. – [Julia] I was really proud
of how his legs came out. Especially because I,
again, did not want to put any highlights in, so it
stayed in that darker mood. You know? – [Jacob] You did a good
job sticking to like the color pallet that you’re working with. Kind of this grayer area. – [Julia] I tried to really
stick to the left side of my color pallet, because
I use that bog standard color pallet that you’re given. – [Nathan] Bog standard? – [Julia] Bog standard. – That’s a phrase.
– Yeah. The one where it’s like
white to black on the left, and then the saturation is
highly saturated on the right. – [Jacob] Yeah, the one we all use. The normal Photoshop one, right? – [Julia] Yeah. – [Jacob] I thought you were
about to give him his mustache from the brief period of Dragon Ball Z where he had a mustache. I was gonna be like “Wow,
that’s a bold move.” – [Julia] I should’ve done that, but I didn’t know he had that. – [Jacob] Yeah, he had
a mustache for a bit, and everyone made fun of him for it. – [Julia] Amazing. – [Jacob] Then he got rid of it. – [Julia] I tried to add in
some red tints to his skin so he looks a little more alive. Here’s me trying to brush
in some of the hair, because god I don’t know
how to figure out this hair. – That looks great.
– That looks really good. The thing about this,
Julia, is it’s really good. – [Jacob] The angles on the
jagged like rocks you did, that’s fucking wild to me. I’ve never figured out
a good way to do that. – [Julia] It’s uh, polygonal
lasso tool, I figured out, is just a lot of fun to
play with, and you can see that I tried to add some
more in to see if I liked it, because I just, the whole thing felt a little incomplete to me,
so I was adding some in, and I wound up taking
a bunch out, and then– – [Jacob] I like those. – [Julia] Yeah, this was me putting in some more rock texture. Oh yeah, and then I thought
maybe I wanted to make it a little green, and then I wind
up just trashing that whole segment, I didn’t want to do the green. – [Jacob] Yeah, I kinda like the look, the feel of it with this
sort of grayscale-ish, like gray day. It’s bleak. – [Nathan] It’s like a Zack
Schneider movie, but good. – [Julia] I was also thinking
about putting like a planet and a moon in the background,
but I didn’t like it, so I just got rid of it. – I liked it.
– I liked it, but it was bringing too much attention over there. This is me using the pen
tool, I’m gonna use it as my selection tool. Because the pen tool, you can
draw lines with the pen tool, and then you can go to
make selection so that when you’re making it, you can adjust like the waypoints of it while
you’re working on it. So I was trying to give
him some like smoke that was coming off that rocky cliff. – [Nathan] You did so many
more things in an hour and a half than Jacob and I did. – [Jacob] Yeah, I think just
from a sheer number of things standpoint, we really look like assholes. – [Nathan] We don’t
look like assholes, but it’s just, oh shit! What’s going on here? – [Julia] Smoke coming off of him. That’s kind of what I
was trying to go for. I can’t remember if I
wound up keeping this. I think I did. – [Jacob] It’s almost got like a veins– – [Julia] Yeah, which
is not what I wanted, so I was unsure if I wanted to keep it. I think I wind up do keeping it. – Yeah, it looks great.
– It looks really cool. – [Julia] Good. And yeah, I think, oh
yeah, and I’m darkening up the backgrounds a little
bit, trying to give it some more colors,
some reds, some purples, trying to make it eerie. – [Nathan] It’s just
like everything about it is leading the eye right into– – [Jacob] Right into our beautiful Vegeta. – [Nathan] Into our
Vegeta, my favorite Goku. – [Julia] And I think that’s it. That’s it for my Vegeta. – [Nathan] Love, this
amazing painting of Vegeta labeled goku.psd. (laughing) – [Julia] This is Goku, right? – [Jacob] That’s perfect. – [Julia] That’s a Goku. – [Nathan] Julia this is so good! – [Julia] I’m glad. Oh, you can also see
that my Photoshop broke at some point, so if you look at the top, my Photoshop just started to break. – [Jacob] Yeah, what’s going on up there? It’s like coming apart at the seams. – [Julia] That’s what
starts to happen sometimes. So halfway through
this, it kind of started to get busted, but it’s all right, it didn’t affect my work flow. – [Jacob] That’s Gokus. – [Julia] That’s Gokus. – [Jacob] Oh man, all right,
I’ve got to get to work. – [Nathan] I’m inspired,
yeah, like holy shit. – [Jacob] For the next one of these, I’ve got to find a way
to come out swinging. – [Nathan] Yeah. – Welp!
– Anyway. – That’s Gokus!
– That’s Gokus. As they say in the
business, “That is Gokus.” – [Jacob] Thanks for watching, everybody. We’ll definitely be doing
more of these in the future. We like to do ’em just
occasionally when we feel like it. It’s fun to do. – [Nathan] It’s fun to do, it’s fun to see what you guys come up with. I’m always very impressed. – [Jacob] Fun to do, fun to see, and we hope it is fun
for you to see as well. If you have any other
ideas for like characters we could do in different styles, let us know down in the comments below! – [Nathan] Also ideas for styles, because I’m running out of ideas. – [Julia] Not ones that
we’ve done already. – [Jacob] Yeah, also you
can catch us on Twitch over on https://twitch.tv and
we do streams on Monday nights from 7-9, and Fridays from 2-5 EST, and 3-5 is what I meant to say. And that’s about it, other than that. I’m just sorry. – Sorry.
– Sorry!
