CLIP STUDIO PAINT Tutorial [English / Spanish / Korean SUB] “(5) 3D model and perspective”

CLIP STUDIO PAINT Tutorial [English / Spanish / Korean SUB] “(5) 3D model and perspective”


I am seeing the work finishing as painting characters is done, but the third frame is not started for the matter of instruction order. With a lot of straight lines, it seems difficult to drawn with free hand just like I have done so far.
I will introduce several functions for this situation. With CLIP STUDIO PAINT, various materials such as pattern tone and 3D model can be applied other than brushes. Here’s 3D model of train, so let’s use it. The method of adjusting point of view is the same as ʺ3D drawing doll.ʺ Guide lines can be displayed in the 3D space. The guide will be displayed on the screen by clicking the ruler icon in the ʺLayerʺ palette. You can adjust vanishing points by shifting guide lines with the ʺObjectʺ tool. It is useful when combining the perspective of rough sketch and that of 3D model. You can draw lines along perspective by using vanishing points of 3D space where the train is put now. Set the display range of ruler to ʺDisplay in all layersʺ in the ʺLayerʺ palette. Turn on ʺSnap to special rulerʺ in ʺCommand Bar.ʺ In this situation, you can draw lines along perspective of 3D space with ʺPenʺ tool and so on. Proceed to draw the railway and the front building. Reduce the 3D color of train to monochrome for fitting to the surrounding. Set ʺDisplay decrease colorʺ>>ʺMonochromeʺ effect in ʺLayer Property.ʺ Proceed to draw the backward buildings. These buildings are not with complete one-point or two-point perspective, but manga-like ʺfake perspective.ʺ Hide the vanishing point used for the foreground and create another vanishing point. Use ʺPerspective rulerʺ when drawing lines along perspective. Select the ʺFigureʺ tool>>ʺRulerʺ>>the ʺPerspective rulerʺ toolʺ in the ʺToolʺ palette. Draw a guide line twice along a diagonal line of the building, and vanishing point will be automatically set. You can draw both a line toward a new vanishing point and a vertical/horizontal line. It is one-point perspective. You can add vanishing point to two-point and three-point perspective. By using the function of ʺVector Layerʺ, it is easy to modify a part where lines are crossing in buildings and windows. Not only default materials but original background materials can be registered as ʺMaterial.ʺ Registered materials can be used right away by drag and drop to canvas and the ʺLayerʺ palette. Once the line drawing is finished, create a new ʺRaster Layerʺ and proceed to paint with fill tool. With the window part, select the ʺAuto selectʺ tool and drag with the ʺGradientʺ tool. Don’t paint meticulously in order to keep balance with surrounding frames. Draw cloud in the background with ʺBlurred edge watercolorʺ in the ʺBrushʺ tool. Now, all frames are painted. Looking over the whole picture, there are some parts that are not enough. In the next chapter, I will modify a bit to finish the illustration.

Professional Artist DESTROYS Regular People


– Oh my God! Are you guys like pranking me? Am I going against
a professional artist? – I can draw with both hands
and my feet. ♪ (upbeat intro) ♪ – (FBE) We’ve brought in
a professional artist to go undercover and challenge
some unsuspecting reactors to a draw off. Today, we’re going to be putting
your artistic abilities to the test with a little drawing competition. – Oh, that’s so fun!
I love it! Are you good at drawing though? – Eh.
– ‘Cause I’m like eh. – I don’t animate,
but I watch animation channels. You can call it studying. – I do draw.
I think I’m good. – I’ve been like an artist
for my entire life. I don’t know if I’m the best artist,
but I think I can, a least, draw. – (FBE) So we’re gonna do
a few different rounds, each with slightly different rules,
to see who can draw the best in the least amount of time. – Okay. – (FBE) Are you ready?
– I’m ready! – I’m not! – (FBE) For the first round,
you will have five minutes to draw a famous
Scooby Doo character of your choosing. Whoever finishes and has
a complete drawing is the winner. – Okay, I don’t know
how great I’ll do without a reference. I’ll see what my mind
can come up with. – (FBE) Yeah, you gotta do this
from memory. – (laughs) See, that’s where
I am extremely weak. But we’ll see what happens. – Let’s see if I can do it.
Think you can do it? – I don’t think I can I do it. This is the worst challenge
you could ever put me on. What does a dog look like? – I think he has four legs. – ♪ Scooby dooby Doo ♪
♪ Where are you ♪ What happened to those good cartoons? – (FBE) It’s still around.
– Still around! – What color was
the blonde dude’s shirt? – (FBE) White.
– Fred? – It was [bleep] white? – (FBE) It’s white and blue.
– With blue pants. He’s like macho, right?
– (FBE) Yeah, he’s… – No.
– Oh no? – Depends on which
rendition of him. – Ah, I gave him too short of a torso. – He’s emo Shaggy.
– (FBE) He went through a phase. – Yes, how old is Shaggy?
– We all go through. He’s technically a teenager. – He is?
He looks like he’s like 30. – I also haven’t watched
Scooby Doo since I was like five. So if this interpretation
is entirely wrong, I’m sorry. I think I’m gonna try Velma. ‘Cause the glasses
make it a lot easier. – That does not look like an ear. – (FBE) Jayka did you watch
Scooby Doo growing up? – Um, a little bit. – Everybody had to,
because it never went off the air! – I know he has like this messy.
– I mean, it’s Hollywood. – Like, high vibe hair. – (FBE) High vibe?
– You know, he’s a pothead. – We’ll make him a belt.
– Eh, sometimes you need something around the face.
– We’ll make a Gucci. We’ll give him a Gucci belt.
Let’s give him an ass too. – This is supposed to be
like a ball of energy by the way. I don’t know what else to do,
like this looks exactly like him. – Her hair’s like so basically shaped,
but I can’t remember. Oh, this is so poor.
Maybe this is like a different, new universe interpretation of her. – This looks like Scooby Doo on crack.
This looks like a mouse. – I have no idea how to do like anything from
the fricking shoulders down. – This does not look like him at all. This kinda looks like Carrot Top
or something. This looks like Shaggy,
this looks more like… – No Shaggy’s and Velma’s son. – Oh yeah, oh yeah,
that’s looking real good right now. – Oh my God! Are you guys like pranking me? Am I going against
a professional artist? – No, she didn’t have orange hair,
did she? She had brown hair, oh my God.
She had an orange sweater, no! Well, in this version,
she has orange hair, ’cause I can’t erase this.
So, new interpretation. – I’m not doing very well.
Wow! – All the like, cartoons
that I watched in Mexico, they were on like Spanish,
but Scooby dooby Doo, it stayed with Scooby dooby Doo. I mean, the song was in Spanish.
♪ Scooby dooby Doo ♪ – It stayed in Swedish too. – (gasps) That is so pretty!
– Thank you. – She’s amazing. – Let’s get him a nice blunt
in the back, we’ll get some smoke back there. – I feel so, this looks like…
– Wow, wow! I hate that I looked at yours! – I made her way too tall,
this is so off model. – Did you, do you see hers? She has like four characters
in the span of five minutes that look spot on to each character. – I have one question.
– Mm-hmm? – Do you think…
– No, that looks [bleep]. I mean, sorry,
I just swore in front of a child. – Mom!
(Avian laughs) – Okay, she’s going ham right now.
Mine’s cute though. – (FBE) Yours is adorable.
– Have heart! – How many are you doing, sis? – Is that Fred?
– This is so nice. Did you guys trick me into this? She’s obviously gonna win
all of the next ones. – If I looked at her,
I’d know what I did terribly wrong. – (FBE) If you wanted a reference,
there’s one right next to you, ’cause Avian here has drawn
a few different characters. – Oh my God,
I should’ve looked over there, that looks just like her!
Oh no! (laughs) You have like a little
cheat code for me right there, and I didn’t even look. – (FBE) Avian is actually
not a new reactor, she’s a professional artist
and has worked on several TV shows. – Of course she is!
What? – Yep, I actually work
on Scooby Doo. – What? – Which TV shows?
(gasps) No way, what? – I worked for Hasbro for Stretch Armstrong
and the Flex Fighters. I worked for Disney
for Puppy Dog Pals. – Oh my gosh. – I’ve worked for,
actually multiple shows. – Oh my gosh! – Like how does just animating feel? – Animation is my life,
my dream. – How did you start at art? – I started at art by,
by same way as you. I started drawing on walls. (laughs) – But she actually got somewhere. – I have the most respect
for stuff like this. Even like a little sketch of Shaggy, which you don’t think
is the best thing, it looks like the most adorable
interpretation of him. – You guys tricked me! I was literally watching you
the whole time, and I kept looking back,
I was like why are you making me, this is so good! – Do you think Shaggy,
this can make the cut for the new animation? Let’s just keep it as a maybe.
(both laugh) – (FBE) This final round
that we’re gonna do, it’s not a competition anymore.
– Okay. – (FBE) There’s just one of our
YouTube users, Sigma Rex requested that we draw Peter Pan as a werewolf. So if you wanna do your
best take on it, Avian’s gonna take
her best chance. – Wow. – (FBE) Do you have any tips or tricks
that could help Izzy out on becoming–
– Yeah, I need a lot of tips. – What are the things do you think
you feel like you’re lacking? – Uh, everything.
– You said wolf? I thought we left the werewolf life
back in the day in Twilight. – How do draw hair, so…
– (screams) I’m so scared. – Basically it’s all these strokes,
and then, yeah, there you go, see? If you’re gonna be
in story art, which is different
than storyboard artist, you can have your own style,
but I’m a style mimicker, so as a storyboard artist,
I’ll take somebody else’s vision, and I will continue that. ‘Cause sometimes, you know,
they will need somebody to continue on
when they leave off. – Dang it, why couldn’t it
be like a hand turkey. It had to be Peter Pan.
– Be a hand turkey! Be a hand turkey Peter Pan.
– I’m gonna make Peter Pan into a hand turkey.
– Have fun! So he’s standing there,
looking awesome. Draw from observation. It’ll train you eye,
it will train your hand. – It’s like another language to me. – Yeah, so that’s,
you start off with a skeleton, and then you build up. The hair is gonna work this way,
and then it’s gonna work this way. – Ooh!
It looks like Rocket. – Rocket Raccoon, yeah. – As someone who’s in art college,
and who’s gonna take storyboarding classes, like next year,
do you have like any general advice? – Here is the advice.
Listen to your body. – Okay. – It’s so easy to
be so excited about this stuff, ’cause you’re working in animation,
this is like your dream, but you can get so excited
about your dream that you put so much
of yourself into it that there’s nothing left for you. Take care of yourself
first and foremost. – I’m gonna have Peter Pan
be, I don’t know, a car. A car Peter Pan
with a feather. – What does his hat look like? Can you show me how to draw a hat?
– It looks like this, with a little dip,
and then. Always great to just
look from life. It’s the same way as an actor,
as a writer, as anyone. Draw, take from life. – Weren’t you drawing
with your left hand? – Yep. – And now with your right? – I can draw with both hands,
and my feet. Do you want me to demonstrate? ♪ (upbeat music) ♪ – Does Peter Pan have a long neck?
I don’t know, we’ll make his neck green. – (FBE) He’s very green,
and he’s very, uh… – He has a feather, right? What color’s his feather?
– Red. Why do you do this? – Honestly, for as long
as I can remember, it’s just been thing thing
that I was drawn to the most and what felt right for me. Compared to when I would study, or go out and work
and do different things, I figured that was just
the obvious choice for me. – Good, that is the correct answer. – (FBE) Can you draw
Tinker Bell, Avian? – I think I can.
– Of course she can. She’s gonna have purple hair, okay? – (FBE) She’s a punk Tinker Bell.
– Way better, way better. – (FBE) Hey, yours is adorable. – (Izzy) Thanks!
– (Avian) It’s cute! – It looks like Hello Kitty. In the comments, they can
tell me what they think this is. – It’s mainly just Peter Pan
going into puberty. – This was lovely,
thank you guys so much and thank you so much
for coming in. – If you tell me that’s Shaggy,
I know. – So this is how I draw
with my feet. Just in case I lose both my arms
because I still wanna be employed in storyboarding.
– Nothing is stopping you guys. I don’t wanna hear you complain
ever again in your lives. This is proof, okay?
Just get it done. Whatever you gotta do. – Thank you so much for watching. You wanna see more of my art, you can go to
@Avian_Anderson on Twitter or on Instagram,
see my stuff. Let’s connect.
Bye bye!

The Caricature Artist Who Sketched the Man Who Robbed Him | The Daily Show

The Caricature Artist Who Sketched the Man Who Robbed Him | The Daily Show


We have a major story
that is shaking California. And, actually, you know what,
for this story, can we… I’m gonna need…
I’m gonna need some help. Can we get, um… Let me think. Can we get Roy? Roy? Can we get Roy to come and join me at the desk? Yeah, I just… No, ’cause Roy’s got
a great perspective. I just wanted to chat to you. Roy Wood Jr. (cheering and applause) What’s up, man?
What’s-what’s happening? -I just, um…
-Going on? I just need… I need some help
with this next story. Mean, that’s weird.
You never needed help during the headlines. -No, but this one’s…
this one’s different. -I… Um, it’s a very big story, and I just need you
to stay here. And, uh, let’s roll the tape.
Let’s roll the tape. Police in southern California
say an artist appears to have sketched
the man who stole his money. Detectives say
this is a caricature of the suspect in a robbery at Riverside’s
Festival of Lights this month. The guy asked the artist
to make the drawing. When it was done,
the suspect grabbed a bag with about $500 in it
and ran off, but he left the picture behind. Police posted it on Facebook
with the message, “Do you recognize
this caricature?” The message went on to say
that the caricature is… is one of the suspects,
but, of course, there are exaggerated
characteristics and features. (laughter and applause) So… Okay. -I don’t know…
-Okay. So you gonna do me like that. That’s fine. So, so,
let me ask you something. When you asked me
to wear a red hat to work today, it wasn’t ’cause you thought
a red hat would look good on me and the holidays and whatever.
You… It was a joke. I also… I also like the hat. I also like your hat,
but also for the joke. Are we done? Are we done?
Can I go back? Yeah, no, we’re done.
I just wanted to, um… -Okay, good. If we’re done…
-Can we take a selfie -real quick?
-Oh, my God. Look, I’m done. -I got work to do, man.
-It’s funny. -(laughing): You look
like the guy. -No. -It’s not me. -Roy Wood Jr.,
everybody. Don’t be mad. -It’s not me.
-Don’t be… (laughing)

Getting an Art Degree? – What next?


Recently, I’ve had a few Art students ask
me for advice for what to do after they have finished their studies and go out into the
world with a degree tucked under their arms – looking for a job. Well, It’s a long time since I started and
things have changed a lot. Back then there was no internet – just the Artist’ and Writers
Year book that contained a lot of addresses and phone numbers. I made a list of all the
companies I wanted to work for, phoned them up and made appointments to see the art directors.
Then I trudged around London showing my portfolio. Sadly, it just doesn’t work that way anymore.
Art Directors are under a lot of pressure and pretty much rely on Agents to do the sifting
and sorting for them. There didn’t used to be illustrator websites
either – I don’t subscribe to them. Little pictures of your work on a site like that,
look just like everyone else’s. The only calls I ever got from illustrator sites were
from other illustrator sites wanting me to show my work there too – and pay for it! I asked an influential Art Director last week
just how much has changed, and this is what she said” “The sad thing is, there are so many 100’s
of budding artists all trying to get their work seen these days that I could employ someone,
full time, just to see portfollios or answer illustrators’ emails. It feels so harsh
to say it, but in these tough times, we simply don’t have the resources to see illustrators
unless their work shows a unique commercial promise. Artists can certainly email or send
in samples to Art Directors and Publishers and, in my experience, they all get looked
at. Sadly, the majority will get a “thanks but no thanks” reply, but if the work looks
exceptionally promising they’ll either get a request for more samples or be invited to
show their work, in person. The key words here are UNIQUE and COMMERCIAL PROMISE if
they want to be seen. ? And there you have it. If you want to work
as an artist, making work to sell or to be commissioned, you have to be commercial. I’m
afraid your degree is not going to help you, unless you are going into art management or
other full-time jobs where qualifications may be taken into account. Your degree has bought you three or four years
to experiment and find your true purpose in life. A degree in art is pretty much a certificate
of attendance. It is your work and your portfolio that really counts. I’m not saying that degree is worthless
– you need the time, guidance and the companionship of like-minded people that a degree offers
to develop you skills and ideas. But please don’t think the world owes you work and
riches just because you have that piece of paper in your hand. If you are still at college, the best thing
you can do is to learn about marketing and and start planning your final degree show. A final degree show is not just a nice exhibition
to show your parents what you’ve been doing for three or four years, it’s a serious
show case. You can’t rely on your teachers or professors to do it for you either. Start planning a humdinger of a show. If you
are miles away from the centre of the art world, hire a place near where the buyers
are and start targeting them to make sure they come and see your work. You may be in a sleepy backwater university
town that has been lovely and delightful for the past few years, but Art buyers and commissioners
are not going to go out of their way to come and see your show! You need agents to see your show too. They
probably all live somewhere fancy too! Are you getting my drift? Go and read about how Damien Hurst organised
the Freeze exhibition when he left College. I’ll put a link below. It rocketed him and
his college friends to almost instant stardom. He and his friends are really successful now.
It would be hard to repeat what he did, but you can learn a lot from his tactics. While you have college or university facilities
available start producing business cards and posters to send to people. Start getting in touch with agents or, if
you are a bit of an entrepreneur, start to learn something about business and marketing.
It is not rocket science, and you are allowed to be the master of your future success. There
is no law that says you must have a gallery or an agent. Starving artists starve because they don’t
make work that people want to buy. Successful artists make stuff that people want and they
learn how to market it and sell it. Do not get seduced by the starving artist
in the garret idea. This fantasy was dreamed up by the writers of romantic operas whose
audiences loved to wallow in stories about bohemian failures dying of TB in rat infested
attics. This is romantic nonsense. Artists are allowed to earn a living as much
as anyone else and they do not have to suffer for it. Like anyone else trying to make a
success of their lives, you may have to make a few sacrifices but you don’t have to wallow
in artistic pain – this is a lie devised by devious agents and gallery owners to keep
artists on a tight leash. More than anything else keep making the work
and keep making it better. Know who you are – know who you are making it for and make
your work for them – they are the ones who are going to buy it and make your future the
success you so desire. I’ll talk more about marketing in another
video because I don’t think people really understand what that term means. Until then, keep drawing drawing drawing,
practice practice practice – keep making the work – keep making it better and I’ll see
you next time. You take care now, bye bye.

IT’S GOOEY, IT’S WASHY…ITS GOUACHE! | Mystery Art Box | Scrawrlbox Unboxing | Opaque Watercolors

IT’S GOOEY, IT’S WASHY…ITS GOUACHE! | Mystery Art Box | Scrawrlbox Unboxing | Opaque Watercolors


Hello welcome to another video. Today’s challenge will be to making art with the contents of the November ScrawlrBox. Yes, November ScrawlrBox. Feel free to leave a comment below telling me what month it really is. Ya done? Okay, [Mad clattering and tapping] Whoa. Let’s take a look and see what’s inside. ♪ Must have been escaping. [Tapping] Pretty solid. Alright, so the first thing I see peeking out is a pencil. It’s the Robinson 3B pencil. We have the Scrawlrbox sticker. Looks like it has some kind of paint. So I’m gonna guess we’ve got some paint in this box. Right here we have the menu listing the art supplies in the box. And here we have the actual art supplies! Okay. So this is the Daler Rowney color selected by ScrawlrBox, aqua fine gouache. There are six 15 milliliter paint tubes. Maybe it opens all fancy. No, it doesn’t, never mind, it’s just a box. Ooh, there we go. There we have it! Wow! Ta-da! One hand, [Laughs] Oh, they have little pockets in there. Can you see in there? So of the six colors, we have the wonderful – Portrait pink. Cadmium yellow deep hue. We learned in that other box that hue means it’s not actually made out of cadmium because cadmium is dangerous. We have Alizarin crimson hue. Cobalt blue hue and finally an ivory black. So those are six opaque watercolors or gouache. Also in the box, we have an – Looks like a plastic eraser by the brand Kum or Koom. I like how velvety it feels. [Laughs] We also have the candy which looks like a lemon drop or a lemon pop [candy bangs on table] and finally, I don’t know what this is. I’m gonna have to take a look at the – Oh, you know what? [Laughs] I was like, what are you just use this for? Is this like for scratching something? It’s the Royal Talons Van Gogh or Van “Goth” 191 series paintbrush. [Thud] [Laughs] Poor guy. I hardly even knew ya! I wonder where its head is Seems have gotten decapitated in transit. You know what I bet happened. I love drawing portraits. So. I’m excited! But you know what I think happened? A piece of this was sticking outside. So I bet this sort of like fell outside of the box, like that and then just got broken off. That’s so sad. I’m like really disappointed. Yeah, maybe I can try and find a way to use this anyway. Why couldn’t it have been the pencil!? [Laughs then growls] [SMACK] Alright, let’s take a better look at this print though. Here we have, it looks like a portrait. I wonder if these are the same colors that – I wonder if the same colors we used to draw this that we were provided. This is by Riso Chan, right? And then that’s her Instagram, if you’d like to check out some more art. I’ll definitely have it linked down below, too. I like how there’s a rendered face and then this flat color for the shirt. I would love to be able to do a flat color like that traditionally, that would be [Mwah] I love to try. and then finally the last thing in this month’s box is the paper and it is the Bockingford’s CP watercolor paper. It’s 220GSM. It has a very rough texture to it. [Paper wobble] It’s pretty common wibble sound and they gave us two sheets of that Alrighy, I think I’ll start by swatching inside my sketchbook. We’ll go ahead and fill a couple of these… I was gonna call it a colander. [Laughs] Sections, what is the word? Oh if you didn’t know, gouache… is very opaque watercolor, so you can actually mix it with water and get just normal watercolors. But if you use it straight out of the tube, it’s very opaque. [Sad laugh] I just grabbed the paintbrush. We are going to need some water and a paintbrush from my own stash and paper towel. You should never do watercolor without the paper towel. [Paper towel rips] I don’t know what to do first. ‘Cause like here’s the colors, right? And then we have a pencil I think everyone knows how a pencil works, right? Woooo! [Laughs] I think I could start with this seeing how opaque it is. So I just drew with the pencil, now we can take some of the goauche, try and draw over it. Oh, nice , okay. Very opaque. I have a little bit of water on the brush. So that is gonna cause a little bit of transparency. But it looks like we can get it opaque if we need to. So if we do like a first layer Over a sketch with a little bit of water and you can just barely see the pencil underneath, then I bet when that dries, you can go over it again straight from the tube, and be able to cover over your pencil. Okay, that seems to be the way to do it. I’ve done
gouache a couple times, like bare minimum here, so. We’re gonna have to really play with this I think. This is gonna be fun. Let’s see what’s the prompt word? Face of emotion. I think we should start by just playing around and seeing what happens. Trying to make like a orange color. I have this random tiger that I was drawing. Nice and pudgy . I kinda wanna throw in some paint on that. Kinda just getting a feel for the art supplies. Seeing what happens we add a little water. When I don’t. What happens when I mix the paint with the paintbrush like directly in the palette, you know. Just kind of making mental notes of how everything works or doesn’t work. Kind of like the way it looks like a gradient, because I kind of mix the paint… In the paintbrush. I wonder if you can reactivate it with water on top. ♪ Not sure if that was on the paintbrush or not. [Laughs] Add that yellow on top to lighten it up. Kinda see how it layers. Color in the inside of the ears. This, I tried with a little bit more water so you can see, I can see the pencil underneath. That’s something you’ll have to layer. Now going in with more opaque white and kind of layering it on top and it’s grabbing the other colors which are underneath and kind of blending them in together. Which is kind of cool because I haven’t waited for them to dry yet. You can add a little bit of water to just smooth out the strokes. It’s kind of cool. Just playing around. It’s starting to look more like a tiger already. Gonna use some of that like pinkish yellowish, white. This is all before we’ve even added the stripes. Figure out where the body is. Not sure. I feel like I got really distracted by this ’cause it’s turning out so well that I’m not saying anything So hi. How are you? Just kinda blending the colors on the paper. I also don’t have a sketch down here. So I’m kind of just Winging it, filling in the shapes with the paint . With the gouache. Layer on a little bit of the yellow on top. Not sure how long to make that. I’m not gonna actually draw the whole tiger I don’t think. Add a little bit more white in here, clean the brush! Gonna blend out this color here. Hopefully it hasn’t dried too much. ♪ That got a little messy. I’m sure when that dries I can clean that up pretty easy, but ew, right now, it’s gross! You just gotta keep working at it. I need more white. I love the way it mixes in. Kind of becomes more cohesive. The color scheme. Lighten it up under here, kind of blended in too much. Doing that by just adding more white, putting it on top and kind of like blending it in on the paper. I think adding in the black stripes is gonna be really fun. I’m gonna be that final [smooch] on the painting. That’s just gonna make it really – You’ll be like yeah, that’s a tiger. [Laughs] Grab some more white. Add some final highlights before we let that dry and add in some stripes. I’m just doing it dry. Like straight from the tube. So it’s creating that kind of interesting texture right there. Alright, I think… It’s good enough for a spur-of-the-moment tiger! When you do a drawing so long ago, it feels like a little collab with yourself. [Laughs] It was so long since I’d drawn the tiger head originally. I mixed in the blue with the red and it created a pretty dark brown. I’m kind of using that before I use black. See if I like that. Or if I should go darker. Gonna just draw in some of the stripes! Some of these might need to be darker. Just mix in a little bit more blue,so that there’s less water I’m gonna just try and go in with some black Maybe mix it with a little blue and a little bit of the red. That should give us a nice opaque. There we go There we go Add a little bit of water to these. Not much, I don’t want it to transparent again, which was the problem we had with the brown. It’s kind of strange because I’m not entirely sure where they go. I’m just kind of winging it. I’ve got a bit of a reference up. Hopefully that’ll help make them look… Plausible. Sometimes they separate and create that little space and then connect again. So cute! [Laughs] Practice my brushstrokes. But If didn’t have a reference. I can tell you right now, this would not look anywhere near this good. Use references! I don’t have any specific one I’m using because I have to keep switching around to find them looking different directions, just to see how their stripes look in different directions. Around the mouth, there’s also stripes. Kind of here. They’re a little bit more broken up. Now it looks like he has a mustache! I’m gonna use this color for the eye. Straight from the tube and then I’ll go around that with some more black. To kind of define it once it dries. I’m just gonna wing it down the leg. I’ll take it. It’s got to be the best tiger I’ve ever drawn. Lighten up the edges with some white paint. Ha, my dirty white paint. There you go. You get a vague idea of how some of the colors work. To say I’m happy with this is an understatement. [Laughs] I really like it! What do I do next that lives up to this!? The prompt is face of emotion. Tigers have faces, [Laughs] So I don’t think we’re that far off. But what if I drew like a portrait kind of like that print that came in like maybe a straight-on portrait, in my style obviously, but then we use the paints and since I’ve went ahead and figured out some colors to use to paint tigers, What if we just drew this character with like tiger stripes or something? Just speaking out loud. [Laughs] Might as well try it. We have two sheets of paper. So if it turns out horribly wrong, I won’t tell you about it. It’s like it never even happened. Oh, wait. Ew. Wait, wait wait! This looks like that cats movie. No. Let’s come up with a different idea. I don’t even want to. I don’t [Laughs] No I don’t. No. [Laughs] No I don’t want to do that at all. Mean I could. Nah. Hmm, I could erase all the cat bits. No. I mean the paper still usable if I need to come back to it and completely erase it. Alright instead, we’re gonna just – [Laughs] I can’t think of anything. Let’s just take this prompt word really literally. Draw a face with some emotion. I think what would be cute is… I’m gonna again, try to draw a straight on portrait because I find those difficult and challenging so. That’s the goal here. And I think what would be cool for an idea is to draw… You know in movies, when someone gets like really terrible news in the movie and they like cry but they still look gorgeous doing it. I want to draw like a perfect, serene face with like one single tear falling out of the eyelid. [Laughs] Like they’re watching their home burn. So I guess the whole face should be pretty flat like emotionless and we just have that tear falling out. That’ll be fun to try and draw a tear because I don’t think I’ve ever actually drawn one that looked like a real tear. I’ve done like cartoony just like a blue goop coming out of your eyeball but not like making it actually look like water, so that would be kind of fun. We’ll see if I fail that miserably. It’ll still be fun either way. Okay, I slightly turned the face, just ’cause I find that a little less… Spooky and I kind of like the angle that I got even though it wasn’t intentional. so all I do is just move the nose over and the mouth over a little and voila, it’s just a face looking slightly off to the right. As usual. Gonna keep cat eyeliner. Just for you, baby. Now with these colors, We should be able almost makes up any color we want, so I don’t think we’re limited at all. I think you need to look a little sadder than that or it’s not gonna really convey. Maybe flatten out the eyebrows. We’ll just flatten out the eyebrows. That should bring a little less life to the face. Lowering the eyebrows a little. No, if the eyes are looking upwards a little bit, Does that make sense? We could put a lot of redness around the eyes too. That should make them look pretty sad. even if we can dip up the inner corners of the eyebrows a little. That’ll help too. How sad are we looking for here? ‘Cause I could have done a really exaggerated sad face. Like I think that’s a little easier. So maybe let’s try and keep it subtle. As long as they look sad at the end, we win. Okay, that’s, that’s – That’s the goal here. Drawing sad people’s making me a little sad. Maybe this was a bad idea. But sadness is an emotion just like other emotions that I could have chosen. But I chose this. This is how the cat’s movie makes me feel. [Laughs] I’m gonna give my character these same earrings because I think they’re interesting and the other side too. ♪ There we go. Mine are twisting a little. We’ll see how those look what I’m done. [Laughs] Probably end up looking exactly like those even though I tried to be different. I’m gonna put it in the same outfit – why not? We could do the same hair. How would I draw this hairstyle? Let me think. I like to draw my hair is like big chunks instead of individual strands. And then sometimes I just throw a few individual strands on top for kicks and giggles. Looks like the hair kind of like stays around the outside of the face. Trying to the same shape down. It’s kind of smaller up at the top of the head. I think it’s wider and then ends right above – Between the chin and the mouth. so I’m too long already. You need to end like… Here. Glad I just measured. [Laughs] Loosen up the edges there so they don’t look like a straight line. Kind of play around with the rest of the shape. This is getting in my way. Move it. [Laughs] Break up the shape a little bit. make it a little curlier and wild like this characters hair. I love how this ended up being kind of fan art. Oops. It happens. I just really like the way the blue, the blue and then the orange earrings I think it could be really fun. Try and clean this. Ew, ooh, yummy! Yum. Probably should have just taking it to the sink. It would have been easier. Throw in a little extra blue and then we’re gonna have to mix that with some white for the shirt. And then I wonder we go straight blue for the hair. Mine’s a little bit more saturated. But it might dry more that color. So I
think I should use this now before it dries in my palette. Just go ahead and paint that in. Fill this in. I wonder if we should have erased some first. Should we ass a little bit of water to it? Get a cleaner, crisp edge. Goal here is to try and get a nice flat color and we’re gonna try and render the face. Then I think the hair, it looks like there’s a gradient, it’s darker at the bottom and a little lighter at the top. Why don’t we try to do the same thing? You can learn a lot by trying to recreate someone’s art. Even if you don’t do it in their same art style. Just by paying attention to how they do things slightly different than you, whether it’s like how they draw eyes or how they color shirts. [Laughs] That needs to dry. While we wait for that to dry, I could probably mix up the next colors. So we need some really light pinks. Really saturated pinks. It looks like some yellows. Ooh, this might be fun. It’s probably this color also mixed with red and white. We have some red there we can take but we need more white. See this color is a little too deep like it’s a it’s a very cool red You can kind of tell how nice it looks next to the blue, but this seems more like a warm red. Don’t listen to me. I don’t know what I’m talking about. [Laughs] We got a couple of tones there and when this stuff dries, it should be really matte. That’s another attribute of gouache. So with the face, what I think I want to do is add a lot of water… at first, that way we see the pencil underneath and we know where to put all the colors. So first, use it kind of like watercolor. You’ll be able to see kind of some of the sketch underneath as we slowly build… up the color and that looks like we should get more saturated. If we’re gonna kind of copy this as reference towards the center of the eyes. What I love about art, is like there’s so many different ways to draw like a face So like even here like I’m kind of copying someone else’s I’m kind of seeing how they do it. I should try and do something like this with like the old painters like what Rembrandt? Even Picasso would be kind of fun. Do like studies of old painters, the greats. See where they put the green on faces. I’m always amazed by people who can use the color green when painting a face and it doesn’t look bad [Gasps] Geesh! you’ve got the skills. I need a little more pink. Everything’s looking a little bit… grayer compared to this. Okay. Now, we won’t something kind of yellow. I wonder if we mix that with some white you get a good yellow. Oh, there’s yellow. There she is! I’m having a buckling problem. Shoot. I really should’ve taped this down. Kinda like the way it scoops. Kind of how the pink goes over the bridge of the nose and then connects to the other eyeball. I really like that. I still haven’t even finished filling the whole face in with paint yet. The way I would normally do it is just fill the whole face in with one flat layer of color and then build up my tones. I have no idea how this person did it, but the way I’m going about it is very different than my normal process. Nice light color here. For the bridge of the nose ’cause a lot of light will be hitting there. Trying to follow the similar light source, Right, right now my character looks kind of diseased. But I assume as we build it up we couldn’t probably Slowly render it a little bit more as we slowly figure out what looks good and what doesn’t. I’m kind of doing a little bit of that blending on the canvas like I did with the tiger. Kinda just put them right on there and then try to blend it out with the colors that are wet underneath of it. ‘Cause every time I try to mix a color and go on top, it’s just not quite light enough I’m also trying to like translate this shading to this different face shape. Which is kind of fun. Lips would probably make a significant improvement to this drawing. Now, I’m probably gonna pull away from this a little bit. Start doing it my way and see if I can like build it up on top without like completely walking away from this. I think of the plains of the face and see how they’d be. I’m gonna clean the brush and dry it and try to do a little bit of blending. Just try to make some of these crazy hue shifts. Not seem quite as jarring. ‘Cause I kind of just blobbed them on there as it is. Add in some nostrils. Darker color. Does that make a difference? Okay, right now the nose is not quite my style. It’s kind of small. I like it a little bit bigger and rounder. Some more lighter tones. Kind of around the outside here. Kind of pull it upwards a little. That will hopefully help a little. Noses are tricky to paint. I guess everything is kind of tricky to paint. Especially the things you don’t paint as much. Like noses. Like eyes you paint two eyes everytime you draw a face, right? But noses, you only ever draw one at a time. [Laughs] No one has a pair of noses. Right that widened didn’t the nose already. I’ll probably continue to play with that. We also still have some white paper showing through. I’ll need to mess around with. Okay. I think it’s time for that technique that worked pretty well where I’d cleaned and then dried my brush and then blended some of the colors that need it. Some of the harsher areas A better understanding of facial structure would probably help me out right here. I think that’s making some improvements. Kind of kept some hair strands. That’s kind of interesting. I don’t know if I should paint over those. I like it But at the same time, I’m probably gonna end up over them even if I try not to. ‘Cause I need to add the next layer of blue. See if I can reactivate this color and put it on top and blend in huh? We’ll see what happens. This is an experiment! Okay, I think it dried too fast underneath it. Clean the brush, blend it out with a dry, clean brush. Okay, that’s more the effect I’m looking for. and kinda blend it out. This layer of paint’s still wet, compared to the other side. So I can actually just go in with the paint and it blends as I place it down. That’s more helpful. Now, this is giving off like a gray hair vibe that I am not into. So I’m thinking I’m just gonna take straight blue now and just try and blend this in and see what that looks like. Not even gonna bother cleaning the brush. Okay, yeah, that’s a lot more saturated. I think this is more what we need. We’ll just have to worry about blending it together. ‘Cause I don’t like how muddy it looked before this. I can’t promise it’ll look good but I’ll promise it’ll look a little better. How’s that? Probably should have just started with this color, that would have made a significant difference, than have all this grayness going on. Is it brightening up yet? Slowly and surely. Alright still not the same color. This is also reflecting light because it’s a shinier surface. So the colors are going to look lighter. Woooop! See, if you ask me to do crazy hair, I’m gonna go all out. It’s not that crazy. I guess I failed, never mind. [Laughs] I love a little frizz. Oh, you know what I haven’t colored? The earrings. I think I need to wait for the hair to completely dry . I don’t want to mix the blue with the yellow since those are contrasting colors. That would not be pretty! So there’s definitely expression on this face. Like I’m seeing some emotion, but not the emotion I was going for but I will take it. I could try to add the tear but I’ve no idea how to do that. I think what you do is you just add like a shadow. So we would grab this pink like right here. Oh, that’s not even a shadow. [Snorts] This pink. Then we’ll let that dry and then add some highlights to try and make it look like a tear. That would be… My best guess on how to paint a tear. I played her on with the face a little bit. I don’t know if you can see any improvement there. The nose is still a little janky, but… We love her anyway. Actually what I should have done… Is a bunch of highlights. Like there’s tears right above her eyes. And then we want that light hitting the tear there. I couldn’t get that any smaller. Could probably grab a little bit of a highlighty pink. Kind of paint over it a bit. Mm-hmm. I mean Not the worst tear I’ve ever drawn. We’ll put it that way. [Laughs] Oh I need to do the earrings! That’s the last thing here. We don’t want it to blend at all with the blue. That’s why we wait for it to dry. These two colors don’t like each other. We’ll make sure these are very opaque versions of each other with their colors. ♪ Okay, that worked. Then when it’s dry. I should be able to put the highlight right on there. Right like that. Any other little tiny tidbits I want to do and I don’t think it turned out too bad. I kinda like it. I liked the abstractness. How it’s not too blended at the same time of having a pretty rendered feel to it. Still need to work with my contrast of like trying to find darks and lights, ‘Cause I was a bit stuck in the mid-tone, like I understand that it’s a problem, but it’s very hard to try fix it. But knowing it is obviously part of fixing it so! We will continue on this art journey into the future. I think my favorite part of today was drawing this (tiger) Painting this (tiger). Sorry I drew it awhile ago. [Laughs] Painting it was really, really fun. I really like the way that colors turned out and the way the white blended with the orange and made this really warm white color. I really like that about it. I love how you can get a flat even tone like look at that and I think I like gouache a little more than acrylic even though I’ve been using a lot of acrylic lately ‘Cause it works so similarly, but I feel like it handles adding water to it a little bit better which makes sense because gouache is watercolors. That was fun. I do want to say thank you to ScrawlrBox for sending me this box to try out and share with you. If you’re interested in getting your own ScrawlrBox. I’ll have the links in the description. I had a lot of fun with this month’s box and I hope you enjoyed watching me try out the supplies Thank you guys for watching. I’ll see you guys all next week and I hope you have a delicious evening full of waffles. Bye! ♪

Fred Armisen, Art Aficionado: The Discovery by Norman Rockwell

Fred Armisen, Art Aficionado: The Discovery by Norman Rockwell


-You’re a gift
in the holiday season. Having you here is a gift, because you are
a Renaissance man, Fred. I hope you don’t mind me
saying that. -No, I don’t mind.
-Okay. And you just know so much
about everything. You know so much about music,
so much about literature, so much about films.
A cinephile — Would it be fair
to call you a cinephile? -Very fair, yes. -And one thing is,
you are also an art connoisseur. -I am. -And you were
telling me recently that you have almost
an art historian’s knowledge of every painting ever painted. -Not almost.
I mean, exactly that, yeah. Every painting. -Exactly every one. -Exactly every one, yes. -And this isn’t just something,
and again, no judgment, this isn’t just something
you made up to impress me. And you’re not putting me
in an awkward situation now where I’m going to ask you
to describe a painting, and you’re going to just make it
up off the top of your head. -No, no, no. -You wouldn’t do that to me on
our last show before Christmas. -No, of course not. I would not do that to you. -Okay. Then it’s time once again
for our new segment, “Fred Armisen: Art Aficionado.” ♪♪ [ Cheers and applause ] Fred! This is Norman Rockwell’s
1956 painting “The Discovery.” Fred, tell us
about this painting. -A fascinating painting. This is, first of all,
Mr. Rockwell’s first painting. And he painted it
at a very young age. He was 1 years old. -He was 1 year — In 1956, Norman Rockwell
was 1 years old. -That’s when they sort of,
you know, gave it a title, and they put it up in a gallery, but he had painted it
much earlier. -Oh, I see.
-As a baby. He discovered it as an adult,
like, “Oh, my God. I think I painted this
when I was 1.” [ Laughter ] So when he was a baby, what they
used to do in those days, is they used
to just give babies, like, you know, tools and things like, here’s a wrench.
Are you a mechanic? Here is, you know — Here’s
a ruler. Are you a teacher? So they give him a paint brush. -So, I’m sorry — Like, as means
of, like, an aptitude test? -Yes.
-Okay. -Those were just the days. And they gave him
a paint brush and canvas, and he whipped this up in, I don’t know,
20 minutes or something. -It’s hyper realistic
for a 1-year-old. -Yeah, but —
-I think you said 1 years old. Is that how you do it?
-Well, he was 1 years old. -So that’s interesting.
I would say 1 year old. -Yeah, but with months, with
babies’ ages, it’s a plural, because it’s the continuation
of the year before. So it’s not 1 year. He didn’t —
He had completed that one year. So he was 1 years. -Okay. I feel like
we’re away from art. -Yeah, but he would be then
in his second year. So 1 years old. 2 years old.
-Okay. Gotcha. ‘Cause he’s, like, 1.2 years. -Exactly. Yes. Thank you.
-Yeah, okay. -So, he painted this. He did it really quickly,
and then the doctor told him, he was like, “You know
you’re 1 years old.” And so the baby’s expression
at the surprise of that, he painted onto
the face of the boy. -Oh.
-He was like, you know what — -So this wasn’t done
until he found out — -Yes.
-Till the doctor told him, “You’re a good painter.”
-Yes. And he was like — [ Laughter ] And he just — -Wow. Thank you, Fred. I do believe that was all true. And I really appreciate you
not lying to me. -My pleasure.
-Merry Christmas, buddy. -Merry Christmas. -Give it up for Fred Armisen,
everyone!
