Sketch with me! #1

Sketch with me! #1

Annyeong! Welcome to Dollightful! I’ve got something different for you this time. I woke up today and felt really inspired to draw some characters You know, character concepting so I thought to myself why not just record it since I’m going to do it anyways And we’ll see if it makes a good video This is going to be a little different though I usually write my scripts and do a voiceover But this time, I thought I’d try recording my voice as I’m watching the footage myself. So we’ll see how it goes. So to begin I wanted to use this scrap piece of paper up for something, so I thought I’d make a little tiny short character to fit the parameters I like to keep Pinterest up on the screen in front of me or on my phone to the side so I can kinda scroll around Stay inspired; for it for this one, I was looking at a lot of Korean and Chinese clothing and Kind of interpreting it into a little tiny doll sized character You can see here I’m going in with a pen after doing a pretty rough pencil sketch with a mechanical pencil and Now I’m going in with my favorite brush tip pen to put some shadows in and add a little weight to the lines Like I said, this is all really casual like it might be bad it might be good, I don’t even know I’m just drawing; going with the flow and that’s the finished piece that came out at 20 minutes, so, a pretty quick little sketch Umm, next I wanted to do something completely different from the first sketch So I thought you can’t get much more different than a giant armored man character. I don’t draw guys as often I do find it’s more fun for me at least to draw female characters But to keep myself in practice, I thought I would do something like this So once again, I’m sketching him out I don’t know why I didn’t put any armor on his arm seems kind of exposed compared to the rest of his body But, I don’t know I got really into the musculature and forgot to put anything there Hmm, I think at this point, I was looking at a few Monster Hunter character references. I love the armor in Monster Hunter I think it’s some of the coolest shapes out of any character armor I’ve seen Decided to give them a sword there. Sure why not right? You can see I’m trying to start it out really sketchy and see if I can just pick up.. Details when I come back in with the pen over the line work that’s a pencil. I’m trying to keep it really loose and fluid I think one of my main weaknesses is coming up with mechanical stuff on the fly it really.. It’s hard for me to make it look spontaneous Usually when I come up with armor or mechanical things I just sit down and really think about how it’s going to fit together, that sort of thing But I’m trying to make it a quicker process for me, so practice makes perfect I’m using my brush pen again to add some weight and a few more details like, umm I wanted the horns to look like ivory or wood a different kind of texture than the metal on the rest of his armor and Just kind of highlighting some edges and blocking in some of the shapes to make this sketch look a little more interesting And there [it] is! Not bad, I guess. You can tell I kind of gave up on that shield arm. I’m like sure whatever that’s good enough Okay, so for the third drawing I wanted to do a lady and I thought that would complete the trio I’ve got a little child character super buff dude, and now I want to do with the cute girl, so The biggest thing I think about when I’m doing really quick fast sketches like these are silhouettes And I think that’s the most important thing in character design, so I always try to get a pretty wacky silhouette out of it Wanted to give her some kind of sassy pose. You know I’m not really sure what she is some sort of wild girl magic-user type character Like I mentioned earlier, I’m not really planning ahead when I do sketches just like this This is just for fun. So I’m letting my mind wander; coming up with whatever I feel like on the spot If things do become dolls or characters later for sure I would put a little more thought into it but I think sometimes you get your best stuff when you’re just not thinking at all And you’re just letting it pour right out of your head, you know? Even if it doesn’t make any sense at the time When it does come to silhouettes (for girls anyways) I do tend to give my girls like ginormous insane hair because it always makes for a good silhouette in this case I went with giant braids There I go in with the ink pen again I don’t really make my lines too tight with the pencil because I know I’m just going to go back on top of it if I decide to ink it Aww, and I only worked on white paper today, which is a little odd for me I usually go with toned paper because I love how you can take a white pen on toned paper and draw it out But maybe next time if I do another one of these videos, I’ll use toned paper. We’ll see Got a little fancy with some shading I think I only put tassels on this one character But that’s actually something I have to watch out for because I just really love Tassels apparently, and I like to put them on every character, so in order to not be too redundant. I have to catch myself sometimes I’m adding a little shading with a pencil to bring out the silhouette better and as an afterthought I add some cool tribal tattoos even though I’d already signed it It’s never really done when you think it’s done, right? So yeah there she is she clocked in at 35 minutes a little longer than the other two Umm, partially because my husband came home while I was drawing so a little bit of my brain power was devoted to you know conversation with him, but all three drawings, I think were pretty successful pretty random and fun if you like this kind of video I’d be happy to do a few more so lemme know what you think in the comments below And uh, tell me what your favorite kind of character is to draw, do you like drawing little chibi characters, or big burly men or cute ladies Let me know in the comments, and yeah, thanks for joining Stay artsy, Annyeong!

  1. How do you draw eyes without it taking 3 hours?? Also your last character reminds me of Hekapoo and Starโ€™s warrior outfit from star versus the forces of evil. The things I draw most (and by most I mean the only thing I draw) are Starco ( Star X Marco) pictures from, you guessed it , star versus the forces of evil. Yeah, iโ€™m pretty obsessed with that show

  2. I actually really want this third sketch to become a doll, it seems pretty cool and I'm overly curious to see how it would turn out! ๐Ÿ’•

  3. The shadowy line pit thing is what inspired me to do the same for my clothes and details in my drawings

  4. I wish I can draw like you. But as a little kid, I'm probably too ametur-like, but good job!๐Ÿ™‚

  5. A bard, a barbarian, and a druid walk into a bar… and form a party, which proceeds to complete many side quests and antics at the distress of their DM

  6. those are awesome!!! my favorite is probably the third drawing, she kinda looks like some sort of viking-warrior-sorceress girl ๐Ÿ˜
    I mainly like to draw characters from my favorite books (the Skulduggery Pleasant series) and characters I made up๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜†

  7. I try male to female character design, but itโ€™s more fun to make female characters to me. I only have 5 male characters, and 6 female characters :/

  8. I tend to do lady action heroes. I try really hard not to only do action or draw only women, but I somehow always come back to that. And my shapes are so angular, it can be hard to tell one sex from the other. I feel I have a lot of variety I need to practice with. XD

  9. And I thought I was the only who drew their characters with Giant poofy hair…
    Great work, I envy your mad drawing skills!

  10. Your so good at drawing! I'm getting inspiration from your videos to keep trying. This would have took me forever to draw!

  14. I enjoyed watching your art process, it's very clear that you've been doing this for a while and have really worked on honing your skill and continuing to further it ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. I'm great at drawing anime girls but whenever I try to venture a bit beyond that line it always ends up by looking like some weird tiny human like creature with these ginormous eyes and completely unlike what I was trying to draw and an exact opposite!!! And that's why I can't draw realistic…. I mean of course I can draw realistic people!!! ha ha ha……. help me ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„

  16. I usually draw during math class bc its the only time im able to draw/think of anyhing. And i draw maily girls bc its fun but i have times when i what to draw boys.

  17. I canโ€™t draw girls or boys they always turn out feminine or at least what I think and I canโ€™t draw bodies (but when I draw it often is boys) only faces.

    Your art is so good I wanna draw like that to please tell me how to!!

  18. โ€œ35 minutes, a little longer then the othersโ€ (sitting here with paper, trying to draw aswell. Crying)

  19. I just want to scream every time I see your drawings, or see you draw CAUSE IT'S JUST SO BEAUTIFUL AMD I'M PRETTY SURE YOUR ART IS THE MEANING OF LIFE

  20. The Last female character could be the โ€˜armoured guy'sโ€™ GF! Just an idea!! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿค—

  21. For the second drawing, I was thinking maybe he punched people and things so much that his arm armor worn off. And then you gave him a sword. XD

  22. ์ง„์งœ ์ž˜๊ทธ๋ฆฌ์…จ์–ด์š”!!!

  24. Dollightful: Ill just do a quick sketch, might be messy or ugly….

  26. Dollightful: Spends 2 hours drawing three amazing artworks
    Me: Spends 4 hours drawing a disproportionate mess
