Timelapse Tuesday #31: 100 YouTube Subs! & Art Talk

Check out my Patreon for more content related to this illustration!

Art Process & Talk

Hi everyone and welcome back to Timelapse Tuesday! This week’s video is both for an Art Talk and celebrating 100 subs on YouTube! I wanted to make an illustration reminicent of the very first video I put up so I used my markers and color pencils!

This week’s Art Talk is about Small (Daily) victories. I go into a lot more detail in the video, but whenever I’m stuck or frustrated with my art practice, I do smaller tasks that are related to it to keep going. I go over a few of them on this illustration’s Patreon post as a sort glimpse into my studio practice on a weekly basis. They’re not elaborate or particularly special, but they help in some way and motivate me to tackle the bigger art tasks or get over the creative slump.

Quick reminder that $1 Patrons get to see fresh content before anyone else and $5 Patrons get access to lineart and a monthly digital drawing!

Art Process

Hi everyone and welcome back to Timelapse Tuesday! This video was a beast to make and edit, but I’m very happy how it turned out! Outside of cel-shade work, I’m not always happy with my digital painting skills but I do enjoying Clip Studio Paint’s pen tools. I’ve been thinking of transferring Chapter 1’s lines to watercolor paper but I want to give the process a try first with a new illustration before jumping in! Odd I know, but I think it was a success!

This is a scene I want to work in for Chapter 2 of Nightmare’s Tragedies, since it deals with the precursor conflicts before the storyline and, in a way sets up the comic’s plot in motion. I’ll talk more about it on Friday’s Comic Update, so stay tuned if you want more lore!

See you all soon for tonight’s Art Stream!

Art Process & Motivation

Hi everyone and welcome back to Timelapse Tuesday! This week’s illustration was a chance to work with my art markers again after not recording a complete YouTube video on them in quite some time! I wanted to be playful and illustrate the phrase “Say it with Flowers” with even more blooms!

I talk about keeping art fun and changing things up from a more serious process to something that is still challenging. I chose to go with a more graphic or comic style because I like high contrasts in my marker art. I took a quick break from watercolors so I wouldn’t worry too much on the layering and focus on the selection of colors. I wanted to render everything softly so I used my pastel markers as tonal values and only added the brighter colors as midtowns as needed. Overall I’m very happy with this simple illustration and I hope to make more soon!

I also wanted to add some gold ink details to make it extra nice and plan for a metallic print in the near future. I’ve been on a gold ink kick since last Thursday’s Twitch Stream when I added warm gold ink on my newest Twitch illustration.

Art Motivation

Hi everyone and welcome back to Timelapse Tuesday! This week’s topic came about while planning for a mixed media art piece and to encourage practice with materials you might have bought but never used. I understand how much an investment art making can be and sometimes we buy something we believe so precious that we don’t dare use it. I’m very much like that most of the time, especially with my watercolors and oils.

At first, I only used the student grade materials and didn’t try out anything beyond that, even though I had perfectly good artist’s grade materials just sitting in storage looking pretty. The main problem with this mindset is if I never practiced with the better supplies, I would never understand how they actually worked so I would be wasting more money just buying what I thought I could work instead of just doing it! Eventually I got over that fear of “wasting” my supplies when I changed my mindset to “Any art made is progress” and it’s helped me keep a positive outlook towards my own process.

I do hope this video helps you get over that doubt and gets you motivated to create more!
