Hi everyone! Welcome back to another Leah Bee Art
video, i’m Leah! In this video we will be looking at all the purchases I have made on
Amazon recently – Ooooo! First up – This is the Wacom Intuos M in
Pistachio Wireless Graphic Tablet. I actually bought this back in June, so i’ve had a while
to have a play with it and get used to it. Just to make you aware I actually bought the
Wacom Cintiq 16 Graphic Tablet, however I did not like it that much. Mostly because
it took up all the available workspace left on my desk, as you can see its not a big desk, and it was like a second screen
to my Mac rather than mirroring it (even when its ‘off’ its technically still connected,
so a lot of my items were opening on my tablet without me noticing, or vice versa when I
was using the tablet…it was just annoying). Also that Cintiq was the third one I have owned.
In the past I have owned the Cintiq companion version 1 and then version 2. Both equally
as cumbersome and ended up selling them in the end. Maybe one day I will have a display
tablet, but until then I am loving my little Intuos. It’s wireless so I don’t have that
taking up room. I can stash it away when im not using it, and it works really well on
my 27” iMac. I pop it straight under there, and its gone.
Out of the way. Second purchase we have – Flexible Tripod,
ELOKI Mini Travel Tripod. This has been really good for filming myself drawing if I want
a different angle, and its got bendable legs. Also I have filmed myself with it face on a couple of times. It’s a nice
little tripod to be honest! Probably not so useful for my art channel, but it’s cute and
it might come in handy in the future! Third purchase is an ebook – The ONE Thing:
The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results! I purchased this book because it
was one of the recommended books in viral academy (yes I am trying that out…so far,
I have 26 subscribers, 28 now!), this book is actually a MUST READ. I try and do one
thing everyday now, that means everything else is either easier or irrelevant. Somedays
can be difficult due to health issues, but i’m trucking, due to this book!
Buy this book people! Ok on to the next one – We’ve got the Staedtler Karat
Artists Art Kneadable Putty Erasers (pack of 2). I’ve taken this one out of the packet, but this one’s like this, in the packet. Ive been after some kneaded erasers
for a long time (as I have no idea where my last ones went…) and after watching a video
on YouTube about 30 different erasers, I knew I had to get this one as it tested the best!
I’ve been rather happy with how its performed so far, just don’t put it in your pencil case…it
was quite disgusting when it came out… Anyway! Next we’ve got the BOYA BY-M1 3.5mm
Lavalier Microphone. This was a gift from my partner, however it was purchased from
Amazon, and the link will be in the description along with everything else! So this cute little
mic can plug into your phone or your computer, and I have only tested it a couple of times,
but the sound quality is really good compared to just my phone (can you tell the difference!?
Using it now!). Such a good addition to my YouTube ‘kit’. And next we would of had the K&F Concept 60”
Professional Aluminium DSLR Video Overhead Camera Tripod Monopod. This thing has already been returned
to Amazon, for me this just did not do the job I wished for it to do! I bought it because
of it’s overhead filming capabilities, however when I set it up it barely covered half of
my drawing table! This meant I had to tilt the camera slightly to get my artwork in,
which unfortunately skews the drawing, not a huge amount but ever so slightly. Anyways
this was no good for me. I have instead bought a Neewer wall mount, which I will link in
the description below, and also purchased this the Pergear TH3 Pro DSLR Camera Tripod Ball Head. Then we have the UESTA A3 Self Healing 5 Layers
PVC Cutting Mat. Bought this as a present for my other half for our anniversary. Its
quite a cute little cutting mat, even though its A3 in size. Do you remember in school
all the cutting mats are those awful green colour? Yeah I didn’t realise you could get
them in different colours! Next up is my Electric Pencil Sharpener – And oh
my freaking god. This thing is SO FUN TO USE! Its better on round pencils barrel pencils,
rather than the hexagon barrel pencils, the sharpener tends to want to pull those out
of my hand! I have never owned an electric sharpener, and I probably haven’t used one
since infants school, all of my pencils are so sharp now they could be classed as weapons! It’s a little USB one, you just plug it in. Cute. And last but not least we have the TomBow
2.3mm Round Tip MONO Zero Refillable Eraser. Well what can I say about this little beauty,
if you need something erased in a precise place he shows up and goes ‘no problem m’lady’
and just gets it done! Really worth investing in I believe, if you want to do portrait drawings
and realism. It can be used to create highlights, and also wisps of hair. Very handy. That’s all for my Amazon purchases (for the
moment), let me know in the comments below if you have bought anything from Amazon recently,
and did you like it? Was it useful? I would love to hear your thoughts guys!
