DRAWING A FAN’S CHARACTER!

DRAWING A FAN’S CHARACTER!


Hey guys! Welcome to another episode of RossDraws and today is the fan redraw episode! Yes! Thanksgiving is all about
being thankful and giving back, and I want to show my appreciation by
redrawing one of your drawings. Earlier this month, I asked for a submission of your art through my Instagram #RossRedraws and
we got like, thousands of submissions! Ah! We spent the whole day looking at all
the entries to find the perfect one and I think we found it. You guys ready? This is the winner- Oooh! That’s so cool! And it’s watercolor! Yeah, I think
it’s a really cool piece and it has a beautiful backstory, so let’s get into it. RossDraws! A fan Drawing This beautiful piece was done by Aviizu who’s 16 years old, and I’m sorry if I’m mispronouncing any of these names. There were the time where
she didn’t like drawing, but then she saw Qinni’s art which inspired her to
start drawing again. And so Qinni was going under her fourth open-heart surgery and so this is a tribute to her and then a few artists organized an event to
support her under #StarsForQinni. Oh my god, that’s.. oh my god, I’m gonna cry. That’s so beautiful! I think that just tells us how life is sacred, we should
always be thankful about each breath that we take and never take life for
granted. And so let’s redraw this in honor of Qinni
and Aviizu and help celebrate the universe and our lives, so let’s do it! This is the progress so far — I’m trying
to get the foundation in, capture the essence at the moment, and then we can
add all this beautiful glitz and glam. I feel like it could head somewhere really
cool, so I’m just gonna keep working on it. In my previous in-depth tutorial where I
talk about hair, I talk about using the mixer brush to kind of blend everything
so that’s doing wonders to this painting. Just use your mixer brush and kind of [SPARKLE NOISES] Oooh- and smooth everything around and give it
like, you know, that nice painterly look that we all like. This is before and after. Ooh! This is before and after. I’m just trying to follow the form, making some nice shapes, yeah. Blending
all these strokes together. This piece is looking pretty cool so I’m gonna work on
it and I’ll check back soon. Hey guys, welcome back and here’s the
progress of our piece so far! We started from the sketch, the foundation, we lay
some colors on, and then we just started refining and this is where we are now. I
think the foundation is super strong, so it’s time to kind of spice it up and
give it that pizzazz. I’m gonna teach you guys how to make your paintings more
awesome in literally 10 seconds. I have my reference holder notoriously named on
my channel as my “second brain”- can pinpoint the one that are kind of starry.
Oooh! It’s a supernova and so I think I really
like this one. I’m gonna drop it in- I’m gonna set this one to maybe soft light. Oooh! Ooohoohoo, look at that! She’s like, bursting through the
supernova. Let’s try another one This is so pretty! I’m gonna put this one
in- Wooow! Oh my gosh, that was like five seconds! Hahahah. Now it’s really embodying what I’m originally envisioning. Mix the two a little bit, now she’s supernova girl! Hahaha! So any time you’re stuck and you want to spice
up your painting a little bit, find some reference or textures that you really
gravitate towards and play around with it, like that. So whenever I do fan redraw
episodes I love generating a moveset for the
character to bring it to life! And so let’s generate some awesome attacks,
let’s go. The first one is: Barrage Comet! Ooh that’s so cool! Battler Crashing Illumination! Bane Planetary Conjuration! Oh my god, that’s sounds like an ultimate. Glaring Assault. Yes! Our four moves are: Barrage Comet, Glaring Assault, Battler Crashing Illumination, and our ultimate Bane Planetary Conjuration. Ooh! She sounds so OP. I think I have a lot of potential so I’m
just gonna try to wrap it up and I’ll check back soon. Yo star girl! It’s color dodge time. Ooh man here we go! Here we go! Ooooohoohoohoo! Oh my god, she’s killing me! Barrage Comet! Glaring Assault! Battler Crashing Illumination! and now the ultimate: Bane Planetary Conjuration! Milo! Hi Milo! Give me a kiss! Thank you buddy. Hey guys, I hope you enjoyed the episode and thank you everyone who submitted for
this video, and a big THANK YOU to Aviizu for your wonderful submission. It’s
such a beautiful piece with a meaningful story so I hope I did it justice. And if
you want bonus content and video demos, I take you through the entire process on
how I create this painting, please check out my Patreon. What’s this? [GASP] W-wha? Milo! Wow it’s finally
that time of the year! Yes! Our extra-special Christmas sale starts next
Tuesday! Yes! November 26. Last year the response was so great and this year
we’re making it even bigger and better and so much more awesome, ’cause Milo is
running it this year! Right, buddy? We have so much new cool stuff. This is the first
time we have big posters! Yeah, so this is the new special Smash one that I haven’t
really shown anywhere, but we have Joker- and for the first time ever: both sides
of my Battle Princesses are on one poster! Every single order will receive a
mystery print as a gift and the first 200 orders will receive this exclusive
red Milo pin! This is special for the 2019 holiday season and also there’s
some deals where you can get a free shirt! The event goes live Tuesday, November 26
at 9AM. You can check out all the event details at Rossdraws.com/xmas. And if you want to win a book or a print, this video’s question is: what are
you thankful for? I want to make it more specific to right now, in the moment, maybe this year. I am super super super thankful for my best friend Milo. Right,
buddy? This year I feel like I’ve gotten a lot closer to Milo, which sounds weird
but it’s like a gut feeling and I’m so thankful [SMOOCH] for this [SMOOCH] guy [SMOOCH] because he is
literally the best, so. I love you Milo I’m so thankful for you, you’re my best
friend. Thanksgiving is such a beautiful time
because you really get to express how much you’re thankful for and who you’re
thankful for, so I hope you guys have a fantastic rest of your Thanksgiving.

  4. I am thankful for the amount of good people in my life that have helped through such hard times.
    These people have help me through my self-depreciation and when I discovered my anxiety they helped me through. When I discovered I had thalassemia they helped me deal with symptoms by literally just picking me up sometimes. When my anxiety got worse I had them to help me through my issues.
    So even though I don't celebrate thanksgiving I'd still like to thank all these people who have helped me through my hardships.

  6. I am really thankful to all my friends, that decided to not throw me out of their life because of my toxic ex relationship with my boyfriend.

  10. Yess quinni <3 I love her art so much and she is a role model for how much she has gone through but shes so strong. I really hope that one day soon she will be completely free from all these health problems

  11. I am extremely thankful for my family. For as long as I've been alive they have always been by my side. No matter what I do or how much stuff I've done, they're always here for me. My mom supports me in my art and most of my decisions. My sisters are always copying one way or another and I love them for it. And my friend may as well be my family because they're just as awesome. So I'm thankful for my friends, my family, and this life I've been given.

    And also for the creation of Billie Eilish.

  12. I am thankful for being given a chance to get a dog and having a family that allows me and encourages me to draw 🐶👩‍🎨🐶

  13. I am thankful for my friend Char. I met her after moving from IL to OR and she has brought back my love for drawing. I used to always carry a sketch book with me everywhere, but had some friends years ago that made drawing not fun anymore… and I have drawn in a very long time. Char and I have been encouraging each other and helping each other improve with our drawing. It is just a great feeling to want to sit down and draw every day, whether I am alone, or with her just doing our own thing and existing in the same space. I love her and I am so thankful she is in my life. ☺️💕

  19. I’m thankful for my cat Max. Our family has had a stressful year (stress from work, stress from our personal project, a miscarriage) but no matter how bad we felt Max who is super love able and goofy would always be there to make us laugh and cheer us up.

  20. That is a very touching illustration.
    I am thankful about my life. I had a big car crash 2 months ago and I wasn't harmed much. Something like that really opened my eyes about what things are really important in life and how the problems I worried about a lot are very tiny in perspective. Also, I might get my university degree in two weeks!

  21. I am thankful for still being here. I am thankful for my loved ones as they have helped me get through a very dark time. And if it wasn't for one of my loved ones I wouldn't be here today and I owe a lot to him. He is very special to me and each and every day I am thankful for having him in my life.

  22. 🌸 Answer 🌸
    I'm truly grateful for you Ross ❤️ I was in a really tough time with my art, always doubting myself and not really wanting to draw, so I took a year break from art. Although I started to draw again it never really had the same feelings behind it, and then I found your channel and you sparked my love for art again. I still doubt myself and have mental breakdowns concerning my art, but you constantly remind me that caring what people think about my art means nothing compared to what I think and put towards my own art. And for this I am very much thankful ❤️

  23. I am really thankful for my past self. It not only helped me to improve myself from my mistakes but also made me to cherish my present.

  24. i'm thankful for all my friends and the wonderful events for this year! i wouldn't had made it through all my struggles without them. 😀

  25. I'm thankful for the fact that everyone around me that I interact with is very caring and I wish that for everyone!

  26. Watching people draw amazingly makes me want to draw too, but when I do I get disappointed and discouraged when mine turns out more alike garbage.
    😞

  27. #starsforQuinni

    I have a favor to ask, I've been stuck with attack names lately, and I want to know what site do you go to when you generate these awesome attack names, be a lot cooler if someone would tell me 🙂

  28. ✨I'm Thankful for being able to see the happiness I can give to others with just a simple form of kindness!!🌈 ♥️(≧▽≦)

  29. I'm super thankful for people who appreciate the art that i am able to create. Even though i'm still a novice, people are so kind in giving comments about my art and i love that i can't even process how thankful i am 😭💕 and also. Thankful for the people who support me and of course to those who serve as my inspiration 😊🌸

  30. I am so thankful for the chance to be a mother to my son who was born early this year. It's also the first year I got to be a wife to my wonderful husband. This year our family has grown a lot together and I'm thankful for the experiences that have come to me.

  31. Please you look like master of professionals.😍

    Please🙏😢 man

  32. I'm thankful for my friends, family, and roommates for always being there to support each other whenever times get tough. If you guys are reading this I love ya!!!!

  33. Love your work Ross! What monitor are you drawing on? Is it one of the Wacom 32" Cintiqs? It looks huge! I've got a lowly 22", but now I'm screen jealous! LOL! Do you normally run in screen duplication mode or treat it as a separate monitor? I'm so out of practice with drawing (current work is design and TONS of photo manipulation – not a lot of chances for freehand work ) that I love watching your stuff in hopes of inspiring me to dust off the skills!

  34. This is your 1st video I'm seeing and I landed here from your IG page while looking for the link to your Art store. This video has given me so much joy!

    Big Ups Ross ❤️

  35. First of all, thank you for your videos, their fill with such nice energy and it makes smile everytime.

    And I´m very thankful for my family, we are always together , in the good and bad moments, they never had let me down, I´ll never find support like this in nobody else, they´re made of love

    Also, I hope Qinni will be free of this long fight she has been through for so much time
