Drawing in TONED TAN sketchbooks!


Both: Hi art friends! Steph: I’ve got this really big toned tan sketchbook. I actually thought I was ordering the same one as Adam cause he’s got this little A5-y one and when it arrived and it was this big I was like “Yup, there is a definite size difference between these two.” Adam: I’m jealous now, yours it like A4. Steph: Adam’s is completely full so we’re going to be using mine and I’m going to be kind enough to loan him a sheet. because normally, I’m quite precious with my sketchbooks and I don’t like ripping out pages. Adam: It’s serious the glasses are on. Steph: Yeah. It’s very serious now the glasses are on. So something I think that a lot of you have been waiting to hear about uh the results from our Crayola Marker Maker and I’ll really quickly get through this because a lot of you watching for the toned tan stuff will be like, ‘I don’t care about that.’ So we did a mystery marker and we asked you guys to name it. Adam: Yeah, do you remember this guy? Steph: Aaaand, drum roll. I’ll put the winner up on the screen. *drum noises* *laughter* Adam: There were so many entries and they’re all really cool. Steph: The top one, and I hope I’m saying your name right was Janset Nil saying that the name should be Radioactive Mold. There were two other people who were so close to winning and I just wanted to quickly mention this which was, someone had said Jeff The Evil Pen and that comment completely vanished so I don’t know whether you deleted that so… Adam: Where did Jeff go?! Steph: No idea where Jeff The Evil Pen went. And also someone said My Soul cause it’s kind of like a black color. Adam: Aaah. Steph: But that one vanished too- Adam: They were defeated by the Radioactive Mold. Steph: Yeah, they’ve been killed by it. *laughter* Um, and on social media we’ll draw out the label and I’ll put the sticker on it Adam: Yeah, we’ll crown it it’s new name. Steph: Let’s get into the tanned sketchbook. Adam: Let’s do this. Steph: It’s so new. Oooh! Adam: And that’s it. Oh, there you go. There you go. Steph: I can feel it tearing my heart strings as I do this. Have you guys ever used a tanned sketchbook before? This is like the first one that I’ve ever owned. Adam: Yeah, guys. Let us know as well. Tanned sketchbooks are one of my most favourite sketchbooks to doodle in now. Steph: I always felt like I was missing out because I like own tons of like white pens and stuff but I could barely use them before. But you can use so much of them in these books. Adam: Hm! Steph: I’ve grabbed a massive sheet of cardboard that I’ve cut to the same size of this page. Adam: Have you cut it? Steph: Yeah, I have. Well, it’s a similar size. Adam: What did you measure it with?! *laughter* Steph: And we’ve both just grabbed like a handful of different, like, markers and pens. I’ve mostly brought like, Cool Gray Promarkers but seriously, any markers will do. Adam: And I’ve brought some pencils and Posca pens. Steph: A couple of white ink pens if your looking for recommendations: I like the white Posca brush pen and I’ve got a white Jelly Roll. What’s this even called? Adam: It’s the Zig Posterman one isn’t it? Steph: Yeah, you usually use this one. And we’ve got a little thin white Posca as well. Adam: These are really new. I hadn’t realized that Poska made pens this small so I really like the fine liners that they do. Steph: Personally, I find this one probably the most effective. Adam: I think that has the best pigment out of them all. Steph: Yeah. I do as well. I think it’s actually like a chalk marker but yeah, if you’re looking for a good white, cause a few people have asked me on Instagram. That’s the one I recommend. Adam: That one! Steph: So, what are you gonna draw? Adam: I kind of already have an idea. What about you? You’ve been very quiet in this one. Do you have any ideas? Steph: Well, with this sketchbook, what I’ve been doing recently –ah, let me see if I can go back a couple pages to show you– I’ve been doing like people from like fashion blog websites. Adam: I love those. Steph: And I just do them straight in marker, I don’t do any pencil sketching or whatever, and I reckon I might just do that in a doodle date. So this could go horrifically wrong. I love watching you sketch in real time. *laughter* Adam: It’s like the pressure’s on now. *mumbling* Steph: Is that the little nose you just put on that line there? Adam: Well, sometime yeah. Sometimes I’ll do a little circle but you can do a massive nose, like little button nose. It’s more so to let me know where I want to put it cause sometimes I want to give them a high nose or a really small low nose. Steph: Have you got a high or a low nose? Adam: I think I’ve just got a big nose. *laughter* Steph: Oh, I want to get in close to see these details. Adam: And these are going to be some hands. A good way to, uh– with hands that I found is to just do a basic shape first, cause I get asked that sometimes. Steph: You’ll have to do a tutorial on hands one day. Adam: Oh, God. The world is not ready. *laughter* Adam: I’ve got this thing chasing me around. *groaning* Steph: Me with the camera? Adam: Yeah. *laughter* Steph: Oh, I’m just chasing wherever your hands going right now. Adam: We got this really nice Faber Castell rubber the other day. I’ve torn the label off but it’s a really good– Oh, look! Look at this little dude. Steph: *gasping* Oh no, what is that? Adam: Don’t hurt him. You should draw him! Steph: No, I’m not going to draw him! Can you help me? I’m too scared to move. Adam: He can probably fly but don’t– Steph: What do you mean he can fly?! Adam: Just… promise me you’ll just chill. Steph: He looks tiny on camera but he’s really big in real life. Adam: He’s not. Look at my finger. Steph: Don’t poke it. Don’t poke it. Don’t poke it. Don’t poke it. Don’t– Adam: How am I going to save him? Steph: I don’t know. Adam: Let me have a look at him. Come here you. Steph: Ooooooooh. Adam: Come on. Come one, there we go. Steph: Oh my God, he’s on your finger. *Eeeeeeew* Adam: So you just stay there. The hands are really just nice and warm so he’ll probably just want to chill out there for a minute. You just stay there. Steph: I’m not going anywhere. *laughter* Well, I’m traumatized. Adam: Okay, I took care of the bug. Steph: Yeah, the bugs gone that’s why I’m smiling. Adam: –go right. He wouldn’t let go of my finger. I was like, ‘You can go now. You be free,’ and he wouldn’t let go so I just started to blow him like Pfff *blowing sounds* and he went like “Nooooo” Adam: But he was okay he was fine- Steph: He must have really liked you Adam: He ran away so he’s safe. He’s okay Steph: Have you seen my cute new jacket that I’ve got as well? Adam: She’s a member of my fan club. Steph: There’s tons of clothes in fashion lately that have had an A on them so I always buy it because I’m like “Oh Team Adam” hahah I’m so lame Adam: Where’s my squad at?? Steph: Anyway, back to the purpose of the video and not bugs and jackets Adam: We should both incorporate a bug somewhere in our pictures Steph: okay but I’ve found a reference lady that I want to use Adam: so what have we got going on? Steph: I really like to play around with the shapes Adam: Look at that, boom! That’s no fear, right there! Steph: I like the scratchyness Adam: so is this the face? Steph: yep! Adam: that’s obviously some kind of neck thing going in Steph: This is how I do most my drawings to be honest Adam: and all you’re doing is looking at your reference and then going back Steph: yeah just trying to simplify the shapes Adam: that’s something that I’m trying to get better at this year Steph: ugh my hair’s in the way trying to draw hair and mine’s interrupting me Steph: that’s how you know I’m getting down to business I’ve got my geggs on and I’ve got my bobble in Adam: *sings* Lets get down to business! Steph: Do any of you guys call glasses, geggs? It’s a very North Eastern English term Adam: I’d never heard that til we met hun are we going to get down to business? I want to sing Mulan to you again Steph: oh you always used to sing Mulan Adam: EY Mulan is a good film Steph: I like Mulan, I’m not complaining! Adam: What’s this? Is this the hair? Steph: mhm! I usually go in and neaten up the shapes afterwards Adam: you’re just getting the rough ones in first Steph: Ooh I know, she doesn’t have an ear in the reference. I’m sure she has one in real life but lets add one is this even the right grey I’m using probably not Adam: it doesn’t have to be perfect though! Steph: I might darken up the neck Adam: yeah because that adds a bit of depth then that’s pretty good lookin Steph: I might do the hair straight on this side so we’ve got straight on curve going on does anyone else like using chisel tips aswell? I’m asking you so many questions haha I’m like an annoying interviewer Adam: People are going to be like, I DIDN’T STUDY FOR THIS TEST! Steph: Tell me your favourite colour! What’s your favourite animal? Adam: can you tell me pi to 9 decimal places? Steph: DO YOU LIKE DOGS? So can you tell us some information about your drawing? Adam: You’ve never asked this before! Where’s this come from!? Adam: It’s like this is becoming a pop quiz Steph: What emotions does this evoke? Adam: Freedom. Steph: hahaha FREEEEDOM Does it evoke freedom of speech Adam: noooo, freedom in the sense that you’re free to do whatever you want to do Steph: haha you can have her screaming a curse word Adam: ahhahaha YAY Steph: so many words I could say right now but I’ll spare your ears Adam: You are not going to say those words! Steph: EY in one of our last videos you said purple nurple, which everyone in the comments told us it means bruised nipples! Adam: FREEDOM TO THE BRUISED NIPPLES Steph: ahha oh dear Adam: no she’s not freeing those! Steph: yeah she can keep them under wraps Adam: Oh geez
Okay now I’m going to do something that might confuse you a bit Steph: oh dear these are going to be bruised nipples are they Adam: yeah they’re flying bruised nipples “FLY MY PRETTIES” I never draw frizzy hair all that much Steph: I have frizzy hair if you want to use mine for reference and its really satisfying to watch you look very stern though Adam: TAME THAT FRIZZ. Steph: You have to channel that frizzy energy Adam: You gotta own that frizz gurl Steph: Adam’s been so excited to do a tan sketchbook video like we had a few ideas for videos that we could be doing for today Adam: and I’m like… how about a tan sketchbook one??? Steph: and I’m like how about this suggestion, or this suggestion.. or this other suggestion Adam: those are good, but it’s not a tan sketchbook Steph: do you like saying “TAN SKETCHBOOK” Adam: I do it’s one of my favourite things Steph: lots of people have mentioned that one of your favourite words seems to be “pooches” Adam: because I like Pooches Steph: do you like pooches and tan sketchbooks Adam: I should’ve drawn a pooch in the tan sketchbook that would’ve made my day Steph: EY why are you rubbin out all that frizzy hair Adam: when I was doing it I was like “yeah, this is pretty good.” and then when I stopped I was like “that’s a mess” I might just make it a bit more less busy lets see what you’re getting up to, give me that camera Steph: this is the white posca pen brush, it’s not the most opaque one that we have and if you want to get more of the paint out, there’s this little button on the top if you click it a few times it’ll bring more paint to the brush Adam: that’s important to note, only the brush Posca pens have those that’s a really cute outfit already *knock knock* Steph: Someone’s at the door? Adam: I have to go art friends, the door needs me *door opening sounds* Steph: Adamo, what was at the door? Adam: Oh it was Brindle’s guinea pig sticks Steph: HAHA you made a big deal out of this? Adam: I just thought people might be curious about what’s at the door .. and that’s what was at the door! Steph: haha there you go Adam: I’ll feed him some of those later Steph: He’ll enjoy them! Bumble enjoys eating them aswell and Bumble doesn’t even need them hahaha Adam: what were we doing before we were interrupted? Steph: I coloured in some more of her chest Adam: I really like the little strap details, that’s really cute Steph: I always get nervous when I go straight in with ink that I might make arms too long but sometimes it can add to the character design I might add some details on the dress too because you know me, I like patterns Adam: if you were a marker, what colour would you be? Steph: Warm grey Adam: want to know something else? I jsut noticed your coat says North Sailing Academy Steph: haha you know me, I love my North Sailing I love putting in the details of the ears Adam: and that’s a Pigma brush pen isn’t it? Steph: there’s a really nice dark pigment in this pen Adam: there’s a nice variation in the thickness of the line too Steph: OOH I’ve just started to realise what you’re working on there Adam: WHAT ARE THEY… Steph: Are they little stylised birds? Adam: that’s what I’m hopefully going for, yeah! Steph: aww I was drawing some birds the other day Adam: you know, that’s what inspired me to give them a go Steph: awww on my drawing I’ve started to draw a really, really big white smile in With this method you can lay in your entire base, because when I work digitally I tend to work from a silhouette and then I’d build ontop of it with layers so it means you can layer white ontop of darks, but obviously with something like watercolours you have to work from your lights to your darks awww look at all these little birdies Adam: we’re getting there I think Steph: he says as he rubs most of it out haha Adam: “BE GONE” but do you get what she’s trying to do now? she’s trying to like, flap with the birds Steph: you should give her bread in her hands Adam: Wha? Why?? Steph: people feed birds don’t they Adam: I’ve never seen someone flap their arms with their fists closed full of bread Steph: She could have a French loaf in both hands Adam: hahah but then it’d look like she’s trying to smack the birds with it! ooh she’s got legs out of nowhere! Steph: yeah and some facial features I’ve started to put in that I haven’t finished ahha Adam: it looks like she has a jelly belly jellybean on her face Steph: I need to do some really little details and I’m nervous to do these Adam: ooh here we go! Steph: I never know what character’s are going to look like until I’m finished Adam: that’s all part of the fun though! Steph: then I’ll put some little nostrils in Adam: that looks really good I need to play catch up really soon Steph: I really, really want to quickly say thank you so much to whoever the anonymous persons are that submitted some language transcriptions on our channel Adam’s birthday video is now available in Spanish Adam: that’s incredible, thank you! Steph: and the birthday doodle challenge is now in Portugese and someone even helped me transcript some of the Screentone video because I transcript the videos into English and I do it all myself and as the videos get longer, it takes us longer to transcript and to do 3 videos it’s been taking me about 7 hours Adam: it takes a looong time so we just really appreciate it Steph: whenever you guys help me with that stuff, seriously! You never tell me who you are and I want to know who you are because I feel like I owe you a big hug you’ve helped me out SO much! Adam: we know how long it takes so we really appreciate you guys doing it Steph: I literally have no idea why someone would decide to do that for fun but yeah thank you guys so, so, so, so much! ooh you can get such a thick, dark line out of a pencil Adam: oh it’s because it’s the 10B, these pencils are really soft Steph: look at all the Mitsubishi pencils he’s hoarding over here Adam: I have a problem! Steph: you know what I’ve just realised we haven’t done yet? Adam: hmm? Steph: THE BUG Adam: oh yeah! we’re definitely going to add it in! I’m going to put him right on this little piece of hair Steph: ugh I always get bugs in my hair, it’s one of the worst consequences of having light coloured hair in Summer I’ll show you whereabouts I put the bug in mine if you want! Adam: ohh Steph: I put it over here Adam: oh wow you can definitely see him Steph: I thought it might look like a cool bug tattoo Adam: she’s like “gotta keep it together for the selfie” I’m giving the bug a gold butt Steph: oh yeah I can JUST see it Adam: what have you been doing? Steph: well I had a very good reference infront of me so she’s now stood next to Brindle’s sticks Adam: ah look at that, it’s even got a pig on it Steph: should we go brindle.. should we go brindle *stumbles over words* Adam: should we go “brindle” him in? Steph: awwww have you come in for some sticks?? Steph & Adam: you’re going to make such a mess, Brindle! Steph: are you running off with it haha?! Adam: if you could hold a little pencil we could do a doodledate with you he said it’s been a while since he’s been in a doodledate so he’s going to behave himself Steph: can I put this behind you? Adam: okay Brindle, you stay there for me a second Steph: Subscribe if you’ve enjoyed it and if you’re already subbed then thank you very much! Adam: thanks for joining us every Sunday guys, we always appreciate it DOOODLE DATE Steph: P.S Brindle’s gone home and he’s left a REALLY big mess

  15. Hi guys…Toned sketchbooks are awesome!!!! Your blacks, reds, browns and WHITE pencils, markers, fineliners etc WERE MADE for Toned Setchbooks. I have to be honest, for years just drawing on white paper, I had to step out of my comfort zone, and I'm so glad I did, they are amazing. I especially love to draw in reds and browns, like the Renaissance artists used to, I just love that sketchy rough look especially in those earthy colours. Although the quality of my artwork is questionable… however they are so much fun to draw in. Real fun video to watch as always..love and best wishes to you both.

  16. For doodling in school, my mum used to buy me a three set of mini-tan toned sketchbooks from a shop called flying tiger. Speaking of which. Please Google this shop! They sell so many art supplies. It's in like, every city mall in Britain. It's based in Denmark, but the art supplies there are actually kinda good and REALLY affordable. Please just check it out!

  17. The bug gets on Adam’s finger, I’m watching intently, my hair moves on its own tickling my neck…my heart stops. Been binge watching you guys at random and you have changed my life, for the better.

  18. Hi my name is claudia and I had a video idea for you two to do.
    You could do a crayola art supplies challenge only using crayola supplies ps I live in new Zealand and love watching you guys xx

  19. You guys are so naturally funny I had to watch this twice. My reward was when you wanted to “Brindle” in the pig. So cute. So many funny moments!

  20. Steph: it’s like a tear in my heart

    Me: the songs on the radio are ok but my taste in music is your face and it takes a song to come around to show you how your the tear in my heart I’m alive your the tear in my heart I’m on fire your the tear in my heart
