SO MUCH BLUE! | Drawing Something Using Every BLUE PEN, PENCIL, MARKER, WATERCOLOR, ETC I Own.


*♪ mellow music ♪* If you’ve been an artist for any amount of time you’ve probably noticed that art supplies tend to accumulate around you. Many of these art supplies serve different purposes, and other ones are kind of redundant. And today I’m gonna find out which are which. heh And I’m gonna draw with every single blue art supply that I own. On the left of the screen in a ♪ neat little row ♪ I have all of my blue art supplies. And we’re going to start things off using my blue Prismacolor Col-Erase Pencil because it’s the only thing I have that can erase. And, you know what? I want to be able to sketch and erase, so… *comical music pause* There’s that. *giggle* I’m drawing pretty lightly. So I’m not gonna dwell too much time on this section of the drawing, but I did want to address what I’m drawing, and I knew it was going to be with the color blue. [gasps :P] So I had to draw something that would incorporate a lot of blue and I came to think, “what’s my favorite thing that’s blue?” and I kept coming back to the sky. I really like looking up at the sky and just staring straight up into this endless abyss, like it just continues… for eternity. I just think that’s awesome. heh So I wanted to draw that and I’m drawing a character that is very much inspired by the sky. I decided to do more of a daytime sky because of the colors that I had… and I thought, “ooh! Maybe her hair is a cloud and…”—and then when it came to the outfit, I was like well “What’s an outfit that could be inspired by the sky?” I thought, “maybe a… jumpsuit, like someone skydiving or… a flight attendant!” So… *snicker* Flight attendants what I eh—ultimately ended up with so she’s got like a little ascot and a… little peplum top. It’s not like inspired by any specific uniform. It’s kind of just… a mismatch of them. Hm! Then I erased everything so that the sketch was even lighter so that I could go over it with a line art and, I used this Ohuhu multi-liner [Fineliner 0.4] in a pretty dark blue. I have four of these [way to brag XD] and none of them have like an actual color name. So… just a blue Ohuhu Fineliner [0.4] This one… specifically… Since I have so many different blue multi liners. I wanted to switch them out pretty often. Otherwise, I was gonna have a lot of leftovers at the end. So I switched to this Staedtler [Triplus] Fineliner It’s a little bit of a lighter color blue, and since her hair was going to be clouds I thought a lighter blue would be better for lining her eyebrows. Moving on to a darker version of that Staedtler Fineliner, um, I was able to use this to do the exact same thing that I use for the Ohuhu fineliner. So you’ll see where I’m getting to the point where I’m realizing some of my art supplies are kind of redundant, and maybe I don’t need to own all of these things, *giggle* and we’re only three art supplies in so far. So… yeah… *snicker* I also managed to draw the two worst hands I think I’ve drawn in like a year. *Music pause* So… let’s just… pay tribute to those hm? So yeah, I used that darker Staedtler to basically outline the entire outfit. Then I switched to another Ohuhu fineliner, and added some—like sort of dimension, so like darker lines under some of the sections where like, you know, light wouldn’t be hitting if this was a 3d object. And then I switched to a lighter Ohuhu fineliner to add— to add the line art of her scarf that’s around her neck. And I also just sort of went around where I’d already put line art to—with the same color to kind of make it a bit bolder. Then using my final blue Ohuhu fineliner, I just sort of went over the same lines again. Mostly because I didn’t really know what to do with this because I had so many of these and this is where yeah *mouth pop* redundancy, right? bored of using fineliners I decided to completely switch up the medium and use water colors. This is a cerulean blue and I used it to paint in the sky background. Um… I… kind of messed up at first so it’s a bit blotchy. But I gotta figure out what I was doing as I go along and I put down a lot of this color. I think I spend a lot more time than I plan on showing you with it. But yeah. Just I wanted there to be some texture because there’s suppose to be a lot of clouds, but kinda wish I’d been a little bit smoother, especially since when I go over this with a lot more of the art supplies, you’ll see on the left there still a lot more to go, *uhyuck* I had to find places to put those and it ended up being a lot of it in the sky as well. Um… so it doesn’t really matter that this ended up being kind of blotchy so… Next I went in with this Prussian blue water color, and darkened up at the lower half of the sky. I had found this reference on Pinterest of this, um— It was a still a blue sky, but the stars were just starting to appear in like so it was like just becoming nighttime, and it was s00oo pretty, and I was very inspired to darken the sky because of that and I’m so glad that I did because later, I do something that ♪ we’ll see when I get there. ♪ You’ll just have to wait. *snicker* Painting the sky, I definitely realized that I quite enjoy using watercolors as a medium. So not only am I learning which were supplies I have that are redundant, but I’m also learning which supplies I prefer to use. So yeah, it’s a pretty cool exercise… I guess. The next art supplies I used was this blue Posca pen, [which is] something I don’t have a lot of experience with, [but] I know that they’re kind of like opaque markers, and I basically just used this, since it’s kind of a dark color, to create a bold line at the bottom of the… illustration and sort of faded it out with strokes to add texture. That was a bit [of] experimenting on my part. Next up, I’m sure you’ve used one of these before in your lifetime. It is a blue Crayola magic marker, and honestly, I can say after having finished this illustration now, um, this was not my least favorite art supply to use so… I had a lot of fun with this one. I basically used it to sort of blend out some of the Posca and then also to create sort of like a… cartoony harsh shadow under some of the clouds. Next, I moved into my Ohuhu alcohol-based markers, which I ♪ love. ♪ Um, I have several blue ones. So… this is a bit of a process. The first one is this one and I… —This is kind of where things start getting *sniff* pretty redundant. I basically just used it to blend out the sky, and make it darker, and like try to create as smooth a gradient as possible Next up, (and this is quite fitting) I use this Windsor Newton brush marker in the color sky blue. *angelic “ahh”* So, I’ve basically applied this [to] as many places as possible because I’m like, well, this is like literally the color of [the] sky. So I guess I need to use a lot of it. Tah. That was my logic anyway. Heh. After that, I used this Crayola crayon and… *sigh of regretful resentment* If there was any art supply that I would have like… uh… purposefully left out and pretended I didn’t own it would have been these crayons. Like *sigh* I feel like they just didn’t add to the picture. I mean they added a lot of texture, but not texture that I very much like. So…¯_(ツ)_/¯ Oh! And because crayons are… you know waxy, It’s kind of hard to build other things up on top of them. Although I try! Just wait and see. Haha. Next up, I used another Windsor Newton brush marker. This one was, “cool aqua,” and I used this to color in the skin. After I had colored in the first arm, I kind of decided to “artistically” only color the top half of the skin, like there was light Illuminating from underneath her in some way. I really liked the way that looked especially on the face. I don’t know if it makes any sense, but the one arm I didn’t do that with, and I kind of wish I had but… oh well! *snicker* um, I really like this color, and I also noticed, because I swatched out all of these colors beforehand so that I would kind of know where maybe I’d like to put them when it came to drawing the actual illustration, and I noticed that… —Oh! But first, I’m using this Molotow water based marker. Heha. But yeah, just because the color is blue doesn’t mean they all look the same, like there are a cool blues and there are warm blues, and then I also had some sort of grēēn blues. And this is like the lightest of my green blues, and I purposely decided, and you’ll see this as I continue on this… artistic journey, that, heha, I decided to use all of my green blues on the character to try and separate her from the background. Can I just say I really like this Molotow marker? Like I totally forgot I even own these. I think they came in a ScrawlrBox, like… yeeaars ago, and they’re basically water colors that are in, um, like a dual tip, brush pen, marker thing. And so I’m able to get—I can like layer them up and get more… shading that way, and I don’t know I just had a lot of fun with these, and I think I’m gonna have to dig out the other colors and play with them again. Using another one of my greenish blue art supplies. I’m using the Edding 1200. This is like a metallic and opaque pen marker thing. I’m not entirely sure which one you would consider it, but it’s really really cool, and like it’s hard to go over the same place more than once [because] it starts to like scratch away at itself, so I had to be very… um… pur-pose-ful in where I would stroke the paper with this. *giggle* That was a really weird way to say that. [yes, yes it was] And literally only because I really enjoyed using this pen, I decided to add like a little bit of detail to the bottom of her skirt. Like a little embroidery design of like clouds and dots uh-huh. But yeah, I really like this pen. I think it stands out as one of my favorite blue art supplies. Using another alcohol-based marker—this is the Style File marker, and ahaha, it’s definitely the stinky uncle of my blue art supplies. pee-yew! *giggle* ˢᵗᶦⁿᵏʸ Next up is the Ohuhu marker dual tip thing. It’s called a marker. I would consider it a brush pen more so [than that]. I use these mostly for bullet journaling. So it was kind of interesting trying to use them for an actual illustration. I really like-how-like royal and dark and blue this one is so I used that to darken up again that bottom edge of the sky. After that I used this blue Chalkola marker. This is equivocally a uh… dry erase marker with texture, so it’s not really meant for paper, but I managed to find some place to stick it on this illustration It’s also kind of opaque, so… I had to be careful where I put it. Another one of my go-to “faves,” this is the Paper Mate uh, blue highlighter Before I owned like any alcohol-based markers these were basically what I used because you could layer them up and you know, get some nice shading going on. So I definitely still recommend these highlighters. I love them. And these two I apparently forgot to film close-ups, but these are just two very basic Crayola colored pencils. I have like a darker blue and a lighter blue, and I used these To shade around the face because I had such a good experience shading the face when I did that Crayola challenge a couple weeks ago. So I was like hey, I—that really turned out pretty well. So, I feel very comfortable going in on this face and like adding a little bit of like blue blush and [a] little nose shading. ♪ too-hoo ♪ [I’m] still using colored pencils. I have this Koh-I-Nor watercolor pencil. So, I basically just used my paintbrush, dipped in water, and then dipped it on the end of the… Ahaha… um… the pencil and then applied that to the illustration that way, so I didn’t have to like… draw—actually draw with it. Aha. And this really helped to like smooth out some of that background texture that I got from the crayon and some of the markers. So, I was happy to have another watercolor. I meant to keep this video under ten minutes, but that’s not gonna happen. [unfortunately for the me :/] So I’m gonna talk a little bit faster. Hehe. These are sharpies. I’m sure you know what they are. I used those in these illustrations as well. I had three blue sharpies. So, three blue sharpies were used on this illustration in different sections of it. Is that vague enough for you? Hehe. [Makes my life easier :P] But yeah, I noticed that a lot of the colors I had left were all very dark, and I wasn’t sure where I was going to be able to put them in the illustration. So I decided to add some like shadows of clouds in the background with these darker blues, and I think that really helped make—like add depth to the background. And so yeah, I’m kinda happy with that. And even here my third and lightest Sharpie was really really dark. So, I was able to add more dark clouds with that. And my final colored pencil, the Faber Castel Goldfaber Aqua, which is actually a watercolor pencil, but I just used two as a pencil, and I added more shading to the face [which] darkened that up a little bit. I previously used a blue… Ohuhu alcohol-based marker in this illustration already, but here are three more that I owned, and I used these as well. Basically just going about the picture using the ones that are the lightest and the darkest for different things. skIHgh *deep inhale* Oh, this commentary is really… running out of things to say. [One might say it is getting a little… “redundant?” :P] Not only is there redundancy in the art supplies. There is redundancy in the commentary. [Spoke too soon XD] *growls like a velociraptor* Oh hey! With this one I totally forgot this thing even existed! This is like the Sakura micron [pigma] brush pen, I think. It’s blue so… I had to use it and I’ve managed to luckily find it. It was actually on my desk this whole time, but it was like, you know It was in one of those cups that like has art supplies in it that you like never use, but like it looks cute because it’s there on your desk here and it just says, “hey, I’m an artist! Look, this is the desk of an artist because it’s a cup art supplies” [cups don’t talk O.o] And these are my last two blue Ohuhu dual tip brush pens. I actually used the lighter one to shade the kneecaps which was an interesting choice. And I used the brush side of the pen for that and then for the darker one, I actually used the… fine point… to… add like sort of—not texture um… Just [to] sort of outline the shape of hair in the cloud of her hair *makes a noise not unlike to a pogo stick compressing from a rather large height* If that makes any sense at all. Hands down the aesthetically weirdest marker I own is the Artline Stix brush pen. Uh, It looks like a Lego, [I] still don’t know why… [it] just does. [maybe so you can stick Lego bricks to it?] This is the faber Castell Pitt artist pen in a metallic blue. Since this one’s metallic I used it to just add little earrings to her ear. Ahaha. Who would’ve thought? Earings… in an ear. Hm. We’re really nearing the end here. *oohoohooh* Okay! So this is the blue jelly roll pen. [I] didn’t use this for much basically just used it to uh, darken her eyelashes, [and] make it look like she’s wearing some ♪ falsieess. ♪ [I] have another Crayola crayon, another dark blue color. This I actually used to um… sort of send some of those wispy air clouds further into the background by shading over them a bit, and I kind of like the texture on them I think it it’s kind of cool [I] don’t love it. But hey, [you] do what you got to do. Oh, and then I realized I forgot the color in her legs. So, here I’m trying to figure out which marker I’ve used for that because I used so many since then [so] I couldn’t remember, but luckily I did go with the right one. It was that Windsor Newton marker. So I just shaded that. And then we reached the final art supplyyyyyyyyyy! WOOHoohoohₒₒₕₕₒₒ This is the Holbein acrylic gouache, in… you guessed it! Blueww! I used this to soften up any like harsh edges that are left over from the less forgiving art supplies, and basically add blue to anywhere that I felt still needed to be bluer. Ahaha. But I wasn’t done there! Hehe—But wait there’s more! I decided to go in with a white gel pen, [Cheater! :P] this is the Signo uniball white gel pen, and add stars to the darker sections of the sky like the night is just starting to fall. But yeah, I mentioned earlier that I saw this picture on Pinterest, that was so gorgeous. So I just needed to emulate that in some small way so that I would never forget how beautiful that picture was. So yeah, I did that and I really like it. I feel like it adds a little extra pop or zing of interest to this illustration. I also was planning on making her hair of clouds stand out more from the background, but looking at it now, I kind of like that I left it sort of wispy. Like it almost blends with the background because I feel like that makes her hair more cloud like in a way because it’s more part of the background I’unno you can let me know if you feel the same way. Anyway, this was me using I think it was—did you count while I was making them? I think it was.. 39 different blue art supplies. Yeah, it was definitely a fun challenge. I know which supplies I don’t really care to ever use again, I know which ones work really well, I know which ones were redundant, and I also kind of… rekindled some love for like those Molotow markers. *clears throat* And yeah, I—I-I’ve I’m really glad I did this. So, thank you guys for suggesting it. Last time I did this with the purple art supplies almost every comment was like, “Do this with this color!” “Do this with that color!” So I decided to do it with blue. Um, I hope you enjoyed uh—yeah, watching me use all of my blue art supplies, and yeah! Thank you guys for watching. I’ll see you guys all next week, and I hope you have a ♪ delicious evening full of waffles! ♪ Byeeeee! [Wow, doesn’t that syrup look delicious?! I’ve never seen that before! It looks amazing XD] *end music* *cutlery and plate sounds* [Welcome back to CC reviews! I rate this video 7.8/10 “Too much blue.” ¯_(ツ)_/¯ See yah next time!… Maybe ;)]

  15. I'm addicted to these videos where you use only one color. This one in particular is gorgeous! I love the stars.

  16. This is what I want to do, get paid for doing what I love and sharing it with the world. I love drawing, creating, and using what's left of my imagination. I feel like imagination goes away after you grow up, but if you exercise it, it won't, and I've been creating art since I was 3, so I still have a huge imagination

  17. So something about this piece didn't quite look right and it took me forever to figure it out but here it is – you shaded the skin as though the light source was coming up from below, but the clothing was shaded as though the light source was coming from the top right corner. Loved the whole though especially the cloud hair ❤️

  18. If ur following tutorials and think “why does it look ugly?” THIs is why

    Because we need the exact stuff they have and if u have it and it still turned out ugly just wait your inner artist will soon come

  19. I’ve got an artist question whenever you get art supplies why are there more blue than any other colour like SO MUCH BLUE for no reason

  20. I have no idea why she thinks the hands she draws are bad. They are great. You should do a using every art supply i hate video. id love to see u challenge urself with that

  21. The sky was super blueeey but the illustration of the lady attendant type girl was just a DREAM! I just love your drawings and byee

  22. I find you’re drawing with every colour so relaxing. I don’t sleep well & I find these videos soothing along side interesting. Music isn’t harsh & your voice isn’t harsh either. The process of your art is relaxing also

  23. Here’s a crayon tip. Put the crayon where you want it, then scrape the wax off. It stains the paper but you don’t get a waxy texture on your paper.
