This ORDINARY Tool is better than Tombow MONO zero eraser


So here we have this ordinary whitener and the manufacturing company is PICASSO and its a metal tip whitener which costs about 1.5 or 2 dollars and i’ll compare this whitener with this Tombow MONO Zero Eraser which costs about $21 in pakistan its a 2.3mm round tip mono eraser and i’ll test both the tools on a darker shade using this 7B pencil So lets make 6 consecutive shades here we’ll test the whitener on these left three shades and the mono eraser on the right side i’m gonna keep the darkness same for all the shades So First o all i’m gonna show you the Dot Technique I know its the obvious thing
that a whitener can make dots But i just wanted to show
you where you can use these dots SO the technique for making fine & small dots is to clean your whitener on a rough page and start hitting the page
lightly with the tip of whitener Always remember to keep
the whitener in vertical position I recently used these type
of dot in the hyperrelistic drawing of an eye you can also watch this video later and the 2nd technique
is to make random texture with whitener the overall process is same, you just
have to move the tip around to make different shapes i used this technique is the eyes of this drawing Now the third one is making a gradient with whitener you can make whatever shape you want and you can easily shade it with a brush or stump you can even add pencil shades on whitener highlight. Now lets compare these
whitener highlights with a MONO eraser As you can see i am unable to
add extra white dots with this eraser and i can even add these textures with this eraser and as you can see the shape of the eraser is ruined because of these darker shades and also i am unable to add
a perfect gradient with this Mono eraser i’m not asking you to throw away your erasers Mono is awesome in its own way! but i think an ordinary whitener
works better in case of highlights Another plus point of using a whitener is that you can remove
the highlights easily and whenever you want just grab a sharp metal piece like a knife or something and you can peel the highlghts with a single stroke or you can even add a texture inside a highlight or even fill it with a pencil So that’s all for Now ! if you are new to my channel i would love to have you subscribed because i upload new content every wednesday and saturday So, Thank you so much for watching! & Have a nice Day !

  1. From Venezuela. I have used "" Liquid paper ".paper mate .. with good experience. It is the language barrier.

  2. You forgot to say: you must use it, only at the end of the drawing … and if you do not agree to it! or delete it.

  3. Thank you jiiรฌiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜‡โœŒ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ™

  4. Very interesting technique. I notice when you scrape the white off it's dry and crumbly. Won't it fall off over time or can it be fixed onto the paper?

  5. The whitener is great for dark Graphite and just drawing with pencils, but i use the tombow eraser for eraseing the extra pencil lines after tracing with pen. I donโ€™t know what to get!!!

  6. I didn't like the first video I saw of your but just seen this. You've earned yourself a subscriber sir. Thank you for sharing your method with us.

  7. I do not recommend the Generals Factis BM2 because it doesnโ€™t erase as well as a regular eraser. I used it and instead it just did lines on my drawing. Do not recommend at all.

  8. Where on Earth are you paying $21 for the mono eraser. I payed ยฃ6 (about $8-10) off Amazon. Surely you can also get it on Amazon for the same price?

  9. Hi Ali. I love your drawings. How would you draw this: I am drawing my cat. I need a few white whiskers against the textured background of fur. I have tried indenting with a sharp point but this doesn't work so well when the background is built up in layers. The indents get filled in. What would you do?

  10. I know you're in Pakistan, but in America you can buy a tombow mono zero for about $4.50, which makes this video very misleading. A two dollar difference isn't exactly a deal breaker. Personally I use both in my work. Sometimes you might not want to erase it completely, but still need the precision of a Tombow. And as others have already mentioned, a whitener (or correction pen) is a final step should you need pure white highlights.

  11. Tombow mono eraser costs just 200 rupees in India, which is only about 3 US dollars. But a Camel whitener only costs about 25 Rupees.

  12. I use uniball white gel pen its just like whitener but a pen its works perfect for me and you should try too love from india ๐Ÿ˜€

  13. You can achieve those same effects with a kneed eraser and an eraser if you know what you're doing. You don't necessarily need to use a Tombow and if you use a white liquid paper, I can most probably assure you that with time it'll chip off.

  14. Arguably, one's not supposed to use an electric eraser on dark areas; one should plan ahead and leave the areas to-be-highlighted a lighter value, so it's easier to remove with an eraser.
    So of course if you push that pencil down with a 7B, no eraser on the planet will whiten it, so it's defeating the purpose.
    Lastly, using just a pencil (eraser) can add value as it's not mixed media. Using mixed media is often considered "cheating", or at least the visual impact will be explained away by some saying "ah, not so difficult with white paint". Learning a traditional technique is a worthwhile personal investment.

  15. Dang it! I just ordered my 1st mono eraser yesterday. Had I seen this just 24 hours ago I'd have gotten the white corrector instead >.<

  16. What I use every day while making a charcoal drawing for high highlights….

    My school correction pen ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  17. This video is very misleading.

    Lifting very dark solid work is not the intended use of the Tombow MONO zero eraser. In fact, I doubt any eraser is going to be able to lift such dark values. So this comparison is completely nonsensical.

  18. I just bought the tomboy 2.3 mono eraser from blick art store for $4.95. I also bought a derwent battery operated eraser for $11

  19. I'm very interested in drawing realistic drawings and your videos are very helpful…
    Just keep going in giving tips to us like this… Thank you so much…
