Portrait Sketch Video On YouTube

My most resent post on my YouTube channel.
Done in AutoDesk Sketchbook (formally Sketchbook Pro). The video is posted below.

In the video I give an invite to look over at my new Digital Sketching channel. The link to that channel is here.

Coloring A Greyscale Image Using Overlay Blend Mode

I demonstrated how I painted the above painting in Sketchbook (formally Sketchbook Pro) in two videos posted on my YouTube channel Digital Sketching.

I first did the gray scale painting on the left then using the color editor I applied the colors in overlay and normal blend modes.

Here are my videos demonstrating the process...

Digital Sketchbook- My New YouTube Channel

I added a new YouTube channel. The Digital Sketchbook is a channel where I will share my digital sketches done in real time, unedited.

I thought that this would be a great idea because I can spend a few minutes of sketching and record what I do. I will keep it as short as possible and record the audio as I'm working so that pretty much it would be like a demo.

Below is the first video on my new channel. If you like what you see and have a YouTube account subscribe to my channel. I will posting regularly.

Painting A Pastel Self Portrait In Rebelle

This self portrait was an exercise in controlling my values. I feel that my digital paintings come out too high key. What I did in this painting was to employ a method in which I painted a grisaille under painting and applied layers of color on top of it.

I demonstrate this in the video below taken from my YouTube channel.

I think I did more than a little bit of rambling on  the audio but I believe I managed to stick to the topic.

Sketching Morning and Afternoons (Making the Most of My Time)

The pencil sketch was done on my lunch hour at work and the digital self portrait was done in the morning before leaving for work.

Feels like I have very little time to do anything more but glad I can at least manage to do something everyday till at some point I find more time.

Lunch Hour Sketches

Bunch of drawings done on my lunch hour at work. These drawings were done over a period of days. I haven't had time to do much outside of this hour at work and some illustration work over the weekends.

First Sketches Of 2018

2018 is starting off a little busy for me. I have a 3 part illustration assignment for Guide Magazine. I sent in the first illustration and am in the middle of completing the second. All that is to say that I don't have as much time for personal work apart from these sketches I do on my lunch hour.


So here's another round of afternoon sketches done on my lunch hour.

More Lunch Hour Sketches

I hesitate to post these because these are sketches made on either my lunch hour at work or at some point in the work day where there was very little activity. Most of these are done quickly, some with photo reference and others done from imagination. None of these are meant to be anything but an effort to keep my hand moving because there is very little time in my day to work for long on a finished piece.

So I guess these may not look great but they are a lot of fun to do and a way of staying creative and disciplined in my craft as well as passing the time.
