Pro Artist Sketch Challenge
All right, so I’m filming a video
where I’m coming up to artists
and asking them to draw art related superheroes.
You just come up with any art term
then paint them
Like”Core Shadow”,”Darth Shader”,”The Smudge”,”Sir Realism”,”Free Lancer”.
“The Smudge”,”Sir Realism”,”Free Lancer”.
“污迹” “现实主义爵士” “自由职业者”
“Vin Easel”, that’s a good one.
Yeah, I like”Vin Easel”.
We’re getting crazy here.
My favorite is”The CriTiki”, it’s not even like a person, like a totem
我最喜欢的是“批评基” 听起来不像个人 更像一个图腾
Like something really funny and stupid.
“Foreshadow” would be hilarious.
He’s always got four shadows.
That’s the best one I’ve heard so far.
Just a quick sketch, like 10 minutes or whatever.
What does that even mean for art?
Photoshop burn… Oh, Photoshop.
Oh yeah, you’re a digital artist.
You’ve got to do a digital word.
No,you gotta do”Color Dodge”.
You have to do”Color Dodge”. Exactly. Yeah,
– 你得画“颜色减淡侠” – 是的 没错
and I’m gonna do the “Color Dodge Man”.
Or a woman.
“Color Dodge” could be a woman.
Yes, it could indeed be a woman.
Of course they’ll be a woman.
It is. Because you have a daughter. What?
– 是啊 因为你有个女儿 – 什么？
Because you have a daughter, so you have to be biased.
I have a son. Oh, you have a son?
– 是儿子 – 哦 是儿子？
I’m like… so many babies these days!
It’s Color Dodge time!
So yeah, you can scroll through if you want… “Pigment Pig”, what is that?
– 你可以滑动屏幕 下面还有 – “小猪颜料人” 那是个啥？
Let me do “Pigment Pig”. OK, Pigment Pig.
– 我来画“小猪颜料人” 吧 – 好的 就他了
Um, how do I draw a pig?
Let me think for a second. Okay,
I think got it.
Feel free to work the way you would work though.
So if you need to think for a little, don’t worry about it.
He’s kind of a villain, I guess.
Is that a paintball gun?
Kind of, but maybe a little more menacing.
So like, yeah, he’d probably actually kill you with it.
It’s looking really cool.
His issue is there’s always, leaves a, you know,
a trail of paint, so he’s pretty easy to find.
He’s always dripping.
Or he’s just, he’s a sloppy pig, like all pigs. True!
– 或许他只是头又肥又丑的猪 – 大实话
Yeah, if he was clean,
that would just be out of character.
I thought you would have picked “The Smudge”,
because you use the blender tool.
But it’s like,
I don’t know what to do with “Smudge”.
I don’t know how you are,
but sometimes I have to kind of almost have a snapshot in
my head to go super quick.
Otherwise I have to really take my time and research and plan it.
And this one, when you said “Pigment Pig”,
like literally this was like”doop”.
And it was like, “okay, I can do that pretty quickly.”
Nice. Oh, that’s his logo.
He even has a logo.
Great, thank you so much.
That was awesome.
“Crosshatch” kind of sounds interesting.
So at the very top.
When you said that one, that instantly popped into my head. -Awesome, “Crosshatch”.
– 在你说的时候 我脑海里就有了画面 – 真棒 “交叉排线侠”
Awesome, thank you.
So that’s why I’m trying to think of something good
– “Killer Crayon”, no? -No, that’s not.
– “蜡笔杀手“ 怎么样？ – 不行 要美术术语
“The Form Phantom”.
“The Form Phantom”?
“The Form Phantom”. I don’t know what I was gonna add. Okay,”Form Phantom”. That’s pretty cool.
– “维度幽灵” 我都不知道是是啥 – 可以啊 “维度幽灵” 很酷的样子
I like that better than the crayon.
When we were throwing out ideas at the office,
we started with some really lame ones.
I want to do a villain. That’s why.
I want to do an epic villain,
ala”The Phantom”, the old 1950s comic phantom.
I think it was 50s, yeah, 60s, 50s.
“Form Phantom”. Yeah.
– “维度幽灵” – 没错
Does he transform into stuff? Or?
Because it’s his form.
Yeah, he…his power is form.
His power is form.
So he can go flat or he could be volumetric and coming at you.
It’s all within his power. There you go.
– 这是他超能力的一部分 – 不错不错
Coming up with this on the fly but it’s fun. -But of course. -Yeah.
– 画的有点匆忙但挺有趣的 – 当然啦
Hi, I’m Modern Day James! I’m… -I’m not recording. -What?
– 大家好 我是…… – 我还没开始录像
I love doing that to people
But I’m actually, you don’t have to talk.
Oh, okay, good, good, good.
I’m pretty camera shy to be honest.
Is this the, the cross arm technique?
Yeah, this is the cross arm technique
for when you decide you need to be ambidextrous.
So what kind of power does Atelier have?
He has the power to smash the artistic ability out of young artists.
Oh, so is he gonna be smashing a little kid?
-Yeah, he’s a villain. -He’s not…
没错 他是个反派 不是……
He’s a superhero.
So he could be carrying all the supplies.
That’s a very good point.
He teaches every class.
So this is a giant paintbrush.
Yes, so this is a giant paintbrush.
It’s not a broom, it’s a paintbrush.
注意 不是扫把 是一根笔刷
It should say paintbrush, not broom.
Yeah, you have to label it.
So if there was ever a movie with”Atelier the Hun”,
this would always be floating with the brush, right?
Can he fly with the paintbrush?
Yeah, he’ll do it like a witch, though, like Harry Potter.
Well, so he sits on it. He doesn’t like point it? No,
不 不 不是这样的
That’d be cool if he was like “Thor”, like where he like…
See, my problem is I actually don’t want him to be cool.
I want him to be kind of like…
Kind of lame?
Yeah, like, he’s a very lame villain.
-Is he a good artist? -No.
That’s why he wants to destroy other people’s talents.
Oh, so he goes around and
like messes up people’s paintings with a giant paintbrush?
I’m sweating now!
You sketch in pencil?
Like a colored pencil?
– 用的 – 彩铅吗？
Yeah, blue Col-Erase and then move into like…
没错 先用蓝色的Col-Erase 然后……
then I’d kind of just do like em, then I just go straight to ink after that.
Let me find some paper.
I do have a sketchbook.
Oh, do you mind… can I borrow it then?
You can keep it, you can keep the drawing afterwards.
I have a sketchbook. Okay, thanks.
– 我已经有速写本了 – 好吧
So is this a villain?
Yeah, so I did my hero as a villain.
Oh, you wanted me to create my own?
Yeah, well, who’s this one? This is”The Joker”.
– 嗯 他叫啥？ – “小丑侠”
-Oh, that’s”The Joker”? -Yeah.
And then I use like a brush pen too.
So I don’t really use like Microns or any kind of like what you call it, you know? So…
Did you study a lot of artists?
A lot of like animators.
And it’s like that’s kind of like where I kind of… well, the thing is I was just really
into animation versus comic book art.
So I liked them a lot.
I thought the expressions, the bendiness,
everything else is so much more expressive and more fun than like the normal,
like muscle of the comic book stuff.
It seemed so stiff to me,
so when I started trying to break that habit, I kind of had
to look at a lot of different animators.
But I kind of naturally gravitated to that.
Like people like Milt Kahl who did like” Sword In The Stone” and then, you know, and then
就像有人喜欢Milt Kahl 有人喜欢“石中剑”
a lot of old school “Looney Tunes” cartoons and stuff like that.
-Yeah, very dynamic. -Right, right. Because those are… and they’re very expressive in like hands and everything else in that kind of nature. You know?
– 是很动态的 – 没错 特别是“手”这类的就很有表现力
And then like, so what I would do here is like, so you leave that back
one done and I will kind of move that one to like a lighter, lighter things.
Which would give me the more, like you can add in the rest of the thing of like.
So then you then you can start toning it inwards and never kind like line it out.
You kind of just like, you kind of get the idea of how the hands will move, like how
they would look
And technically, you don’t really have to do much else but like fill it in and then
start adding tone to it and stuff like that.
It gives that illusion of it in the background kind of thing. So like, you know,
like even like I started working like really rough because, you know,
based on the anime you watch, anime,
there’s… everything is very kind of rough.
And then you fill it in and you make corrections later.
Yeah, we can get that out of your way.
That is great.
Oh good, was it?
Yeah, it was great. Oh,
that’s cool, man. Thanks, man.
That’s some skill right there. I would have colored it in and stuff like that.
– 这里有些技巧 – 我最后会给它上色
Nah, that’s great.
There you go, man.
Cool, thank you so much.
