Today I’m posting a video for the first time on my blog, and therefore I created a Youtube Channel!
So, what’s the video about? I did the ‘3 marker’ challenge, a drawing/colouring challenge that I discovered through youtubers Baylee Jae and Doodle Date, check their videos!
The rules are really simple:
- Pick 3 colours randomly
- Colour your drawing with thos colours ONLY
I know there is a lot of people that don’t start this challenge with a lineart ready, however, I was not confident enough in my drawing skills to do the same. Besides, I didn’t want the colours to influence what I was drawing.
Anyway, here’s the lineart that I did specifically for this challenge, before picking the colours.
The drawing is very far from prefect I know, I still need a lot more practice, but this was fun to do!
And whithout further ado, here’s the video:
So, what do you think? Did you like it?
At first, I was pretty disappointed with the colours, but then I realised that I got really lucky! In the end, it wasn’t so much of a challenge, trying to decide what to do with the colours, because they worked really well together on their own. Still, I do think it was a really good exercice to limit your palette to a few colours and I highly recommend you try it yourself!
I know I ‘cheated’ a bit by adding some highlights with my Posca pen… but nevermind 😉
Before I end this article, here’s the list of materials that I used, if you’re interested:
- Paper: Bleedproof layout paper by Canson, 70g
