Show and Schedule
I have now established a schedule of broadcasting EVERY WEEKDAY MORNING AT 10 AM EST. Each show lasts about an hour. Come, watch, hang out, and chat. http://www.ustream.tv/channel/dani-draws
The show includes a mix of both digital techniques in Photoshop and Illustrator, and traditional painting. These traditional sketches are a part of my Daily Doodle goal that I have mentioned previously. They are mostly pencil sketches and watercolor stuff.
I have two major announcements concerning this traditional work:
Free Doodle Giveaways
Once a week, I am going to give away one sketch that I produce on the show. All you have to do is show up and watch.
Rules and Guidelines
- One sketch will be given away EVERY FRIDAY.
- You need to be in the chat room to participate. This means you must be watching via the Ustream channel page, not on DaniDraws.com or other website where the feed is embedded. You will not need to register with Ustream.
- At the end of the show, one user from the chat room will be randomly picked to receive a free sketch. User must be present to win, otherwise another name will be drawn.
- Winners will be required to provide a real name, email address, and mailing address via private message at the end of the show. This info will not be used for anything other than the purpose of the contest.
Hope to see you there, and good luck!
These are some watercolor sketches I made this morning on my Ustream channel. Here’s the video:
Have a great weekend, everyone!
This is the second part in a series of tutorials. You can read part one here.
When creating a spot illustration, I often create the overall vignette shape first, before I add any other colors or details. To do this, I make a clipping mask layer.
Also check out one of my older posts, Using Masks to Create a Spot Illustration, which reviews some similar methods and ideas I will use here.
A few of these were drawn live via my Ustream channel. Drop by if you would like to chat and ask questions as I draw and paint in real time. I broadcast every morning at 10 AM EST. You can also find archived videos of past shows on my Ustream profile.
