VIDEO: A Watch me Sketch Two Faces Video and How I Made It

Friday, July 8, 2016

Hello everyone,

I have been teaching lots, and when on my own playing around with videotaping myself sketching. Oh yeah, I used the 4k video option on my LG G4 smartphone. It takes gorgeous photos, too. I'm still working on the video part!

Here's my set up:

Here's the product I found on Amazon for a whopping $14.95. So far so good.

I have posted a couple of videos on my Instagram so far, but they have to be really short (under 1 min) and that means speeded up 8x. Which is fast!

But I thought you might like to see the complete videos, and a bit slower (2x) rather than 8x. The entire sketching time was 6.5 minutes, so the vid below is 3 of so.

So here you go: (Btw - I didn't add music as I generally find it a bit annoying, or can't find just the right tune, so listen to your own!)

PS Oh i did end up adding music from youtube archives after all. Just turn your volume down to enjoy the silence. There is no talking on this vid so you won't miss a thing!

FiFiona begging me to come and make more art on my sketching desk. I have a separate painting area as it helps me to designate my "craft and sketching" desk separate from where my canvases and paint live. Believe me, they both get chaotic!
