Drawing Elsa and Anna Winter Holiday from FROZEN

It’s Friday art video time! You guys voted for what you wanted me to draw for Christmas and you voted for a reindeer: http://youtu.be/_GhOFT_I6Ro and Disney Christmas, which for that theme I decided to draw something FROZEN related! I started this drawing while having coffee and I really liked it, so I decided to film myself finishing the piece.

Don’t forget to like the video and while you’re at it, subscribe, so we can keep drawing and making art together.

Let me know what you want to see next week!

Happy Holidays,
~Pamela

How to Draw a Christmas Reindeer Cute Rudolph

reindeer

Happy Art Video Friday! Today I’m drawing a Christmas Reindeer or, if you prefer, you can call him cute baby Rudolph. I did give him a cute red nose afterall. Reindeer was the top voted Christmas “thing” to draw this week, so here it is to those of you who voted for what you wanted me to draw this week. After you give this video a thumbs up, make sure to head to my site, http://www.artistrage.com and vote for what Christmas thing you want me to draw next week. You can also leave it in the comments here too!

While my Rudolph Christmas Reindeer may look a little difficult to draw, I assure you, he’s very simple if you break him down into simple little shapes and steps. Read the helpful tips in the video to complete your drawing before Christmas! Share your Christmas drawings at @artistrage with #artistragechristmas I can’t wait to see what you draw!

Grab a piece of paper, a pencil, an eraser, something to color with…and lets create something!

See you next Friday with another art video,

Art Buddy Charcoal Drawings: Simple Shapes and Fruit Study

WP_20141203_13_46_26_Pro

A few months ago I finally started to dive into the crazy, and sometimes confusing, world of Reddit. If you’re not familiar with reddit, just know it can be a great place to talk to people who have similar interests as you, and it can also be a great place to get into trouble. Haha, I’ll just leave it at that.

Moving forward a bit, SO.. I found this subreddit called Art Buddy. Art Buddy is about finding someone who wants to work on similar artwork as you. Once you find someone, you can arrange the subject or medium and how long the two of you want to work together. Brilliant! This is PERFECT motivation for anyone having trouble producing work. As of late, I’ve been lucky I’ve even managed to make my weekly art videos. I haven’t been making much for myself. I have ideas, I CAN make the things, I just…get caught up in other daily ticket items. *cough, not lazy, cough*

Back to the story…ahh, yes, so I found someone looking for a charcoal artist. I immediately responded. I LOVE charcoal and haven’t done anything with charcoal in over a year. She messaged me, we picked a due date, and decided we’ll do 1 a week for the month of December (4 total drawings). I chose the first theme, which was a Simple Shapes and Fruit Study. While not interesting, I thought it was a simple warm up for charcoal drawing again. It’s been too long.

Here’s what I did in progression:

WP_20141203_14_29_23_Pro

WP_20141203_15_22_07_Pro

WP_20141203_15_42_47_Pro

I didn’t finish the background before our due date. It was a good start though!

 

And here is what my Art Buddy sent to me for the same project!

Here’s what she said about her work:

“So, I underprepared and realized that I only had two pears in my house, haha. I decided to do a basic value drawing, but I think it turned out blah because of the lack of true composition. I started with laying down basic values with a paintbrush and powdered charcoal, then built layer by layer. I need to work on detail though… Haha.”

I think we both did great for our first charcoal. My Art Buddy did a fantastic value study! I’m looking forward to next week’s charcoal, which my Art Buddy has chosen Fur and Feathers as our theme. Oooo tough! I like it. Challenge accepted!!
