Milo likes to come out during the day and sit right here. Alright, come on, let’s go! We’re gonna go paint. Ready!? I’ll meet you inside! Hey guys, welcome to another episode of Ross Draws. And today, we’re drawing a personal painting! Since summer is around the corner I thought we could draw something fresh, vibrant to help us get into that mood! And maybe Milo could help us too! Right buddy? [Milo] I’ll think about it.
[Ross] Right. [Milo] Ross Draws! [Ross] Something summery. Since I’ve been drawing a lot of portrait style paintings on my channel. I thought we could do something like a landscape. I’m going for a summery vibe. I’ve always wanted to paint something half underwater and then half outside of water. I see bunch of photos of it and it looks so cool, but it looks really hard. But maybe Milo can do one of these thumbnails. What do you think buddy? Awesome. We’re gonna clear this and let Milo draw. All right, Milo, you know the brief? The brief is something chill, something fun and vibrant to help get us in the summer mood. Milo? What are you drawing?! [Milo] I’m drawing a big dinosaur. And there’s gonna be some buildings And hot, hot, fire! And of course, the cars are gonna explode. [Ross] Can you explain to everybody what you drew? What is this? [Milo] Well, this is a dream I had of a dinosaur destroying a city. [Ross] Okay, but where’s the fun and vibrancy?
[Milo] It’s the fire, the fire’s the vibrancy. [Ross] How is this summer?
[Milo] Here I’ll draw you a tree. [Ross] Well, uh, thank you for your contribution Milo.
[Milo] No problem. [Ross] We have this surfing girl on a surfboard, half in the water and half outside. We have this girl having a moment with the fishes. And we have Milo’s drawing. It’s like a big dinosaur with exploding cars and a palm tree. Which actually really pops out from these screens. But, I have a really cool idea in mind to do this one. So trust me. I’m gonna make it awesome. Sorry Milo And we’re just gonna try to redraw this a little more accurately. Yeah, so this is what we started with, a quick impactful thumbnail sketch that we can read from a distance. And then we started drawing and refining it. And now we have a direction of where we’re going. Hey, Milo, what do you think?
[Milo] I think it needs more dinosaurs. [Ross] Hey! And now I’m going to try to add some color. So I make a new layer and set it to multiply. This is what we had before, and this is what we have now. You can really tell that the color is really starting to take a shape. This looks really promising so far. So I’m just gonna keep working on it, and I’ll check back soon Welcome back and this is the progress. We started with this thumbnail sketch. We gave it some polish, carved out some features. Added a nice color impact. And then, this is where we are. Hey Milo, what do you think so far?
[Milo] I think it needs more dinosaurs. [Ross] I think a dinosaur might be a little too big for this. Let’s compromise and uh, how about a cat? [Milo] Ugh, fine. [Ross] You can draw it. Ok! Cat time! Wow buddy, you’re so good. [Laughter] Wow Milo, look at your cat. So I’m going to show you a design fundamental that could help you with your future painting. It’s on how to add subjects in an organic way. So we have these awesome birds here. And you want to place them in an organic matter and you don’t want it to look robotic. So you add two close together and then one far apart. Let’s add one here. One here. Then one here. Ooo that’s kinda cool. You can also do shapes too. Like this one’s a little smaller than this one. Ooh. Nice. So it looks a lot more organic. And let’s do it with the fishes here, too. She’s starting to look like a zookeeper with all these animals. [Laughter] Our summer piece is looking pretty good so far. So I’m just gonna try to wrap it up and I’ll check back soon. Yo guys! It’s color dodge time! Ooo! Milo! Look out! Let’s call them. [Dialing sound] It’s me. My shirt’s wet. Raichu, go! Snowball, go! Crank up the power. No! Hey guys, welcome back and I hope you enjoyed the video.
