“The Pianist” Freehand Sketch in Photoshop for my Facebook Page

Here is an image of the final result and also a YouTube video of the entire drawing process, uncut.

This sketch was made in under 30 Minutes but for the purpose of the video I sped the action up to around 9 Minutes.

I hope you enjoy it. Cheers!

Pirate and Parrot: Realtime Cartoon Tutorial YouTube Video

Pirate and Parrot: Realtime Cartoon Tutorial YouTube Video
Artist: Ian David Marsden

Hi,
In this brief video I am doing a rough freehand sketch of a pirate with a parrot on his shoulder. Hard to tell from the drawing which one of the two has a higher I.Q. I have to admit. Safe to assume that together they might not quite make it to 100, but that doesn’t matter. They are lovely individuals and they have hearts of gold. The parrot however is slightly distressed, because he misplaced a winning Euro Millions ticket, but that is another matter entirely.

I hope you enjoy watching the video of their creation. :)

Ian

I am working in SketchBook Pro software on a Wacom Cintiq 21UX screen.

YouTube Video: Drawing Santa Claus and Rudolph Cartoon on Wacom Cintiq Tablet

Santa Claus and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer Cartoon.
“Cheers Old Friend!”

Here is a video of me drawing a quick sketch and coloring it in Autodesk SketchBook Pro software. I am using a Wacom Cintiq 21UX digital tablet screen on this one.
A wonderful tool which I can wholeheartedly recommend to any professional illustrator, graphic designer or cartoonist.

Video:

I made occasional cuts to stay within the 10 minute length limit imposed by YouTube so the drawing jumps along miraculously a few times, but I hope the steps I took are still clear.
I hope you enjoy this little presentation.
