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

Dragon Lady – Cartoon Sketch YouTube Video

Dragon Lady
YouTube live realtime cartoon sketching video

In this video I am doing a freehand sketch of a Lady Dragon in SketchBookPro6 software,
I am drawing on my Citiq 21 UX interactive pen display.

This was not for a project or an assignment, it was just a fun little doodling session, to loosen up and get into the drawing mood. I also felt that a new video was overdue.

I hope you enjoy this little sketch and insight as to how I work. The music is the same music I was listening to while I worked by the way.

Here is the final artwork:

The music in the background of the video is this mellow Tibetan meditation by the way:

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.

Unpredictable and Uncontrollable: Social Media – Illustration by Ian Marsden

Unpredictable and Uncontrollable: Social Media – Illustration by Ian Marsden

Social Media is striking fear and uncertainty into every marketing manager’s heart. When it goes right it’s fantastic, but at any given second it can go spiralling…
Campaigns that are launched and intended to go viral, turn into nightmares when they are twisted into memes, or hijacked for a contrary purpose of what they were intended for.

This humorous illustration was created to accompany an article in PUNKT Wirtschaftsmagazin.
Artist: Ian David Marsden
Art Director: Boris Gassmann
