This video was requested by YouTuber, portal2canttouchtis, who asked me to show how to draw a crow. I thought I would do better than that, I’d show you how to paint one too! It took much longer than I thought it would, so I split the video into two parts. Part one shows how to draw the crow and part two shows how I painted it with a running commentary on my thought process, choosing colours and styles of applying paint.
I hope you like this. If you do, let me know and also let me know if you would like me to do something on my monday videos on the ShooRayner channel on YouTube.
This tutorial shows you how to draw a Whale and colour it in using watercolours and and Pentel Aquash pait brushes, which I have just discovered. you can see my review of them here.
If you are thinking of trying them out, please use the US or UK Amazon links below and help support my videos, thanks! You might also like to try Derwent Aquatone crayons that you can draw with or use as watercolours, washing in the colour once it is on the paper. I used tehse a lot at the pencil museum.
Twitter friend, americo neves, asked me if I ever used portable brushes, well I happened to have a set of Pentel Aquash Brushes and so I thought I would give them a go and show you how I got along with them. I happened to be drawing at the Keswisk Pencil Museum the week after and used them solidly for three days with Aquatone colour crayons and I had a lot of fun with them
I have to admit that when I first looked at them I thought they looked a bit cheap and plastic, but now I’ve used them I think they are great and will always have them in my bag for quick sketching. They are quick and fun and a lot easier to use than carrying around pots of water for your water colours. Good fun.

Designing characters for picture books or animation is one thing, but being able to draw them again and again from different angles too is something quite different. It takes a lot of drawing and trial and error until the character on the page in front of you resembles the idea that you had in your head.
It takes a lot of drawing and practice to get to the point where I’m happy to proceed with a book. I will sometimes have been thinking about the book for years. I’ve been thinking and planning this ebook I’m working on, for about 8 years now, so I have a fairly good idea of what it is I’m after.
Keep following as I build this ebook for iPad.
This eBook is going to be linked to my Sweetlittlebabyboo! iPone app. Get it here. Grown up’s love it as much as babies do!
Follow me as I make an iPad iBook over the next few weeks on my YouTube channel. I’m going to document all the various stages involved including research, reference, sketching, planning, illustrating, design on iBooks Author and integral video production.
Learn a bit more about motivation for artists and how the colour wheel works and how to mix almost any colour from three colours.
want to get started with watercolour but are too afraid? watch this and have a go.
I’m doing this drawing for an organisation in Chepstow, Wales, That helps young people get back off the rails. I’m going to post it on eBay tomorrow, so you can bid for it.
This is the follow up video to the how to draw a Bugatti Veyron. I use watercolour for this picture.
