After last week’s Scaredy Cats story video – The Killer Catflap – I thought I’d draw an evil cockroach this week. see the video here
It’s different to the way I drew the roaches in the book and video, mainly because I’ve been a bit more attentive to the true shape and design of a cockroach. Not too attentive though! This is really about characterisation – turning an animal or inanimate object into a humanised character
I’ve been asked many times to recommend a watercolour set for beginners. That’s difficult to do as my viewers are all over the world and the re are so many sets to choose from.
I use Winsor and Newton Artists Quality watercolours. This set is a grade below and quite a lot cheaper. It is a small set, so you can get used to the paints and the way they work and also get used to the idea of mixing.
Also, being a small set, it is great to slip into a pocket and take with you sketching.
I shall be using this set in my videos in the near future so if you want to follow along, I’m putting Amazon links below to the set and the Derwent watwer brushes too.
