New Video: Nicki Minaj Portrait Drawing!
Hey every one! I just uploaded a new video... me drawing Nicki Minaj with her fabulous rainbow wig! =) I'm not gonna lie, this drawing was really difficult for me. I was getting frustrated with the texture the colored pencils were giving me. Any artists out there know of good colored pencils that will blend & erase? I need some! I want to try doing some painting videos. Perhaps with goache. I'm not sure yet. Not with oil, that would be a 129846 part video. Oil takes WAY too long to dry. But anyways, hope you all enjoy my video. More drawings coming!! OH and a giveaway, very very soon. I just need to buy the prizes.
