Drawing Some Bears

I've heard that a lot of kids I know and some I don't have been drawing flying pigs for the last little while because of a video I made. I feel that there is a limit to how much winged pork you can draw in a lifetime, and while I fortunately haven't reached that point, some of these poor kids did weeks ago. Since they don't know how to draw other stuff, they're still cranking out pigs. To keep them from burning out on drawing completely, I put this new video together. Look, kids! You can finally draw something else! I wish I had used a darker pencil… something for me to remember when everyone's sick of drawing hugging bears and I have to make a new drawing video. Hey, kids - DON'T hold your pencils like this! It works just fine, but the resulting ridicule never ends.

I'm disappointed in you. At the rate you drew that bear, you should be outputting a lot more than you do. Very interesting!

Can I get the agency where you found your hand model?

the music rocks...I can't believe no one has mentioned that yet!
my daughter draws even more than I used to as a kid and she has quite the callous on one of her little fingers- something I remember pretty clearly from being that age but I was wondering- did you ever get blisters or callouses from drawing like that?
I love the video- I'd love to see many more- except could you somehow include how you do this on the computer? I know I know- go to school- they teach ya there...but you just can't bring your kids along.

my word verification is the best one I've seen yet! they asked me to type in "OOGOY!"

Davidsonfieldville said...

oops, I missed Laura William's comment...she's with me on the music.
and this time I get to type "gwuga!"

Tim Bye said...

Stunning work Shane! Nice synchronization with the music too! Look forward to more vids like this! - You could make your own how to draw dvd and become mega rich?!

Art Sir said...

hey man can you do a video on your coloring i think thats the most interesting part.....

Fric Fagan said...

It's almost like you're a professional at this or something!

Fantastic video, Shane! I love videos like these, everything's all roughed out.

I love it when people watch me & others draw & they think "What the heck is he drawing?", & as time goes on they realize what it is & their struck by it completely offguard.

The coloring part, short as it was, was absolutely amazing. I can't color anything, because I'm too impatient & I'm partially colorblind. But from pencil sketch to finished product, with all the highlights, shading, shadows & such, it's an absolute thrill!

Music was great, too!

This is Doug, I don't believe in remaining anonymous. That is also how I hold my pencil. And I typed this message using only four fingers, which is how I type everything.

Heather D. White said...

For some reason, listening to that music made me giggle. LOL! And I love how the music TOTALLY went along with the very end of the clip....awesome finale! The drawing is killer as always. Love watching the process. Heck...you could post these every day and I would sit and watch them. It's so cool to see the master at work! Love it!

Tobias Schwarz said...

Nice

MrSuspenders said...

Wow, You draw really fast, and color even faster.

I wish the coloring part went a little slower because that looked interesting.

Ghassan Lafi said...

Nice talent, I can learn from your lines how to be a stenographer artist with meaningful apt for the purpose lines. I really enjoyed watching the vid!
I wish you more artistic perception!

Goldenrod Fox said...

This is so freaking adorable!

Erin Middendorf said...

Ahh, fun video! And don't worry - I hold my pencil like that too! :)
