Making Art with COLOR CHANGING PENS?! | Mystery Art Box | Scrawrlbox Unboxing | Rainbow Renaissance


Today we’re going to be making some art with the.. August Scrawlrbox. we’re gonna need to find out what’s inside. ♪ We have a Mars Lumagraph 4H pencil. [Smack] A Pilot drawing pen, it looks like it might be 0.5. [Smack] A candy! Looks like a lemon Fruit-tella. [Smack] aaaaand… Oh, what are these? I’ve heard of chameleon, like, markers. This say’s it’s a chameleon pen. I don’t know, I’m curious. Fine-liners that come with instructions. (My favorite) so many ways to use! Well, it looks like there are three ways to use them. If there’s a way to do this wrong, I’m sure I’ll figure that one out. So they are color changing fine-liners. so this one looks like it’s the color cool gray 8. YL2, BG3, BV4, PK5, and RD3. [Smack] We have a menu listing all the supplies in the August Scrawlrbox, as well as a prompt word, which is ‘rainbow renaissance.’ Basically, we’re going to draw something and hopefully this prompt word will inspire us. I don’t know. This month’s
Scrawlrbox sticker is this fun scribbly rainbow. Needs more pink. [Laughs] [Smack] That’s everything in the tissue paper. There’s also a little sketchbook, The crok book, got a cool raised embellishment. A pretty thick paper. Only one way to find out. [Paper wobbling] Sounds good. 24 sheets of 160 gram blank paper! Thank goodness there’s a leaf there. This is actually really kind of cool. He’s not even looking at the bird. David, look at the bird! Look at the bird. Look at him! I really like how the hue just shifts but it seems natural. This illustration is by the artist Jonathan Knight and you can find his social media right there! Now this illustration actually kind of makes me realize what I think this prompt word was trying to say. Which is “Rainbow Renaissance’ kind of like a… recreation of an old art museum quality piece. But obviously Jonathan made it and brought some like new life to it in a way. Definitely
inspires me and that, in hand with the prompt word, Makes a lot more sense to me about maybe where we can take that prompt word. Look at the bird. What I definitely want to do first. I’m gonna go to the back of the book, and I’m just gonna swatch out the art supplies and
kind of play around with this color-changing fine-liner. Whoa, okay, that cap is massive. [Laughs] The cap’s almost the same size as the marker. If
we do that and then then I don’t know, mix it with a color so I can take a cap, (Am I doing this right?) [Mouth kissing] Do you have to like shake it? [Tap, tap, tap, tap] I don’t understand! It says after one second there should be a change… [hums a lord of the rings theme knockoff.] [Crash, smack] That’s not gonna do me any good, so I’m gonna take this blue pen, stick it in this pink cap, Do you hold it like this? Okay, we’ll see . Come on. Come on! Hey it worked this time! Oh, maybe I overdid it. Still pink. Uh oh, uh oh, uh oh, uh oh. I mean that wasn’t even close to 30 seconds. Yeah, it’s still pink. Looks like the key is to hold it up right like this. Still not seeing that like gradient. So, let’s do it for what, one second? One. [Marker cap clicks] Hey! There we go. [Laughs] That’s really pretty. I’m trying to figure out the practicality of these. They definitely hold on to color a lot longer than this little diagram suggests. A little trial and error. One, two, three. So it starts pink and it slowly becomes a gray and now it’s green! Hey, I did it! These are kind of fun. I’m a little overwhelmed by how I’m going to use them in like, creating an art piece though. Good old pencil. This just needs to be disrupted it’s too… interesting. [Giggles] ♪ Now what if I use pencil to add a little shading around it. ♪ I think that’s all the art supplies they included. So we have a fine-liner, a pencil and then these like magic color-changing fine-liners. So I guess you could try and like [Fingers tapping] make something in like this sorta style. The question is… Does this erase well enough, to be able to use like the fine-liners on top of it? ♪ So if we like, I take my kneaded eraser… and erase this. Does it interfere with the way the fine-liners work? Here you can kind of see the pencil underneath of it still. Mix it with a little blue. ♪ One and two and three. Don’t want to go overboard again. ♪ Now it says you can leave the caps off for two days, so I think I’m gonna go ahead and uncapped all of them. Keep the caps maybe over here. Bodies over here. [Crash, smack] And then I can just mix them as I need and I don’t
have to worry about putting the caps on the wrong one because I’m not putting the caps on any of them. Trying to figure out how I want to use these colors like. Johnathan’s, they just kind of like switch hues willy-nilly I don’t know if there’s like a rhyme or a reason to it. Definitely,
there’s some colors layered for the darker shadows, but the color choices don’t seem to be that purposeful. I mean, maybe they aren’t I’m just not getting it. Little grumpy girl here. The yellow is nice and bright, so you can’t really see the strokes as well. So it works nice for like filling in areas. Could almost do the sketching in the yellow and then layer the other pens on top. Then darken up the colors as we go. I’m gonna try and imitate this drawing. If I can figure out what I like about it, it looks like it’s purple at the top. So that means I need to mix pink with the blue. [Tap, tap, tap, tap, tap.] That’s kind of interesting. It’s more blue up at the top as the color was running out. So if I want to go back up at the top you should add a little bit more blue! I’m trying
to decide what the benefit is mixing directly with the cap versus mixing just directly on the paper and seems more familiar to me. [Tap, tap, tap, tap] Well, it does – It definitely helps if you want to get one color for a longer amount of time. You can’t mix the colors to directly get that purple color. ♪ Good luck getting that purple color by mixing them directly on there, you know. Then you gotta be careful when it starts turning into blue. I don’t quite have the grasp of tones, quite like this illustration, but getting closer, maybe. I feel like I want to draw a little bit bigger, than the limitations of this sketchbook. Just gonna grab a piece of paper, so that maybe I can take advantage of like, the shapes of the actual pen. I’m gonna try and be very, very light with this pencil. I don’t think
I’ll try and copy any specific old Renaissance artwork, but I’m just gonna try and capture like, sort of the outfits and like the… I don’t know, the style of them. So they had very realistic proportions. So maybe I should try to draw that way too. We’ll see how this goes. So like, you know an actual neck. instead of a [Laughs] finger for a neck like I usually draw. Much less stylized. Not trying to be too detailed at the beginning here. I’m going to definitely get bogged down. I’m okay with taking a few liberties. I’m gonna like, kind of make a classic old portrait sort of look. They always had really long noses. I don’t know if maybe an art historian could explain, Renaissance portraits don’t cater to like, a modern appeal of what’s attractive and I don’t know if that’s because they were kind of stylizing them in a way that they found attractive or if they were just trying to be as accurate to what they saw as they could. That be something I’d find interesting to know. Hey, hey! [Chuckles] Drew it too small though. I have this huge piece of paper [Laughs] and I ended up drawing in a size That could have fit on here. Well. Nice puff sleeves. Center part there. Gorgeous! Think I’m stylizing the face too much still. Let’s keep it nice and un-contoured. ♪ Little braid in the hair back there. Yeah, we got a pretty Renaissance lady. I wonder if I should give her some kind of massive crown just to fill the space. Could give her one of those collars. Or we could just put a rainbow behind her. Maybe we’ll see what I do with that, when we get there. Kind of just want to try start using these pens. By being a little dark with it. Maybe the eye line. Use that blue. ♪ And then have that transition into something maybe red, so that’s purple. [Tap] [Pen lid clicks off] [Smack] ♪ Just so it’s lighter. [Laughs] I think I’ll probably color in the eyes with this too. I want something significantly lighter, maybe yellow mixed with, I guess pink. Ever so slightly. [Tap, tap] you can add in… These lines we don’t want to be quite as harsh. Like wrinkles and such. Yeah, I think I’m gonna go ahead and use yellow to… Just shade some things, That don’t need to be too dark or I want to be a little bit more on the subtle side. My light source is up here, so. It’ll be a little darker to the right and I can mix in a little red anytime. [Tap, tap] To get darker. I just like to give it a little tap. Makes me feel like I’m doing something. [Laughs] Now this paper does seem to bleed with these pens. But so did this sketchbook. Although maybe it wasn’t quite as much. Oh, this paper wasn’t the best idea. But I’m committed now, [Laughs] I’m gonna grab that – Where is it? Oh this. The drawing pen and darken up the eyes a little. I’m not sure what else I’ll use this for if I don’t start using it now. Probably mix this pink with blue. [Tap, tap, tap] To darken up the edge, [More tapping] Draw those completely flat eyebrows. [Laughs] Wonder if they shaved them to look that way or if that’s just how they grew back then. You know how when you get a bad photo, See a picture like on Facebook later on and you’re like, Ooo-oo. That’s what I look like? Like, Ew. Imagine you paid someone for your portrait way back in the day and you finally get it back. Like, ew, Is that really what I look like? [Laughs] Like you can’t whip out your phone and take a flattering selfie to make yourself feel better. You’re stuck with it. Should I try to make this like really ornate? Or keep it simple? [Mouth kissing] Good question! I found this reference with this really cool outfit. It kinda reminds me of this drawing. So I’m trying to replicate it. At least I have been for that little bit. I’m gonna add these – It’s not a drawing, it’s obviously a painting. [Deep inhale] We have like a nice base. I need to start adding in those pearls. ♪ Hey! I’m really glad I decided to do this. It’s really adding something, something. I’m gonna mix this with some blue. [More tapping!] Darken up a few sections and have it like slowly blend out! Perfect. Gonna mix this with green to lighten it up a bit. [Even more tapping] That’s the blue with the green. [Smack] ♪ Hey! Well that’s one side done. [Laughs] ♪ Add these poufy sleeves in. I just want to add these little like, um… curly things everywhere. So why not? [Yet more tapping] ♪ Get that yellow back. –Oh actually pink isn’t it? So we should probably use a little pink back here. Mix it with the yellow maybe to lighten it up. [More tapping!] Oooh, perfect orange. Oh that worked – Look at that gradient! Yes! Oh, shoot I left the cap on. Well, it was sideways. That’s probably fine. I haven’t been able to get colors to mix when they’re sideways. So I’m not that concerned. [Excessive tapping…] I seem to have to hold them completely upright. ♪ A little more dimension. ♪ See it’s already fading, gotta be careful. [Tap, tap] A little blush just for my own personal taste. [Laughs] Maybe I’d be better off mixing pink with yellow instead of Yellow with pink that way it’ll fade into a lighter color as the mix fades in. ♪ Maybe gotta hold it a little longer, there we go. ♪ There’s the orange I’m looking for! [Will the tapping ever stop?] There we go. Making some difference. It’s definitely out of my art style comfort zone. I’m still trying to get to grasp… How long to hold the markers. Some of them seem to last – Like the pink cap – I don’t know if it’s a little dried out in there or something but it takes longer to mix the color onto another, even though I’m using yellow, which I feel
like should pick up other colors really, really easily. Just a thought. ♪ Gonna just add a bunch of random designs here. Squiggles. I have fine-liners so might as well try and take advantage of the detailed aspect. I kinda wanna mix this with other colors. So it’s like, hue shifting! Yeah, pretty, pretty, pretty. [More obnoxious tapping] ♪ Just add some more designs, keep the sleeves a little more interesting. I mean not that they don’t have a lot going on already. [Chuckles] I wish there was like a colorless blender one so I could like have it fade into nothing That would be really, really…[cool] I’m trying to add some design and texture to the fabric. I don’t have anything in mind. I’m just being really subtle with it. Can you tell the pink pen is my favorite so far? [Pfff] Still think it just needs something. So what I’m gonna do, is just gonna go a little extra. Add some fun, crazy… I don’t know. Not so much a pattern, kind of supposed to be part of the outfit. But I’m just going to find a center point and draw straight lines coming off of it. ♪ And maybe it’s part of the dress, I don’t know how to make it part of the dress. It would have to start curling down. It’s kinda like a spider-web. Alright, I think… My ability to improve upon this is reaching an end. I can try using some yellow just as light shading. Maybe variation. Other than that, I don’t really know what else I could do to this, except start over again. [Laughs] It kind of sense when your journey with a piece of art is coming to an end. ♪ Simplest puzzle ever. ♪ Part of me wants to like, cut this. Yeah, just picture it like this. [Laughs] My personal art style, I like to like, mix flat colors. So using only fine-liners was definitely a challenge. That challenged
me in a way that flat colors definitely don’t. [Laughs] and then also the fact that they were all rainbow colors, was really really interesting and outside of my comfort zone as well. Oh and then on top of that, trying to draw in a bit of a more “Renaissance art style”. Obviously, there’s still influences of my own art style, I try. [Laughs] Thank you guys for watching. Let me know what you drew if you are drawing along. As always thank you guys for watching, if you’d like to find out more information about Scrawlrbox, I will have a link in the description. I wanna send a big thank you to Scrawlrbox for sending me this box to just try out and share with you guys. Anyway, I’ll see you guys all next week. I hope you have a delicious evening full of waffles. Bye! Look at the bird! ♪

  1. I'm no historian, but copious amounts of discovery channel have taught me that the renaissance was kinda a mix of both. Their standard of beauty was vastly different from ours, hence why they favored models of specific proportions and such. Realism was considered a show of a skill, so the more realistic and accurate a piece, the more kudos to the author. Finally, a lot of existing pieces were commissioned by nobility of subjects they preferred of simply based on themselves, and considering the power of nobility (wherein wealth set the beauty standard so if you were wealthy it was very easy to push your features as attractive) many artists simply tried to capture what was put in front of them.

  2. My math teacher gave me anxiety after a very overly alarming/overbearing email response to a basic ass question I asked, this video is REALLY helping ease that anxiety. Thankyou waffles.😩😄🙏❤️

  3. Me: sees start of blubfish It's a blub fish!!
    Issa blubfishhh
    isablubisssshhh
    excited gibberish
    Cat: meows concernedly in background

    I just really like blubfish.

  4. I’ve taken a few humanities classes and the point of renaissance paintings was to create paintings in that the person would be recognizable. Those of a higher class were really the only ones that got portraits done. Of course they did some tweaking here and there to make themselves look better, but they tried to make it as accurate to the model as possible, that way they could be recognized through history. They also had different standards or beauty, which is why you’ll see women with no eyebrows, men with longer hair, different body shape, etc. hopefully those classes paid off and I’m not telling incorrect information. Lol😊😊

  5. The prompt just makes me want to draw a rainbow Bob Ross. The man brought back an old wet on wet oil painting method and started a renaissance with it.

  6. Well there were multiple stages of Greek art. At first it was mostly them making every person look perfect, but later they also started making people just the way you saw them with all their imperfections. This statue that this Jonathan Knight drew was one of those "perfect" men though, so I guess that was indeed what they liked

  7. Wouldn't it be cool if you tried to draw the stained windows from Gothic architectures? Those buildings came from the Renaissance and with those pens, it'd look super pretty!

  8. Rin: Woah Woah Woah
    YouTube: Holding the ban hammer
    Rin: Oh theirs a leaf there..
    YouTube: Well, be back…Eventually….

  9. Artists didn’t actually always “choose” what they painted. Whatever the commissioner told them to do is what they just had to do! But for the most part, Renaissance artists tried to be as close to humans as possible because they romanticized the natural human face and body!

  10. Have you reviewed chameleon markers? If you haven't can you? Please. Every time I go to Michael's I see them and want to try them but idk

  11. This is poached the egg, 🍳 he is about to be eaten! One like to persuade Bob 🕺🏻 not to eat poached. 👍🏼
    No h8 please guys ❤️

  12. Renaissance art was honestly pretty stylized. Many portraits and statues, especially those of Gods or heros, we’re drawn with the eight head proportion and beautifully sculpted muscles. Also many didn’t really know how to draw women naked so the just kinda drew soft men with boobs, and babies were just small buff men lol

  13. Rin, are you going to do a face reval?❤️💘If you’re not, it’s ok, Im just wondering❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️You are the best💘❤️

    This took an hour 😂

  15. The drawing looks amazing also those lines in the background (no idea what they are sorry) could have been an umbrella maybe? That would have worked as well. Or you could have drawn like flowers or a city. All in all the drawing turned out great as always

  16. On what you said about the proportions and how the faces looked, they basically had a “golden ratio” and they used it to basically construct the whole face and body so everyone had the “perfect” proportions, thats why every statue looks alike, its because they all have the same proportions!

  17. I'm no art historian, but I have been studying medieval history the last couple of years, and we found that many people would ask to be painted in the likeness of their monarch at the time, especially if they were part of the royal court – that's why for example, in Elizabethan times, there were loads of people in paintings with red hair etc. Lots of medieval paintings of non-descript nobles have been misidentified as being of a king or Queen from the same period, so maybe that's why renaissance sculpture tends to stick to very specific tendencies and features like the nose you mentioned? Plus, quite a lot of the upper class would have some very distinctive features
    whispers probably cos of all the inbreeding

  18. Renaissance art was idealized, so artists enhanced features seen as beautiful and omitted things like acne (like face tune). The goal was to grieve their patrons the best representation of themselves while still being them. Beauty ideals have shifted a lot through the centuries, also Southern Europeans tended to have a longer nose.

  19. Hey rin, could you please do a face reveal when you reach a milestone?

    I love your videos and I've subscribed for 2 years.

  20. I just finished watching Kasey Golden’s latest video, and then I clicked on this one and it was the same music and I got confused and had to stare at the wall for five minutes cause my brain is small🤠

  21. How do you draw your mouths ,eyes, hair and head shapes on and clothes. Like those are the things I have trouble on. Love your art😁😁😁

  22. so i commented yesterday one minute after the video was posted. it said there were only 14 comments. i've been scrolling through the comments looking for it. i couldn't find it lol. definitely was the 14th.

  23. Chameleon markers and pens both seem like an unnecessarily complicated and tedious way to get a hardly controllable outcome…

  24. LOOK AT THE BIRD
    NO LOOK AT ME
    LOOK AT THE BIRD
    NO LOOK AT ME
    LOOK AT THE BIRD, NO ONE CAN TRAP HIM
    PEW PEW PEW PEW
    THIS IS A POEM I COMPOSE IT IN YOUR HONOR
    Like if you get the reference lmao

  25. they also didn't understand body portions, if you look at paintings of babies during this time, they look like small adults. This is when men like Leonardo da vinci studied everything and kept records.
