PASTEL WATERCOLOR BRUSH PENS! | Mystery Art Supplies | Scrawlrbox Unboxing | Mermay

today I'm gonna be opening up the April Scarl or box I don't know if if you're as excited as I am to open it but I'm gonna pretend you are okay so the art supply is oh dang this is gorgeous okay so the art supplies are these eco line brush pens which I haven't used before what is this baby so do I need an eraser and get it out of this clear prison no no baby this is a kneaded eraser there's a bit of a smell to it cat smells like makeup weird I love kneaded erasers because the cool thing about kneaded erasers is when you erase you know how you'll get like those eraser shavings everywhere and it's just like a huge mess these are racers don't do that they actually absorb the graphite instead so they're kind of like my go-to because growing up I drew a lot on my bed and all right so everything's in your bed let me tell you that's all I'll say about that I like the color though I've only ever seen like the gray ones or in my case they turned black the more that you use them because they're observing that graphite honestly it like leaves bits of everything on me stop probably time to say goodbye Kandy this month is this little fruit salad candy thing have you ever had that it'll be exciting to try for a pencil we have the Viking element one graphite writing pencil HB there is no eraser but I feel like I want to name this beluga I know are you seeing what I'm seeing for pens we have these to uni pen fineliners which I believe these have a little yes I did okay yeah these these these are different colors this one's dark grey and this is light grey but they do have that cute feature that I love the little windows for the nibs that brings you so much new way that's that's ridiculous this is 0.5 and this darker Gray's I actually 0.1 then finally the main attraction we have the Eco line brush pens it looks like it's the pastel pack it's actually gonna be perfect because this may be the April box but it is currently made you don't want to doll the mermaid and these are actually watercolor brush pens I'm really pretty packaging we have cold grey light pastel rose has tell violet pastel blue and I'm gonna go to the what is this pastel green yep there we are mmm so I believe these are brush Tippy's like so and they're filled with liquid watercolor I have used one of these in the past and I really really liked it but I use it in like conjunction with like liquid watercolor and I think it was a watercolor pencil and it worked really really well I'll have that video linked if you want to check that out that actually went really well so I'm thinking about it no I don't know why I thought maybe just crushing all my hopes and dreams see what kind of paper they've included those don't look very pastel I don't know maybe some other people got other colors though the artist who created this beautiful calligraphy piece here is Kiki B and you can find them on their Instagram at the Kiki b and then the paper looks like we have some watercolor that's nice and thick a little bit off white let's see what they say about us okay I don't think they mentioned the paper that's weird yeah they don't mention the paper usually they mention what paper this is so if you like it you can go out and buy more of it but ya know no information on that I wonder if that means it's a Kansan XL what I've been doing all my mermaid pieces on on this paper right here so I'm gonna actually test the supplies on both in case I want to try and you know go that route I do roughly know how they work so I'm just gonna swatch them out okay yeah I don't think I don't think I'm gonna get away using it on my cardstock now you see that these pens are actually transparent so you can layer them on top of each other and I believe since they're watercolor you can actually blend them with water before putting them on the canvas so here's a palette that I've used with my core watercolors and I'm gonna try some of these cleaner spots adding water to these in the scene what happens I wonder if you should just put this in there grab a brush now you can see like the little gradient that that made and if you layer it you'll get like a nice darker color although I am noticing that this paper so it's kind of like beat up if I go over it too many times with the watercolor I'm gonna have to keep that in mind what starts sketching out some ideas here I definitely want to draw mermaids so I want to figure out the pose the cool thing about doing mermaids is I think it really helps you create more expressive lines in your characters because mermaids are usually very swishy and floaty that's why I would encourage anyone who's interested to definitely give murmee a try here pointing out back this one that's got interesting I think my favorite part about this is just the way the hands are for the arms more like I guess I probably should mention that I am doing murmee so I'm trying to draw a mermaid everyday for the month of May and I'm posting them all over on my Instagram so if you're interested in seeing those drawings and sketches I will have a link in the description we can quickly check that out if this video is boring you yeah and then when it comes to like a hair with a mermaid I like to use it to like I don't know help lay out the drawing so right now we have a very weird shape not sure I made the right decisions but we can usually take the hair and kind of fix some mistakes so like fill this white area I'm usually pretty lazy when it comes to drawing scale so I'll just draw the odd one here and there now well I had a little too much fun with this sketch it doesn't really layout the page and I do want to draw it on this paper here so we need to keep that in mind when were thumbnailing so we're going to draw just a quick rough rectangle wait flip fish what if she's just like floating there we're supposed I could draw a dude nah hmm this one's kind of boring me let's try again I am using the watercolor paper so I would like to try throwing on some colors what happens if you do put it over the graphite does it make a mess oh we're gonna have some like Hugh ships here it's actually pretty it couldn't use these over pencil although there is a little bit of a discoloration on the tip there I could try something a little bit more dramatic for a pose with like foreshortening and stuff like like this is her shoulders hands are going way back then her body would get like that it should be like looking straight up kind of like aerial coming out of her Cove here's a tip if you can't figure out how to draw it small you're probably not gonna be able to draw it larger which is why thumbnails are a great place to start new the hair is going behind her so after a few sketches the only thing that's really like inspiring me like the part of like the most are like the way these arms are what if we didn't do like a full body shot like mostly head and torso then we can fit those arms in I want the tail bend this way is that a bit of a stretch so that we can like pull the tail back into the frame no might work it's a little crazy since there's so few scales in this picture maybe I can actually go ahead and draw them all maybe the bra can be made out of like a bunch of shells get some tone in here see where that looks good dry keeps it drawing inside the squares as much as possible so I can have a better visualization of what that's going to look like new Blowfish could be right here yeah if it's there that's kind of cute that's a nice bubbles for aesthetic purposes yeah let's move on to our sheet of papers where it gets a little nerve-racking don't want to mess up the head is like in the top-left – a bit here you want our really light and really make sure we get the shapes and everything fitting on to the page that's the hair by the way shoulders are kind of tucked down that way takes a good eye to realize what the differences are between two sketches especially when you're trying to make them the same I think it's this here I bring this hand down a bit kind of fill that space then we have blobfish up here that'd be as can be then her tail we wanted it to come back around I wonder if I could grab this other piece of paper that we're not using let's figure out where this will be no that's a way lower isn't it we hadn't like filling in this space but I feel like this makes more sense anatomically although mermaids are mythical right and draw them however we want maybe they have very long tails personally I kind of like this because I feel like it all points up towards their heads now like this tails pointing up at the faces the hair kind of like points up at the face the body you know it's kind of what I'm thinking about what I'm doing this get this nose but I don't know I'm rendering anything I'm going to erase the pencil or annoy my dad I got lost in the drilling I guess cool thing with the need eraser you can actually just like rub it back and forth like this and it'll pick up some of the lid not taking all of it and then you can kind of fix some mistakes without having to worry about like scrunching the paper when you're laying on let's make these straps more ropey so maybe they're like made out of nuts I feel like fighting myself because sometimes I like to keep it really simple and sometimes I like to go in with a little bit more details and it basically just comes down to parts start getting like boring and repetitive and you want to change it up a bit for the most part I kind of do the same thing over and over again and I'm happy so good enough for me straight across I don't think I've done that yet so this fabric goes into the back and then there's like a tie in the back but then the ropes also come up in front and like crisscross a bit they push cross probably in the center here just make sure that happens yes I would look something like this and then maybe this fabric is like overlaid with some seashells figure out how that would look use some basic shapes for now pearls kind of lining the top there you also need some scales down here what if she is like a hat it's like an or wall like it's just one of those hats he kind of like had to pin into your hair it's like only on the side work be one of those shells that just looks like that that's kind of interesting give some visual interest to like the top half of the drawing here do Chevy a little bit more elegant a little bit more like vintage like that 50s or 40s let's loop although they be pulled much closer to the forehead but you know inspired wave I like it because it looks like it's like kind of following the flow of the water oh we still didn't do this hand shoot or is that supposed to go and she has a very large head but I only just realize that so I'm not really willing to do anything about that I'm not going to put a lot more detail into these shells because this sketch kind of gives me enough to work with and then I can just do it with the line art otherwise I'm kind of doing the same job choice you know I need blood fish maybe the tail goes back that way razor is nice draw draw draw see like that nice too far to the left yeah I like that better yeah I like that a lot better so what I'm going to do take the kneaded eraser you kind of just rub the drawing so that we lighten it up see how it's collecting on there and then I don't have to worry about you know scrunching the paper I love this plug-in at the bottom of my hand isn't it like this so now I have a nice light sketch that I can work with with the line art and I believe if we like stretch this out even out the look graphite there we go belugas back I'm going to start with 0.5 and do the eyeliner like that to be pretty bold I won't color in the eyes in case we want to color them we basically just trace over all our favorite lines the more work you did in the sketch layer and like time you put into figuring out which lines you like the best the easier the line art stage is because you know you've already laid that groundwork even after erasing most of the pencil it's a very similar color to this is light gray so I kind of like have to stop and think did I do that already no I didn't okay let me go over that I've been kind of challenging myself to put as few lines into the hair as possible and still having it look like hair sometimes I fail and it just like yeah screw it and I should have moved on the lines but each time I started drawing I try my best to ropes down let's do these shoe shells that I left later it's later now I think that's appearing I'm pretty good actually no complaints so far kind of messed up that show but we won't talk about it there we go getting somewhere now we need some more ropes down here this hand I'm a little concerned about Lucy got a finger cut uh another finger sorry sorry nothing's nothing's ruined yet alright a little french fry but it's fine that's a little less french fry there we go now that the line art is done we can go in with Beluga again here and erase some more boo-boo there we go next step we want to add some colors although wait movie I want to take a picture of us so I can keep it as line art all right pictures taken see we wanted a very light blue skin just a little bit of water there and then let's try that let's do it in an area you might not look at first test that out I think my goal is to kind of try and get a nice base layer without too many streaks before I like going in and start adding in maybe shading or texture since these are transparent it's kind of a little tricky it's gotta work fast I get a little darker here might be in shadow I always like to wait a little bit before doing the face it's like it a good grasp of the art supplies so we can try and avoid too many streaks like if you make a mistake in the art whatever but like the face I want it to like kind of showcase that maybe I do kinda know what I'm doing sometimes on occasion a little bit of shading on the hairline maybe trying to add a little blush II blush to the nose a little bit of a hue shift you see how it's like eating the paper a little bit I'm not really sure this paper is what I would suggest for these markers personally now once this purple gets its life back we can start doing the scales maybe kind of trying to avoid some of the scales give it more fun texture then we go in with the pink and fill those in I really like the color that creates a new layer the pink and the purple maybe outline some of these shapes with the purple they'll create shadows as it like layers on top of itself and dilute the pink a little and maybe come up on the blue bit create a gradient and then in the background here we want this to be very dark purple let me go over it one layer of purple okay I don't know why it's freckling over here but that looks kind of gross not a fan wonderful supposed to use the other side of the paper or something weird because when I try to get like a really dark color it's not too pretty just to go in with the handsome going in with a light purple kind of add some texture to the hands here little fleshiness yeah you can only layer them so much it's not like bleeding through the paper or anything it just creates that ugly freckling then I think I wanted the hair kind of the same color that let me try and not make the same mistakes I did with that crap I'm gonna have a line there my bad try to fill the sections I always get really frustrated when the art supplies I feel like are fighting me like whenever I try to use this pen on this paper more than once it like peels the paper and you get these like it's almost like like eraser shavings but it's the paper and I feel like that just makes your art look very very amateur and you kind of frustrates me and it's not fun fun that's that's that's the blunt of it really see see where it's about the weird dark patches that's what's happening the worst yeah it's like impossible to get a nice even coverage with this I think that's the paper though not these markers because I these markers on nicer paper is it just the can sandpaper and I do not remember having this trouble yeah I think it was Canton Excel watercolor paper and it did not have this problem yeah you get like the first layer down but then as soon as you try to get it any darker hold tight here and fro bumpy ride see sure I think I'll have it I wanted it to be light pink do some color around the eyes a little bit here maybe some pink eyeballs pupils whatever all right now I'm a little worried about the background cuz I wanted to do a little bit of layering for that but I mean we're already just deepen and I did take a picture of the line art so I still have something la let's layer a little bit of green so I want it to be solid green at the bottom did you find you once let's do the small section for do a couple layers of that that's a little bit murky and then we try putting some blue over top like a light blue looks like that no no doesn't look the way it did here maybe needs more blue but I'm getting that speckling that I really really don't like and then as it goes at the top I should be just blue okay let me get white at the top if there's enough Sun there right not sure it really looks the way I expected you to know something about this looks way water here I think it's a splotchiness all that like color and splotches great like shapes I do think that actually looks better a little bit more like the thumbnail at least my favorite part of this drawing right now is this hand right here I feel like there's no beading it's nice and I don't know it's just the way I it pictured it in my head it kind of looks like for the coloring but the rest of this I don't know can you see I don't have girls bellick's it looks like I used like Crayola watercolors and I've used these art supplies in the past they've not done that so I think I'll have to blame the paper I don't like here I actually have alright I was really happy with the way the sketch is going I feel like I put and adequate amount of time into it and then the colors just yeah look at it I feel like it doesn't even look as bad as it's making me feel but like I wanted to darken up this hair a couple more times so that it was darker than you know the rest of the purple and the drawing but when I do that it just looks worse so I think I'll just leave it I tried can you tell you see the little bits that's the paper just shredding underneath the the marker feels a little bit that's just the paper I don't know man but I do like the illustration I created before I put the color on yeah I never listed the paper no at least we've got a little Beluga here there's a bright side anyway I do want to thank you guys for watching I hope you enjoyed watching me unbox the April scholar box even if the end result wasn't what I was expecting it was a fun process up until I don't even know what to say yeah thank you guys for watching

  1. When you said "is this weird" it made me realize that you were asking whether or not the frame of understanding/reference was too far away. It made me recontextualize the schoolyard insult "being weird" as just being something original enough that it makes you question your conceptualizations of the world. Weirdness is a gift 😉

  2. I would love for you to use the line art and make a digital art version! The line art was amazing for this

  3. I wanna make an art channel, hardest thing for me would be trying to think what to talk about am I right?!

  4. My baby bro threw away my needed eraser when I got the April set I almost cryed my baby left me🤧

  5. I really really really really really really really liiiiiikeeee your sketching process😍😁


  7. Ive been looking for a white kneaded eraser for so long! There was one in an art kit thing I got once and it was amazing and I just want a white one again! (i could swear it was a paint by numbers but that makes no sense why would that have an eraser), I am so going to get this one!!!! AHHHHHHH

  8. Drawing Wiff Waffles, where can you get kneaded erasers? Please let me know because I hate when the reg erasers make a mess.

  9. 16:55
    "I don't know why it's freckling over here but that looks kind of gross"
    My 5 year-old sister, watching the video with me: No it's not!
    "It's not too pretty"
    5yo: Yes it is! [Laughs] She's wrong! Very wrong.

  10. Please draw some Pokemon. And maybe Dawn, May and Misty. Make Misty the prettiest because Dawn is sometimes way prettier than her.

  11. Guys im from the Philippines in batangas nasugbu
    Does any of you guys know where the heck i can buy sketchbooks and not sketchpads?

  12. Yeahh… I heard from EmilyArtful that's it's recommended to have 100% cotton paper. It absorbs the watercolor without the awkward dark spots.

  13. Hey you should make this a line art and post it n your google thingy where you post line art of your art for us to color in, because this sketch is so cute!
