Platonic Doodle Date #2

Last week I wrote about me and my friend Cayden using three different challenges from the Arty Games app by YouTuber Draw With Jazza.  We were too over-confident and decided that 10 minutes was plenty because we had very simplistic styles.  We were wrong.


Cayden had a better time with the colouring (on the left) than I did because he used a sensible sized sketchbook, unlike me.  He used an A5 pad, and I used an A4 one.  I did not learn my lesson.

We decided to have another go, but with 20 minutes instead.  We generated our colour palette (using my handy Copic Conversions)…


…we generated our scribble…

… we laid out our pencils, erasers, inking pens and markers.  We set the 20 minute timer and off we went.

20 minutes was definitely a lot easier.  But it was still stressful – in a fun kinda way.  Again, Cayden managed a better colouring job than me because of his proper sized sketchbook.  I also had issues with the purple running out.  Guess which one is mine…


This is another piece we’re going to redo with no time limit.  Although I think Cayden’s looks pretty damn good as it is. He even managed to add a shadow!

I’m not sure why I keep drawing birds for these. Next time I will make an effort to draw something else.  And I will use a sensible size sketchbook.
