How to Color a Face with a Coffee Cup Instructions
Hi, everyone, it’s Natalie and tonight I’m going to be coloring this picture that I prepared ahead of time. I was browsing Pinterest, and I was looking at different pictures and what I could possibly draw for tonight. I stumbled across a picture of a girl drinking from a coffee cup and I thought it would be a fun thing to draw because it allows me to practice drawing hands. Which is something that I admit I’m not that skilled at and therefore by drawing a picture with hands, I can practice and get better at it. So that’s why I decided to do this picture in particular. I hope you guys enjoy it. I know last week, I didn’t have any videos and I apologize for that because I was busy with school work. I’m coming back to a new semester and just needed a week to kind of sort out all of my assignments and make sure I had everything under control. So it’s okay now because I’m back this week. So I hope you guys understand, but I will hopefully be making videos all this week unless something crazy comes up.
So let’s get started, as always, I’m using Prismacolor pencils on Strathmore gray paper. You can purchase both of these products at Hobby Lobby and Michael’s or if you don’t have craft stores in your area, you can always go onto Amazon because Amazon always has these items in stock. So the Prismacolors you can buy a container like this. They come in various sets, you can get 12, 24, 48, 72, I think they also have 144 which is a lot. But again, you can get those anywhere and this is what the pad of paper looks like you can get this at craft stores as well. It’s fairly inexpensive. It’s $11.99 for a pad of 50 sheets, and that should last you a while.
[1:40] In addition, you can use a 40% off coupon and get some money off so you can save some money there. Also this pencil sharpener I just started using it not too long ago but I really like it. It’s the Prismacolor pencil sharpener that you guys suggested I get.I’m in love with this sharpener, it sharpens really well and you have two different options. You can have a shorter stubbier tip or a long pointy one and I think that they’re both great. I guess it really depends on what you’re planning to color, which one you’ll use. But, yeah, let’s get started.
[2:14] So allow me to get out my colors.
[2:35] As always, I like to start with the eyes just because the eyes are so central to the piece. I feel most comfortable starting with them.
[4:03] Wendy, I purchased this pencil sharpener at Hobby Lobby, it was kind of expensive around $10. But I did use the 40% off coupons so I actually got it for 6. But if you go by just make sure you get that coupon because I think $10 for a pencil sharpener is a hefty price but at the same time, it’s a really nice sharpener. Destiny, hands aren’t really that easy for me. I have to revise them multiple times and before I made this video for you guys, I was sketching this and I kept erasing and redrawing the hands. So it did take a while for me to get them into a position that looked okay for me. I think that there’s still a few things that I’d like to change about them. I tried my best.
[6:06] Cassandra, I’m 17.
[6:44] To add some highlight to the eyes, I’m going to be using the Sharpie white paint marker. These are really cool because it is a way that you can create highlights on your piece rather easily and it’s clean as well. You don’t have to worry about paint getting everywhere. Although this, I do think, is a better method of doing it just because you’re able to get a range of colors from opaque to more of a transparent white. So that’s super helpful whenever you’re trying to shade things that would require that full range. However, since the eyes are so small, I think a small white dot is sufficient, so I’m just going to use this but whenever I color my large eyes, I definitely want to use this because you can get a larger range of white.
[8:57] Right now I’m cleaning up some of the pencil marks that I made while I was sketching the piece. Sometimes whenever I’m sketching, I do some basic shading just to give me an idea of what goes where and to make sure that once everything is colored and shaded, it will look all right. Based on the proportions I sketched out that since I’m in the process of coloring, I don’t really need these lines anymore.
[11:02] Guys make sure that you go check out the video’s description where you’ll find links to my Instagram account where you can check out some of the other things that I’m doing. You can
[11:10] go to my Etsy store and purchase my drawings if you’d like. I know a lot of you have and I’m very thankful for that because all the proceeds from that are going towards my trip to France and Italy this March with school. Every purchase helps with that. I’m almost at my goal of all the money I need. So you guys definitely helped out a lot, every time you purchase my drawing on Etsy. I try to list them all once I’ve finished them on the show. [11:36] So keep checking back periodically to see what drawings are up. The last link is to Kids Activities blog where you can download and print some free coloring pages I created. In the next couple of days or so I’ll have some more up there. I have them completed, they’re sitting on my desk, I just have to scan them and upload them. So I know it’s been a while since I uploaded some pictures but you guys will have some new ones pretty soon.
[14:27] For those of you who are just now entering the video I’m using Prismacolor colored pencils on Strathmore toned gray paper.
[24:56] Sara, I’m using Prismacolor colored pencils on Strathmore gray paper. You get both of these things at Hobby Lobby or Michael’s but if you don’t have those stores in your area, you can always check out Amazon.
[29:06] Maurine, this will be for sale in the next couple of days once I finish it. I won’t be able to finish it tonight because I only have 30 minutes left to color. But I might finish it tomorrow night and then I’ll subsequently post it on Etsy just depends if I finish it or not. Otherwise I’ll post it Thursday night whenever I finish it then, if I don’t finish it tomorrow, but I think I’ll definitely be able to finish it tomorrow.
[33:59]A piece of advice I always give whenever people ask me for the little tips and tricks on drawing hair is, always make sure you draw in those little wispy hairs that are always loose from the main clumps of hair, because it can help enhance the picture with a sense of realism. Because you’ll have all these little hairs flying around and it will look more realistic that way since, no one’s hair is really perfect unless you hair gel that down. But like I said, this is just something that’s a nice little accent. You can do just by sharpening your pencil to where the tip is very sharp, including little flyaway hairs like this. [34:52] Don’t forget to allow the hairs to hang over the face as well.
[38:31] Marisol, I was browsing Pinterest for random pictures that I could use as inspiration and possibly I could save them for later, I found a picture of a woman drinking from a teacup. I thought that was a really cute idea because I like the pose of it and the dynamics of the hands. So I kind of use that as inspiration but the hair I kind of came up with myself and the shirt. She’ll be wearing a striped shirt by the way that I kind of threw in myself because I really like striped shirts. In fact, I’m wearing stripes right now. I love stripes a lot. So that’s why I included them.
