I did not film myself doing the color swatching, I kinda felt like it was not really needed ( but if you love me to i will ☺️) but I took pictures!

For the ones who do not know what color swatching is, when you take like a template or just a blank piece of paper and you mix different colors together to figure a color scheme for your drawing or painting, etc.

for this instance I did my drawing digital, so I did the drawing on my phone using adobe draw. I did the drawing in Black & White(as above). I then saved the drawing, and inserted it into to word ( you can use anything) I made the picture in a tile format and printed out the picture. I got this idea from a artist on youtube, it was like a light bulb went off when I saw that, I never thought to do that.

Of course after I printed it out I grabbed my prismacolor pencils i started swatching using the picture above.

Usually when i color swatch i grab one color …meaning I will use different shades of green,etc. I kept the all the skin color the same I like to stick to my skin tone.

I find drawing the image on my phone and printing it helps make the draw a lot more crisp and clean and better looking. Also helps me so I won’t mess up on the image which is very heartbreaking I find doing this method makes this a whole lot easier. Another method you can do is draw the image on your sketchbook, take a picture of it, then what ever you use redraw the image and then print it.
