Steph & Adam: Hi art friends! Steph: So we have a bit of an unusual video today, do you want to explain? A: it’s fun though! I was doing that thing again where I was shopping for food and I got distracted S: yeah and if you’ve seen the title of the video, you probably have an idea of what he came back with A: I got these two plates but we had the idea that we could try and draw something on them S: and we’ve got all our trusty Posca pens back as you’ve probably seen in our Jean-Luc video A: oh yeah and I really appreciate how much you like him aswell! he was just a silly little thing in the moment S: well we have a yellow and a blue plate A: and I was curious, which plate do you want to use? S: I do actually have a plate in mind that I want to use
A: oh really?? S: I want the blue one! A: okay that’s cool! S: were you expecting that?
A: no I was expecting the yellow!
S: yeah initially I wanted the yellow one but then I came up with an idea that would look horrible on yellow haha A: she’s like “ADAM CAN HAVE THE YELLOW ONE.” S: As I start doing it, you’ll discover why it would’ve looked awful if I did it on yellow D: A: oh okay, that’s cool well I’m totally fine with the yellow one! S: so admittedly I’ve never drawn on a plate before A: no neither have I
S: I see you’ve brought in some pencils and erasers but I’m not sure if you can draw in pencil on a plate? A: I bet you could!! A: oh and one thing to note guys, the plates that we’re using
S: OOH you can kind of see the pencil S: Were you just going to tell them the brand of the plate haha? incase you want to get some yourself ;D A: they are plastic plates and the reason I picked them over porcelain ones is because I thought if we dropped them then they won’t smash S: Ohh, nice thinking they could still crack though couldn’t they?? A: Nooo not plastic! You could throw that off my head and it wouldn’t break. S: I won’t test that haha S: OH ALSO! In the post the other day, we had some of our stickers come through!
A: Yeah!! S: look how big they are! A: yeah guys if you didn’t know we have a Redbubble store where you can get stickers like these Jean-luc’s in it too now as a print and a tshirt because a couple of people asked for it so that’s in there the atomic cats are in there there’s all kinds of different things! so we’ll put a link in the description S: I need to find somewhere cool to stick these! A: hey, those would be cool *whispers* anywhere S: oh, thank you S: anyway I need to find a reference for what I’m about to do A: normally I’m the secretive one, but this time you’re the one with the big surprise! I want to see what this is all about! S: can you remember in circus’ when you get a stick to spin your plate I think they might be a different shape of plate when they do that though oh it’s magic, how does he do it A: maybe we should stick to drawing S: I’m going to watch you do yours for a bit first
A: no! S: what do you mean no!? A: so lets make sure he is nice and clean S: we’ve established that it’s a male plate A: it’s a boy oh yeah, this will work lovely S: are you drawing a stack of plates on a plate?! A: hahahah! it’s not a stack of plates! “I wish I had more plates” S: that’d be such a good plate design A: what?? having more plates on them? S: yeah, you could call it your plate plate OH it’s a yellow chicken A: it’s not a chicken!! S: can you remember on twitter when you kept accidentally using chicken emojis haha A: yeah that was.. awkward S: his old phone interpreted emojis differently
A: all the emoji’s were different and I didn’t know that was a thing 🙁 S: He’s just got an iPhone and now he’s like “oh, all my old tweets had really random emoji’s on them” A: right I need a reference so you can go away! S: if you see my reference it’ll give away what I’m doing! A: okay guys well we won’t look at her reference seeing as though it’s some big surprise, but maybe we can guess S: you’ll be able to guess so quickly, it’ll be so obvious A: is it because you’re so good?
S: well, there’s that! A: “it’s clearly the fact that I’m awesome.” ohh she’s going in A: is it a croissant? S: No it’s not a croissant, OH MY GOSH don’t do this A: oh that’d be so cool!!
S: why would I need a blue plate for a croissant?! A: because I could eat croissants at the beach S: how have you not been able to guess yet? A: OHH it’s a fish! S: YEAHH!
A: is it a dolphin? S: it was meant to be a shark but it’s coming out a lot more like an angry dolphin A: can he be an angry dolphin?? if you’re doing a dolphin.. dolphin’s don’t have gills dolphins are mammals. S: ohhh do mammals not have gills? A: no they breathe through their blow-holes, like whales! whales don’t have gills S: but my shark reference has gills A: that’s because it’s a SHARK sharks and dolphins are very different, honey S: oh no dolphin’s all look so happy, look at that guy compared to the one I’ve drawn A: he’s like “Why are you so sad Desmond?” S: Desmond??? A: Desmond the dolphin. S: my designs coming out wrong
A: I like him! I really like him! S: I wanted him to wrap around the whole circle but he’s just floating at the top like a dead fish in a fish tank haha A: he’s not dead!! oh gosh hahah S: unless I have a second one that’s following him
A: oh you could have a happy one! A happy one and a sad one. S: what on earth ahha A: it’s a plate that you eat food off, right S: yeah? A: so I like to think every time I make a meal, that a little chef makes it for me ahha and I’m the little chef S: so you’re drawing yourself as a chef? A: NO I’m sick of being the chef. I want someone to cook it for me! S: so when you saw these plates and you said you had something in mind A: I was like “oh I wish a Chef cooked my meals for me” how do you spell enemies? is that right? S: no it’s not got an “i” it’s an “e” haha! A: ohhhhhh A: it’s because I don’t have very many S: haha you don’t have many! you don’t have many en-IMES A: so this is the design I’m going for before I colour it in S: hahah as if you’ve got a knife on it! I thought it was going to be a big carrot. “lovingly made with the blood of your enemies” HAHA Oh my A: that’s what the chef makes. He’s like “Yes I am a qualified chef” what do you think? it’ll be an honour to eat food off his face 😀 S: well we have Desmond over here, I think his name was Desmond
A: Dirty Desmond S: and then we need a name for her
A: aw that’s happy Henrietta A: Henrietta and Desmond, it’s like a sitcom but with dolphins. She’s all “Desmond! I made your dinner!”
Desmond: “Coral again, Henrietta?!”>:( “I hate coral.” A: oh are you doing a design around the edge too? S: now I need some sea fish to draw on it A: oh can you put a crab on it? S: if you really want a crab then I’ll draw you one A: is that an angel fish?
S: I’m not sure haha, it’s a Google image fish. A: It’s a Google fish! if any fish need advice in the ocean, they ask the Google fish. S: but can you see why I didn’t want the yellow plate now?! they’d look like they were swimming around in someone’s wee!! although people tend to wee in the sea don’t they, maybe it’d be accurate A: HAHAH, is there something you want to tell everyone? Steph is polluting the oceans! S: thankfully we don’t live anywhere near the sea so we’re fine
A: how would you like it if a crab came into your house and weed everywhere S: I’d kind of anticipate it oh my gosh look how evil these look A: he’s raising the roof that top left one S: wouldn’t it make more sense to do the base colours and THEN do the black details, because the black might bleed into it otherwise A: eh ha, oh no fineee so maybe we should do his big chef jacket first S: ahh you’re using the brush pen that’s going on really nicely!
A: yeah I was kind of surprised S: has he got a name? A: we could leave it open to you guys? if you want to name the chef havea good look at him, study that face you’ve got to think of a name for him, what would he be called? but yeah if you guys can think of a good name, name that chef for us! S: Name that chef! A: I’d be really excited to see what you pick because you guys are really good with names S: I’ve started to put the eye in for this and the pupil looks so tiny and terrifying A: we’ve come across another animal that needs counselling S: just incase you’re looking for a tip guys, bigger pupils can help make things look friendly A: aw there we go, that’s a cute smile! S: oh I almost forgot Henrietta’s eyelashes A: her eyelashes are always on point S: I think I’ve just realised why you kept asking me for red pens.. A: so much red S: are you writing that so it looks like it’s been written in blood haha A: haha yeah!! it’s coming out a bit pink because it’s ontop of the yellow that’s one funky crab! I think the blue’s showing through the orange of this A: the good thing with Posca markers though is that you can let it dry and then layer it S: Desmond’s looking a bit more fed up than what he was meant to look Desmond: “why me” S: look how happy Henrietta is though A: she’s really cute! I really like her Desmond “Oh god. The crab got in again.” S: I’ve drawn a little sand dollar down here because when I was a kid I went to Florida and I was so obsessed with these sand dollar things A: are those the shells with the patterns in
S: yeah! they kind of have a flowery pattern to them they tend to wash up on the beach but all the ones I kept finding were very broken but the souvenir shops all really cashed in on the sand dollar industry and you could buy whole ones from there A: why are they called sand dollars?
S: I don’t actually know?? S: we have quite a few American people that follow us though so maybe they know
A: yeah do you guys know anything about these things? A: is it like ocean currency Desmond: “We need more sand dollars, Henrietta.”
Henrietta: “Our happiness will pay for our things!” Desmond: “Happiness doesn’t pay the bills.” S: my sand dollar’s looking a bit of a mess A: it looks like a sand cucumber this is what I’ve got so far I need to work on this dude next though *whacks chefs head off the camera* S: I’ve lost the pattern in my sand dollar so now it’s just a white dollop A: OH LOOK! SEA POLLUTION. why’s that orange come out so much nicer than the other one? S: I really don’t know shame we don’t have a McMermaid in this A: ohh you could’ve “squoze” one in somewhere S: squoze.
A: SQUOZEN S: that’s a nice knife
A: it’s a cleaver we could even go all out and put some blood splats on his knife S: oh dear, can you give him fairy wings or some lettuce to make him less threatening A: Lettuce?! S: are you actually going to put some lettuce in it without sketching? A: lets put some little lettuce leaves down here he’s just surrounded by lettuce or it could be kale I guess because that’s pretty hip these days it’s a shame we can’t eat off these S: would you like to?
A: yeah! Crab: “I CUT YOU” S: he needs to work with your chef! S: although your chef would probably eat him I cannot for the life of me remember what this fish was and what its colours were so maybe we should just make something up! I’m so nervous I’m going to smear the paint everywhere A: I want to get a closer look at that fish S: this is such a big, big nib A: yours is way more detailed than mine S: I’ve been spending AGES on this thing guys compared to a normal Doodle Date
A: “I hate this stupid idea!!” S: nooo I like it it’s probably my first Doodle Date masterpiece A: I did kind of spring this one on you, I was just like “LOOK! I brought plates home!” S: those are meant to be his lips because fishes always do this *smoochy face* A: we should hang these up somewhere when we’re done S: You can buy little plate stand things. Your Mum was telling me about how you can display plates A: ahhaha oh yeah she was!! “You’ve got all these plates! Put them on display!” S: I don’t think she quite had these in mind when we were talking about that though A: it’s like the wedding of Desmond and Henrietta and these are all the people that have come to the wedding S: he doesn’t look too happy to be married A: he’s doing it for the tax rebate when you’re married
S: Oh Desmond. That’s not a reason to get married. Desmond: “I love you. But I also love money”>:( S: we’ve definitely gone for polar opposite ideas as always you know I saw someone the other day saying, how come every fish that’s a customer in Spongebob is always so angry and it just made me realise, every member of the public is always in a horrible mood A: in Bikini bottom S: so what are you working on? A: I need to do his hat and his meat cleaver A: because the hats have these little line things S: I’ve never worn a real chef hat
A: really? A: I think I worn one once S: what was the occasion? A: I was being a chef S: you were being a chef haha!?! what was the context?! A: I was in School, in a cooking class
S: What? You got chef hats to wear in cookery class?? A: yeah! S: we just had to tie our hair up into bobbles but there used to be some boys in the class that had long hair that refused to tie their hair into a bobble and the teacher’s would say if they refused the bobbles they’d have to tie their hair into a hair net A: have you seen because beards are really in at the minute, people that work with food have to wear beard nets S: haha really!? I wish our school had chef hats, that’s way cooler A: well I went to a fancy.. no wait, it wasn’t a fancy school. It was not a fancy school! it just had chef hats. S: but your school had a pool! that’s posh. A: it was quite a dirty pool though S: See I tried to pick the secondary school I wanted to go to, by picking one with a pool and they didn’t accept me so I was so sad that I couldn’t go to a School with a pool A: “oh no I can’t go swimming” S: I’m terrible at swimming too, I have no idea why I was so eager to go to a school with a pool so guys if you want to see other crafty things that we’ve done, I’ll link them into a playlist above because we’ve made a craft playlist and here’s our finished plates I’m quite chuffed with how they’ve come out you know
A: yours is really pretty and if you guys have a go at drawing on a plate, let us know! S: oh yeah definitely show us if you guys end up painting a plate painting a plate.. is great A: Painting a plate is great for a Doodle Date! S: WHEYY, DOODLE DATE. A: Doodle date!
