Drawing with HIGHLIGHTERS – mini art challenge


– Hi art friends! – [Adam] Hi art friends! – Today we’ve decided we want to have a go at drawing with some highlighters. – [Adam] Yeah, well is it
like a highlighter challenge? – Eh, I guess. I dunno. – [Adam] Impromptu highlighter challenge. (laughing) What’s that? You having some trouble there? – There we go. Ooh, look at all these colours. I haven’t even owned half of
these in highlighter before? – [Adam] I’ve never seen highlighters in some of those colours before. – Yeah, there’s so many different shades of blue and green (laughing). – [Adam] Ooh. – I’ll pop them down there. – [Adam] Okay. – [Steph] Let’s hope
it doesn’t attract bees ’cause it’s so colourful. – [Adam] Yeah you guys
very kindly pointed out it was a bumblebee in our other video. (laughing) – [Steph] Oh no. – [Adam] Look at these guys. They heard about the highlighter challenge and they wanted to join in. – [Steph] Do we just keep
still, what do we do? – [Adam] They’re just
comin’ to check us out. They won’t do anything. You guys better behave. – [Steph] Just so you know they’re the ones who
followed us over here. – [Adam] We’re gonna back you up guys. – [Steph] I mean they’re
very beautiful references. – [Adam] I love how that guy’s just like just act natural, I’ll
just eat some grass. – [Steph] I’m gonna draw him. – [Adam] The other dude’s
not very inconspicuous, he’s just like huh? I forgot how to goose. – [Steph] Maybe they’re on a date? – [Adam] Like party’s over there. You’re on your way to the party guys? Gotta look good. Adam that one’s making some weird noises. – [Steph] I know. I truly feel like– – [Adam] They’re just
like circling around us, should we be nervous? – [Steph] I’m drawing these Canada geese I think they’re called. – [Adam] Canada goose. Yeah you guys kindly said
they’re not Canadian geese, they’re apparently Canada
geese goose things. I didn’t think this would
turn into such an awesome life drawing session. – I know right. – [Adam] They’re all right there. – I wish they’d keep more still. – [Adam] They’re like I’m here for the sketching class, I’m your model. That one’s totally ditchin’
’em to go to the party. See ya later. – [Steph] I’m going to do really colourful Canadian geese I guess. – [Adam] He’s got that
swagger walk going on. (upbeat instrumental music) Wow, look is that Barry? (laughing) – [Steph] Have you come
to join in as well? – [Adam] Barry! Barry come here. (laughing) – [Steph] I like how he just
sort of awkwardly looks over. Oh hello. – [Adam] How’s it going Barry? You going to the party too? – [Steph] There’s some geese over there if you want to make some friends. Oh he’s going (laughing). – [Adam] Aw, he’s such
a cute little goose. – I never really plan
out my subject matter for these drawings as
you could probably tell with the washi tape. – [Adam] Well guys we were plannin’ to do just some kind of random highlighter thing and then nature just sort
of descended on us again and I guess we’re doing
geese and stuff now. – Oh, your sketchbook’s blowin’. – [Adam] Oh no. I better draw something too. – [Steph] Now what are you drawing? – Well seeing as you’re
already doing a goose like a full on goose. – [Steph] There’s a goose. – I was gonna try and do
maybe like a human goose, like a character goose (laughing). That sounds so weird. Imagine a Canadian goose
but as a superhero, that’s what I’m gonna go for. – [Steph] Oh, so like one
of those themed parties. – Yeah, they think they’re a hero but they’re just going to a themed party. Yeah, that’s the plan. Oh look a butterfly. Oh yeah, you’re scared of butterflies. (laughing) Oops, we get distracted by everything. – [Steph] Oh, that’s lookin’ pretty cool. – It’s gonna be a superhero. By the power that is all
Canadian, I am Canada goose. I’m really sorry if you’re Canadian. (laughing) And you get offended by this. – [Steph] You’ve done a
really cool job with the paws considering you don’t have
a reference or anything. – I have to become the Canada goose woman. It’s just gonna start
runnin’ around whoosh. Where are you guys, woah, it’s a race. (laughing) (spring boinging) Look at those legs. Hey he’s cheatin’, he’s jumpin’. Oh, now he’s going that way. Watch me jump. – [Steph] Part of me’s tempted
to just do all the background in highlighter and then
try to see if I’ve got other stuff to colour him in with. – [Adam] Oh okay. Maybe mix it up. – [Steph] I don’t know. I just want to do a good job of him. – [Adam] What are you using? – [Steph] I want to try to use the purple to colour in this plant thing. I’ll show you my reference,
it’s right next to me. See that in there? – [Adam] What’s that thing? What is that? – [Steph] I don’t know, I’m
just drawing it (laughing). Nature provided me with
it so I shall draw it. That’s another problem with highlighters is that they’re all chisel
tips and for little details you really have to be quite careful. We’ve had to move ’cause
a random photographer wanted to take photos
of the geese I think. – [Adam] Zoom in on him. You did this to me. – The geese are very popular
around here apparently. – [Adam] Yeah, the
geese are super popular. That goose has some lovely legs. This is what I’ve got so far guys. – [Steph] The Mildliners are a lot better for lining with. – [Adam] Oh, because
you’ve got the fine tip. – [Steph] Yeah I’ve a little
fine side so you can really get in those little tiny bits. – [Adam] This is what I’ve got so far. Stickin’ to the superhero theme. I don’t know how I’m going
to do the wings yet guys. – [Steph] Oh there’s a goose on the front. – [Adam] Yeah. – [Steph] That’s so cool. – [Adam] What are you
going to be colouring this side of the goose with? I think you’ve been putting
this off for awhile. – [Steph] Yeah, I have intentionally. So I was waiting, I might do
it in this Mildline orange. If he looked like this in the wild he would not be able
to camouflage anywhere. – [Adam] Unless he was in a banana tree? It totally looks like
little bananas on his wings. – [Steph] Little banana patterns. – [Adam] Yeah. You’ve discovered a new breed of goose. The banana goose. – [Steph] You need to
start colouring in yours. – [Adam] I’ve been having so much fun, I’ve really procrastinated in this one. I’ve been having so much fun
just chasing nature around. – [Steph] Adam’s working
some pencil magic over here. – [Adam] Yeah and again I
didn’t bring a sharpener so the lines look terrible. The lines are way too thick. But it does help you think
on your feet though guys. – [Steph] The focus of this is gonna be on the highlighters so I wouldn’t worry about your pencil technique too much. – [Adam] Oh okay. I have to admit it’s been fun doing that. A week of videos outside. It’s been fun coming out again
now the weather’s actually somewhat decent to us. Better get those big meaty fists in. – [Steph] Oh, you actually
usin’ a highlighter? – It’s highlighter time. – [Steph] Woo! – [Adam] I was thinkin’ of giving her, have you noticed I’ve started smudging. I was like oh this is looking cool and then completely forgettin’ the whole point of this video. – [Steph] Yeah, you’re going to mucky up all our new highlighters. – I’m sorry! Ooh, oh wow this is
like, my eyes are like. That’s super like woah. – [Steph] I wonder if
it’ll show on the video. – [Adam] I hope it does ’cause this is– – [Steph] How luminous it is in real life. – Messin’ with me this is crazy. I know, let’s give her some pink eyes ’cause all superheroes
have magic eyes right? – [Steph] Pinkeye (laughing). – Yeah, or maybe a
goose farted on her face and she got pinkeye. – [Steph] I like how we’re out in nature and we’re making all these sci fi. – Maybe there’s just a squirrel dropping the bass over there somewhere. I’m going to try now I’ve
coloured in the little chest bit and then get in with the
actual goose emblem things. – [Steph] The goose emblem. – Well you know like Superman has the S. I was thinkin’ maybe she could
just have a friendly goose. Whenever there’s a goose in need, a goose girl comes and saves them. – [Steph] Is that when geese honk? – [Adam] Yeah. Goose girl, honk! (laughing) – [Steph] I’ve been trying
to think what colour would be best for the goose’s
head and his legs and stuff and I think this purple’s gonna be the closest thing I have to a dark. – [Adam] It’s kind of like
he’s got a sock on his neck. (laughing) Sock goose. What would you rate these
markers, markers, highlighters? What do you think of them? – [Steph] I really like them. I sometimes buy the pawn shop ones and I always find that
they dry out a lot faster. They’re very nice compared to
some of the ones that I have. – [Adam] We just hope
we’re doing them justice on these weird goose drawings. – [Steph] Although I’ve
heard you can buy alcohol and a certain type of
rubbing alcohol or whatever and you put it in the marker and it can revitalise them or something. – [Adam] Oh wow, that’s pretty useful. – [Steph] I’ve never tried it though. – [Adam] You’re gonna
totally use up all of these. I think these will become an
instant favourite for you. – [Steph] It’s a shame
that it’s so hard to fit highlighters in pencil cases
’cause they’re so chunky. I can only fit one in mine. The Mildliners are good though. You can fit a lot of
Mildliners in a pencil case. – [Adam] Look at that blue beak. – [Steph] This is a purple. – [Adam] Purple beak. (laughing) Oh he does actually have matching socks. Got one on my face and two on my feet. – [Steph] And I’ll probably end up doing these bits in it as well. – [Adam] He’s a very
colour coordinated goose, I’ll give him that. – [Steph] I’m trying my hardest with a limited colour palette. Still trying to capture
the essence of goose. – [Adam] I see you Mr. Squirrel. – [Steph] Oh he’s so cute. – [Adam] He’s like look at my butt. Look at my butt while I eat nuts. – [Steph] Oh you’re using the yellow. – [Adam] I’m thinkin’ of
giving her bright yellow hair. – [Steph] Oh and the yellow is always the first one to get
tainted with pencil lead. – [Adam] Do you think I should try? – [Steph] Yeah, just go for it. – [Adam] It’s on you. Here we go. – [Steph] You can kind of do
some scribblin’ afterwards to try and clean it out. It does look good though. I think she suits the yellow hair. – [Adam] I think I’m gettin’ lucky here. – [Steph] Are you subconsciously trying to put me into this character? – [Adam] Yeah I’m like what would Steph do if she mutated with a goose? I’d like to think if
you mutated with a goose you’d fight crime. – [Steph] Yeah, me too. – [Adam] And help geese. I think I got super lucky. I was worried that all of the
pencil would get pulled off and smudged but I think I got very lucky. – [Steph] I just realised I think the photographer man’s run away. – [Adam] Yeah he did. – [Steph] Oh did you see him? – [Adam] He gave us evils when he left. He’s like I’m watching you. – [Steph] Oh he’s gone up there look. He’s in the tree. – [Adam] Are you spying on me? – [Steph] He’s just staring
at us, that’s kind of weird. – [Adam] Whatcha doin’? I kind of wish I’d drawn
a squirrel character now. – [Steph] Yeah. – [Adam] Oh, here he comes. Where are you going? Where you going? – [Steph] I love the way the– – [Adam] Woah, he’s woah. I’ve lost him. Follow me guys. Oh wow this tree’s taller
than I thought it was. Oh wait a second, I’m on to something. Now I’m not an expert but
I don’t think this squirrel got these peanuts from this tree. Look! He’s been feastin’ in here. That’s crazy, it’s like a secret stash. – [Steph] The weather’s
been unusually good for April to be honest. – Yeah, especially with
this week of video guys, we’ve gotten very lucky. – [Steph] Yeah. We probably won’t get this lucky again for another six years. (laughing) – Tune in in six years time when we do Doodle Date daily again. No, hopefully it’ll be sooner than that. (laughing) it’s been a lot of fun and I’m really, well we’re both really glad
you’ve been so into it, We definitely want to do
it again in the future. Hopefully again this year too. – [Steph] It would be nice. – [Adam] Oh I know what I could give her. – [Steph] What? – And I could do it
with a highlighter too. You know people have letters
tattooed across their fingers? – [Steph] Oh yeah. – She could have that. – [Steph] Like goose life. – I was thinkin’ bird life. – [Steph] Oh really? – Unless she had a few more
fingers to fit goose on. Okay, let’s give that a try. – [Steph] I wonder if
anyone actually has that tattoo in real life? – [Adam] Maybe someone who’s
super passionate about birds. It’s Tarzan goose. He looks pretty shifty (laughing). What if I just wander
over here really slowly. I’m gonna find some food. – [Steph] Subscribe for more art videos and I’ll pop a playlist
of all of the videos from this past week of daily Doodle Date. – Yeah, it was eight days guys. We hope you enjoyed it and
we’re determined to do it again. – [Steph] One day. (laughing) – One day. And here’s the finished
artwork for today guys. – [Steph] Yeah, here’s a little close up. There we go. Thanks so much for watching this week. We really appreciate it. – Yeah, thanks guys it’s
been an amazing journey. – [Steph] Thanks for hanging out with us. – Doodle Date. – Doodle Date, bye!
