Hey guys, welcome to another episode of Ross Draws and today I’ll be drawing one of your drawings! These videos are some of my favorites to do and I’m finally making another one. I want to keep these special and the only two times I’ve made fan videos, they blew up! Like crazy. And you guys seem to really love them. So, without further ado, let’s do it. Ross Draws! A fan’s drawing. Before we get started, we just reached 700,000 subscribers! Oh my god.Can you believe it buddy? 700,000 subscribers. We just want to say, thank you. You guys are awesome. Without you, this is impossible, so thank you. I asked on my patreon and my Instagram story for submissions of your drawings. Oh my god, there we’re like twenty thousand submissions. That is insane. I just really love looking at my communities drawing’s and seeing what you guys come up with. And the winner is… Oh! Look at that. Check it out. This drawing comes from Lujane Yacoub, who is 13 years old and her handle is foxy_draws12. Congratulations, Loujane! I just really like the symmetry and the graphic nature of it. And I feel like there’s a lot we can do. So with Loujane’s drawing, I tried to make my own sketchy interpretation Yayyy! I’m really excited for this piece. This is what we got so far so let’s jump right into it Let’s fill out these flowers a little bit. We have a nice impact, it’s very graphic and bold. I’m just gonna keep working on it and I’ll check back soon. Hey guys, welcome back and this is the progress of our piece so far. So I’m gonna show you guys something I’m doing with the composition that I find really cool. Before we do that, let’s add a really soft background The background kind of helps frame her a lot more. I feel like this is a lot closer to the vibe that I’m aiming for. This piece is pretty much symmetrical. As humans, we really like symmetry, but also symmetry can be super boring and our brain likes to change it up So when you have a symmetrical design, things that are asymmetrical are more interesting. There is a shift in the shoulders. Which contrasts the angle of hips. Let’s try to exaggerate it real quick. Ooo. Look at that. Kind of rotating it, you see like that. I’m gonna go the other way with this. This is before and after. Ooo. You see how more interesting that kind of looks. Before and after. I’m not really sure what version I’m gonna commit to but I’m just gonna keep working on it and I’ll check back soon. Yeah, it’s looking pretty good. I’m gonna add a white tiger in the back. I’m breaking the symmetry again by adding this tail. This kind of reminds me of the first fan video that I did. The Flower Girl! They’re both um… kind of naked. [Laughter] Covered with flowers. I feel like every fan video from now on, it’s just gonna be like, these revealing girls with little plants. I feel like this is a perfect perfect time to add some highlights! There are some really key spots that we could really emphasize. Oooo. A little on the lips. Ooo that’s pretty. I feel like it would be really cool if It’s kind of like that moonlight is shining right behind her and it’s gonna hit her anatomy a little bit. And with that moonlight, there’s gonna be a few strands of hair. This is before and after. These simple lighting techniques can really help breathe life to your piece. This is almost done. So I’m gonna wrap it up and I’ll check back soon Yo girl, it’s color dodge time! Aw man, here we go, here we go. Ooooo! Yea! Wow buddy! Milo! Look out! Milo! You wanna battle, let’s battle!
