THE VIDEO EVERYONE REQUESTED?! // SKETCHBOOK vs POSCA PENS!

THE VIDEO EVERYONE REQUESTED?! // SKETCHBOOK vs POSCA PENS!


Wow, it’s a really windy day here. There are people mowing outside. There are so many noises that I cannot control and it’s just a bummer. So sorry if there’s weird noises coming in. We are going to do a video today that you guys have requested. so I decided on Instagram the other day to have you request videos that you want to see on my channel and this was the most requested one. I was kind of shocked actually because I didn’t think people were into these videos. I just always did them for fun. I didn’t think it was something that I guess people wanted to see but the sketch with me videos were highly requested when I did that That’s what we’re doing today. We’re doing a sketch with me. I kind of want to practice anatomy a little bit. So we’re gonna do that in today’s video and you guys can sketch along. This is going to be a longer video. I kind of feel like doing a longer video today. I don’t know, you guys want to talk and live draw? We haven’t really done that in a while. I kind of like doing that with you guys, you know, Me do my little sketchy things you guys whip out your sketchbook. Do your little sketchy things. It’s a fun time. I am using reference images from pexels.com Pexels? Yeah, that’s how you say it. That’s not sponsored. By the way. It’s just where I go to get royalty-free reference photos. If I need a model or something. Wow, this is looking really bad. My Anatomy is really rusty right now. So forgive me. We’re gonna struggle through this together though. I really want to improve my anatomy and the flow of my pieces because well, first of all, I took quite a long break from drawing people. I think sometimes the whole use-it-or-lose-it thing is pretty applicable for art. I think I lost some of what I used to be able to do. So we’re just gonna practice things. You know, whoa, whoa [laughs nervously] Good thing we have an eraser! Just gonna redo that hand. I went through this phase with which I didn’t want to draw people for a while but now I’m like, hey guys, Let’s draw people again. [Laughs] Except that some of my skills have waned a little bit and I think it’s good to tell you guys that, you know just because I do YouTube, does not mean my art is perfect. I struggle. Oh, this little hand. I’m happy with the hand though. Her head is like what, what is going on here? We will take care of that later. So the picture I am using is this girl who is holding an umbrella. She kind of actually looks like so craftastic if you’ve ever watched her channel. She is so kind and she’s really pretty. Okay, let’s see. How do I want to draw this part of the body? I think I’m gonna alter this picture a little bit. I just need a little bit of the pose here. So that I know how to do the hands but I think we’re gonna change the face and stuff his hand here, we got to do this hand. I guess I’m gonna make it a little cartoony. I don’t know. I don’t really know what mood I’m in. Just feeling experimental guys. Do you guys ever do that? Open your sketchbook and you just start drawing with zero plan? I think sometimes those are my best sketching times. Very little expectation is on me. So why not? I’m just gonna re-do that whole hand. This is how I struggle guys. I think I’m just gonna alter the hand and do what feels more right to me, because this isn’t looking the greatest. [Laughs] Okay, her head is having some issues so we’ll take care of that. Yeah, let’s get a face on this. I’m actually gonna shock to that there is no face on this. Ah, decapitated. I can make some plants growing out of that. I think if we give her a softer chin, make her head go like this, that’ll be better, right? Right! I don’t know what we’re gonna do for the hair. So let’s just leave that for a second. Maybe make her smile some more, because, in the picture, she just looks curious. I haven’t decided what medium I want to use for this picture either. That’ll be fun deciding. Oh, no, I don’t like those lips. I erase so much in my sketchbook, but that’s okay. You know, I think I might actually do this little pout thing. Let’s see, get this nose going. Oh, we could do a little button nose. Some big eyelashes. We’re gonna cartoonify this now. Start altering some things. Oh yeah, eyebrows! This is really actually therapeutic for me because I’ve been a little stressed over some YouTube videos that I’m trying to coordinate with other people or with things I want to do, but maybe they’re a little bigger. So I have to really plan for them. So it’s been a little rough lately. This is really nice. Okay, I want to give her a bob instead of the reference photo because I just think it looks so cool. Oh my goodness. Look at that wave going. Some big old thing. I don’t know if I’m gonna keep that. Oh, that’s obnoxious. [Laughs] Alright no, we won’t do that. Wave it like that. Oh, I like the movement on that. We could do one of those asymmetric cuts. Oh my word. Look at that and then it can – ooh, yes. Yes. Yes Yes to all that girl. We have that done. The umbrella is going up behind her. It might go off the page just a little bit, but that’s okay. Guys. I didn’t realize how much I just needed this. I have been really, really wanting to just sit down and sketch in my sketchbook. I’ve been travelling quite a bit lately, which no surprise there. I feel like that’s my life. Usually, I sketch a lot when I travel. Surprisingly I have not had a chance to do that the last couple times. It’s just been a lot more things happening. It feels good to get back into it my sketchbook. So I have a question of the day for you guys, since we’re on that topic. How often you guys sketch in your sketchbook or on a napkin or just anything like that? Let’s be realistic here, I know there’s that push that you should get every single day, but even me as a full-time artist, I don’t have time for that. I have to take a couple days a week just to market my artwork and stuff and scan my stuff and ship orders. So it’s a lot harder for me to be able to sketch every single day. So anyway, if you don’t sketch every day, don’t be down on yourself, I think that’s okay. I definitely don’t sketch every day. It’s alright. Should I do a bigger smile? Oh, I think maybe I should. Ooh, I should do like a flowy skirt on her, something flowier. The wind is blowing this way, right? Yes, we should do – Yeah, we could do her skirt is blowing in the wind. Good because I was really proud of that little curve I did on the back of her body. I like longer skirts. So that’s what she’s gonna wear because that’s what I usually wear. So yeah, okay. Let’s see. Her dress. I want it to – Man, I don’t know what I want the top to look like Maybe she can wear a sleeveless dress. Maybe she’s a bridesmaid or something, I don’t know. I was just a bridesmaid in a wedding. Actually, I was the matron of honor. Oh, that’s much better! Okay, what are we – how are we gonna shade this. Alright, I have these fineliners. I have some Posca pens. Dude, these fine liners are really good. I just got them in that Paletteful Packs box. That’s going in my art bag for sure. It would be kind of fun to do this with Posca pens. What do you think guys, should we do it? Should we? Maybe her skin tone in watercolor. [Gasps] Yes! I have some arteza watercolors that we can use. Let’s make a skin tone. This is more olive than I had hoped, but that’s okay. The Posca skin tone is okay, but I want her skin to be a little more muted because the Posca one is so saturated. Hopefully, this gives the effect that I want. By the way, I think I want to do a big coloring page bundle in my shop. So if you guys would like that and you’re interested, I would love to hear, I guess existing pieces that you would like turned into coloring pages or do you want me to surprise you with a bunch of new artwork that’s exclusively for coloring pages? Let me know because I think that’s gonna be launched in June or July. I would really, really love to do that soon. It’s been on my goal list for months, and I’m ready to do it. I just got to thinking about that because I was like, ooh, line art, that’ll be fun. What else should we do? While that’s drying, for her hair I kind of want a really exotic colour scheme. [Gasps] We should do purple guys. I’m down for that. Okay. I am so down for that.. I think dark purple and then we can lighten it up with these two colors. You see that? Eee! My goodness guys, this is gonna be fun. Yes. I think we picked a good shade. Hmm Experimenting with stuff is so fun. Dude. It is so windy here today, It is Thursday by the time you see this it’ll probably be Saturday. Let me know if you guys had a really windy week where you are because, dude! My trees outside are going on bonkers. if you want to know what sketchbook I’m using. I get this question a lot. It’s an illo sketchbook. It’s almost full guys a tour should be coming soon. I think you’ve seen a lot of the stuff in this sketchbook, but there are some gems that I have not shared. I’m excited to show you those ones. It might be half and half of seen versus things you haven’t seen yet. I’m excited to start a new sketchbook after this one. Just for a clean slate. I don’t know. I always look forward to that once I get to a certain point in my current sketchbook. If you’re sketching along with me, I want to know what you’re drawing. So you should tell me or just let me know what you’re doing along with me. Are you doing homework? Are you cleaning your house or are you procrastinating cleaning your house? or are you procrastinating on your homework? Oh, should I do purple eyes too? Uh, yes! I’m gonna block in color. Let’s do that. Okay, this is gonna be a dreary rainy day and she is gonna be this ray of sunshine. So I’m gonna do – Haha I just really wanted to obnoxiously shake that. I’m gonna do a dark blue background. You’ll see why soon, your lady’s got plans! Let’s start this. Oh, look at how saturated this blue is. This is turning into a legit piece up in here. I just wanted to practice anatomy. Ooh, I have another question for you guys. I like to touch on this topic at various points through the year because I know things change, I know the answer changes depending on what type of year. What type of year, on the time of year. I want to know what time frame of videos you like. I guess. Do you enjoy longer videos or do you enjoy shorter ones? I usually do videos that are between 15 to 18 minutes But the last couple videos I was like you know what, summers coming I’m gonna try to
shorten my videos a little bit. So I’ve been shooting for the 10 to 12 minute range It actually did really bad for me. Let me know what you prefer. What do you tend to click on? I mean I’m a binger. I really like the 20 to 30 minute videos personally. But I don’t know if I am that interesting. So that’s why today’s video is a little bit longer because I mean this is the time range that I would watch. I don’t know. I’m just having fun in today’s video though. Guys, I’m left-handed. I should have done this side first. So I wouldn’t – That left-handed struggle yo. Oh, you know, you know what, I’m gonna do a magic trick. You see this, you see this? Alright, it’s gonna be done in – [fingers click] Okay. I just colored in the blue background some more. It is currently drying, so we are going to do some highlights on the hair. See how that goes. Alrighty, we got this lighter purple. Oh girl. Wow. This is very much a different style than what I’m used to. This is fun. We’re gonna do a bright yellow umbrella. This will come together soon. I know it’s looking like a hot mess right now Y’all just gotta be patient Okay. I want this umbrella to be really colorful and maybe floral and bright because it’s gonna be raining around her. Which we will see you soon! Okay, do this. Gonna, it’s got a glowing edge to it. This is nice. Just trying to blend this a little bit, before it all dries. [Laughs] I’ve been really enjoying the whole Posca pen thing lately. It’s been trending on YouTube. I credit Kasey Golden for starting that. This piece is definitely giving me spring vibes because It has been very rainy here lately. Well, the last two days have actually been quite nice, but before that, we had quite a bit of rain. Let’s see. I want to do water droplets falling this way, along with the movement of her skirt. So I’m gonna start down here. We’re just gonna do a bunch of them. These big drops and then I’m gonna go in with another color and do some more. This really made things start to pop. I’m excited now. I like the idea of a pink dress, kind of fits the vibe here. She’s all bright and happy in this dark, gloomy rainstorm. Ooh. This one is running low. This is the one that I use to decorate a lot of my bubble mailers and stuff when people order from my shop. I love to decorate my mail and I love to do it with Posca pens If it’s a bubble mailer. If it’s an envelope or something I’ll just use stamps and doodle fun stuff. Oh my goodness, maybe it’s not running low. It just inked everywhere. Don’t soak through the paper, there’s a good sketch on the other side. Help, this is what I get for not going order in my sketchbook. Please don’t go through. I have not done a traditional video like. this, I guess in quite some time. I have been changing out my channel a little bit, and I’m trying to make it a point to show my face in pretty much every video. I think it’s important to relate with my viewers. Even if I’m just saying hi for a couple seconds, which I’m not doing in this video and it feels weird. I really like to connect with everybody for just even a second. Just talk about my art or what we’re about to do kind of thing. Feels really weird to just be doing this chill kind of thing. It also feels good. Brings back some old days. Memories. except I didn’t really do live videos like this in the old days. This is as close as I will get to a live stream. I don’t think I’m a live stream kind of person. I’m an introvert. YeaYour lady’s an introvert! Okay lip color, what should we do for that? Woo. I’m gonna say this neutrally light pink. I don’t know that might be too light. If it was raining this hard outside, I do not think I’d be standing outside with a dress and an umbrella. This is really fun guys. Thank you for requesting this video.I I think it was like the therapeutic thing that I didn’t know I needed right now. Now I’m just really happy. So we’re good. I should shade the face a little bit. I recently got theCaran D’ache colored pencils. I said in that video that I would keep using my prismacolor ‘s and I am because I still really like them. Give her some like sunkissed shoulders even though it’s raining because that makes sense. Obviously. Just touch something that has not dried yet. I have a cool idea for it. Where it’s a bunch of happy polka dots and stuff. I always like the polka dot, rainbow happy looking umbrellas outside Well, it is a new day, I kind of stopped filming cuz I had to go somewhere yesterday. Let’s start outlining stuff today. It’s all dry now. And then I’m gonna touch up some details. You know what, let’s add some fun colors to this umbrella. I think I want to do teal. Oh, yeah, I was gonna do a light yellow yesterday and here I am doing teal now. We can still do light yellow if we want. so I have actually been kind of struggling with feeling inspired lately. I’ve been pretty strapped for time lately. There’s been a lot of weddings and just other events that my husband and I have had to travel out of town for and every time life gets really busy like this. I’ve had to do smaller projects Because it’s really hard to do big projects when you’re that busy. It really really makes me want to do big projects. It ignites something within me. I really want to do art Lately, I’ve just really been wanting to do a lot of bigger pieces, bigger than this. I haven’t been able to. I am really, really excited for next week because I have set aside three days. Where I have plans, you know, I’m gonna make plans to not make plans and finally delve into some of these larger projects and what I mean by that is I do the creatures of peace acrylic paintings and stff like that. I really really want to delve back into that. Let me know down below how you cope with creating art on a busy schedule. What do you choose to do I guess? How do you manage your time constraints in your creative life? Do you just stop doing art or does it also make you just really want to create? Let me know in the comments. I just love chit chatting when I sketch. If I were to have a friend here right now, we would probably just be going back and forth about this stuff. Sorry, I have so many questions for you guys. That’s just how I roll when I sketch with people. It would probably be at a coffee shop though. I don’t actually know if I like the light yellow on this umbrella at all. Anyway, I’m just gonna keep this one minimal. So this is my game plan. Ooh, you know what? Let’s do some more highlights in the hair before we do what I was gonna mention. Some other dream projects I have. I really want to do some portraiture with my new color pencils that I did a video on recently. I’ve been loving them. By the way. I’ve had a couple comments asking me about them. They’re my dream pencils. It’s amazing. What we’re gonna do next is just outlining everything and bring it to life and then we’re gonna examine it afterwards and see what other things it might need. This is the fun stage to the piece because we’re gonna add a lot of contrast. There we go. Hey, is this teal dry? Yeah! There we go. That looks good. Her brows need some work. We’re gonna work that up Oh my goodness guys. She looks like a pig. I need to fix her nose. Ignore, ignore we gotta let that dry and then come back later to fix it. Oh. Man, this is why you experiment in your sketchbook cuz if things go wrong, It’s okay! I get so much anxiety doing the line art. It’s like kind of ridiculous. I don’t know if I’ve ever told you guys that before but like line art gives me so much anxiety. So right now. I’m just gonna do basic lines and then I’ll go in and change the thickness of a couple of them, just for funsies. Oh, by the way, guys, I just dispersed my patreon rewards. So, if you’re a patreon. You can go over there and get your digital prints and if you’re a premium patron you can go look on all my recent videos and your shout-out will probably be there in the description. I think it’s on the Instagram controls what I draw a video, I think I did the shoutouts on that one. Just thought I wouldn’t let you know. I recently did that. If you don’t support me on patreon, that is okay too. I do not expect that. I am just happy you support me here It’s something a little fun and extra that I do. It’s really fun doing this fineliner over the Posca pen because it doesn’t reactivate the Posca pen at all. The texture that the Posca pen leaves on the paper is really ideal for these fine liners. What are these called again? Fineliner Graphix by Marabu and I really like these. They’re one of the nicest fineliners I’ve ever used. Okay. As for some other stuff, I want to make her nose really rosy. Alright I decided to fix her face a little bit and give her more of a cheekbone, because I accidentally took it away earlier. It looks more dimensional now. I’m happy with that. She looks happy, too. Yay! Alrighty, thank you for watching my little Posca pen doodle. This sketch with me kind of thing. I hope you enjoyed it and I hope that you felt like you could sketch along If you do enjoy these longer Sketch with me sorts of videos. Let me know, Most of you on Instagram requested this. This is like what everybody was requesting. I would say over 50% of the requests that I asked about the other day were a sketch with me video. So yeah, it was really fun to just go back to my old roots and do a really simple video. I didn’t even do all my fun little camera angles on this video, because I just wanted to keep it simple and to the point. So hopefully you enjoyed this. Thank you for watching. I’ll see you soon in another video. Bye guys

    i love long videos bc i don’t do anything with my life but draw and so i like having background and your art is really nice uwu

  • Ellie Yialiades says:

    I like 30min and up videos. I love to draw well watching videos so if I have to change the video every 10 mins I will probably won’t watch it right away. At the moment I am playing fortnite because I have been drawing all day. I love your videos

  • keelz126 says:

    I think you should do a mix of old art & new for the coloring page bundle! A moth & some florals should definitely be included. Love this longer video! I don't have satellite/cable, so I watch YouTube as if it's TV. Plus, the longer the video, the less I have to worry about putting in a queue if I'm listening/watching whilst doing other things. 😊

  • What would a lemu need a shirt for? says:

    I try to sketch as often as possible, but both mental and physical health often don't agree with me. So, I don't know, sometimes every day and then weeks of nothingness.
    Edit: I usually prefer longer videos, more content and less likely to feel like a rushed video

  • connie fagerheim says:

    Love all of your videos thasent mather how long but its Nice whit long videos

  • Sophia Sherwood says:

    I miss so much stuff on instagram! The iPad app is kinda sucky. 🙁 ….as for longer vids? Bring it on!

  • Azzu Paris says:

    I always enjoy your videos and yes, I love longer videos. I don't sketch every day either. Sometimes I don't have time or simply because I don't feel like doing it or… I have so many sketchbooks that I don't know which one to chose (is this a valid excuse? 😂😂). Thanks for sharing this video and I love your illustration 🙂

  • VauenFeder says:

    I love longer vids like this ♥ It would be nice if you could do thatmore often 🙂 Also I'm trying to draw as much as possible in my sketchbook but some weeks are so busy that I can't even draw a 10 min doodle ^^"""

  • Ashley Mcdole says:

    🤗I'm doing dishes and cooking while watching this video. 😁

  • Ashley Mcdole says:

    I love 20 to 30 minute videos

  • Mike Sevilla says:

    I like 20+ min videos but I kind of depends to on if I’m wanting to learn something, get ideas, or just bored

  • Susan Gruhlke says:

    Trying to fall asleep! 😳

  • Susan Gruhlke says:

    I like the longer videos when I’m at work. Shorter videos when I’m trying to fall asleep.

  • Catsandcamera says:

    Haha, I skipped forward to the colouring and for about a minute I thought this was a woman with dragon wings XD

  • squidsart says:

    I'm painting along! I'm painting on a hubcap and its so much fun and difficult at the same time🤣 I'm painting some Olms on it with plants and it looks all botanical😍

  • Hailey and Friends says:

    Yay posca!🙂😁
    I like the one painting you did with the glowing bean looking creatures if you are going to do a coloinrh page. I would really love surprise coloring pages. During the summer I want longer videos because I travel them A LOT!🤗🤗 I really love you Mira so much!

  • ALLJ Art says:

    Love these videos ! I have my sketchbook out and I am drawing mer-mice? lol Fun stuff! QOTD. I don't actually count how much I sketch in my sketchbook… I think maybe 2-5 times a week depending on what I am doing. Usually, it's pretty windy here but recently it has been calm! So weird. I can't wait for a sketchbook tour! They inspire me to get drawing in my own sketchbook. I enjoy longer ones…because I can just draw and watch loads, saves me trying to find more videos mid-drawing lol I don't mind shorter videos though. Just prefer longer. Your drawing turned out awesome Mira!

  • Alex Santiago says:

    The wind here in Norway is extreme too😓🥶
    I’m doing 5d diamond painting while watching your video today😊
    I like all type of video length, but I actually like long videos best❤️ I would love to see more “sketch with me” videos and more Posca pen videos😊 (I’m gonna buy Posca pens now in the weekend😁 all of the ones I have found❤️)
    Maybe you could try out “Create this book 2” by Moriah Elizabeth??

  • Hailey and Friends says:

    Who hooooooo! I’m so happy you posted! Just what I needed

  • SmallPaws Collie says:

    whenever I buy posca pens they come out lumpy on the page. I've brought them from different places, and used them in different sketchbooks but they all suck

  • Creative Wicke says:

    When I'm very busy with school and stuff like that I still always have those 20mins in the bus to school where I'm abled to just take out my sketchbook and doodle away or just draw what's on my mind right now. So I keep drawing every day but it also doesn't take any time in my day that I would do something productive otherwise 🙂
    Hope I could help you. Lover your videos btw <3

  • Emily Parris says:

    I really enjoyed sketching along with you today. Thank you for continuing to inspire me 💕

  • life with b says:

    HI GIRL CAN YOU DO A QNA THING

  • Renée Dixon says:

    I was working on a landscape painting with acrylics in the dining room but now I'm in the office on the computer watching you while I eat my lunch. It's too dark in here to draw along and I can't move my desktop computer to the dining room and I don't own a laptop or tablet. So I can't really draw along with you. ☹

  • Renée Dixon says:

    It's not the length of the video that matters. It's the content.

  • Wolf koala says:

    You should do a mix of existing art and exclusive line art for the coloring book

  • Padrianna Hawthorne says:

    I'm drawing a pic for mermay and please do longer videos i love the whole thought process
    And lefties are the besties👌

  • Renée Dixon says:

    I'm on disability and I'm home all day. I have all day to create art but I don't. I get tired very easily and I'm rarely inspired.

  • Poppy Marleau says:

    I usually just do stuff on some single sheet watercolour paper, but I've been trying to get back into my sketchbook.

  • Poppy Marleau says:

    Also, how do the posca pen's react with the watercolour paper, I've been pondering getting some, but pretty much only have watercolour paper.

  • Valerie Zahn says:

    Longer videos please. I’m drawing a field of flowers while i watch this!

  • Heather Bryant says:

    I was drawing with you, a woman laying down in water. Longer videos and I can not draw everyday which gives me more inspiration for when I do!

  • Lisa Janine says:

    longer the better! also, I'm drawing cats. tons of cats from pixabay.

  • mjpete27 says:

    Mira, Your such an engaging person and truly talented! If we do not use our skills the do deteriorate You do not seem that rusty but we are our own worst critic's! Thanks for sharing and I do not sketch enough! I did just get a prompt book sketchbook made for me but i am not doing it everyday! Shame on me! but it takes TIME! I do not know how YouTube artists get any artwork done! besides filming looks like a full time job too! Thanks for all you do and share with us! Whatever you wish to share would be special! I like videos in the 20 min range, 8 min is to short and if a video is 45 or longer I usually break those up into more than one viewing session. Have a wonderful day!

  • Tiffany Boncek says:

    I flew weeks ago I had my daughter draw random scribbles in my sketchbook and now ill going to try and see a picture in them plus my 3 yr old scribbled in it well cuz she is 3 and wanted to draw with me so I'm going to try and see something them too for an exercise in surrealism to help get to my subconscious

  • Vic ;p says:

    I had a chorus event and the teacher looked and acted a LOT like you!

  • BJW says:

    Thanks so much for my patreon rewards. That eye was fantastic. Even on my large PC screen your artistry was faultless. 😊💙💚💛💜💖

  • Aurora's Art World says:

    Love how that turned out! So bright and cheerful! I often wish I had someone to talk to while doing art as well. Haven't been able to do much lately due to pain but will be doing some cool stuff soon… Miss your face! 🤗

  • Scribble Fix says:

    This is pretty! I love the colours you used in this!

  • Nurse Nicky is Learning to Draw says:

    I loved the bold colors.

  • Yogi Tiger says:

    Your drawing is so cute! Reminds me of the girl on the salt container. Might get these markers.

  • Michelle Petrovich says:

    I don’t care how long a video is. If I thing it’s something that is interesting. I click on it and I watch it. This one was great.

  • ElizabethGronlund& GachaGurl says:

    it"s real windy here right now and the trees are losing their seeds so it looks like it"s snowing. Looks pretty cool but I know every one of those seeds are going to sprout and it"ll get ugly real fast cuz those trees are awful.

  • The Tired Artist says:

    I'm doing my homework that I procrastinated on 🤦‍♀️🧟‍♀️

  • I AM DEE DEE CRAFTS says:

    I love love Long videos… That's how you learn….

  • ValasaFantastic says:

    I pick length of video based on the time I have and what I'm doing. So it varies day by day. Often longer and with lots of narration when I'm doing chores or artwork while half watching but fully listening. When I have a length of time to spend I quickly search for an appropriate length video. I think your audience may have "gotten used too" a certain length video if you have done a similar length too often. This may have boxed you in a bit. Personally I like the freedom to make a video the length it feels best at without overthinking it. Fun video thanks.

  • Munchy Hedgehog says:

    I'm drawing a mermaid for mermay

  • Bermilee says:

    I sketched along! It was fun, I like the long videos

  • Sanyukta’sPuddingPanda says:

    Love the rain drops ☔️

  • Creatively Revived says:

    I always try to sketch every day but it usually ends up being every other day or at least a few times a week if I'm going through a dry spell. I don't usually pay attention to the time on videos, I just never want to miss a video from anyone i'm subscribed to. When the pink Posca pen inked all I could think of was "uh! guys you made me ink!" lol! I've been feeling the same way, I want to create larger pieces but with no time on my hands to do it. I'm needing to set aside some time as well to just sit and get them started.

    I love these sketchbook videos you create 😍👍😊 and yay you are using Posca pens!!! My very first set of 4 are winging their way to me and I can't wait to try them too. I love the colors of pink and the pens are in 3 shades with a white 😍

    I like that you also admit to though being a YouTube artist you like the rest of us are still learning 😊👍

    Questions of the day answer:
    I'd say I do sketch something most days 😍

    Time frame of videos I prefer long ones like this one of yours cos I like your channel 😍

    Super lovely video 👍 😊

    I'm working on slices of citrus fruits in my Pink Pig Sketchbook at the moment 😊

  • Elizabeth De Villiers says:

    I was painting a horn😄

  • Miranda Watson says:

    I like videos less than 10 minutes, but I still watch my favorite people when they have longer videos, but I end up doing a lot of fast-forwarding.

  • Trevor Westin says:

    I love long videos! I think about 45 minutes would be my limit but, depending on the content, I’d probably watch a feature length video too, haha. Especially from you and some of my other favorite artists. Thanks for this!

  • Mary Ellen Thompson says:

    Please don’t shorten your videos. I consider a long video in the forty-five minutes and up category. I don’t even bother watching them when they exceed an hour long. I enjoy watching you color.

    It’s Been very rainy in Tennessee

  • Rebecca Merav says:

    This is such a new type of artwork than you usually do and i love it!!!!

  • Leya * says:

    I love the colors❣ But the head is a little too big for the body.

  • zoi munc says:

    I sketch daily. I did a new years resolution to draw once at day. Even if it's a doodle! It's really helped me alot. Xxxx

  • K. says:

    I'm working on correcting the first draft of one of my academic papers while watching this video 🙂

  • Chilly Studios says:

    Oh, wow. I was just a bridesmaid yesterday! Posca pens look super fun. I'm gonna have to try some out sometime. I swatched a new watercolor palette with you. 🙂

  • Golden_Milly says:

    Personally…I like videos that are like 15 or 18 mins but whatever you feel comfortable with is fine 😊😊😊

  • limabean29 says:

    I prefer at least 10-12 min. videos, up to about 15 min. That's not just from you, by the way. There are just so many YTs that I love and want to support. I find that less than 10 leaves me wanting more, but more than 15 minutes gets to be too much. If everyone I watch goes over that, I then have to start choosing what to skip. That's just me, though. I obviously don't expect anyone to time their videos for me. I'm only mentioning it since you asked. 🙂

  • Syed Adnan Ali Shah says:

    Do not try to copy draw wiff waffles stuff

  • AndraMarie says:

    I enjoyed this video! I was crocheting while watching it.
    It hasn't been windy here but it was raining and snowing all week long.

  • kyra sauder says:

    I sketch for 6 minutes every day

  • Manuela Freitas says:

    I don't manage my time. I usually feel more inspired during the night. So I don't sleep so I can sketch and paint.

  • Fire Lioness says:

    Plsss draw live

  • Fire Lioness says:

    Btw I LOVE seeing you sketch and just developing ideas as they come naturally and beautifully so calming for me too. Btw I sketch when I have any amount of free time left over and make tiny goals for each one

  • Those cookies says:

    I actually sketch every day! Even if I don't have much time, I always manage to sketch even if it's just for 10 mins on some days. But most of the time I sketch a lot throughout the day because it helps me to calm down a bit and be less stressed.

  • Mayumi //Natalie says:

    i love long videos so i can sketch along and have more of my fav. youtubers 🙂 and i know the left hand struggle 🙁 so hard inking stuff

  • Amy Sue West says:

    I am laying here in fibro pain…it's life, no feeling bad. I do not sketch in my sketchbook everyday. Maybe once or twice a week. I love longer videos. I feel that you or whoever it is, is more relaxed and not forced. I get to see a piece come together in a more cohesive, smooth way. Just my opinion. 🙂 I usually do my art in pieces if I'm distracted or pulled away. I think about my project a lot when I'm pulled away from it though. Great video. Hope you remember the questions you were asking that I was responding to. If not, this is going to be a strange comment. 🙂

  • Ashley Kalan says:

    While watching this I was eating peanut butter and avoiding going to bed

  • PoemsByBow says:

    I like the longer videos but I also like seeing your face! This piece was beautiful

  • Nina Letenayova says:

    I should be learning but colouring with posca pens is so satisfying 😂 can't stop watching

  • Annick Nicky says:

    I'm getting sleepy while watching this. Not because it is boring, this video is just calming me down.. Watching, listening. Just relaxing and getting sleepy😴

  • M.D. Campbell says:

    I've resigned to just shutting down video production when my neighbor starts with the noise. Living in rural MA, it's not uncommon for ATVs, dirt bikes, or muscle cars to rumble outside my door. Not fun when trying to do a voiceover! lol! Really like the background on this – very graphic. Nice work, as always! Cheers! 🙂

  • Daphne Hemelaar says:

    i am working on a spread in my bullet journal while watching this. I acctually enjoy longer video's, but for my regulars i basicly watch everything 😀

  • Anne Loder says:

    I just got done doing 8 zentangle 8×10 pictures I didnt take pictures drats. I just got for mother's day 100.00 for art supplies. Dont know what I'm going to buy

  • Share the Love says:

    Hey Mira I have a request….
    Could you do a drawing of a character drawn a lego style if so thanks.
    😊😊😊

  • Kiera Jo says:

    If I'm not participating in some kind of challenge with daily prompts, I think I sketch about two days a week. When I am doing a challenge (especially if there are prompts for each day), I usually sketch five to seven days a week!

    Glad you played with Posca pens in this video–I have some that I love using in my sketchbook, but I really should use them more. 🙂

    I watch art (and makeup) videos while I am at work. I work in an office, and some of the tasks I work on during the day are repetitive and kind of "auto pilot" type things, so I have YouTube up on my second monitor when I'm doing that kind of stuff. Currently comparing a list of parts to a technical drawing to make sure everything matches up (it's the same type of demand on my attention and mind power as doing a word search), and it's fun to hear your commentary and thoughts in my headphones. Just paused my work for a minute to leave you a comment. 🙂

    I agree that showing your face is important–there are a few artists I follow who I cannot picture because I only ever hear their voice or see their hands! (I also make art/creativity-related videos, and I try to show my face at least once in each video, too.)

  • Deborah Pires says:

    Hi Mira,
    I'm looking for a sketchbook for alcool marker, do you have a suggestion for me ?

  • Madelyn Walsh says:

    i sketch once or twice a week

  • Marlou Hanekamp says:

    I sketched along!! I made myself😂😍❤

  • Jessica Lesher says:

    Longer videos is what I go for if it's short I tend to not click bc I dont want to change the video every 10 min it's annoying lol but I love all your vids haven't come across one I dont like but always wish they were longer!

  • Grace Horton says:

    I’m drawing a waterfall that I have previously painted because I’m young and new to art so I’m trying to find a good medium. Do any of you have any ideas for what to draw or paint or any good mediums to try? Thx!

  • Pastel says:

    I sketch all day. Even at school
