Professional Artist vs Amateur Artist: Who Will Win the Ultimate Art Challenge? 🎨

The eyes, nah, nick look at my eyes oh yeah, same thing. Nothing, you’re done, you know what, we’re done. Alright, what’s up guys, so we’re in a bit of a different location today. We’ve got a special video for you guys because I am in Vancouver, and I don’t really want to shoot like a normal YouTube video while I’m here. So, I’ve got my friend, get in here, I’m gonna cut all that. My name is Nick, I am his friend.

So a bit of a background, I am a professional artist, which I don’t like to call myself that. And Nick, what do you do?

I study neuroscience and I work in the hospital, yeah.

So, Nick is a huge brain and a receding hairline. So, what we’re going to do today, which I think is going to be really fun, is if we take these TikTok videos, TikTok art challenges, and we try to make a character for Nick. But, there’s a catch, okay? Because I only have one iPad.

No, you can’t avoid things.

What I think would be fun is if you draw on here for two minutes, based on the prompts in the TikTok video, and I take over for the next minute, and we will interchange back and forth. I like it.

Alright, now, there’s a lot of art involved. I like it, probably gonna be terrible, but we gotta have faith in our skills, guys. The gender is the opposite of your own. I’m a man, so that would be a woman. You’re a man, so we’re drawing a girl. Hair is short if you have siblings, and long if you don’t. I have no siblings, so natural hair color. If you want a dog, and both if you have both. I’ve only, if you don’t. Go with your favorite color. Eyes are your favorite color, and clothes match your phone case. Good luck. What is your favorite color?

I should say blue.

Blue, blue for sure. Let’s just, oh, black? I don’t know. Black is not a color. Is it like a tealish blue, or is it like a warm sky blue?

You see someone, I have no idea what you’re talking about.

Have you used the iPad before?

No, I have not.

Okay, so there are some things that I think you should know. This is obviously the pencil. You’re going to be drawing on the surface with the pencil. So if you draw something and you’re like, “Oh no, I made a mistake,” okay, what do you do?

You use two fingers, you tap on the screen, and that’s undo.

Well, that’s wild. Okay, and then if you’re like, “Oh, I didn’t mean to undo that, let me redo that.”

Redo?

Three fingers.

Well, that’s pretty neat.

So, Nick, you’re gonna do the honors. He’s got the iPad. We’re gonna start a timer. I’m gonna set it at two minutes. So the first prompt is “Girl.” You’re gonna draw a girl. Oh, that is, wow. You gotta make sure that her face is presentable. That’s an eye. There’s two of them. Oh, I like that you’re making our character happy. All right, so guys, notice how Nick is holding his pencil really, really far back. You generally want to be a little bit closer to the front if you want better control of your pencil. Hmm, don’t be like Nick.

Hey, this is judgment that I did not ask for.

Holy, that’s some giraffe. Nick, oh, you just had to. Oh, no.

Three, two, one, stop.

I don’t know how much I’m gonna be able to get done in one minute. Let’s just give me two minutes, too.

Okay, so two minutes on this. Now, Nick, there are some things that need fixing here. A lot. First is the neck. And now, what I want you to see is, look at the… What the… What about it? There’s this tool called Liquify. You can just push things. See this?

Well, we’re gonna push that neck up. I’m gonna get rid of some of these face lines. Okay, we’re gonna try to make her at least a little bit more human-like. You might need a little bit more volume on the hair for it to look like a person. Well, she’s been using some shampoo and conditioner. She’s got good… All right. The next thing, Nicholas, is the eyes. The eyes. Now, Nick, look at my eyes. Yeah, same thing. Nothing. So usually, what you get is a bit more curvature on the upper lid and a little bit less curvature on the bottom lip. Obviously, it’s gonna vary from person to person. Nicholas, look at me. You have about the same curvature on the top and the bottom. Oh, I don’t have time to add teeth. Usually, you don’t have to add teeth to your… because if you do, it’s gonna look… Oh, what in the SpongeBob? All right. This is a whole new drawing. Natural hair color, if you want a cat, natural hair color. If you want a dog, you have a cat, so you have to do an unnatural hair color, which is just basically any color that you want. Unnatural hair color. I’m going to start the timer in two minutes. I’m going to do a little bit of an ombré here. Oh, wow. You’re an ombré. Oh, it’s gonna be fancy. Oh. We forgot to give her ears. Okay, she doesn’t want to listen to this conversation. Anyways, considering we still have to stay unnatural, let’s just do some Ronald McDonald stuff here. Oh, look at that. Oh, okay. I like that. I like that. Oh, there’s your timer. You’re done. You know what? You’re done. All right. So the timer for me starts now. Okay. We’re going to give her a bit of a skull up top. You see, so you see the brain sits in the cranium. It does, yes. Do you know about the cranium? I do, yes. He knows about the cranium, guys. This has to be a little bit bigger because you can’t have somebody who has a shrunken cranium because then there’s Neanderthals. Exactly. Next time you draw somebody, he doesn’t have a cranium. Remember what Nick said while I’m here. I’m going to add a multiply layer and I’m going to add some shading. Okay, Nick, you probably have no idea what this is, but when you press lightly with this pen, it actually has a bit of a translucent kind of texture, right? Some of the colors underneath can actually come through. I do need to get rid of this though. It seems I’ve created more dark spots. Wow, Nick. It seems you have made a lot of splotches here. How do I get rid of these?

Actually, you know what? Maybe we can work that into the design. And you know also, because I use your words, Nick, use your words. Oh, what are you going to do, something creative, something a little off the script here. Oh, Ronald McDonald. This is actually nice. She’s like a cool McDonald’s worker. All right, we’re going to give her a necklace if I have time too. Oh, you’re going to give a neck, okay. That’s your timer. That’s your timer. You’re done. You know what? You’re done. The timer for two minutes now. You see the eyes look a little bit crazed because there’s no shading in the eyes. You see with the darker top section, the eyes look a little bit more realistic, right? And we can add, this is what’s called the highlight because the surface of your eyes are very shiny. This is, you get a highlighter. Oh, that looks nice. That looks nice. Just that little dot, right? It makes a big difference. All right, Nicholas, I think we’ve got to give her a skin tone because we are lacking in that department. So I’m going to add a layer. Oh, you know how to add layers now. I don’t, but I saw you do it. If you’re looking around, much better. Let me set my timer on for the skin, okay? Oh, I thought that’s where, that was our clothing. Oh, wow. You’re an ombré. Oh, it’s going to be fancy. Oh. We forgot to give her ears. Okay, she doesn’t want to listen to this conversation. Anyways, considering we still have to stay unnatural, let’s just do some Ronald McDonald stuff here. Oh, look at that. Oh, okay. I like that. I like that. Oh, there’s your timer. You’re done. You know what? You’re done. So the timer for me starts now. All right, we’re going to give her a bit of a skull up top. You see, so you see the brain sits in the cranium. It does, yes.

All right, we’re going to give her a necklace if I have time too. Oh, you’re going to give a neck, okay. That’s your timer. That’s your timer. You’re done. You know what? You’re done. The timer for two minutes now. You see the eyes look a little bit crazed because there’s no shading in the eyes. You see with the darker top section, the eyes look a little bit more realistic, right? And we can add, this is what’s called the highlight because the surface of your eyes are very shiny. This is, you get a highlighter. Oh, that looks nice. That looks nice. Just that little dot, right? It makes a big difference. All right, Nicholas, I think we’ve got to give her a skin tone because we are lacking in that department. So I’m going to add a layer. Oh, you know how to add layers now. I don’t, but I saw you do it. If you’re looking around, much better. Let me set my timer on for the skin, okay? Oh, I thought that’s where, that was our clothing. Oh, well. We see this, there’s a bit of a warmer variation in the mid section of the face. Because there’s a bit more flesh. Yeah, the flesh carries the blood. Am I right about that? You’re right about that. Blood vessels in the face. Now, I’m going to add a multiply. What does the multiply tool do? The multiply basically adds a layer that darkens what’s underneath. Though, it’s very good for shadows. She looks a little cross-eyed now that I’m looking at this closer. So, Nick, do you know how to draw a nose? I can do two lines in the shape of a right angle. Oh no, oh dear lord. That nostril, Nick. Oh yeah, I remember you taught me how to do warm tones about 10 seconds ago. So let’s, yes, okay, we’ll leave that. Everyone has their blemishes. Oh, not that much though. I’m failing to see. Nick, what are you, what you’re trying to do here? Now you see the issue here, Nick, is we’re looking at her head on. So when you look at me, how many nostrils do you see? I see two, exactly. You’ve drawn one nostril, okay, but when you look at me from the side, how many nostrils do you see? You see the one, exactly. So you’ve given her a profile view nose, but we’re looking at it from the front. That’s the problem. So I’m going to flatten them out. See, so we can add a dot to the tip. Now look at that, that’s a lot better. It locks, doesn’t it? We’re going to add a shadow to the bottom. Nick, you take over. I think the next thing that we got to cover is the clothing, which is going to be based on your phone case. And your phone case is black. Oh, it’s not really Nick, it’s translucent, see? When you press lightly with this pen, it actually has a bit of translucent kind of texture, right? Some of the colors underneath can actually come through. Do I need to get rid of this though? Oh, you know what? Maybe we can work that into the design. Okay, and you know also, because I use your words. Nick, use your words. What are you gonna do, something creative, something a little off the script here? Oh, oh, Ronald McDonald. This is actually nice. She’s like a cool McDonald’s worker. All right, we’re going to give her a necklace if I have time too. Oh, you’re going to give a neck, okay. That’s your timer. That’s your timer. You’re done. You know what? You’re done.

You have about the same curvature on the top and the bottom. Oh no. I don’t have time to add teeth, so usually you don’t have to add teeth to your because if you do this, it’s gonna look holy what in the SpongeBob. This is a whole new drawing. (gentle music)

  1. Nick: what do the 4 fingers do?
    My exact question when i first discovered undo and redo in Procreate. It basically hides the two hotbars or what they’re called

  2. Who anyone who needs it:
    Two fingers, tap: erase the most recent line
    Three fingers, tap: undo the two fingers thingy
    Two fingers, tap and hold: deletes faster (same with the three fingers)
    Four fingers, tap: hides all the tools (generally used for picture taking)
    Double tap on the Apple Pencil (flat part): changes between pencil and eraser (if you enabled it in settings)
    And that’s all I know so far!
