This cartoon line drawing of drawing the bricklayer video’s below. Was scanned then traced over with sketch book pro 6. And was the first cartoon video I did for my cartoon U tube channel. And it also has one of my first voice tracks added. Sorry about that . Please be aware that when this audio and post was originally created. My speech therapy was not going well. But it was and still is legible to the listener.
Originally this Cartoon bricklayer image was created to be printed. On to a sublimated mug, for selling on my online store. First i drew the line art, which sadly I had forgot to film the original drawing due to my head injury and stroke which has really messed my memory up, short term memory really does sucks.
So I scanned the original drawing in to my computer and opened it in Sketch Book. From there I then created a new layer and lowered the opacity and traced over the original art making it better, and hopefully learning as i go.
I DON’T CONSIDER MY VIDEO’S as tutorials, just me showing how I do my cartoon drawing. A sort of learning, as I go approach. After getting the line art on to a layer in Sketchbook, and tracing hopefully a better version. Which is covered in video one below
2nd part of bricklayer
i then started coloring the image, again working in layers and using the brush tool varying the opacity, up and down when necessary. Until finally finishing the Cartoon Bricklayer image. It was then printed on a sublimation mug with a mug press.
the Sketch Book Pro software, i used to draw my digital cartoons. Can be purchased from
http://www.autodesk.com/ and take a look around their products. They even give you the opportuniy to try the software with a free trial.
And filming the cartoondrawing was created using my screen recorder pro. This is the link where I purchased the software to film my digital cartoons on my desk top.
I hope you enjoyed these short video’s on creating a cartoon bricklayer. and how I go about drawing my cartoons.
