Favorite Art Supplies 🎨🌻 ( Drawing, Painting )



hey guys is coming and today I'm doing a video that a lot and you guys have been asking for lately I'm going to be showing you guys all of my favorite art supplies and I'm saying favorites and air quotes because I don't really know if these are my favorite well most of these things are just the supplies that I learned on so I don't know if you're allowed to call them your favorites if you really have an experiment that that much with different types of materials for doing the same thing and so since I haven't tried a bunch of different brands and seeing which one is the best I don't know if this is like a real favorite but I guess you can more see it as like a beginner thing because these are the supplies that I've been using since I was a beginner 4 years ago take all of these suggestions with a grain of salt is that even saying what does that even mean when I started making bigger art pieces when I was a freshman in high school these were the supplies that were handed to me by my art teacher and these are the supplies that I was supposed to buy so I've just been even member since I don't have any qualities with them I do like them so they're my favorites but I don't know so be your favorites these are just suggested I am also a believer in the fact that the best art supply you have is definitely the one that's closest to you or the one that's at your disposal if you want to make art you don't have to buy the specific thing you can still make incredible art with cheap supplies you could still make some kind of art with expensive supplies you can just make art with anything and I don't want any of you guys to go out and purchase all these items thinking that they're necessary and that they're going to make you better or more like this and more like that it doesn't really matter I believe it is always the artist behind the supplies that makes the art good I categorize my artwork into three categories prismacolor drawings paintings and watercolors just to make it easier to explain the supplies because most of the techniques that I use are pretty streamlined every finally one of those three types of pieces and so I'm going to be presenting all of these supplies with the artwork that I made with the supplies I hope that make sense I have all of my notes here I hope I don't forget anything let's get started the first type of artwork I make is prismacolor drawing and I think you guys probably seen this guy before he is the really large physical piece that I did my junior year and the senior now every single year I make something really intricate and really just meticulous with Prisma colors and for those of you don't know Prisma colors are these types of colored pencils and a lot of artists use that's what Prisma colors I think are really useful for is making a really really detailed really really sharp small things on a large scale that wasn't a well word assignment let's talk about it supplies that I use these are prisoner colors they are these color pencils that are very expensive and very I don't know they're nice quality this is a very large pack that my mother got for me on my birthday a few years ago they're expensive guys these guys they are I'm not going to lie to you guys they're expensive and they're a bit overkill but everything we are talking that I've been in has had these and so I learned on them so I bought them because there's no ones but I know how to do things to take note of is they are very waxy they're not like Crayolas or things like that they have a completely different texture they almost have a shine to them and what that does that makes it would be easy to blend so when you're doing skin tones or when you're doing really anything blending and getting that almost skin like realism is a lot easier if you're thinking about buying Prisma colors I was best metics with just buying them online because there are a lot cheaper online than in the stores I think this is the biggest I'm not sure but I think my mother got this on Amazon for like a hundred ish dollars I don't really know yeah their expenses reason why I used to enjoy so the reason I've always used them is because I just haven't found a good substitution for them it's not broke buying or fix it I'm sure there are other cheaper alternatives and I haven't done my research but if any of you guys have done your research please comment down below any substitutions for Krishna clothes that you may not because some other people might want to know it and I'd like to know it as well what I'm getting started with the big piece like this I usually start off with just a basic and full sketch with a basic counsel I don't use the fancy puzzle for those just as a pencil I'm not the type of person to gritted and my teacher taught me how to get things on to paper without gritting because she told me that much she went into art school everybody made fun of the people who were gritting which I doubt they do any more but she just was like Conan you need to learn how to draw horses without cruising and so I don't grid I draw most of my pigment colors on the type of paper name bristol board and bristol board is just a really thick and smooth paper so it's perfect for Prisma color because this prismacolor you draw really hard outside you and that way it doesn't mess up the texture and it just goes on really smoothly other than a basic pencil and Christmas colors is not really that many supplies that I used to make a similar drawing other than like an eraser but yes that's all I used to make this stink very heavy okay so the next type of artwork that I make is an acrylic mg this is pretty large for me to show you in frame that's me like this is just a basic acrylic painting I've done a lot of paintings with the same supplies and let's go to the type of paint that I knew is on time Spain that I always use are these liquitex basic whenever we first started learning how to paint in my high school art class I don't take light like professional lessons or anything I just have an art software we're allowed to just freelance paint whatever we want whenever we first we're going like the basics of how to mix colors and things like that the lettuce by the colors / cadmium red ultramarine blue and the cadmium yellow and these are the three colors that we were only ever allowed to use and they're still the colors that I only do you're able to make an entire painting with these three colors just by mixing them if you haven't learned color theory painting is hard to do which you have a Mac color series I just started painting about few years ago some film on Doc good at painting but I really like it it's very different from drawing because I just kind of like slap paint everywhere I limited on basics paint is very fixing and it dries shiny unlike a lot of those acrylic paints that come into little bottles it's not runny and it has a better hold to it so I find this a lot easier to paint with it because you have a little bit more control I have tried other brands of paint and I always just come back to this one because it's not extremely expensive it's not like wins winning and also it's pretty readily available I don't have any problems with it I've used this for two years now I like it the next I'm going to use a lot and I don't actually have whiskey is this thing main to acrylic matte medium basically what it is is it's this clear stuff I guess you could almost be comparable to like clear nail polish it kind of hard to explain what it does that water's down paint that way it dried slower and you can put thin layers of color over certain areas for tones and things like that it is super super useful if you know how to use it I think a bottle of it somewhere around like 20 bucks so but it lasts forever and ever I use it a lot on a lot of my paintings and for some reason people always think that my paintings are done in oil and I think it's because I use acrylic matte medium that makes it look like oil paintings you're able to get those very precise homes without having to mix a completely new colors I paint all of my paintings on this material named masonite board you can get a huge huge piece of it at Home Depot for like 6 bucks or something and then they'll cut it up for you I've painted everything one of my paintings on masonite board I've never painted on canvas before I'm sure it's good I'm sure it's good to paint on canvas because a lot of people paint on campus I like masonite board because it's nice and solid and also if you're just experimenting with painting it's a cheat material that you can learn on you don't have to feel bad about it not really not good or something like that the last category of artworks that I can think of is my watercolor this kind of covers a lot of stuff I've never painted a large-scale watercolor painting they're usually just swivel things like this but I really do love watercolor and it's what I first started on even like before drawing even it was just watercolor because it's fun and it's messy and you just get to do whatever you want the types of watercolor that I've used are these Greeks watercolors and though the ones into again same story these are just the ones that I've found at most stores and they're just cheap and they're readily available and they have a lot of colors I guarantee there are better watercolors in reason I have used better watercolors in their meat and I've loved them but research is always there and I always end up using it the reason why I like the tubed watercolor contrary to that was in the works contrary to a palette is because I feel like this dries shinier and it doesn't have those little ducks or chalk particles and that's why I like this more there's only ever chalk particles if this palette is really really cheap but this Rives are pretty cheap in comparison to a hundred watercolors I think it's pretty good feel and you can find them everywhere paper wise I paint on whatever I never have a certain type of paper that I always use it depends on the painting and what type of surface I want what kind of grain I want if some of my page you'll see this kind of inking done and I do all of that meeting with micron pen I like my contents because they're really sharp they usually don't believe paper they have so many sizes and I can just trust them I have used other ones before and I always do come back to these I can say that my crumbs are definitely my favorite they just give such a clean lines they don't like spread if they're just good I like my mom next thing that I knew for a lot of things including drawings and paintings and watercolor paintings is a white gel pen white gel pens are super super useful if you don't have one I would suggest getting one this is by this brand jelly roll and this is the one that I've used for like a few years now it's just white paint and basically and it's really really useful because when you're trying to get little highlights and little like sparkles and things like that this is what you want this is incredibly useful and I always suggest it all of my brush wise I never have a particular brush brand or brush type that I use I use whatever brush is near me I find that in general I like brushes that are pretty stiff and have a bounce back to them I don't like those little fluffy ones that don't really have much hold to it because I feel like I can't control what I'm eating with it so that is all of my favorite art supplies if these are even considered favorites because they're more just kind of like basic so stuff that I've always used I guess there's my favorite because I've used them for so long so yeah those are those of them in the comments below I'd love to know what kind of art supplies you guys use because I'm always looking for new art supplies I love art supplies I love going up Michaels and just walking through the aisles and so I'd love to hear what types of paints or pens or colored pencils you guys use because I'm a huge lover of art supplies I'd also love to hear your opinions on things that I've used because I'm sure everyone has different opinions and some more experienced artists out there since I've only been making art for about four years now probably have a little bit of better input so if you guys have better but I'd really love for you guys to put it in the comments below that way other people could read it and that way I can learn as well so that's it I love you guys so much I'll see you guys in a few days of the reigning video god bless and goodbye you

    I have mixed feelings about micron pens. Although I love their great quality, they do not last as long as many of my other fineliners.

    I haven’t personally used them but I’ve heard faber castelle pencils (might not be spelled correctly) are really good for more smooth small works. Just a suggestion πŸ™‚
