It's okay, Princess Peach. - It's cute, yeah. - All right, I can do Princess Peach. - All right! - Oh, boy. - Ah, man! - Ah, no, Princess Peach. All right. - Princess Peach. - Ooh, Elsa. - Ooh, Elsa. - Elsa. - Elsa. - Mario and you have Peach! - Oh, yeah! (laughs) - Oh, a cute couple. - Yes! (Jason laughs) Okay. - Do you watch "One-Punch Man"? - I do. - I've never seen "Frozen". - Just trust your gut and let it go. - Okay, let's do it. - I have not seen a lot of "Simpsons". I feel like I watched "Simpsons", but peripherally. - Are you a "Mario" fan? - Yes, I love "Mario" games. I love him, how about you? - "Mario Kart" all the way. - Okay, so I'm gonna actually try not looking at the reference because I want this to be a Brent original drawing. - I definitely want her to have a giant head. I wouldn't say that she didn't have a giant head, but I'm going big. But I think I'm gonna keep all her coloring the same. - She's got cute, big, blue hair. She looks like she's having a really good time, just being a mom. What does she do? Does she have a job? - She's a mom. - She's a stay-at-home mom? That's her thing? - Yeah. - Love that. Chase your bliss, Marge. - When I was a kid, I was addicted to the 90's era of comic books where everyone had unrealistic proportions. - As a cartoonist, I would say my style is pretty cartoony but based on solid illustrative construction, so I'm not doing a whole lot of exaggeration in terms of the proportions. - He is so iconic and perfect. He's a good blend of simple but incredibly memorable. He's got his red, white, and blue colors, his overalls, his adorable mustache, big nose, hat. His shapes are so good. (laughs) So I guess I'm just kinda making him a little cartoonier, like cuter, cartoonier. - How did I develop my style? I watched a lot of anime. - Really? - Just so much of it. - You would say it's anime influence? - Yeah, pretty much. I love anime, still do. - Are you gonna redesign Peach's dress in any way? - Yes. - Does Princess Peach have a sword or am I making that up? - It's in your style, Jason. - I'm gonna... - Do whatever you want. - Draw her with a sword. - Eleven. - Eleven minutes, okay. - That's quite not a lot of time, I feel like. But you know what? I believe in us. - I do believe in us. I'm moving onto inking. - Inking? - I'm inking. - Already? - Jackie, I notice when you ink, you use colored lines. - I do, that's one of my favorite things to do with lines. Just color them in. - Is that an animator thing? - I don't think so, I think that's something that I learned as a teenager and then I continue to do because I like the results of them. - Did you grow up drawing digitally? - Yes, I sure did. - Really? - Yeah, I'm not that great with traditional art. - Really? - Yeah, but I mean, I can do it, but not as good as I can do things digitally. - I rarely color my lines, because again, I come from the world of print. And so I'm always thinking about what is going to make the cleanest black line. - Yes, I respect that. I respect your artistic upbringing. I respect your need for speed. - Man, I don't... I feel like I don't have much of a style. Like, I feel like it's definitely 90's cartoon-inspired. They have a lot of construction in terms of shapes and form. But then I also like to throw in weird perspective things that don't make sense. - I can describe Kyra's style very well. It is very clean, it's amazing, - Thank you. - she has amazing arcs of motion. You always choose to keep things a bit, not monochromatic, but within one color. - Limited color palettes. - Limited, like a limited color palette, yeah. That's-- - The animation way. Zee's style, I am just getting familiar with today, even though I've known you for a while. (laughs) Because you never draw, but your style is adorable. It completely has that mascot appeal, like that adorable Japanese mascot appeal. - Who should he be punching? Maybe he's punching my Bugs Bunny. - (laughs) I was just about to say that and I'm happy you brought it up. - For people that have followed this series, they will know what I'm drawing and it's my disgusting attempt at a Bugs Bunny. - I would say if you really want to get into animation, just draw all the time. Just bring a sketchbook with you anywhere, watch YouTube videos. There's so many available resources to learn. You can look up anything and super specific, and just be like, "I wanna learn how to draw this, "or this style, or draw like this Disney animator," and you can just go find and they probably have classes online or their own website or blog or whatever that you can go look at. That's pretty amazing. - I should have done a lot simpler of a design, right? - You know what? - Because my style is complicated. - Just like you, as a person, you know? - Thank you. - You've got a lot of different feelings, a lot of different emotions, your art's gotta reflects who you are. - She's so cute. I like her 'cause she's a feminine woman, but she's not like, "Oh, I'm just gonna sit around "and wait for Mario to do everything for me," it's like, she will take things into her own hands if she has to. Like she can fight. - Yeah, that's true. She's a good role model. - Yeah. - So what is Princess Peach doing in your drawing? - She's holding a sword and her hair is just being really epic right now, so I'm having a lot of fun with that, just the lines on the hair. - I'm having fun beating up my own drawing. That's probably my favorite part of this. - Two more minutes? - Okay, well, I just feel like that's quite rude. - I forgot her crown. This is a travesty. - She's a princess. - All right. I'm satisfied. - I didn't give her any skin color. She's just gonna be snow white. - Done. - I think I did pretty darn good. Working off of a reference picture sure makes it a lot easier to concentrate on the drawing itself. - I think I did okay. I think she looks like She-Ra meets Princess Peach is what I drew. - It's a little wonky, but I think the energy of it is cute. - I think mine has Elsa vibes. I'm not totally happy with the pose. I would say I can do better. (fast guitar music) - You've got it, come on. - This is great. I love this. - I love this. - Here's what I love about yours. She's got a nice line of action. I love her smile. - Dude, this is wild. I love your, you've got this epic comic book perspective on all your drawings, like (beep) is coming at me. Dude, I'm feeling this-- dude, you've got her hair, which is sort of mimicking the motion of the flames. I feel her vengeance, you know? - I like that he's punching out your Bugs Bunny's tooth. (Brent laughs) The blood on this is great. - I think you really did reimagine him. Like it's clearly him, but then it's like... This is cool, I can see the Kyra in it with the clean lines but actually this is kinda different, I think, for you. I love it. - Thank you so much. - You did such a good job. - Yours is so adorable, I love the flow of her shape and I love that she's tiny. She's so cute, I think the colors stand out super well. - You got her smirk, you got her ice magic. Very pretty. You got her cute little cape, you got her cute little dress. Yeah, you did a good job. - This exercise was really hard 'cause it's like how do you improve upon characters that are the embodiment of perfection. Their designs are so iconic and so ingrained in our culture that it's really hard to try to come up with a different appealing interpretation of them. - And I think that's the most fun part of drawing fan art is that you can make your own interpretation on something you love as a little homage. Hey, what's up, I'm Jackie. - And I'm Kevin. - Today we're going to be drawing random characters in our own style. - From the wheel. - The wheel. - That's how drawing works. Every morning I come to work and I spin this wheel and that's what I do for the day. Whoa, it's so not dramatic. - Shrek! (both laugh) - Oh, no. - Wilma Flintstone, okay. - Oh, no, Wilma. (gasps) - Hey! - I'm already Tracer! - Linda? - Linda, ooh, the two... The two cartoon wives. - Yeah. - Oh, it's gonna be good 'ol Velma. - Velma. Okay, Velma from "Scooby-Doo". - Finn. - Finn. - Okay, let's get to it. - Okay, so I like their car that they drive, so I'm just have her driving the car. - I'm gonna do an action shot. - Mine is gonna be like "Fast and Furious" Wilma. - So, tell me about Tracer. - So, Tracer is like the poster girl for "Overwatch". Her thing is that she's fast, so she's pretty thin, she's petite, she has spiky, short, black hair. She has these cute little orange leggings. - So Velma is a nerd who solves mysteries. That's all you need to know about Velma. - Since Sunday, I was getting all self-conscious, like what's my style? How do I draw? (stuttering) Why am I here on Earth? What does this mean to be an artist? I don't know! I'm just gonna draw and that's gonna be my style. - I feel like I'm just gonna make it more like cartoony and angry, like this drawing is really gonna evoke, "Get out of my swamp!" - I loved watching "Bob's Burgers" when I watched it. I haven't seen it in a while, though. - Yeah, it's still going, right? - Yeah, it's a great, great show. It's so undercover funny.
