  • - Today we are drawing characters in our own style

  • from the wheel. - From the wheel.

  • - Our iconic styles. - Random characters too.

  • - You spin a big wheel, see who we get.

  • - All right, Jackie, give it a spin.

  • - I will, I will, Kevin.

  • - This is very stressful.

  • 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.
