Sketchbooking Demo: Blue Alien Female in Watercolor

Watch me draw, paint, and ink this colorful blue alien female portrait in my sketchbook!  Blue is my favorite color that's why you may see me use it a lot.  FOR EVERYTHING!  Seriously thinking I'll have myself a Blue Period like Picasso.  I mean why not?! 


Also, I don't always draw girls with short hair, but when I do, they have mohawks!  Haha!  Very inspired by Storm from X-Men's punk era. 


Anyway I have plenty of ideas to hash out for my cosmonaut series of illustrations, and I have yet to do an official cool-skinned alien!   So that may be coming up on the horizon.  I have yet another studio move to make in a few months.  Thankfully its a short distance to another apartment in my complex!  In the meantime I have started my  urban sketches of Mexico project, and I stay working in the sketchbook on the next big thing.  So here's a piece of that book of ideas, enjoy!


My list of materials for this video:

  • 2mm lead Prismacolor Turquoise mechanical pencil
  • Pigma Micron ink pen (sizes 02, 05)
  • GellyRoll Gel Ink Pen (various colors of Moonlight series)
  • Pentel Pocket Bush Pen
  • Pentel Aquabrush
  • Various watercolor paints including Daniel Smith, Holbein, and Van Gogh


As always please let me know if there is something you want to see me draw in detail!  These sketchbook videos are pretty small and easy to do, but I do plan on bringing you some video of finished paintings as well!  Its been a long time since I've attempted such a thing, but I think it would be a real treat!

About the Artist

 I would call myself a Jack of all Trades, but mostly because I'm interested in many areas of art if not all!  I graduated with a BFA in Fine Art from the University of North Texas with a focus on Watercolor.   I always had dreams of creative writing, and in 5th grade I wasn't too bad!  Art clearly won out for my attention, but writing will always have a place in my heart!

What better way to write, I say,  than to share a blog, and practice my second love while talking about my first! With that said, I hope you all enjoy my ramblings and please hit me up with any questions.  :D  Contact me!
