My YouTube Speed Drawing Video

Today I uploaded a new video to YouTube that I call "The 10 Minute/1 Minute/10Second Challenge." In it I draw the same character three times, using a stopwatch to keep myself within the three different time limits.

Thanks so much for your support! ^ _ ^

I always felt that even seasoned artists can't pump out masterpieces in a snap like magic. Great art does take time :)

It looks fun to do, I might try it out. I also like to use numbers as a base to my warm up drawings.

Jeez, it takes me a lot longer to draw just about anything, but it only takes you 10 seconds to draw the sketch on the far right?

Oh goodness! Its so good to see Gax again!! I just had such a nostalgia trip :) Thank you so much for that and all your Akiko stories Mark!

What IS Gax? I never read the Akiko books... I've only read Miki Falls and Brody's Ghost. Now I have to buy Akiko.
Cynthetic-art's avatar
Gax is a little robot and companion to Space adventurer/smuggler/pirate Spuckler. Ah man, the memories.
The series may be hard to find I believe he said they are out of print. it was from the 90's. But they're great!

Thanks! I guess I'll have to start searching...

Watching that video was great entertainment! I felt the tention and in the same time was laughing like while watching some comedy show :D Anyway, really good idea, it allows the artist to know their abilities in extremal conditions! :)

I remember reading those books as a kid. Good times, good times. . .

and that's why you're one of my biggest inspirations to keep drawing!

stay awesome Mark!

I have a couple friends who've been fans of yours for a good while, who have your drawing books, watch your videos, etc. They got me to read Brody's Ghost a while ago and I really liked it, which is why I have you watched on DA, but I never actually watched any of your videos before now (as I sufficiently lack in artistic talent).

Now I have. And it was fantastic. Awesome job, and quite entertaining.

Great job, love how the 10min version outmatches most of my 1-2h pencil drawings ,_,

That looks SO awesome- gonna watch it right now!
BTW, can you do another marker tutorial? I wanna see how to make my art look more fancy- like a professional! (notice i didn't say "Real manga-artist, because I already consider myself to be one!!w00t! )
