This new multiple video setting is awesome! It'll definitely make breaking down drawing videos easier! πŸ’ƒβœπŸΌ I used Prismacolor premier colored pencils and Prismacolor brush tip markers on Canson color line paper for this drawing. I always start with the face, blending my way out from the eyes in soft layers until my values are built up and the colored pencil is smooth. For the hair my trick is to lay down the darkest value with marker so my highlights lay effortlessly on top, then I go back on top with black colored pencil to section out strands and finish the hair texture. To add the final highlights and tiny frizzy hairs I spray a nice layer of final matte spray fixative between layers. After the fixative is dry I can go back on top to add those final details without a problem! πŸ’– Also, on a side note. Some really exciting stuff is potentially in the works with Prismacolor and I'm beyond excited!! I can't wait until I can share! β€πŸ’•πŸ™Š

Hi guys! First off I'm happy to finally announce the winners of my giveaway! Wohooo!! πŸ’ƒI picked at random because it would be impossible to choose otherwise. After reading through all the posts I was completely overwhelmed by the amount of people who not only entered but also how extremely supportive and kind everyone was. β€πŸ’• I'm so happy to be a part of this amazing artistic community filled with so much love and creativity.
So here it is!! 1️⃣st place! @milenadrawws
2️⃣nd place! @vasquejeff
3️⃣rd place! @artistiqfreak

DM me your addresses so I can get the goodies to you! πŸ’–πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ Also, this is a video of an oil rub drawing I did of my beautiful grandmother when she was around my age. I used very cheap oil paint that I rubbed into Strathmore Bristol smooth paper. I started with Q-tips to apply the oil in smaller areas and then rubbed it out with paper towels. I did this until the pigment wouldn't come up when I touched the paper. You can also go in with a kneaded eraser to pick up excess oil or to erase out highlights. After everything had a nice oil rub base I went in with colored pencils the next day for details! The benefits of using an oil rub base is a workable toned surface, ability to erase out highlights and being able to mix your own base colors. I'll have to do a full tutorial on YouTube!
I hope you all have an amazing week! πŸ˜˜πŸ’–πŸ™Š

Going to extend the giveaway until this Sunday! I'm out of town and decided it would be best to pick the winners and get the prizes to everyone when I'm home! Don't miss your chance to enter! (See last post for giveaway details)πŸ’–β˜Ί
Also since I've been in the mountains and snow this week I thought this winter girl WIP would be the perfect picture for this post. β„οΈπŸŒ¨πŸ’™

Thought it was time to do another giveaway!! You guys are so awesome I honestly wish I had enough money to give you all something! It's hard for me to find a way to really say thank you, but I guess some free prints and phone cases will have to do! First place will win a large gallery quality art print AND a phone case, second place will win a large gallery quality art print and third place will win three quality art cards. All you have to do is repost the drawing you'd like a print of and tag @morgandavidson and #mdartgiveaway I'll announce the winners one week from today! πŸ’–Thanks again for all of your support!

I have a long way to go on this one until I like it, especially with her glowing makeup but it's a fun challenge! Colored pencil black light portrait work in progress I'm doing between commissions πŸ’–βœ¨

Well, after being all pumped about working on new drawings after all the private commissions I was working on my body decided to get really sick for a week πŸ˜ͺ BUT after antibiotics and rest I'm finally feeling better! Ready to start fresh and get all of these ideas out of my head and bring them to life on paper! I'm posting this throwback colored pencil drawing because it's the inspiration for the new pieces I'll be working on, full of luminous light and bright colors! β˜ΊπŸ’–

Throwback to my Summer Girl drawing while I'm working on a few commissions and starting a new drawing! πŸ’– I can't wait to post my new stuff! πŸ™ŠπŸ’•

So everyone who has followed my art from the start knows my passionate love for prismacolor and all of their products, but especially their colored pencils! Their products make my creative process so fluid, from their colored pencils and markers to their fixative.. every art tool I've tried has basically become a necessity in my day to day life as an illustrator. ✍🏼✨ After working with them my love and admiration has only grown more and more! It's one thing to be able to work on a commercial for prismacolor, but it's another thing for them to surprise you and send a Christmas present with all of their beautiful products! I'm seriously at a loss for words... what an absolutely AMAZING gift!!! πŸ˜±πŸ’– I don't even want to unpack anything it's all so beautiful!! 😍 I'll definitely post some fun pictures and videos featuring these pastels, pencils and fine tipped pens I've never had the chance to use until now! Thank you again @prismacolor for sending me all of this along with the heartfelt card, you guys are seriously the BEST!! ☺
Also, Happy New Year!!! Here's to 2017 being the most creative year yet! πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠπŸ’«

Fun colored pencil Christmas commission! ❀🐢 Off to Canada! 🎁 Also, I'll be uploading my glowing rose for prints and phone cases soon! #prismacolor

The Prismacolor commercial I had the pleasure to be a part of! β€οΈπŸ’–I was able to go color crazy and bring Sarah Herranz's coloring book line work to life, doing what I love the most.. drawing with my colored pencils! Also, it was very exciting being the hand model coloring on screen! Lol πŸ’…πŸΌπŸ’πŸΌ Creating this original artwork and being a part of shooting this commercial for prismacolor has been by far one of my favorite jobs to date. I was able to work with some truly amazing and creative people! #prismacolor #favoritepencils #love ✍🏻️✨ @prismacolor

Colored pencil glowing rose on black paper! πŸŒΉβœ¨πŸ’– The best way to get colors so bright on black paper is with prismacolor matte spray fixative. When the drawing gets built up I spray a layer on, let it dry, and go back on top with a brighter more vibrant colored pencil layer! ❀️

Winter is the best! I haven't put my face on here in almost a year so I guess it's past due haha β˜ΊοΈβ„οΈ Have any of you seen the prismacolor commercial I did on TV yet?? I'm so happy it's finally out! I should be able to post it on here soon so you all can see! Also back to the beetle studies tomorrow now that I'm back from my thanksgiving break ❀️ have a great week guys!! 😘
