Drawing of Mountain Mandala

This speed drawing video I created shows the making of my latest design “Mountain Mandala”!

After drawing the mandala I scanned and edited it using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop (not shown in the video).

I’ve started creating these videos to work on my recording and editing skills.  It’s also just a fun creative project to work on.

The video was recorded on my phone, which is funny because I tried using my old digital camera but it was worse quality than my bottom-of-the-line smartphone!  It’s crazy how quickly technology improves.

To position the phone above the drawing surface I used a flexible holding arm I bought  from Amazon.   To edit the video I used Adobe Premiere Pro.

Mountain Mandala has been uploaded to my various stores, check out some product samples below!  I think it looks pretty good on the black background actually.

  1. I feel like this is a basic question but I’ve seen a lot of drawing videos and I don’t understand something. It looks like the picture is already drawn and that you’re just tracing over it with a market. Is that what you’re doing? If so, why are you doing that? Why don’t you just show the finished picture? I feel like I’m missing something important because I don’t get it. Thanks for helping me to understand.

    1. Hi Cerene. It is true I sketched the design in pencil before I drew the finished piece with marker. I do that because with pen, the mistakes are much harder to fix. I often add more details in once I’ve traced over the pencil sketch. The videos are really just for fun, I thought it looked cool sped up like that, and apparently people like to watch other’s draw. Hope that makes some sense.
