The Prince and the Dressmaker | Defacing | Vlogmas

Hello, I’m Rogan and welcome to Vlogmas. Today is something that I’ve been wanting to do for a while. I follow a BookTuber, iLivieforbooks, and she will from time to time do defacings of her books. Drawing on them, decorating them, beautiful art on her books. I thought it seems like something fun to do with my books, and I’ll start with this book. Now, this book already has a scribble from a kid, because I bought this used, so… The book is The Prince and the Dressmaker. It’s one of my favorites. And here’s the kid’s scribble, I will use my defacing to cover that up.

So, for my process, because I’m one of those people who hates to start with physical because I don’t want to commit to anything. Like, what if I don’t like it? So I went ahead and took a picture of my copy’s cover, played around with it in Fresco, a drawing program. Played around with different ideas, until I found one that I liked, just today. I was drawing it, and yep I really like this. I want to do it. I’ll show you what that looks like. (Note: in the video, I hold up my iPad to show the digital version I drew.) I’m not showing you too much detail, because I want to transfer that to the physical thing. We’ll see how this goes. Enjoy!

[Montage: drawing in pencil, pulling out brush markers and selecting colors, starting with yellow-orange border around the characters then adding short curved lines in a repeating pattern, moving onto green leaves and purple flowers, and finishing with repeating straight green lines to fill in any remaining space.]

I’m done! I don’t have a lot of time because my battery’s dying and at the end of its life. So I’ll just show you a pan, and let me know what you think in the comments! I hope you enjoyed this.
