This is a new kind of video I’m trying out: art! Over the holidays I got back into watercolours after several years or not painting at all so I’m practising by making these videos.

This is a painting I did of Vocaloid Hatsune Miku. I have just discovered the world of vocaloids and am quite intrigued by it. I’m not particularly happy with the resulting painting but it was great to practice on a new character. My knowledge of Miku and the other vocaloids is fairly limited at the moment but I’m looking forward to learning more!

Next painting video will be another blogging friend: Nessbow so look out for that one soon!

Hatsune Miku Speed Painting Instructions
Time for another speed painting video.
Today I was inspired by Vocaloid Hatsune Miku.
I have only just discovered the world of Vocaloids so I couldn’t help but be inspired to paint something.
The rest wasn’t one of my best pieces but it was a lot of fun to do.
Hope you enjoy.
The finished product!
First off I started with a sketch!
I transfered the sketch to the watercolour paper roughly.
Then filled in the details with a light yellow.
Next I started outlining in a bright green.
I find the idea of vocaloids really intriguing.
Computerised pop stars are such a fun idea.
I flooded the hair with a green wash.
The idea of live shows with them is very interesting too.
Then lightly washed over her clothes too.
Next was a wash on the skin.
After that I shaded the skin.
I added detail and fabric to the shirt using a darker black.
Black shadows on the clothes leaving a highlight.
The songs I’ve heard so far are really cute too.
Filling in even darker areas.
Very dark shadows on the clothes now.
Do you guys have a favorite vocaloid character?
Next was adding brighter green to the hair.
The designs are all so colourful which makes them fun to draw!
And all of the clothing detail.
Small details of the face next and light colour to the eyes.
Time to work on the background.
Big green spots everywhere.
Then slight shadow on them.
Then filling the rest with a yellow and green wash.
I’m still so out of practice with painting but doing this videos is motivating me.
Painting characters like this is fun practice.
Starting to come together!
Outlining everything in black now.
You could do this with pen too if you like.
I’m stocking up on cheap pens with all the back to school sales.
The hair was an area I wasn’t completely happy with.
It was a little too curved in the end.
Don’t forget if you have video suggestions let me know in the comments!
I love trying out new styles!
To give the background some more detail I added some black spots.
Lastly I added a couple of highlights in white.
A little blush and it’s done.
I had a lot of fun doing this so maybe I’ll start a vocaloid series.
So I hope you guys enjoyed!
It’s been fun learning old techniques again and I’m looking forward to improving again for next time.
Thanks for watching!
