My first vlog! Let’s see if vlogging this way will work for me, or if I need to alternate between Driving Vlog’s, and, “talking at the camera and getting over my camera shyness”, vlogs.

The events that I will be at this month ( April ).

The final video in the Big Apple Ponycon anthro painting video series! Turn up the volume, and rock out with me!
There is a little bit of a tutorial in this towards the end, via annotations, explaining how I created the background effects, so check it out if you’re interested.

If you’ve been following my updates recently, you’ll know that I’ve been working on marker painting the Liberty, Cabbie, and Uncle Bowtie piece for Big Apple Ponycon, and creating speed painting videos of the process.

Welp, it’s all finished finally! And I decided to break out MORE than just the markers and colored pencils. The acrylic paints came out to play as well!

Liberty, Cabbie, and Uncle Bowtie were all painted with Prismacolor and Copic markers, and touched up with colored pencils.
The background, started using colored pencils, but because I’m in a bit of a pissed mood tonight, I decided to finish it off with watered down acrylic paints: black and a pearlizing medium. Sometimes emotion can help create interesting effects.


Liberty, Cabbie, and Uncle Bowtie all belong to BIG APPLE PONYCON.
Artwork is mine.

New video tomorrow! Part two of marker painting the, “Big Apple Ponycon: anthro mascots”, piece.

Also experimenting with certain aspects of Windows Movie Maker without it looking TOO obvious that that is what I’m using (it’s all I have for video editing. I only need something crazy simple, so it does the job AND it’s free!).

Lake Hopatcong Block Party 2014

Lake Hopatcong, and other Sussex County, NJ residents, will be happy to know that I will applying for a vendor / crafters table at the Lake Hopatcong Block Party, 5/10/2014. Should be an interesting experience!

Stop on by, buy shirts, prints, charms, stickers, place orders for commissions, including special size order shirts on designs that I might not have with me at the event. Or just stop by to say hi!

It’ll be held at Hopatcong State Park, in Landing, NJ, May 10, from 10am until 5pm. Bring your cameras, this park is BEAUTIFUL!


If I apply for an artist alley table at New York Comic Con this year, would anyone want to split a table with me? I plan on having new prints to sell this year, new artwork that is print worthy.

What would YOU all like to see from me? I will be planning an original piece, using my own characters, but what else would YOU all like to see from me?

I’ve been itching to upload edited versions of my Art Jam Livestream events to this account for some time now, and am finally getting serious about it.

So, for starters, let’s go with the latest marker painting Art Jam from 3/28/2014. Of course, it had to be sped up to fit within 15 minutes, but that’ll do for now.

In this video, I did the marker painting for another OC pony badge commission for K. Esposito, of his pony OC, Kreature. The second piece I’m working on this here, and will finish in the next video, is a gift art piece for Big Apple Ponycon ( https://www.bigappleponycon.com/ ), the anthro versions of the convention mascots, Liberty, Cabbie, and Uncle Bowtie.

I use a mix of Prismacolor and Copic markers, colored pencils, and a white gel pen on card stock for MOST of my marker paintings. If the original piece was inked with india ink and brush, then I will toss the inks onto a copy machine, print the copy to cardstock, and paint the copy. However, when marker painting over the original inks, I will use a Prismacolor brush marker to ink.

If you have any questions about my techniques, or would like to be completely awesome and donate the use of your music for the background, feel free to leave a comment below, or please feel free to contact me at wee_beebhs@yahoo,com, on Facebook at http://facebook.com/beehivestudios01, DeviantART: http://bee-chan.deviantart.com, or Twitter at bhstudios01.

Don’t forget to give this video a Like, and spread the love!
