Doodle Gems How to Draw Sapphire ep 18



This Doodle gem was a request from a couple folks and was on my list to get done in the next few weeks. I had a very specific request for a Sapphire that I had to fulfil immediately! One of our community members lost her grandson and his birthstone was Sapphire. Many hugs and peace to her family.



So here it is. A very easy sapphire with some simple indications of  faceting. This is a much more impressionistic NOT  hyper realistic version.



The most important things you need to be successful with any of my doodle gems projects are the willingness to learn and to be easy on yourself as you are learning. We tend to be our worst critics and we need to learn to be kind to ourselves.



I love the community that we are building here. We are caring and supportive of all levels of crafters, makers and Artists.



We have a great group on Facebook Come and join us!



Materials:

Smooth Cardstock- I used Neenah Solar White 110lb Cardstock

Signo Uniball UM-153 White Ink

Sakura Pigma Micron 08 Black Ink



Prismacolor Colored Pencils:

Doodle Gem Episode 11 How to Draw Ammolite

Hello and Welcome!

This is Episode 11 of Doodle Gems--Ammolite. 

I had so much fun with this doodle gem. I love how the colors shift and overlap. The variations in these gems are endless and no 2 will ever be exactly alike.

Ammolite is an opal-like organic gemstone found along the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains of North America.90% of all Ammolite is mined in Canada. A very small percentage is being mined in Utah.  It is made of the fossilized shells of ammonites

This realtime tutorial shows exactly the steps I used to make the doodlegem in the thumbnail photo above. It takes time, but it is not hard and doesn't require any expensive pencils to accomplish! I used all Crayola for the colors and one White Prismacolor Premier Pencil. Come along and try this gem out! I think you will have a lot of fun.

Materials I used:
Neenah Card Stock 110LB (bright white)
Crayola Color Pencils-
Mahogany
Yellow Orange
Golden Yellow
Lime Green
Yellow Green
Jade Green
Aqua Green
Green Blue
Turquoise
Cerulean
Navy Blue
Brown
Dark Brown
Black
Prismacolor
White PC 938
Sakura Pigma Micron 01 Black ink 
Uniball Signo UM-153 White Gel ink for the Highlights

Doodle Gems Episode 10 How to draw Turquoise



By Popular request here's my how to draw turquoise doodle gems video!

I hope you enjoy the show.



I really appreciate it when folks let me know they were here. Please leave me a comment and tell me your favorite stone or gem. You never know when it will be on my Doodle Gems Series!

Turquoise stones come in such an amazing variety of colors--you'll find one you love just by doing a Google Image Search for Turquoise Stones.

The first drawing that I show of the Turquoise was done using Micador Color Rush pencils from Australia (not available in the US as far as I can tell)  I won them in a drawing from Peta Hewitt La-Artistino -https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC319W9__DFTzcLYSyPBGlTw

Peta is an amazing colorist and I have been learning lots about color pencil coloring from her many videos!

The gem  drawn in this video is done with Prismacolor Color pencils, Sakura Pigma Micron 01 and a Uniball Signo White Gel Pen. The Paper I'm drawing on is Neenah White 110 lb card stock, with a nice smooth surface.

In the Video I show a color Swatch Card that I made with BOTH Prismacolor and Crayola Pencils.

Here's the list of both kinds of pencils. I hope you find this helpful!

PC 938 White
PC 910 True Green
PC 912 Apple Green
