WHAT WOULD SHE LOOK LIKE? | Designing a Princess Character off my Favorite Holiday Treat | FASIMS


Today as I sit down to fill a sketchbook spread. I
thought we could try and draw a princess based off food Not just any food, but a specific “holiday treat” [Laughs] Peppermint bark. ♪ So basically what I’m planning on doing is designing a character princess off of peppermint bark So it limits our color palette and I think it’s gonna be a lot of fun. I just really really feel like drawing a giant, huge poufy princess dress. So let me just kind of lay out the size of that, where it might fit. Now I have to [Makes knife swoosh noises] [Laughs] Okay, we have our base shape and construction of the outfit and the character. Now
we need to add some pizzazz and make it more original. Specifically,
by taking inspiration from our peppermint bark. So let me see what kind of colors we have red for like the candy cane pieces. We have like a creamy white for the white chocolate. Could maybe go with like a light pink for that. Or maybe even a bit of a yellow. I’ll have to swatch these and then for the dark chocolate layer because there’s chocolate, white chocolate, peppermint pieces. I’ll go with some of these rich brown colors. So that’s kind of the color scheme we’re working with. We’ll see how the colors all look together and
then from there I should be able to pick the ones I want So now I have some of the colors down, I can take more inspiration from that. I kind of just want a little peppermint candy, you know, they’re like a circle, those little things. ♪ Boom look at that freaking circle. Let me, it looks like there’s two different kind of designs for
these peppermints, so I guess I’m gonna be drawing two and I’ll see which one I like best. So it looks
like one of them has more like a a wheel sort of texture. So it’s like a bunch of… Little red chunkies [Laughs] There you go, a little candy. The other one that I like better. So I’m probably gonna have going with is more swirly So the red it’s more red and white striped instead of white with like red blobs, right? [Laughs] So it like starts thicker on the ends and then it comes in and kind of like twists and gets tiny and then that goes all the way around and it doesn’t have to be perfect because it looks like each one is different because of the way it’s been swirled. ♪ Yeah, I think it’s just a little bit more fun. [Laughs] Probably gonna end up going with that one. I like that way better. I didn’t –
I never realized there were two different kinds of these Well now, you know. I think these are more what I’ve seen in real life, even though if someone asked me what they look like I would have described that. The brain is a strange thing. I also kind of want to draw some chocolate [Laughs] Just so I can get a feel for how the colors are gonna look Before we
start trying to implement these into some kind of design. It’s usually
kind of square at least the more factory made ones. Something like that. Let me lightly erase that. Add a little line art, and then we’ll pop in some color. I might have to do a couple of them if I have trouble… Getting the colors down. A little chocolate bar. It looks like a computer screen. Hopefully the color will fix that. We want to look rich and delicious. That’s really shiny. I just realized. Just looking at a picture of like a Hershey’s chocolate. It’s got a lot of like white highlights almost and definitely like really dark spots, too. So, move on to a darker one. Kind of make these look more deep. By filling them in. It looks more like chocolate than the peppermint does. I think the color is a little off It’s like too bright. I think it’s cuz I used that… Dark sun tan was too red. Whereas we want it to be a little bit more cool toned. Especially if we’re going for a dark chocolate. So, we could try but this can get ugly real fast. Let me try is just a neutral gray on top of this. Oh, yeah. Yeah. It’s pretty gross. Although
it does kind of give that chocolatey appearance because
it looks like chocolate kind of has a grey highlight to it oh, I don’t know! [Tutting] Add some highlights. I just started smelling chocolate. What the heck? [Laughs] I didn’t think it’d look that realistic. Just brainstorming here. Another thing that like… Chocolate’s usually kind of associated with is like the wrapper and the wrapper is silver. I wonder if that… Might
be something I want to incorporate into the design. I’m definitely brainstorming here. You kind of see how I’m jumping all over the place Just trying to get as many ideas down on paper before they like fly out of my head, and I don’t catch them because
I kind of want this character to be pretty well thought out I don’t
want it to be something that I’m just half attempting. I think it’s probably also important that I actually try to draw a little piece of peppermint bark Since
that is what the character is supposed to be kind of, you know, based off of here. Candy cane pieces. Oh, I could also draw candy cane. Wait, just put that there so don’t forget. [Short laugh] It’s all sorts of different peppermint sort of things. Some bite marks. Hehe, delicious. Let me know what your favorite winter treat is. Do you like candy canes just plain or do you prefer them coated in chocolate like me? [Laughs] I’m at the point where like if I try to eat just a candy cane I’m like, feels
like I’m just eating one ingredient of a much larger recipe That
was a little trickier to draw than the other two things. Maybe with color, I can figure this out. So we want that – Let
me start with the gray and then layer it with the browns and see if that makes a difference. Instead of putting the gray on top. We’re using it more of a base and then maybe putting that dark suntan back on top. Then some shadows. Yeah, I feel like that kind of worked. Maybe even just darken the whole thing up. Yeah, I’m really liking this cashew color for chocolate and that’s E79 Let me color in the white chocolate. Maybe yellow was a bad idea. Inside of ivory, let me go back to that pink. Because we’re gonna have pink in the peppermint, right? So maybe you’ll make more sense. Hmm. and we need our little candy pieces on top. And I’m gonna try and make them more look like that or a candy cane and less like that. That’s pretty hard because they’re so small though. Now the other thing that this is making me think of is like freckles because there’s like little specks, right? I’m just gonna write the word freckles. It made me think of that. I’m just gonna finish up this candy cane Gonna do a little bit of a different design, because sometimes candy canes, you know, they
have the swirl but then they have like two skinny swirls and then a big swirl and two skinnies and then more like that. There we have our color scheme. Ooh! I’m excited. I feel like we were on the right track. So
with these colors in mind and these sort of like shapes I’m also – These are all winter… Candies, right? I think maybe the princess should maybe be wearing a more winter outfit and winter has like snowflakes Winter and princess makes me kind of think of like the hand muffs, like little fluffy things to put your hand in to keep
your hands warm when you’re going on a sleigh ride. [Laughs] I’m not speaking from experience. Hands in it to keep them warm because they don’t have gloves or something I’m
just drawing the head because I don’t know what to do! and now it ended up very, very large. Now if we’re gonna have like a little muff, we should probably include some other fluffy bits [Laughs] What if it’s like a cape? So then that gives us layers and peppermint bark has layers. So maybe your princess should too. Feeling a little to Belle Christmas dress. [Chuckles] I kind of want to make it my own a little bit more. I probably don’t need the legs in there, It’s not a transparent dress. Definitely need
to include some of these like fun stripes somewhere. Maybe we could do it just straight on the dress, but that might be a little out there. ♪ Hmm. Actually if we have to like dress stripy and then this coat that comes over top. More of a solid color, either brown or red. It’ll kind of like subdue it a little. And then it might not be as much in your face. Add a little tone in so I can actually see. Wait, I think I just filled in the opposites of the stripes! Oh well. [Laughs] I made do. Kinda need to draw from a different angle. A little frumpy looking at the moment. Probably should give them some pupils. So they’re a little less demonic. I still have no idea what to do for hair. We definitely need a crown So people know she’s a princess and not just an extravagant dresser. Maybe we add some of that pouf… Winter pouf at the bottom of the coat. Thinking some kind of like – Make it look more expensive, add some embroidery of some kind. Kind of imitating this shape. ♪ Just kind of sketching it out though, See how it would look. Oh, that might work, Ooh! I like that. Have stars of some kind into the embroidery. That makes it looks so much more expensive. Doesn’t it? We still need to do hair. Maybe an up-do. ♪ It’s just so boring though. Trying to think of like winter hairstyles but like, what makes a hairstyle winter? Whenever
I leave my hair down and I put on a coat and a hat, ny hair gets us like giant nest in the back of it [Sighs] So maybe
up-dos are more wintry or braids or something. We
could do really crazy hair that’s peppermint red and white but then I think we need to tone down the skirt. That might be a little overkill and I think we’re also forgetting that peppermint bark is kind of like layered like this. I’ve kind of just sort of like thrown it all over the place Could just do like a short hair. It does kind of fit the design a little bit. Go ahead and draw it like another angle here. With some similarities and like a few little changes Just want to see it from a different angle, then we’ll throw in some colors in this little thumbnail too to see how they kind of like fit kind of just thrown in there Make sure all the tones don’t clash too much and they’re all well laid out. What if it’s like hair kind of like this. Like a fun… ponytail? We have the hood. The cape that kinda like comes down like this. Oh and we could put something fun on the back. If we make it poof out a little bit more. I’m kind of gonna skip a little muff. I don’t know what it’ called. I think it’s a muff. I’m gonna just go with gloves like white gloves to kind of imitate the white chocolate. So now with those stripes. I definitely
want to thumbnail the idea with the candy cane strips Darken
it a little this week and see it from behind the dress Let’s lighten
the sketch and add some really simple line art on top. Just something about the earrings really makes it look so much more princessy. [Laughs] There’s no
separation between the hair the forehead at this point ♪ But that’s what further iterations will be for. Now color. Kinda want the shapes of it thought to be more like this squiggliness. I wonder how I could do that Like while still maintaining the shape of the dress and not making it too confusing. I’m not really sure of the right path. Kinda interesting. I’m not
sure how I feel about it now that I’ve seen it with colors. Oh wait, I do have darker red. Peony, oh, but now it’s a little mushy from the other color It’s nice to see it kind of in action though. And I think I want to use that really dark red for the top Oh, I really like how that looks. I feel like hair probably would be white because that’s like the layer that’s on top Though something at the top should probably be white I don’t
want to include like any extra colors if I don’t have to you know, let’s see how stripy hair looks. [Laughs] Might as well try it. but then we end up with this really large area of no color and I don’t like that. We can make the inside red. I don’t know. Now I feel like the colors are getting too close together, What
if I had red and brown together. What is that look like? ♪ You know what, that’s not bad because the stripes are a different texture, right? So they keep themselves separate from the coat The only problem now is there’s not enough brown ’cause it doesn’t give me that chocolate bar kind of vibe We got plenty of white, plenty of red, not enough brown. Could make the embroidery brown but that’s – I feel like that’s gonna end up looking a little bit like mud. Maybe she’s frolicking through chocolate. I don’t know. Let
me try just adding like some dark brown over the hair. Kind of
pulls away from like the magicesque side of it though. Alright. Here’s what I’m thinking. Chocolate bark, right? We got dark chocolate, white chocolate, peppermint. So maybe this dress, as much as I like the stripes, needs to be brown. The coat should be white and then
everything, all the accessories should be peppermint because it’s the flaky stuff at the top. We’ll try it! See how it goes. I can take this time to try and change up her design if I come up with anything I definitely like the white gloves. So I’m not sure if those will stay the same. I wanted to draw
the stripes on the skirt, but I’m not supposed to! Oo! Let me try some long hair, why not? It would also include
a lot more brown if I stuck with that color scheme. I totally forgot a crown, didn’t I? I’ve got another thumbnail. Let’s pop in some color. See if we can find something that works a little better. If I was just
doing peppermint or candy cane, this would be perfect. Like, I don’t think I would change anything, but the problem is my inspiration was Chocolate peppermint bark here and it’s, it’s just too pepperminty, you know. Even the
white doesn’t make me think of white chocolate It just makes me think more peppermint. So
we’re kind of missing like white and dark chocolate here. [Laughs] So let me try something else, okay. Then erase the rest a sketch so we don’t muddy the colors with our graphite. Chocolate for the dress I don’t – [Sighs] I don’t know! It’s not
like digital where we can just switch out the colors, you got to redraw everything. Not that I’m opposed to that. It just time consuming! Oh, I kind of like the two tones of brown. It does give me a more expensive kinda luxury vibe Kinda like that embroidery did for this skirt If I go white for this, then we have to do peppermint for the hair. Right? And then what do I do with this bow? [Laughs] I mean I could’ve just ignored the bow, I suppose. what do I leave the fluffy bit this color to? And then just add peppermint specks. It’s not hat bad of an idea, actually. Can I do it all over this coat? Almost gives it like an animal print texture and then we could leave the white gloves. ♪ Then for the hair, we could, we could do that fun sort of like my little pony Peppermint hair [Laughs] Where you get to kind of like draw the strokes like this I don’t know if that’s still a little too pepperminty. That’s an idea there too. I’m just full of ideas. I just can’t find good ones you know? That’s the tricky part! We could do, is add like really dark… color to the back of the cape, Then we’ll have to draw it a little bit more so you see that and then use that color for the bow or just cut the bow out entirely because the hair is so complicated Okay, we definitely accomplished the more brown and the more white. This, I think is
definitely heading into more peppermint bark direction I’m happy
with the progress, still needs some tweaks though. I feel
like it needs something happening at the bottom there. We
could use that really dark rich brown. Where was that? And that’s some embroidery. Maybe something that looks like a candy cane It looks like a goat [Laughs] My bad! Little more candy cane on this one. Okay, that’s giving me gingerbread vibes and that is not helping with the chocolate. But now we want to draw a character that’s gingerbread, but no! Got stick with what I’m doing! Gotta finish one idea first! Yeah, that is – okay the little dots and everything, It’s definitely giving me more gingerbread house vibes So. I’m running out of paper. I wanted to do like a finished one there. [Gasps] Oh, I know what I’ll do, okay. We’ll use this room for more ideas. So. I’m gonna use a col-erase pencil this time. So maybe I don’t have to do the dumb erasing. I really love this hair. I kind of want to like do it more justice, try that again. I think we’re gonna have to just X out the bow. It’s just too
distracting when we have this really complicated hair The chocolate, maybe it’s ’cause it’s too red. I don’t know. I mean chocolates a little bit more – because I’ve never really paid attention Let’s add a little gray on top. See if it pulls away from the gingerbread cookie. ♪ You know what, it kind of does. It does look a lot more like chocolate to me. After all, that’s what we’re looking for. What we could do, is add the design to this. Then we get that peppermint… Embroidery but it’s just on the coat. Okay, that’s kinda cute. Mmmm. Then maybe
for this skirt, just keep it to like stripes or something I mean we could just do that design on top. It’s peppermint chocolate, you know. [Giggles] Might try it. It’s still not like selling the chocolate to me. Sketch another one here. Maybe
she’ll be actually doing something different for her pose, even though I have not figured out the outfit yet. Try and find her personality. ♪ How do you sit down in a princess dress? This was a bad idea. I need to figure out what the design looks like before I think I could draw it sitting down and condensed You know. We’ve got some hair coming up in that way. Oh that’s better. That’s way better, huh. Wind blowing. Kinda just get over this with the pencil. I know the plan was just to go over it with color, but not feeling very confident in the pose So it needs a little extra work. ♪ I think my favorite part of this design is that… Everything’s in the order that it is on like the actual treat. You have chocolate on the bottom, white chocolate in the middle Peppermint on the top. It kinda flows nicely. I don’t want to lose that, if I adjust the colors, that’s what I’m worried about. Wow, her face has changed a lot over time. [Chuckles] She’ used to actually have a chin now she doesn’t. Oops. There’s supposed to be a hood on this. It seems to have gotten lost. [Laughs] Pull her arms up a little. That way we can see her gloves. Add some wrinkles here. The cape kind of flowing over the dress. Why
don’t I pull the hair up a little bit more so you can see it and then I can add that fun swoosh. There we goooo. This looks like someone else’s art style, I don’t know what’s going on in this face. I drew it I saw myself do it. [Laughs] Lighten the sketch! ♪ Alright, what have we got? Oh here. I didn’t erase all the pencil. You know,
besides the col-erase ’cause that’s impenetrable. This obviously isn’t exactly going to be noticeable with this sketch cuz it’s so small, but what if her eyeballs were shaped like that? [Laughs] Like her pupils. Would that be weird? It probably would be weird. Oh and be real creative with our brush strokes here. So they’re
nice and fluid and they maintain the shape of the hair without like confusing the eye. I need to follow the strands of the hair. Then there should be variety of the width. I think more squiggly helps. I guess they can probably, you know bump into each other. It shouldn’t be perfectly straight. We have to make sure we leave some white space too if we add too many stripes, It’s not gonna look like a candy cane. There you go. I think I went a little too bacon up at the top. But I figured out when I got to the bottom. It needs to have more white in it. I could probably take this white paint marker. Kind of add more space between some of these and it won’t be as perfect as white paper, but be close. Actually looks kind of cool might do that all over the place It’s
like a pink. Kinda interacts with the marker underneath that makes it more of a pink. I’m just gonna color in her eyes red for now because
we can obviously go over that with something else and it’ll probably settle it down. But there we go and red lips. This is where it gets a little wishy-washy because I’m not entirely sure what to do. But I think we can color in the coat white chocolate. So we’re gonna mix a little bit of Ivory and pinkish white. Don’t know how to make it look like white chocolate. That’s such a hard color ’cause it’s like white But it’s like a creamy white. You know. Let me try eggshell, that sounds… right. Maybe that’ll help. That kinda works. Let me get color in the gloves with this too. I must not use this color much. It’s working really nice. I like
the way it’s interacting with the pink color underneath Beautiful! Subtle enough. White and creamy looking. Okay, this was perfect, E50. Thank you We can still use a little bit of the pinkish white for like a little extra something. And then the ivory actually worked really well. What was that, ivory? Yeah. For like desaturating it a little. I think I should draw the candy cane pieces on top ’cause like when I just blocked them, It wasn’t quite the look I wanted. Whereas, see how there’s separate pieces. So I think the separate pieces will help and have them stick out So like one can be coming out of there. One could be coming out here and make sure I vary the shapes and sizes of them ‘Cause it’s just a bunch of crumblies. Right? Maybe concentrate most of them on the top of things. Maybe put some down here too. Let me color those in and see how they look before I put too many in here! Try to add stripes if I can. If they’re big enough. Obviously a lot of them are going to be mostly white Not a lot of surface area. Okay, that’s working I think. It’s a little on the nose because it literally looks like peppermint bark. Maybe that made more sense. I do want to like put the little peppermints down here, little designs or draw little circles. to keep the shapes inside of and try to copy that ♪ Got to take into account where the wrinkles are. You don’t want to just draw straight across right? Oh, man.
I wanna eat some peppermint barks so bad right now! but instead I’m drawing it [Laughs] It’s better for your figure. I ♪ I think I want to add like the snowflakes in there too. I feel like that made sense to me. I’m just draw little stars and speckles and magic particles Kinda have them come up a little. Do the dress. The dark chocolate! How do I want to go about this? I think I like this last iteration of this one the best. I feel like this should be the easiest part because chocolate has like the least texture. [Laughs] The candy cane part should have been the hardest. I have
so many browns, I don’t know which one to start with. I’ll start with this one because it has the word cocoa in it. Yeah, that looks delicious Go ahead and fill in the shapes. Chocolate is like really dark. Maybe that’s what I need to go with this Like it needs to be that color. Yeah, more like that color, exactly. [Giggles] Like I’ve done earlier. Go over it with this. Definitely desaturate the crap out of it. Mine’s not milk chocolate. We’re going for dark chocolate. Whoa, I like that gradient. [Gasps] Whoa, wait a minute. Hmm. Hmm. How can I take advantage of this without losing it That looks like – Ooh! I accidentally bumped into something here. I need to like blend it out better. It’s a little patchy. See ’cause like all the references of chocolate, They have like super harsh bright highlights of like light just hitting them and it looks basically white. So maybe
that’s what I need to make it look more like chocolate. Like really… bright highlights. Problem is it’s like kind of deep in the coat. So not a lot of light’s probably gonna hit it. Realistically. Oh, shoot what’s happening? It’s got a growth! I think if I’m gonna go that route, I need it to be darker It’s like we’re lights not hitting the chocolate For the most part it’s really just dark. Kind of changing this up on a whim. Look at all the chocolate! I mean, it doesn’t need to look exactly like chocolate. It just needs to give the chocolate vibe, which I think I got from some of these earlier ones. So maybe I’m being too picky. I’m not sure it’s actually improving the design. Alright I don’t know if you can even see that on camera, but I can. Now we went really dark for the dress, so the skin might have to be pulled back a little. Start light and build up like I usually do. We’ll start with the neck before we get to the face. How about that? That’s better. Dat’s more like it. Oh, I never gave her earrings. Shoot. Or a crown! Ah! Accessories they’re always my downfall. I just can never remember that they exist. Maybe ’cause they’re not part of my wardrobe either. You
know what would also be cute, is if I gave your green eyes Would be a little bit more festive. That copper color worked really well for like blush, I think Over render face as always. Alright, do I wanna make any other changes? I think we’ve definitely gone in the right direction There’s a way more white chocolate, way more dark chocolate and lots of candy cane accents. [Sighs in relief] Yes! I do want to add a little shading maybe to the hair. Not too much, just a little. Kind of differentiate different layers of it. I like the way it like blends. Looks so candy caney. Hmm? No, I feel like the gloves are kind of like… blending
in a little so I wonder if I could make them more pink or we could just make them straight red. Ooh! Or I could make them stripey and candy caney. Dude! [Eurghhh] What I could do is grab like a red. Start with just like as a little extra texture. It does pull it away. I do you think it looks… good. That was said with a lot of confidence. This might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s happening anyway. Ooh, what if I leave it white with the hands? Oh, that’s actually kind of interesting. Oooh. I think I will do that. Instead of giving her jewelry. [Laughs] I did that. I’m really tempted to go in digitally and draw this again. and if I do that, I’ll have the line art for you to color as well If you’d like to try and do the design yourself and maybe change up the colors or I don’t know. Put your own spin on it Let me know what you think her name should be. I’ll pick my favorite one and I’ll post it when I post like something on Instagram with her in it and you’ll know her name. Ha ha. Let’s draw her one last time. I feel like her name should be Peppermint Bark. [Chuckles] Or PB. I don’t know. I think I dropped this and now lead inside broken! Give her a little bit more expression. Probably won’t happen, but that’s the plan I really didn’t do anything interesting with the face. Did I? Didn’t put a lot of thought in it. We didn’t do any like peppermint makeup or anything. Kinda reminds me of a character I drew last Christmas. To be honest, she had like a off-the-shoulder fluffy gown. My go-to winter dress. Princess dresses. The part I’m still not entirely sure about, I
mean I could still visit her design again in the future here but the peppermint bark flake’s a little on the nose and yes, she has – Yes, she has candy cane for hair but that feels more… Creative I think. [Laughs] The blobs of Peppermint candy here. I should make her a friend that’s just a candy cane that she can hang out with. Now I
kind of want to like create like an everyday outfit for her and an athletic, outfit and a sleepwear. [Laughs] Kind of like The Sims. A whole Sims repertoire of outfits. That’s what I liked about The Sims 3 create a style thing, where you could pick stripes and change the colors of each of the stripes. You could literally make a character whose favorite food was watermelon and everything
they wore made them look like a watermelon. Oh, I miss those days. [Laughs] Endless hours in The Sims. Not sure what else I would change. I’m really tempted to draw her digitally. Yeah, if I do maybe I’ll throw in a little speed paint… Right here and just kind of show you how I made it and then I’ll definitely include some line art for you to color if you would like. That way you can use – If you like any of these three designs the best, you can color it with whatever colors you want Maybe next week, when we fill another spread in my sketchbook I’ll create a everyday outfit for her or something. That would be really [Hums tunefully] My favorite Christmas candy. Mmm! [Hums part of “Mr Sandman”] But I think that is it for me today. Thanks for drawing along with me as I fill this spread in my sketchbook. I’ll see you guys all next week and I hope you have a delicious evening full of waffles. Bye! ♪

  1. i read FASIMS and sat here figuring it out for a good 40 sec borefor i got that its most likely "For A Spread In My Sketchbook"

  2. I have a challege for you try and use all your art suplies and make as mamy of your OC charters.🧐🧐🧐🧐🧐🧐🧐

  3. that candy coat looks so great! idk why but there's something so satisfying about those red swirls… also my mind immediately went to calling her pepper, it's quite on the nose but not too obvious at the same time you know?

  4. 10:17 I have a pair of wrist length wool gloves with a slim (I think) foe-leather cuff and matching bows maybe try that as a design for a wintery character sometime?

  5. Rinβ€” I am a PEPPERMINT CANDYCANE GIRL ! I love anything and everything minty!!! I also love Peppermint Bark too and Peppermint Meltaways…. mmmm πŸ˜‹ so good. Love this…. little lady . Especially the way her hair came out and I liked the fuzzy muff in your original sketch (yes you were right) on her hands. To me that screams Christmas πŸŽ„ time to me but, your finished sketch is incredible as always! Another great video. Happy Holidays to you and your family.

  6. i almost had a heart attack thinking that peppermint bark was pieces of candy cane dipped in chocolate–

    my poor swedish self almost lost my marbles πŸ˜† πŸ˜‚

  7. This design would work great for a little "draw this in your style" πŸ€”. Looks like she would be really fun to draw tbh πŸ€—.

  8. Got hella inspired with that first sketch of your princess and drew something similar! I can't draw faces but I commented just to explain how much this channel has helped me with my art

  9. I’m so glad she made Peppermint Bark a black girl 😭 while I was watching I was just like β€œman I hope she makes her black” LOL it’s so fitting!

  10. I think the character should have a minty blue green skin with some pink highlights or like a yellow for white chocolate with some pink highlights. The Cape should be brown. The hair white and the dress should be that yellow peppermint bark. There isnt much dark chocolate on peppermint bark so you shouldn't use much of it in the picture.

  11. i was thinking for the chocolate on the dress you could have made it shiner and that would have made it look less gingerbready imo

  12. Stopped at 17:20 just to say I really love the first sketch she is more "winter" to me right now than any of the others. lol

  13. I love the final design you got and the peppermint pieces on top of the coat/dress look super cute imo! love this character <3<3

  14. P. B… Phoebe? She would definitely benefit from a Blubfish in a Santa hat. 😊

    My white Derwent pen splattered too! I think I'll stick with posca. πŸ˜‰

  15. ya know… she should have a whole court of holiday candy themed people and then like an "elf on a shelf" dude for either a consort, an advisor or a court jester. like he's the odd man out that she just loves but isn't ready to commit to because maybe her people wouldn't agree but then she decides to be herself. then all the people are like, "we were waiting for you to accept yourself before We weighed in" so she can marry the elf on the shelf dude and they all live happily ever after in the Winter Candy "king"Dom.
