In the second of our #DrawwithMischief video series, Carly Sanker builds on her How to Draw Gestures tutorial and starts to add Tone & Shade to her original character composition. 

Carly starts by adding black & white shading to her mythical character using Mischief, before exporting her artwork into Photoshop to add tone and the beginnings of color.

    Carly, I enjoyed your video. I am curious what software you use to make the video. I want to do tutorials too. So can you advise me as to what video program you use to capture the screen and have the nice inset of you working also, so I can buy a copy and learn to use it? Thank you I am David Isaac Herman, you can see my wing and Multiverse entity on Mischief in the Gallery.
