Hey guys! Today I am trying something a little different. I dug up one of my old, childhood art boxes, selected a couple (really bad) drawings out of there, and I am going to re-do them as an adult and see if I can improve them! These are really poorly done drawings, so I do a fair amount of roasting (you've been warned 😂 ), but remember if you are a beginner artist, it's okay to not make great art at first. In fact, even if you've been doing art for a long time (*cough* ME), it's okay if your art isn't the best. Don't fall into the trap of comparing yourself to other artists or put to much pressure on yourself. Most of us are just doing this art thing for fun. So do whatever is enjoy able for you! Okay. that's the end of my talk now 😂
This is kinda similar to the "draw this again" challenges I've seen from other youtubers. I was originally going to title this "Re-doing my childhood artwork." BUT I realized this video has a super similar format to my squishy makeovers. There's an art critique section (squishy roasting) and it's all about taking something that doesn't look it's best and transforming it into something new.
I ended up using a bunch of different media for these different drawings including watercolor, colored pencils and posca paint pens.
Please let me know if you would like to see me do anymore videos like this (like I said, I've been able to find some more "art" since filming this). I had a blast with this, and it would be a great way to fill my sketchbook which has been a little neglected lol.

___________WELCOME TO MY CHANNEL__________
Hey! my name is Moriah (pronounced muh-rye-yuh 😂 ) and this is my channel....obviously. I'm 25 and like doing anything creative...and being snarky.....just a lil. I make a lot of decorating and painting videos here. I'm obsessed with editing and adding lil bits to my videos, so if that's not your thing....oof you may hate this haha. I paint on squishies, thrift store finds, and other random things I pick up. I also love to draw, but don't expect anything too skilled, I'm not the best at that haha. You will also find occasional crafting/testing crafting kits on my channel which are always a hot mess. And even some baking (REALLY bad at that, but it's fun to try LOL).
