[Watch Me Draw] Disney Series- Moana

VideosJessie ChenComment

Hi everyone!

I'm starting to get more consistent on YouTube again and have added to my "Watch Me" series! I made a bunch of videos on Disney lettering last spring when I visited Disneyland for the first time and I have FINALLY come around to posting them! I started with Moana because that was the most recent Disney film I watched (which is the only video I filmed recently). It's easily become one of my favorite soundtracks! I hope you enjoy :)

Using Dr. Ph. Martin's Radiant Concentrated Watercolors with Pointed Pen

Tutorials, VideosJessie ChenComment

Hi all!

It's good to be back! My husband got a new camera for me to record my YouTube videos and I was so amazed by the result that I couldn't wait to share this with everyone. It took me awhile to get off my butt and start the editing process. Then it took *days* for the video to get uploaded onto YouTube (that was my bad) and when it finally got uploaded, lo and behold... a spelling error on the actual lettering.

Why I didn't catch this the thousand times I had to look at it while I was editing the video? I do not know. I only know this: I am dumb.

So in short, sorry for the ridiculous of this would-be inspirational quote: "don't just fly sore" :P
