LOOKING THROUGH MY OLD ART | grade school notebooks | DrawingWiffWaffles

I promised the art Historian who had this next piece in their collection that I would wear gloves when I handled it so… *clap clap* here we go Do you remember that time when I was showing you this like really old art, and I was like hey, that’s some of it I’ll show you the rest of it later, and then I didn’t… well, well, It’s later now Okay, so I believe last time when I was showing you the stuff I left off, oh! On this guy When I was, uhm, obsessed with Sweden and loish apparently So these have already shown you if you want to see all of these old sketches some of them Get really really old. I think like 2006 ish so I’ll have a link, boop-boop-boop, and you can check that out *Mumbles* Yeah, those are in another video. But today, we are going to be focusing on this Pack of beautiful illustrations as well as I actually… I happened to find the oldest Illustration that I own. but first let’s finish off this. Now these illustrations are, I believe, this one is 2007, and this one is 2008.What I used to do is I would just sketch in some notepads that I had laying around and yeah in the 2007-2008 range And maybe a little earlier, I was very obsessed with pirates and look I was doing the alphabetical order challenge, P is for a pirate! And it’s actually a rare male that I drew which is pretty cool Yeah, I drew a very, uh, hmhmhm Woman (laughs) I actually do like this drawing though like the little flowers in her hair and a little foot poking out and the fabrics *Page flip* this one *nervously laughs* This was a little funny. This one I do wanna, I don’t know if you can see but I did, I did something very important in this sketch let me see if you could tell I drew the legs So that I would know how long a skirt was that is very important and very helpful when drawing skirts When you draw in the legs that’s very helpful for knowing where the wrinkles are gonna Go and what part of the fabric is going to be pressed on or upwards or anything like that so even though This is a very old sketch, and it’s not gonna win any awards um, I was learning techniques that were very important, so it’s kind of interesting. I like I like to see that. That’s a good thing to see now here’s a girl, oh! I Remember this okay, so this is a girl that I drew it’s like a milk maid or something. I don’t know a bartender You know goes with the piratey theme of this sketchbook so far, but yeah, I don’t know if you can tell But I tried to draw some feet, and they just didn’t look good. I didn’t like them So what did I do? I drew a chest! She’s standing behind a chest so we don’t have to see her feet That’s creative. I like that. Ten points for creativity! – 20 points for not drawing feet and learning how to draw feet, and you’ll also notice that the hands Are behind her because I was terrified of drawing hands This one I was so proud of I don’t even, I don’t know if I had a reference I feel like I must have had a reference. You know what this actually looks like a sketch, or is this a sketch? or is this the sketch I’m thinking of…? I don’t know.. This reminds me of something that I think’s my sketchbook But this might be the sketch that I’m thinking of so let’s just ignore that but this is really good and I remember being very proud of it the pirate lady um and she’s got a little pet seagull who’s got a little bandana and uh Oh, no. It is a picture because look I signed it so she drew what the Painting or painted. I guess a picture of a, a noose. That’s, that’s, that’s it. That’s it. It’s very creative Oh, I see another funny thing that I want to point out okay, so her legs went up. Which is kind of natural It doesn’t really look that weird, but I thought it looked unnatural so I drew a bag of money So that her knee was resting on something funny… and more pirates milkmaid stuff look at this The hands, I mean they need work But I am so proud of myself for not erasing them Because I actually get to see what my hands used to look like and compare them to the way I draw hands now So that’s very very cool Appreciate that. Thank you past me um.. let’s see.. B is for Buccaneer This pirate I believe was actually inspired by my brother again I’m glad that I drew hands cuz how you get better at drawing hands is by drawing them And yeah, it has five fingers, which is important, last one didn’t Next, this is another pirate, this is inspired by my other brother. Well. I like this pose. It’s very Jack Sparrow-esque five fingers again, that’s good. Ah here. We have another pirate this time She has an animal sidekick who looks like it’s a bunny Who’s holding a gun! my goodness, but we have all five fingers good to See I do like the way you said draw feet. It was just Like a flat line, a scoop, and another flat line. I really like that. I like the um, the simplicity of it. It’s very cute Next you have a little bit more of an innocent girl sketch, I like that I like the corset back and the cute little curls Another one this looks a little bit more rushed than my other drawings This I kind of specifically remembered drawing the leg too short But really liking the way the host turned out so I didn’t want to erase them So I just drew a box for home to be standing on I mean it didn’t really solve this problem But it solved this problem, so hey. I’m all for solutions here. I drew a Jedi so we’re finally leaving the piratey Edwardian theme and moving on to a sci-fi. That’s pretty cool here I like the boots so much that I decided to draw it again. I really like her simple face and These hands are work in progress, but five fingers again. Look at the bright side look at the bright side It’s a dog that’s a dog as well Next up we have a girl in the long skirt playing ball and turtleneck are those socks and sandals oh Yeah, it looks like I tried to draw something, and it just didn’t turn out It’s trying to use some kind of skeleton technique because I can see the bones that I was trying to draw You know where you just draw a line for each limb sort of thing and I could see it in the feet This was when I was trying to learn some new Techniques of drawing that because I wasn’t very experienced and I hadn’t found what worked well for me I’m glad that I experimented you didn’t turn out. What do you will and I think that’s it for this book? Didn’t really use it much. That was the thing I used to do I’d never finish Anything really? There’s that um the other one that I have here which I believe is the next year 2008 so this was around the same time is my very first sketchbook I was very young and I didn’t have a car so I Couldn’t just go to the store get another sketchbook so I found this old thing um I believe a lot of this stuff is from like how to draw books and yeah, that’s definitely a Book oh and here I am again Critiquing myself as I go I do like that it…. There’s a theme to this outfit like there’s these still across Sections it seemed to go throughout the whole thing like that Okay, we have like an archery elf girl I believe these are from like a how to draw a book, but I could be wrong so if they look familiar They’re probably from that book No I titled this one getting ready, I actually really like this, I don’t know face of reference these I really don’t even remember doing ever and then this is believed again from our reference, but look at this hand can we just We just compare the progress in one year Sure, this was with like a how to draw a book, but look don’t give up people don’t give up Yeah, and this is from how to draw a book again how to draw a book Doesn’t mean Her design is so fun, but it’s like impossible to look good More Safe or something you can see through it This one looks more like I designed it The pose and everything the hands see they’re a little better than that last year This actually reminds me of my East my drawing with the knife behind her she’s an elf princess I’m like the outfit. It’s actually kind of cute. Oh This was supposed to be Filomena’s friend. She had like a specific outfit that she’d wear I Forgot you had like fluffy boots Oh What was I thinking? This it actually looks pretty cool. I like the pose So probably used in art books so there’s not done yet should I finish it now More Philomena using some kind of gadget to pick a lock I Must have had a reference for this because this Does not look like something that came straight out of my head all this one’s cute There’s her friend again. So that’s more you can see your outfit a little better in this drawing with the weird fluffy boots I don’t know because they were in the future I assume that they weird weird clothes So I mean again, I really like that that is cute Very cute. I like that pose a lot. I like the way this leg is kind of foreshortened in with the background Yeah, that is really really good. I like that one What princess? Who is back when I was starting to learn how to draw a link rock some wrinkles I Love drawing ruffles and wrinkles because by the way if you don’t know. Oh here’s Philly as a chibi, Adorable… yeah when I was younger I was really obsessed with that outfit I reasonably tried to like revisit it this was supposed to be drying up my friend And it’s just like really impossible to make that outfit look Well-designed because it’s just so crazy here’s a girl watching TV because it is a remote nerd and There’s another girl that’s actually left sketches in here. I didn’t realize. I’m not sure what this is oh? Okay, this is me my friend, so I’m in Michigan. She’s in Tennessee That’s kind of funny. I don’t remember what this was for of us this was for a poster Maybe I was trying to make her a present This one has some amazing bangs We got to say that oh, there’s another another quick one. I believe this is a redrawing of something. That’s in my sketchbook That is it for that one But there’s some things at the end whoo comics I’m free Permission to drive headless opportunities are now open to me. I can go wherever I want. I finally got my driver’s license Yeah, sure whatever you say dear as long as you are paying for the gas. Oh yes Yeah, and your dad left some job pamphlets for you. Good job There was a page too, but I never wrote the words All this was I had this idea for a comic called my life as dishwasher at groom Nellie’s Yeah So that’s it for that one got this one Can’t get over these hands with a cloth must overcome old sketches. I found just laying around This one is pretty ancient this one has to be like Early 2000s sharpie on napkin very original. I don’t even know if I drew that honestly I don’t remember that could have been someone else And now the piece de resistance I found an art historian who happened to uh. They have this piece That was drawn by drawing with waffles You know very old like one of the most Earliest drawings, and I promised the person I’d wear gloves when I handled it, but here. Let’s get this stuff out of the way (You guys aren’t ready for this… it’s a true masterpiece) Here we have one of my earliest pieces is actually cran and pencil on printer paper. There’s also some Very artistic additions to this illustration that makes it very unique if you see the crayon actually Fixed itself to my hand when I was drawing this and there’s little Fingerprints where I transferred that same crayon back onto the paper. It’s very Very amazing and original yeah, you really don’t see art. Like this in my portfolio anymore Handle it very gently I’m actually in the process of moving rooms, and I found this um and I believe it’s from first grade, so that would have been Like 98 or 1999 like this is old, man, this is Ancient work of art right here. I don’t know why she has the letter e on her. I don’t know I Think she’s holding the telephone give you a closer look (yes, bring us closer to the cathrine) wooooooow This piece is worth a lot So I have to treat it with the utmost care in a temperature-controlled room. I got insurance on it I’m joking I hope you understand this. Yeah, it’s a really great piece. I like it I should actually redraw, this is what I should do. This is quaint fun Now it’s time to go put this back into its weather controlled room Anyway, I wanna thank you guys all for watching, and I’ll see you guys all next week byeeeeeeeeeeeee! (I don’t think we can wait until next week to see this beautiful thing redrawn!) -your faithful watchers

  1. The drawings in the yellow sketchbook that you thought were referenced came from The Monster Book of Manga, if you were wondering.

    Rin : hey little bunny whatcha got there?

  3. Drawingwiffwaffles: as you can see I hat e drawing feet so I didn’t draw feet and her hands are hiding behind her because I was terrified of drawing hands!

    Me:oooh! So it’s not just me? SO RELATABLE

  4. The Catherine drawing is how I draw now at 28 years of age… I don't know whether to laugh or to cry.. FML :'D

  5. What no this is a BIG LIE because I gave her that note book with MY drawings and I know your not going to believe it because oh she will never lie to us will SHE DID lie and she put her signature

  6. Ok it is just me, the last pictures that she drew, she said I don’t know why I drew and E on it, it reminded me of when I was in preschool they had these little letter puppet things and they each had a little letter on their dress, or shirt.

  7. i love how youre positive about your old art and not complaining about how bad it is
    it makes you a lot different than other youtubers

  8. I found a sketchbook from 5th grade and there was a drawing of a squirrel with its head cut off.
    I was weird 😆

  9. Me (a 12 year old): i'll never be as good as her. I bet when she was younger she was still better than me– watches video

  10. woooow, seeing the dates too reminded me that I was 4 years old back then! Holy cowwwwwwwwwww

  11. The cynical side of me wants to say thats not what woman pirates looked like, but that would be fucking stupid.

  12. Why did people draw bad when they where at middle school 🤣 im about to go to high school and I draw pretty decent.

  13. i was watching this and saw you open the yellow sketch book and i was like this looks like the book i have, the monster book of manga LMAO

  14. I do art when like you know the girls with the bandet thing when they put it around there mouth. I drew those things , and done some fingers with the middle finger up, Even a gun.

    Kids these days.. 🙄

  15. Lol, i have a one subject notebook and a drawer full of drawing on 6th grade and early 7th grade. I hate them but my parents won't let me throw/burn them like Eliza.

  16. One thing that makes me flip out is whenever someone just snatches your sketchbook whenever you're drawing. They just go, "hEy, watcha dRawinG?" Then they walk away with the entire thing.

  17. YO! I FIGURED OUT WHAT THE BLUE IS! She probably drew the dress and then “shaded in” the empty neck hole, then realized she needed to draw a head. Maybe? I did that.

  18. So im now trying to change my poses on my drawings instead of a person standing straight and i watch these kinds of videos so i can improve my art style and thank you so much for inspiring me 😀😄😊
