Drawing a Mountain Mandala

Hi guys! Today I’m sharing a speed drawing video I created showing the making of my latest design “Mountain Mandala”!

After drawing the mandala I scanned and edited it using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. This process is not shown in the video, but you can find more details on how to clean up your line art drawings using Photoshop and Illustrator in this post.

I’ve started creating videos to work on my recording and editing skills, which has become a fun creative project to work on!

I recorded this video on my phone, which is funny because I tried using an old digital camera but it was worse quality than my smartphone!  It’s crazy how quickly technology improves.

To position the phone above the drawing surface I used a flexible holding arm I bought  from Amazon. I edited the video using Adobe Premiere Pro.

My Mountain Mandala design has been uploaded to my various stores, and you can see some sample products below!

  1. I feel like this is a basic question but I’ve seen a lot of drawing videos and I don’t understand something. It looks like the picture is already drawn and that you’re just tracing over it with a market. Is that what you’re doing? If so, why are you doing that? Why don’t you just show the finished picture? I feel like I’m missing something important because I don’t get it. Thanks for helping me to understand.

    1. Hi Cerene. It is true I sketched the design in pencil before I drew the finished piece with marker. I do that because with pen, the mistakes are much harder to fix. I often add more details in once I’ve traced over the pencil sketch. The videos are really just for fun, I thought it looked cool sped up like that, and apparently people like to watch other’s draw. Hope that makes some sense.
