Austin Enyidah · December 19, 2011 at 12:53 am

Great work

RODRIGO ALONSO · December 19, 2011 at 12:55 am

buubles6906 · December 19, 2011 at 1:11 am

everytime i try to use my watercolor brush it doesn't work

Ricky Rubix · December 19, 2011 at 1:11 am

derrick rose

Merrill Kazanjian · December 19, 2011 at 1:13 am

@buubles6906 It takes a while for a brush to get loaded. Bristle brushes move the graphite around a little bit quicker. Try with a bristle on drawing paper and let it get loaded with graphite. Keep using that brush for pencil drawing and dont clean it. Does that help?

Merrill Kazanjian · December 19, 2011 at 1:14 am

@adventuretime135 I was seriously considering him and Derrick Rose but chose Paul today. Both will eventually be done. Thanks for the request adventuretime135!

Merrill Kazanjian · December 19, 2011 at 1:15 am

@Mr204278 Hey, thank you so much!

Merrill Kazanjian · December 19, 2011 at 1:15 am

@videomakerman1232 The comment threads on my political step by steps get NASTY!!!!! Even worse than the Justin Bieber comment thread!!!!!! LOL

Merrill Kazanjian · December 19, 2011 at 1:16 am

@NickDragons7 You did it!!!!

Merrill Kazanjian · December 19, 2011 at 1:18 am

@20musicfreak20 I almost chose to do him and Blake Griffin, but went with Paul. Both will eventually be done!

Merrill Kazanjian · December 19, 2011 at 1:41 am

@bddblade Thank you so much!

Merrill Kazanjian · December 19, 2011 at 1:42 am

@SportsAddict2324 I definitely will (eventually). I almost drew him today.

tine47 · December 19, 2011 at 1:43 am

wow ive never thought of using a brush as a blending tool, thats definitly something im going to try out.
Anyways thanks for another amazing tutorial 😀

Merrill Kazanjian · December 19, 2011 at 1:47 am

@tine47 It has definitely helped me! A heads up before you try: 1.) Use a bristle brush 2.) It will take some time for the brush to get loaded 3.) Set aside a brush to use ONLY for pencil drawing. I hope that this helps! Thanks for watching and for the kind words!

Ricky Rubix · December 19, 2011 at 1:59 am
