I know, I know, I know, what is a forty something year old bloke doing drawing SpongeBob SquarePants. Well, I have just done a video talking about Art and Depression, which I hope to edit and upload soon, but in that video I talk about the importance of color in the healing process. 

Sometimes, when I'm doing a detailed colored pencil drawing that takes time and patience, I like to draw something using my markers and colored pencils combined. The reason I love it so much is because I get to splash color everywhere and the process is relatively fast. For me, it just helps to break up the long process of colored pencil art. I don't know why exactly, but I just get an overwhelming feeling to draw something really colorful, it really helps my mental state of mind, it is one of the reasons I absolutely love drawing fan art, Manga and Anime. I understand a lot of people don't class this as art, but it makes me happy when I am drawing it and this is why I do it

So I was looking through Pinterest for a cool image to draw and SpongeBob popped up and I just thought it looked so cool. I am not a SpongeBob fan and only one of my kids loved SpongeBob when they were younger, it was my Son and even then, he wasn't really a big fan. 

Speed drawing video of this drawing is available on my YouTube account, click the link to check it out.

Materials

For this drawing I used my Copic Markers, both Sketch and Ciao along with Prismacolor Premier, Faber Castell Polychromos and Caran d'Ache Luminance colored pencils. The paper I used was my faithful Strathmore Bristol Plate 500. I just love this paper, I was recently sent a pack from Strathmore showing the different types of paper they have available and it is amazing. the pack had samples and after viewing a few of the papers I have never actually used, it is so easy to see why Strathmore is my favourite paper.
