DRAWING MY FRIENDS INTO VIDEO GAME CHARACTERS!


[ROSS] Aaaaah! Hey guys! Welcome to another episode of RossDraws and today’s my birthday! Yes, it’s my birthday! I thought it’d be really fun if I invited some of my good friends over — maybe I can draw us into video game characters, Disney Princesses, or villains or something- [DOORBELL RINGS] [GASP] Oh my god! I don’t have a doorbell, but I wonder who it is! [GASP] YAY!!! AHH! [GROUP CHEERING IN EXCITEMENT] HAPPY BIRTHDAY! [ROSS] Oh my g-Milo-wait! Wait, you’re my dog! What?! [ANTHONY] Yeah, let’s not worry about that Anthony!! Let’s go, let’s make a video! Awesome! So, we have AJ, Mizzie, and Dagamii! And then we have me, so [GROUP CLAPPING] Yay! [ROSS] But- I thought it would be really fun if maybe I could turn us into like a team of characters, you know? Like a video game team of characters that would be really cool. Maybe, we can be.. Team Color Dodge! [GROUP CHEERING] Yaay! Team Color Dodge! I like it! I like it And in every team, there needs to be like a DPS, there needs to be a healer, and there needs to be a tank. What roles do you guys wanna take? [GROUP ATTEMPTING TO SPEAK OVER ONE ANOTHER] [ROSS] No, I want to be DPS! [MIZZIE] Wait! You can be a healer~ [ROSS] What! I don’t wanna be a healer, I wanna be DPS! [MIZZIE] Whaa- [DAGAMII] Well, it’s Ross’ birthday We should let him be DPS [ROSS] YEEES [ROSS CLAPPING] YAY [DAGAMII] But I’ll also be DPS [MIZZIE] Mmmmm, what! [ROSS] Well we all can’t be DPS! Anthony is the biggest guy here, I think, right? [ANTHONY] Oh yeah, sure. Look at that [ROSS] I don’t know, maybe So maybe you be the tank [ANTHONY] Alright, absolutely [ROSS] DPS, tank-oh! You’re the healer! Yaaaaaaaaaay! [MIZZIE] Okay, fine. I have healing energy, healing energy! Our outfits need to be more cohesive, right? I feel like Power Rangers and Sailor Moon they all have like cool, cohesive outfits, so uh give me a second Ah! Oh my god! Woah! [ANTHONY] I got a gun [ROSS] You have a gun! [MIZZIE] You got a gun? Try shooting it- What! Wooooah! Oooh! I love it! Now let’s take the poses for the painting! One, two, three! Protect us! Mizziemie, heal us! [MIZZIE] Oh okay, how do I heal you guys? Arrrghh! [LAUGHING] Subscribe to our Patreon! Milo! We got it! Yaaay! [CLAPPING] Oh! Woah! We took the reference photo for our
painting and this is what we got! Oh! The whole gang, look at that! Yeah, so this is team color dodge. We have the Dagamii with the lint roller weapon Mizziemie looking cute, and then we have Robotpencil with the tennis ball cannon. Oh! And I forgot about Milo What happened to Dagamii’s leg? Aaaah! Oh my god, what is going on over here? Alright, let’s make Robotpencil extra, extra big Before, after [LAUGHTER] Oh my god, this is a weird positioning for my head. Aw! Mizzie always looks so
pretty let’s give her like a lot of awesome hair like- Let’s make Dagamii’s hair extra, extra blue Ooh that’s pretty! The biggest lint roller in the world! Now
she can pick up every single Milo hair! Right now I’m trying to design the team
composition- maybe our eyes can start from the left,
read to the right! So it’s like a nice flow. There’s a lot to
do, I’m just gonna work on it and I’ll check back soon! Hey guys, welcome back and here’s the
progress of Team Color Dodge so far! This is before.. and this is after. Yeah so
we’ve come a really long way from the original, maybe it’d be cool if we were like on
top of some street poles watching the city, you know, looking over on what
villains we need to take down. We have Milo! Just chilling in the clouds, haha Put it like that- Aaaw Milo! We’re gonna take these little arms- Like a really cool jetpack- Milo: the flying tech dog! When you’re trying to design a group of characters,
you have to have elements that connect them all together! You know, to make it
cohesive. Sailor Moon, that group has a bunch of sailor outfits, has those
tiaras. Power Rangers has all those suits, so I thought we can make a color dodge
emblem! I’m gonna give one to Mizzie, we’re gonna give me one, give Sarah an inverted one! Oooh~
and now we’re team color Dodge! Yay! Let’s get Dagamii
more of like a DPS weapon. Okay, better than that big lint
roller. It’s looking pretty cool, right? I’m just going to attack this thing and
I’ll check back soon! Hey guys! [GROUP] It’s color dodge time! Ah man, here we go! Oooh! You wanna battle? Let’s battle! Ross Draws! The color dodge wizard Dagamii! The painting slasher Robotpencil, the tank Mizzie-Medic! Need some healing? Mmm, oh [MIZZIE] I got you guys! Heal! Heaaaaaaal! [GROUP SINGING] Happy birthday dear Ross~ Happy birthday to you, woo! [CLAPPING] [DAGAMII] Make a wish! [GROUP CLAPPING AND CHEERING] [MIZZIE] So Ross, what’d you wish for? I wish that Milo had superpowers! [GROUP] Ooh, okay !!! Aahhh!

video’s question is: what role would you be in a video game? [ANTHONY] DPS [ROSS] DPS [MIZZIE] Wha, I was actually gonna say DPS. I’m actual DPS [ROSS] Heal us, daddy [LAUGHTER] [MIZZIE] Wha?!

    BTW BTW BTW – I'M GIVING AWAY A TABLET IN NEXT WEEK'S VIDEO. LETS GO

  2. Is probably be a healer because IM THE ONLY ONE IN MY FRIENDSHIP GROUP THAT BRINGS WARM CLOTHES AND ONES FOR OTHERS

  3. Hey Ross! I've been a big fan since you've started. You're the one who first inspired me to draw. I've been want to start in digital art for a 10 years at this point but sadly I just dont have the money. I saw your post on your Instagram and was hoping that maybe I would win. Its probably not going to happen but I'm hoping anyways.

  4. Everyone like to be doing the damage LOL. in some games there are healers that can also do alot of damage so thats what i'd like to be a DPS Healer so i can carry the team ahahahah

  5. I always gravitate towards an archer character. But I'm pretty passive and avoid conflict as a person, so maybe an archer healer?

  6. I think I would be karma from lol
    Just because I like supporting with a little dps 😏 and it's nice when karma hit others 😂

  7. well, since everyone is picking DPS I will be the BUFFER I got you guys covered with spells and I will watch your six 🙂

  8. I have arrived very late but I hope you had a great time on your birthday, I really like how you draw it is a great inspiration I would like to draw like you, I love your style keep it up 💕

  9. Being DPS is fun sometimes, but it can be a lot of pressure. Thanks to Overwatch and now League as well, I learned that I favor being a marksman healer. Being a safe distance from the enemies but also being able to lay down some damage, and keep your teammates alive is a great feeling, in my opinion.

  10. I recently joined your discord. Wondering if you ever hang out and meet viewers? Itd be awesome to meet you if you ever do that.

  11. I would be the executer, like a rage mode destroyer person that comes out as a special attack to take out a lot of bad guys if they overwhelm the player.

  12. Here is my essay on what game character and why:
    As an energetic and generally happy and genki person, rekon I'd be a fragile speedster, always running around with lightning under my feet, but my running around similar to real life is bound to be stopped by falling over and face planting. I think that I'd have electric as my element, since it is often associated with high speeds, and the idea of running around at the speed of light while throwing bolts of electricity sounds super cool and fun.
