Amazing Captain America Coloring Pages For Your kids

g'day viewers, my name's graeme stevenson, and i'd like to invite you to come on a journey of creativity and learning and adventure through the series colour in your life. there's an artist in every family throughout the world. lots of times there's an artist deep down inside all of us as well. so grab your kids, your brothers, your sisters, your aunties, uncles, and mums and dads and come and see how some of the best artists do what they do. (music plays) (graeme) well hi folks, and welcome back to colour in your life. well we are in hollywood, in california today, and we are at the studio of a mr rob
prior. rob, (rob) how you doing, man? (graeme) welcome to the show. this is fantastic (rob) pleased to be here. (graeme) this man here, as far as i can see and everybody else i think in this country, is the rock n roll star of art in the united states is the best way to possibly describe what rob does. he actually works with some of the leading rock bands in america and also the leading hip hop groups as well tech n9ne, (rob) yep. (graeme) for a start. tech's (rob) my dearest friends. (graeme) a really good friend of yours isn't he? (rob) yeah, he's cool. (graeme) and one of the leading hip hop people in the world. linkin park, what are some of the other groups as well? (rob) flo rida, zakk wylde, chi town,
there's so many - i mean, jay zee. (graeme) bruce springsteen. (rob) yeah. (graeme) but when you see what rob does, which is the incredible part, he actually uses both of his hands to produce his work which is really quiet amazing. and they are absolutely dynamically stunning pieces is about the best way i can describe it. (rob) thank you. (graeme) with clients like george lucas for a start, for the first time i've actually got some notes with me because the man has done so much with his career over a long, long time period of time. you've also worked with marvel. (rob) marvel, dc, (graeme) disney. (rob) disney, dungeons and dragons.
(graeme) and you've put together video games as well. (rob) i did, i worked on ghost rider, darkness, (graeme) is it sporn you were did some stuff with spawn. (rob) i did spawn, spawn the impaler, i've done comic books. i've worked with just about every comic company out there. (graeme) that's amazing. (rob) i'm finishing up my last graphic novel that i will ever do a full graphic novel called blood merchant, for benaroya pictures, (graeme) aha. (rob) mike betaroya. (graeme) so how did you come about wanting to use two hands? (rob) when i was ten years old, i was being trained to be an artist my whole life, my family line are artists but none by profession. i thought the same
thing that every ten year old thinks - what if i used my right hand? (graeme) yeah. (rob) no ten year old thinks that. and so i switched, i switched my left hand to be my dominate hand and i retaught myself how to write. i refused for the next two years refused to make my right hand my dominate hand. (graeme) aha. (rob) i learned to catch, i play guitar, so i play guitar with both hands. (graeme) wow. (rob) and then one day, i was published pretty young, so i had an international cover due, and math homework due (graeme) yeah. (rob) and i was like - i've got to go faster, so i picked up two brushes and i was like oh i can do this. and then i realised that i could actually do my math homework and paint
(graeme) same time - i think the painting won out in the end didn't it? (rob) you know at that point, yeah. but yeah, so that was it. i often paint two paintings or three paintings, or four paintings at one time. (graeme) and we've actually got some footage of rob working on stage with tech n9ne, and some of the other guys in the hip hop bands as well which is really quite amazing. i mean what he does on the stage is really quite dynamic, and he moves around all over the place - paints backwards, paints upside down i think sometimes as well. but today, we're very privileged to actually have two fantastic companies that are sponsoring the show.
princeton art brushes, which is the largest manufacturer of art brushes in the united states, i mean potentially the world. and also royal talens from from the netherlands, who makes a huge amount of products as well. i mean tell us something just their products? (rob) the thing about princeton, is i use i use a brush called umbria, umbria catalyst. (graeme) yeah. (rob) but the umbria's my my favourite because it just holds its shape so well and i abuse the hell out of my brushes. if you watch any clips or even see me today i'm just like - beat the hell out of them. and no other brush honestly, no
other brush can put up with that. i've never had a brush like, then go back to form, you know, and not fall apart. and with you know, royal talens, the colors are amazing. the consistency of it is just perfect (graeme) yeah. (rob) and they have different things like inks. so i can't say good enough things about them, it's you know. (graeme) it's amazing, a huge amount of ranges as far as the products concerned: (rob) oh, absolutely. (graeme) inks, watercolors, acylics, oils - it's fantastic. but you're going to be using the watercolor pencils today. (rob) i'm using watercolor pencils and gouache. (graeme) okay. (rob) i might be using some ink. half the time i don't know
what i'm gonna do. i mean if it's around me when i'm painting, i'll pick it up. (graeme) yeah. (rob) you know, if there's dirt there i'll probably use that, you know. (graeme) yeah, when you see rob work you'll understand what i'm talking about. he listens to music continually, consistently. (rob) i cannot paint without it. (graeme) literally, if he's not listening to music of some sort he actually stops like a robot. but he's gonna have ear phones in, he's going to be listening to music and he's still gonna be able hear me talk while he's doing what he's doing, but it's an essential part of your creativity. (rob) yes, i know, and you guys come in and go: do you have to have music? ahh, well either that i could just stand there the whole time
(graeme) yeah. (rob) so. (graeme) yeah, well when you see you'll understand cause it's really quite amazing. but what i'm going to do is, i'm going to get out of here. i'm still going to ask you some questions as we go along. (rob) sure. (graeme) you're going to show us how you create these amazing pieces and how you use these fantastic products at the same time. (rob) ah, yes. (graeme) i'm looking forward top it. (rob) fantastic, brother. (graeme) okay, rob. well you've got a pretty iconic gentleman up there. (rob) yes. (graeme) one of the twenty seven club. (rob) yes. (graeme) you wouldn't have to guess i think, that's jimmy hendrix, and you're very famous for painting very famous people.
and you've got some watercolor paper there, and you've got some watercolor, talen watercolor pencils. (rob) yep. (graeme) and you're doing doing what you do which is work in two hands. tell me, tell me the process? (rob) you know, when i work in two hands, a lot of times i'll what i'll do is one will hit a higher part, or just a different color. (graeme) yeah. (rob) i can figure out where i'm going to blend ahead of time, so when i'm doing it that way i know what one hand is doing one thing and blending it in, and the other is just laying a base. (graeme) but you also use, you use
windex. (rob) i do, windex tends to chew paint. it tends to, instead of water - water will move a paint around, were windex will eat the paint and make it drip. gravity then works with it better. so i make a line like that, and i spray it with windex and you can watch it just eat the paint. but if i take water, say if i go over here it doesn't do anything. so the difference is one will chew the paint through and the other will move the paint
around. so the other thing i'm doing is i'm actually going to paint this with gouache, but i'm laying down a little bit of a color base with watercolor pencil, so i know that i can go in and have a base laid down where my colors are actually going to be. so i'm creating a map for myself. i use to be purely a photo realist and then i, with the onset of photoshop up and all of that is like why, why would you do that? so
i also got to a point were i like mistakes; i love mistakes, because mistakes are what brings life to a painting to me. if i feel it's getting too perfect i'll do something really crazy and i'll throw paint at it, or if anybody watches videos of me i'll spit paint, or spit water - not paint. talens is a fantastic paint, but you're not suppose to eat it. (graeme) yeah. rob's actually listening to his music now so, so he's actually listening to me and listening to the music. he actually responds very dramatically to what the music doing, and he sort of gets into these zones
occasionally. he calls it blacking out, and he just starts to work and music kicks in and away he goes. but one of my heroes is a friend of yours, neal degrasse tyson, and he said: i'd like to get into your brain. (rob) yeah, he is a god, he's a trip. i was at san diego comic-con, and i was on stage with him and listening to his theories on star wars, and lightsabers and stuff is hilarious. (graeme) yeah. (rob) it's hilarious. (graeme) you do like about sixteen comic conventions a year. (rob) i can't make it to all of them, but
i try and hit a lot of main ones. (graeme) i can see what you mean about getting those princeton brushes a workout. (rob) oh, that is an understatement. i do things while that next comment was really going to be: i do things with these brushes nobody should do. (graeme) i can just see now this rock n roll kicking into that earpiece - it has to be. (rob) it's true. (graeme) that's great but. (graeme) the spontaneity is quite extraordinary, what rob achieves with
two hands and two brushes is just quite amazing, it really is. we're very privileged to be here. looking at your earlier work, you were really disciplined as far as the reality of the technique (rob) yes. (graeme) is concerned. and then it was your wife, bev (rob) it was. (graeme) who basically said let your hair down, so to speak. (rob) yeah, this is how i've painted pretty much my whole life in my studio, and i was getting burnout doing photorealism. i personally needed to have something that was gonna challenge me a
bit more. and my wife came to me and she said why don't you paint for everybody like you paint in your studio. and i was like, nobody wants to see that. and that's kinda how it started, i mean this is how i've personally always painted for myself. (graeme) yeah. (rob) and my wife, who is much smarter than i am, knew enough to say, you know what, don't, don't quite art because if you quite art its like quitting breathing, you know after you've done it for so
long it's just ingrained in you - it's what you know. so i did that and i switched over to this crazy whacked out style that i have. (graeme) you've actually done a few album covers for tech n9ne. (rob) tech n9ne, i've done album covers for blue oyster cult, wow, a tonne of people. (graeme) those tech n9ne images but are just fantastic, (rob) oh, thank you so much. (graeme) like another world. (rob) thank you so much. yeah, well you know, it's funny cause in meeting tech, i had talked to a producer who said
you really need to meet tech. it would be great if you guys worked together. you know, me being me, i was like i don't know, maybe. let me meet him, let me see if it's even gonna work. (graeme) yeah. and we met at bob's big boy in toluca lake, (graeme) okay. (rob) and ah, he came in and he just started talking about his ideas and we just hit it off. (graeme) amazing, and you've become good friends since. (rob) oh yeah, yeah,tech is - he's great. but he probably fills four or five shows a year with him now. he's really the person that
kinda got me to go on stage. i'd been talking about it with one of the other owners of strange music, travis o'guin, and i was like - no, i don't know, maybe, maybe not. no. and then tech came to me he's like well don't worry about it cause i have terrible stage fright and (graeme) yes, so he lied. (rob) yeah, and you know, he goes don't worry the lights will be in your eyes. and i was like, oh, okay, so i walk out on stage and - he lied. (graeme) i can see everybody. (rob) you know, it's like
wait a minute. and so i'm on stage and i'm thinking to myself i can't - i can't do this. he's my friend, i can apologise to him. i can't do this after all. and i turned around - and my wife will disagree with me, she will say she was just standing there. cause when i tell this story you know, she's like - i didn't really do that. she did. (graeme) yeah. (rob) she was standing there with arms crossed, so i was like, face my wife or face the crowd. take the crowd. (graeme) and actually we've got a picture of bev, that you've painted as well
that we're just (rob) yes. (graeme) screening up too. she's a beautiful woman. (rob) ah, thank you, thank you very much. my wife's cool. (graeme) so you were telling the viewers a funny story about a mate of yours, and he said something about a chicken head? what's the story with that? (rob) so there was a publisher, (graeme) yeah. (rob) he's actually a friend, and he called me up. he didn't know me at the time and he said prior, you know, i want to hire you to do my three book series but i know you hide things in your paintings. so if you hide anything i'm going to fire you. and i was like dude, what would i do
hide a chicken head in every page? so i did. in fact when i, when i got to the second issue, i did a double splat page, which is two pages that open up into a long painting. and if you turn the entire book sideways, its a giant chicken head and so, on the third issue he calls me up and he goes, you know i'd fire you right now but i'm too busy looking for your chicken heads. and there for it stuck. and had i known that a chicken head
would be what stuck with my fan base, i'd have picked something way cooler than a chicken head. (graeme) you've also done some amazing pieces of the series game of thrones, there's some very spectacular series out there these days, and we are in the centre of hollywood. one of a gentleman called john snow, well he's one of the characters in the actual (rob) yeah, it's one of my favourite shows on the air as well. so you know, painting, painting it and getting to put a little bit of of my spin on them: i love it. (graeme) and even
a lot of the star wars characters that you've done, i mean i can almost guarantee that somebody's watching this show has actually seen your work somewhere, somehow, either on a book, or an album cover, or somewhere cause i know i'd seen it many years ago myself. star wars, with - you did one of all the villains. the sith lords. (rob) oh yeah. (graeme) that's pretty cool. i have come here today rob, to tell you i'm your father. (rob) wow. that's not weird. (graeme) so you were six. yes, we start young. so not only are you a famous artist yourself, but you
actually know some other very, very famous artists (rob) oh, (graeme) as well. (rob) yeah, i know a lot of artists that are just amazing and dorian vallejo, is just he's just an amazing artist. you know, to me it's a very cool little tight community once you get in there. art as with any arts at all, music, acting, whatever it is, can sometimes get petty and that's a shame because i think every, i think art should all just stick together and you know, should all
be - i'm not saying one giant happy family cause that's never gonna happen, but i do think that there needs to be more trading secrets and more talking and all of that. there's so much to learn from so many people there's just not enough time in the world for it. (graeme) who would you say influenced you in your career? (rob) well, my dad, who is an amazing artist, really influenced me. there's an artist named bob heindel, who is who when he was with us
was known as the modern day gar. and drew struzan, another, another big influence you know, growing up, cause he did so many of the iconic movie posters. (graeme) yeah, and even some of the work you've done yourself sort of harks back to the bygone era of movies with boris karloff, (rob) oh. (graeme) and you know, nosferatu the original vampire movie. i love old, old monster movies. and by the way, graeme i have to say after seeing your amazing art,
i'll fire it right back at you: when did you start? (graeme) a long time ago - five years of age. but you must have started about the same age yourself didn't you? (rob) yeah, i was like basically out f the womb hen my parents were having me do art. but you know just because you or i started so young, doesn't mean that you have to be young to start, cause you don't. you can start at any age and accomplish whatever you want to accomplish. (graeme) so in comparison with the gouache, obviously the inks give you
a lot more flow with your color. (rob) the one thing i really like about the ecoline inks, is the fact that they're so bright and they really just pop. (graeme) you were saying before one of the concerts you did with tech n9ne, that you had a business man from saudi arabia walk up to you at the end of one of the shows. (rob) yeah, and he brought, he bought a painting from me which i won't say the price, but i will say it set, it set the standard for my pricing today.
and if he watches this: thank you! you know, sometimes artists just need one or two really lucky breaks (graeme) yeah. (rob) to, to happen to them. but you know, really at the end of the day, and i wish i would have come up with this saying but i did not, i just am repeating it. luck is just preparation meets opportunity. it really is preparation; it is knowing your craft and knowing it well.
(rob) so i think now this painting is missing one thing. (graeme) what's that? (rob) that is you coming over here and painting on it. so if you wouldn't mind stepping in here. (graeme) what do you want me to do? (rob) you can do one of two things - i'm going to let you pick. you can start doing some of this with these little white specks. (graeme) little white doddley dads. (rob) or you can get in here and just do a little bit of tweaking on that. (graeme) i'll do this on the side here. (rob) done! (rob) alright. (graeme) working with the master. okay, i'll grab some of these princeton brushes,
pretty cool. i don't, i'm sort of trying to look at what rob's doing so that i don't destroy any of the continuity that he's got. (rob) continuity - anyone out there watching this, please drink your beer and laugh at that statement. there is no true continuity because it's all just fun. (graeme) instead of the three amigos, it's the two amigos. (rob) it's the two amigos. woohoo! (rob) do it. do it. (graeme) that looks really cool. (rob) you know, i am missing one thing. (graeme) what would that be?
(rob) a chicken head (graeme) okay. (rob) right there. (graeme) god, look at it. (rob) and ah, (graeme) voila! fantastic buddy. that is brilliant - absolutely brilliant. (rob) thank you for having me on your show, man. (graeme) okay guys, what an amazing day with an incredibly talented man. you are the super star that everyone makes you out to be - absolutely. (rob) i don't know about that, but thank you, sir. (graeme) this is an artist who's a rock n roll star in america - there's no two ways about it. but it's been fantastic, mate, your work is absolutely brilliant. now if somebody wants to catch up with you
and see what you're doing, your website is? (rob) rob prior dot com, and you can see most of my things there. you can see i have somebody else updating it so they put all of my dates and stuff on there. and instagram is: prior two art, p r i o r number two, art a r t, and that's twitter and instagram, and my facebook is rob prior official. (graeme) absolutely, come in and see a journey of an amazing talented human being, no two ways about it. also, before we go, we obviously would love to thank princeton brushes and also royal talens for what they have done for rob. they make some
fantastic products. come in and see us at colour in your life dot com dot au. and rob, thank you so much for having us here today - it was hilarious. and remember guys - until we meet again: make sure you put some color in your life. we'll see you next time. bye now guys. see you!
