The Real Abandoned Overlook Hotel
Unlike the fictional Overlook Hotel in Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining, this hotel is really named the Overlook. The abandoned hotel is located in the small, wine growing town of Bernkastel-Kues in Germany. Other than it has been unoccupied for about 13 years, there is no information as to why the hotel was closed. All of the furniture remains and it looks as if everyone there simply left. There are rumors that the hotel is haunted. According to urban explorers who frequent the spooky site, cameras malfunction, sounds can be heard throughout the premises and items seem to move around the hotel by themselves.

WHAT THIS IS:
Last year around may, I hit 10k likes on facebook and I promised to create a new drawing video/tutorial of my drawing process, since my last one was like 8 years ago LOL;; It took a lot longer than I expected to complete because I had so much other work to do in the last half of the year, and I did not want to half ass the tutorial and waste everybody’s time, so it took until now to finish. I’m so sorry for the delay, but 74k more likes later (how the hell did that happen) it’s finally done!!
The video itself is a plain time lapse video with no annotation or anything, from blank canvas to completion. The tutorial link contains screenshots, explanations, links, and gifs walking through the whole drawing process. It also contains links to specific parts of the video so you don’t have to search the whole grueling 2 hour video for information. But the entire video is there in a slow ish speed so that you can look for whatever insignificant part of my drawing process for information if you need to.
So yes, this is dedicated to all my followers! Thank you guys for all your support over the years, I hope this gives some of you new things to try out in your drawing process or new tools to try your hands on! Work hard everyone :D
