  • Hello my dudes. It's Saturday at 1:00 a.m, and I I'm about to begin the downward spiral into hell.
  • We're gonna have to be really quiet here because my parents are asleep, so it's time for some nice ASMR
  • I've wanted to make this video now for a couple months
  • But here's the thing: every time I sat down to film it
  • I came to the realization that, Joana, you're absolutely insane if you actually go through with this
  • But this weekend, this weekend
  • I told myself that I'm gonna do it if it's the last thing I do and this video might
  • Sound like quite the doozy, but I honestly believe that if I'm prepared, I can get through this
  • So what have I done to prepare for this video? You may be asking well number one: food
  • I know it sounds stupid, but guess what?
  • I'm a ravenous child. I go to school and all I'm thinking about is "When am I gonna be able to eat next?"
  • I roughly estimated that I would be hungry every four hours
  • So I had to make six
  • Relatively low calorie meals so that I didn't blow up my daily caloric intake. I mean butternut squash, spaghetti squash
  • Acorn squash, even that dreaded tuna sandwich; I'm willing to give it a second chance, scrambled tofu
  • Zucchini noodles, I made a lot of food, but it was all in the name of not being ravenous.
  • Number two. This one's obvious: sleep. How was I going to deal with not sleeping for 24 hours. I've never pulled an all-nighter
  • So this is gonna be quite the experience. Here's what I did: as soon as I got home from school on Friday
  • I took a shower cooked up a storm in the kitchen as aforementioned and went to bed at 4 p.m. That's right
  • I woke up 6 hours later at 10 p.m. My logic?
  • Hopefully if I made this video only a couple hours out of sleeping, there would be a chance that I might just pull through something
  • Something else that I need to mention before we begin is that
  • Obviously, there's no way that I can actually prove to you that I really did paint for 24 hours
  • I'm aware of that
  • And unfortunately, this is just one of those instances where you're just gonna have to believe me, and you know
  • What if this isn't the face of trustworthiness and accountability? I don't know. What is now right now. It's 12 a.m
  • On a normal day, if I had just woken up, I would be eating breakfast and that's what I'm doing now
  • I'm eating breakfast at 12 a.m
  • So I'm just gonna finish this tortilla and then we can start painting my dudes at exactly 1:04 a.m
  • This roller coaster began. The photo I was painting was this one. I found it in the bowels of Pinterest, and it's very aesthetic.
  • I'll put a link to it in the description box below
  • I saved myself some of the trouble by already having sketched out the
  • Proportions earlier that day; back to the painting. I started by doing an underpainting.
  • Personally, I don't really enjoy doing under paintings. I prefer to just paint right on the canvas
  • But I decided to give it a try since the internet pretty much screams at me every time I make a painting video to do
  • One. So we've just finished the under painting. I'm waiting for it to dry
  • We're gonna start on the background now, and I'm gonna use acrylic paint because I feel like it'll be easier to layer than oils.
  • I feel really bad for whoever this is. I could just
  • Imagine waking up one day and hearing that Joana Ceddia has butchered your face in paint form
  • It's only been 38 minutes of me doing this and I already want to stop. Anyways, let's keep going. Then,
  • It was time to tackle the sky. In the photo, the sky is incredibly light. It's almost white
  • So all I had to do was make it look like a smurf poo-pooed on the canvas and smeared it around very badly.
  • Moving more into the foreground, I then painted the grass
  • I started by blocking in some of the darker tones and then adding in the lighter ones.
  • I just sounded like a legit artist when I said that; TAKE THAT, CLAUDE MONET.
  • Hello. it's 4:00 a.m right now, so you know what that means. Time for my snack.
  • We're gonna eat some artichokes. Sounds disgusting, but I don't really have many more options. The painting, not gonna lie
  • I'm pretty surprised with how it's turning out. The grass looks really good for my standards at least.
  • Actually, this eating reminds me a little bit of a rabbit hole that I fell down on YouTube a couple days ago
  • I started to watch mukbang youtubers and let me just say
  • First of all, too much sauce, like WAY too much and second of all, can we stop with the slurping, please?
  • We're gonna be switching over to oils now. I'm excited because I love oils way more than acrylic paint.
  • It's much more satisfying, you know, and the paint doesn't dry in like 0.2 seconds
  • So you don't feel like you're waging a war with your canvas every single time you try to paint. Anyways, let's keep going
  • So, I set out some oil paints, particularly some earthy tones and the primary colors, and got to painting. Now,
  • I always like to start by painting the eyes. Should I have done that in this painting?
  • In hindsight, probably not because one: they didn't really end up looking cohesive with the painting, and number two:
  • It looked like her eyes were sucking you into the deep void of her colorless, cold, and dead soul.
  • Anyways, on went to the blue paint onto the canvas.
  • I was watching Daria Callie on YouTube the other day, AKA an artist who actually knows what she's doing, and she told me that the
  • Whites of your eyes are not actually white, but rather a milky gray color. How does that help you?
  • I don't know all I know is that it threw me for a bit of a loop. To paint the skin around her eyes
  • I used this ridiculously miniscule detail brush that I brought from Michael's the other day
  • It literally has like three hairs on it and it's excellent for getting in all those nooks and crannies. When I got to the nose,
  • Things got a bit sticky. She looked lopsided
  • She looked like a sad contestant on Botched. The forehead arrived with the ferocity of Debbie on Boxing Day
  • I have to admit, the model in the photo has a very rectangular forehead.
  • Maybe it's just a trick of the light, or maybe it's just cocaine but I did struggle with it a considerable amount.
  • It was 7:23 a.m. When the Sun was awoken by my madness
  • What? I kept on painting. Her lips were the color of a Maybelline commercial "Easy, Breezy, Beautiful,
  • 'I-just-killed-my-ex-and-smeared-his-blood-on-my-lips'"
  • Ew. Good morning my dudes. So, it's around 8 a.m. right now, and it's time for my second snack.
  • I'm gonna eat some acorn squash now. The painting is looking kind of strange, not gonna lie.
  • I think it's cuz she doesn't have any hair so she kind of looks like Karlie Kloss,
  • But if she was ten times more frightening. I have to comment on the fact that I'm doing everything wrong.
  • There is no technique whatsoever here. Honestly, if I went into an art class and started doing my thing
  • I'm pretty sure the teachers would pass out. It's really starting to hit me right now
  • I don't know if you can tell but I'm running on fumes and we're only eight hours in. Bon Appetit!
  • It was time to paint the hands, and the rest of her exposed skin.
  • I have to say, the hands in this photo are in really weird positions. It's like some contortionist type stuff. Nevertheless,
  • I painted her left hand quite quickly,
  • (Don't ask me how long it took to figure out which of her hands was the left one)
  • But her other hand put up more of a challenge. In the photo,
  • It looks like a Velociraptor claw. So it was quite challenging to paint it without making it look like frog hands. Other things
  • It looks like: the hand of a sloth, his person with only three fingers, the digits of EVERY Pokemon EVER
  • Okay, I'll stop. Okay, so we finished all the skin. We're nine hours in, fifteen left to go.
  • I'm gonna start on the clothes next, and then we'll move on to the hair.
  • Finally, I'm gonna have to find a way to make it all dry really quickly so that I can put all the grass and stuff
  • Overtop of it cuz the photo has like greenery and shrubs intertwined all over it. So I'll have to figure that out.
  • I'm falling asleep. Let's move on. It was already 10:20 a.m. I started painting her shirt, and I was honestly doing pretty well
  • If I do say so myself
  • I had gotten a sudden boost of energy, but for now I would like to give a quick show-and-tell presentation of the songs
  • I was listening to. Number one: Eye of the Tiger by Survivor.
  • This isn't a song you would probably listen to while painting, because it makes you irrationally angry, but I paint better when I'm angry
  • So it worked in my favor. Actually, I work better when I'm angry in general.
  • Fun Fact: When I was in grade 3, my school would hold these plays every year to get parents to funnel more money into
  • the principal's pockets.
  • It worked because the prospect of being in the Lion King
  • Really did rile all those ten year olds up. Now, to get a spot in the play, you had to audition by singing a song
  • Of your choice. Guess what song I chose. That's right.
  • EYE OF THE TIGER!!! My performance was magnificent!
  • Anyways, thought that was cute, but let's get back to the video. Number two: Dreams by Fleetwood Mac
  • I just realized how long I've been sleeping on Fleetwood Mac
  • And I must admit I am heavily
  • ashamed. Their songs are amazing and the group themselves gives me Aadams family vibes and I'm here for it. Numero 3:
  • Holding Out for a Hero by Bonnie Tyler. The first time I heard this song. I thought it was called "Holding Out for Herpes".
  • That's it. That's all I have to say. Number 4: Another Brick in the Wall by Pink Floyd.
  • I wonder if this qualifies me to buy that Pink Floyd band tee from Brandy
  • Melville, like every white girl ever, even though I've never been to one of their concerts. Number 5:
  • She's a Maniac by Flashdance;this song is really good cuz I am, in fact, a maniac. And Number 6:
  • This song is actually by Willow Smith. It's called Why Don't You Cry and it's really groovy.
  • Willow Smith is actually a very underrated singer, in my opinion.
  • Her voice is beautiful, and all I can say is that her hair whipping days are over.
  • *heavy sigh* It was at this point that things took a nosedive. It was 12:10 pm
  • I had just eaten my third meal of the day, and the post-eating tired spell had just began to set in. I was losing
  • Steam; it was time for me to take matters into my own hands. That's right, ladies and gents,
  • I indulged in the finer things in life and took a caffeine pill. Needless to say, I was on fire again.
  • I sat down with a new determination in my eyes
  • I painted her orange pants or skirt, apron, picnic blanket, whatever you want to call it, and I went insane with this fiery hue
  • It's 4:18 right now, and I've just finished whatever the heck that is.
  • I tried to follow the shapes in the photo as much as possible, but not gonna lie, they are some very weird shapes.
  • So now we're gonna tackle her luscious locks.
  • My mom came by earlier, and said that she kind of looks like Christina Aguilera and I have to admit she does. Funnily enough,
  • I'm still not hungry. I don't know what stars alligned,
  • I don't know what miracle was cast upon me, but I'm not hungry and that is an anomaly. So yeah, let's keep going. Then
  • I started on the hair. I hate painting hair; it never works for me. I LOATHE it.
  • I tried what everyone has ever told me to do: put in the dark parts and then add in the light.
  • Did it work ? Nop. Was I fed up? Yap. This is frustrating me a lot. Like, a severe amount.
  • I'm irritable, tired, and hungry.
  • It's a triple threat if might say so myself, you know
  • I could be doing so many other things than this right now. I could be at Coachella listening to Tame Impala right now
  • Actually, I don't think I've ever pay to get secondhand high
  • in the middle of the desert while half naked. And then, my good friend, trial-and-error
  • Stepped in to wreak havoc. In an effort to save her hair and stop it from looking like spaghettified carpet,
  • I used my detailed brush. I tried using yellow, I tried just blending it all together;
  • Nothing worked. At the end. i just settled with this and got to painting her SOMBRERO!
  • Actually, this isn't a sombrero is it? it's a sun hat.
  • Sorry, if I offended everyone and their uncle. Anyways,
  • I like to imagine what this painting would look like if I had a fedora, or maybe a bandana
  • What about a beanie?
  • Eventually, I finished the Hat and it was time for me to focus on the things in the foreground, like the grass and flowers
  • However, here's the issue: oil paint takes ages to dry time is not a luxury at this moment
  • So I would just have to paint over it and hope for the best
  • Obviously, I did everything in my power to try to dry it as much as possible.
  • I even waited one full hour to give it as much time to dry. At 9:41,
  • I decided that I would wait no longer if I was to finish this painting in time,
  • So I ate some zucchini noodles and butternut squash and got to finishing the painting.
  • It was all finishing touches from here on out. The face was bothering me slightly,
  • So I worked on deepening her eye sockets and adding some dimension to the face. One more hour went by.
  • It was the home stretch now. I painted the grass
  • I thought this would be a disaster, because the background on which I was painting it was still wet,
  • But, for some reason, it allowed me to make these really delicate and blurry blades of grass.
  • I was a fan of it. I painted the dandelions
  • The painting was starting to come together and I was LIVING. I forgot how ugly the hair looked, and went ham on those flowers.
  • I must admit, I surprised myself here
  • I thought it was gonna look dreadful, but it didn't for my standards at least. The last hour arrived.
  • I was still busy painting, and I was actually really happy with it. For the first time in a while,
  • I was actually happy of a painting I made.
  • A rarity, if I might say so myself. I could not be stopped.
  • I could not be tamed, Miley Cyrus, 2019. 20 minutes left. I was not gonna halt my efforts here,
  • No, no NO. The piece was coming together and I was excited. TWO MINUTES LEFT, MY TROOPS!
  • I could not wait for this to be over, but I was having too much fun painting.
  • One last brushstroke, one last dabble of paint, one last beating of the devil out of my paintbrush.

JOANA SWEATER NOW AVAILABLE: https://hellojuniper.com/channel/UCkin59aR57-RgqvN04jHSIg/p/1865852518461

Hello there. This is your captain speaking. Before we land, I need to tell you all about why this video was obnoxiously late this week. I finished filming Sunday morning, and then I said:

“Great! Everything will be perfect and I will have the entirety of Sunday to edit, study for Calculus and finish my Chemistry homework.”

That’s funny.

Because that’s exactly what didn’t happen.

Well, for starters, I neither studied for Calculus nor finished Chemistry. The reason? Because my laptop was being a turtle and taking forever to import all the footage, which then lead it to be extremely slow during the editing process. All of this came to a climax Monday at 2 AM when my computer:

1. Screamed
2. Shut off
3. Told me its storage was full

Now mind you, I edit on a MacBook Air that has only 250 GB of storage, so I kind of had it coming. However, I was determined to make it work. I purged my computer; I did some spring cleaning and deleted all the useless garbage on it except for the video footage.

It still wasn’t enough space.

So what did I do now?


And then I went to the apple store the next morning with m parents and bought a computer with a phat amount of storage.

Anyways, that’s all and I hope you enjoyed the video. Actually, you are obligated to have enjoyed it because it was a pain in the butt to edit.
