The new theme of the week is people and places: plenty of fun to be had!
We start off with this stunning fine-liner illustration, which a good practice for comic illustrators-to-be.
You will need:
~ Graph paper or the template below
~ Black Fine-Liner
~ Watercolour paint or pencils
- Use the Astronaut print out or find some graph paper (you could use an old maths book).
- Use a black fine liner pen to draw your astronaut and fill in detail on your astronaut’s backpack, helmet and space suit. Do they have any zips, pockets or fastens?
- Create your space background by drawing stars, planets, satellites, rockets or even aliens!
- Imagine what your astronaut can see before them…the Milky Way, Venus, Craters of the moon…draw or paint this view using watercolour paints, ink or watered down paints.
- By slightly wetting a fine paintbrush with water you can create shading by gently painting over your black lines. You could practice on a separate sheet.
- If you have a silver pen, glitter, foil, metallic paper or star stickers add some sparkle and bring your space scape to life.
