I start by holding the tip of the pencil and sketching a basic shape lightly.
Find a leaf you want to draw.
I taped mine down so my teacher could see the source image.
Basic shape starting to show.
Now, hold the pencil in the middle and sketch over correcting any mistakes and pressing a bit harder. Try not to rub out!
Add key features, like holes and veins. Stuff like that.
Going back over features.
Start to shade, see main lights and darks by squinting at your source.
Start to even it out.
Shade leaf tips.
If you want smooth out your shading to make it look better.
Look at these smudgy fingers. Bleugh
Applaud, give yourself a pat on the back and a quick treat.
Get your colours out. I,m using watercolour pencils.
Start to colour...
Add water, my paintbrush was a bit dirty... oops
The finished product! Please like and follow. This the first in a series.
I'm going to put a random thing at the end of each guide so yeah. I was watching WWE whilst doing this and I was laughing at how fake it is. 😆 Bye!
