What You’ll Be Creating Today we’ll draw a cute pony. It may look very simple, but it will be based on a realistic horse —just in less advanced form. You’ll learn how to build a “base” for a drawing and how to measure with lines. You just need: a pencil (the softer, the better) two sheets of paper (it can be a cheap copy paper) a ball-point pen or a marker (something that makes dark lines) You don’t need an eraser! 1. Draw the Body Step 1 Take one sheet of paper. Imagine an oval and sketch it very lightly with your pencil. Don’t draw it all with one line. Try to use short lines with gaps. This will be the chest Step 2 Divide the oval into halves. If you don’t know how, here’s a way: Find the center of the oval and mark it with a dot. Then draw one dot on the right and one on the left. Join them with a line to divide the oval into halves. Step 3 Draw a circle next to the oval. Make it a bit smaller. This is the bum of our pony Step 4 Now join up both shapes with curved lines. The body is finished! This is the back and the belly 2. Draw the Legs Step 1 First draw two lines to find the right place for the legs. The front one (here: left) should be in the front half of the chest-oval. The back one should be placed in the back half of the bum-circle. These lines don’t need to be super straight Step 2 Mark the places where both lines touch the body (1) and the ground (2). Can you see a line between them? Mark the middle of it. Notice that the right line is …

What You’ll Be Creating Drawing, at its most basic level, is intuitive to us. Even young children know how to transfer the image in their head into a set of pencil strokes, even though they may not resemble anything to others. When we grow up, we learn more about the world around us, and we learn how to depict it more accurately with lines. Lines seem to be almost interchangeable with drawing, but if you look carefully, you won’t find them anywhere in the real world. It’s us who pack the real objects into tight-fitting wrapping, because wrapping is all we can draw. Wrapping, the lines, is an approximation of reality, and, as it is with approximations, there may be many of them describing the same thing. Until you understand it, you’re forced to draw flatly, …
What You’ll Be Creating Inking comics can be fun, frustrating, or a mix of each. Working in vector has additional advantages, from not having to worry about resolution to being able to change the line art weight with the click of a button. We will look at some different ways in which you can ink a comic character with Adobe Illustrator. Using different Width Profiles in the Stroke panel we can give our line art a varied line weight.

What You’ll Be Creating In this tutorial I will introduce you to chalk pastels, what they are, and how to use them, setting you on the path to bright and colourful work that never fades and can be done at home or out and about. Why Pastels? I have to admit that pastels are my absolute favourite medium to work in. The vibrancy of the huge selection of colours is wonderful, while the detail you can achieve often surprises. You only need a piece of paper and a pastel and you are off, no other materials. You can quickly achieve a finished piece either at home or outside, and you don’t have to wait for anything to dry. For me, painting with pastels is about taking advantage of a series of subtleties, and I consider many aspects of the work in front of me: the different shades of pastel sticks and pencils I am working with the colour of paper or card I have chosen (should I let it shine through my painting or not?) the colours I have already laid down, and what effect I can …

What You’ll Be Creating Before starting, we need a word, or a sentence to work on. For this purpose I chose the expression: عيد سعيد ( Eid Sa’eed ). Its exact translation is “Happy Holiday”, and it can be used in the same way, as a non-denominational seasonal greeting.
