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.

What You’ll Be Creating In this tutorial we are going to look at the process behind creating a comic page. We will focus on how you can break down the idea of your comic into a visual script, and making it easy and fun to read by using different types of panels and perspectives. Working in Adobe Illustrator we can create a fast and flexible workflow by using clipping masks to create our comic panels, and the Effect menu to make wavy panels in no time. 1. Creating a Storyboard When you have a character and an idea of what you want to tell, it might be tempting to just dive in and start drawing. If you take extra care planning the story and the structure of the comic, you will avoid drawing yourself into a dead end. Step 1 It is hard to make a comic without having something to tell, so the first step is to come up with some sort of series of events.
What You’ll Be Creating In today’s tutorial we’ll be drawing a delicate and expressive female portrait with hair decorations, such as flowers and a feather. The theme of this drawing is natural beauty and stylization for Renaissance art. We’ll be using ink liners and watercolor pencils. What You Will Need White paper (any kind you are comfortable with) Lead pencil for creating the sketch (I recommend HB type) Eraser (for any excess pencil lines) Ink liners (I’ll be working with 0.1 mm, 0.2 mm, 0.3 mm, 0.5 mm and 0.8 mm line width types) Pencils (I use three colors: lilac, blue and pink, but you can add more tints) Undertaking a historical study of the Renaissance period
What You’ll Be Creating A child’s imagination is a precious thing of wonder. I believe it should be nurtured and encouraged whenever possible. One of the most common forms children use to express their imagination is drawing their fantasies. What better way to encourage it than by placing them within their very own imaginary world! This project is intended to be a collaboration between a parent and child. Start by working together to plan it out. The parent’s portion is to take photos of the child and set up the files in Photoshop. The kid’s portion includes the original drawing and then placing the scanned layer into the scene, and even some lightweight digital painting and illustration. This is a very fun project than can be easily repeated any number of times. It’s likely that once your child sees just how they look in their drawings, they will want to explore different ideas too! Use this time…
