What You’ll Be Creating Fallout 4 is here! We’ve decided to celebrate it by giving you a chance to draw your own Vault Boy. Step by step, you’ll learn how to build a complex silhouette out of ovals and curves. Maybe you’ll even learn how to draw your own Fallout character in this style? Let’s see! 1. Draw the Body Before we start, choose one of two ways of drawing (if you draw digitally, just skip this): Draw all the lines very subtly, and then finish them strongly when the drawing is done. Draw the lines as you want, then use the method from the last section of my tutorial How to Draw a Baby Fox . Step 1 Draw a circle. It doesn’t need to be perfect or very clean. Step 2 Take a measure from the radius of the circle and draw a line three times as long. Step 3 Draw a line at the bottom. The part on the right should be longer than the radius. Step 4 Let’s build the guide lines for the legs. First, draw a curve between the middle of the circle and the left end of the floor line. Step 5 Now draw a curve between the bottom of the circle and the left end of the floor line. Step 6 Find the half point of the middle radius-line. Draw a curve coming though it. Step 7 Use the same point to draw another curve. Step 8 “Close” the shape with the two last curves. Step 9 Draw the head circle, slightly smaller than the chest circle and more on the right.

In this tutorial I will introduce you to acrylic paints, setting you on the path to using a very exciting medium. Why Acrylic Paints? I have used acrylics since the early 1980s, and have found them easier to get to grips with than oils and watercolour. If you are starting to paint for the first time, I would recommend acrylics before any other painting materials. Acrylics are extremely versatile, and with them, you can… paint on almost any surface use them with water, and they become water resistant when dry (they are fast drying too) use them as you would oil paints (without the smell) and create thick brush strokes and textures on your canvas apply thin washes like watercolour create unique finishes that can only be …
