At first said, we're gonna use just 10 markers and one white jump. You can replace any of his colors with any other senior Hughes that you have, so let's start. 2. Pencil sketch: But first we're gonna make pencils kitsch. All the lines can be approximate spots and details can be drawn later with the color markers. Usually I don't use any liner in my work, but if you want to control a counter with the liner and erase the pencil line after that, as you can see, I'm drawing in this sketchbook spread. You can draw in your schedule because well, or you can use just a sheet of paper. Don't be afraid to split the object that you paint in two parts to put them into pages. Also, I'm gonna add some giraffe codes, sports on the left page justice ornament. 3. Toning sketch : Let's start with the lightest tones of grey. We will make a tonal drawing with gray markers as well. Start to add some color to our picture after that little life hawk. If it's hard to you to find the darkest and delighted sports on the picture, you can make your father reverence black and white to see them. Clearly, - your brush strokes should follow the direction off. The third graf It will give more realistic effect now. We're gonna apply some color in our illustration and show some texture with the dots and short strokes. Eyes are the most beautiful and picturesque apart off the animal giraffes I a pure black with some white highlights. 4. Adding colours and details: Let's apply some color on our giraffe that paint some sports on it. Don't forget to plant dark hues the lightest ones which you used before. Don't forget about giraffes years Tufts. Let's make the colors more bright, and the shadows are deeper. 5. Adding giraffe coat pattern and lettering: now we can apply some sports on our left page way can use our traditional technique from the lightest to the darkest tones of markers. - And now it's time for lettering. We can add a title or phrase here. - Thank you for watching. Maybe Dio I really hope you enjoyed it and see ism by.
