1. Star Constellation Girls INTRODUCTION: have you always wanted to draw faces but told yourself that drying faces is just too difficult. Doubt, fear and overwhelming information always used to stop me. But then I took the plunge and started my art journey over six years ago. Oh, hey there. I'm Tammy and I created, like, pixie. So when people ask to be how I draw these whims e style faces, I decided to make a class about drawing a simple face in my style. You'll still learn some basics and be able to draw this face. By the end of this class, you will be able to add your own style and make it your own way, then color and shade with possible pencils. So why passel pencils? Pastel pencils are a lot easier to pick up and master right away. They were one of my first art mediums when I started, and I think they're great for beginners and I still love them, especially when I want to get an artwork done quickly. I have come up with a simple class to get you started. Three classes for the beginner. Yes, You don't need any experience in this class. I will show you step by step My simple methods on drawing a simple female face with stylized features. You will then learn how to patch depths and simple shading techniques. You'll color and blend Dreamy chill est really twinkly night sky with Aurora boreal liest effects. We'll add a Zodiac Star Constellation Crown to her story hair. I chose my own cancer Zodiac sign, but you can add your own Zodiac star constellation. A chart is included in the class downloads. This class is great for beginners who would like to learn how to draw an imaginary face. Beginners who want to start coloring. It's also good for anyone who loves mixed media and wants to try out a new art medium, like pastel pencils. And it's also good for anyone who wants to apply these techniques in their own artwork. But this is not for anyone who wants to learn a realistic face with realistic proportions. At the end of this Zodiac Star Constellation girls class, you'll be able to drawn shade a simple, closed, I wistful female face. You will be able to shade the phase from dreamy eyelashes. Cute nose blushing cheeks to the pouty lips have a complete understanding on how to use pastel pencils from tools, blending methods, sharpening, cleaning up and sealing your work. You will know the tricks on using ink with pastel pencils. You'll be able to create and personalize your very own Zodiac star. Constellation Girl this'll Project makes a great personalized gift for someone's birthday or an art piece for your home. This is a fun and relaxing project that you can do any small space in your home. You will have added extra skills to your art journey and wow people with your twinkling creation. So what you waiting for? Let's get started. 2. SUPPLIES List: hi. In this video, I'll be going through all the supplies will be using in this Star Constellation Girls Project. I recommend using a paper that is a little bit heavy around 200 grams per square meter with a little bit of tooth. You don't need to use passel paper because with hustle pencils, you can use almost any kind of paper. I'm using this one from Fabbiano. It's a great paper for, uh, pestle pencils, coloring pencils. And it works just fine. If you have passel paper, that's great, too. But if you don't have it on hand, I wouldn't worry too much about it. You can use almost any paper that you have on hand as longest is a little bit heavy, has a little bit of tooth to it, and you can also use hot press watercolor paper, not the rough. One hot pressed paper is the smoother one. I've used that in the past, and I think that's great for pistol pencils as well. And the size I'm using today is six by eight inches and also recommend putting the paper on some sort of backing like a cardboard paper, and then we'll be taping it on to it, so we'll be needing some kind of tape. I'm using a washing tape that you can use masking tape. A couple of rulers. Angular is fine, and we will be using pestle pencils now if you've never tried passel pencils before and you're not sure what they are exactly. Pestle pencils come in the form of a pencil, but within the wood is a thin stick of pastoral that has a consistency in between hard and soft pastels. A are like soft pastels because they blend quite easily, and at the same time they're like hard stick pistols because they can add a lot of detail. And that is that is why I like them, actually. And they're not as messier dusty as the soft stick pastels. They're just like coloring pencils, but they blend instantly and mixing colors. It are a lot easier. Every brand of postal pencils are different, but I find that the stability so chalk pastel pencils has a good consistency between heard and soft. That's why I'll be using this brand in this class today. They're easy to find in stores and online, and you can even purchase each individual colors separately. If you don't have this brand at home, but want to use another brand of puzzle pencils that you already have on hand, you could try to match the colors that I'm using on this project. But I can't guarantee the same results. The colors I have used in this project you can find at the end of the pencil, so they are 3653854304 47 70 403 90 760 and 750 The 205695 and 100. Just as a quick tip, I recommend making a color board of all your colors when you get them. Um, it just helps when you want to find a color quickly and you can compare the colors, and I just I do it with all my projects, and I think it's really helpful for blend E. We'll be using some blending stumps as you see here, And if you don't have that Q tips will do. I just want to note that fancy tool there is called a color shaper. They're also meant for sculpting. And now, if you don't have that. It's really okay. I actually use it in the course just to demonstrate how you would use them. But if you don't have it is not necessary at all. I also recommend using on erase herbal pencil because they're less messier than the normal standard pencils. They don't leave graphite behind. So I recommend those. And erasers. A very important I have these two from Tom Bow. I have the square one, which is great for, um, angler lines. And I also have the rounded one, which is really great for ah highlights for rounded areas. Now you don't need them both. I'm a bit of an art supply addict, so I just had to get both. But if you can get your hands on at least one, it would make your life a lot easier. Now, if you don't have them or you can't find them, a normal eraser is just fine. You can just cut an end of a normal eraser. And there you go. You have, uh, do it yourself, Tom. Bo Eraser, Basically. And absolute must is the need Herbal eraser. The 60 10 passel pencil kit already comes with this eraser. Bravo, Bravo. stay below, but if you don't have it, you could buy it separately. Every artist should have it. It's great for cleanups erasing cleaning your fingers. You can just take a small piece of it and use it like the small ball as a little eraser. Or you can use the whole thing, mash it up and use it as a big ball to clean up pencil marks. Pick up dust particles and then you massage it again, and you can use it over and over and over again. It's self cleaning, and I love it. You will need a sharpener. The stable 0 60 10 case does come with its own sharpener. This sharpener is meant for these postal pencils, and I really I like them a lot. They really sharp, and I think they do a good job. They can also be bought separately. Also. Ah, blade will be handy because you will need that to clean off your stumps, and I will show you how I do that within the course. And this is a little tray I found actually at a Kia, and it's great for putting the shavings or little doodads will be also using these dotting tools. The 1st 2 are meant for, uh, sculpting. Now you can find them in art supply stores. If you don't have that, you can use, um, the nail art supply dotting tools. Those are much easier to find, and all else fails. You can use toothpicks and that many do the job as well, and you'll be needing a very tiny paintbrush. I used the five zero paintbrush, and we will be using ink. I'm using the Windsor and Newton Inc and White. If you have another brand, it should be okay. Another must are these wipes or baby waves to keep on hand. They're great for cleaning up your fingers and workspace and a tissue or paper to cover your work, just to protect it as we color along and last but not least, the fixative, which is totally optional. A note on fixative. Now, if you are keeping it for yourself, I wouldn't use it. I don't usually use it for myself, but if you plan on giving it as a gift or selling your artwork, I recommend using a final spray fixative. Fixative prevents majene, but if you put it in a glass frame, that should do the job as well. I also include a Zodiac star Constellation chart. You can find that in the class downloads, so that's pretty much it. I know it seems like a lot of tools, but the good news is, if you don't have all the tools I mentioned in this video, you can still complete this project All you really need IHS some paper pestle, pencils. Of course, if you don't have any of the blending tools, you can just use your fingers on eraser pencil. Some baby wipes would be handy. Uh, Inc is pretty much a must, and that's about it. So I can't wait to see you in class. Let's start making some star Constellation girls. See you soon. 3. PREP & LAYOUT of face: Hi there. My name is Tammy, and I will be your teacher for the Star Constellation Girls class. I'm really glad you are joining me today. I hope we'll have lots of fun in this class. I just want to mention that some of this class is voiceover, but most of the class will be in riel time. So get out your passel pencils and let's get started. So I'm going to get out my cardboard. And I painted my nails in theme of this class. Hope you like them. I'm gonna get out my paper. I did do a video on all the supplies you will need. So I suggest Do you watch that before you start? So I'm gonna get out my paper, and I'm going to start to take minute onto this cardboard. Now, this is good, because first of all, it will keep the paper in place and at the same time, um, you're creating. Ah, a nice border. This will create a nice white, clean edged border. So make sure when you put the tape on, it's nice and straight, as you can see, when we're all finished with the project, it will produce that beautiful. Ah, white border. And also you can move the project around to another surface while you're working, we will need our irascible colored pencil. Now, I prefer these because the normal pencils have graphite and graphite are very messy and leave like a graphite, which is dark and sometimes will muddy the colors. So I prefer the irascible colored pencils and the many erasers these air great for erasing very, very tiny lines. And they're great for maybe producing highlighted areas. But if you don't have that, a normal race will will do and get out your need. Herbal eraser. Some people call it putty, but I guess the right term is need herbal art Eraser, This is an absolute Must I really suggest you get it? Especially when you're working with pastel pencils and get out your ruler. So let's get started. So we're going to start out with centering the face. We are going to cut the paper in half, so from where you put your tape, that is gonna be your starting point and just put a very light line through the middle. Then you're going to do the same on to the other side. You're going to split it in half, and that is going to be your center and then split that in half and be very light handed when you're, um, drying in that line, the's pencils are erase herbal, they will erase. But if you draw the line to to to dark, sometimes it is hard to get out that line. Totally. Um, now we're going to determine where the face is going to be exactly. We're going to determine the middle of the face where the eyes are going to be more or less , and the way we're going to determine that is from the middle. We're going to count. Um, here. I'm counting about three centimeters from where I have the washing tape. That will be the beginning of where my face is going to start and another three centimeters from the other side. This is how wide the face is going to be. So just draw a straight line, very light straight line there. That's how wide my face is going to be more or less now that we have that we need to draw out an egg shape or oval shape, and this will produce our face shape now it doesn't have to be perfect at this point because we will be adjusting as we go. The face shape can be more rounded. The more rounded you go, the more baby like an innocent it will be. 4. Draw EYES,NOSE,LIPS: Now we're going to determine more or less where the eyes are going to be. But since we're doing a cute girl, face a more stylized, more whimsical, very like type face. We're going to bring it down about one centimeter and let's draw a line across very light line, and that is where our eye is going to be placed. Now we're going to divide the lower part of the face in three, and at this point we're just going to more or less free Hand it. Ah, we're going to change the nose position later on, but more or less it's going to be a boat there. We're gonna divide it equally. So just draw a line, draw little circle, place the mouth, a little line, a little circle just to get an idea of more or less where it's going to be now to the I leave about 1/2 a centimeter from the temple, and then we're gonna just do like a little half moon going down and then the little straight line for the tear duck, and then we're going to repeat that now. At this point, it does not have to be perfect. Ah, we're going to adjust it with our ruler. So let's practice that line again of the closed I so starting from one corner, you're going to make a little, uh, sort of, like 1/2 moon and then just draw a little straight line for the tear duct. So, as you can see, we free handed it and we're gonna take a step back and determine whether the eyes are equal . They should be equal spaced out equally thes eyes air about 2.5 centimeters. And just to be sure, I will take out my ruler and I'll be, ah, fidgeting and correcting the eye placement. Now, because this is a cute girl face, they are pretty big and wide apart. And but you can decide whether you want them bigger or smaller. 2.5. And this is about two, and I'm gonna make it. Oh, and also want to make sure that they are palest. And I see that this woman just check. Yes, it is. Me too. Just this. I'm gonna take my round one cups boat here. Then this is just gonna grounded out. So the eye with is about 2.5 centimeters in between the eyes is about 2.5 centimeters and from the I to the temples and left about half a centimeter. So I would say it's is pretty balanced now moving on to the nose. So I note about the nose, the higher the nose is positioned on the face, the more cute or baby like the face will appear. But for my constellation girl today, I don't want to seem to be be ish, so I will bring the nose a little bit lower on the face. She's a young girl, but not so not so young. So I just, um, lowered the nose a bit. I just drew a little line. Now I am going to curve a line. I'm just going to curve the line and make a very light circle. And then for the nostrils, I'm just gonna add two dots on the side dot dot and then for the side of the nostrils. I'm just going to curve to simple lines. A very simple knows. Let's try that again. So basically, I'm going to make a little curve two dots for the nostril and then two lines to just, um demonstrate the site of the nose When were when? When we will be shading the nose, we will be defining it a lot more. But for now, we're just going to add these simple lines to have an idea of the nose. Remember, this is not a realistic face. The nose is supposed to be very cute. You could make the nose as wide or a small issue like now we're gonna add the little groove that we all have under our nose, which is actually called a filter. Um, so they're just too little small, curved lines, curved, curved, curved, curved. Now we're going to do a little smiley face right under those two curved lines that will represent the Cupid's bow, the upper lip. So I'm just gonna do, like, a curve line. Sort of like a little smile. Very, very many smile right under that, uh, dimple. Some people even call it the Cupid bows. Dimple. Now I'm gonna decide the thickness of the upper lip, so I think I'm gonna have sort of, like, you know, not too thick, not too thin. I'm gonna draw a straight line across then from the, um, corner of the eye. I'm gonna go down, and that is in determine the end of my lip. Now, from that point, I'm gonna do the same on the other side, so that will determine the the width of the lips. And then I'm going to drop a line slightly curved line from the Cupids Vote to that dot and then I'm going to draw the pouty inner lip. I will show you that again in a moment, and then I'm going to determine the bottom of the lips. So here you can decide if you want, like, a a very big lip, lower lip or very thin lower lip. I'm going to just sort of do it in the middle. So I'm just gonna draw a little tiny curve line, and then I'm gonna connect the dots from the outer corner of the mouth connected to the middle and then from the corner of the mouth, I'm going to curve in the middle of the mouth. I'm going to curve it that is going to create sort of of that pout. So we're going to review this again. So we're going to draw a little curve to represent the bottom of the nose, two dots and then curve curve for the outer knows go down to curves to represent the groove and then the Cupid's bow, Um, like a little happy face. Then, from there, we're gonna determine the size of the lips, the straw line across, and then from the tear, drop the corner of the eye. We're gonna go down and position adopt their This will determine the width of the lips, and then, from the Cupid's bow to the dot the end of the corner of the lips, we're going to connect a line curve the line slightly. It just like connecting the dots. Then we're going to determine the size of the lower lip. So I think I'm just gonna have it. Not too big, not too small. Drag a little curve line like that and then connect uh, the lines from the corner lips to the bottom of the curved lip. The bottom lip now for the middle pout. So we're going to do this little shape. It's sort of like, Ah, I guess you can say like an M shape. Then from the corner of the lips, we're going to round out the middle part that will create that pouty open mouth looked. Let's try that again. Just follow the lines as I'm doing here. This will take a little bit of practice, but you'll get the hang of it now. We can create some expressions here, So if we turn up the corner lips, we sort of have a happy face. And if we turn down those corners, um, drawing a straight line down, that kind of gives Assad pouty face. Look, But for my star constellation girl, I'm just gonna have, like, a neutral look. I'm gonna slightly turn the lips just slightly. And there he could determine she's just, uh, relaxed, I guess. 5. Draw CHIN,NECK,CHEEKS: Now we're going to determine the chin. So from the lower lip down, we're going to put in a curve line. Now you can determine how you want your chin. If you make it a little bit higher, it will look more babyish. Now, if you lower elongate the chin, let's say about here it will Look, um, it's more of a realistic chin, but because this is a cute girl portrait, I'm going to raise up that chin about there and, um, opposition my chin, A book there, which is, you know, not too babyish and, uh, not too adult ish. I guess you could say now, from here, we're going to have to round out the face, create the cheek area. So before we do that, let's curve in the lines that will represent the temples. Just curve it out. And then from there, we're going to connect from the temple to the bottom of that chin. So again, here, too. If you round out the face, it will look, um, more, uh, younger, More innocent, I guess you could say And if you thin the cheeks out Ah, you would get a more sophisticated look, which is very pretty as well. Ah, you can play around with the shape of the cheeks. I would suggest you play around with the shape and see what you prefer. I am going to draw in my chin again, and I'm going to make the my cheeks a little bit rounder. It's just connecting the temples to the end of the chin. Now I am going to define a little bit of the the head. So from the temples, I'm going to bring out the line, um, to the side. I'll just curve out the temples again. So from the upper temple, I curve out the line. Let me just erase some of those extra lines. Now the ears usually start from the outer bottom of the nostrils, so I'll just add in the ears. But we weren't won't really worry about the years because the hair will be covering the years today. Now for the neck, the neck usually starts from the middle of the eye ball. So from there I will just draw a line and I will start my neck about there and I will curve out two lines to represent the neck. Then, from there I can determine how long I want the next to be, and I will. I will have the neck about there. I'll just draw, like a little line across to make my shoulders. Even the shoulders would usually come out from, uh, the outer head. Basically, there would be wider than the head. Um, I'm sorry that my camera shot. It was out of camera shot. Just bear with me for a moment. Um, now my usual pixie illustrations. The neck is usually a lot thinner, a lot longer. And the shoulders are usually, um, not as wide as the head. They're actually very, very thin. This you can play around with. So from the top of the ear to the top of the head, I am drying in the hairline and the part in the middle. So just a straight line across, we will go on to the hair. Ah, a little bit later. I just want to move on to the eyebrows first 6. Draw EYELASHES,EYEBROWS,HAIR: I just want to move on to the eyebrows first so the eyes were closed and depending how big the eye is. Let's say eyebrow would be about here. Sand. This line looks about right. Extend live it side of the tear took so outside of the tear duck, we are going to push our pencil up slightly. And then at the edge of that, I were going to draw a line down down, representing the temples. So from the tear duct just a little bit outside of the tear duck, we're going to start there and we're going to draw the line a little bit over and then slightly down, uh, down towards the temple represented the temple. Now we're going to draw in a little bit of the eyebrow hairs, and we're just going to sweep up the pencils and little tiny sweeps up. You can even change the expression of the eyebrows. So let's go through this again. So you start a little bit outside of the corner of the teardrop duck and you just push out the pencil, going slightly upwards and then slightly downwards. So starting from outside of the tear duck, little strokes upwards and then going downwards, adding a few thin pieces of hair. We will be darkening the hair later on when we go to color in the face, so I wouldn't worry about that for now. This would be a neutral look. Now, if you wanted a sad girl, look, you would push your pencil going down a downwards lying and then slant in the line where the temples would be so starting from the tear duck and slant downwards, that would be more of a sad girl. Look at a few very thin light lines for the hair, very light handed just to represent a little bit of the hair. Now, if you wanted a, um an angry, an angry type face expression, you would point the line upwards. This would be sort of, ah, angry or diva type expression. And then the line would go down towards the temple as usual, adding in the little hairs, I usually go for the the top one, which is like a neutral look and, uh, and even the middle when a sad girl look, those are my two favorite one. Now the eye lashes beautiful eyelashes. Now, when drying eyelashes, the movement would be to the side. So starting from the outside, moved very light strokes at first curved, curved to the side. Then when you reach here, you go with us. Traitor. Long too small to the site. Occur slightly. Kurt! Kurt, Kurt, Kurt! Kurt! Straight down. Because now you're looking forward. It would be more a straight line, straight line. And then the cure's following the curb of the I very short, very short strokes. So that would be the eyelashes. Now, you don't need to put too many lines, because with the chalk pastels, we will be darkening this later. And you could make it us thick chorus, then, as you like so again, just to practice again. Okay? The movement is going this way. This way. Courage is her. Curve her. Kurt! Kurt! Kurt, you're straight. Straight turn. They were you rich through the metal. Straight, straight. That here you have to curl to the other side. Okay, that you just practice again and you can start from here or there. Whatever you more comfortable. It's a Esther from here, Straight straight than here to lead to the side. Okay. Now onto the hair. So from the hair line, which I'm going to make in the middle. I am going to draw a few loose bangs and I'm just gonna start from the top and curve my pencil and sort of flick it on both sides. Then I'm going to start from that middle part again and bring the pencil up and over the head. The hair wouldn't usually stick right onto the head so we would make sure to curve the hair over the head. And then from that line, there were going to make sort of, like a short style. So let's just put one line across to the shoulder and then we're gonna repeat so over the head around, followed the curve of the head, flick it out a bit at a straight line where you want the hair to end here. I'm just adding a for you loose strands. Now we're gonna break up that straight line by making some curves inside the hair. So down, curve up, curve. Break it up. Down, up, down, up. What kind of making little triangular shapes? Now, in this class, we're doing this hairstyle, but if you want to make their longer or shorter, you can totally play around with the hair style, but in supporting to know that once we start coloring in the hair, we won't really see the outline of the hair too much, so I wouldn't worry about the hairstyle. 7. Final prep & SECRET TIP!: Now that we've done the hair, we need to erase all these lines that we have on the on the face. So I'm just gonna take my big eraser and erase all my guidelines within the hair. Just erase away as best you can. Now, you don't have to worry about erasing every single line because once we start coloring again, you will not be able to see those lines Now for the little small lines that are hard to get to. This is where these little mini Tom Bo erasers come in handy. So I'm taking my round one and I'm getting in there and you racing away just ah, on the upper eyelash. I even erase the lines I have over the i the I crease. We will be shading the I later on, but we won't be focusing too much on deepening those eye creases. This face will still look very pretty and defined, but we will not go too much into detail because this is still a cute girl. Face very simple face and it will still be as lovely. I think I'm happy with my sketch, but just to be sure, I'm gonna get my phone out and take a photo of it. Why? Because when you're working on a sketch for a long time, your eyes get used to the lines and you don't see the mistakes that you might have created . So by doing this, I take a picture, I go to edit it. And then I turned the picture around. I'll turn it to the side, alternate upside down. And by doing this, I can see clearly now how my lions are if you know if when I is bigger than the other. Or, you know, maybe, uh, I need to change the neck. Or maybe here I see that I want to make the eyebrow bit thicker. More even. So, I just compare my sketch to the photo, and this is a really cool tip that you should use. 8. COLOR CHART- Make a Pastel Pencil Color Chart: I think I'm happy with the face. So I am going to move on to coloring the celestial hair. I'm gonna put away my pencil, my big a racer. Ah, yeah. I'm gonna leave out my too many tumble erasers. My need a Balart. Eraser? Yes, I love that. Definitely going to need that. And my three stumps. I love to have three sizes because the big one is really great for those big areas, the middle one for the middle areas. And the tiny one is great for those fine details. Now let's get out our pastoral pencils. This is my favorite part. And now I'm just collecting all the colors that I'm gonna need. Please review the supplies video. I go over all the supplies and materials that we're going to need for the next part. So these colors that we're going to need are 365385430 and 4 40 And then we're going to need the 770 403 90 the 7 60 and the 750 the 205695 And the 100. Now what I like to do before every art project is to create a little color chart. So I'm gonna take all the colors and I'm just gonna sample them. And this is great, because that way I can just go to my chart and make sure I'm using the right color. Um, it's a great way to see how the color really is. Then I'm just gonna take out a pen or marker and put down all the numbers on top of all the colors. And this is just a great reference to have always on hand. And even if you ever want to do this project again, you can see all the colors you used before. It's just a great reference to have on hand that I'm gonna take my stump and blend the colors away. And, as you can see as you blend in the colors, they do fade out. It does change the tent a little bit here. I'm just taking my notable eraser and removing a little bit of the color particles that might have escaped here. I'm just tracing all my stars out. This is optional. I really recommend you do this color chart. It's really great to have on hand 9. AURORA BOREALIS HAIR-Layer 1: before we start coloring in with the pastoral pencils, but I like to do is take my needle eraser and just lighten all the lines. Get rid of some lines that my racer didn't get. And this just makes my sketch a little bit cleaner. And as you can see, one side is later than the other. And I kind of do this with all my sketches before I start coloring or painting. And it just makes the sketch, uh, cleaner and a nice, uh, starting point. Now it's very easy to overdo it, and I usually dio so no problem. Just get out your pencil again and trace over the important lines. Okay, so let's start colored in the hair. So I'm gonna take my 365 which is that purple lee pinkish color. And we're gonna add a little bit of color just to the top part of the hair. And then we're gonna add the 385 which is the purple color, and we're going to place it just around the other color. 365 We're going to create the aurora borealis effect. I have a hard time pronouncing that word. I don't know if you do to. All right, moving along. Now we're going to take this color, which is the 4 40 and we're gonna place a little bit of that pigment in the hair as well. I'm also gonna add it a little bit around the face. I'm going to distribute the color the pops of this bright blue a little bit around the face . Maybe, uh, maybe beside the neck. Then I'm gonna gonna take this color 430 and I'm going apply it right beside the 4 40 And I'm gonna do the same for wherever I put the previous color. I'm going to add the color just beside the other color, side by side. Then I'm going to take the color 400 and I'm going to apply it beside the previous color that I had before. And I'm gonna do the same to the other pups of colors around the neck. I'm going to start filling in the hair with this color. Well, even at the color beside the purples that I added previously, I'm just gonna speed this part up a bit now when I've applied this color, I'm going to take my stump Now, if you don't have a stamp, a Q tip cotton swab will do, and I will start blending all the colors together. I will blend in the blue into the medium blue and then the medium blue into the darker blue . I want to still keep the bright blue there. I don't want to totally blend in everything, um, perfectly together. Now, when using your stump, you have to make sure that it is relatively clean or you're using the colors very similar because, as you can see, the very dark blue. Or I think I had a black on that stump before went into that bright blue. So this is how I'm going to clean my stump. I'm gonna get out my blade and then basically cut off the previous color by swiping my blade back and forth. I want to keep that point, though. And as you can see, the blade will take off the previous colors that were there. And now I can use it again. And here is my little tray. I just put all my shavings there, so I want to correct that black straight that I have there. I don't want it to be there, so I'm just gonna add my 440 once again, take out my stump, make sure it's clean, and I'm gonna blend away. And it's a very easy way to clean up little mistakes. It's very difficult to make mistakes when you're using pastel pencils. They're very controllable. And I think that's part of the reason why I love them so much, especially when you're beginning to color. It's less stressful, less stressful. In watercolors, for example, water is very uncontrollable, although I really do love watercolors. Okay, moving along now, I will blend in my purples. So again, I don't want to totally get rid of my brightest purple there, the 365 which is in the middle so I will blend in the darker purple into the lighter purple . I'm just checking my stump. I see it. It's a dark purple, and I will just turn it around and make sure I have the clean side. And then I will blend in the lighter purple into the darker purple, and it kind of melts altogether. I want to kind of create an ombre effect. Our home number hombre. I'm not really sure of the pronunciation. Bear with me, please. Okay, so I blend, Blend, blend away. Now, I see that some of my, uh, pencils are getting a little dull, so I'm gonna get out my sharpener, and I just want to demonstrate. Ah, how great thes sharpeners are. The pretty sharp they are made for these pencils again, This little trays really handy. I actually found it. I keep I can probably get this point here, but I'm just gonna leave it as is. And now we're going to continue, and we're going to go back into real time going to lightened some areas in here. So this is the 4 30 which is that one right there. Okay, so here we go. See that? Even here, I'm gonna dark in in a bit of this color for 30 So just so it blends in a little bit more. Because writer blue, I still want to keep this quite bright. I just wanted to sort of one in better on the stump. And simply you would use your fingers to This is where the baby wipes come in handy. Especially for cleaning up your fingers and your workspace. I see gun. Oh, God, I have a lot of this pinkish purple and I want to balance it out. So I will go ahead and take my 365 It doesn't really matter. You don't really have to define the hair that much, because eventually interfaces sort of blending in to be night sky and maybe just like just Todd Todd Todd here too much here, adding a bit of the darker purple. So maybe here on the side, Because inside her neck, which is usually dark, I need to cover this area. But I am actually going to use the 3 93 90 between us out on this one. Okay, It's a little bit of the deeper blue. I'm going to use it here. This needs a little bit of sharp it he was going shopping this again. And if the collar goes a little bit into the face, it doesn't matter, because we will be shading the face in these darker tones anyways, so don't worry about that at all. Just get the color down. Well, I'm at it. Just had a little bit of leave here. There. I think my stump and I used purple here before, so I think we'll be OK. I mean, I don't want to blend too much of the dark purple inside the main later purplish pink. Here. I do want to keep this visible, and I still want to keep the color as it is. Okay, As you can see, we do have pigment okay that it's not exactly in the paper, but that is OK, so we can just simply take our fingers and again blended out, and you see that it will just melt away in the paper so these stumps are great. But let's say you don't have them on hand and you want to get some blending done. You can even use Q tips. Why not? You can use Q tips to so like they're even great for detailed work here on the edges on their there. Even easier to clean you just once you got the color on there and you don't want to contaminate another color with this color, you just turn it over or get simply a new Q tip. Let's just leave the hair alone for now. We will go back to this, but I just want to get the background going and the face going so the back 10. NIGHT SKY & AURORA BOREALIS HAIR-Layer 2: we are going to slowly darken up the background. So the furthest, um, point here would be here, so that would be the darkest. And so we'd be going from dark, darker to darkest. So I will pick up my 770 which is a deep purple and again, just in there, not all the way to the edge again. We're just We're going to be using that technique of leering it up side by side, and then we're gonna blend it all in to create that home bray effect. So we're gonna take theseventies 60 and let's just speed this along. We're gonna add some pigment just beside the purplish color. We added just before then, we're gonna take the black, which is theseventies 50 and we're going to fill in the rest of the background. Then we're gonna take the stump and blend it all together. Should be blending it a little bit into the lighter blue bear blended Well, ended up just kind of going in circle emotions and then take your stump. You know, right now I don't really mind if the previous color is going into the black because it's just black you won't believe people see it anyways. Okay, I think the cleaner side of this edge here and I'll just try to bend it a little bit more. Let's just speed things along here. I am just going to do the same exact thing on the other side and would apply the color side by side, and then I'm gonna blend it away. Now, as you could see, the stump has a lot of pigment on it. You can actually use that pick man as a coloring stick instead of, you know, picking up the blue again. Also, at this point, it's OK if you blend in the color into the hair part. Um, we kind of want the hair to blend into the night sky. At this point, we just wanna, you know, get the background going, blend it all in, and later on, we will be defining the hair and adding the final details. So just blend away. Also, you can darken the background as dark as you like. So if you want to make the background darker, just, you know, add more block. So as you can see Ah, in a moment I will pick up the black and I will start darkening the background. I think I wanted to be a little bit darker. This is also great for cleanups, and I would just tap along the edges or wherever you want the extra pigment to come off. She's a tissue. You can use a piece of paper. I like using a tissue because first of all, you kind of absorbs a little bit of that extra pigment that might have came off. And I can usually just change it. Whenever I feel like it's getting a little bit dirty. I'm gonna start tracing out more or less the hairline. Okay. And this was the part. More or less, she's gonna have a shorter hair here up because around William, you can sort of blue. Let's create a little bit of movement. Okay, Here, let's We can use this color even to define the face at the same time. Just go over our lines. Here, Channon Parche, find thes neck over the shoulders. We were just racing over everything right now with this color flooded out. I like it, but it's a little bit to break. Gonna start with 770 here. I'm just going to be adding some darkness to all of this color. Now, if you like it like this, you couldn't totally keep it like this. But I'm going to actually tone down these brighter parents and just talking the full Harry . Usually it's starting here in the with a hair. Let's break up this color of it by adding a little bit of darkness inside. It's kind of like I'm creating these clouds inside of this lighter blue. I don't want it to look like to clunks of color two circles. So Bennell, a odd some Keep your actions, starting it up your face. What's going on here? Kind of color randomly. Don't want to look so perfect. We're gonna hide the years here. We're going to pretend that the hair is covering the years. See how I broke up this color at it randomly. I'm moving my pencil in circles in circles here, so I'm making I'm gonna leave this color the way it is. I'm gonna leave this color. It is really just brightness. Gonna break it up with it in here. Break that this more. Another truly use are these color shapers and basically they blend in the color as well. They're very great for details. A very precise. And then where is my baby Waves? Yes. You clean it in a snap. Here we go. They're really meant for small, small areas. So I think I'm gonna put bad away. And I was gonna go back to my stump here. So as I work, I couldn't add more color. I can darken things up like already. I know that I want this picture to be having a blast. Now I'm seeing that. I want to add more of this. 77602 because I was here and then I blend away. All right. Okay. So I'm gonna leave the hair. We will go back to adding the final touches of the hair, but let's get on to the face, which I myself love shaving the face. So here we go. 11. SHADE TheFace, Cheeks, Lips: Let's start shaving the face. So I'm going to pick up the 385 shading this face I'm going to keep with the same colors. I am not gonna go into any sort of realism or no dark skin tones, light skin tones. I am just going to keep the same colors. I'm gonna leave her face pretty much white, but I'm I'm gonna shade it. So it's not. Start quite and shading it. I will give it some depth so very lightly. Okay. Very lightly with you. Pencil. 385 We're just going to at the color around the hairline and just on the edge of the temples, you're going to pick up the for a 00 and we are going to go a little bit on top of the previous color and at us a little bit of pigment on top and a little bit on the side and again, a little bit on the temples were then can continue a little bit on the edge of the cheek. We're going to do this kind of you, mitt. Now let's take our blender and I'm gonna use this skinny one and again if you don't have the skinny one. You could quite easily used a Q tip. So let me just use Q Tip Fi's fault. So in circling motions, certainly emotions blended out blended out. I really don't like how I have that hard edge. So what I'm going to do is take my Taser. We'll use this round one and just I race it. Take my little blurry, sir. Tough it out because I have pigments still there. I'm just gonna I mean, it's really difficult to make mistakes because, uh, festival pencils are reasonable. Let me use this one now just to show you during The deeper you press, the more blends out, we just turn it over for this cleaner edge. I had a little bit to change very lightly, very lightly. I'm circling motions. The Chen. You're sort of creating like I be You're not totally shading on this part. And this part you're just want to absolutely like a V machine just under about their darkest part. Be in the middle, getting a bit on the side. Okay, let's go ahead and get it clean a Q tip and sort of soften the edges out. So I'm taking the Q tip and I'm just not really on the color. But they started just on the edge of that line. Who softening the joke to find a little bit more cripple there. Celtic. My stamp blended into it there. That's looking better. So let's take my Q tip again. Clean one. The FBI, the edges. I don't share your time. I'm actually running a little bit. It's hair at the same time. So this is for 30 and very likely just gonna hurt, like in circles about the color to the cheeks part. Not too much pigment because, as you will see it will all blend outwards. Stunt. Just want to make sure it's clean. You did it and bring up a color up to the the three I the line of the I forget up. Find it out. Decide. Bring up the college up to be the line of scene I lost. The eyelash line is what it's called. And as I'm using these circling movements, I'm pushing the collar out Christian, the car out just so it's HINA plugs into a white part of face. I am going to be Luke keeping all this part white this is mostly where the light would hit the face. For some reason, I don't like I want to fix it here. One be patient with me. This is all it is. Justin, as you go. Here we go. This is 770 I have adjusted that line. This is common if you're painting or even with watercolor, sometimes very hard to stay within the lines, the original lines. So you are adjusting constantly during your artwork. And sometimes you actually like how it looks better how you originally sketched it, at least for me. That's how it usually goes. Let go. Let's go on to the lips So the lips, usually the darker part of the lips are are darker. And I am going to be using the color of 400. Very simply, you trace it out just as you would have regular Call me pencil. Just you small strokes. That's what you need. Take out your stump. That's why I like these. And if you happen to have a color shaper with the point of the edge says great for these tiny little spaces, it's gonna push the car where you want it, and I'm why she gonna actually prefer these because the these are very pointy. They really get into those flying ready. Tells the bottom lip. Um, and I was kind of looking a little bit got the key, but trust me, it will look nice up and just get your letter blue again in the tree. So without lying, Well, here's a little bit curved show, you know? No, there we go. And there is when this happens, and it's gonna happen makin Oy, take it. I can still use it more challenging. Oh, my goodness. But I'm probably gonna, and it's good to go and blend it out, okay? No, I do. I don't want to get rid of that party that's in the middle, so just take my circle. Eraser is the tone bowl one great Tomba was called Not Tomboy. Yes, tumble. And I will just you recent Teoh. All right, 12. SHADE Eyelashes, EyeBrows: to the eyes and the eyelashes, which I just love a door. A door. Okay, so then we are going to go with the darkest color. 770 It's very lightly again. Starting from the tear talk. You hear it straight from here. Duck, take your smallest blending tool that you have. Well, that out blended out by just tracing over the edge. Okay, Now what you're gonna do is because you still have color there. I'm just gonna blend it down a bit, smudge it out, give us much it out of it. Little call it even a little off Making love soft I just did a circle emotion where the tear doesn't That's how I get all my, um Pyxis, which am I girl quencher administrations to look so sweet and soft is it's all about the blending Okay, then I will take my color for hundreds 400 And I'm going to add a little bit of color just under the eyelash. Go, go. Just just a tiny bit Circle motions You don't go crazy. Did your stump again? Really Doesn't matter in Just have to be totally clean. I wanted out Michael Oceans. Now that you did it out. Bring the color down. I'm kind of doing this. But first, No, it was for threes. I just went out a little bit more. I'm not I'm not defining the eyelashes unjust. I wanted it in strokes by striking down and giving the idea of I washes. Okay, you see? And I'm going, uh, longer strokes on the end. Shorter strokes to the edge of the the end of the eye here. Okay, I'm gonna take the 770 and I'm going to define the eyelashes. Remember, get a tissue lines going to the site. I don't have to be too long. You could decide how you want them, but it's good smart to decide. There we go. Starting from this edge now to the side long curved. And as I go, I start to straighten them up this street district in smaller. When I start curving to the other side benefit more a lot shows. I just continue Add more. She said once here is not work. Stroot. I got a line now we're just gonna go over it a little bit with a lion and I'm going to define that fire rush. Nine we were time. I'm not gonna blend this out to get I'm just gonna leave it like that. You think we did the eyelashes? Now I want to be high pros. The any press, we have to be very light handed into the eyebrows. Okay, so I would say just basically after to find that very lightly unburied using very lights trunks, Okay, was to decide sometime my stomach figure, I wondered out. And after I blended out, I can just without even adding more color. I just take the stump that already has a bit of color, and I will add a few strokes upwards. You can hardly even see them if you want to have more strokes at more pigment. But I don't want the lines to be so harsh. I don't want it to look like, but I just want a little bit more pigment in it. All with my planned neurologist pointed out like that. See, it's like a bomb there, just like a hint of my bro. So you could have thick eyebrows. Thin eyebrows, bushy. I froze. Whatever. You're gonna go for a little shih eye problems because trendy, uh, I I actually pretty see how I just upwards up with up, up, with off. Where? Splendid. Out 13. SHADE Nose, ADD Highlights: Let's go into the nose. The darkest part of the nose. I'm gonna take that color again. 770 And I'm gonna durkin up this party of the curve. The dots, the sides occur, curves my blender handed out very, very lately, blended down. You don't want it. Look to look like a mustache happening here. Just wanna blend it just to add a little bit of definition there. Wounded out. Tap tap on those nostrils. Two points there and on the side blended out. When did that do it? Blended, hurt until it's white. Basically. Now take that color you have there and, like a little circle. Not too harsh, too harsh, leaving the center wait. Continue blending a little. Let's add a little bit of depth because under the bottom lip usually, um, is a darker because the lip is going inwards, so we'll add a little dark spot. There's take it a blender and blend. See what I just did Lend it out. It was looking to dark, so I just cleaned out my blender on the tissue. Another good reason to have to shoot on hand, and another dark point would be on the edge of the lips. So let's do that. I'm just gonna have sort of, you know, she's aside a little bit happy. Let's just turn it up of it a bit. A bit turned up darkness in the middle. You see that? Okay. Blended out, blended out by circle motion. So collection, circling Russian Blend out that point in the middle of the living. Not too much. Do you want to keep it dark? And I was just define left in the middle here, upside down. Kurt tried to current Philip blended out to the edge and my you raise Syria, just top top top it whiter in the middle there. And if you went overboard at the nose, just circle. Okay, so the face is pretty much done, but stepping back, I still want to blend this out a bit more. So I'm gonna take the lightest shade here, blue, which is for 30. And I'm just gonna lightly smith so much lately at the blue on the edge there. And this will make that line less harsh and at the same time, at a little bit mark depths to the face out. Why? Oh, lender. So as you're working you know, you can adjust as you go and to keep the middle of the eye white because that is where the eye pops out. You get too much color there. Research. Take it out. Maybe here too. You know, if you like, you can add even more color to the cheeks. Um, I think that I'm gonna add a little bit more color to the cheeks and I'm actually gonna add , like, a little bit of darker blue. And at 400 So just oh, very slightly to the top here from this edge out blend after circle, circle, circle, circle Simple disappears, disappears and to be a color circle, circle, circle Let's just continue here onto the neck because I still have that blew their excuse it Use it around the dark purple that I have there before And gonna take that dark blue And they just wanna shade out Define I used to know I'm gonna keep on using this smaller I'm gonna take the white 100 I'm just gonna add a little bit of highlights onto the face now So add it to the the apples of the cheeks here. I'm actually just gonna use my fingers Top top top, Blend it out My baby life, my fingers See how I You could even clean a little bit the edge of your pencil and I'm gonna add a little bit away here before hands. You know what? I think I'm gonna grab que two when that out. So starting the middle and I blend out towards the edge, I see a little bit here. Clear side. It's on the I send it out to be much there. See how the white sort of softens and kind of brings all the colors together. Sure, it's clean when you go to blend up the white, or else it will contaminate the weight. So blend in, blend the weight out to the edge. Okay. By I need a bolo racer. Clean up the extra little, uh, colored made of escaped from these magic pencils 14. FINAL overall defining hair layer: I'm in the face, but we need to just redefined the hair and work on the hair. So let's start with the bangs inside of the hair self. Just gotta try to be a little bit looser with my, uh, pencil stroke. So just see how I did that Here, too. It's a lot of two straight for me. I'm just gonna sort of curve it a bit more. Okay, here it's a raid, but I think I want to fix the outline, make it blend in a little bit more into the night sky. So I'm gonna make a straight line for the part and start off billable, looser with my pencil strokes. And then down here, I'm just gonna flick it. I am going to fight a little bit more pigment down here around this area. I'm going dark in it, and this will make the face pop out more so I will add figment beside the neck area around the face. I'm going to darken it up. The hair hair is covering the years. So it's OK if you don't have years on this particular phase, I'm or pigment here again and I'm going to darken it off. Besides the part, I don't want to totally cover this pop of perfectly pink color. So just clear around it, being careful not to totally cover up what we had before. The color will still come through even though, as you can see it, it looks like I am totally covering it. But I'm not. The color is still showing through. So I just want to show you briefly what I mean by blending the colors altogether. As you can see, this did start out very bright, the blue and the purple. It was that 4 40 the 365 And I added even that purple 385 But you know, I was layering and layering with the darker blues and undying pigments together, and eventually I would get this look you covered up too much. You can always go in with the color of your choice and not some color, then blended in a cleaner stump. Here, this is I'm gonna take the 760 I am going to do the final strands of loose hair Just so it is. It looks so stiff. So here we go. The hair would be out on the sides just, you know, some loose hair. Is that maybe blowing? And I'm actually gonna blend that in a bit. Try to be careful that I'm not blending that darkness into the highlighted area of the face . Okay, I think I'm happy with this. You can layer keep on Larry, and you can add a little bit of blue And there if you like, uh, darken up the background and, uh, make that darker. You can just keep on layering the sky as dark as you want it and as colorful as you want it . You know what? I'm gonna get messy. Now. I'm gonna use my fingers, and I'm gonna I'm going over all the lines I find with your fingers. The color actually melts more into the paper, and it's actually a lot of fun, so yeah, I'm I'm liking it better now that I've I've blended all these lines. The hair does look, flu, we and I'm loving it. Okay, 15. THE STAR CONSTELLATION Part 1- How to Draw & Color: Laura Stars Constellation. We're going to need ink.

Then I'm gonna take a ruler and my erase herbal pencil so I can decide. You know how long, how big I want my star constellation to be. I am going to choose to make it crowned her head. And this is another star consolation that I did and, as you can see, is kind of looking like a hot This is actually a Capricorn, So just take my pencil on the best I can try to follow the outline of a cancer starts constellation. So I see that there's a star here. There's a start here. You just following. There's another star here, and I know that there's a line that goes straight up physical street, huh? We believe it's a little bit longer than this lying, so just you can't make that line of it longer. Okay? There's another star. Go out there. Okay again. You don't have to make it perfect as long as it's looking somewhat of your star. Oh, our Zodiac constellation. It's all good. Um, this sexually makes a great gift for someone. Actually, you some of this putty just going over the line with this putty and I'm removing some of that pigment that I had before. I will take E six, 95 and I will basically at the pigment the line. And I'm just you know what? I'm blending it with my finger, But of course, you can use a Q tip. You don't want to mess up your fingers, Andi, a little bit more That yellow even used the splendor. Okay, I'm going to darken up this yellow now with the 205 and I'm just gonna start of it's really bright. This is a really bright yellow sort of go around the edge of that line. It's going to create that glowy effect it will add to later on, we're gonna be adding white. On top of this, the waiting, the yellows just out that glowy effect. Let me take a clean cotton swab. So again, try to blend out, see how it's picking up the color previous color. But it still doesn't affect the yellow. Not that much. You know, if you feel you want more yellow, you know you can go in between using the lighter yellow and brighter yellow was bringing it up with the brighter yellow, which was the 205 We take a clean Q tip and with circle motions. I'm kind of pushing up the color. I need to blend it out. I don't want it to look, I don't have straight lines. I needed to be blended out, so it just it gives it that blended look like a glow. I'm trying to achieve a glow. All right. I think that's OK. Now it's gonna take my yellow and Riyadh little dots of where the stars were supposed to be . There, there, there. Okay, let me just see how it looks. I think it's looking okay. 16. THE STAR CONSTELLATION Part 2- How to apply the INK: I'm ready to add the ink, so just take out of the box, Give it a little shake, okay? Just be careful. Your face up there, something it up. Recommend you take a toothpick and mix it. Try to remove the bubbles, and you actually get all the pigment from the very bottom by mixing it up that I'm gonna take my many, many brush and just go over the lines as best I can. Raged lines. You might have to go over the lines a few times. You can see I didn't really make that, like two straight. Now, if you don't like in that, you have about couple of seconds to remove it. Just remember that quickly. Okay? School over it with color again. That's where this the star is gonna Bees. Okay, let's try this again. Steady hand. Just gotta keep tip that excess now. The ink does dry pretty fast, so if you make a mistake, try to clean it up quickly. OK? But the great thing about Inc is that it's very liquidy. It's very gopac. So the white really stands out. Now, you could use your toothpick, so let me get a clean toothpick Thean because already dried so I can actually go over it again. Sound a little bit more ink. I'm not going to use this trade to put in my sticks. I believe this to Toothpick in, in case I have to stir it up. Now the for the stars. I'm going to use this A rounded stick. You don't have this. This is quite a professional stick. This with this is meant for sculpting. You can find it in the earth store. Now, if you don't have this on hand, you can always use these these air for nail art. I'm not sure if you're gonna find this size, but if you really have nothing else, you can use even, um, the ones you find for nail art. Okay, so I'm gonna take my involved, dip it in the ink. Not totally. Just just to cover the end of the ball. And I'm gonna place a dot of where I want my stars to be. So let's work Went at a time because the dink it does dry quite quickly. So Adam, my dog to take by toothpick and I start pushing the ink outwards to create my star. Now If you don't like this effect, you could actually draw on a star. But I actually like how these stars are. So I'm just going to keep with this method. Push out. You can make the stars as big or as small as you wish. Another smaller star here is trying to push up the lines. Too much dip place to star. Take your toothpick and I wish the star you could make the lions as thick as you want. It's then you sort of have to push the ink and control the include. You want it right? 17. STARS- How to apply the INK stars: Now I want to add little stars everywhere. So I am going to continue using this ball, and I actually use even a smaller ball. And if I don't have the smaller ball, I can even use my to I don't want just, you know, splash on the stars. I want to sort of place them almost strategically, so they have a balanced look. The stars are going to be bigger in the front, and as we go further into the background, the stars will be very, very small. And then we'll scatter a few tiny dots with this toothpick around the edge. So I will begin with the biggest ball that I have, and I'll just dip it in. Just, I would say have ah, tissue or something on hand, in case you don't like the thought that you placed and you want to change it. So I am going to actually put a docked here near the I. Okay, another God, Let's see. Here you have the dots. Air. Not too small, not too big. Another Dodge. Let's say I could hear when you her shoulder. Maybe you went around the edge of her head. This place another dot may be near. You were when? Near her face. Okay, okay. Let's just stop there for now. Gotta clean off. Okay, So now I want to create medium sized stars. So in this case, I am going to use this one. Tip it in I place it. Let's put another one. Maybe here, I'm going to place the medium sized stars near the bigger sized stars. Another one here. Just bring that up. Okay? I mean, you know what? I think I want to fix this one. You can, actually, if the in coastal where you can actually fix some of those stars. If you feel that you want to make the rounder. Okay. What's outta here? One year star. All right. Now, I'm going to take a smaller ball so you can use the end of your nail art tool, which usually there's the bigger ball. And then at the other end, there's smaller ball. And if, of course, if you don't have that, you can just use your trusted toothpick. So let me try the's smaller end of the nail art tool and see what happens. So there really tiny dots. I'm going to leave for the edge of be celestial sky. Let me try the toothpick. Toothpick really produces very tiny stars. You may wanna gonna have to make a round ball If you wanted to be a little bit bigger Going to go back to my now our tool here cause I think it goes faster. Yes, you could use a toothpick, but I am preferring this tool. - I will add a little bit of tiny start within the hair. Just a few. You've been around these stars, I think looks really nice. So you could just continue and add as many stars as you like. 18. THE MOON- How to draw & make the moon glow: Okay. I am loving this star constellation girl. I'm going to add a little moon here, so this is optional. So I'm gonna take my traceable pencil, and I will just start from the top, curve it out, and then make a smaller curve inside. Okay? Take my little tiny racer and okay, this all right? Now I am going to take my latest young, the 695 Simply color it. And Q tip or my stump. Just make sure that it's clean. Okay? Very important. Then I will take my 205 and with circling motions, I will go around the moon, make a splendid low I Q tip and lend it out with circling motions. Blend it out. Blended out until the color disappears into the white. Now, I'm just gonna trace over that moon again with this color. 390 very lightly, very lightly. Just defined the moon a little bit more, just so pops out a little bit more, and then with my sinister stump, I'm just going to go over the lines. I'm not gonna blend it out. I'm just gonna blend up the line 19. CONCLUSION- Removing the tape, How to use the FIXATIVE: and we're pretty much done. All you have to do is take off your tape very carefully and as a final touch, if you want to sell your work or give it as a gift on and keep it forever and ever and ever , I suggest you use a fixative on top that please use it outside. I'm going to keep this constellation girl for myself, so we'll probably keep it under a glass frame and it will be fine. Congratulations. Thank you so much for joining me in this class.
