Harold is ready for summer, are you?
I thought you might enjoy seeing my steps for creating Harold.
First I drew Harold in pencil and then I outlined him with a black micron pen:
Next, I decided what parts of him I wanted to use my gelli-printed papers on:
I outlined his shorts, hat brim and towel with tissue paper to use as my pattern and then cut them out (I will glue them down later):
Using Copic markers, I colored a base coat:
I added color pencils for more color, shading and feathers:
Then I glued down my paper cut-outs with a glue stick and added details with my black pen:
I wasn’t liking my beach ball, so I decided to cut-out a new one from a gelli-print. I added some pan pastels to soften the background:
And Harold is ready to enjoy the beach!
