Sonic The Hedgehog

This term we have been learning about cartooning and using mixed media to create character drawings during visual arts. This week we learnt about using markers to sketch a character and then learnt how to use oil pastels to give tone and shading to our drawings. We are super excited with what a great job we all did.

What are some of the tips you have learnt during our drawing and shading lessons?

For example:

I learnt that it is really helpful, to use my finger to work out the position of what I am about to draw on the paper, before I put my marker on the paper.

  1. I learnt not to press too hard with my pencil so that I can rub it out if I make a mistake. J.T.

  2. I learnt that you can make shadows by using a darker colour and I also learnt that you can make a high light with oil pastels, for example you could do light blue from where your pencil was and a darker blue where your pencil wasn't.
