Comics – Bringing out the inner child in you. Most of us have a certain character they relate to when growing up. Whether from anime or cartoons or even television programmes, we all have our memorable characters in mind. At the essence of all art jamming cartoon and comic drawing themes, Comic drawing is usually the foundation to kick start things off.
The colours used are usually brighter and more vibrant colours to add life to the portrait. On this note, the following are some comic themes art works done under the guidance and expertise of Singapore Artist Celine Chia:
Warm colours were used for the background to show the contrast between the grey, blue and white characters. Draw the outline of the 3 characters first, followed by working on the background, before overlapping with the main subject.
Simple blending is applied to highlight the skin tones of the 3 characters. The colours used are warm grey, phthalo blue and pearl white were used for the characters, while dusty pink is used for the background.
Trace out the Subject (Elsa, Minnie and Daisy) first, followed by working on the background. Outline the features of the subject and the rest of the drawing afterwards.
Elsa – Light baby blue is applied for the background and colours used for Elsa are pastel yellow, light yellow and beige.
Daisy – Light Purple is applied for the background, for daisy, the colours used are white, light blue (shadow), light pink, dark pink (outline for the ribbon), orange and blue.
Minnie – Baby pink is applied for the background. For Minnie herself, the colours used are magenta, black and beige.
Start off with drawing the subject matter. The background layer is applied first and the colours used are teal green or tiffany green. For Chopper, the colours used are brown, orange, rose pink, phthalo blue, ultramarine blue, beige, dark yellow and white and black. Outline the drawing of chopper using a permanent marker.
Draw the subject matter first. Colour the background with dark blue, and make sure not to colour the lightning streaks. To achieve the glow of the lightning streaks, teal green and white are used, with green covering the edges of the streaks. Colour the subject afterwards. The colours used are beige, yellow, white, brown and grey and black. Outline the clothes using dark brown and the layers of the hair and features using black permanent marker.
The colours used for the background are grass green. For the subject matter, white, pink, beige, orange, red, royal blue, light brown and dark brown are used.
