Final step by Step
My How to Draw Videos
Part One, use a Pencil. Starting with the basics
Part Two, use pencil harder or marker. Adding the details.
Sketch light first
___________________________________________________________Step by step
Key: use a pencil lightly first!!
I used a light colored marker to represent sketch mode.
1. Big 1/2 circle "taco" @ top
2. Beanie Hat (head) on
3. Eye and mouth on "beanie"
4. Peek a Boo back eye
5. Spiral tail
6. Legs ( like a forward & backward 7)
7. Draw in tree limb. 2 horizontal & parallel lines. Top like should touch bottom of "7" leg.
The are like 2 big "C"s for foot and 2 little "c"s for toes.
9. Back legs & toes
Use a marker now to put in creative details!
Adding color ------
Can use tempera cakes.
Arrange paints in color order
Paint chameleon in rainbow order.
If rainbow end before done, make a rainbow pattern.
Mrs. McGinley's 1st grade paint...
Or you can use Watercolor Crayons
Are does not have to be fully filled in.
Leave white room for it to fill in when water is applied.
Apply water to crayon. Start at one end and work way down.
Glue down onto colored construction paper. Use crayons to make patchy scribbles of colors that are in your chameleon's body.
I used a peeled black crayon around edges to emphasize center colors and subject.
Adding depth & space with foliage.
Using green paper, draw leaves of many sizes. Outline with black market and use green and white crayons to color along lines marker lines (adds form).
Drawing some larger leaves off edge will make it seem like we are peeking in on our chameleon.
