Make things look metallic with this Art Attack!
You will need:
How do you get a shiny metallic effect into your drawings?
In a cartoon, it's quite easy. Just add a pair of lightly drawn lines here and there to give a shiny effect!
|But what about a colour picture. like this one?|
The idea is similar - draw shine lines using pencil crayon (or wax crayon or even paint!) - but they must be in blue.
|For flat metal, draw blue diagonal shine lines, all going in the same direction.|
|Do some lighter shading around the outside of the lines, like this.|
|Lightly smudge the lines with your finger, to blend the shading together.|
|For curved metal, do the shine lines along the edge...|
|...then add in shading around the line, going in the same direction.|
|Do the same sort of thing on other cylindrical shapes in the picture.|
|For the curved edges around the bumper, once again just draw in the shine lines around the edges...|
|...followed by shading.|
|You can add in a few diagonal shine lines too, if you like.|
|And once again, smudge the lines and shading by using your finger.|
You can use this technique on any metallic object in your pictures.
