** This tutorial was made in Sketchbook Pro 6 with a Windows machine, but it will work on ANY version of Sketchbook and on ANY available platform.
Let's begin with a blank canvas.
Step 1: Draw the General Shape of the Fruit/vegetable
Step 2: Redefine the Lines
Step 3: Time to Draw the Face!
For the face, you can make the face sad, angry, or happy. I'm going with the traditional looking face.
Step 4: Darken the Outline
Now what I did was go over the outline a few times, but you can use more pressure and draw over the lines instead. whatever floats your boat.
Step 5: Time to Color!
Now let's draw! :D I used the paint brush tool to do a outline, then used the paint bucket to fill it in. However, you may color it however way you want.
Step 6: Add Some Shading
What I did was used the airbrush and first added black to the lower-right side of the apple. Then I added white to the top-left. Since this is a apple I was apple to shade it smoothly, but if you picked a fruit/vegetable with more complex shape, you may want to take time on this step.
Step 7: Optional Step - Adding Light Inside
Now we need to add a new layer and place it under the layer with the colors.
You then want to do is use the airbrush tool to fill up the holes. a quick spray should be enough.
Step 8: Add a Glow Effect.
We add another layer. this one goes on top of the color layer.
still using the air brush, go over the eyes and mouth of the jack-o-lantern. make sure you don't over do it. unless you want to over do it, in that case, over do it.
Step 9: Last Step! Adding Shadow to the Background
What i did was outline the apple, added a shadow to the bottom, and made a foggy effect.
to do this, just get the air brush and basically go crazy. You can make it simple and just add a drop shadow, or do something like I did.
YOU ARE DONE :D
Thank you everyone who saw this tutorial. It's my first one out of many here at instructables :) Happy Halloween!
