Can't draw? can't make a strait line without a ruler? I do not consider myself an artist by any means. in fact this is only my second drawing. I'm using it as my example since i remembered to take photos every few hours of drawing.  so we start off with out blank paper! and i used Pens.. wait pens for my second drawing? and I'm NOT an artist?!  whoever said you can't shade with pens obviously never tried it. for the following picture instructable i used Orange, Black, Brown, and Yellow. ok i colored over the brown with black but i thought maybe some would show through here and there.. on with the picture!

Step 1:

started with the dirt here.. the paper is perforated along the bottom edge of my dirt so when i tear it off later i had a solid base. in a previous picture ( not on here ) i used it for my sky side. i added my water line and where i wanted my sun to be along with part of its reflection early on in the picture. started my trees as well. and added the dark side of the waves. the sun is in your face after all.. the water won't look blue.
