In this Instructable I will show you how to draw a cute anime girl, colored with watercolor pencils
Please watch the video to understand the full process.
Step 1: YOU WILL NEED...
Materials needed: watercolor pencils, pencil, eraser, brush, water, watercolor paper, white gel pen, pigment fineliner.
Step 2: SKETCH
First of all, we draw the basic structure of the body (figure 1).
Once we have drawn the mannequin, we start adding detils of the face and body. We also draw clouds and the sun in the background (figure 2 - 3).
Step 3: INKING
Once we have finished with the sketch, we ink the drawing and erase pencil strokes.
Step 4: COLORING: SKIN
We color the skin with orange, yellow and pink shades.
We start from a light color and we watercolor it.
Once the paint dried, we color again with a darker tone and watercolor it.
We do this process several times, until we are satisfied of the skin tone.
Step 5: COLORING: HAIR, CLOTHES, BACKGROUND
When we have colored the skin, we start paint clothes and hair.
I have chosen green for the shirt, violet for the pants and grey / violet for the hair.
However, you can choose you favorite colors for painting the girl and the sky :)
The process of coloring is the same as before: several layers of watercolor pencils, starting from lighter tones to the darker ones.
Step 6: ADDING DETAILS
We finish the drawing adding details with watercolor pencils (dry on dry).
We also add reflections using white gel pen.
Step 7: END!
Here's the completed picture.
