Thanksgiving Turkey Hand Art




Introduction: Thanksgiving Turkey Hand Art

I am a conceptual artist, and my DIY projects are mostly inspired by pop culture (movies, music, ...

Give thanks in the most colorful and handiest way you know how with this simple hand art design great to show off come late November!

Note: This turkey hand art was inspired by a similar image found under Google images of Thanksgiving Turkey clip art.

Step 1: Sketch Out the Idea

As always, I started off with a light sketch using a white eyeliner pencil.

Step 2: Red Parts

Then, I start filling in the parts (head, goblet, feathers) with some color, starting with red.

Step 3: Orange

Then, I went into my orange....

Step 4: Yellow

...and then yellow...

Step 5: Brown

...and finally my dark brown!

Step 6: Outlining and Detailing

Then, I used black and white to fill in the features on the turkey, including his face, goblet, and feathers, along with a few strokes of white for highlights throughout.

Step 7: Gobble-Gobble!

To pose, keep your thumb in tact, and spread the rest of your fingers out to represent the turkey's feathers!

    I must be an imbecile because I have no idea what you are using for colors. All eyeshadow?
