Step 1: Sketch It Out
I started out with a light sketch with my white eyeliner pencil. At this point, it looks ugly, but you will definitely love the end result as soon as I layer on the colors!
Step 2: White
Now, for the white parts, I filled in the penguin's inner part of his face, as well as his belly.
Step 3: Orange Beak
Then, I added an orange beak.
Step 4: Black
Then, I added black wings, black eyes, the black outer part of the penguin's face, and started to provide a few outlines to his body and beak. Notice that I left some part of the penguin blank; this is because I am now going to move on to painting his scarf.
Step 5: Red Scarf
I now added some red to the empty space to give the penguin his scarf!
Step 6: Winter Background
Finally, I added my winter background. First, I carefully outlined some light blue outside the penguin, then blended in some dark blue to make the winter night sky. Then, I added several dots of white all over to make the snow!
Also, I used more white to give highlights to the penguin's beak, eyes, and scarf.
Step 7: Walking in a Winter Wonderland
I would love to give a big shout-out to Sophie Harris-Greenslade for providing some great inspiration that can be adapted in face and hand art, especially for the holidays!
