Here is a really easy way to make scary writing. Gently draw the outline of the words that you want to write and then just sort of wiggle around the outside, like you are drawing seaweed, then colour in the middle bit. Afterwards, you can draw in some little wiggly lines to add a bit of scariness. And don’t scare yourself while you are doing it!!
Ha-haaaaarh me hearties! Wanna be a pirate? Then you’ll need a Skull and Cross Bones Flag! follow this tutorial and you’ll soon be sailing the seven seas! Here’s a step-by-step guide to go with the video.
It was designed before the Second World War by Walther in Germany, as a short police pistol – easy to carry and conceal under clothing. The slide had a habit of cutting the web between the tumb and forefinger so they added the tang on the bottom of the magazine to extend the grip further downwards in the 1960′s when Bond was first being filmed.
Here’s a diagram of the various angles and proportions to help you draw it.
To celebrate the opening of SkyFall, the latest James Bond movie (which is said to be really great) I thought I’d do a video about how to draw Daniel Craig. Easier said than done! He has an unusually shaped head and every time I drew him he ended up looking like President Putin of Russia.
In the end, I thought i would just relax and draw him in my natural style and not get too hung about about it.His cheeks are too fat, but if you narrow them down, you lose that roundness to face that he has. I don’t think portraiture is my strong point, but you have to do the work to get better!
“How do we enter?” I hear you say. Well, click here or on the picture to go to the Derwent website and download the latest Halloween flavoured Art.Scene magazine. There are a couple of Halloween ideas for schools to have a go at them and enter to win me!
Hurry – the closing date is the 15th of November. Get your kids working like crazy and I’ll be rolling up to your school to have a fun day of drawing and storytelling.
Good luck :)
This is a bit silly – a devil style balloon that you can use on Halloween cards, posters or party invitations.

I did a drawing of a skull on drawstuffrealeasy last week and Sarah McIntyre, a brilliant illustrator who you will meet next week in a video, drew a sketch as a response. Her drawing made me think of the angel of death with a helmet and a machine gun even though hers wore spotty pants and roller-skates!. So this is my response to her response! You can see Sarah’s drawing on her blog here: http://jabberworks.livejournal.com/515538.html

I’m always asked what pen I use. It’s called a Rotring Tikky Graphic and you can now get them from the Rotring Store. I’m not being sponsored by Rotring, this truly is a great pen and I’m more than happy to tell you why.
The inks is black black and permanent. Most importantly for me, it is waterproof which means you can use watercolour or marker pens over the top and the ink will not bleed and dirty up the colours. The Nib is very responsive – I think you can see in the video that i get a really good “flick” effect with the nib. It can be used for neat equal width lines but you do also get that nice, sharp point with the flick that you would also get with a dip pen.
They are disposable.I find I usually wear out the fibre nib before the ink runs out. They are pretty much the same price as a disposable rollerball pen , but you get such high performance from them that I think they are great value for money.
I generally get my pens from cultpens.co.uk who have an amazing stock of weird and wonderful pens from all around the world and they provide a very fast service in the UK. I think they send stuff worldwide too. Don’t look at their site! If you are a penaholic, you will want to buy everything!
I used to use the Rotring Isograph in the old days. It’s a very technical pen that needs a lot of looking after and cleaning out. It also has a fine metal nib which clogs up easily and I was always breaking them! If you love fiddling with pens and cleaning them out, this is the pen for you!
There you are – I’ve been asked so much about this pen, I hope this tells you everything you need to know. If you need to know more – put your questions in the comments box below!
Here’s another lesson for Halloween – How to draw a witches hat. I’ve made a step by step guide for you. Click on the picture to make it full-size so you can print it out if you like. Let me know in the comments if you think this is a good idea.
Last year I was contacted by Josh, who puts on amazing backyard fright nights for Halloween to raise money for http://www.cmtusa.org. Joshua asked me if I would do a poster for this year’s event. I said yes and put in in my diary for a year ahead. Well, the time has come and here we are. Joshua sent me a rough for what he wanted and here, in two parts, is my version of the poster.
In part one I rough out the design and draw the house and tombstones, colouring in with photoshop. In part two I make the pumpkin leaf border and finish the text. Have fun and don’t be scared!
