If you saw Monday’s video – How to draw a Viking Dragon – then you may have wondered about the runic lettering I drew on the dragon. If you would like to do something similar yourself, here is the whole alphabet. It’s not proper Viking runes it’s an alphabet that you can use to make your message look Viking.
While I’m making my book, How to Draw Scary Stuff, I’ll be sharing some of the drawings with you on video. Make sure to keep coming back for more. This would be a really useful design for the Summer Reading Challenge – Creepy House.
I’m told in singapore schools that correction pens are banned because the students write graffiti on desks. I’m sure that any one reading this would be far more responsible! Wouldn’t they?
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!!
Here are three new videos to help you draw stuff for Easter. Eight different egg designs, a “happy Easter” lettering design and and simple easter Egg design which will be in this afternoon’s Easter Egg competition on The Shoo Rayner Drawing Show.
If you ask nicely, I’ll maybe add the numbers too!
Getting ready for the Summer reading challenge, here is the first of my Circus themed videos for all the Libraries that are taking part.
Quite a few people have asked me to do this. This video is a bit of an experiment to see how long it takes and wether I should do upper and lower case together. I’s quite a lot to fit into a short video and keep the concentration going while explaining tricky bits. I’ll get better at it!
I’m often asked to show how to draw a cool signature. That’s not easy, as the signature has to come from you and show off your personality, but here is a video which shows a thought process that might help you on your way. Good luck!
This is a little bit different. The lower case g is a very peculiar shape and is usually the best letter to use to help identify a font. this video shows you how to draw various ‘g’ shapes and explains how they got that way.
