How to draw a Spider Web for Halloween

I showed you how to draw the Spider yesterday, so here is the web. Its’ quite simple but not as simple as it might appear as you need to think about the tension in the silk of the web and how gravity pulls it down – or makes it sag. Watch and all will make sense – happy Halloween!

How to draw from your imagination

illustration of imaginationThis week’s subject for www.illustrationfriday.com is “Imagination”.

That’s actually a really hard subject to get to grips with. T obvious this is something in a thought bubble. I tried to get away from that idea, but it is so obvious. So I had a go at making a positive out of what I considered a negative and made the character’s head a thought bubble – a person who is so imaginative that they have become part of their imagination!

As I played with the idea, more bubble shapes came to mind, so I built the picture up from there. It’s drawn in pen and grey Copic Markers.

Watch the video for more about the thought process and the technique I use to draw the finished illustration. Why not have a go yourself. If you make a video about your illustration on Youtube, make sure to make it a video response to mine. I promise I’ll reciprocate. It would be fun to expand Illustration Friday onto YouTube.
