Illustration for kids
Would you like to make figures of your parents and friends to gift them?
Let us learn how!
You can take a photo of your parents or your friends in front of you and see the basic shapes the faces and bodies make.
Some faces are round, oval heart shapes or triangles.
Eyes are almond or pear shaped or oval or small eyes are curved lines.
Nose could be stubby round or pointed.
Mouth can be a wide crescent shape or half moon.
Hair can be an outline of short hair or long hair with dark or light brown colour.
Body shape can be cylindrical or two inverted triangles. Some people have a bulky upper body as opposed to the legs. You can play around with these elements and make humor out of them as well. I am sure your family and friends will appreciate it!
Hands and legs are crucial not many kids are able to portray through drawings.
It is actually very easy!
If you notice, there can be two elongated rectangles and a round shape or oval shape at the end for palms instead of one line. Does it not make your person look stylish!?
So in essence,
Individualize every part of the body as a shape and connect the shapes.
You will get to see the person you are depicting and these figures can hold their favorite object or stand on a line that depicts the ground to give it more gravity.
You can color the skin, clothes, hair and maybe even give elements like a bow or a tie or soccer ball.
Your imagination is the beauty here!
We all have a little bit of Picasso hidden within us!
