Lighthouses andbeacons are towers with bright lights and fog horns located at important or dangerous locations. They can be seen on rocky cliffs or sandy shoals on land, on wave-swept reefs in the sea, and at entrances to harbors and bays. They serve to give warnings to mariners of dangerous shallows and perilous rocky coasts, and they help and guide vessels safely into and out of harbors. The messages of these long-trusted aids to navigation are simple: either STAY AWAY, DANGER, BEWARE! or COME THIS WAY!
In this tutorial we used the following supplies:
Step 1. We start the construction by drawing a middle line and on it, we outline the size of the lighthouse with the help of 2 short lines, one on top and one on the bottom. (Pencil B)
Step 2. With the help of the lines, draw the shape and details of the lighthouse. Draw a round lantern on top, and draw windows on the base on the right. (Pencil B)
Step 3. Draw the shape of the waves around the lighthouse by creating curls. (Pencil B)
Step 4. Remove all unnecessary construction lines and draw details on the waves by the waveform. (Pencil B)
Step 5. We start hatching by making the general tone in dark places on the lighthouse. (Pencil B)
Step 6.In the dark areas of the lighthouse, we increase the tone and shade in shape, creating a volume, also make shadows in the light areas and use a soft pencil for this. (Pencil 5B)
Step 7. On the waves, we make the first tonal layer in dark places. (Pencil B)
Step 8. Lastly, we enhance the dark areas on the waves while stretching the tone, so it will turns out to have additional volume. (Pencil 5B)
