World Circus Day is the worldwide day of circus arts celebration that happens on April 17th. It is an opportunity to raise public awareness, share the wonders of this magical world, and bring in fans and circus lovers by creating unforgettable moments of joy.
Established in 2010 by H.S.H. Princess Stéphanie of Monaco to "publicize the role of the circus as part of our shared cultural heritage," World Circus Day is held each year with hundreds of circuses around the globe participating in the celebration.
In this tutorial we used the following supplies:
Step 1. We begin by drawing the skeleton of the clown below with circles and lines, and above that draw two circles, one on the left and one on the right . (Pencil B)
Step 2. Use the outline to draw the clown, draw his entire body, arms, legs, hair. Above, in the left circle, with circles and lines, we outline a monkey in the ball, and in the right circle, we outline a bear in the same way. (Pencil B)
Step 3. Draw a face and stripes on the hair of the clown. And draw the monkey and the bear in detail, use the construction lines as a guide. (Pencil B)
Step 4.Finish the rest of the details. We will draw the items that the clown juggles, draw an aquarium with a fish, skittles, a bicycle, balls, a rope, and an arena. (Pencil B)
Step 5. Remove all unnecessary construction lines and outline the contour with colored pencils. Brown is used for the monkey, rope and bowling ball. Orange for swords, fish and clown's sweaters. Beige for hair, head, hands, collar and pom-pom on a clown's hat, bear, bowling pin. Blue for water, clown hat, arena, ball and monkey hat. Red for boots, stripes and clown nose, ball, bear collar, bike saddle, pinstripes. Lastly, gray for wheel, clown feet and aquarium. (Colored pencils brown, orange, beige, blue, red, gray)
Step 6. Make the general tone of the large details in accordance with the color of their outline. (Colored pencils brown, orange, beige, blue, red, gray)
Step 7. We turn to the details of the clown. Enhance all colors and make shadows. For the head and palms we use beige, for the jacket orange and red, for the pants blue and gray, for the collar beige and brown, for the shoes red and blue, for the hair use red, blue and brown, beige. We make stripes on the socks with dark brown. (Colored pencils red, blue, gray, brown, orange, beige, dark brown)
Step 8. Next, we turn to the monkey. For her we use dark brown, brown and beige, and for the ball we use red and orange. We also make a hat and cap blue. (Colored pencils brown, dark brown, beige, blue)
Step 9.Move on to the bear with the bike. Since the bear itself is white, we add small shades of beige on the fur to add volume. We make a collar in red, a cap in orange and brown, a raincoat in brown and dark brown. For the saddle of the bike and the center of the wheel, we use red, the wheel itself is gray, and the stick is dark brown. (Colored pencils red, gray, brown, dark brown, orange, beige)
Step 10. The last step is to finish all the remaining details, we use all the colors in accordance with the contour, and then add shadows on the water using blue. (Colored pencils brown, orange, beige, blue, red, gray, dark brown)
