How to Draw Elementals Characters with Watercolor Pencils

Creating beautiful art is a step-by-step process, and we're here to make it easy for you:

1. Secure your paper by taping the edges to keep it from curling or wrinkling due to water usage.
2. Begin with a 2B pencil to gently outline basic shapes. For Ember Lumen, draw a circle and a rectangle; for Wade Ripple, draw a circle and an oval.
3. Concentrate on Ember Lumen first. Above the circle, sketch Ember's head, and over the rectangle, draw the body and neck.
4. Next, sketch the head and body of Wade Ripple.
5. Clean up your sketch by erasing any unnecessary lines.
6. Add the character details, like eyebrows, eyes, nose, and lips.
7. Make the pencil lines faint by gently erasing them.
8. Now, it's time to apply watercolor pencils to all the lines.
9. Let's add color. Use red, orange, yellow, brown, and black watercolor pencils for Ember Lumen.
10. For Wade Ripple, select blue, light violet, dark blue, pink, yellow, and brown watercolor pencils.
11. Activate the colors with water by gently brushing over them. Start with lighter colors for better results.
12. After the colors dry, enhance their realism with metallic pencils. Apply orange and black for Ember Lumen and blue, lavender, and violet for Wade Ripple.
13. Create a background using red and blue pastels.
14. Remove the tape, and your masterpiece is complete!
