"Waffles and Mochi," a food-themed series for children of any ages that begins streaming Tuesday (March 16, 2021), comes from Barack and Michelle Obama's Higher Ground Productions-- one of the first products of a huge slate of programs for Netflix that the previous president hopes "will not just amuse, however, will inform, connect and motivate us all."
1. For star and executive producer Michelle Obama, Waffles + Mochi provided her the opportunity to extend the work she did as First Lady to support kids' health.
In this tutorial we used the following supplies:
Step 1. We begin construction by drawing a circle and a midline on it. On the left, we also draw a middle line and mark the height on it. (Pencil B)
Step 2. Draw two circles, these will be glasses in the future, also add body lines below. Draw an ellipse on the left line. (Pencil B)
Step 3. Add thickness, nose bridge and bow to the circles. Draw the line of the mouth and fur. Add thickness and leg to the fox, making a stand. (Pencil B)
Step 4. Add eyes with eyelashes and eyebrows, draw ears in the form of waffles on the sides, and draw a ball and wool on the body. (Pencil B)
Step 5. On the left, draw Vafals's friend in a helmet. (Pencil B)
Step 6. Remove all unnecessary construction lines and use the nag to make the outline tone less bright. (Pencil B)
Step 7. Draw an outline with colored pencils. We use blue for wool, blue for the head, beige for the ears, purple for the scarf, dark brown for the glasses, and black for the eyes with eyebrows and the same for the friend. Draw the body of the friend in pink, the base of the stand in red, and the leg in blue. (Colored pencils light blue, blue, red, dark brown, beige, purple, pink, black)
Step 8. Next, we make a general tone for all the details. We use blue for wool, blue for the head, beige for the ears, purple for the scarf, dark brown for the glasses. Draw the body of the friend in pink, the base of the stand in red, and the leg in blue. (Colored pencils light blue, blue, red, dark brown, beige, purple, pink)
Step 9. At the beginning, we work on the Waffles friend and the stand. We use pink and purple for the body, black for the face, red, orange and purple for the base, blue for the leg, and make only small shadows on the blue helmet. (Colored pencils pink, orange, purple, red, blue, black)
Step 10. Go to Waffles himself and paint over his eyes and eyebrows with black, and use blue and blue for his hair and head, painting over large strokes to convey the texture. (Colored pencils black, blue, cyan)
Step 11. The last step is to work on the remaining details. We make the scarf purple, use brown and dark brown for glasses, and ocher, orange and yellow for the waffle ears. (Colored pencils purple, brown, dark brown, ocher, orange, yellow)
