World Friendship Day, also called International Day of Friendship, takes place on 30th July. The original concept for a friendship day originated from Hallmark cards in the 1930s. Although initially celebrated on 2nd August, the day was largely viewed cynically by the public as a money-making exercise, sales of friendship day cards did not remove in Europe. By the mid-1940s, the day had faded into obscurity in the USA. Nevertheless, the idea of a day to honor relationships was adopted by various nations in Asia. It remained a popular custom to reserve a day for celebrating relationships and exchanging gifts between good friends.
In this tutorial we used the following supplies:
Step 1. We begin the construction by drawing the heads and the Earth with the help of the circles and oval, and also draw the middle lines for all. (Pencil B)
Step 2. Using the lines, outline the movement of the arms by adding twigs and the midlines of the faces. (Pencil B)
Step 3. Next, we turn to the details of the persons, based on the construction lines. Draw their faces and add their hair. (Pencil B)
Step 4. The next step is to finish the rest of the details, such as twigs and continents on the Earth. (Pencil B)
Step 5. Remove all unnecessary construction lines and sharpen the outline with a soft pencil. (Pencil 5B)
Step 6. Next, we make a general tone with colored pencils of all the elements of the picture. We use beige for the skin, dark brown for the girl's hair, pink for her sweater, brown for the boy's hair in the middle, orange for his scarf, and red for his sweater, yellow for the last boy's hair, and blue for his sweater. We use light green for leaves and continents, and blue for water. (Colored pencils brown, dark brown, beige, yellow, pink, orange, red, blue, light green)
Step 7. Let's move on to more detailed parts of the children. On the skin, we make shadows with the help of brown and red, add a blush, and on all other parts we simply enhance the tone with the corresponding colors. (Colored pencils brown, dark brown, beige, yellow, pink, orange, red, blue)
Step 8. Let's move on to working out the remaining details. For the light parts of the leaves, we use yellow, and on the continents we make shadows with the help of green, we also make shadows on the water blue. (Colored pencils light green, green, yellow, blue, light blue)
