In this video we are going to draw some heads of moais on Easter Island.
I start by penciling everything first, the hill line that goes diagonally.
I also make the clouds, the shape, the silhouette of the clouds and I will make also the background and the horizon for then move on to make heads in a rough way, basically the silhouette and then start with color.
On the heads I just do thesilhouette and main shadows to leave them already marked and so make shading easier.
I start the color in all the areas ofthe hills which are light green with a little yellow.
I give it with a thick brush, to go faster because they are not verycomplicated and can be filled with a thick brush.
Now I give the blue of the sky with a cerulean blue with a little ultramarine and here I color basically the upper part of the sky above and then I will reserve the clouds leaving themin white to add color later.
Once I have already drawn all theblue sky I'm going to darken all the cloud areas.
There are two parts of clouds, on the right they are rounder andon the left they are a little bit more horizontal and further away.
So I moisten everything, it doesn't matter if the blue is mixed a littlefrom the bottom with the cloud, as it's quite dry, and I'm going to give a little bit of shadows inside the clouds to create some volume.
Apart from the gray shadows in the cloudto add volume, i'm going to add a touch color in the upper left border of the clouds to lighten up the clouds give them a little more color, trying to imitate as if sunlight came down from theleft and gave it those yellow glitters.
Now that the grass is dry, I will shade it with a darker green to get the shadow of the moais.
The light comes from the right above, fortherefore the shadow would be left and down.
Now I'm going to start coloring all themoai background with a thick brush with a very diluted gray backgrounda little warm, with some red.
I fill the entire surface of the moai, without caring for the shadows, because it will be thebase on which shadows will later go.
Once the bottom of the heads is dry, we will cover the entire part outside of the 3rd head, all around, leaving only the grey of the head visible.
It can be made with papers, as you seethey are leaves that I have been cutting in small pieces to adapt a little to the shape of the head.
You can also do it with painting tape, there aredifferent ways.
The idea is to hide all the surroundings and keep only the head visible.
Then we take a brush with a lot of paint.
It can be with a reddish or bluish gray We hold it with the left hand andwith the right we hit it so that it goes sprinkling droplets, splashing all the drops above the surface that we have left in sight.
We can do it from below if we want them to besmaller drops, and if we put higher the hand the drops will be bigger.
We do this with drops of differenttonality, some more reddish, some a little more blue, trying to make it uniform.
Once the paint dries we canremove the papers and see the effect of the splashing on the paper surface.
We repeat the same operation with thetwo other heads, more or less homogeneously, with the same type of splashed.
And now we can darken the shadows with a dark grey, almost black, All the shadows that make the features of the face on the stone.
Remember that the light comes from the top right, therefore the shadow will be on the left.
You can do it approximately oryou can pencil the shadow surfaces again reinforcing the pencil that you gave at the beginning so that you have a guide where it's easierto apply the shadows.
And with these last shadows, we would finish the drawing of the moais of Easter Island.
I hope you liked the tutorial, and see you next time.
