This is the fully explained tutorial for drawing the Giraffe Wordtoon. I really wanted to show you not only what parts I draw and in what order but also why. Each step sets up a clear path the flow into the next step. If you want to just quickly see who it all works then watch the fast version which is posted here as well. Cheers Wayne
I remember when i was about 12 and my favourite uncle became obssed with drawing a star. He was trying work out a perfect method to draw the 5 point star. I was baffled why he was interested in it and still have no idea as I never asked and he has since passed away.
Today I remembered about this idea of drawing a star and as I am quite good at drawing free hand stars ( after LOTS of practice ) I looked up if there are any methods on you tube.
There is a bunch of videos with differnt methods but usually some kind of gimmick way like turning the paper or using equipment.
What I wanted to work out is a few easy rules that anyone can follow to quickly draw a cool and snappy looking star. Not a perfect one.
The image below is what I came up with…
There are some more rules I could add to it but would like to see how people get on with just this so far.
Let me know if it works for you.
