Did you know... the tallest Easter egg chocolate was made in Italy in 2011. It stood at 10.39 meters and weighed an astounding 7,200 kg! That's a lot of chocolate! Imagine receiving an egg that big with a beautiful card like this one from designer @jess.mcafee. That would make an awesome Easter! 🍫 🍫 🍫 🍫 🍫
Don't miss this from @tkuva_illustrates 🐰 🐣 1️⃣ Create outlines - Make the central flower detailed & 2 other generalised. When drawing bunny’s fur, imitate hairs using small strokes & uneven lines. 2️⃣ Colour eggs - Use Ice Blue for the 2 left eggs & True Blue for the other 2. You can add Fair Skin (FS6 + FS7) on top of Ice Blue to create a gradient like in the reference to make your artwork look more picturesque. To separate eggs, darken shadows in the points of contact by overlaying corresponding dark blues & adding white pencil in the lightest areas. Add dots to show eggs’ texture. 3️⃣ Colour flower petals - Use Ice Blue (IB1) for the light areas and edges of the petals. Add Hydrangea to it. For the drop shadows on the eggs use Medium & Dark shades matching the egg colour mixed with Hydrangea (HB2 + HB3). Remember that shadows are always the darkest in the points of contact & dissolve with distance. 4️⃣ Colour flower cores - Create a base with Light Yellow on the edges & Dull Green in the centre. To show texture add dots using Dull Green (DG2 + DG3). With Hydrangea (HB3) darken the shadows on the flower cores & around them. 5️⃣ Shape bunny - Cover its face with Fair Skin (FS6). For the ears & body mix Fair Skin with Tan. You can also add Brown Grey to make your artwork richer in colour. For the inside part of ears use Pale Pink together with Coral. 6️⃣ Add texture & details - Leave out the light parts & draw hairs with Gold Brown. For the darkest parts of fur use Earth Brown. Follow fur direction. It’ll help to shape the bunny correctly. Start your brush stroke from the hair root towards its delicate end. Gradually reduce pressure on the marker. As you get closer to the end, it should barely touch the paper. This way you can get very thin lines. For the eyes mix in Purple (PL4) with Earth Brown (EB3). You can add multiple layers to darken them. Add whiskers using black or grey liner of 0.05 or 0.1 thickness. 7️⃣ All done! Try it today!
