A pleasant surprise for your beloved "Catsinlove"

Soon the guy will celebrate the anniversary of our meeting. I really wanted to do something nice myself, so to speak, with my pens. A postcard, embroidery - this is somehow trite, especially since I often please him with such surprises. I wanted to do something that embodies our love. So I thought of drawing a picture (of course, far from the picture, but still there is something to see). I scoured the Internet for a long time, could not find a suitable image. But I am an insistent girl, so I found the drawing from which I will draw. These are wonderful coteyki - a loving couple, just what I was looking for.

You will agree with me that it's possible to draw a beautiful drawing without even learning to draw, you need to have a great desire and elementary skills (school). To cope with the task, you need to follow these recommendations: 1.Decide what you want to draw. You can come up with a picture yourself or, as I did, find the picture you like in the book, on the Internet. 2. Prepare the workplace, free it from foreign objects. It is important. Nothing should interfere with your creativity. 3. Select the material on which you will be performing the drawing (paper, cardboard, canvas, fabric). The density and quality of the material depends on what you will draw the picture (this applies to paper): colored pencils, gouache, acrylic, watercolor. For example, a simple stationery is suitable only for pencils, it simply “melts” from any kind of paint. This is due to the fact that when inks are used, they are diluted with water - and the paper is soaked. 4. Decide what you will do with the drawing; pencils or paints. 5. Prepare brushes of different sizes for painting with paints. Here are the main points you need to decide before you start working. Now let's get to the most interesting ... STEP 1. You will need:
  • paper;
  • simple pencil;
  • eraser;
  • a previously selected picture.
First of all, visually determine the middle of the sheet so that the drawing is not subsequently shifted to one side or the other, but exactly in the middle.In my case, in the middle of the sheet should be the ears of cats, which means that the kittens themselves are on either side of the center. First of all, I decided that I would start drawing from a cat (the one to the left) - this is just my personal desire, you can even begin to draw from the branch on which the cats sit or from the heart, personifying love. I began to draw from the head and ears, and then I started to picture the eyes and the fox (spout). As you can see, I slightly modified the eyes, it seemed to me that this would be more beautiful and expressive, but you can leave your eyes in the form of “points”, as in the main drawing. The next step I added the shape of my cat, figured out what should be her body, so that it was not too fat or thin (head 1/3 and body 2/3). I finished the paws with pads (as you can see, the left paw is slightly smaller than the right) and the tail of my beauty. Following, she made an initial sketch of the cat's head, “planted” her lovers (while one) on a branch and drew a heart around them. This is what I got:

STEP 2. Now go to the cat.His head should be in contact with the head of the cat in the area of ​​the ears. I drew a cat in the same sequence: the head of the cat, the features of the face (eyes, muzzle), the little body (it turned out to be slightly larger), legs with pads. Nothing complicated. In the middle between my lovers, I placed a flower (it should have been a delicate rosette). And do not forget to draw paws, they are also hugging, as it should be in love.

Now let's draw intertwining tails.

STEP 5. The next stage of our work will be work on our heart. In STEP 1, I drew a sketch of a heart around the seals, now I need to add elements: roses and leaves. This should be done so that the contours of the heart are not visible. Our heart is nothing but a sprig with roses, woven around a “couple in love” and personifying tender feelings. It was easier for me to start painting the heart with roses above the cats, where the concave corner of the heart is. Roses didn't always look like a real flower, but I was not upset, because much depends on how you paint.Drawing leaves and roses can not be stenciled (drawing from the Internet), but how fantasy tells you what I did.

This is how my picture looks in a damp (not colorized) form:  Loving Cupids STEP 6. Let's get to the most difficult part of our" art ". Let's define with the coloring of our "halves". I decided that it's worth moving away from the real image, and bringing in your idea. Such an idea was the change in the color of the cats: the girl came out as a blond fox, and her chevalier was a burning macho with a romantic heart on her abdomen (but this later). The first thing I did was drawing out the peepholes and the pretty face of my coquette. Naturally, I got a blonde with blue eyes, whose eyes are directed to the beloved cat. In my work on cats I used both watercolor and gouache. Gouache - a thicker color, so it can perfectly make contours or highlight important elements of the image. For the coloring of the kitty, I used yellow, orange and white colors. Mixed them on the palette. First, I applied a light (yellow + white) foundation to the whole body.Then I added a bit of orange to the palette and added stripes like in the picture. Pads painted pink, as it should be. For a more expressive look, she used brown gouache.

STEP 7. Kitty on With ready, now proceed to the cat. I decided to make it dark, so that it was immediately clear that it was a boy. Used such colors:
  • The base is the same as for the kitty (yellow + white). Used watercolor;
  • orange + brown + white gouache;
  • brown gouache;
  • a heart on the abdomen (light brown and brown gouache);
  • ears and pads on the paws - pink watercolor.

STEP 8. Go to the roses. It was possible to choose a red color for them, but it seemed to me that it would be more delicate to look for pink roses (some kind of tautology turned out right).We apply strokes so that the sketch does not touch, it's okay if there are bright spaces.

Each rosette along the outline should be outlined in pink gouache, highlighting the petals. And on the petals themselves carelessly walk through the paint, making the effect of the likelihood of a flower.

STEP 9. We seamlessly come to an end. Leaves were next in line. At this step I used: -the base of leaves (green + white watercolor);

next layer - green watercolor, careless strokes and edging of leaves;

STEP 10. Our drawing is almost ready,it remains only to decorate the twig, on which our lovers' cats safely settled. Used: -the base is dark yellow gouache; -non-striking strokes (brown + white gouache), brown gouache; On this stage you need to try to make the branch look like natural.

STEP 11. Here is our drawing. It's wonderful, as for me, it turned out. But I decided to add my own elements. As I draw a picture for my beloved, I decided that small hearts and inscriptions of recognition would not be superfluous.
