TEXTILE PRINT INSPIRATION: STARRY SKY
Motifs for textile prints are infinite just like the cosmos with no boundaries. In this fashion drawing tutorial, I want to show you how to render a print that is inspired by a time-lapse photography of a starry sky. The technique is very easy and the final result is beautiful. All you need is a couple of markers(or watercolors) of different hues and a white ink pen.
STARRY SKY PRINT DRAWING TUTORIAL
• Winsor & Newton Promarkers: Pick any colors that you want or see below *
*If you use markers of a different brand, check out this Promarker color chart to match the colors.
1′ VIDEO INSTRUCTIONS
Below the video tutorial, you will find some exercises for this tutorial. You can use them as a warm-up before jumping into the main video instructions.
STEP 1 – MIX THE COLORS
For the first “color ball” I’ve picked the following 5 markers. I made a sort of a gradient starting from cold hues and then moving to warm ones.
For the second figure, I picked just three colors of Promarker.
I also made the third circle of pure Midnight Blue color.
STEP 2 – DRAW THE CIRCLES
Then, using white ink gel pen, I drew the circles beginning from the very center as shown below*.
* Don’t be afraid of breaking the lines when you draw the circles. It is even easier to draw a half-circle, move the paper, and finish drawing the second half.
The third figure looks really cosmic! ✨ After finishing drawing the circles, I added Cool Grey 4 and Black markers to make the shape darker on the edges.
STEP 3 – PROJECT WORK
Pa-bam! ✨ Now you know how to draw this cute print. Do you already have any ideas where you could use it? Make an illustration of your epic design(s) and share it in the comment section below.
