Halloween is just around the corner, so today I’m going to show you how to make this spookily fun and easy haunted house silhouette which can you can use to make your own Halloween cards, window decor, party invitations etc. Here's what you'll need to get started.
Step 1: Color Your Background
Use your Dual Brush Pens to color your background. I chose 603-Periwinkle ,636-Imperial Purple, 569-Jet Blue, and N15-Black but you could use oranges and yellows, or any other color combination to color your sky. Start with the lightest color in the middle and work your way out to the darkest around the edges. Your coloring doesn't have to be precise or even because you're about to blend it all together with water.
Step 2: Blend the Ink
Starting in the middle, use your Water Brush to blend the Dual Brush Pen ink together. By starting from your lightest color and working your way outwards you'll avoid all of the colors becoming too dark as they blend.
Step 3: Draw Your Haunted House Silhouette
Use your MONO Graph Mechanical Pencil to draw the outlines of your silhouette. You can make up your own, or download this one I've drawn for you and trace it onto your background.
Step 4: Color in the Silhouette
Using your 05 MONO Drawing Pen, draw around the outlines of your haunted house silhouette, then color it in with your N15 Dual Brush Pen. Spookily fun right?!
Pro tip: if you can still see some of the background color through the silhouette, wait for the ink to dry completely then go over it again to make it even darker.
