Hi Tombow fans! This is Jennie! Today I’m going to show you how I made this galaxy girl. I’m also sharing a quick lesson about warm and cool colors.

Step One:

Everyone has a different way of drawing faces. I start by drawing lines. That way the eyes are even and at the same distance from the nose. I used a stencil to draw the irises. For the nose I drew an organic shape.

Step Two:

Draw the rest of the eye and the eyelid. Since this is a galaxy girl, I wanted to create an alien-esque look so I drew a different kind of eyelid.

Step Three:

Draw the outline of the face.

Step Four:

Draw the hair, neck and other details. I used the F-grade Tombow MONO Drawing Pencil for the drawing process.

Step Five:

Scribble and apply color on the image. I like to work in sections so I started with the face. This watercolor paper quickly absorbs the color. That is why I chose to create curls with the fine tip of the Tombow Dual Brush Pens. Using this technique you can still see some curls once you add water.

Step Six:

Use water to blend the colors. For the headband and the ring around the hair I used metallic paints. I used cool colors on my galaxy girl. Cool colors are: blue, green, purple, gray and some shades of pink that lean toward purple.

Step Seven:

Color the background with warm colors like yellow, orange, coral and pinks that leans toward red. You can add splatters around the page if you want. After that I added dots around the ring to simulate the way Saturn’s rings are formed by dust, rocks, ice and debris.

Step Eight:

Outline the most important details using the Tombow MONO Drawing Pen 01. In the girl’s eye you can see how an outline can clean up and accentuate certain details.

I love splatters on my art journal so I went a little crazy with them. When you put warm and cool colors together it makes the elements stand out by pulling them forward or back.
