I can't believe I have only put 4 blogs on this month, naughty Seligor. Blame the World Cup, I do like a lot of sport kids.

Have you dino's come to
have a look.... Nosey things, shoo.PASTIMES 4 U


Julie Duell (nee Henderson) is a 6th generation Australian going back to
the First Fleet to arrive in NSW in 1788. 
She also has a drop of American Shoshone Indian in her heritage.


First let’s look at drawing some different expressions. 
There are lots of ways to draw these, but these are just some.
Maybe you could print these out to play with.

 Drawing faces

Can you see how the shapes of the eyes and mouth can change the expressions –
and especially, the eyebrows!

OK – next I have printed out the first page  and had some fun adding hair, hats and other bits and pieces to them.  I had to decide whether they were girls or boys, what kind of hair they had and what they were wearing. Would you like to print out the first page and try it too? I’m sure you could make up some amazing characters!

Drawing faces
Was that fun?  Did you make some great characters?

Or you can draw or add colour and patterns like this…

Hey!  Would you like to draw a cute little Nemo clown fish?


Here are the steps for you to print out if you wish…

Next I want to share with you a cartoon trick you can use.

Have you ever wondered how Cartoonists make things look shiny?

Shiny effects
 Now what about drawing trees and houses in cartoons?

There are many different ways – here are just some…

 Houses and trees

Supposing you want to make up some characters to star in your comic strip story.  You will need to be able to draw them front on, side on and maybe a back view too.  One great way to practise is to get some plasticine and make a little model of any character you like.  Then sit it on the table and practise drawing it from different angles.   Nearly all shapes can be broken down into simple ones like circles, ovals etc. so that is a great way to start.  
Use pencil so that you can erase the joining up lines later…
Julie Duell goes on to show you how to make all these shapes plus many, many more wonderful things.

I forgot to tell you ------
Hello again, Seligor here. I guess you have all realised that the person talking between the Pastimes 4 U and the end are those of Julie Duell. She truly has a beautiful web site down there in New Zealand and I am sure she won't mind me telling you about her, for like me , her site is free and loved by many.
