We all know those adorable little gnomes that adorn houses and yards every Christmas – and now we have everything you need to bring your own to life in just a few short steps! Ready to create a Christmas gnome? then let’s get started.
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start with a black fineliner, and draw a small oval shape in the top of your page.
Add a long, wavy shape to the top of this, and connect the ends with curved lines – this will be the bottom of your gnomes hat!
Bring a wavy line up on either side and join these at the top with a point, curving across to the right.
Add two hands, and then connect these with a straight, horizontal line in the center.
Add lines to the bottom of the hands to create a rectangle…
And then draw jagged lines on either side to create a beard, joining these at the bottom to curve the bottom of the beard to the left.
Add a curve to the bottom right of the beard, and then another, shorter curve to the left.
Now, add curved shapes to the bottom for feet, and add curves to the bottom to create the shoes for your gnome.
Add a series of marks all across the beard to add texture.
Use the black pen to write a cheerful message, “Merry Christmas” across the placard.
Then, add curved stripes to the hat…
And use a bright orange pen to shade the spaces between the stripes, and the tops of the shoes.
Grab another orange pen, and shade the hands and nose…
And then use a green pen to shade the bottom of the shoes and the edges of the beard.
Now, did you ever see such as jolly, happy fellow? That should surely be enough to get you into the Christmas spirit!
