Images for "Basics for Kids"
Add a cloudy sky, for fun. Notice that the sky gets darker as it rises from the horizon?
You can make your picture look more real if you decide where the light is coming from, and make everything a little lighter where it is closest to the source of the light. Places that get almost no light are the darkest.
You can plan your "negative shapes" too. Sometimes the empty space between parts of your picture also has a shape of its own. In this picture, the negative shapes make two fairies.
You don't usually give away the secret of what is in your negative shape, but it's fun to think about what it might be. In the picture below, there's a duck under the angel's right arm. Can you see it?
