Hi, I'm Rosalie and I'm and artist and I'm going to show you how to draw a shadow puppet. This shadow puppet is being made by two hands. The thumbs are interlocked. I'm just drawing that like this. I'm drawing one hand with the thumb up. And the fingers, 1, 2,3,4. Kind of a long hand. You could bring the finger ones down a little bit. And then there's another thumb there. It's like this, crossed. And the thumbs are sort of crossed together, pressed together. And thumb is part of this hand. 1,2,3,4 fingers on that hand too. Again these hands came out a little long, but you get the idea. The palms are facing in and they're creating a shadow on the wall. Which, you look at this and then you just make it the same. As close as you can. It would be a little bigger than the hands because the shadow is bigger, it flows out. And then just color that in right around and just color it in making the shadow. And that's how I draw a shadow puppet. It's a bird, it's like making a bird shape. Like this. .That's how I draw a shadow puppet.
