Hi, my name is Daisy. I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw a Japanese sun. Now this is very graphical so you can use a ruler to do all the lines out from the sun. You're going to draw a perfect circle and color that in. Now yours can be in the middle of the page or on the side. I like a little bit of asymmetry so I'm making mine a little bit over to the side and then this is where you're going to be using your ruler drawing long straight lines coming out from the sun. Now this is going to be really easy once you get the hang of it, just make the angles slightly different so that they're thicker at the bottom than they are from the sun. I like to make mine as big as possible so I'm going to make them go all the way off the page. Then you just keep going all the way around, they can be at different angles. If you want to get really precise you can measure the in between bits around the sun. It's also fun just to have a play and this is why I made mine all the way over here because I like these long rays come all the way across. What's really cool once it's all colored in so then if you get all your rays in, you're going to color in all the same color. You can make them different if you like but the typical way to draw this is with no outlines and coloring everything in the same. But if you like you can make it yellow, all orange, all red or even pink. Pink is pretty cool for a sun, especially when it's so graphic so you're going to keep filling these in as much as we can to get the full effect. Then you'll see how cool it really looks. And there you go. My name is Daisy and that' show you draw a Japanese sun.
