I love when I combine my own little touches to popular characters or objects that have been around for ages. I was looking through my things a few days ago and found an old jack in the box from when I was seven years old. As I was turning the handle to listen to that old music riddle, the jack pops out of the box. I looked at the springing toy and smiled. That is when it hit me; I should draw a sketch on a jack in the box with added personal touches. The initial rough sketch came out pretty cool and it gave me an idea on what I wanted the drawn out image to look like. The face idea came from the jester that I drew a week ago and the springing body resembles the jack in the box toy that I actually own. In the coloring process I also wanted to add some “Killer Klowns” effects. If you’re wondering what I’m talking about when I say “Killer Klowns”, I’m referring to the eighties horror movie that was about aliens that came to earth and set up a circus to lure kids in. The aliens where dressed up and disguised as a bunch of performing clowns. So, in light of that movie I drew in some green slim that drips from the edges onto the floor. The coloring came out wicked cool, although I do have to say that I could have done a better job at making the image look a bit brighter. Even though the drawing looks difficult, it’s actually quite easy. When I laid out this lesson on how to draw a jack in the box step by step, I wanted to make sure that almost everyone was able to tackle this sketch with little or no problems. The best part about this tutorial; you can get creative and add your own personal touches to make your jack in the box to your liking. Every kid at some point in their lives owned a jack in the box toy. The way that kids look when the handle turns to play the riddling music and out jumps a surprise, is absolutely priceless. I hope you all like this lesson; I took some quality time with it to make it appealing for all audiences. I will return with more drawing fun so stay tuned my fellow artists; there is more on the way.
