It is July 4th and I want to wish you all a safe and happy 4th of July. For my first tutorial of the day I will be submitting a lesson on a picture from a book that I think a lot of you guys have read because you are fans of the past and upcoming movie. Are you ready for this next exciting tutorial? I am going to teach you “how to draw New Moon cover” from the Stephenie Meyer’s book series. The New Moon movie is due to be released in theaters in November and I have decided to go to the theater this time and catch the flick with my parents. I was going to go with a couple of friends but, since my mom is a fan, I will go with her. I watched a clip of the teaser trailer they had released for New Moon and I have to say it looks pretty dang exciting. Bella cutting her finger at her birthday party, Jasper running after her because he is attracted to her sweet smelling blood, Edward leaving Bella forever, Jacob all buffed and ready to save Bella from Laurent by turning into a wolf… I mean it all looks pretty exciting. The cover of the book has a pretty pink and white flower called a “ruffled tulip”. As you know the hand holding the apple on the cover of her first book “Twilight” had meaning to writer Stephenie Meyer. This time the publishing and marketing team chose the flower for the New Moon book cover so there is no meaning to it’s existence, except to make the book look pretty enough to buy. Anyway, I look forward to watching the movie when it is released. This weekend I will be buying the book to read before I watch the flick. I always like doing that. I did that with a number of movies including “Interview with the Vampire”, that was really good. Anyway, have fun with this tutorial on “how to draw New Moon Book” step by step. Peace out and happy 4th.
