Well pretty soon Halloween will be here and then after that comes the month of November. With this month comes another holiday that is celebrated by many cultures (including mine), which is Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is a traditional North American holiday that is celebrated with a feast that usually consist of a large turkey, cranberry sauce, assorted nuts, danishes, pastry, stuffing, mashed potatoes, veggies, and other yummy food that we all love. So, having said that what you will be learning how to draw today is a traditional cornucopia step by step. Thanksgiving is celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November for the U.S or on the second Monday in October in Canada. What the feast represents is a replication of the fest that took place back in 1621 by the Pilgrims and the Native Americans. They celebrated with a feast to say thank you to their native friends that helped them survive in the New World. It was the help from the Patuxet Native Americans who lived with the Wampanoag tribe. They taught the pilgrims how to catch eel and grow corn. I love Thanksgiving, not only because of all the food we get to eat, but because it is the one month that the entire family comes together to celebrate a truly fun day. I love seeing relatives I haven’t seen in years my brothers and sisters always laugh as all the adults get drunk and stupid. I have to say my family is a laugh riot. In this tutorial I will show you how to draw a cornucopia step by step. This bundle of fruits and vegetables is a typical traditional image that represents the Thanksgiving holiday and means "horn of plenty". I hope you have fun with this tutorial I will be back soon with more for you all to learn from. Peace out and keep drawing.
