Red Planet and Red Dust Nebula frame by frame.
I combined these two drawings because the Red Dust Nebula was create from the first frame of the Red Planet drawing. Another good reason to duplicate your work. Some peaces may come in handy on another day.
🔗 Red Planet
In the first frame I placed a line where the sun should set. To draw the red glow, I use the watercolor tool with white as color (you can only use white since the background is black), after the white you can use a red watercolor to go over the white. Used Pencil to blur.
In the second frame the sun is added but in this case no full sun is necessary. The fountain pen was used to draw the white sun and Pencil to blur some white from the sun into the red to get a yellow/orange glow.
For the large planet (the one where the sun sets behind) I used the watercolor tool and the fountain pen in different colors and blurred them with Pencil in one direction.
In the Fourth and final frame the Red Planet is added. First I used the fountain pen to draw a circle, then used the soft lead pencil (using the zoom tool) to fill in the details. After all is done, the stars are added. Stars have different colors, in the red glow I used different colors then where the background is black. I always use the soft lead pencil to draw stars.
🔗 Red Dust Nebula
The first frame is taken from the Red Planet drawing and I used Pencil to blur it into a different shape. With the fountain pen I added some lines into the cloud and blurred them with Pencil.
Just as in the Red Planet drawing, I used the fountain pen to draw the planets and filled the details with the soft lead pencil.
