How to draw a Cartoon Worm
There are over 3000 different kinds of earthworm in the world. Most of them
are just a few centimetres long. The biggest grows twice as tall as a man!
I decided to paint this worm on the computer using the 'rubber stamp' tool.
Almost all painting programs have a rubber stamp which allows you to repeat
an image on the page just by moving the mouse around.
We will go into that in detail in a minute, but first the eyes...
Place them on a LAYER, not the background, because we are going to put the
worms body below them
Now using the rubber stamp on a layer below the eyes, find a stamp that looks
like a chocolate button. There will be a setting called 'step' and if you
set this to "1" and draw a worm shape...
You get this.
The rubber stamp I used has produced thousands of copies of the chocolate
button all very close to each other to make a tube.
The body is a lumpy blob called the clitellum about where you might imagine
a head would be.
Finally I added a mouth and placed an apple on a new layer behind the worm.
Its not great art... Its not even great cartooning, but the computer's rubber
stamp is a great tool for quick and easy images. Why not send
in your own pictures showing how you used the rubber stamp?
