In this video from Castle Arts we show you how to draw and shade a symmetric medusa using our 40 Piece Premium Quality Drawing Set. For this illustration we use blue barrelled pencils in B, 2B and 4B, paper and twin-tipped blenders, kneadable erase and sanding block, all contained in the 40 Piece Set.

You can also download an A4 PDF tutorial which guides you through the techniques used to shade and blend the illustration. The PDF also includes a pencil sketch outline of the medusa so you can print out and practice as many times as you like.

Once you've completed your medusa artwork, upload to Instagram using the hashtag #castlearts, we would love to see and share your artwork. Enjoy!
