Nine Minute Ninja!
HE YAWNS It's a new day.
I better get my ninja on.
And my clothes!
With ninja skills come giant responsibilities,
and sometimes, other giant stuff, too.
I think I'll have some porridge.
Who's been eating my porridge?
What is that noise?
No-one's there. That's weird.
This is a whopper!
It's big enough to be something...Jurassic.
But that's just crazy, right?
I've had so many dreams recently, I feel a bit tired.
I need a hand. Or maybe I need...
the Art Ninja giant hand!
So, I've got a nice big piece of card.
And using my hand as a guide, I'm going to draw a massive hand.
We cut that out.
It's looking pretty good.
I need a strap so I can wear the hand.
So, I'm going to make that by rolling up
a piece of corrugated cardboard.
There we go.
Going to hold that together with some masking tape.
And do another one.
It's looking pretty good.
Now I need to pad it out to look like a real hand.
So, I'm going to roll up some newspaper into sausage shapes
and wrap them round my fingers.
Go round like that.
I'm using masking tape, just because paper mache sticks to it better.
Sticky tape has kind of got a glossy coating,
and the glue doesn't take to it very well.
Now I'm doing the palm.
Have a look at your own hand and see where the muscle's built up.
So, I've got this big pad here for my thumb. There.
And now I'm going to wrap some newspaper around the wrist.
I'm wrapping whole pages over like this, just to smooth it off a bit.
Right. It's all held down nice and tight. Ready for paper mache.
So, I've got some mix here.
Two parts glue, one part water, and some little squares of newspaper.
I'm going to give it a good, generous covering.
You need to do maybe two or three layers of this, and that's
just to stiffen it up and make it nice and strong, ready for painting.
It's messy, but so relaxing to do.
Right, I'm going to add a bit of detail to the front now.
And that is going to be some nails. So, I've cut out some card.
I'm not going to paper mache over the tip of the nails,
so the nails still have a nice sharpness to them.
And just one layer should do it here.
Leave this to dry.
That's ready for painting. My flesh colour.
You can mix up a colour that matches your skin.
Great. I need that to dry and to add some detail.
So, I'm going to use some ninja skills.
Yeah, check that out!
Now I've added some detail here,
with some darkening of the knuckles to give them definition,
and I've painted the nails to make them look more realistic.
Now for some finishing touches.
How about a thumb ring made from gold card?
And a nice friendship band made from plaited paper.
Well, I think that deserves a big hand!
You don't have to make a giant hand. How about...
A big hairy foot with colourful nails?
Or a monster claw.
It gets a thumbs up from me.
Today for the animation, I've got a really, really big idea.
Oh, Rich, no!
ART NINJA GROANS
That was close!
Don't worry, mate, it's just an animation,
and it's all a matter of perspective.
So, to make this animation, you'll need...
A large open space, some friends,
and a tablet or smartphone with animation app.
And you can put it together in just three Ninja Moves.
Ninja Move number one.
You want somebody to be big in frame, and somebody to be small.
So, they need to be different distances away from the tablet.
Do a couple of experiments to get the distance just right,
and top tip, keep the tablet as low to the floor as possible.
Ninja Move number two. It's time to start shooting.
Now, the person behind the camera has a really important role,
cos they have to direct both actors, and one is miles away.
And the trick here is to make it look like the two are interacting.
Ninja Move number three.
Oh. Well, there is no Ninja Move number three.
We finished the animation ages ago.
Let's play it.
Oh, Rich, no!
ART NINJA GRUNTS
-What do you think, Rich?
-Gnarly to the max.
What do you think, Ella?
Here's a quick art tip. How to draw a pirate ship.
So, I'm going to start with the waterline,
and that's just joined up curves.
Now I'm going to draw the hull of the ship.
So, it's going to have a curve at the front,
a rectangle that juts out, that's going to be the bow.
Down here to make the deck.
And then a rectangle that sticks out the back,
and a similar curve for the stern.
Now you need some cannon holes,
cos a pirate ship had lots of sea battles.
Just a couple of detail lines here, cos the ship is made out of wood.
And these be the planks.
Now, some nice big sails to push it along.
I'm going to angle them like this so that they're catching the wind.
I'm going to draw these two masts connecting up my sails.
At the very top, these little flags as well.
It wouldn't be a pirate ship without a skull and crossbones.
There we go. Another quick art tip.
What's that noise?
LOUD SNORING CONTINUES
Oh, what? It's my dad!
Oi, what you doing?
More like what are you doing in my bed?!
Mum's been keeping me awake with her snoring
and I needed to catch up with some Z's.
I thought you were the Yeti of Bristol!
I know I'm hairy, but that's a bit much.
I've got art to make, and YOU had better make my bed.
Now go to the website and get your ninja on.
