How to draw a meteor shower.


How to draw a meteor shower?
Believe it or not. it's really easy.
All you do is draw the meteors using reverse tone. Black equals white and so on. Then simply scan your drawing and transform it into negative using a photographic enhancement programme.
The recent meteor showers have reached a dazzling peak. The Perseid Meteor Show. AKA the Tears of St. Lawrence, named due to the anniversary of his martyrdom AD 258.
I observed one last night, I think it was a meteor? It didn't look like a plane. It must have been a meteor because it disappeared along a trajectory. What with the Moon and local light pollution and cloud cover.
My drawings are based on some photographs I observed on the BBC NEWS website.
