Just a little scribbly one. Thought if I started out setting the bar low then I wouldn't need to worry too much about what I shat out in the coming month so long as I did at least something each day. In my early teens I remember quite clearly an occasion when our art teacher set us homework to paint a still life of a bowl of fruit. This was not a topic that interested me so what I produced in about 15 minutes was a plain bowl with a token apple and banana in. It was not very good. The art teacher looked at it, delivered to me what you would call A Hard Stare and informed me that I could do better, couldn't I? I mumbled some shamefaced agreement whilst inwardly being totally not sorry I hadn't spent any more time on it. This picture makes me think of that moment... Yes I could have done better but then I didn't actually try and rather than being ashamed I shall instead own that =)
It's still scribbly but I put more thought into this one. I like the concept and style of angler fish but to me their general appearance is kind of dumpy and I don't find that I wish to draw them like that. I also like gulper eels but they are kinda gawky. BUT.. combine the two and we have something I'm happy to draw.
6 06-10-2017 Not my best work. Sorrynotsorry. Finished up another old and blah sketch.
The full colour version of this lady's over in the 'Paintings' section. The original ink doodle was something I never quite got around to finishing. It still doesn't look very finished but hey. Near enough.
Dragon head. Added some finishing touches to a half done piece from ages ago.
Another abandoned doodle (from about 2010 this time). I didn't like how the dragon's head was working out, got fed up and wandered off for ... several ... years. I'm still not very happy with it. Ah well.
Puppy! Compare this to the last few days you can see I've suddenly perked up. Doubtless on some level this reflects my state of mind out in the real world too. I'd been very stressed out to the point I was off sick. Then I started to get the hang of myself again here.
Scribblysketchysketchsketch. There's more than just black ink out there... after this one I started pulling a few more colours out of the pencil case.
Stress dragon. Doodled as a distraction while having a difficult conversation... but given that was the nature of the first of this series, I'm going to point out here that this is a much better doodle.
