Doodles and what-have-you

I like making things…..

Pattern design

hh.tif

My stippling pattern is finished. I really enjoyed creating this. Not sure if stippling is the best technique. Some exploration is required I think.

Shapes and a sofa day

A day on the sofa with the sketchbook and mathematical drawing set produced this. Not sure where it’ll go but I’m content with where it’s at.

More of that stippling doodle

Simply, just more added to the previous drawing in the sketchbook.

Take a walk

It was a lovely, if a little nippy, day on Monday so I took a walk around the local woodland park. Here’s a few photos, taken on my trek. Getting out, on a day off from the 9-5 was great at clearing the head out. Some new ideas coming soon.

Stippling Doodle

A little stippling doodle that formed very much on a whim. I seem to revert to this technique every so often. Maybe that’s a sign? I dunno.

Creature Combination – FINAL

Here are the final pieces. Hand drawn with pencil and letraset markers, then scanned and coloured digitally. I added the creatures name, and the Latin variant, in the lower corner to appear as if these were taken from a scientific illustration manual of sorts.

Another promarker piece. Not as elaborate as the last. I wanted to play off my love/actual ability to draw animals by ‘mashing’ up a few into a new hybrid. In order to help this look I felt it should appear mildly like a scientific illustration, so it floats on a white background. Once scanned and cleaned I think a small species description may accompany.

I’m really into the marker aesthetic. I think it’s working well.
