Once I had finished my Christmas orders I put the colour pencils down for a while and reverted back to black on white. I though about some simple designs that don't to hours to do, just for the fun of it......but with all things I do lately I got caught up in the detail and how much of it I could fit into each drawing. I must say that I am really happy with the results and my brain is just buzzing with where I can take it from here...
This was the first drawing that stated out so simple and then took on a life of its own.
And then of course, because I enjoyed making the first one so much I just had to keep going. This is the start of the second bird I did. I really like the tail on this one.
Once the outlines were done it was the onto all of the details in the flowers. I used a 0.2 fine line marker.
The bird's body is a series of dashes and the wing is a multi layered flower.
And this is the finished LOVE BIRD. I am hoping to have it available on a t-shirt in the not too distant future. I am thinking maybe flowered elephants next...any other suggestions?
