I give to thee a new swirly that I had been putting off because the fire part was too daunting for me.
Well, I’ve been working on getting an online store front going. I am anal for details, and so this is taking much longer than I anticipated. Every time I finish one step, that step leads to 3 new steps I didn’t realize I’d need to do.
I hope to have some better new stuff to post soon, but in the meantime, here’s a colour version of my Croc Eye quick sketch, and some clouds I drew because I’ve never drawn them before. All digitally hand drawn in GIMP.
Now the clouds.
I use exclamations so as to trick you into thinking this is exciting and interesting stuff!
OK, a lot more, but if another artist can paint a blue dog multiple times, and another can just stick a big rope to a canvas, surely I can be forgiven for recolouring all my work in this colour scheme. (Wow that came out sounding a LOT more condescending than I intended… which is to say I intended none at all. OK, maybe a smidgen about the rope.)
Before I started drawing I loved colouring. The more complex the picture to colour, the better I liked it. I was absolutely OCD about staying in the lines though, to the extent that, had I by accident gone outside of the lines between which I intended to colour, I would toss out the whole thing, offended by its very existence. On a related note, in kindergarten, whenever one of my finger-paintings did not meet my standards, I would paint a gigantic X across the entire page, and start over… much to the dismay of my teacher.
I digress, my intention was to post Swirly things which I have experimented with colours on. Mostly because I need to start keeping up with at least semi-regular posts, and to have an excuse for having spent too much time on colouring these damned things, so, without further ado here are some I’ve done so far:
Wow, I’ve been neglecting you, haven’t I? Well here’s a drawing that took me eons to make up for it.
It’s graphite on bristol paper, and I actually intend on adding a background, but my favourite part is done so I’m impatient to post it! You’ll notice an incongruous white block… err sorry ’bout that, I had to scan it in two parts, and for some reason I clipped the bottom of the human half.
