Very Big Sketchbook – Page 6


I really like how this page turned out. I love the depth, the natural elements snd the mixtures of greens. I used gel pens, color pencils, and Staedtler Pens. I decided to embellish the end of the page with Washi Tape. 

Tell me your thoughts on this page. 

For The Horde!


This piece was so delightful. For those of you who don’t know, I am a long time player of World of Warcraft, a mmorpg made by Blizzard. I have been playing since, what we like to call, vanilla wow, which simply means, World of Warcraft before any expansions. Along with playing the game, I have also been a long-time Horde player, which is the cause for the symbol below. I’m sure I could do better if I drew the symbol more, but I think this is pretty good for my first time.

I used several pens and color pencils for this, all of which were Staedtler. Staedtler pigment liners for the black, Staedtler fineliners for the red dots, and Staedtler color pencils for the symbol colored in.

If you also play WOW, I would love to know! Let me know in the comments below.

 

Lunchtime Doodle – 01/24/17.


So, today I just decided to doodle at lunch today. These  were done around 45 minutes. They are by far not my best doodles, but I feel like it’s important to show the viewers even the pieces that didn’t take any time to complete.

Using doodling as a relaxation tecinque has raised my production in the afternoon. I dont find myself hitting the 3pm wall that I am so used to hitting. Not to mention, I am using my downtime to produce something unique.

What relaxation techniques do you use?

Dolphin mandala


I drew this for a friend of mine for Christmas. I love being able to share these projects now that Christmas is over. 

I wanted to add some special details so I added a few metallic pens to just give a little life to the dolphin itself. 

What do you think about the finished product? Tell me in the comments below. 

Joey’s challenge #124


 

Joeys-124

This one was fun and very out of my comfort zone. I learned a new tangle called Gra-vee. All the while I had to use a circle string with a loop in the center. I decided to add color to this piece because I felt like it gave it more dimension.
