This flower was done over lunchtime today. If you’ve been following the Lunchtime Doodle series you will know that I have less than 45 minutes to create each piece. I purchased artist tiles that are the perfect size for this time frame. The lines are not perfect, but that it what this challenge is about. What can you create in less than 45 minutes? This was very fun to do and I just felt in a swirly funky mood. This is what happens when you just go with your soul. I hope you enjoy it, I would love to know your favorite part in the comments!
This is something I just had to share. If you recall my latest Very Big Sketchbook post, you will notice that the flowers on there were something that I was playing around with. I decided that I was going to play a little more and see what I could come up with. This just might be my new favorite flower. I love how it seems like its spinning and adding the swirl to the very center completed the cycle.
I used Staedtler Pigment liners, .05 for the outline and .01 for the detail. I also completed this on an Artist Tile, which is about 3″x3″. The little squares are so perfect for my limited time over lunch!
I think I’m going to start keeping track of all these different flowers for reference. Do you have certain flowers that you like to draw? How do you keep track of them all? Tell me in the comments below!
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.
