I spent the day in bed today feeling, well, bad. Still, the show must go on, so here are the doodles I managed to do since Saturday.
Well, it turned out botanical after all.
It had been a while since I last used AI to do something so here it is.
This is me trying to figure out what I am able to do in AI. I’m also looking for my own personal style while studying the work of artists I like.
This is the original:
I will try doing the other plants next chance I get.
The challenge goes on.
Those little colored leaves over there are my plants from yesterday, because I did not have the time to do much more than that.
I learned how to do these cacti and succulents today through a Skillshare class on botanical doodles, taught by Peggy Dean (same teacher from the class I took for those flower and wreath doodles from before).
I might post more drawings here later today, though I can’t guarantee they will be botanical.
This time of the year where I live a Japanese festival is held, at the end of August. I always look forward to it.
You know that moment when you regret adding something to your drawing? That “oh shit, should have left it the way it was” moment? Yeah. This is all part of my “color rehab”, only it still has a long long way to go…
The above drawing is my version of this image I found, again, on Pinterest:
Today I decided to draw some beautiful flowers I had found on Pinterest.
Here are the ones I made from looking at that pin.
I did not know how big they were going to get on the page, and ended up having to divide them between two pages. Lots of negative space, sure, but this was just a study after all.
Here is today’s plant drawing! It is a nymphea flower (Nymphaeaceae).
The weekend was not very productive, but I did a little doodle here and there just to keep the challenge going. They are quite ridiculous since I did them on a rush.
There is something very important you need to know about me: I am a Studio Ghibli fan, and a Hayao Miyazaki fan, and I like animes.
Now, this is not my design, I don’t know who made the original one I found online, but I wanted to try doing it on AI.
And this is the original art.
I decided I was done when all I could think of to put in there where snails and frogs and little gnomes.
Maybe next time I will put a little Buddha statue instead.
