This was by far the most fun project all semester! It was a relief to not have to think about making this look as realistic as possible. Coming up with different patterns and color formations was one of the best parts. I definitely want to do more projects like this in the future!
The inspiration came from a colored pencil drawing that I did around 5 years ago. I never finished it, but I really liked the idea so I felt it was time to revisit it.
I've mentioned before in one of my Doodle Friday posts about the importance of keeping a sketchbook. I used to be a lot better at updating them when I was a teenager, but now I find myself only adding to it when I have an assignment coming up. Sketchbooks are great because it gives one a place to explore ideas and themes. I'd love to be able to make it a routine again to add to my sketchbook. Maybe a new life resolution?
Do any of you have a sketchbook that you draw or write in often?
