I like flowers. Rose is one of my favorites. I have some growing in the garden. There is where I got the idea of making a drawing of a rose first, then fill the outlines with color. I tried Illustrator, but I think PS worked much better.

I used the smudge tool, as I have done in some of my works, and the blending is amazing. (5 years and 1490 days ago)

Sorry guys, it is hard for me to pronounce the name of this beautiful flower.

We got some long ago, different colors and shapes, and wanted to share a photo and a drawing of one of them.

This drawing was done using a felt pen. (5 years and 1489 days ago)

I did this about 7 years ago, it was for line practice. I never got around to shading or coloring it and to be honest, I never really figured out which would look best on it. The drawing took over a week to do, had to restart a couple of times and lots of erasing along the way.

No 2 Pencil
art gum eraser
Black Ink

Note: to do this type of drawing, you use a light board and graph paper, you do your drawing on a paper over the graph paper. You do 1/4 of the drawing, then you use that as your visual guide for the rest in reveres
or upside down. (5 years and 1487 days ago)
