Hi there, how are you?
This week I have been making lots of little owl doodles. Each of the sketches are about an inch to 1½ inches in size.
The first page (below) was drawn with blue fountain pen ink; I spilled water on this page and ruined it! One of the perils of using water soluble ink, still have the scan though phew.
Learning my lesson I drew the second page with black waterproof ink. They’re all a little ski-wiff and lots of fun to draw.
I wanted to see if I could turn these scrappy thumbnail sized sketches into something more finished, placed the scan in procreate and used some of the owls as a template to draw over the top.
My procreate skills are very basic but they are OK for a first attempt.
The little owl watercolour at the top of the post was also drawn from one of the little thumbnails. I placed her on top of a tree stump in a small clearing so she’s not floating around on a white page.
The sketch had a woolly hat on and since we’re in December I turned it into a Christmas hat (trying to get into the seasons spirit.)
I can see the issues but don’t yet have the skills to fix them yet, more practice me thinks.
Backgrounds are something I suck at so I’m trying to practice using them more, it’s a start.
Who knows maybe eventually I’ll know what I’m doing hehehe.
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by. Till next time, have fun x
