Shading makes all the difference. I did not create this drawing for Inktober. It was just something I though of while I was traveling. It was done on 16″x20″ Bristol Board with Micron Pens and #2 pencil for shading. My drawing for Inktober is locate on my Drawing Page using the recommendation of the Pattern-collection group:
Flowers and more flowers. Done with Derwent Inktense Pencils on 16″ x 20″ Carson Artboard. Inktense is like watercolor pencils, the only difference is once water is applied, it’s permanent. One tip I used was, if you outline in color pencils, it will help with the bleeding. So, I used Prismacolor pencil on the outline.
I am calling this drawing Sunflower Explosion, because it kind of exploded out of the mandala it was supposed to be contained within.
Drawn on Carson Art Board using Sakura Gel Pens.
It also glows under a black light.
This mandala was the result of me getting a design / pattern stuck in my head and the need to put it on paper. Is was done on a 16″ x 20″ using Sakura gel pens.
After the design was put on paper, I thought the background was to plain. I colored it with watercolor ink using a sponge.
It took me a while to post this drawing. I been trying to figure out if I could adjust my camera settings to take a better picture. That hasn’t worked out so well, yet. I think what I need is to put more light in the room.
I call it weird. Others call it pretty.
I’ve been busy doing other things, but I have managed to do a few 3.5″ x 3.5″ drawings. Most of these drawings were done to test the pen colors for larger drawings.

This mandala was create on 16″ x 20″ Carson Black Art Board using Sakura Metallic pens. It did not come out exactly as I expected, but the lines did provide a basket effect.
This drawing was done on a 16″ x 20″ Carson Black Art Board using Sakura Moonlight pens. Once the center was done, the edge went in it own direction.
This mandala was done on 16″ x 20″ Carson Black Art Board using Sakura Metallic pens. When I am using colors in my drawings, I like using as many different colors as possible.
I first sketched in a grid using circles and lines, then I applied the color.
