Okay, it is the same panda, but one way done on a black tile with Sakura Gel Pen and the other was done on a white tile using Tombow Mono “graphite” pencils.
Sakura came out with new color pens, so I decided I had to test them. Below are a few of the small drawing I created recently using the new colors and some of the old colors. This is the first time ever I tried to draw a peacock, cottage, and gazebo.
For January, I drew on two tiles per day. One tile was white and one tile black. Some were nice, some were not so nice. Below are the better tiles. I used Studio Series Artist’s Tiles, Micron pen on white, and Sakura pens on black. Shading with a pencil made some of the tiles beautiful.
Here is my Inktober Drawing for 2019. It was done on a 20×16 Bristol Board. I used the Zentangle method for the drawing. I marked the four corner, drew wavy lines and circles. I made sure there was 31 sections and use the 2019 Zentangle Inktober list to fill one section a day. On October 31, I shaded all section of the drawing. Below is the results.
I also did mini (3.5″ x 3.5″) drawings for Inktober. I used the list provided by Pattern-Collection website. Those drawings are on the Drawings page.
Here is my latest drawing on four tiles. Almost from the very from the first curve that went down on the paper, I was saying to myself “Nope! I don’t like that.” I few more curves and a little color, still “I don’t like that.” But, I decided instead of trashing the tiles I would complete the drawing and put the tiles away to never to be seen again.
Somewhere towards the end, either when the green leaves were being drawn or the blue background was being added, my opinion of the drawing changed to “Okay, now that really look cool.”
I like neon colors. The pinks, the yellows, the oranges – how they look vibrant on the paper. Below are some of my latest drawing where I experimented with neon colors, and black and white pens to create drawings and their backgrounds.
The Windmill effect is one of the better ones. Done with Neon Sharpies and Sakura gel pens.
The first background I did with Neon Sharpies and Sakura Gel Pens. The white gel pens did not show as much as I would have liked, but I wanted to keep the lines simple.
Stadler Fine point neon markers were used for this drawing.
Busy with stars!
Cheap neon color pencils and Stadler Fine point neon markers were used to color the circles.
Flowers and more flower. Neon Sharpies and Faber Castell Pitt pens were used. I probably should have used a thicker point pen.
And finally the best for last. This drawing was done on Bristol Board using Faber Castell Pitt Pens and Neon Sharpie Markers.
Well, pretty is in the eye of the beholder. Below are some of my more recent drawings that I think are pretty.
Day twenty-five into the 100 Mandalas in 100 Days Challenge I am on number 40. Below are some of the latest mandalas that I like.
This mandala was done with neon gel pens.
This is the same on as above, but shown under blacklight.
This mandala was done with the doctor’s office’s ballpoint pen while waiting.
All of the mandalas are shown on the Mandalas Challenge page.
I do not know how this week’s drawing were all in color. There are normally more black/white drawings than color. I guess I was in a colorful mood.
