Did some watercolor poppies for the wife, @monsterlogic . These were fun to doodle. The stems and leaves for this plant are weird, but interesting.
I used Strathmore 400 Series Watercolor Paper, A Red Pilot Color Eno pencil for the sketch, a kneaded eraser that I don't know the brand for. I inked with a Sakura Micron in 01 and did the majority of the coloring with Sakura Koi 48 pocket field sketch watercolor. I also used some Prisma Verithin pencils for some more detailed coloring. The white is a UniBall Signo in medium. I also used some Crayola glitter watercolors to add some fun sparkle to the petals.
I really want to use more of my traditional stuff this year, so fingers crossed that I do that.
We should start depicting unicorns as goats and cows as well again.
wait were unicorbs ever depicted as pigs because imagine a boar with an enormous fuck you narwhal horn on its forehead that sounds fuckimg terrifying and majestic
okay but the potentual behind this is pretty cool
boar unicorn with a boar hunting spear as its horn would be bad af!
*clears throat* moose....with an enormous 'fuck you' horn
For my mother this christmas, I did a marker drawing of a bristlecone pine. Earlier this year we went on a trip to see them along with some other sights in the west of the USA, these trees are her favorite. The oldest living non-clonal organisms on the planet! The oldest is over 5000 years old! When we were there, in the shadow of one of the trees, we even saw a couple of tiny tiny baby trees! Being up so high above sea level was wild--this was in October, and there was no snow where we were, but we could see snowy peaks from where we were.
