So, wouldn't X be pronounced deci? Hmmm.
anyway, that was a fun string, and what a combination of patterns... Wedge, Diva Dance, Snookum, Showgirl, and Ticking.
|Little Bit of Purple|
When it came time for shading, showgirl just simply didn't show up...so I colored the ticking purple, and did some purple shading on showgirl...so she shows up! ha! Showgirl doesn't really work that well in a corner. oh well.
The Diva's challenge was...Stripes. I decided to fill a full page of my big sketchbook. Stringing it, the stripes took on a Hollibaugh look, and filling them all up was loads of fun.
I used Pinbawl, MA XIII, Atorm, Huggins, Baton, Meer, Diamond Drop with Zinger (that's the stripe that looks like little bugs flying all in a line hahahaha), Shnek, Cle, Striping, Coil, Trimond, and N'zeppel. There is a band of jewel looking running across the striping. I don't know what it's called, but I found it clicking around on pinterest.
It is by Molossus, whose name some might recognize. Anyway, I found it when I was exploring steampunk a bit. And, some gems in the circles. Mmmmm.
Then, in the background I did some simple spirals in gray prismacolor pencil. Fun stuff, Maynard!
And, some playing I did in my old sketchbook...I just tucked it away today when i straightened up my "art nest"....
Playing with Dillo.
doesn't that look like bird wings?
