I thought I’d share these two different doodles. I made a traditional drawing in my sketchbook first, and a couple of days later it inspired a digital doodle of the same cute flower creatures.
I like both doodles, but the digital definitely took longer to make. I tried out a drawing style that looks like it’s drawn with marker on paper.
Using my sketchbook as inspiration for digital drawings is nice. Then I don’t have to think of something to draw, but I can use my energy on trying new colouring techniques.
When I made the previous post (Orange pepper), I realised that I didn’t have a garden tag on the blog. So now there is one!
Since moving into a house I have plants on my mind a lot of the time. I guess they’re a classic thing to draw, and I’m very bad at drawing leaves and trees and stuff like that. So I’ll probably post more practice doodles of indoor and outdoor green things on here 🙂
Walking home from a coffee date with my roommate from uni (shoutout to her – we still call each other “roomie” even though it’s been many years since we lived together and were always late for class, and she probably won’t read this, because she’s not a very big social media person but very present in real life, which I find very cool, but anyway!) – I walked past two girls having a very friendly and mild-mannered argument.
They could have been a couple, but the argument almost sounded too friendly to be a partner argument – for instance, I didn’t hear the sentence “you always [something something]” 😀
The fun thing is that it took me a while to figure out what they were talking about. Walking by, I heard one of them say:
“If one of them has to die, it should be that one…”
(I didn’t eavesdrop on purpose, you guys! Really! I was walking normally minding my own business. Anyway!)
I then figured out from the next words that I caught in passing that they were talking about plants, both rooting (hehehehehe!) for a specific plant to stay in the apartment.
Also, I didn’t really look at them, because I’m not THAT creepy, so I made up their looks in the doodle.
There are ramsons everywhere around the city right now, and it’s so nice with something green to look at outside (before the garlic smell takes over later in Spring).
Btw I had to look up what these plants are called in English, because I only knew the Danish term “ramsløg” – (rams onions). I of course ended up reading about the etymology of the word, because linguistics!
I’m digging the digital at the moment, so I drew this in Illustrator with my Wacom drawing tablet.
