Gear Head

There is something so cool about clockworks and gears. I’m sure the entire steam-punk movement has been based on people’s love of the beautiful and perfect way gears fit and work together, totally unlike my doodle. Who even knows what these mechanical works are doing. It’s probably some crazy clock factory explosion that has been captured in doodle form.

It is growing increasingly difficult to pick color combinations I’ve never used before despite the fact that I now have one million colors. I’ve been thinking I need to go buy MORE markers, but they are just so expensive. Maybe I’ll start doing it one at a time with a 40% off coupon. These colors are distinctly muted and remind me very much of army fatigues. I almost wished I had done it in simple black and white since there isn’t really a focal point, but live and learn I suppose.

 

 

I wished I had some rust red, but I went with army colors instead.

Next up are some more flower doodles, and possibly something a little larger. You will just have to wait and see what I can finish next.

Here Be Dragons and Markers

Since I have the best husband ever, I now also have the most awesome markers ever! For our 23-month wedding anniversary, MrE Bought me the giant pack of Prismacolor brush tip artist markers i have been lusting after! I tested them out on my palette page and can’t wait to use them on some sweet new doodles.

So many markers...*drool*

I also got a teeny tiny Moleskine notebook to start doing tiny doodles when the mood strikes me.

Steampunk Fantasy

I’ve been branching out into different subjects, as you may have noticed in past doodles. There is an artist I really admire, Kirby Rosanes, who does some truly ridiculous and awesome art. I took a page out of his Moleskine, ha, and tried something steampunk:

Just wind him up and set him loose.

Just wind him up and set him loose.

Compared to Kirby, this little dude is but a meager steampunk baby. This is probably a doodle topic I will return to in the future.

Which Line Drawings Are Worth Finishing?

I took some snapshots of all the rest of my unfinished line drawings, so far, from my sketchbook. Which, if any, should I go ahead and finish? 

Some of these attempts are laughable at best, so don’t feel bad if you think they are terrible rubbish. 

Iris

Here is the fabled Iris doodle. I may still finish this one–the drawing is good, but just so detailed. I would just marker over the words i think, or white them out. 

Gears and combs

I’m not sure why I never colored this one in. It’s another one that isn’t too bad. 

Make it stop!

Newp.

Newp.

Don’t like it. What was I thinking?

Meh

Meh

It’s alright. It could be so much worse.

Which do you think I sould color in? Or what can I do to make up for some of these attrocities?
