Remember last week’s spring coloring page? Andrea of FromTheSol grabbed the previous, unfinished version and had some coloring fun with it. But not only that, she also shared it with her readers on her blog. Why don’t you check it out? You will find it here. How awesome is that?!
Last weekend and during the week I have been doing more drawing and inking. I have actually started to zendoodle again. It is immensely relaxing for me, but at the same time makes me focus. Seems contradictory, but, trust me, it is not. My zendoodle piece isn’t finished yet, so I’d rather show you something else that I am working on, ‘The Tigress’, which is, well, half way finished. Why only half-ways you may wonder.
The thing is I got inspired by Denise’s blogpost last Friday, in which she shared with us one of her previous art pieces of a wolf. As well as a pencil sketch for a new one, a tiger. Please hop on over to Neesie’s blog, Neesie Natters, to see her wolf work of art here. Not only will you see her beautiful artwork, but you will also have a chance to win one of Denise’s art pieces in her latest blogpost.
Her post and drawings must have had a lasting impression on me, because before I knew it I was looking at tiger photos on google images and started drawing one myself. This is the photo reference I picked.
I sketched it with pencil in my sketchbook trying to follow the lines and markings of the tiger’s face. Then I decided to add some lettering to it and the tiger became a tigress. It is, however, only half finished, because my intent was to have this image as a template to fill with doodles. But then I thought, what if I colored it instead?
So there I was with my dilemma. Doodle or color? And it is still not solved, because neither have I colored nor zendoodled the tigress yet. Instead – I have started another picture – hahaha – oh well.
Maybe you would like to color it? Or doodle in the template? You are free to do so with the picture for download here. Let me know if you publish it somewhere, which would be uber-awesome, because then I will find it and give it some love.
Anyways, and just because I am always mesmerized by speedpaintings and cannot stop to watch the drawing develop, I am also sharing with you a quick pencil sketch I did of a ‘wild haired manga girl’. Hope you like it!
