Lovely Poodle

My Lovely Poodle picture is also a scribbler.
I actually discovered the full thing, and then just erased some stuff and added a nose along with extra details.
At first I couldn't figure out how to do the fur, but then I colored it a cream color and used the finger smudge affect to make it appear fluffy. Later though my brother said in order to make poodle fur you just need to draw curls. I thought about that and then went ahead and added whiter curls over the fluffy cream fur I had already added.
It came out quite nicely in my opinion. And the way I knew how poodle fur was supposed to look is because my friend Olivia has a pet poodle, the big kind that's all fluffy.
The last thing I added were the hearts in the background. I thought the background looked sorta empty and plain, so I added the heart to match with the collar. And then looking at all the hearts and the cute look of the dog, I decide to name her Lovely Poodle.

A very different Alice

I did this one on the same day that I also did the butterfly.
At first this peculiar Alice that I found in a scribble was going to be something else like an Asian looking doll or an allian, which was actually the first thing I saw. But once I began working on her and I drew the hair I started seeing this strange stylized Alice in Wonderland.
This normally isn't my style of drawing, but since it was a scribble it kinda just came out this way and I went with it.
The part I like doing most was her hair and eyes. I especially like making the eyes nice and sparkly.
Doing the background was pretty simple. All I had to do was draw lines and then fill in the checkers to make that checkered floor look. Then just a touch a gray on each black block to make in have a glossy look.
The other part I had fun with was adding the makeup. And I found out that using the water marker tool in Open Canvas works great when it comes to adding blush that's not too bright yet still noticeable.
One other thing about this art style is that I seem to draw things more in this style when I'm sad. Not that when I did Alice and the butterfly it was only a day after I had said good bye to my close friend Olivia.

Scribble art

A certain art form I discovered long ago was scribble art, as I call it.
I used to do it on the old simple paint program when I was younger, but now that I've picked back up the nack of doing scriblers I use the Open canvas program.
Scribblers are quite simple, you just scribble all over a page and then look for a picture in it. Then once you erase the excess lines and add more to it, you get a scribbler picture.
This one is of a butterfly. It's kind of a creepy butterfly according to my one friend, but in my eyes it's kinda cute.
I also have other art forms besides scribblers, such as artistic journal pages, sketches, and drawings that include clothes design, robots, and other things as well.
This blog is for showing the art I've done and I may add new pictures when I make them.
So for anyone who likes art work and silliness, enjoy.
