Recently, I got into digital art. It’s taking some time to get used to drawing on a slippery screen with a slippery pen and dealing with software glitches and whatnot. But I’m liking it. Especially the kaleidoscope feature where I draw one part and it repeats in all the others.

You might be wondering why I’m not calling this a mandala.

Mandala definition

  1. I’m not Hindu or Buddhist.
  2. My software calls it a kaleidoscope.
  3. I’m contrary. I hate following trends. >___>

Anyway…here’s my first kaleidoscope doodle. ^_____________^

I really didn’t intend to make this so morbid, but once I finished, it fit. Spring is dead on arrival and I’m so so so ready for summer. Enough of the snow and cold. I was done with winter around November 3. Let’s move on now.

I’ve mentioned this before but it’s worth repeating. The finish work you do on your doodles is what makes it art. It’s subtle sometimes. Other times it’s drastic. But it’s important. It gives your lines dimension and makes them more solid. Check out this before and after. Then try it.

Just doodling with puppy by my side. I’ve needed her this week. Who else can’t live without their pet?

Don’t try to figure it out. Just let it happen. 

I acquired me some Chameleon markers from a friend. At first, I didn’t understand how to use them. Like, how am I supposed know how much marker it will take to fill a shape? So I fiddled with them for a bit. And finally got the hang of ’em. It’s all in the wrist. ~__^
