(Actually these were all sketched over the last week.) I don't have a sketchbook, usually I draw on whatever lined/grid paper I have when I should be taking notes in lecture. And I found these amazing erasable pens and markers by Pilot, so I get the feeling of drawing with ink (which I love) and I can still neaten them up a bit. And the markers are amazing!! ERASABLE RAINBOW MARKERS WOW
Random page with random ideas (medallions? hanging flowers?)
Lantern-inspired designs. Can you tell I really, really love Chinese New Year?
(And my name seals!)
So I have time in a week to draw this many things, but only time to make...one. OTLEDIT:
Thank you so much for the DD!!
Huge thanks to
for the feature, and to everyone else for the comments and favs
. I will try to reply comments soon, but for now just some quick answers to the questions several people asked:
1. They are not meant to be grief seeds, though after googling that I can certainly see the resemblance
2. Erasable pen is Pilot Frixon, markers are Pilot Frixon Colours. I bought both locally but you can find them on Amazon.com as well.
3. Permissions for drawing/jewelry based on these designs: YES, but please don't sell them, and please link to this deviation in the comments. And if you send me the link to your work I'll +fav it
4. Where I get inspiration from (specific to this set of designs):
-Animals/Flowers like Jellyfish and Fuschia.
-Hanging things like Chinese lanterns/knots/tassels/charms.
-Props/costumes from Cantonese and Teochew opera that my parents watch.
-And of course, from other awesome jewelry artists like
5. Yes, that is Owl City
