Woohoo! Managed to squeeze in a couple of hours of doodling again this week so that means that I have page 2 from my Doodle Journal ready to share.
Ok, this one started out by using two stencils to trace out a pair of stags against an animal fur pattern.
The pen of choice for the outlines this time was a Staedtler Tiplus Fineliner. Nice hard tip, smooth flow of colour. Perfect for edges.
Sticking with that pen I begin to fill with pattern.
The stags got a circular microbe type pattern and the fur patches, is it Zebra?, got a straight line effect. Gives them distinction from each other I think.
To add some detail to the background I selected a light grey Staedtler Triplus Fineliner and popped in some dots and crosses.
Back to the old Zig Clean Color Real Brush grey pen for some shading – which ended up being way more than I had first thought.
Hmmm, almost there. Just needs something a little more …
*rummages through pencil case for gold gel pen*
Bingo! Looks like the stags are made of gold coins or sequins or something, lol!
Bit more shading – around the stags this time. Zig pen again here.
Also brought out a black zig brush pen and outlined the stags and added some extra detail to their antlers.
Used an old dried out marker to add a distressed looked border to the outer edge too – and I think that we are done…!
Yup. Like it.
Almost looks at first glance like I drew this on a book page!
Right! Page 2 done! Woohoo!
Do you like it? Something cool to have a go at isn’t it? I’m really enjoying this – less trepidation about using the journal now and excited to see what I shall do next.
Thanks for stopping by. Will catch you again soon.
