Doodle... crossing points

"Crossing Points"
Floral ink doodle design
Meow there, Monday!   Some crisscrossings for today's flowery doodle/drawing.  A variation on my "Sun's Caress", clickie-click (here)... Not quite done with the loops and swirls of my previously posted doodle!  I love making my doodles/drawings all loopy, curly and swirly!  =^.^=

Portrait... masato ochiai (world order)

Masato Ochiai (World Order)
Done in Staedtler Mars Lumograph 8B with Derwent Watercolor Pencils

Meow there, Monday!  Finished a new portrait!  Been some months since the last one.  This one's of Masato Ochiai of the Japanese music/dance group, World Order.  Just discovered them very recently when a friend posted their Tissot ad video on facebook.  When I saw the video, I was amazed and wow-ed!  I love discovering new music!  I think World Order is now my fave music group of the moment!  =^.^=

Started with a pencil sketch, lightly shaded.  I've gotten bored with doing just plain graphite portraits, so I lightly colored it with a few shades of blue watercolor pencils (Derwent) and went over them with a wet brush.  Then I started working on shading details with Staedtler Mars Lumograph 8B.  I only used 8B and used my fingers to smudge in the strokes.  When I gave the blue watercolor pencil strokes a wet wash, it kind of looked a bit like Avatar (LOL!!!), so I gave it a touch of violet.  I also like to give the graphite strokes a wet wash to "settle down" the graphite and give it "depth".

Now, for some World Order music to accompany my portrait of Masato Ochiai..,  I love their music and their music videos!  

This was my first taste of World Order music and dance!

One of my faves... Last Dance

"Have a Nice Day"

"Machine Civilization"

Doodle... sakura swirl

"Sakura Swirl"
A5 ink floral doodle/drawing

Meow there, Monday!  I had so much fun doing my very loopy and swirly "La-La-Loopy-Loops" flower doodle, clickie click (here), I made another version of it!   The stamens made the flowers look a touch more feminine and frilly.  Kinda like Sakura blossoms.  Made this one a bit cosier and a little leafy.  Really enjoyed drawing all the loops and swirls.   Might just make another version again.   =^.^=

Doodle... la-la-loopy-loops

Ink flower doodle...

Meow there, Monday!  Fun, fun, fun with this loopy-loopsy-loop floral doodle!  And because it wasn't loopy enough, I made it swirly and curly as well!  =^.^=

Having some tea with my kitteh mug.
Every time I take a sip, it looks like I'm sniffing the kitteh's butt!  LOL!!!
