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! =^.^=

|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

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. =^.^=

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! =^.^=
