daily doodles

Daily Doodles are almost certainly created under the following restrictions:

1. Lunchtime (i.e. <1hr)

2. Based upon a provided topic (you may suggest one)

2. Based upon a topic that appeared in my head

3. MUST DO ONE EVERY DAY

4. Rules are for wimps

GO

Avast!

Trying to do a doodle a day. Last night’s, based upon a small person with a penchant for pirates and princesses turned out pretty fun, so I thought I’d have a play with this digital colouring malarkey.

Original with Waterman fountain pen and Noodler’s Bulletproof Black.

 

Two versions, digitally coloured and with paper backgrounds I scrounged from the intertubes.

I used a new plugin for creating the ink overlay for colouring under which is pretty handy, I mean you can desaturate, set to multiply and adjust the opacity – or just apply this filter – it’s free and you can get it here

The final inked version (with drawing inks).  Delivered with laserjet copies of the line drawing for personalised colouring in funs. The exciting string on the packaging was a BIG HIT.
