Hello hello, and welcome to my scribblings.

Feel free to come hang out a while.

hare
|HB pencil|

The European hare, Lepus europaeus, also known as the brown hare.

I sketched this before dinner, and had every intention of inking it in...but when I returned to it afterwards, I decided I liked it as is and didn't want to risk overworking it.



SPOILER!!: day 1 - hare

I'm so happy to be back again! Though a little later off the mark than I'd planned. After the crazy week I've had, it's been extra nice to just sit and sketch and chill :3

I looked at a ton of reference photos, and I loved the expression in the one I finally chose...and I think the pen would have been a bit harsh, and lost that softness of touch.


rook
|biro|coloured pencil|


The return of the squiggles of joy...on a much larger scale than last year. This year I'm working in a truly gorgeous Primarosa art notebook, and aiming for one picture per A5 page. I'm definitely rusty when it comes to working at this scale.

At the beginning of 2021, I decided I wanted to learn modern calligraphy as part of taking some mindfulness time. So far I've used it to letter greetings cards and envelopes, and a big contributing factor to why I opted to not do a single sheet for Seektober again this year was so that I could put my new skills into practice and try more complex layouts.

I couldn't resist this quote as my first.

I'm so glad to see your thread in here! I really love your style and enjoyed seeing your take on the different prompts last year. Such a nice realism to your hare and I love your scribbly mark-making along with the variations of color and value in the rook. I really like creative lettering too and your modern calligraphy is beautiful.

aaa I'm really glad you're doing a seektober thread this year too. that hare is amazing and I definitely know that feel when you get something to a point you like in pencil with every intention of going back in ink, and have to make a Decision™ and this hare does look great in its pencilly form

I really love how that rook turned out as well, the shine on it *-* it's incredible, and I do so love the squiggles

and that lettering I am drooling. super beautiful.

also SO glad to see the return of the squiggly art and that rook is amazing and I am just in awe at how lines come together.

Leaving the hare in pencil helps add a softness to that fluffy fur and cute little nose. I just wanna give it a SQUISH

Glad to see you back here again too

Aw, thank you for popping by and saying such lovely things! Everyone's responses to my scribbles last year have really helped me own it as a style

Usually it's a no brainer for me to ink it in and get rid of my smudgy pencil lines...but I also never usually do the initial sketch in such detail either. Had I been planning to do it like that from the outset, I might have bothered to go find my art pencils, rather than just grab the nearest HB from my pen pot!

And gosh Felix, those are such high compliments coming from you. I'm in awe O_O

How, you say? A lot of steady practice! It's been quite the learning curve, especially being a left-hander, which really doesn't mix well with ink pen.

I'm so happy to be back! I had such a good time last year, so when I saw it was back this year, I couldn't resist coming to re-join the fun!

Here I was inspired by Victorian botanical illustrations, crossed with my own looser style.

THE SQUIGGLES OF JOY ARE RETURNED. I'm so happy that you have a thread this year and that you brought back my dear squiggle friends. As always, your pieces are immaculate, so clean and well executed, as well as being really well done. I love the colors on the radish, and I would put that calligraphy in a frame on my wall.

They are indeed! :3 I think the graphite smudge along the side of my hand would have something to say about my pieces being immaculate, and I'm so touched you'd frame my lettering ;___;

You're too kind, Ariana. And I'm not sure I would have considered crisp as descriptor of my squiggles...but I think that comes from the difference between looking at it up close as I do whilst working, and standing further back like in the pictures.



nargles

"Mistletoe," said Luna dreamily, pointing at a large clump of white berries placed almost over Harry's head. He jumped out from under it. "Good thinking," said Luna very seriously. "It's often infested with nargles."

It's a 5mm dot grid watercolour paper (160gsm, if you're interested in such things) in a really pretty fabric-covered hardbound notebook. I treated myself to it especially for Seektober - its arrival is partially to blame for my late start - and I'm really enjoying working in it. The grid makes it super easy to check if things are straight, but doesn't interfere too much with the final work. And so far no bleed through!

omg pls that radish is so good, I'm mad about it. but not really. but kind of. but not. but. anyway, if I was vegetably inclined I would eat it. I really like how you give shape and depth to your art, and the shaaaading *-* as a sidenote, I looked at it and was like 'woah', and then thought it struck me as familiar, and only then did I read what inspired the style and that was exactly it. I could see it. and, you know, I would eat that mistletoe too, except I should not.

return of the lettering, not only a delight to look at but I agree the quote is very fitting, and I really love it ;;

I appreciate your kinds words so much, gosh. I'm so glad my inspiration came across even without the text; it was a piece I had a vision for, and came out just as I wanted - and was easily my quickest piece so far too. Things just aligned.

And yes, please don't eat the mistletoe. I need to see more of your beautiful art please and thank you.



autumn
|biro|coloured pencil|


Autumn days when the grass is jewelled
And the silk inside a chestnut shell.
Jetplanes meeting in the air to be refuelled.
All these thing I love so well

So I mustn't forget
No, I mustn't forget
To say a great big
Thank You
I mustn't forget

Clouds that look like familiar faces
And the winters moon with frosted rings
Smell of bacon as I fasten up my laces
And the song the milkman sings

So I mustn't forget
No, I mustn't forget.
To say a great big
Thank You
I mustn't forget

Whipped-up spray that is rainbow-scattered
And a swallow curving in the sky
Shoes so comfy though they're worn out and they're battered
And the taste of apple pie

So I mustn't forget
No, I mustn't forget
To say a great big thank you
I mustn't forget

Scent of gardens when the rain's been falling
And a minnow darting down a stream
Picked-up engine that's been stuttering and stalling
And a win for my home team

So I mustn't forget
No, I mustn't forget
To say a great big thank you
I mustn't forget


~ Autumn Days, lyrics by Corey & Vicki Stout


No, I don't have any clue what jet planes refueling have to do with autumn either, but it's one of the few songs I can still remember from assembly at primary school at this time of year. I always loved the description of the inside of the conker shell, and getting to shout "A WIN FOR MY HOME TEAM" at the end.




SPOILER!!: day 7 - autumn

1. DOT GRID WATERCOLOR PAPER. I'm obsessed with this idea. It sounds perfect.

2. I know I said I would hang the last quote on the wall but I would really really hang this one. I love Terry Pratchett, and the quote is so fitting. Perfect.

3. The shine of the light on your lil nut is so lovely.

Once again, I have fallen behind !!!

The mistletoe berries (what are these things called, I have no idea … clearly) are so beautiful! I’m a big fan of the color green you’ve chosen here. And then once again I am in awe of this lettering. I have watched more handlettering youtube videos than I can count on my fingers and I could literally never. You’re an icon for this one. A sooooooong. I always love how you introduce each of your pieces, I look forward to it each and every time. And this shell is so beautifully detailed. I’m once again shook.

Thank you for stopping by and saying such nice things

I so appreciate reading how people view my artwork - at school I was always encouraged towards photorealism, and my biro work was basically shunned as too rough. Through last year's Seektober and this, I now see it differently and that it has a realism too :3

1. I lied. I've now had bleed through...though possibly more to do with me trying to experiment with using pens as watercolours. Still in love with the dot grid though.

2. The thought of two pieces of my art on your wall...gosh, wow. First, how is there space between all your lovely watercolours? And second...well... *faints*

3. We call those nuts conkers at home, and they're SO shiny. I think buckeyes are similar here, though I can't say I've seen one.

And then once again I am in awe of this lettering. I have watched more handlettering youtube videos than I can count on my fingers and I could literally never. You’re an icon for this one. A sooooooong. I always love how you introduce each of your pieces, I look forward to it each and every time. And this shell is so beautifully detailed. I’m once again shook.
I so very nearly missed your comment, sneakily squeezing it in right as I was about to post. I do indeed believe they are called berries, and finding that shade of green between the three green pencils I had was tricky indeed. The song is absolute belter (at least, it is when you're eight years old and required to sing hymns on a daily basis), and I've now had it stuck in my head for three days. No I mustn't forget...


you're just as sane as I am

My first dabble at using the Tombow Dual brush pens as watercolours, which didn't entirely go to plan, but I think turned out for the better.



SPOILER!!: day 8 - you're just as sane as I am

The blend is so PRETTY with those pens. I know how the ink can be tricky with things like that (I've had bleed too), but I love how they look as watercolory substitutes.

As for hanging stuff on my wall, I haven't actually hung any of my watercolors. I intend to at some point, but I'm not there yet. PLENTY of room for your pretty calligraphy.

AND I KNOW BUCKEYES!
