This one makes me smile. I can't exactly say why, maybe the half circles look like grins. I can't give you a good reason for it.
This doodle has a decidedly vertical orientation and your eye moves up and down through it. Mostly it doesn't matter which way I orient a doodle, they work fairly well from any direction. This one very definitly goes this way. Who am I to argue with it?
I have ancient and balky tech, which makes messing around with anything a pain in the rear. I keep hoping to replace it, but it keeps getting pushed back. Its been too long to catch up, so I am just going to start fresh.
What I like about this doodle is the the weight of the white space hanging just below the center line. It pulls youe eye right in, but the other curved elements pull your eye around the rest of the doodle.
It's Spring. I am jumping the gun on it, but there were trilliums blooming in Forest Park yesterday. Trilliums equal spring around here. This doodle is springlike, flowers and leaves bursting out all over.
Two doodles this time because I got busy. No chit chat because I am completely braindead from beating my brains out dealing with this elderly computer. So enjoy them for what they are with no commentary from me.
Long ago, there were 10 suns. Each day, the sky goddess would choose one to drive across the sky in her chariot. The other nine suns would play all day. One day, all the suns decided to go up together and the heat of all of them together was so strong that it caused a terrible drought. A great archer was given 10 magical arrows to shoot them out of the sky. According to the story, the only reason that we don't live in perpetual darkness, is that someone stole one of the arrows.
Usually, I call these medallions stars, but its February. I live in Oregon. I need some proof that someone really did steal one of those arrows and the sun is still up there.
There is something about this doodle that reminds me of clockworks. I did a brief google search for clockworks, and, in the links I clicked anyway, most of them were by religious men, pastors and proselytizers. I thought about why this could be and can only come up with this question: Is the link between clocks and religion an orderly universe?
Anyway, I like this doodle because of a couple of oddments. There are several rectangular elements scattered around. In the upper right corner, those chicken scratches are measurements for something, but I don't remember what it is, and there is a mistake. A big fat mistake. I don't make them often, even though I do work in ink. I could have photoshopped it out, but where's the fun in that?
(this image is from headlikeclockwork . I liked the story and wonder where the writer is from.)
Disappearing circles! Everything squeezing in towards the midline in this doodle, interlocking and compressing. I think the composition is slightly off, but I do not sketch these things out in advance, so its to be expected. I like the medallions and its been quite awhile since I have made any half circles.
Its freezing here, I had a slippery run this morning. Half circles on a weather map mean warm fronts. Maybe I am dreaming...
