Dripping Into The Bowl by Redcockatiel Dripping Into The Bowl by Redcockatiel
Drawing done with sharpie markers. I was in a mood to do something a little different and colorful.

POSITIVELY fascinating.  I can hardly believe this was sharpies.  The colors are incredibly vivid and I like all the different shape elements you have in the piece.  We have the clear-cut vertical lines and then the more spontaneous but still organized layers of drops.  Colors are contrasted very well, with blues often going next to pinks in the same column, and so forth.  Through all this chaos of colors, contrasts, and shapes, though, I can also clearly vividly see the eye and face you drew.  Altogether this is a very fascinating piece and incredibly artfully done.  I cannot conceptualize like that.  Whatever mood you were in, I love what it accomplished!

Thank you so much! Surprisingly sharpies give pretty consistant vibrant colors. Normally I just play around with them and do odd things with them such as anthro and little cartoons. I was in a pretty good mood I was housesitting and couldn't bring a lot of my art supplies. Being that I had cable internet and air conditioning privilages which I don't have at home I was in heaven. I really didn't have much idea beforehand how it would turn out. I just started with the eye and kinda went with it from there.

I have played some with sharpies and have enjoyed them a bit, but I've never explored them that much.  You might be inspiring me to pull out my old set... hopefully some of them still have juice...

Definitely give them a try. I have had mine a while and decided to give them a shot. I really didn't try to think too hard on what I was going to do. I just thought about it briefly kinda did a few things to relax and then started. Being most of my art doesn't involve lots of cheerful bright colors it helped a lot.

I can't say I'm one who usually works for bright colors, either, but it would be interesting to expand out there and see what I can do with a naturally bright medium.

I didn't think I would do very well with them at first. But I kinda just went with it and let it flow. Though it will probably just still play a lesser role in my overall art. I don't stick to just the same style as doing the same thing over and over can become stagnant and depressing. One day I might feel like drawing animals another surrealism or fantasy or anthro or whatever comes to mind. trying new things with one area may also help with another

two diffent drawings but same concepts used on both. Miseration is the older piece.
