Daily Doodle

ACEO Gnome Gardener is inspired by one friend's doing an amazing Gnome Box on eBay, in pyrography colored with either paint or colored pencils very smoothly, very fairytale look, and another friend liking gnomes. So I thought I'd do one of the daily doodles on a gnome and try for a vintage look with beige Canson paper and a brown pen. I think I managed to get the scale right on it this time to give the impression that's a very small gnome gardening in one of the odd spots near a brick shed or corner.

I may try this brown ink on beige monochrome thing again with some other subjects, it could look very cool for a raptor...

Current count on the book, 3,293 and growing. But today was a lazyish day with low count (but some) and a doodle drawing. I may do something different tomorrow, or lots of doodles. June is Doodle Month over at eBay and a friend of mine is doing a daily doodle, so I thought I'd jump in and see if I can get back in the habit of daily drawing!

Very adorable
I love the little Nome. You might want to try getting some shading or adding color to the picture. It would give it a more complete look. Check out Pryrography (www.craftyartworld.com/pyrography.php) for some info.

Anyway, I really like this overall. The detail is fantastic. Adding in a little shading would make it perfect (in my opinion). I hope that you post more soon.

Re: Very adorable
Oh yeah! When I do one again I will definitely be thinking about Pyrography, I love the way that looks -- and yeah, if I dragged a wet brush across the lines to soften them I might get some shading in. This one has a bid though, so I'm not going to alter it after someone made a commitment to buy it.

Next time though, I think it might rock to do some light monochrome shading or color it. I hadn't thought of using brown lines and still coloring it, but that could work really well!
