Midnight Doodles

There are some nights where my brain is tired but I still have a load of creative energy. What to draw? What to draw?

I drew the thing at hand - a pair of fingernail clippers. This is a top-down view, drawn with a ballpoint pen.


I'm trying to make the ballpoint pen drawings look like a photograph. I've seen it done. I have a long way to go.

I was frustrated with the way the clippers came out but I still had the need to draw. I didn't want to draw a 'thing' and try to make it look like the thing it was so I just doodled. Lots and lots of doodling.



I like the bits on the left that look like soapsuds on mushrooms. I thought that came out neat looking so I added a clip of it as the blog header today.

Your doodles are nice and so is the zentangle. I've done a few of the zens when tired too. Your clippers came out really good too. I am trying out the ball point pen drawing for myself. It's harder than I expected.

I need to learn how to do a banner I guess. Everyone has neat ones and some like you will change theirs around. I have never done anything to mine.
