I had an idea to do a field of glowing flowers and thought the lighting challenge would be fun! I know stars aren’t black, but they’re my favorite part of it. Done in charcoal. I needed to learn more about how to handle charcoal because it can be so difficult to work with but it yields such awesome textures and finishes. I had to use the eraser to do half the drawing which was different for me. I learned a lot! I feel like I dulled the flowers a bit by giving them an outline instead of just using white.
this idea just kind of came to me. I started drawing it just as a doodle and it turned into this. Got lost in it and had a ball creating the scene and character! I would love to hear your thoughts about what you think is happening in the scene.
