Word of the Day – Flumadiddle – it means utter nonsense… so does the word Flapdoodle. I will let you decide what these imaginary animals are!
It all started with an “eye”! Using Carla Sonheim’s exercise #8 in her book, “Drawing and Painting Imaginary Animals” – I came up with these creatures:
I started by drawing with a ball point pen:
Keeping my hand loose, these creatures were born! Next, I added color with Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils:
And to finish it, I made-up some names for them:
I think this would be a fun activity to do with children. They have such wonderful imaginations!
Happy Creating! 🙂
P.S. I have decided to work on some new ideas for my art so I won’t be posting on my blog every day. I look forward to seeing what you are creating too! xo
