Day 346 FebDoodle Camera

My CLmooc friends doodle everyday. Today I chose “camera” as a prompt from DoodleADay ElloLovey.

I was pretty stumped as to what to draw because I always want something unique, not the usual. But, everything I considered was too complex and too complicated for my drawing skills.

Then I remembered Brenda Bakker’s post on abstract art in Instagram. I could combine that with Jennifer Nichols new Selection Tool Animal Illustration to get the texture into the abstract through the selection tool.

Then I subtracted floral and leave outlines from those abstract shapes using the floral assets I created for my Warm Up idea.

Next I added a frame with the technique from  Brenda Bakker s 3D Papercut  Skillshare Class.

Finally, I added text with the strategies from Jennifer’s  Typography Class on Skillshare.

This was a fun way to play around and practice a few skills:

  • apply textural brushes using the select tool,
  • “selecting” outline shapes and “cutting” from a textured layer,
  • arranging the layers using different blend modes for different effects.

Go ahead try it. Here’s my practice video:
