Water-drops by LilaeaBluecoat Water-drops by LilaeaBluecoat
Nothing earth-shatteringly and shockingly fantastic. Just some water-drops on some leaves.
Can't seem to get a really good scan of it. The real thing looks a lot less 'messy'... :cry:

I worked from a reference image by ~sacral-stock :iconsacral-stock: .
It was nice to not have to strictly stay true to the reference (even though I couldn't help but still try to). Also wanted a little practice on blurry background and got that.

- A5 size Canson paper
- Mostly HB and 2B Derwent graphite pencils
- Kneaded eraser, pencil eraser and my trusty Tom-Bow eraser
- Blending stumps
- Cotton swab
- White gel pen (for the signature)

Hope you guys will like it.

I am amazed at the fantastical forms you get at micro level - the apposition of grass horizontal to the constellation of dew orbs is breathtaking.

Very good, the drops look perfect and wet. I like drawing water, it's an interesting thing when you do it right it just pops out.

Thank you! I appreciate it!
I know what you mean. There's almost an exact moment you can point out where you know the next stroke will make it work, or not.
