Hi, this is a continuation from my last post, and it's done!!

This drawing is all done by dots of markerpens.
Best of all, I could empy my worries and focus on hitting those dots. If you are interested, please visit my first post and the second post.
I recognized it's similar to coloring book that you will be following the given path.

So it's really good for me to do this in between other of my art creation, which I constantly thinking; am I doing it okay?, is this looking cool?, is that color suits with this? etc.

All right. So with this technique, I am using colors, so thought of color combination and proportion accuracy.

The second image.
I carried out with its legs and now to the background. There were orange color around the beetle, so I put some warm color in the background to blend in.

Something blurry and warm, to give depth.

The third image
Lastly, I almost forgot about the wood plank. In the original photo, it was entirely a white wall, and here I changed to have depth, so I....errr.. cogh cogh.... I improvised the wooden texture!

I added some shadows at the bottom so it looks standing up right.

Thank you for reading, the artworks in this post is done by me, @naomipangolin.

Well..well @naomipangolin... if I happened seen this painting from far away, I think I'd come closer and try to touch it to make sure it's not the real bug😊 awesome job!

Thank you @cicisaja😍, glad it's almist here, I also wish to touch it once more. Happy memory finding this beautiful beetle😄

·

Thank you @taffel! I think that beetle is the beauty.

So much work went into this one. It's so detailed that it doesn't even look like it consisted of dots :)

·

Thank you, so encouraging❤️
I guess, to make it look natural, random shooting and hitting helps😂

It's kind of.... opposite to pencil and pen drawings. Its shapeless cloud and delicate in the beginning without effort. I put lots of effort to make it look tough and firm because this requires more density of dots... How strange it sounds but you will see when you try! Thanks again! 😄

Thanks for sharing! 😃

Thank you @trincowski, my love to bugs are showing! 😁

Very nice !!! It already looked really cool at the work in progress post, but this finished version looks super wonderful <3 You are super talented with this pointillism style, @naomipangolin !!!

·

Thank you so much @veryspider ❤️❤️❤️, unfortunately my husband told me to take rest from art making for this year😅 will be checking my old albums for the upcoming year!!

I think your work needs lots of concentration @naomipangolin. Apologies for all my questions, but it's intriguing to me. Do you have breaks when working ? Do you leave your work for a day and come back to it ?

·

Thank you @cryptocariad! Yes, of course! I cook for my family, do laundry, etc. I do the art making in between house chores. So this is about 1 and a half week job. If I could do it continuously 8 hours per day, I could done it faster but I am sure I will get back and butt aches😂
