Thoughts On This Illustration
This Illustration was drawn during my time as a first-year student at AuArts. I remember it like it was yesterday, and the major procrastination that came with it. This year was the first year of drawing plants for the first time, and was a major hurdle that was needed to overcome.
A quill pen was used for this project, and decided to try cross hatching for the first time. An example of experimentation is the hatching becoming more condensed the farther the eye went. The close-up detailing on the leaves were fun but I felt that I had to get it right since it was an area of focus.
