ink blobs + compressed air = fun!

Did some more "ink splat" drawings tonight. Oh how I love air in a can! -grin-

These are made by putting a good-sized blob of ink on a piece of paper, and then spraying it with a compressed air can (supposed to be used for cleaning keyboards, etc. this is much more fun) Sometimes I even got a coating of frost on the paper, cuz the can gets cold and shoots out white icy frosty stuff. Weird. After the ink is sprayed around, and I like the shape, I add to it with felt marker and make a pretty picture. Well, I hope they're pretty. To me they are. *shrugs shoulders*

not sure what this is, or where it came from. I started off drawing a bird, then a bat, then back to a bird with it's head being blown off. Like I said, not sure where that came from.

This is random lines/circles, stemming off from a hand-like shape in the centre. I like this one, will probably color it.

This one looked like a jellyfish to me. So here are some jellyfish. I knew those Vancouver Aquarium pics would come in handy someday. :) This one will definitely be colored and prettyed up.

cool, very cool. I'm glad you said the bird was getting its head blown off so I wouldn't have to ask what was going on there. It does look like its been shot. :( The second one almost looks like it could be in an enchanted forest. The splat in the middle being a wise old bug of course. The leaves (as I will call them now) look beautiful. And I hate to say it but the first thing I thought of when I saw the last one was flying underwear. But yes jellyfish does sound better. :P

-allison now want to draw stuff
