My life as a cat: second garden drawing by ballpoint pen


Immediately after I completed “at dusk”, the first garden drawing by a ballpoint pen, I started working on this new one. I expected that I could complete this one sooner, but it actually took me 24 days to draw everything I felt I needed to include in this work. I hope many people visiting this forum like this piece. :blush: :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: :tumbler_glass: :cat:

Hello, TheMustardSeedLife, thank you so much for your kind words. Well, I have recently discovered that ballpoint pens can deal with almost any subjects for drawing. When I was a kid, I enjoyed reading tons of cartoons and even tried to make my own cartoons using pretty authentic pens and ink. I remember that they were dip pens, which in those days were considered standard gadgets for cartoonists. But now that I tried drawing many subjects using a ballpoint pen, I find it much more handy and so far I haven’t faced any difficulties in depicting what I want to express in my drawings. I don’t know, I will just keep exploring. :laughing: :+1: :cat:

Hello Patricia, thank you so much for your comment. I’ve been doing a lot of research jobs before actually working on my drawings and I’m beginning to understand the composition is the key to successful garden drawings. I realised this while checking tons of garden photographs. For the first garden drawing, I selected a pretty simple composition. For the second, I chose a bit more complicated one. I am going to follow this composition-based policy when choosing what to draw for a while. I hope I can keep supplying something interesting to see for the coming months. :cat: :cat: :cat:

How do you make a video like this. It looks like you take a bunch of stills as you go, then merge them into a video using some specific software? Watching this is almost more amazing than viewing the final piece

@lakeside339, yes, there are video editing softwares that you can use to create videos. From the simple Windows Video Editor to PowerDirector(a program that youtubers use), there’s quite a range. And for the record, Windows Video Editor is for VERY simple videos. :grin: Jesus loves you!!!
