watercolor + silhouettes

I did a little watercolor sketch at The Huntington a couple days ago. I should have noted the name of this plant: spiraling spikes bud into leaves and the top flowers. Right outta the Forest of Corruption.

And just now I thought I’d try my hand at developing character silhouettes, a la Kendra Melton. She did 100; for me 5 was a challenge, and already my designs are a little repetitive. The silhouette really helps show which elements are helpful, original, or just getting in the way. I’ll do 100 sometime, maybe with some reference for inspiration.

The laziest drawing is my favorite, the fourth one.
