I added this image earlier on the blog as a rough sketch. Now, I'm experimenting with coloring in a new program. I really like the flames of the middle dragonbird the best, so I need to thin the lines on the other two. This coloring process was so much faster than my old techniques!
If there's a pencil and any available clean surface when I'm on the phone, I am probably doodling. This image is a prime example. Someone told me that recent research showed this was not a sign of inattention, but a way that brains multitask to help them stay focused (?) Whatever. I didn't need justification for my free-style art outbursts, but it's nice to know someone out there is thinking of doodlers as they conduct their scientific experiments.
