I drew some things! Quality varies, but I really like the butterfly, and the mushroom.
I had decided from my mind map that I wanted a jittery older mushroom man drinking tea, so I started playing with mushroom shapes. I was surprised to find that the scribbliest one was the one I ended up choosing, because it had a nice attitude to it!
I tried a few very different things here, mostly because I struggled a bit with this step. Thankfully I found some bits that worked for me.
Playing with colour! I was surprised (although in retrospect it should have been obvious) that the earthy browns and jades of the beetle worked best.
The final piece! I am quite happy with how this turned out, it’s been a wonderful journey :)
