|First attempt at spores.|
|This one is closest to what I envisioned.!|
I finally settled on a rounded, poppy-like thingy opening. The best page in my book showing this is here:I also decided that when the swelling burst, the 'spores' should shoot out and away, like the seeds in a Bird of Paradise plant. But, how could I show that in a static picture? Finally, I decided to try to use something I used to see in comic books, some trailing lines that get smaller as you move away from the thing in motion. That meant it would look something like:
Well, tonight I started playing around with this idea. I have several examples. One nice thing about this is it can be used to fill a fairly large space. The Mooka at the bottom or side, and the spores shooting everywhere to fill the area!
|Notice one of the swellings has "rupture lines" where it will split.|
I am now satisfied with the concept. Now, I need to play with it in zentangles to see how it works for real. Until next time, enjoy.
