Fiery Rose in the Cold by MeaganEmerson Fiery Rose in the Cold by MeaganEmerson
This took forever to draw without a ruler. The scan sort of ruined the color and texture, but it's the best I can do.

There are three shades of blue in the background. I was really peeved at my inability to draw a perfectly straight line at first. Then I grew to like the effect because it made me think that something was fading away somewhere behind the red rose into the cold.

Pen on paper.

EDIT: I've re-scanned this picture. The previous was soooooo super crappy due to the picture being a page in a thick spiral notebook that my scanner hates vehemently.
Enjoy! :blowkiss:

very rich and sparse at the same time. I like the colour combination. Red and blue contrast well. Also the b'ground is sort of 'open' and the rose has a defined shape.
Straight-lines are a problem w/out ruler but more so if vertical than horizontal.Sometimes what I do is turn the work at right angles and then draw.

Thanks very much for the comment! :hug:
I do agree about the vertical lines, they're a pain unless you turn the work. This one has about three different shades of blue, so I'm proud not to have gotten completely messed up in the process.
