I was looking through a book of Mehndi designs a few days ago and then was struck by an idea for a drawing inspired by them. So here’s a look at a drawing I did this week.

It’s not exactly as it looked in my mind (it never is) but I quite like the end result.

 

The very start of the base sketch.

My completed base sketch.

After the sketch was done, I went back over it in various sized black ink tips and erased all the excess pencil marks.

Then I began to add color.

Finished adding in color.

Began work on shading, adding small details, and fixing things I had missed.

The completed drawing.
