In the Abstract by Cataclysm-X In the Abstract by Cataclysm-X
Very, VERY different from my usual work, but like I said at Twitter, today I scanned this new drawing of mine. A little something for you!

Yesterday I needed something to relax, and drew one of those sketches I usually draw a lot, but never show! I like to draw colouring templates for kids, I gave away and donated quite a few of them when I still went to school, and I still like to give them to kids at hospitals.

This one, however, I made for you guys and gals. :blowkiss:

You've all been so sweet and supportive. Where would I be without you. :happycry: *sob*

I've drawn some hidden objects in this drawing (all drawn with an HB mechanical pencil by the way!). I wonder if you can recognize them!

I'm colouring this one myself, but if in case you would like to colour it too, you can download the template by hitting the "download" button. (:

(If you're gonna use it, feel free to post it on deviantART too. You can leave a link to your coloured version right here, so I can feature them thumbnails in a pretty news article. Yay! Spread the news article love all around :peace:)

Anyways, hope you enjoy. And PS: next week I'll post a video tutorial online about drawing eyes! Stay tuned :eager:

I must say; you have an awful lot of time on your hands :P
Cataclysm-X Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2010  Professional Traditional Artist
You don't know what you're saying bro... :shrug:
bradels23 Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2010  Professional Traditional Artist
drawings that take over 24 hours, animations, constant deviations being submitted. Theres no way I'd have the time to do that! You dont have a job or anything?
and-amore Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2010  Hobbyist Writer
Other people spend their time watching TV, or reading, or hanging out and getting drunk, or doing nothing. If she uses that time to do those masterpieces, good for her! I'm sorry if I sounded rude, but you said it as if you were reproaching her for that :(
Windestaenzerin Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I love this. I looked at it to find some of those hidden objects you mentioned and apart from butterflies and flowers, I found shapes that I could interpret in many different ways! A fish, no, a duck, or is it a big dragon? Awesome :heart:
I love how you've hidden your signature :D
Aracely Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2010
I really like it. It reminds me of stain glass designs.
ryoko25 Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2010  Student Writer
I might just print this out and color it. Would be fun.
Ticika Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Oooh that would be such a pretty glass window design.
YExoticCreature Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2010   Traditional Artist
Looks great :D It looks like something you would find in a coloring book :)
Viscountesshope Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2010
Absolutely wonderful even if it is vastly different than your usual fare. It would be interesting in color.
TBascom Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2010
that is really nice.
Heidipickels Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Very nice, real different for your usual work I've seen. I do a lot of abstract drawings kinda similar to these. They are my relaxation pills at the end of the day. If your interested I have quite a few posted in my gallery. Lots of hidden pictures as well, only mine are not very obvious.

This is absolutely breathtaking.
Suanin Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Is er iets dat je niet kunt tekenen? :O_o: Ongelooflijk.
Dit moet trouwens wel echt leuk zijn om te kleuren! Alleen jammer dat ik niet met kleurpotloden om kan gaan, haha. :lol:
En ik heb de eekhoorn gespot! :w00t: De andere hidden objects zijn nog hidden, maar ik zal ze vinden! :P

That's very sweet of you.:heart: and a lovely idea to give to kids at hospitals.:glomp:
Svera Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2010
It looks beautiful :) I bet it looks a lot like art nouveau when it is coloured.
HinamoriMomo98 Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2010
This is such a beautiful piece done by such a talented person! I love it very much :heart:
Loaznkicker4444 Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2010  Student Traditional Artist

rebelforge Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2010
That's really slick, should get it done in stained glass.
Elestra Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2010
The squirrel, a swan, lots of flowers, a butterfly and abstract wings.
eychanchan Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Holy crap this is awesome.

... *Tries to find the subliminal message*
cuteswan Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2010
Of course the flowers and leaves are givens, then I see the squirrel and butterflies. But after that super pareidolia kicks in and I see a masked face, a duck pecking his neck, octopus arms (versus tentacles), the Devil's tail, hearts, the rooster from the old Corn Flakes box (well, actually a cuter rooster face), brass knuckles, a loop of 35mm movie film, letters, a bee, hands with various gestures (but nothing rude), a chrysalis, your signature, a dove or pigeon, a mecha peacock, 3-D glasses, an old-fashioned car headlight (the rounded kind that gets mounted completely on the outside of the hood), even a turkey (of course *I* would see lots of birds), Pacman opening extra-wide to swallow the sun, peas dropping out of a pod all at once...

You get the idea(s). :D
5t4r5y Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2010
Ok lets seeeee...except the birds, flowers, butterflies I saw your signature (not sure yet)..I found a mask, I saw two (as number), a squirrel, an S, a snake (?) + something ...some animal with head upside down? Can't decide what it is exactly xD
Gooood :D I can watch it the whole night xD

Can't wait for the tutorial!

And btw pleeeeease reveal the truth later :D

I see a birdie! :)
xStelmariax Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I see a bird, lots of flowers (is that a rose?) and hearts, a butterfly, a trumpet?!, and after staring five minutes to the image i have found the bee :D
BraveBabysitter Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
prrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrretty, beautiful drawing, so very lovely :D
Cataclysm-X Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2010  Professional Traditional Artist
did anyone find the bee by the way? It's there, but it's super tiny!
tanabatablossom Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Wow, that looks lovely and like a lot of work. I think a collage of different colored version is a really nice idea. As for seeing hidden objects, so far I think I've found a parrot, a tulip and a flamingo :giggle:
Cataclysm-X Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2010  Professional Traditional Artist
there's a flamingo?? :lol: where :noes: I can't find it xD

I think, so far, you're the only one who noticed the tulip.

I wonder what kind of coloured versions I'll get from people... :giggle:
