Little serpent by Mystalia Little serpent by Mystalia
Doodle I made on a napkin at work during a slow day. The ballpoint pen I used was old and horrible because it randomly let out blotches of ink.

Gorgeous pen work <3 I love the details and sense of weight to the coils.

Wow, I just bought a game mat that was ink on cloth, so the overall look of this makes me think of that, but I wish this was on the mat somewhere!

Boredom and mindless doodling is one of the greatest ways to get really awesome art:)

Despite the horrible, old ballpoint, the weight of the coils on this doodle is unmistakable.  Bravo!

This proves again how sometimes the best creations come out of boredom! Looks pretty cool, like the sea serpents on medieval maps...

I think there's a curse many people have; when they don't have time to work on projects or are not in a position to put it down on paper, but they're bored, they have loads of ideas. But then when they have free time and are ready to get creative, all those ideas and motivation have suddenly disappeared!

Despite being "just" a napkin doodle, this is one of my favourite pieces in your gallery.... and you have a lot of impressive work.

Aw, thank you. Sadly, I think I might have misplaced the napkin itself, so I only have this upload to remember it by. I can't for the life of me remember where I put the original doodle and if I even still have it. :/

Fantastic work! I'm always afraid to use ballpoint pens because they sometimes blotch, but I think it works out for the serpent. The line work you've done is beautiful as well as the motion of the serpent.

Beautiful serpent, i love his scales. Maybe it is on a napkin but you can see the effort you put into this :D

it's a bit sad that napkins have so many wrinkles that it's impossible to scan without seeing any, haha. Thanks though!

Perhaps, it does look quite grumpy. But I can't guarantee it won't bite.

Aw nah, a little thing like this definitely shouldn't be framed or receive anywhere near that type of attention X) But I'll keep it and put it in my sketchbook along with the other dragons.

blotchy pens are the wooooorst ;-;
