Still dark but a new challenge

I’ve kept my drawing on the dark side lately and have decided to try some grayscale drawing as a new style and skill.

This flower took many hours of shading and line work for all the individual droplets (I think I went a bit overboard, but hey!) but I’m happy with the results, especially when compared to some of my previous droplet work. I think there’s definitely been some improvement.

I’m still finding the most enjoyment using Procreate and an Apple Pencil. I think it’s become my preferred way of drawing.

However, despite all of this positive news I’m finding myself in a bit of a creative rut, so I have no idea what I’ll be drawing next. If anyone has any ideas or suggestions then leave a reply here and I’ll take a look!

Hi! I'm Steph, an amateur writer and illustrator specialising in Mental Health and being a self-confessed Spoonie. My website is home to any successful fiction I create, with stories that have won so far covering difficult subjects such as baby loss and mental health in grief as well as some funny and heart-warming tales when I get the inspiration. Every drawing and picture on my website was created by me. I spend a lot of time coming up with illustrations to accompany all of my posts and pages. I try to create original content across all of my channels, whether I'm writing about my own fiction or just generally musing on mental health or my own issues. I want to be part of the change because I believe the understanding of MH in the UK is getting better, but has a very long way to go. By being honest about my own struggles and symptoms I think others will relate and hopefully it will encourage them to talk to someone and get the help and support they need. Long term my goal is to help children too, help them understand their own mental health and how to help with the mental health of those around them. I live in the UK with my partner, daughter and dog, I swear frequently and I adore a well made, traditional, gooey, chocolatey, delicious brownie.
