The Inside Of My Head–No.8

I do enjoy a good doodle and I thought I’d show you my latest effort. My doodles can take weeks or even months to complete and they are typically done in the notebook I use for work.

Here’s a picture of the notebook with the original full page doodle.


And here’s a scan of the page before any additional processing.


What I like to do is to use some basic image processing to add a splash of colour. Nothing too fancy - they are only doodles after all - but adding some layers to the image using an appropriate blend mode can have quite an effect.

Here I have added a series of layers using a burn blend mode with a different colour in each layer. By changing the amount of blend mode the subtlety of the effect can be varied.


There’s plenty more where that came from!
