Inverted colored/colour pencil drawing of a tuberous sundew (Drosera aff. pallida - a carnivorous plant from Australia). At the bottom is the drawing how it looks on paper and at the top is the inverted picture (negative colours in Photoshop). I just love this effect so I really had to do another one with this drawing technique. ;)
This drawing is dedicated to the 3 brave deviants who voted for more carnivorous plants drawings in my first poll and for all the other "Drosera people"! :D

Reference was a photo I've found and wanted to draw many years ago... I can't remember who took this photo, but hopefully I'll find out soon. I inverted the colours of the reference picture (= negative) in Photoshop before I started to draw.

I like what you did to place the stem out of focus.

I voted for plants Blinky's Wave of Happiness

Looks amazing and a great spin on doing it. I love how the highlights turned out on the mucus.

I know it is a long way off and some way behind Loki but I can't wait to see the one of Darwin with his plants.

I don't comply with the poll. I was just curious and wanted to know what the people would like to see. Maybe it will affect a few decisions about what to draw next, but I'll still draw what I want. ;)
But you are right that it will take some time until I'm going to draw Darwin with the plants, because at first I would like to draw the other plants on the list...

I voted for animals but it was close with carnivorous plants, I would have voted for both if I could but I would love to see you draw some animals :)
You are amazing at drawing water droplets :squee:

Ok. More carnivorous plants are no problem. I'm always looking for good picture and I know all the people so it's not problem to get them in a good resolution! :D Be aware that I'm possibly not going to draw animals like cats, dogs and horses (mammals). I like birds and jumping spiders. Especially peacock spiders are the cutest creatures on this earth (their dance is so cute!!!). la in love
Thank you very much! :grinwoo:
