Diva's Weekly Challenge #243



According to my terrible reading ability, I think Laura has given us a challenge with space: it’s to intentionally leave the majority of your tile empty.

This is a prefect challenge for my situation right now. I sold my apartment and have had to pack all my stuff, send it all somewhere, and then leave Taipei in one week — I don’t have enough time to draw a complicate tile, haha!


The first one is a huge Purk…… However it’s maybe too big and without too much empty space left.


The second one was with two Featherfall. I drew only one feather first, but felt something was missing. I added one more feather to give the tile a little bit more weight. I am not a fan of organic pattern (sorry I don’t know how to say the kinds of pattern like Mooka, Finery, Featherfall or Henna Drum in English, but they are not geometrical patterns. If anyone could tell me, I would really appreciate it.) But drawing this pattern with Sakura-Brush is very beautiful.

My favorite tile is the (top) Renaissance tile! I learned the pattern "Heartfully" today actually. I just love it, do you?

Thank you for visiting! I have to continue to pack more things. Next week I will be in Toronto, my summer is finally over and winter is coming.


這星期就像戰場,十年的東西要在一夕之間打包真的很大挑戰,還好這些年水裡來火裡去,搬家的經驗讓我練就一副好身手,機票延長9天,但清空出乎意料的快,現在反而剩下幾日悠哉,還得以補上一堂茶磚課。

兵荒馬亂之時,指定線板和圖樣的那項挑戰已經停機數週,但還是想保持最起碼的女神挑戰。

本週女神挑戰非常體貼我的沒有時間是小確幸:簡單的圖樣,大量的留白。雖說畫面留白是個很高深的學問,但畫起來倒是頗輕鬆,至少不用花很多時間塗黑還是眼花的畫些細微而重複的元素。我本來是想拿上次的單板圖樣黑圓磚搪塞一下就好,但那顆詭異的蟲卵項鏈好像太大了XD

從今天早上看到題目到上完茶磚禪繞,我竟然莫名完成兩幅圖。中餐和課堂間的時間畫了白色圓磚,課堂上順便就偷渡一塊茶磚當挑戰。

老實說我個人不是有機圖樣迷,但用軟毛頭的筆畫Featherfall很合適,話再說回來,這種筆除了這個圖樣外還能畫什麼呢?至今我是還沒找到啦。老實說只畫一根的話很飄逸,但不知道為什麼我就不太想畫羽毛,所以硬是弄了個L型,讓分量重一點,雖然沒能重如泰山,倒也不至輕如鴻毛。

第三張就是片頭的茶磚啦!好像這是一個月來學到的第一個新元素。Sandy老師說這有種小清新風格,我則認為這張之於我一個全新的境界,超愛。

下一個挑戰發表時人就在多倫多了喔。

  1. Firstly, yes, organic is the right word for those patterns. Secondly, are you really trying to convince us you don't like doing them, and yet you do them so well? lovely work.

    1. Thank you for answer! hahaha......In Taiwan many CZTs love organic patterns and they teach mostly organic patterns......one of my CZTs even spent one class(2 hours) for drawing the featherfall.......I should be good with it after 2 hours :p I am personally a Mooka fan but like geometrical patterns more.

  2. Your featherfall is amazing, I admire how you have got it to look so feather like. I know the purpose of the pattern is to look like that but mine never does, In answer to your question, yes I love Heartswell - a fabulous pattern that I can't stop drawing.

    1. Thank you for comment. One of my CZT is really a master of drawing feather, I learned a lot from her.
