A Doodle is a Doodle-2

Some of you might remember a previous post on doodles. Now I'll share with you another doodle and a master drawing which is also explained in the previous post. I have oodles of doodles and master drawings.

Below is called "Duodenum Doodle" drawn with ink on Canson 11 x 14 acid free paper. This is only about half the drawing as I scanned it in and is too big for the scanner. I might add that this drawing is in no way indicative of an actual duodenum. It is just a doodle done to occupy my mind AND my hands. I've also added a nonsensical poem I just wrote about doodles.

What do doodles do?
Occupy the mind
to save you time
and keep you busy
when you’re in a tizzy
and your mind’s in a whir
and you think you’ll go stir
crazy as loon
below the full moon
when the weasel goes pop
you’re sure to stop
to doodle some more
in hopes the lore
will continue the fun
and you will run
for pen and paper
to scrap the scraper
and squiggle and dot
to stir up the plot
and scritch and scratch
and things like that
with circles and lines
and curves combine
to move about
there is no doubt….
that’s what doodles do.

The master drawing below is done with charcoal on 9 x 12 acid free paper. It is a copy of a drawing by Luca Signorelli (1445-1523) an Italian Renaissance painter.

Notice the 'S curve' of the figure? The S Curve is a traditional art concept in Ancient Greek sculpture and Roman sculpture where the figure's body and posture is depicted like a sinuous or serpentine "S". [/SIZE][/ALIGN]

I am retired from real 9 to 5 jobs. I do my artwork and occasionally write poetry. In September 2010, I moved to Fargo, ND after spending 60 years in Phoenix, Arizona. Now, five years later, July 2015, I'm back in Arizona. And yes, I love the heat!

    Yes, Pam, the Fat Rabbit that I mentioned and the Standing Bunny that Peppermint Linda mentions ARE one and the same. I mean, it's only 1 right butt cheek. It's NOT exactly a Texas prairie. So, odds are we're NOT going to find a butt load of rabbits on it. :lol:2 Birds? Nnnnggg, well, the thought crossed my mind yesterday that there might be some bird activity. Is the bird activity you are seeing … down at the ankles? I thought since yesterday that I saw some wings down there and no, NOT Buffalo Wings. :jester: It's kind of reminiscent of I think the ole Comics Super Hero The Submariner has little wings on his ankles. Or some Super Hero does anyway.Did you see the little baby White Panther's head yet?Uh Oh! You know what I just saw? On the far side of the left shoulder, there is ALMOST Mick Jagger's Big Tongue from the Rolling Stones logo! :eyes: :yikes: :insane: The only thing that spoils it from being a better replica of that tongue is that this one has a pointy tip at the bottom. I now also see either a Chicken Leg or a short Fat Baseball Bat. It's on the very lowest part of the left leg.

    Haven't got that far down yet. :p Originally posted by Suntana:

    Yup, forgot to mention that.

    Darko, I wish I knew how to use a pc program to draw into the original drawing to show you what we are seeing. I know you'd see it then.

  5. Suntana says:

    WHAT? So you're saying the 2 birds are also on one or the other butt cheek in addition to the Fat Rabbit? A multitude of birds and rabbits … that must be some friggin' Magician's Paradise Prop of a Butt! :jester:

    😆 😆 😆 The head of an eagle is on the left part of his back, beginning at his waist. The other is a flying bird on the right side of his back with its head and beak going towards the 'crack'. :left: :right: :zip:

  7. Suntana says:

    Oh, Pam, I did mean to tell Darko that later on in the day, I'd try to send him a Windows Paint illustration depicting where the various hallucinations objects are.

  8. Suntana says:

    Day-Um! I'm NOT seeing the eagle and the other bird at this moment. I'll have to keep trying. But, in trying to focus on the "crack" landmark or buttmark … now I saw a HAND coming out of the butt! :insane: I even see a Ring on the ring finger. :eyes:

  9. PainterWoman says:

    I see a slightly folded hand resting on the small of the back. I see the ring too and that is the eye of the flying bird.

  10. PainterWoman says:

    As to the eagle, or maybe it looks more like a vulture, it is a large head and beak pointing upwards along the curve of the spine, and its neck resting on the waist or left hip.

  11. Suntana says:

    Ohhhhh! I see now which one you mean is the eagle. Whew! That one was giving me a work out. I was totally looking for it way somewhere else. I knew something was going on in that area, but 3 other things came to mind. I saw that area as either a Fish, a Dolphin or :left: :right: one of those Black-hooded Guillotine Operators! :yikes: Now I see a Goose-like bird above the left buttock. The ringed Hand is petting the bird's long neck. But, I still can't make YOUR bird materialize, Pam.

    these doodles made my head spinning around while I was trying to find out what they look like! 🙂

    Mine too when I look at it but not when I was drawing it.

    the s curve as you call it was called 'contraposto' in the old days. i still think like that when i draw figures… the movement is important.love the duodenum… and the funny poem. :happy:
