The "anatomy" of a recent doodle for Austria. Experimented with ink and colored penciled cutouts, which I then pieced together in Photoshop. Slowly finding my way to a happy medium where I can mix cutout shapes, drawings, and painted elements, reserving Photoshop as a final-stage editing tool.
The doodle itself is based on the lyrics of the Austrian national anthem:
Land of Mountains, Land by the Stream, Land of fields, land of cathedrals, Land of hammers, with a promising future, Home to great daughters and sons, A nation highly blessed with beauty, Much-praised Austria!
About the only things missing are hammers and the future!
