Here is my first flash sheet. Was learning how to draw chrysanthemums, so I decided to go with that theme. Basic flower, a mantis as they are insects usually associated with such Asian iconography, skull for death and flower buds and mating ladybugs for rebirth. This is because I understand chrysanthemums are placed on coffins or somewhere in a funeral, and represent death and rebirth.
First attempt so it's a little clumsy, lacking a lot of black and there's too much mid-tones, and the composition is also quite amateur. Boss reckons it's good for a first attempt. Expect some different subject matter soon.

Pen and ink on watercolour paper.
30 x 21 cm.

I wanted a few of them to fill up that space, and I guess it just was appropriate with the theme of rebirth.
