Theme for my moly


I haven't started drawing inside the monster yet, but after more time of getting to know each other —as you can see above— I think I have a theme for it. It's going to be "HORIZON". I am a sucker for photo panoramics, those where you snap several photos of a skyline and stich them together. I have several at home waiting for a frame. My favorite is one I did of San Francisco from Alcatraz that spans from the Bay Bridge to the Golden Gate. So, I thought my moly could be the drawing equivalent of a photo panoramic, with a continuous horizon line that each of us follows through the pages. Does it sound okay? Hope this doesn't make it any more harder than it already is!

Oh I really really like that theme. Yes, definately. I too am giving mine a theme. It's a broad theme, nothing too rigid. Nothing too scary.

I recieved my Moley today (thanks Miguel!) and I absolutley can't wait to get started.

Brilliant drawing Gabi...and so useful too.

Also, what I meant to say first time around was that the theme works perfectly with the format of this Moley.

Cool.

Yes Gabi, this sounds like a nifty (!) theme. This zig zag Moly begs for it!
It might force me to sketch outside a bit. By then, the weather on the east coast might allow it.
Great drawing too. I toyed with the idea of drawing mine open as well -- but as you saw, i opted for the 'closed' view.
